"Two Soldiers" is the eighth episode of the fifth season of the AMC series Hell on Wheels.


The Swede remembers his time in Andersonville Prison and the horrors he faced there. In the present, the Swede arrives at the Hatch homestead and kills Aaron and Sara Hatch. Bohannon arrives and a chase through the woods ensues with the Swede after Naomi and Bohannon after the Swede. Bohannon captures the Swede and decides to take him to Camp Douglas to be prosecuted, though he is gravely wounded in the leg. Though the Swede attempts to escape just outside the camp, the Swede and an unconscious Bohannon are brought to Camp Douglas. The camp doctor saves Bohannon and his leg. While Bohannon lays unconscious after his surgery, the Swede is tried and found guilty. The Swede begs for Bohannon's forgiveness, and is hanged.
