Snowpiercer 201 Unit 11/13/19 ph: David Bukach “A Tale of Two Trains”

Welcome back to RIGHT where we left off just a few months ago, fellow passengers (both ticketed and tailie)! With Mr. Wilford’s Big Alice engine just having taken a giant chomp out of Snowpiercer’s rear-end, Andre Layton’s fledgling government and viewers alike have been on pins and needles awaiting their first glimpse of the man behind all those big Ws. When Sean Bean portrays that man, viewers form pretty gigantic expectations. Is he the savior in Ruth’s mind or the narcissist ass of Melanie’s recollections? Or somewhere in between?

likeThrow in his quasi-paternal relationship with Alexandra (Melanie’s daughter) and Icy Bob, and you’ve got several episodes of complications to unpack before we can get control of our train back.

In this podcast, Paul, Cat, and Inez discuss:

  • The addition of Inez, a third host on loan from our podcast for The Stand
  • Theories about Icy Bob, those creepy doctors and what might be going on behind closed door in Big Alice’s clinic
  • Mr. Wilford himself and if we got all we needed from what we saw on screen this week.
  • Unpleasant ideas about the true nature of Mr. Wilfor’s relationships with Melanie, Alexandra, and maybe Miss Audrey too

That’s it for this season, passengers! What started out one track, jumped those rails and took us for an entirely different adventure than we first expected. The team here at Pod Clubhouse loves how this season turned out and can’t wait for TNT to crank out season 2!

Wait a sec. Did someone say there’s another train?

We joked about there being another cold-proof vehicle early this season, but we didn’t take that possibility too seriously. Then again, when they say Mr. Wilford provides, I guess that covers providing for a back-up train in the case of your chief engineer stealing your main train. We (Paul and Cat) can’t wait to meet a guy so smart that he saw needing a second ark-train coming!

In this podcast, Paul and Cat discuss:

  • Our lament that we didn’t get to see Sean Bean appear in the series yet. We know you’re coming, Mr. Wilford!
  • Bennet seemed to go from cheerleader and right-hand man to secretive turncoat overnight. What does he know about the “supply train” and why did he try and hide its appearance until the last second?
  • Finally, we met Melanie’s long-lost daughter. Or did we?

Even though TNT gave us quarantine-bound viewers a gift in the form of a 2-hour finale, we’re releasing the final podcasts of the season as single episodes for episodes 9 and 10. Dig into episode 9 with Paul and Cat!

Last episode may have been the revolution, but this one overflowed with suspense! There’s the whole issue of whether they’d actually kill Melanie. Then, there’s excitement surrounding her liberation, and finally her act of retribution in which she cedes control of the train to Andre. It’s a lot for one episode AND then TNT played episode 10 right after this one! What are you trying to do TNT, kill us?

In this podcast, Cat and Paul discuss:

  • The silliness of Ruth’s insistence of a formal surrender declaration. Does her propriety make her essentially ineligible for leadership in the apocalypse?
  • LJ is an orphan now. Where does that leave her?
  • Andre is going to be a father! How is he going to move forward with Zarah (and to an extent Melanie) as the women responsible for Josie’s death?

HBO: See, you save up your biggest fight – I mean the most brutal stuff you’re going to show all season – and put it in your next-to-last episode of the season.

TNT: Hold my beer.

That was intense, right? The coup uptrain beautifully distracted the jackboots from the actual revolution stirring downtrain. With Melanie’s firm hand and ruthless determination stuck behind bars, will Snowpiercer find itself better off?

In this podcast, Paul and Cat discuss that issue, as well as:

  • Although we hadn’t really seen Andre in action as a fighter, we both somehow knew that would be able to kick wholesale ass. Why would we have thought that?
  • Again, Javi confused us with where his allegiance lies. Whose side is that engineer on, anyway?
  • Melanie designed Snowpiercer. She’s the single, best source of repair and maintenance information that exists in what remains of the world. Will they try and execute her anyway?

Big, big stuff happened on the train tonight, folks. Josie, the beating heart of the tail, caretaker of the sick and ailing, Mile’s Tail Mom, and Andre’s main squeeze has been struck down at Melanie’s hand. Well, I mean the fatally paralyzing cold did most of the heavy lifting on that, but I think it’s fair to chalk up Josie’s death to Melanie. I wonder where in the Wilford Industries Hospitality handbook “torture by freezing” falls?

Last week, Melanie was our savior. This week, she shows another side of that coin. Last week, she was willing to sacrifice herself for the good of the train. This week, we learn she’s willing to sacrifice anybody for what she see’s as the good of the train. Having Andre on the loose is a threat to the order she requires of the passengers and Josie represents her fastest way to reel Andre back in. Too bad for Josie.

After getting over the shocking ending of this episode, Paul and Cat ask:

  • They weren’t alone in the sub-train last week. Couldn’t Melanie have told Bennett or someone to go tend to Andre while she saved the train?
  • What is Javi’s deal? Is he with the program or not? (The program in this case is Melanie’s plan)
  • Ruth is right on the edge. Will she break if she learns the truth about Mr. Wilford?

