WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD!
How ‘1883’ Season Finale Set Up Yellowstone Season 5 and 1932?
James Dutton and his family arrive in Montana in the season 1 finale of ‘1883,’ where they meet Spotted Eagle, the head of a Native American clan.
Spotted Eagle notices Elsa is seriously injured and attempts to treat her using his tribe’s methods. However, it is quickly apparent that Elsa’s death is unavoidable. As a result, James resolves to choose a suitable burial site for Elsa.
Elsa’s resting place will become the family’s new home. Elsa also wants to choose her final resting place while she is still alive. As a result, James is running out of time to locate suitable property.
When Spotted Eagle learns of James’ predicament, he leads him to Paradise Valley. Spotted Eagle, on the other hand, tells James that after seven generations, his family members would rise up and seek to reclaim the territory from James’ descendants.
James must also allow the tribe’s members to hunt for food on the land. James accepts the rules and joins Elsa in Paradise Valley. Elsa passes away on the property that will eventually become the Yellowstone Ranch.

Tate Dutton, John’s grandson, is a sixth-generation Dutton. The Duttons, on the other hand, are having a hard time preserving their land and frequently clash with the Broken Rock Reservation, a Native American settlement.
As a result, it appears that the events predicted by Spotted Eagle are already taking shape. As a result, the ‘1883’ finale lays the stage for a massive battle between the Duttons and the Native Americans in the upcoming fifth season of ‘Yellowstone.’
Second, the season 1 finale appears to have established the plot for ‘1932,’ a new spinoff series set in the twentieth century that would follow a new generation of Duttons as they deal with a variety of difficulties.
James is already gone by 1932, and his family and successors are unlikely to remember his vow to Spotted Eagle. The land is an extension of the Dutton family for them. Elsa’s death and burial are most likely the sources of this worldview.
As a result, the Duttons in ‘1932‘ may wind up breaching their vow to Spotted Eagle in order to safeguard their beloved land, causing a confrontation with the Duttons in ‘Yellowstone.’
