Season 3Edit

Main article: Season 3

When Cullen Bohannon eats dinner at her family's home, Naomi spends most of the meal staring at him. Later in the barn, she has a liaison with Bohannon, though this is cut short when they hear noise outside. ("Eminent Domain")

Naomi and her family move to Fort Smith after their encounter with the railroad. When Bohannon is brought to trial for hanging Jeb, Naomi reveals that she is pregnant with Bohannon's child. Though her father was incredibly angry at this turn of events, she never says that she was forced. She accepts his offer of marriage, citing it as God's plan.

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.
