Snowpiercer (2020) s03e10 Episode Script

The Original Sinners

1 I guess someone has to be the monster.
The one who favors reason and shatters dreams.
I've died and sacrificed my bond with Alex so many times for this train.
To surrender now would render that meaningless.
So maybe it was inevitable that the monster would be me.
All right, we hold here! Stay ready! If there's any trouble today, our job is to keep the factions apart.
Look, Melanie dropped a bomb.
Whether the Tail will fight for New Eden now Whether they'll fight for me.
Well, we'll see.
Back in the fatigues, I see.
I wish that weren't a good name for them.
Hey, you ready for this? Being the bad guys? If the passengers feel anything like I do about being lied to, we're not the bad guys.
Layton, Ben, the New Eden team, those guys are.
And Wilford? Still missing.
Well, that's a problem.
What are you doing? Trespassing.
Well, if you're here, the dam is breaking.
What dam? Melanie and Layton? No.
Whatever you're up to with him, I don't want any part of it.
John, I'm not on that side anymore.
John! Stop.
It's not like that.
You can trust me.
- "John" now, is it? - Clear! Just these two.
All right, move in! He's here.
Go! Go! Go! We're gonna set up right here! Get up.
Get up.
Let's go.
The original sinners, me and Melanie.
I should've known it would come down to this.
How else would we choose humanity's fate but by war On Snowpiercer, 1029 cars long? Oh It's time, darling.
I'm making my move.
I would ravish you here and now, but you understand.
We're fighting from the bottom.
I've got to be smart! We'll set up shop right here between the two camps.
A fine vantage.
Headwood! Where's our boy? Right here, sir.
There he is! Yes! Hello, lad.
Our new Coldman, rescued from the aquarium explosion, resurrected by the good doctor.
What do you think? Icy Boki! - Yeah! - Whoo! Boki! Boki! Boki! Boki! Boki! Boki! Obviously, I would love to have your support with Hospitality.
And I'm hoping you can tell me where Alex is right now.
She's probably with Mr.
You've shattered her dreams too.
We were going to New Eden in your honor, - completing your mission.
- No.
My mission is to ensure our survival on this train until we know it's safe to get off.
Will you help me complete that mission? Help me serve the passengers like you always have.
Any more on Wilford? Escaped and unaccounted for.
Javi's still not picking up, so I haven't been able to yell at him yet.
That's not gonna help.
She's probably right.
How long till the turn? 24 hours.
I don't wanna drop anchor yet, but I can slow us down.
I need you.
- Any news on where Alex is? - No word.
Hey, slow down just enough to piss them off.
Make Javi call us.
- On it.
- How bad is it? New Eden still has support, but anyone who was on the fence is backing Melanie.
Ag-Sec voted.
They want the train.
- Ag-Sec.
Jesus Christ.
- Yeah.
Well, maybe if the messaging off the top wasn't a lie.
The science still merits the risk.
- Yeah, I know.
- See? Let's go.
So? I don't know.
You better hear them out.
Thank you for coming.
Yo, Lay, the Tail came for answers, man.
Hey, New Eden was a lie, mate! We know it! Liar! I don't wanna hear anything The lie is on me.
It is.
I used dirty politics to try and bring the train together.
But hey, but! Don't let that overshadow what the Engineers have showed us is possible.
How possible are we really talking this time? Yeah.
Can you get us off this train or not? With you, I can get us there.
I can't promise you that New Eden can support life long-term.
Hey, but the Tail knows neither can this train.
We've suffered under Melanie's rule before.
We can't go back to that.
I don't know.
Can we can trust him again? Let's get it done then.
To New Eden! New Eden! You've got a visitor.
Good to see you.
Our relationship is so stimulating now it's personal.
Yeah, I do take murder personally, sir.
Just added three of my brakemen to the list.
I'm sorry about that.
They'll be the last bodies of this affair from me.
Some deterrence.
Breachman Boscovic.
Looking good.
