On their wedding night, there is an uneasiness between her and Bohannon. She inquires about Bohannon's past marriage, to which he replies, "That's personal." Naomi confesses that she is worried Bohannon isn't committed to their marriage and will try to escape Fort Smith at first chance. Bohannon replies plainly, "I ain't like that," and assures Naomi that he will stay with her, The following morning, he tells Naomi over breakfast they will "figure it out." Naomi comes out of the fort later that day to bring Bohannon water while he works, Bohannon sees her, and they exchange smiles. However, as she walks towards him, Gundersen stops her, motioning for a drink, Naomi hands him the full ladle with a look of concern, Gunderson takes it, sips it,  pours the remaining water onto the ground, and watches happily as he destroys a moment between Naomi and Bohannon.
