  • GIDDY UP!

    Hell on Wheels' Season 2 Premiere: The Recline of Western Civilization

    "Viva La Mexico" was most successful when it stopped acknowledging the past and focused its attention on using the established change in character dynamics to look ahead.

  • Episode Summary

    Cullen must deal with his transgressions and Elam isn't happy about his decision. With Lily now a major force in the design of the railroad, she and Durant push the railroad west.

    • Bad episode

      4.0
      It looks to me like they ruined a pretty decent show. Basically this episode was about nothing. It looks like between the last episode of the first season and this one there has been quite a time gap but unfortunately viewers have no awareness about it. Many things changed and unfinished buisness somehow vanished into thin air. If the main protagonist is about to die in the end of the first episode of the new season for sure this is not going to happen and this so far the worst opener that could have ever been invented. It's a pity that the show is probably not going to be renewed for the next season but of course I might be wrong.moreless

      @ 8:21 the doc appears to be using very modern looking stainless steel tweesers to pull buck shot out of CB's shoulder...
