It all came down to this. On Saturday (July 23), AMC aired the series finale to their western juggernaut “Hell on Wheels.” It’s been a long road for Cullen Bohannon (Anson Mount) and the Central Pacific Railroad, and while it looked like loose ends were being tied up, a few new issues were thrown into the mix.
A photo op showing the hammering of the Golden Spike is exactly where Thomas Durant (Colm Meaney) needed to be to continue showcasing that false stature of success. But it was not long before the rug was pulled out from under him. A subpoena by President Grant himself had Durant and Bohannon tasked with a trip to Washington. It looked like Mr. Durant was finally being brought to justice for all his dastardly deeds.
