In four seasons of Yellowstone Beth has done a lot of questionable things from committing corporate espionage to blackmailing her adopted brother into murdering his biological father.
But few and far between are the actions that got as big a reaction from viewers as her refusal to let young Carter call her mama in Season 4s finale. Revisit the heartbreaking moment via TVLines detailed recap.America went after me for that Kelly Reilly says with a laugh. I was like Thats the character not me. But I get it. I wish she would [let herself be a mother to him too.But think about it she adds. If she has telling this kid that she has just met Yeah I will be your mom thats not truthful to him.
Though what Beth wound up saying to the orphan might not have been what he or the audience wanted to hear it at least was not BS. She goes You had a mom. She died. I can not replace that. But I will be your friend recalls Reilly. I think theres something honorable about that.Besides fans can still look forward to the day that maybe just maybe Beth will change her tune where Carter is concerned. Right now she has carrying a lot of baggage stemming from her inability to give husband Rip a child of their own. However I hope that eventually she forgives herself because I think she will be even more powerful then says her portrayer. Just not too soon. Theres too much fun to be had before that.
