Mia (Eden Brolin) first appeared on a Season 3 episode of Yellowstone, titled "An Acceptable Surrender," and fans were immediately smitten.

The barrel racer amazed viewers with her easy-going, laid-back personality, and with her impeccable ability to charm the thief-turned-ranch hand, Jimmy Hurdstrom (Jefferson White). So, what's there to know about the character? Is she about to become Jimmy's girlfriend?

A recent 'Yellowstone' episode captured Jimmy's first encounter with Mia, his new girlfriend.

"An Acceptable Surrender" saw Mia handle Jimmy's romantic advances with unparalleled grace and sophistication. Instead of shunning him, she tried her best to make his job easier by strongly encouraging him to ask her out on a date. Her kindness left Jimmy completely speechless — so much so that he failed to regain his composure before the much-anticipated rodeo would have begun.

Drunk on success, he lost the ability to concentrate on the task at hand, fell off his horse, and injured himself. Fortunately, the accident left Mia with no choice but to head over to the hospital, where she got to know him even better. 

Yellowstone fans received the new storyline with a great deal of enthusiasm, with many taking it to Twitter to express just how much they like Mia. 

"I'm CLAPPING like a little kid!  Jimmy, John Dutton, then Mia....." tweeted one fan. 

"Mia is definitely a go-getter. That’s one way to heal Jimmy," said another.

"Yeah I knew it Jimmy is a virgin. I am loving Jimmy and Mia!! @Yellowstone @_JeffersonWhite @edenbrolin," opined another person. 

Some fans are convinced that the harrowing accident is bound to bring Jimmy and Mia even closer together. Others have taken a much more pessimistic approach, going so far as to doubt whether Jimmy would be able to make it out from the hospital alive — let alone spend more time with his potential soulmate.
