S5 E12 Huntington (spoilers)


Was there something going on or implied between Huntington and Chang? Or an infatuation from Huntington of Chang? Was it just an admiration of him because he wanted to be like him or more than that?

Cullen said something to the effect of him liking his food and clothes etc. and then at the end when he asked if Cullen killed him he looked really broken about it and red in the eyes like he wanted to cry.

I haven't seen past this episode yet just fyi.

Nothing more than seeking out another business partner to fatten his wallet. The look on his face was more of a "Bohannon is not a man to be trifled with", look. He killed about 6 men that day.

I dunno that wasn't the vibe I got. I mean a railroad tycoon looking up to a chinese middle man "businessman" who sold drugs and prostitutes? Hmm. Seemed more like there was something else to it they were hinting at. Not that it really matters. But I wondered if I missed some other cues earlier on.

He mentioned to Bohannan that he wanted to stay on Chang's good side to have a connection in China to be able to get in on trade with them. He told Bohannan that it would be helpful to stay on his good side for both of them. He figured the two of them would partner up in China like they did on the Central Pacific.

Nahhh never got that vibe. He all about that money and had just made an agreement with him.

I would of liked to see more dialogue before he got shot. Enough for him to know he was *beep* with the wrong dude before he got killed.
