In the end of the third season of Snowpiercer, we saw that some passengers wanted to stay on the train with Melanie Cavill (Jennifer Connelly), while others left with Andre Layton (Daveed Diggs) and went to New Eden. When Cavill betrayed Layton after the miracle that brought her back to life, she went back to being the person we met in Season 1.
Luckily, both Cavill and Layton decided not to make the same mistakes again. Instead of another bloody war, each passenger was given the chance to choose their own future. They could stay on the relatively safe Snowpiercer, or they could go to New Eden and face the unknown.
New Eden is the name for the area in the Horn of Africa where it might be warm enough to build a town. This picture of the future is based on the information gathered during the six-month expedition in the second and third seasons.
No one had gone there because the tracks were in such bad shape that it was too dangerous. However, after a bumpy ride over an old bridge, the passengers got off the train for the first time in over seven years. They feel the sun on their faces and see that Layton’s theory about the area was right. Maybe now everything will be okay.
Snowpiercer has been picked up for a fourth season, so maybe not. With more problems on the way, it’s time to get ready for more crises and action, but first we need to find out some of the answers to the questions we had about the end of Season 3.

Snowpiercer Season 3 Ending Explained
Melanie’s decision to betray Layton (Daveed Diggs) by telling the passengers of Snowpiercer the truth was one of the most shocking parts of the second-to-last episode of Season 3.
Melanie tells them that Layton’s idea of New Eden was based on a lie and that it was risky to go to the Horn of Africa just because he thought it was a warm place. She then takes over the train forcibly.
But in the end, it turns out that the supposed war between them was just a trick to make Mr. Wilford (Sean Bean) feel safe when he wasn’t.
“I don’t think it’s a betrayal at first, when she makes the announcement in Episode 9ine,” Connelly said of Melanie’s decision. “She is taking a very brave step, even though her back is against the wall and time is running out.
“She tried to talk to them. She tried to talk to Melanie’s daughter Alex (who was played by Rowan Blanchard) and to Layton. No one was willing to talk.
“So, I think she thought she had to do something big to get everyone’s attention and start a conversation at that point, and I think she was sincere at first.
“I think that Melanie and Layton start working together and plotting when you see Layton and Melanie talking on the phone from the engine in the middle of Episode 10. I think that’s when it starts.”
On Melanie And Mr. Wilford’s “Team Up”
Melanie teamed up with Mr. Wilford as part of their plan by convincing him to let her be Head Engineer while he stays in charge of things like the cold fusion experiments on the train.
Melanie and Mr. Wilford talked a lot about what to do with the train, and Layton seemed to be against them, so Connelly and Bean were in a lot of scenes together in the finale.
Connelly said the following about working with Bean on these scenes: “It’s fun to work with him. I think that what he does as Wilford is pretty tasty, you know.
“I like how happy and charming it is. I think he is really good and plays really well.
“It’s fun because they’re such different characters. It’s always fun to put two characters together who have such different ways of dealing with situations and getting along. We have done some fun things together.”
Is Mr. Wilford Going to Die?
The plan works because Mr. Wilford joins Melanie’s side to stop Layton. However, Melanie and Mr. Wilford have to tell the bad guy that they have been working together the whole time.
They make Mr. Wilford get into the track scaler Melanie had used to live alone for six months in the cold wasteland that is Earth. This is basically the same thing as leaving him to die.
Connelly said she didn’t know what would happen to Mr. Wilford or if he would make it through the ordeal, but she did say: “I think he seems to be a pretty tough person.
“So I think—well, I don’t know the answer myself, so I won’t give anything away—that he’s pretty strong. It is possible that he would live.”
She added, thinking about Melanie and Layton’s decision to throw Wilford out into the cold, “I think it was the right thing for her to say that they had to get rid of him one way or another.
“I liked that they worked together, that she and Layton came up with a solution, and that it was peaceful.”
What Was The Explosion?
At the end of Season 3, Melanie, played by Jennifer Connelly, is driving Snowpiercer three months later. A long way ahead of her, an explosion goes off on the track.
Someone shoots into the sky what looks like a missile, but it’s not clear who did it or why. This will probably be answered in Season 4.
