"Struck" is the fourth episode of the fifth season of the AMC series Hell on Wheels.


Chang succeeds in organizing a strike among the Chinese workers, as the men who attempted to hang him are taken by wagon out of town. Bohannon is able to negotiate for some but not all of the Chinese demands. In Laramie, Wyoming, Durant notes the Central Pacific's progress has increased with Bohannon's help. Durant asks Mickey to find him a new foreman to keep the Irish workers in line. Mickey chooses his cousin, Johnny after he makes too much trouble in his saloon. Louise Ellison discovers that a CP man has been communicating with Durant. Stagecoach Mary discovers the bodies of the men attacked Chang. They have been murdered by one of Chang's men.