We don't want anyone coming in here unannounced.
Do we, Boki? Apart from that, I'm just here to help you keep the two sides apart.
All right, everyone, listen up.
If anybody is here against their will, anybody who wants to leave, they can, with me, right now.
Audrey? - I'm out.
- Oz, where are you going? I'm not going with him.
Boki, why don't you show Mr.
Osweiller out? Come on.
Get up.
Get up.
Get up.
Let's go.
Come on! Go, Boki.
Yeah, Bokes! Just go easy on her, all right? I heard stories about you, about how ruthless you could be.
- Can we sit? - Congratulations, Mom.
Who knew you would make your move literally right after we saved you? We have to look at it objectively.
If you can't do that, you've lost your way as an Engineer.
Melanie, don't.
All I need you to do is speak to Layton before this goes any further.
Thank you for meeting with me.
I appreciate the opportunity to discuss facts.
The fact is, most of us accept the risk.
You never disclosed the risks.
You're putting all our eggs in one basket.
The track is not tested.
Melanie, take the turn, or the Tail army will do it for you.
Really? We both know it's a long march to the Engine.
You don't have the forces to defend.
I can hold you off long enough.
And then what? Endless seesaw battles for control? No.
We wait! We just wait until we know we're right.
Don't do that, Mom.
Change course.
The young people wanna get off.
How can I let you if it's not safe? I want you with me.
Then you'll have to take the turn.
Oh, come on! For pity's sake, both of you! In or out, Ruth? Well, I'm not letting you go on your own, am I? Hey, this isn't over.
Figure something out.
Now we gotta make a move.
Here we go! Here we go! How far are we going? Keep going till we control Ag-Sec.
It's the food supply.
We need the seed bank.
Get out of the way! - Keep it rolling.
- Move! Move! Move! Coming through! Ben, why are we slowing? I'm not braking, Javi.
You lie like a rug.
I can see it.
That's just a little resistance.
Here, have some more.
Hey, Ben? Do you mind looking after Liana for a minute? I won't be long.
Uh, well Come on, move! Out of the way! Y'all trying to face down a army with a garden hose? Out of the way! - Go, go, go! - Go, run! This is the last greenhouse, Layton! Tailies! Set up the front line here! - Go! Go! Go! - Out of the way! Out of the way! - Hey, we could keep on going.
- No! No, no, no.
If we trigger the first clash, it's all on us.
Have we heard from our forces uptrain? Yeah, yeah.
They're hiding and ready if we need them.
We'll need them.
Back off! I got information! Bess! Bess! Let him through! Move! Wilford took the Nightcar.
He's in there with about a dozen guys and Boki.
Boki's alive? Yeah, well, if you can call it that.
He's his new Coldman.
- What? - Audrey's in there too.
- What? Against her will? - I don't know.
She didn't leave when she had the chance.
Of course she didn't.
Together again, right? No.
No, she's not on Wilford's side.
Something you're not telling me? She's not going back to him.
She can't.
Psst! My whistle is wanting, and so is the help.
You think this is your room? I am the Nightcar.
Have you missed court, Audrey? Sir, Zarah is waiting for you in the back room.
- All right.
- No one is safe.
Hmm, vipers' nest out there.
Just how you like it, Joseph.
You'll be fanning the flames until you're the last one standing.
How can I help? I wanna make sure that our arrangement still stands.
That my daughter will be safe no matter how this all plays out.
Of course.
I intend to honor our agreement, as do you.
Layton took Ag-Sec without firing a shot.
His people stuck with him.
He holds all the cards now, Melanie.
Can the Brakemen hold him? Roche won't fight your war.
He serves the people.
You don't have the pull you once did, you know.
I need an ally.
Not Wilford.
I can control him.
That's not the point.
No, the point the point is this, it's everything.
Every last soul on Earth.
If I have to sell mine to protect theirs, so be it, right? Well, I'm sorry, but I've spent too long redeeming myself to go back now.
