Snowpiercer Season 2 Episode 8 Spoilers

Wilford has successfully created a huge conflict amongst the people of Snowpiercer, especially the tailies and the Third Class. Essentially, it proves that Layton has been an ineffective leader whose rule hasn’t been peaceful. Sensing the correct opportunity, Wilford tells Sykes to prepare Icy Bob. The eighth episode, titled ‘The Eternal Engineer,’ will perhaps show the extent of Wilford’s plan and how he intends to use Icy Bob.

With the breachmen gone, there is a possibility of an external attack on the train. Moreover, the train is on its way back to pick up Melanie. Will Icy Bob sabotage Melanie’s efforts? Now that Pastor Logan is incarcerated, will Layton be able to thwart Wilford’s plan? We have to wait for the next episode to provide us with the answers.

Audrey abides by Wilford and changes Kevin into a lapdog for him. She herself is drawn towards Wilford, but at the same time, there is a hint of reluctance in her. However, the true extent of Audrey’s thoughts is yet to be seen completely. We can assume that Josie is still recovering from her wounds, and her presence in Big Alice might help Layton in one way or the other. Wilford questions Alex’s desires, and on the eventual arrival of Melanie, her loyalty will be put to the test. As the series reaches its denouement, we can expect some thrilling moments that will take the narrative further.
