Snowpiercer Season 2 Episode 9: What to Expect?

Episode 8 of the second season of ‘Snowpiercer’ sees a massive change in the control over Snowpiercer. An act of cunning sabotage, festered with careful planning, changes the social landscape of the train. Almost all the characters are trying to choose sides as it has again come to survival.

It is always easy to blame the disenfranchised, a fact that is put to effective use by Wilford. He has the resources to breach the train from outside, thereby creating a problem whose solution is exclusively in his hand. The tides have shifted massively as people aboard Snowpiercer welcome the authority of Wilford. The beginning of the end dawns upon us, and we couldn’t wait for the ninth episode.