Oh! - Ow! - That had to hurt! The widow Headwood upgraded a side effect.
"Loss of sensation" is now "impervious to pain.
" Our finest Breachman yet.
Ready for the field.
No suit required.
Well, that's good.
Someone from Layton's side seems to have stolen all the breach suits.
The problem is, Melanie, you're a legend.
So you do have support former Firsties, some Guilds, et cetera but you're both militarily outmatched and down in the polls.
So you need me.
Two legends are better than one.
I believe if we were seen as united, then the majority of passengers would choose the train, yes.
Well, of course.
But it still comes down to fear, fear of Layton's colony, or fear of the train that got them this far.
There's only one way that this works.
Here it comes.
I'm Head Engineer.
And you retire from Engineering altogether.
It's my train.
Assuming generous comforts, meaningful consultation, and if I maintained control of certain interests of mine cold treatment for example Assuming all of that and all of my shame of cutting a deal with you, if that helps.
Ruth? Lights? You all on your own here? Yeah.
What are you doing here? I thought Layton would hide a team up here.
Right, well, I guess it's just us then.
I stole all the breach suits.
I'm waiting for more orders.
What's up out there? I'll fill you in later.
How are you communicating with Layton? Old-fashion way.
Oh, is that my little rat friend? Hey.
What a pair.
Together, we tip the scales.
The hope being that Layton won't go to war over New Eden without a majority.
And you really think this guy's gonna take a back seat? You're out to pasture, aren't you, Joseph? More of a trusted advisor.
Oh, this is gonna be great.
So right now, all I want is for you to take your men down there and stand in his way.
Excellent first step.
Exactly my counsel.
The goal is to prevent violence.
Let's show Layton the power has swung our way.
All right, folks, we're on the move! Shields up! We are marching downtrain to form up and prevent an advance.
- Let's go! - Move! Move out! Let's go! Brakemen! Brakemen coming! Roche picked a side.
Layton, Melanie and Wilford have joined forces against you.
Look, I'm sorry, it's just numbers, man.
You don't have the mandate now.
Who's taking that poll? They're voting with their feet up here.
You can't force them to the promised land.
So you came to force us back to the Tail? Listen! Discuss it amongst yourselves.
You got two hours to stand down.
We don't need two hours.
Just ask your Brakemen if they are really ready to do this! Yeah! All right, eyes front! Eyes front! If you got a better idea, hurry up with it! Prepare to brace! We may not want blood, but we're ready for it! We learned every inch of this track the hard way! And each one of us has earned our passage off of this ark! Yeah! Mel.
I made my choice like you demanded.
I left my friends to be here in the Engine with you.
Are you happy now? No.
I'm sorry.
I'm pretty sure some of my friends are going to die tonight.
I don't want that.
Alex, I'm trying Alex.
Got a message.
Ruth's uptrain with Lights.
They're ready.
We can punch through the Brakemen.
And then what? Half the people up there will fight with Wilford and Melanie.
And the other half are there against their will.
Like Audrey.
I'm not leaving her over there, Layton.
The turn's coming up.
We all know there's gonna be a cost.
We have put these lives on the line so many times.
There has to be a better way.
Getting close to the bell, huh? Yeah, it tolls for you too.
Look, this isn't to surrender or to bargain.
It's just to acknowledge.
All right.
Thanks for letting Alex cross over.
It was her choice.
And I knew she'd be a double-edged sword.
I'll probably lose her by trying to save her.
Yeah, we've both got enough ego to believe we can save everyone.
We set ourselves up in an impossible role.
Once you got the job, it's so hard to let it go.
You really wanna let Wilford be a part of that? You're falling right back into using fear to keep order.
You picked up the sword.
Right back to shedding blood.
Fear or blood? And either way he wins.
And we both lose.
What do you say, Icy Boki? Ready to go to downtrain and have some fun? Come on, Audrey, how about a song for the amassing troops? Come on.
I can't.
I won't do it anymore.
Put your lovely fingers back upon those keys.
