News for nancy northcut. I can get Hell on Wheels in North Ga and have 20 episodes recorded from both 1st and 2nd years. Think the show is GREAT! Didn't like the demise of Lily either.

This show shouldn't be on tv. The writers are a bunch of narcissists. The killing of Lily was beyond explanation and the manner in which she was killed is beyond comprehension. Its bad enough we have to see such horror on tv, but now we're presented with it in our tvshows. For those of you that like to watch a character of this type get killed off you should question your state of mind.
Great news you say, that this show is back. Is killing a beautiful character like this really good viewing?

Glad that we have a third season coming... TV has really sucked this summer so far and looking at some of my favorites in their last season (Breaking Bad & Dexter) I am glad this one will continue at least one more season.

I am so please to see this show has been renewed.. It is just awesome...It is so refreshing from watching 'Rality Shows'. When I saw Cullen charter show up on "Red Widow", i figured it was cancelled; but w/his death in the 1st episode....saw renewed light for the show.

I'm so glad this show has been renewed. It's one of the best I've seen. I can't figure out why Lilly had to be killed, she was a strong female character and lovely to watch. I love Anson Mount, (Cullen), such a tortured soul. And Common, (Elam), is good at heart and has so much to overcome. Please, if ever it is to be cancelled give us a conclusion. Thank you.

Yes...it is good news! Lily shouldn't have killed off...her and Cullen just started up the romance...definitely too soon. Now its up to Cullen to finish the Western passage.
