Monica’s Fate in Yellowstone

Monica has faced her fair share of death scares in the five seasons of ‘Yellowstone.’ Her narrative revolves around dealing with the consequences of the Dutton family’s foes targeting her and her son, Tate. Meanwhile, Monica is also forced to protect her relationship with Kayce amidst the challenges Kayce faces due to his responsibility and love for his family. The fourth season depicts Kayce having spiritual visions of wolves, and he strives to understand their meaning.

After undertaking a ritual under the guidance of Chief Thomas Rainwater and Mo Brings Plenty, Kayce realizes that his visions are asking him to choose between Monica and the ranch. In the fifth season, Kayce chooses Monica and distances himself from the Yellowstone Dutton Ranch. However, in the eighth episode, titled ‘A Knife and No Coin,’ John requests Monica to let Kayce help him run the ranch after Rip heads to Texas on a new assignment.

Monica agrees and decides to move to the East Camp with Kayce and Tate. However, the decision itself could hint at a tragic fate for Monica. Despite Kayce’s efforts to distance himself from the ranch, he is inadvertently drawn back to it. In the latest instance, it is Monica who brings Kayce back to the Yellowstone Ranch. Therefore, it is likely that Kayce will have to choose the ranch over Monica at some point. As a result, Monica could once again be forced to face dangerous situations without Kayce. However, she might not survive this time and could die a tragic death.
