Snowpiercer Sneak Preview: Layton Goes Hercule Poirot in First Class

In our previous preview for TNT's Snowpiercer, we were wondering if Layton's (Daveed Diggs) investigation was coming to an end or if Melanie's (Jennifer Connelly) need to keep her secret just that would derail it before the finish line. Now, the network is offering viewers a preview that shows things coming to a head as Layton goes full-on Hercule Poirot with the first-class passengers. And even though he actually makes some serious headway, not everyone's a fan of being questioned by a Taillie. Bigger problem? They want to speak to Mr. Wilford:

Snowpiercer season 1, episode 4 "Without Their Maker": A shocking twist in the murder investigation brings Layton (Daveed Diggs) and Till's (Mickey Sumner) manhunt to a cat-and-mouse climax.
