Speaking to TVLine, the actor and country music star who stars in the Yellowstone prequel series opposite his real-life wife Faith Hill revealed that his character has very little hope for his daughter's survival. Asked whether James Dutton thinks Elsa will manage to recover from the wounds she sustained in the penultimate episode, he said: "I don't think he has any hope at all."

"I think James doubted it every single day and every single moment," he said, but added: "I don't think it was in the Dutton genetics to turn around and stop."

He continued: "Certainly there was doubt every day about what he had gotten his family into, and you read it in his eyes a lot of the time when things were going badly… He's a tough guy, but he cared a lot about everybody that was on that trip. He may not have shown it, but you could see by his actions, he put his life on the line for everybody, constantly."

Do you think Elsa will survive the series finale?

As fans will recall, the latest episode of the Paramount+ series saw Elsa, played by actress Isabel May, fighting for her life after being shot with an arrow following a misunderstanding with some Native Americans.

Viewers will have to wait until Sunday to find out Elsa's fate when the show airs its highly-anticipated season one finale. While fans are no doubt dreading the end of the show, the good news is that the show has been renewed for a second season so will be returning for more episodes.
