'Yellowstone's Thomas Rainwater never got the story he deserved

On Yellowstone, the Dutton family always gets the best stories

, most interesting lines, and most narrative action.

Given that the series centers around John Dutton (Kevin Costner)

and his broken family, it makes sense that the other people would generally take a back seat.

Unfortunately, this means that some of Yellowstone's most

interesting characters are often sidelined in favor of second-guess Beth

(Kelly Reilly) and Jamie (Wes Bentley).

Chief among these oft-maligned characters is none other than Gil

Birmingham's Thomas Rainwater, who deserves far more than Yellowstone.
