Yes, it was pretty good. I like the way things are shaping up.

Re: Hell on Wheels Season 2 *SPOILERS*

I liked them actually getting more into the politics and logistics of making the Railroad since Cullen is now the boss. I think it was deliberate that they dropped the "Revenge for Dead Wife" thing on his character.

The show is about reconstruction and ambition. For most of the characters, it's about the ambition of rising above your station and gaining power. For Cullen, it's about him rebuilding his life into something again and finding new purpose instead of holding onto the past. His wife and son are dead, and his revenge only caused him more problems. By realizing they ARE dead and revenge won't do anything to change that, and by taking over the Railroad he's rebuilt himself and found a new life for himself.

Re: Hell on Wheels Season 2 *SPOILERS*

Yep, saw it last night and it was a great start. Was sad to see the new railroad police guy get red-shirted. It was clear that he was put in there to set up a small bit of temporary conflict for Common's character until the polygamists clipped him. He was kind of annoying with all his yapping, but he seemed to have a kind heart and never treated Common with disrespect. His final scene with the baby was quite touching. Very interesting that Colm Meany is still a player, even from jail. Hoping this show will last at least a couple more seasons, although I am really missing Anson Mount's Brit girlfriend. She was a breath of fresh air in a real shitty environment.

^Colm Meaney's character, Mr. Durant, is no longer in prison. He is free as a bird and actively trying to destroy Bohannan's efforts.

Re: Hell on Wheels Season 2 *SPOILERS*

Yes, I know, I saw it too. But my point was that he was also setting up his future with his Congressional buddy while he was still in prison - and that was a very nice looking jail cell. As soon as he got out he was off to the races, but didn't expect Bohannon to get the job so easily after he was already setting up his own position with the railroad.