All aboard! But are you sure you really want to get on? I mean, this train can only run for about 7 years straight before it starts falling apart. Good thing the train’s designer also heads up the Hospitality department. As we learned in Snowpiercer Episode 106, she’s a champion multi-tasker.

For an episode featuring the series’ most cinematic action sequences so far, we also received a fair amount of world-building and minor question-answering. All in all, maybe the best episode so far. Basking in that glow, Cat and Paul use this week’s podcast to discuss questions like:

  • Was this week’s brake failure actually sabotage? And if not, then what does that mean for future episodes?
  • Now that Andre is awake and mostly functional, he told Josie about the Mr. Wilford ruse. How long until that news reaches the tail? And what happens when it does?
  • Melanie told Andre a LOT of secrets before he released her to repair the train. How much of what she said was true?

The passengers and staff of Snowpiercer were all shocked to learn that train detective Andre Layton (Daveed Diggs) had identified a suspect in the murder of Sean Wise. Although ruthless Eric the bodyguard may have performed the slicing and dicing, Andre, shortly before his unceremonious drawer-ing, believed Lila Folgers Jr. (or LJ if you’re nasty), to be the brains behind the madness. In this episode, Cat and Paul discuss what justice looks like while onboard Snowpiercer, especially when you’re in first-class.

Besides the case itself, we talk about:

  • Train justice in general and where their somewhat abbreviated code of justice may have come from. Did someone just make it up after watching a few episodes of Law and Order?
  • The Mr. Wilford cabal of people entrusted with the secret of his identity. Who’s in and who’s out?
  • The future of Tess (Brakeman Till if you’re nastier) and where characters like her may land if the train ends up in a revolution. What side is she on?
  • Jinju, the most informed and involved bartender since Guinan (Star Trek TNG, yo). What is her role and where do her loyalties truly lie?

How do you catch a killer on Snowpiercer? You hire a Train Detective, of course. What do you do when you actually find the killer? That’s when you pull out your ice axe (I looked up what ice climbers use) and take him out! Train justice for all and order prevails, right? Prepare to Brace! Rough track ahead!

Not quite justice for all. Do you think if Melanie had laid out the “vacation” in the drawers between assignments, he would have cooperated? Or solved the crime so fast? Come to think of it, do you think Melanie had his one-way trip to Drawers-land in mind the whole time?

In this podcast, Cat and Paul discuss questions like these and:

  • What is the precise nature of Melanie and Bennett’s relationship? Are these two keeping it strictly professional or are there additional benefits to working in the Engine?
  • What is LJ’s diagnosis? I don’t think it’s “normal person”. We’re thinking sociopath and discuss.
  • Are we still excited about this show now that murder has been solved? Were we looking forward to a police procedural type show set on an ark train? Or are we kind of glad that we’re getting something new?

Snowpiercer Ep 103 ph: Justina Mintz Image copyright TNT 2020.

Last episode we witnessed the night car’s various delights for up-train passengers. In this one, we saw Fight Night, an example of the depraved side of what passes for entertainment on Snowpiercer. I can’t wait to see what happens next week! Maybe a car dedicated to Cirque du Soleil, except the performers are never allowed to be out of character and always have to speak French (but no one else on the train speaks French). Plus, the performers have knives for hands. Should I have led with that?

Anyway, back to this episode. This time on Prepare to Brace!, Paul and Cat discuss:

  • For Fight Night, a man fights a woman – how close are we to that today?
  • The introduction of Terrance and the train’s drug trade. Could Andre and Terrance end up working together at some point?
  • That creepy doctor – what’s… what’s he doing with the people in the drawers?

Snowpiercer 102. Image copyright 2020 TNT.

This episode, “Prepare to Brace,” inspired the title of our humble podcast. This episode’s big event, the avalanche which blew out the cow car, has made me reconsider the wisdom of train-based arks though.

Ok, shoot me. When I heard that Mr. Wilford wanted a “significant arm” as retribution for the Tailies’ failed rebellion, my mind went straight to Strong Boy. After all, the best-fed Tailie had some pretty fearsome guns in Episode 1. Also, my poor, deluded mind didn’t think they’d hurt kids on this show. Even though the little girl’s mom Katnissed in and sacrificed her own arm, I now have to wonder if Snowpiercer is the kind of show that WILL hurt kids. I think it is.

The way Layton spat out “Night car” in the first episode, I was expecting to see some kind of brothel on wheels. That’s only partially correct. Part night club, part therapy space, part secret booty call location, the Night Car probably still holds more secrets. I bet we’re back there before we know it. Miss Audrey figures into this mystery more than she’s letting on.

In this podcast, we dive into issues like:

  • The avalanche sounds pretty cataclysmic for the train, so will conditions get worse on the train before it gets better? Can conditions ever return to where they were?
  • Layton has only been up-train for a day. Isn’t it a little soon to pull a stunt like the one at the end of the episode?
  • OK – stasis related sickness is a pretty standard trope. But will Nikki’s case drag out too long? We’re ready for her to talk!

We’ll be here every week with another podcast sorting out each episode’s new riveting revelations!
