Six months have passed.

Wilford is chasing Layton's pirate train, about a month behind them. Javi silently drives the train.

Everyone on Snowpiercer is bundled. Dr. Pelton and the teacher, Ms. Gillies, work with a resistance effort to Wilford's rule. Pelton sends a message with Winnie. She runs through the Night Car where Oz plays the piano and LJ tends the bar.

Till goes to check on Miss Audrey who is locked in a cell in the library. Sykes brings in the ration packs for the three of them and Martin Colvin.

A weather front starts moving in. Ben starts to head back to the train. He notices the ice layer is cracking under his snowshoes and then falls into a cavern, a room with furniture and computers. His signal is lost and he is knocked unconscious.

Snowpiercer Season 3 Episode 1 Quotes

Inside, it's a backwards world. Only one class now, the working class. Freezing, stitching, fixing, suffering.


Two trains. Two chapters to tell. One runs hot and fast. The other lumbers slow. Cold cast in Wilford's iron grip, an armored tortoise plodding after a hare. Everyone under a single thumb, serving a single obsession, to retake the pirates and exact his revenge.
