The second season starts with a band of masked robbers hijacking Durant's payroll train. As they make off with the payroll money, a guard shoots one of the bandits in the shoulder. The wounded bandit takes off his mask as he flees, and is recognized. The payroll train arrives at Hell on Wheels, and a mob of railroad workers attacks the guard after the foreman sighs, "Not again."
