About Jefferson White’s role as Jimmy

He chose Emily, and he chose this new life in Texas. I cross my fingers that it’s smooth sailing for him because it’s a beautiful thing. It’s the first time in his life he has a little bit of agency… There’s certainly more Jimmy in store. Whether it’s Montana or Texas, you’ll have to wait and find out.
What can we expect for Jimmy in Yellowstone season 5?
