Spoiler alert: This article contains spoilers for those who aren't caught up with Yellowstone Season 4.
6666, the forthcoming Yellowstone spinoff set on the historic Texas ranch 6666, could portray the latest developments in Jimmy Hurdstrom's (Jefferson White) relationship with Emily (Katherine Kelly) if the Season 4 finale of Yellowstone is anything to go by.
Jimmy Hurdstrom asks his new girlfriend to wait for him in Season 4, Episode 9 of 'Yellowstone.'
Jimmy Hurdstrom's new girlfriend, Emily, first appeared on Yellowstone in Season 4, Episode 7, fast replacing Mia (Eden Brolin), the barrel racer girl who was there for Jimmy throughout his recovery following the disastrous accident portrayed in the Season 3 finale.
The veterinary technician working at the 6666 Ranch immediately sweeps Jimmy off his feet with her no-nonsense approach and brazen honesty. As Emily casually informs Jimmy, he is "one of six single guys in [the] county under 30" — and with that, he is sold.
But before he can make the big move (and broach the topic of grabbing dinner together), Emily makes sure to give Jimmy a task he won't forget anytime soon, asking him to collect semen from a horse for her. (Which he does, by the way.)
Emily gets him to follow up on his promise and implement the previously discussed plans in Season 4, Episode 8. The romantic outing gives way to positively non-PG-friendly scenes, signaling to fans that Jimmy and Mia are officially a thing of the past.
In Season 4, Episode 9, Jimmy compares loving Emily to coming down with a bad bout of venereal disease. In all fairness, he makes the comment after she warns him that missing her is a serious condition. (That's true love for you.)
In Season 4, Episode 9, Jimmy tells Emily that he will be away because of a rodeo. The rodeo turns into something more long-term, thanks to Travis Wheatley (Taylor Sheridan), the horse trader who tells Jimmy that it's time to go home.
He promptly heads back to the Dutton Ranch, with Emily in tow. But once they step foot inside the bunkhouse in the Season 4 finale, Mia explodes, starting a fight with Emily. As Jefferson White, the actor portraying Jimmy on Yellowstone told Distractify, the conflict had quite an impact on his character.
"For Jimmy, the idea of hurting somebody, of causing somebody pain, is very difficult. Jimmy really hated to have to hurt Mia," Jefferson said. "He was put in a position where he really had to choose between Mia and Emily. The most merciful thing was to be honest. The most merciful thing was to express exactly how he felt, which was that his future is with Emily."
Will 6666 capture the next chapter in Jimmy's life with Emily — or will Mia pay an unexpected visit to the couple in Texas? There's only one way to find out.
Who plays Emily on 'Yellowstone?' Will the 6666 vet appear on the 'Yellowstone' spinoff '6666'?
Kathryn Kelly, the actress portraying Jimmy's new girlfriend, Emily, made her debut in Season 4 of Yellowstone. Before landing Emily's role on Yellowstone, Kathryn appeared in hit TV shows like Nashville, where she starred alongside Connie Britton and Hayden Panettiere.
What's more, Kathryn also appeared in Dolly Parton's Heartstrings, the Netflix comedy-drama that came out in 2019, and The Originals. When she's not busy shooting hit shows, she likes to embark on trips and take exceptional photographs. (At least, according to her Instagram.)
Season 4, Episode 10 of Yellowstone airs on Jan. 2, 2022, at 8 p.m. EST on Paramount Network.
