“1923” wrapped up Season 1 with Banner Creighton’s (Jerome Flynn) release from prison, getting away with murdering the fathers of Jack and Elizabeth. Jack and Jacob (Harrison Ford) can do nothing but watch as Banner taunts them as he walks free, setting up a perfect revenge story for Jack moving forward.
“Sitting back is driving him nuts a little bit,” Darren Mann told Insider. “He’s itching to get back at Banner. Especially when he makes a remark like that about Elizabeth and what we’ve been through.” Banner nearly killed Jack’s bride, so naturally, the Dutton boy is eager to get his hands on Banner. “Jack is just waiting to get his revenge,” the actor continued. “He’s been wanting to go back after him for a long time, but he’s not in charge at this time, right? So he’s got to listen to Jacob, but I think the whole time Jack has been vying to go back and get revenge.”
Creator Taylor Sheridan revealed to Deadline that he always envisioned “1923” in two installments to properly tell the story, so fans will have to wait and see if Jack fulfills his quest for revenge in Season 2.
