Back Where I Come From is the premiere of the first season of The Ranch and the first episode of the series overall.


When Colt Bennett returns home from Canada to try out for a semipro Denver team, he learns that his family's ranch has fallen on hard times.



Beau Bennett comes home to find his son Colt has returned home from Canada. He doesn't seem at all happy with the prospect of having him back. He knows Colt isn't there for the family, as he hasn't even paid them a visit in six years. Beau gives him a hard time, grilling him for the time he returned and said he would help out at the Ranch but ended up sneaking out at night in Rooster's truck. Colt gives up and decides to leave, saying it was a dumb idea to come back. Beau criticizes him for always giving up because of trivial reasons. Hearing that, Colt feels bad.

The Bennett men enter Maggie's bar, where Colt greets his mother after a long time. Maggie asks him if he's ready for his tryouts. Beau is surprised that Maggie knows about it, to which she says she stays in contact with her son and that he should try it. It is then revealed that they have separated and Maggie lives in her own Airstream now.
