Why Is John Running for Governor in Yellowstone Season 4 Episode 7?

Governor Perry makes an unexpected entrance into the show, immediately indicating to viewers that she has some important business to discuss.

Perry isn’t one to mince things, and she makes it obvious that she intends to endorse Jamie for Governor of Montana as she runs for the Senate. John, on the other hand, is opposed to the proposal because he believes Jamie will have too much power.

Jamie, according to Perry, is a good politician who comes from the well-respected Dutton family, making him the ideal choice.

Unfortunately, Perry is unaware of all of the Dutton family’s secrets, including the recent tensions between John and Jamie after Jamie’s adoption was exposed.

Despite this, John believes Jamie should be kept out of the office and decides to enter.

He tries to drop out of the race before it even begins, but Beth persuades him otherwise. She declares that as Governor of Montana, John will have complete authority to deal with any harm to his family or property.

John agrees since the opportunity is too excellent to pass up. On the surface, John looks to be running for Governor to outdo Jamie, but he is evidently working in the ranch’s and the state’s best interests.

Jamie is open to the concept of allowing Market Equities to continue operating in Montana, despite the fact that doing so would jeopardise John’s and the state’s ranchers’ way of life.

As a result, in John’s opinion, he is not a suitable choice. John is a more likeable candidate in the public eye since he wants to safeguard the state’s conservative beliefs and lifestyle.

What Does Lloyd Get When He Goes To The Pawnshop?

Lloyd and Walker have been at odds with each other for the past few episodes. John forces the two guys to fight in the sixth episode, demonstrating that their animosity is trivial and infantile.

Walker and Lloyd appear to have reached an agreement in front of John. However, it shows in the seventh episode that Lloyd still has a grudge against Walker and wants to kill him.

Lloyd visits a pawn shop and exchanges a valuable belt buckle for a mystery item. He slams his belt buckle against a row of revolvers, implying that he intends to procure a weapon with which to put an end to Walker’s life.

Lloyd, on the other hand, returns to the bunkhouse with a guitar instead of a rifle!

Lloyd gives Walker the guitar as an apology for ruining the cowboy’s instrument in the previous episode, much to everyone’s amazement at the bunkhouse.

As a result, Lloyd atones for instigating the feud. Walker sings a song dedicated to Lloyd, and the fight is over!
