In Hell on Wheels” Season 4 Episode 4 “Reckoning” (air date: Aug. 23, 2014), Cullen has found a new route that they may use for the railroad while Mickey lost his saloon. Read on for the full recap.

Cullen is alive, but he is gravely injured after he got beaten up by Campbell’s men. He was able to go home and Naomi helped him with his injuries. Cullen then he went to Durant to get the stuff for his surveying journey to Sherman’s Peak.

He stumbled upon another challenge again when a set of Indians saw him and was ready to attack him, luckily, he was able to dodge them and get out of their sight and to make things even luckier for him, he discovered a new railroad route.

Campbell accompanied his gang to go to Mickey’s saloon on order to claim the place. This angered Mickey and this made him fight back, but of course, Campbell and his men will not go down without a fight that they struck Eva. Mickey got angrier over it and  tried to attack one of his men, but he was caught and he was imprisoned. Durant tried to negotiate with Campbell to release Mickey, but it did not work. Eventually, Campbell freed Mickey, but he had to give up his saloon. He signed over the bar, but he did not accept the job offer.

With Mickey’s saloon now Campbell’s, this left Eva jobless so she tried to get a job by offering herself to Durant. Surprisingly, Durant did not take her up on it and offered to help her.

In other news, the Swede still insists that he is the real Bishop Dutson despite Cullen’s exposure of his true identity. Aaron Hatch even sent over a Mormon bishop to testify against him. To everyone’s surprise, the man contradicts the Swede’s identity during the interrogation. However, the Swede did not appear to be rattled by this and he wishes to summon the only Mormon he trusts – Brigham Young to testify.
