Viewers have adored watching Colby and Teeter’s romance blossom throughout the latest season of Yellowstone. Unfortunately, one of their best moments in the Paramount series fell victim to a rather embarrassing plot hole.

A cheeky skinny dipping session in the third season of Yellowstone quickly turned into a nasty confrontation with the Duttons’ rivals. 

Unfortunately, some fans were distracted by the tense moment by one of the show’s most blinding continuity mistakes it’s seen so far.

Colby (played by Denim Richards) and Teeter (Jennifer Landon) have become firm fan favourites thanks to their tender relationship in the third season of Yellowstone.

With their employer, John Dutton (Kevin Costner) potentially hospitalised, the endearing couple and the rest of the ranch hands will be back with a vengeance in season four.

Before that happens, the couple’s lives were threatened by rival rancher Wade Morrow (Boots Southerland) when Teeter tried to convince Colby into a relaxing skinny dipping session.

Their cheeky evening’s fun was ruined in the eighth episode of the latest season upon the arrival of Wade and his son, Clint Morrow (Brent Walker).

The ruthless Morrows proceeded to whip the pair with lassos and trample them in the lake, leaving their fates unknown before the credits rolled.

Thankfully, the pair washed up on shore in the next episode, securing their survival for the rest of the season and into the fourth instalment.

Viewers may have been glad to see the pair alive, but one eagle-eyed Yellowstone fan took issue with the strange time frame between the two scenes.

Redditor THE_UPV0TER queried: “So are we just going to overlook the fact that Colby and Teeter went under the water in broad daylight and came back up in pitch black?”

Upon a second glance, it certainly seems like a considerable stretch of time passed between the Morrows’ attack and Colby and Teeter eventually surfacing. 

On one hand, it isn’t unreasonable to assume the pair may have taken some time in the water to recover from the vicious ambush.

But, while the two scenes do take place across multiple episodes, the logic breaks down when you consider the fact that Colby and Teeter would have had to spend several hours wading in the river before emerging.

Not to mention the fact the couple appeared desperate to get out and sported some rather nasty bruises when they got back to land.

TV and film fans have often complained of ludicrous transitions from day to night in the past thanks to choppy editing.

For some, though, this particularly distracting moment in Yellowstone’s otherwise compelling third entry was the final straw.

Another disgruntled fan responded: “Maybe since the last episode ended with them getting stomped on they thought we wouldn’t notice. They are getting really lazy this season.”

Following some slight coronavirus delays, production is now back on schedule in the series’ Montana locations.

Hopefully the upcoming fourth season will heed fans’ complaints and pay a little more attention to continuity this time round.

Yellowstone will return with season 4 in 2021 on Paramount and Peacock.
