Recap of Snowpiercer Season 3 Episode 5

‘A New Life,’ the fifth episode of ‘Snowpiercer’ season 3, follows Zarah as she writes a letter to her unborn daughter about the Snowpiercer. Alex begins to care for Wilford, who has yet to heal from his near-fatal bullet wound. The Snowpiercer’s passengers create a name tree for Layton and Zarah’s kid. Zarah’s water breaks and she goes into labor in the night car while she and Layton spend time by the tree. Mrs. Headwood informs Josie that she has lost her ability to feel pain as a result of the negative effects of her cold-resistant treatment.

Dr. Pelton is summoned by Layton to look after Zarah because he does not trust Mrs. Headwood. Pike approaches Ruth and inquires about taking a position against Layton. After assuring her trust in the existing leader, the chief of hospitality removes him. The name tree catches fire as Ruth and the other passengers celebrate the arrival of a newborn. Bess begins the investigation, and Layton assists her. They believe Lilah Jr. is the one who set the fire. Oz and Lilah Jr. dismiss their fears. As their inquiry proceeds, Bess and Layton discover that a substantial amount of ethanol is missing, indicating the possibility of fires.

Ben asks Sykes to assist Javi in dealing with his trauma. She joins forces with Javi to provide assistance. Ben comes into Josie at the engine car and offers to teach her how to drive the train. As they spend time together, Josie reveals that she is no longer able to feel pain. She also inquires as to whether Ben is missing Melanie. They also exchange intimacy on the spur of the moment. A second fire breaks out in the Snowpiercer, followed by an explosion that almost kills Layton. Javi notes that there are no explosive materials in the storage. Layton flees the explosion and rushes to Zarah, who is in the midst of a difficult labor.

Ending of Snowpiercer Season 3 Episode 5: Does Zarah Give Birth?

Zarah does, in fact, give birth to a healthy baby girl. Zarah suffers greatly after giving birth due to the negative effects of the baby’s cold-resistant medication. Zarah’s temperature begins to fall steadily as the host. Dr. Pelton and Mrs. Headwood use warming blankets to try to keep Zarah’s temperature stable. The explosion in the train exacerbates the problem, as Layton is forced to remain apart from his child’s mother. Regardless of Zarah’s lowering fever, Dr. Pelton instructs her to push in order to deliver the baby. Zarah gives birth to Liana after much difficulty.

Even though the infant is fine, Layton should be concerned about the cold-resistant treatment she is receiving. Given the negative effects Josie has as a result of the treatment, it’s not surprising if Liana begins to experience the same. As Layton fears, the genetic modification performed on the infant may change Liana’s fate for the better or for the worse. As the Snowpiercer approaches New Eden, Liana’s father and mother are likely to be concerned about their child’s survival outside the train.

Is Pike to blame for the fire and explosion? Why?

Pike appears to be displeased with Layton’s leadership and decision-making process after his friend’s re-emergence as the Snowpiercer’s leader. His advice to Ruth to take over the Snowpiercer from Layton show that the former Tailie does not want his “former friend” to change the fate of the train and its passengers. His concerns about New Eden also indicate that he does not believe the falsehood concocted by Layton and Asha. Pike hides in the railway car that explodes upon Layton’s arrival at the end of the episode, implying his involvement in the explosion and fire.

Pike also smashes a remote controller, which may have belonged to the explosive he set for the explosion. The fire and explosion could be Pike’s way of scaring Layton, if not his attempt to assassinate the leader. Layton’s ambitions to become the Snowpiercer’s next ruler, as misinterpreted by Pike, could be the motivation for Pike’s actions. Pike may be aiming for an authoritarian position by forcing his love interest Ruth to become the next train captain, which could lead him to kill or hurt Layton. Since Layton and Bess escaped the explosion, they may discover that Pike is the true perpetrator of the two incidents.
