Main article: Season 1

When the woman visits Hell on Wheels, she attends a church meeting lead by Ruth and translated by Joseph Black Moon. As Lily passes the church tent, she recognizes the hat that the woman is wearing as Robert's. Lily attacks the woman and is pulled away by Bohannon. Joseph later brings the woman to meet a calmer Lily and explains how she got the hat and that she, too, is a widow. The woman returns the hat, though Lily returns the feather that the woman had attached to the hatband. ("Pride, Pomp and Circumstance")
