Hell on Wheels: Thirteen Steps (Recap and Review)

After last week’s blood soaked episode, Bleeding Kansas, Thirteen Steps which are the amount of steps that Ruth Cole will walk to the gallows in this episode of Hell on Wheels is quite bloodless. In a word this week’s tale of the railroad’s relentless trek across the prairies and deserts of the American West is grim with a huge dose of somber. Ruth pleads guilty and even acting governor Campbell attempts to get the woman preacher pardoned for her crime of murder using Bohannon’s testimony that she acted to save his life when she shot Sheriff Snow.
