But, they do get back together after a long wait. At the end of season 2 Colt goes to Abby preparing his marriage proposal, but does not propose after finding out his previous girlfriend Heather became pregnant after hooking up with Colt prior to his rekindled relationship with Abby.
Lucky for Colt, the note proves to Abby that he has changed. The following night, at a belated birthday dinner, Abby presents Colt with a series of gifts — including their divorce papers. She tells him that she never signed them. She saw the note on his phone, and it broke her heart knowing that he was still fighting for their relationship while he was on the brink of death. Colt gets up from his seat and kisses his wife, signifying that these two lovebirds are gonna find a way to make it work.
When Colt starts tearing up, Rooster taunts his brother, just like old times. “Are you gonna cry? Is that how you wanna go out?” he asks. “When I went off that cliff, I was giving double birds the whole way down.”
Colt then says that he’d like to hang out with Rooster and drink together, just like old times — and Rooster tells him that they can do that right now. “Just walk towards the light,” he says. Luckily, the light in the distance isn’t a pathway to heaven, but the headlights on Luke’s car. He and Abby jump out and get Colt out from behind his truck, then rush him to the emergency room where he is ultimately stabilized. He walks away from the accident with mild frostbite and a few sprained ribs.
At the hospital, Abby takes Colt’s phone; she needs his social security number to finish filling out all the paperwork. She opens Notes and finds something that her estranged husband dictated to Siri while he was trapped. “If you got this, it means I didn’t make it,” it reads. “All I’m thinking right now is about you and Peyton. Don’t tell her I was a liar. Please. I know I’ve made a lot of mistakes. Be as angry as you gotta be… Always got angry at myself. And I’m sorry if I ever made you feel like you couldn’t trust me. The worst part is, I never got the chance to prove to you that I changed. I love you.”
Yep, it’s Rooster, and he’s coming to Colt all the way from heaven. “I was just in a hot tub with Dale Earnhardt, Merle Haggard and Gandhi,” he says. “Guess who’s got the biggest junk? Spoiler alert: me.”
In order to get Lisa Neumann to drop the lawsuit against him, Colt needs to prove that her prize bull infected his heifers. First he finds a picture of Lisa and her bull on the Mooney ranch, which recently suffered a trich outbreak. He then needs confirmation that the photo was taken before the steer moseyed on over to Iron River.
Colt also finds out that Luke suffered a devastating loss. At the start of the episode, his cousin reveals that Koosh killed himself. Worried that he’ll suffer the same fate, Luke asks Beau to accompany him to his first veterans’ support group meeting. There, the PTSD-stricken Army vet tells the story of an Iraqi fruit vendor named Asif, a “really good dude” who “used to sneak fruit to the kids that couldn’t afford it.”
After the party, all the Bennetts gather for a nightcap. It’s the last time they’ll all be together for a while, now that Maggie’s moving to Florida to live on a commune with her new partner Julie. Colt takes the opportunity to raise a glass to Iron River, to his loved ones, and to his late brother Rooster. “Cheers to the f—king Bennetts!” Maggie exclaims, as the series draws to a close.
Luke isn’t the only one beginning to put the pieces of his life back together. Earlier on that same day, Mary visits Joanne to pay back her bail. There, she reveals that the D.A. offered her a plea bargain — probation and an ankle monitor instead of jail time — and she took it. Mary and Luke eventually convene at Maggie’s Christmas Eve party, where she accepts his offer to go on a proper first date. Meanwhile, across the room, Heather takes a moment to thank Colt for everything he’s done to protect her.
Then, on one fateful day, “my unit was asked to lead an assault on some insurgents,” Luke recalls. “We kick down this door, and Asif is standing there on the other side, pointing a gun at me… He shot and missed me, so Koosh took him out… and there’s just not really a day that goes by that I don’t see his face. I assume it’s the same for Koosh — or it was. He killed himself a couple days ago, I imagine, because of moments like that. And it f—king scares me, because I have a hundred moments like that.” The support group leader thanks Luke for his share, then Luke says that he’ll be back again next week.
