    I was half expecting to see the welcoming party to be greeted with a hail of bullets when the door opened. But I guess Ruth is too central to the story. Oh, well.

    Any guesses why we are seeing Mel Jr instead of Wilford? Like mother like daughter?

    Actually, the only new scene there was the one with that one guy. Everything else was just shots from the first season.

    They were about 8-9 days from completing shooting for S2 when they had to shut down.

    He was shown for all of 2 seconds in a teaser for next season. So I would assume that he will be in all 10 episodes of season 2. This is a good thing because if they had introduced him any earlier in the season then they would have had to kill him off before the end of season one. Sometimes I think he has that written into his contract somewhere.

    Ah, that explains it. I didn't watch the trailer.

    Why did Latham leave the tailies? Couldn’t he just moved them up a car with him?

    They were chained into place.

    I know, but didn’t Melanie give him the key that opens “everything”

    It probably opens every electronic door but not mechanical padlocks.

    What else was in that car other than the prisoners? Could it have been possible to release the next coupling of the next car back? In any case, the whole lets uncouple cars thing made no sense to me. It would never work like that in real life. The second the train comes apart it would have been placed in emergency and the breaks would have been applied stopping the train. It wouldn't continue to coast like it did. One can only assume that Snowpiercer does not have air breaks I guess.

    Tell me about it, she went totally loony in the final episode.

    Except this train couldn't have been designed that way, because if it slows down too much it dies.

    I got the feeling that this kind of decoupling-recoupling move was planned for. Maybe not for this specific reason, but they had the side track and switches controlled from the train for a reason.

    And I suppose the math of when to make their various moves would have been thrown off if they'd changed the number of cars that were being separated...

    Nah. There were a million and one ways to McGyver the chains, re-run the formulas or even justejust There is only one reason why those people had to die.

    Well, sure, but that's true of everything that's ever happened in any story, ever. The question is, does it makes sense within the context of the story? And while they didn't explain it, it's not hard to figure out ways in which this makes sense.

    That 994 car train stopped really fast.
    Melanie should have been left behind over 10 miles when Snowpiercer finally came to a halt. (...but then, not much in the show is believable, though the story did get better as it progressed)

    Not gonna lie. I'm still not over Charlie (Lost). Not that was killed off, but how incredibly stupid they made it, breaking the laws of Physics add common sense.
