The first episode of the TV show "1923" reveals which main character will survive until the end. The show was originally intended to be the second season of the "Yellowstone" prequel "1883," but due to confusion among executives, it became its own series. "1923" attracted a notable cast, and season 1 sets up the Dutton family's fight to keep their ranch. The narration in the first episode hints that one of James' children will live through the trials of the 20th century. This implies that Spencer, the war hero turned game hunter, will survive until the end.
