Jamie (Wes Bentley) remembers that his biological father, Garrett Randall (Will Patton), orchestrated the attempted killings of his adoptive family, the Duttons, despite his loving reunion with Christina and his son. At the breakfast table, Jamie confronts Garrett with a gun in Yellowstone Season 4 Episode 6.
Garrett: “Just shoot me. I’d much prefer that than having my son yell at me in the house I built for you. Yes, I built it. I gave you the strength to walk from the shadow of that fucking land baron you call a father for the entire lie of your life.”
Jamie: Duttons his family.
Garrett continues: “They’re not your family. This is your family. That baby is your family. That woman will be part of your family too. I’ll give you my word I’ll build that for you too.”
Jamie: What about right or wrong?
Garrett: There’s no such thing. There’s no such thing as right or wrong. There’s no such thing as fear or moral. Those are words men invented to scare and shame other men to take back what they’ve stolen. John Dutton used you, just like he used all his children to scare and shame others so nobody takes back what he stole. You know that’s true. I have no agenda but giving you back the family you never had and the legacy he robbed from you. Did I try to kill him? You’re damned right I did, and I’ll keep tryin’ till I get it right. That’s how much I love you.

Jamie: I’d miss my brother.
Garrett: He’s not your brother.
Jamie: In my heart, he’s my brother.
Garrett: In your imagination. You barely know him! You miss what you thought you were, that’s all. You’ll miss that whether you’re alive or not.
