Yellowstone fans witnessed a casual romance in the first three seasons between John Dutton and Montana governor Lynelle Perry, played by Wendy Moniz. Somehow, in Season 4 John Dutton ends up connected to Summer Higgins after he bails her out of jail. The apparent irony in the relationship between an environmental activist and the owner of one of the biggest ranches in Montana shouldn’t escape Yellowstone fans.
In 2021, Perabo told the Decider “When Summer first meets John, she sees him as a kind of monolith,” adding that “what she starts to understand is that John cares as much about the land as she does. They come from really different worlds. They’re both real fighters in their own ways for the conservation of the land. He teaches her a lot and broadens her perspective.”
