Monica (played by Kelsey Asbille) and Kayce Dutton (Luke Grimes) have been through more than their fair share of traumatic and harrowing storylines throughout Yellowstone’s five-season run on Paramount Network so far. From Monica’s devastating brain injury to Tate’s (Brecken Merrill) PTSD battle and Kayce’s vision quest, John’s (Kevin Costner) youngest and his other half were put through the wringer prior to the fifth series premiere this past weekend. However, things didn’t get any easier for the two when the premiere episode delivered another tear-jerking twist to their story.

To recap, season five of Yellowstone kicked off with a jump forward in time from the season four finale. 

John was now being sworn in as Governor of Montana, Monica’s due date was right around the corner, and elsewhere fans branded Carter (Finn Little) now “unrecognisable”.

Kayce was still hard at work as Livestock Commissioner, however, meaning he spent most of his time away from home and keeping Montana’s agricultural front running smooth. 

However, in season five, episode one, he was forced to drop everything when a distressed Monica called him to let her know she was going into labour.

Monica, despite being hunched over in pain, grabbed Tate and the pair made their way to the hospital while Kayce hastily made his way to meet her there.

Sadly, Monica, Tate and the unborn child never made it to the hospital of their own accord, instead crashing when Monica’s pain and distractions led to her veering off the road. 

At the end of episode one of season five, fans learned that while Tate and Monica were okay, she had lost her baby.

Tate told his grandfather when he arrived he had a brother “for an hour”. 

John then peered his head into Monica’s hospital room where a distraught Kayce cuddled up to console his other half.

As if the devastating twist wasn’t enough to hit fans hard, Tate then dropped the bombshell that Kayce and Monica had named their son John before his death.

Episode two then opened with a flashback of the aftermath of the crash, showing how a bloodied Monica was flung from her car and Tate was left to scramble to get help.

Fans will undoubtedly be gripped to see how Kayce and Monica will overcome this latest heartbreaking twist to their tale.
