What the first season of HoW and its finale has taught us.
1) A man who talks of grand, improbable, and historic feats can be undone by a "fair-haired maiden of the West." (Also seen in the 1981 film Superman II - Lex Luthor and Miss Teschmacher)
2) A man who sets out on a vengeful path should Google the names of those he's after, sorry, Western Union the names. Pinkertons coulda told Cullen about the Sergeant if he woulda just asked them to.
3) "Proper" ladies are sexier with a little bit of blood and mud on them, especially if they have to fend for themselves at times. And costumers for women back then should get a "best supporting" award, if you know what I mean.
4) Freedom comes with a price, whether spiritual, emotional, or legal.
I began watching this series hopeful to see a railroad with trains, a revenge story, and some Indians standing their ground. Some of what I wanted was few and far between, but I come away now confident that the next 13 episodes will be on the right track.
