In an interview with Entertainment Weekly (opens in new tab), Kelly Reilly, the actor who plays Beth Dutton, commented that Beth's marriage to Rip is not set to make any major changes to her characterization."Beth has always been devoted to Rip," Kelly said. "Marriage does not change her. I think his love for her and hers for him is one of the very few things that keeps her demons at arm's length (mostly)."

In the same interview, Cole Hauser, who plays Rip Wheeler, commented, "What I like about what [Taylor Sheridan] wrote is that he slow burns this year with me and Beth. In the beginning, there's some wonderful moments between the two of us, some stuff that she's going through in her past, that she's having to acknowledge for the first time, and me trying to help her through that."

Kelly added, "The war feels internal this year for her. [She's] haunted by the past, afraid for the future and fighting with all she has for the present moment."

In an interview with Vulture (opens in new tab), Kelly also spoke about Beth's relationship with her brother Jamie. As fans of the show will know, Beth and Jamie have a complicated relationship as Beth blames Jamie for her infertility after he took her to an abortion clinic. He also became a double-crossing lawyer, and later Attorney General, which caused a lot of strife in the show.

At the end of season 4 fans watched as Beth blackmails Jamie to kill his biological father as revenge for his suspected attempt on their father's life. This then blew up as it was revealed that Jamie did in fact try to have their father John Dutton killed.

Speaking about where this leaves Beth and Jamie in season 5, Kelly said, "In her mind, Jamie tried to kill her father. If you think about what that would do to someone like Beth, there is no end point. I don’t think she ever goes, 'I’m going to wrap this up and forgive him.' I don’t think that’s in Beth."
