‘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!

Hell on Wheels season 4. Ruth Cole

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!

Maybe you also like this post: Hell on Wheels season 4. Is Cullen Bohannon inspired by real John Casement?

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!

Spoiler alert:

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!

    I would love to know how much artists pay to have comments like these posted on these forums. While would agree that the way they disposed of the character of Elam may be have left something to be desired, take exception with the “great” actor designation of “Common”.

    Whomever cqan honestly think this guy can even be a lousy actor? If you call great acting, bringing street thuggish, speech and attitude to an 1800’s setttings, then even your knowledge of historical periods ought to be brought under scrutiny. Instead of Common he should have named himself “Rare” because that’s about what his acting ability should be called.

    He’d be better served going back to his roots as a “Rapper” and in that light, I’m glad his character is gone from the series. Doubt that Rap was popular during the era of expansion of the railroads in America.

    Ruth is not guilty of murder in the first place. The director or whomever went with bad legal advice writing this show in my opinion.

    Common has proven to be a much better actor on this show than he used to be.

Lord's Pavilion

As the cricket season draws to a close, Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) can report a surge in popularity for guests seeking a full day of luxury hospitality at Lord’s during a Test Match in 2016. In the Home of Cricket’s most iconic venues – the Captains’ Lounge and Marylebone Suite – hospitality packages which included a hearty breakfast, sumptuous four-course lunch and luxury afternoon tea, sold out quickly for the first three days of the England v Sri Lanka and England v Pakistan Investec Test Matches. Private Boxes with the best views of the action for up to 18 guests also sold out fast for the same days. MCC revealed a sharp increase in revenue for its 2016 Sri Lanka Test Match hospitality packages compared with 2014 when the team last played England at Lord’s. Revenues for hospitality were up by nearly 30% over the same period in 2014 whilst private box sale revenues were up by a healthy 60%. Nick Kenton, MCC Head of Sales, Meetings & Events and Hospitality, said: “2016 has been a fantastic year for enjoying a day of cricket whilst experiencing the very best food, drink and hospitality that Lord’s has to offer. “This year’s sales figures show that hospitality packages at Lord’s were in huge demand and continue to be a key part of the summer sporting calendar.” Lord’s also expects high demand for its new hospitality packages, to be released this autumn for 2017 matches. These include England v South Africa from 6th to 10th July and England v West Indies from 7th to 11th September. Packages for the England v Ireland Royal London One-Day International on 7th May 2017 are also expected to sell out in record time. Details of all hospitality options at Lord’s can be found on its website
