Hell on Wheels season 4 is about to begin. In fact yesterday, on Saturday August 2 2014, in anticipation of its 13-episode season, Zap2it had an exclusive feature highlighting actor Anson Mount (Cullen Bohannon). He analyzed the genre of the Western and his feelings about it: “You have to both embrace a genre and be very careful of it at the same time.”
Fantastic! We have also seen teasers and photos of the cast. Everything is perfect! But what does it happen with Elam Ferguson (actor Common) in Hell on Wheels season 4?
We know Common name doesn’t appear in the credits and there isn’t mention of his future role in Hell on Wheels season 4 on twitter. But I’ve got a feeling that we’ll see Elam Ferguson to reappear somewhere during the next episodes.
The only clue (or hope) might be a tweet of Common:
Don’t forget to watch the Season 4 premiere of AMC’s @HellOnWheelsAMC tonight, 9/8c.

Hell on Wheels season 3 finale was really shocking. Elam Ferguson was potentially killed trying to save Cullen Bohannon.
What is going to happen with Elam? Remember that he is Cullen Bohannon alter-ego, remember that their friendship is a major dramatic point in the TV show because both friends represent the spirit of the First Transcontinental Railroad across the United States. The former owner of a slave plantation (Bohannon), and the former slave (Ferguson) building a new future and trying to forget the Civil War. And remember that Hell on Wheels is a TV show of well-studied film characters.
In my opinion, to forget Elam Ferguson in the woods while going to save his friend (married and trapped in the Mormon fort) is an error. It would be a disappointing end to this beloved character.
For months, we have lived his pride, bravery, his love for Eva, the loss of his daughter… I hope to see him back!
And you? How about you? Tell us your opinion.
Enjoy your day, Yareah friends. Art is everywhere and up to you!
