    Maybe Wilford's in a drawer, but Melanie thought it was better to say she left him to die -- to avoid his revival.

    I would say I don't know what Melanie did to deserve all the hate from 1st class at the beginning of the ep. They jump right to saying they'll execute her for what? Lying to them? She kept the train running. First class is still very privileged.

    Yeah, we know all the bad stuff she's done. Layton and the tail knows. But nothing bad was directed at First and First was fine with those actions when they thought they came from Wilford.

    I don't think they were fine with it...I think they endured it, because they thought it was coming from Wilford (the only person on the train who they considered to be above them) rather than Melanie (who is lower-class, and thus not worthy to tell them what to do). Once they knew that it was Melanie who was ruling them, the situation became unbearable.

    The Karens in first class went ballistic because they wanted to speak with the manager, but she was unavailable while saving the train. This is a cardinal sin among Karens and thus, the death penalty is justified.

    We don't really know, though, if the rules were not already spelled out. She didn't train the brakemen or the guards or anything else. As for the drawers, the jury is still out. Do we know who came up with the idea of no capital punishment? I would surmise the drawers car(s) were in the original design of the train, so that would have been Wilford's idea (or at least approved by him); its current use to select and preserve 400 people in case of catastrophe may be Mel's idea or not.

    Or maybe I've just been giving her the "benefit of the doubt" ever since The Rocketeer.

    In the most recent episode she stated that Wilford was essentially a sales guy that wanted to live the high life with the whores for as long as he could. I would take that to mean the drawers and the 400 person ark that they are were her idea and execution. You should really look into getting the graphic novels from the library. All three versions (books, movie and TV show) are different and only similar adjacent.

    For me, it started with Dark City.

    We watched the move a month ago or so. Maybe it was because we already knew that Melanie was Wilford in the TV show when we watched it, but I seem to recall Ed Harris's character saying that he wasn't the original Wilford either, when he was trying to pass the mantle to Chris Evans. Maybe I imagined it.

    I thought new episodes come out Sunday. I'm watching on Netflix (Canada) and I guessi expected it to be steady available. Are they only going to release it at 9?

    Well that ending was nice but somewhat predictable.

    I assume you mean finale, and the answer is yes.

    Based on the fact that they showed previews for season 2 at the end, I can only assume that it's already in the can. I'm guessing they filmed both seasons simultaneously.

    Yes, and thanks for confirming. Interesting autocorrect

    I have been watching this show via Hulu the day after, so I I haven't seen any promo's saying that this was the season final. I just had noticed there were 2 episodes.

    I think it's funny how LJ was bored and wanted so badly to upset the status quo, but now she is seriously regretting that decision. Be careful what you wish for. :)

    So I'm confused. The IMDB casting spoiler I mentioned earlier was:
    that Sean Bean is in 11 episodes between seasons 1 and 2. So I was expecting to see him in the finale. Did I miss an earlier episode on which he had a flashback cameo?

    LJ didn't know how to peel an egg? Ossweiler could have *so* much fun with her.

    Interesting twist that the woman coming from the second train was Melanie's daughter. Other than that, yeah, it went as I expected. I'm in for S2

    I expected an expedition into the frozen remains of a city to look for the source of the music to be the next plot point, I didn't expect a hungry maintenance train. But the hungry maintenance train likely brings exactly the plot points I expected to find in a frozen city...
