It’s been a year’s wait and we’re on the verge of being delivered the final episodes of AMC’s western drama, “Hell on Wheels.” The story began as a revenge story for former Confederate soldier Cullen Bohannon (Anson Mount) but in the process, the man found himself helming the biggest project of his life: construction of the Central Pacific Railroad.
Multiple storylines are sure to be tied up in this remaining episodes. History says America’s first transcontinental railroad did indeed come to completion, so one has to assume Bohannon’s mission here will eventually come to completion, as well. How exactly will the ever greedy Thomas Durant (Colm Meaney) fit into the picture? Given the events that transpired in previous episodes, it’s safe to say he’s only one piece of the potentially violent puzzle that Bohannon will have to contend with.
The threats from Durant and Chang (Byron Mann) are definitely something to be concerned with, but the broiling rivalry between Cullen and the devilish Swede (Christopher Heyerdahl) is what we’re most focused on. How exactly will that final showdown take place? Blood will most definitely be spilled.
