"Cholera" is the seventh episode of the third season of the AMC series Hell on Wheels.


When Cullen Bohannon finds the water in the camp has been contaminated, causing cholera, he sets out in search for fresh water for many of his workers, himself included. He gets no help from Thomas Durant, who has difficulties of his own when Senator Nathan Metcalf threatens to remove him from Crédit Mobilier. Eva makes a decision about her child's future. Thor Gundersen poses as Bishop Joseph Dutson, telling about the loss of his family to his Fort Smith escort. Ezra Dutson saves both Cullen and the town by leading him to water.
