'Hell On Wheels' recap: Revelations
Meanwhile, Lily and Doc head to Chicago. En route, Doc mopes about his impending ruin and his crappy childhood in Hell's Kitchen. This diverges from the real Doc Durant's life story, but it does give Lily the opportunity to order him to stop feeling sorry for himself and figure a way out of his problems. Thus kicked in the pants, Doc realizes he can make a bundle by connecting the rail to New York. When he goes to see Jordan Crane the next day, he gives the man an erroneous stock tip about his new project. This leaves Crane destitute and Doc five million bucks richer. While that's going on, Lily visits her late husband's family. They're all in black while Lily is in blazing red. Her in-laws make no secret of their disdain for Lily, who finally snaps and slaps the crap out of one of them when they blame her for Robert's death. In the end, she decides to return to Hell on Wheels with Doc instead of going on to England. Doc, of course, is now crushing on her pretty hard, as am I. Stay tuned for the full recap.
