Re: Hell on Wheels Season 2 *SPOILERS*
So, over the course of two seasons we watch Lily and Cullen get put through hell, and then, when they finally have 5 minutes of not wanting to kill themselves, we have the most asinine character in recent TV history strangle her because...what? It's edgy, dark and gritty?
I have no interest in this show anymore. They have no clue what they're doing, other than to make characters retarded in order to put their Gary Stu Herald of Chaos villain in a position to murder the heroine and make sure the hero stays dark and brooding.
Try watching Deadwood sometime, writers of Hell on Wheels, to see how to tell a dark, gritty period story with emotional impact without random stupidity and shock-killing main characters that manage to have a nice day for once after two seasons of oppressive, depressive abuse.
Killing off Mr. Toole was also lame. He's a decent minor character, so I guess just have him commit suicide, cause you didn't like that you'd written yourself into a corner with the interracial relationship sidestory? Yeah, you totally earned that. Wait no you didn't.
Shameful waste of a show's potential.
Beware the beast man for he is the Devils pawn. Alone among Gods primates, he kills for sport or lust or greed. Let him not breed in great numbers for he will make a desert of his home & yours. Shun him, for he is the harbinger of death.
