Jamie’s birth father was revealed to be Garrett Randall, a local man who was convicted of beating his wife, Jamie’s mother Phyllis Randall, to death many years ago. Say what?!

Given the Yellowstone bombshell, viewers are desperate to learn more about Jamie Dutton’s birth father. Who is Garrett Randall on Yellowstone? Will we see more of the Garrett Randall Yellowstone plot line? Here’s everything you need to know!

**Spoilers ahead for Yellowstone Season 3 Episode 7, “The Beating”**


During last night’s episode of Yellowstone, Jamie Dutton (Wes Bentley) is asked for a copy of his birth certificate, and at the records counter, he learns a secret that turns his world upside down. “You didn’t tell me you were adopted?” the clerk says. When he denies it, she lets him see his birth certificate, revealing once and for all that John Dutton is not his birth father.

Instead, the document shows that Jamie’s birth parents are Garrett and Phyllis Randall, from Bozeman, Montana. He initially insists that this must be someone else’s birth certificate, but when the clerk shows him an adoption certificate, he learns that his father, Garrett Randall, signed away his son to the Duttons.


But that wasn’t the only thing Jamie learned about his birth father. The clerk also handed over a criminal court record, which revealed that Garrett Randall was convicted of second-degree murder for beating his wife to death when Jamie was just three months old.

Later, Jamie confronts John about the situation, and John reveals that he lied to protect him from the truth. “I protected you, I guided you, I loved you, you can call me whatever you want, Jamie, but I will call you son, because I have earned the right, it is the hardest thing I have ever done,” says John. “You are a resourceful man so I am sure you can find him and you can look at his black fucking heart, his rotten soul. You can look into his eyes, Jamie and you get to choose. You can choose who you call father.”


As of now, Yellowstone viewers have yet to see Garrett Randall in the flesh, but all signs point to us meeting him soon. Before his confrontation with John, Jamie tells his assistant to find out if Garrett has been paroled, so he’s clearly interested in his birth father. And as John makes clear, Jamie has an opportunity to look into Garrett’s eyes and choose what life he wants to lead. What will he decide?

Yellowstone airs every Sunday at 9/8c on Paramount Network.
