After eight episodes of murder, back-stabbing, double-crossing, and dual identities, TNT's Snowpiercer steamrolls into its two-episode, two-hour season finale with everything on the line for Layton (Daveed Diggs) and Melanie (Jennifer Connelly). For the revolutionary leader, there is no middle ground: it's a win and you rebuild a more just society…. or you lose, and then you find yourself where the ex-"Mr. Wilford" finds herself in the preview below: staring down two lungs' worth of ice. But before we get to that, check out the following preview images, episode promo, and overview for "The Train Demanded Blood" and "944 Cars Long."
