Hell on Wheels season 4. Elam Ferguson was a former slave who is half-black and half-white. He is clever, proud and brave, one of the main characters in Hell on Wheels seasons 1, 2, and 3. Now and since he is back in Hell on Wheels season 4, maybe it’s a good moment to remember Elam Ferguson (actor Common) best moments:
Elam Ferguson slitting the throat of Foreman Daniel Johnson to save Cullen Bohannon life, even when he was indignant towards him after learning that Bohannon was a former slave owner.
Fueled by his friend Psalms, who had accused Ferguson of behaving as a ‘white man’, he tests his freedom and defies restrictions placed against black workers by going into local brothel. Here, he will know Eva.
The fight in the Starlight Saloon between Cullen Bohannon and Elam.
When Elam and Eva are caught in loving attitude by Toole and an angry mob. Toole and his band beat Elam and drag him outside to hang him. Of course, just as Toole begin to hang Elam, Bohannon arrives on horseback and saves him. This is the beginning of their peculiar friendship.
Maybe you also like this post: Eva, the tattooed girl in Hell on Wheels, lived in Texas and died in 1903.
Elam shooting Toole in the mouth.
The moment he receives a telegram from Eva that informs him that she has given birth to a baby.
Another tender moment is when Elam Ferguson wants to start a family with Eva and her daughter, and he builds a nice cabin near the river.
However, it is tragic to see Elam drunk and desperate because Eva has given their daughter to a brother of Toole (perhaps an uncle of the baby).
Of course, when he is ‘killed’ by a bear trying to rescue Cullen Bohannon from the Mormon Fort.
How about the last episode: Hell on Wheels season 4, episode 6 ‘Bear Man’? The whole episode is a top#1 moment.
