Is Elsa Death In 1883?

Elsa Dutton is one of the most-loved characters from 1883. So, why the series did not capitalize on her popularity? Why did it turn her to such a terrible fate? Unlike other show leads who manage to survive even the deadliest incidents, why did 1883 choose to kill Elsa Dutton?

Well, the reason behind it is pretty simple, Elsa’s story is a self-contained arc, which implies that it was a creative decision to eliminate her character from the scene. Her death branches the story to a new turn where we will see Montana as the site for the Yellowstone ranch.

However, one of the hot questions that are trending is will Elsa continue to narrate the story, even after death? Well, the answer is not clear. However, as per the fan theories, Elsa has been narrating the story from the grave this whole time. So, it’s pretty much possible.

Therefore, though Isabel May left the scene as Elsa, we will be hearing her incredible narration skills in the upcoming seasons.

  1. I think it was the worst decision to kill off Elsa. I’m mad and heartbroken, I really admired her character and wanted to her live a long life. Yellowstone, I don’t like the series. It would have been better to continue 1883 and drop Yellowstone. 🙁

    1. Yellowstone was written to portray and evolution in time of people whose desire to be powerful and shove their lifestyle off on to others, at least that’s as I understand it, and turn the valley into a tourist trap and the farmers ranchers don’t want that but it’s being forced upon them.

    2. I hate Yellowstone and its soap opera thingy it has like Dallas back in the early 80’s or just any soap opera. So many of my friends and family and I love Kevin but not rest of the characters who make it a SOAP OPERA

  2. I will not watch Season 2 without Elsa! She was the best actor/actress on the show! Sam Elliott is great but the others are just mediocre to bad! I will just move on to the next Series of 1932.

  3. We love Yellowstone and watched every Season up to date, I loved 1883 and sadden they killed Elsa off but I will continue to watch Season 2 since we love Western Shows
