    Looks like they finally started to lay some track.

    I give them credit for having the right tools, but the extras sure don't know how to swing a spike maul. They'd kill themselves on a real job if they lifted the maul back up every time they swung. The trick is to let the weight and the leftover momentum of the swing take the maul around and behind your back, then you merely need to add to the existing momentum to get it back up around to take the next. A real stud could knock a spike down with a single maul strike -- if they wanted to win a bet. The best I got to was three.

    It was cute when Durant struck that last spike a few times, got the spike in maybe a quarter to a half inch, realized he wasn't making much progress, then declared it done.

    Yeah, he must be some miracle man.

    I wasn't expecting the preacher to be the one to kill the Calvary dude. I guess we know now how Lilly plans to make a living.

    Yeah the preacher had been coming unglued but I didn't see that coming lol

    At first I thought the Irishman had crossed over to The Walking Dead and was a zombie. I wouldn't put it past AMC to try to save money by combining the shows ;)

    Aw, man. The Irish dude is still alive? I hate that guy.

    Why are people still afraid of the Swede? All of his henchmen have been killed and last we saw, he was getting the crap whipped out of him and crying in the middle of the street. All a couple of people have to do is jump him at night and it's Goodnight, Irene for him. It's not like Mr. Durant is all that sentimental about him.

    Why did Durant just warn Bohannon that the feds(?) were coming for him, rather than intercepting the Swede's telegram?

    Because he wants Bohannon out of the way so he can pursue Miss Bell. I'll go as far to say that the entire "Pinkertons are coming" line is a fiction that Durant used to get Bohannon out of the way.

    Those were some dumb Indians that attacked Bohannon and friends. It seemed like there were 20 of them but I only saw two of them with hand guns. The rest had arrows and clubs. They should have picked half of them them off with various ambushes before mounting a full attack.

    Maybe I'm confused but I thought the Swede wanted to find out who the guy was that Bohannon was searching for. He had the Senator use the Pinkertons to find him. I thought the whole "the Feds are coming for you" story was made up by Durant so Bohannon would take off. But when Durrant told him they were coming for him for several murders, Bohannon didn't deny it or even seem surprised. So maybe Durant was talking about the guys Bohannon killed who had killed his wife... I have no idea :)

    The feds aren't coming, he just want Mrs Bell to himself, a ruse to try and get Bohannon to go away. I kinda doubt it works. But, we'll see.

    I can't help but also think that Durant wants Bohannon to take out the Swede. Seems everyone wants Bohannon to take out the Swede, except Bohannon hasn't been very interested in that idea.

    Has anyone referred to the Swede as "Swede", "Mr. Swede" or some other variation to his face?

    That's it. The Swede dug out the info on the murders of the members of the crew who killed Bohannon's wife, and the senator found the last sergeant Bohannon was chasing in Chicago.

    Another thing, is what dirty work Durant has in mind for Elam. Maybe Durant intends that the Swede will go, as in, after hearing the conversation with the senator Durant now knows that the Swede was spying on him.

    I think the two Irish guys who are now showing porn in the tent referred to him as Mr. Swede to his face once...

    Ok so the Swede found out Bohannon was avenging his wifes death and informed the marshall's, who really are coming to arrest him for murder? And the Swede had the Senator find out the name/location of the last one? And Durant overheard the two of them talking and warned Bohannon not out of kindness but because he wants him away from Lily?

    I think I got it :)

    When the Swede first busted Bohannon for murdering Buffalo Bill, did he tell Bo his name?

    I hope this show doesn't get to the point where Durant wants Elam to kill Bohannon. That'll be too soap opera-ish.

    I think mainly he just wants Elam to replace Bohannon (or supplement him, since Bohannon did a remarkable job of saving Durant's bacon in his "real" job of foreman). When he hired Bohannon, he thought he was getting a strong-arm thug, but Bohannon hasn't exactly been cooperative in that regard. So Durant still has a job opening for strong-arm thug.
