Viewers could have anticipated seeing more of John’s story in “1923” given that the character acts as the connecting thread between the two series. However, the third episode of the show abruptly kills off the character.

Despite the fact that Badge Dale’s time in 1923 was brief, he admitted to ET at the film’s Los Angeles premiere on December 2 that the Dutton story is full of tragedy and danger. “This tale is really lovely. This family resembles pirates in certain ways. I believe the time to be lawless. People attempting to determine their identities and what they stand for, and [this] story dwells in that liminal space, “added the actor. “I believe it’s courageous, risky material because it’s about males stealing what other men have had.”

James Badge Dale is listed as a recurrent guest star for the first season of the show, in contrast to the actors portraying the other members of the Dutton family. It follows that his character’s demise in a first-season episode was probably preplanned. Although Dale is not expected to reappear in subsequent episodes, his death makes space for John Dutton’s brother, Spencer Dutton, to come back and take over the ranch.
