Snowpiercer Season 2 Finale Preview: Layton at His Lowest Point

After a brutal, season-long game of physical and mental chess, Layton (Daveed Diggs) and Melanie (Jennifer Connelly) may have lost Snowpiercer to Wilford (Sean Bean)- mind, body, and soul. It would sure seem that way heading into tonight's two-hour, two-episode season finale of TNT's Snowpiercer. With everything seemingly in place, Wilford looks to make his final move as Layton reaches a desperate low- but will Melanie's discovery change everything? And just when things look the darkest, Layton might just have a plan- as "The Show Must Go On" and "Into the White" pull up to the station Monday night.

But in the following exclusive preview, things aren't looking too hopeful as Layton hits a new low just when Josie (Katie McGuinness) and the others need him the most (two versions to view below as well as here). Following that, a look back at the previews released by TNT over the weekend:

With the series now only hours away from its second-season finale, the cast and crew of Snowpiercer show what it took to bring this season together as well as some insight into where the train (and the series) might be heading next:

At the end of season one, the survivors of the revolution are trying to pick up the pieces and maintain a fragile peace amongst the now merged classes with Layton (Diggs) emerging as the train's leader. Discovering Mr. Wilford (Bean) is alive and headed their way on a rival train, Melanie (Connelly) risks going outside to prevent him from invading Snowpiercer. While she's out there, it's revealed that Alexandra (Blanchard), Melanie's daughter, who she thought had died, is alive and has become Wilford's dedicated protegee. In season two, an entirely new power struggle emerges, causing a dangerous rift as people are divided between their loyalty to Layton and to Mr. Wilford, who has a new train, new technology and a game plan that keeps everyone guessing. While Layton battles Wilford for the soul of Snowpiercer, Melanie leads the charge on a shocking new discovery that could change the fate of humanity.
