Yellowstone Star Kelsey Asbille Recalls Tense Kayce Fight As One Of Her Favorite Moments

Couples in "Yellowstone" are required to go through some major hurdles for love. Take Kayce Dutton (Luke Grimes) and Monica Dutton (Kelsey Asbille). The pair begin "Yellowstone," keeping their distance from Kayce's father, John Dutton (Kevin Costner). But as they get sucked into the power struggles of the Yellowstone Ranch, they've been through a separation, lose a child, and both are nearly killed in an assassination attempt on the Dutton clan orchestrated by Garrett Randall (Will Patton).

While Beth Dutton (Kelly Reilly) and Rip Wheeler (Cole Hauser) have stolen the hearts of viewers as their relationship blossomed from insincere contempt on Beth's part in "Yellowstone" Season 1, Kayce and Monica often stand as the heart of the series. The couple is the most independent of the ranch. They have their own family to prioritize, with their son Tate Dutton (Brecken Merrill) being of two worlds, the cowboy ranchers willing to die for their ranch on his father's side, and the Native Americans holding onto a rich heritage and history on his mother's.

Asbille opened up in an interview about the sometimes fiery tension between Kayce and Monica and revealed one major back-and-forth between the two stands as one of her favorite moments from the show.

Kelsey Asbille said she and Luke Grimes have fun with Yellowstone fight scenes

While promoting "Yellowstone" Season 4, Kelsey Asbille revealed the fights between Monica and Kayce are actually fun. In the fourth season, the two really duke it out, with Monica telling Kayce she hates him in the fourth season episode "All I See Is You" as she's still recovering from being attacked. It's one of multiple fiery exchanges between the two over the course of the Taylor Sheridan-created series.

"They're fiercely protective of each other, and they want to do everything right, and sometimes you've gotta fight. Luke and I had so much fun doing that scene of just — there are some things they got to say to each other, and it's about time," she said in November 2021 to JoBlo.

Luke Grimes has mentioned the "I hate you" moment as one of the biggest blowouts between the two characters and said the bitterness compared to others brought out similarities viewers may not have seen between Kayce and his father. "Playing that in that moment, I felt maybe he felt like he was becoming more like the parts of his father that he doesn't like or he saw that he was falling in line with the attitude of that place, and I think it scared him," Grimes told TV Line in November 2021. The actor elaborated further, describing the situation as a turning point for his character as his marriage neared a dangerous precipice.
