Hi. I don't know if you saw Season 2 of Hell on Wheels but Ruth was never in love with Sean. Ruth and Joseph Black Moon were in a relationship and were in love. Not Sean. Sean stalked Ruth throughout Season 2, not taking her rejection of him - no - for an answer. In fact, he became creepy dangerous, sneaking up on her at night. Just to get it straight, Joseph Black Moon was Ruth's love interest. Sean McGinnes is nothing but a sick stalker obsessed with making Ruth his.
