Canadian actor Currie Graham recently appeared in 1923 as Chadwick Benton. He served as the attorney for Banner Creighton but was originally Donald Whitfield's lawyer. The oil tycoon instructed him to get his henchman, Banner, out of prison.

Banner had previously ambushed the Dutton family over a conflict with Jacob Dutton. John Dutton Sr. was killed in the ambush, with Jacob, Elizabeth, and Jack getting injured.

Jack and Elizabeth's injuries weren't severe but it briefly looked like Jacob would not survive the attack as his wounds were deep and deadly. This entire massacre of the Duttons was orchestrated by Banner Creighton.

In episode 7 of 1923, Banner was finally arrested for his crimes but preparations for his bail are already in place. Donald Whitfield and Chadwick Benton are going all out to get him out of prison and continue the invasion of the Dutton ranch.

Their main enemies during this time were a shepherd turned henchman, Banner Creighton and a wealthy oil tycoon named Donald Whitfield.

The official synopsis of the show reads:

"1923, a Yellowstone origin story, introduces a new generation of the Dutton family as they explore the early twentieth century when pandemics, historic drought, the end of Prohibition and the Great Depression all plague the mountain west, and the Duttons who call it home."
