Why we're watching: Season 1 ended with Bohannon (Anson Mount) leaving Hell on Wheels after killing a possibly innocent man, with the Marshals presumably hot on his trail, and the Swede (Christopher Heyerdahl), beaten, tarred and feathered. That signals a pretty big change in the dynamics for a second season, don't you think? We're assuming Bohannon will make his way back to the railroad town at some point, but it could be a pretty different place once he gets there.
