‘Hell On Wheels’ Season 4 Episode 12 ‘Thirteen Steps.’ Another great actress is killing and then, she disappears from the series. What a bad idea!
From the beginning, ‘Hell on Wheels’ TV show has been killing its best actors and actresses. At the end of season 2, they killed Lily Bell (actress Dominique McElligott). I still have doubts about this decision. Dominique McElligott is an extremely beautiful and great actress, a difficult combination, and her loss left an important void in the series. Anyway, Lily Bell’s end was heroic and absolutely lofty. In fact, the end of season 2 and the beginning of season 3 are my favorite ‘Hell on Wheels’ moments.
However, season 3 and 4 have lost two important characters played by incredible good actors. Of course, I’m speaking about Elam Ferguson (actor Common) and Ruth Cole (actress Kasha Kropinski). If Elam’s death was sad, rather pathetic, what to say about Ruth Cole’s death in episode 12 ‘Thirteen Steps’? Really disappointing!

Sweet Ruth Cole, the religious woman of Hell on Wheels, claims to be guilty to mortally shooting Sidney Snow (her son’s murderer), despite a written statement from Cullen Bohannon stating she protected an officer of the law. She is sentenced to hang.
Everything is crazy! Of course, Cullen Bohannon begs Governor Campbell to pardon her, and Campbell offers to do so, if Ruth accepts it…, but she doesn’t. How could she? She is completely upset! Since childhood, the poor woman has only supported violence and frustrated loves (including Bohannon). Sydney Snow, a horrible psychopath, has just burned alive Ezra, her son No words! Because she knows that the real culprit is Governor Campbell, who had hired Sydney. For her, death is a release!
Anyway, why don’t they kill Governor Campbell or The Swede? The characters are also played by great actors Jake Weber and Christopher Heyerdahl, but we hate them. Kill The Swede, please! Kill The Swede for once! It seems that he reappears in the finale, at least we can have some joy!
