The Season 1 finale of "1883," the Paramount+ prequel series to Paramount's "Yellowstone," is a heartbreaking episode. Additionally, fans are talking about symbolism that appears in the final scene.

Others think the hummingbird represents Elsa (Isabel May), whose death was another emotional gut punch in the finale. No definitive answer has emerged, but the moment has made an incredibly emotional scene even more powerful.
