I guess if you know some history or Googled information about Durant, you’d know he makes it to the end when the two railroads meet, but the flashforward on Hell on Wheels Season 5 Episode 11 took away any real suspense Durant would survive the ordeal during the hour.
Instead, it was his short-lived love interest, Maggie, that was shot and killed. I just wished I cared more about this sidestory.
Much like Martin’s death on Hell on Wheels Season 5 Episode 10, Maggie’s death just didn’t have an emotional impact. She was another minor character that didn’t get a ton of screen time and seemed to be more of a plot device for Durant.
It’s sadder that her character didn’t get the time to really be developed, though
