Whatever way things end up for Layton (Daveed Diggs), Melanie (Jennifer Connelly), and Mr. Wilford (Sean Bean) when the dust settles on the second season of TNT's Snowpiercer, there are at least one face viewers can be sure they'll be seeing again. On Thursday, Deadline Hollywood reported that recurring cast member Chelsea Harris has been promoted to series regular starting with the third season- with Harris set to appear in eight episodes of the current second season. Serving as a covert operative and the right-hand advisor to Mr. Wilford, Sykes is reserved and coolly efficient. She is well-versed in the dark arts of intelligence and, while she seems loyal, one begins to wonder whether she can be trusted at all.
Here's a look back at what the second season of TNT's Snowpiercer has to offer:
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.
