We were in total shock that Lily was actually dead. We kept waiting for someone to come in to save her, but the damn Swede won again. We wont be watching anymore because Lily is one of the main reasons we watch the show. We couldn't wait for her and Bohanan to take revenge on Durant and his bossy wife. Now there really isnt a reason to come back. Oh well another good show down the tubes

Hey CAC and Cynthia,
I'm glad to know there are some reasonable people who thinks like me. Please read my earlier 2 posts to see if you agree .

David, thanks for a voice of reason. I think the actress playing Lily wanted out to pursue other offers. I guess we will find out eventually. I would have hated it if the writers just sent her back to New York or England for some lame reason. Much better to have a dramatic ending. I sure hope the actors that are left and the writers can stop paying for bodyguards soon.

You people claiming you won't watch it again because they killed off Lily need to just chill out! I can't tell you how many times I've herad people say things like "Today's tv shows are so predictable" or "There is nothing original on tv..." (myself included). We have no idea what is in store for HOW or if there will even be another season. IT IS A SHOW- a damn-entertaining one at that. Relax. If there is going to be a 3rd season, I would imagine sometime around December we will find out, though if this show is filmed in Canada as I suspect then any new episodes will have already been shot- it will be too cold and snowy for filming between November and April. Do you think they will wait until April of next year to film any new episodes? A long layoff.
As a fan of a show that got ripped out from under us way before its time (Firefly), I hope there will be more HOW and more surprises for us.

I'm hoping the killing of Lily was a dream - OR - she has a twin sister who comes looking for her - OR - the writers have lost their minds.

I cant believe they killed Lily! I was sitting there crying and then going on about it after the show ended. WTF? What were they thinking? I was fan of the show but now not even picking it up on bluray. That ending completely sucked! Good job, bone-headed writers!

Also, has anyone voiced the very real possibility that Dominique McElligott's contract was up and she didn't want to renew it? Don't be so quick to lynch the writers when you don't know any of the facts.

This show has never been about Lilly, or Durant or Elam. It's about the Railroad and how one man, Cullen, see that it's built. So for those saying the show won't continue after Lilly died. It will.
Cullen has now had to bury two women that he has loved, both victims of murder. The bigger question is what sort of man will we see now. Remember his dogged determination to find those Blue Coats? With the Swede dead, where will he channel his anger now?

Wanna love this bc I love westerns, but this season and especially the finale was an EPIC FAIL. What a weird season. So many holes; so much randomness. The heavy focus on the two least interesting characters--the Swede and the reverend--was exasperating. And a COMPLETELY different show than the first season. One episode the Swede is doing the books; the next he's dragged back on a horse with a hole in his belly? It really tried to go way deeper than it needed to and the writers don't have the chops to do it well. And kill Lilly? She was the only thing that made Cullen human, vulnerable and likable. Most viewers will tune out if there's no empathy required and we're not able to really get to know any of the characters and their motivation.
