‘Keep Hope Alive’ – Snowpiercer Season 2 Episode 5 Review
‘Keep Hope Alive’ showed Layton and her group of confidants how important Melanie continues to be on the train. Layton is forced to make a tough decision and, of course, Wilford decides to screw it up.
Apparently, things are not going well for MÃ©lanie. We haven’t seen her since she got off the train to go to the research center in episode 3. She didn’t send a signal to Snowpiercer that she was able to connect to the last weather balloon. that the train recently launched. Ben is clearly worried about her. The preview for next week’s episode shared the writers will focus only on Melanie. So, I can’t wait to hear what happened to him.
I liked the way Layton and the others decided to deal with Melanie in radio silence. The train is about to turn back to retrieve it. However, until the train reaches the research station, no one other than Layton and her group can know that Melanie might be in trouble (possibly dead). This moment made Layton and his team realize how difficult it was for Melanie to keep control of Snowpiercer while pretending Wilford was still on board. She held the comedy for seven years. She gave the passengers something to hold onto. Now it’s time for Layton to do the same.
The delivery of the message fell on Ruth and I think she took the responsibility well. As a front desk manager, she doesn’t like lying to Snowpiercer passengers. But Ruth was smart enough to understand that there was no other option. Even a whisper from Melanie losing contact with the train was enough for Wilford to gain a lot of support.
I think Zara can be held responsible for urging two characters to make certain decisions this week. She encouraged Ruth to lie that Melanie is doing well and working hard to secure a future for humanity. Zara also spoke to Layton about Terence’s handling.
Seeing Layton telling Pike to kill Terence was unexpected. However, it made sense. The main story in Snowdrops This is how the absence of responsibility leads to the corruption of those responsible. Melanie made Layton kill a group of people to keep the rest of the train safe during the first season. And in “Keep Hope Alive,” Layton decided to remove Terence from the board to prevent the train from falling under Wilford’s control. The way Layton made Pike the one to kill Terence was a very Wilford move. Layton is slowly becoming the kind of person he hates. I wonder how far the writers will take it.
Also, I hope Layton talks to Pike after making him do such a thing. Terence’s murder clearly had an impact on Pike’s emotional state.
Terence gone, I wonder who will take control of the Sanitation Service? Maybe LJ and Oz can do it together? It’s not like they have anything else to do. I don’t know if even writers know what to do with them.
I liked that Oz reconnect with Bess, however. I want to see more.
As for Bess, I’m a little confused as to what to do with her interaction with Pastor Logan. Yes, Bess needs to stop feeling guilty about a lot of things. She must refocus and find a strategy to find Wilford’s spies scattered around the train. Although I think Bess trusts Pastor Logan, I have my doubts. His talk about some people thinking Layton might be a false leader made me think he might be waiting for Wilford to return to Snowpiercer.
âKeep Hope Aliveâ also focused a lot on Wilford and Audrey’s odd relationship. Alex is not happy that Wilford is getting close to Audrey. I’m on the same boat as Alex. Wilford keeps saying he needs Audrey to defeat Snowpiercer. And like Alex, I have no idea what he means by that.
I love Audrey who still works for Layton and tries to find a way to spy on Wilford. But, from what I can tell, Wilford may be too smart for her. She has to be careful. Audrey wants to break it and I’m not sure if that’s something she can do. The scene where she unsuccessfully tried to reconfigure a comm box before Wilford returned with drinks was pretty intense. He knows she’s up to something. I just hope she will be able to protect herself from his anger.
Coming to Josie, I was pretty impressed with her in this week’s episode. Even though she is going through a painful recovery process, she still finds the strength to send messages to Layton about what Wilford is planning.
I know Layton’s understanding of Josie’s message about Wilford planning to do something with the Breachmen was wrong, but Josie does her best to keep him informed. Speaking of the Breachmen, Wilford’s decision to kill them was unexpected. They were very devoted to him. While I’m not sure what its endgame is, the blood-soaked scene let us know there were still plenty of people ready to act on Wilford’s orders. At this point, I have no idea who Wilford’s spies are. The episode made sure to keep their faces hidden as they engaged in a wave of killings.
Another thing that surprised me was that Josie formed a relationship with Icy Bob. I didn’t expect Icy Bob to have humanity in him. I thought he was just a tool for Wilford to use. But no. Icy Bob can always care about others. I know I mentioned how Bess should be the one to shoot him down, but after his scenes with Josie, I’d also like to know more about why Icy Bob decided to allow the Headwoods to experiment on him. .
There is a fan theory of how Wilford will send Icy Bob to kill Melanie at the research station. However, after connecting with Josie, maybe he will change his mind?
With everything that happened in ‘Keep Hope Alive’, I can’t wait to see what will happen next. But, first, I’m prepared to take the timeline of the show back a few weeks to find out how Melanie fared on her way to the research station and why she couldn’t get in touch. with the train during the current episode.
