Hell on Wheels season 5. On Saturday July 18, we’ll meet Cullen Bohannon (Anson Mount) again. Now, he has moved to the West looking for his wife Naomi and child. Apparently, Naomi’s family is hidden her because Bohannon is a bad husband, irresponsible, violent and vindictive. Not to speak of his fondness for drink and other vices, and his friendship with prostitutes, gamblers and thugs. Definitely, Bohannon is a bad husband! Nobody would like a son-in-law like him, not a Mormon family whose son was hanged by him.
However, we love Bohannon because he is wild, free and a dreamer. He wants to reach the Pacific Ocean in spite of all the difficulties that Indians, businessmen and Mother Nature are putting in his path. We don’t love Bohannon because he is patient, friendly or sweet (qualities of a good father) but because he is an old hero of fiction and we are speaking about an epic TV show.
Then, I prefer Bohannon as a single man. Better if he never finds his family, better if they find a perfect husband and father while the railroad continues its tragic way. Hell on Wheels cannot stop now.
Bohannon is the future, families are present and they represent security. A TV show is not reality but a beautiful dream!
How about you? Do you prefer Bohannon married or single? Tell us your opinion now!
“Two now, weather and Indians permittin’. Rust eaters lay the rails. Walking boss makes sure the gauge is right. Spiker teams secure the rails to the ground. Fish-plates tie them together. Three swings of the hammer per spike, 10 spikes per rail, 400 rails to a mile, 1,500 miles to Sacramento.”
Enjoy your day, Yareah friends. Art is everywhere and up to you!
