Recap of Snowpiercer Season 3 Episode 3

‘The First Blow,’ the third episode of ‘Snowpiercer’ season 3, begins with the pirate train’s attempts to reconnect with the Snowpiercer. While Ben, Layton, and Alex supervise the engine’s reconnection, Josie learns that Wilford plans to destroy them with a cannon. To avert destruction, they drive their train through the Snowpiercer, derailing part of the cars. Wilford also brings Zarah to the Big Alice engine to protect them from Layton’s onslaught. Ben disconnects the wrecked cars in order to salvage the pirate train, but in the process, he loses track of the Snowpiercer’s whereabouts.

Kevin approaches LJ and Oz and asks them to open the night car so he may question a few Tailies. He begins the interrogation in search of any information about Layton and ends up killing Strong Boy. Pike meets Ruth at the prison, and she directs him to send a signal to Layton in order to retrace the Snowpiercer’s path. Pike follows Ruth’s directions and walks to the hospitality section, where he begins a magnificent firework display. Layton and others notice the fireworks and track down the Snowpiercer.

They plan how to meet Wilford on a ridge, but they realize they can’t link the two trains end-to-end. Following a chat with Josie, Layton learns that they must deceive Wilford in order to complete the link. He decides to use Miss Audrey as a distraction for Wilford and drags her to the engine. The pirate train confronts Wilford and the Snowpiercer at a ridge, and Layton begs him to surrender, only to be dismissed by the engineer.

How Does the Pirate Train Reconnect With the Snowpiercer at the End of Snowpiercer Season 3 Episode 3?

Layton resolves to complete the connecting by fooling Wilford after recognizing that an end-to-end reconnection is unattainable and that Wilford will not welcome them with open arms. Layton succeeds in distracting Wilford by bringing Miss Audrey to the engine. Miss Audrey’s presence entices Wilford to approve the reconnection, and he orders Javi to meet the pirate train at the connection spot. He also orders his soldiers to greet the crew of the pirate train at the connection point, possibly killing or capturing everyone save Miss Audrey.

Miss Audrey’s preoccupation, on the other hand, allows Layton to enter the Snowpiercer without Wilford’s awareness. Layton enters the Snowpiercer and attacks Wilford with the help of Ben, who requests Javi in Spanish to give Layton passage. He demands that the soldiers leave so that the engineer is not killed. Wilford, faced with no other option, withdraws the soldiers, allowing the pirate train crew to board the Snowpiercer. Layton supervises the successful reconnecting of the trains, imprisons Wilford, and seizes leadership of the Snowpiercer. LJ strikes Kevin and pledges her allegiance to the resistance to appease the new leader.

What does Layton expect from Asha? Why is Asha lying about New Eden?

Layton realizes that he should take the train to the Southern Arabian Peninsula in Africa, the only remaining warm area for them to investigate, after taking command of the Snowpiercer. The path to the Peninsula, on the other hand, is incredibly difficult and dangerous. He learns from Ruth that the passengers on the train are exhausted from the countless rebellions and conflicts, and they will not consent to engage on a perilous assignment. Because Layton is not a tyrant like Wilford, he decides to hold a referendum for the passengers to decide whether to proceed to the Arabian warm location despite the risks that await them.

Even though Layton does not want to impose his decision on the passengers, he is aware that the Arabian warm spot is his only option for saving humanity. He borrows a page from Melanie’s book and asks Asha to lie about being from the Arabian warm location known as New Eden in order to persuade the passengers. Before the vote, Asha speaks with the passengers and informs them that she is from New Eden, a place where there is green grass, trees, and life.

Layton believes in democracy, but he also recognizes that the majority’s perspective may not be the greatest for the larger good. As a result, with the help of Asha’s lie, he stands up as a leader to take humanity’s last survivors to a potentially livable region on the planet.

What Is the Referendum’s Outcome? Is the Snowpiercer on its way to New Eden?

Snowpiercer is indeed headed to New Eden. When Asha lies about the existence of life in the Arabian warm zone, the passengers of the Snowpiercer regain hope and decide to side with Layton. The new leader’s efforts to persuade the passengers to join the trip succeed thanks to Asha’s assistance. The passengers vote in favor of the trip, and Layton obtains the majority’s approval to proceed with his preparations. Despite having to deceive, Layton is able to carry out his goals through a democratic procedure.