Visitor, sir! Can't wait to get back to this.
Ah! What's wrong, Melanie? Everything's going our way.
It's Layton.
He won't back down.
Well, he had his chance.
I'm not ordering an attack.
For God's sake, rip off the band-aid! It's my call.
So if you want to remain relevant, help me come up with another solution.
Well, I might have something up my sleeve.
Less bloody, but requiring dark maneuvers on a more personal scale.
I may have access to something Layton will throw himself into the volcano for.
His daughter.
Straight out of your playbook, huh? The enemy's child.
It's a proven remedy.
Just give me the word, and I'll set it up.
Hurry, Zarah.
The time is now.
One day, Melanie, when I'm dead and gone, and you're an old woman watching Alex at the helm, you'll thank me for this.
I sincerely hope so.
We're here, Joseph.
There she is.
Hello! How are you? You're all safe and sound.
Everything you need to force a surrender.
Yeah, that's not gonna happen.
Oh, come on then, Iceman.
What you got, hey? Oh, shit.
Oh, no, no, no, no, no.
Oh, oh.
Come on, Boki.
Augh! Very crafty.
Are we all going to work this out amicably then? We are, only you're not coming to the table.
This was you, wasn't it, Melanie? Actually, Andre and I came up with it together.
I made it six months in here.
There's suspension fluid.
You can only stay under so long before you have to wake yourself up and figure out where you are.
You're too weak to simply cut my throat, Layton.
All of you.
Goodbye, Joseph.
Everyone out.
Now, you old bastard, I reach down and send you into hell.
Now we'll see who's the real survivor.
It's a good way forward.
The ones we love, that'll be the cost.
Citizens of Snowpiercer, as the fork to New Eden approaches, I am proud to say that we have found a way through our impasse.
We agree the only course is compromise, and the answer is individual choice.
The train will be divided in Ag-Sec.
Every passenger will be allowed to choose between the train with me and New Eden with Andre Layton.
Those who choose New Eden need to understand we don't know what we'll find there.
The journey will be dangerous.
And, yes, it will require a leap of faith.
But more importantly, desire to build a new society.
Those of you who remain, we know that life will continue to be hard on Snowpiercer.
Bit by bit, the train is breaking down.
But we will no longer add to that hardship with oppression.
The train will run on science and truth.
And we will share the burden of our limited resources together.
Thank you.
Whatever your choice, find hope and respect in your neighbor's fate.
Talk to your families.
Say goodbye to your friends.
The train will separate in just under six hours.
So What do you wanna do? I was the best version of myself here.
You showed me that.
Yeah, what was I thinking? I have something to give here, with art and who I am and how I can heal people in my own way.
I need to stay, Bess.
I I've been dreaming to get off this train for so long.
I know.
I can't see a life for me on the Snowpiercer anymore.
Even if you loved me? Even if I loved you.
Oh, well.
I'll see you before we break.
Ah, shit.
Come here.
Come here.
- You want coffee? - Yeah.
What are you gonna do? We're going.
How about you? I'm coming with you.
At least we'll be together.
Anyway, I gave Carly the choice.
I definitely want off.
So that's what we're doing.
Cheers, boss.
Cheers, Bess.
So how long do you think she can keep going? If you're lucky, you hop from crisis to crisis for another decade.
Maybe two.
I need you, Ben.
I needed you too.
I followed your science to the decision of getting off.
- You nearly killed it.
- It's still alive.
It's just down the line.
And if we're together, I know we can get there.
I will serve with you till the end of the world, but that's only half of it.
You want me to stay? I need the rest of you.
I'm here.
I'm yours.
Well, then New Eden can wait.
Melanie and Ben are the best Engineers there's ever been.
I need to keep learning with them.
I'll be fine.
Hey, one Tail.
- One Tail.
- One Tail.
Okay, no crying.
I'll meet you at the breakpoint to say goodbye.
- Yeah.
- Come here.
I love you guys.
- That hurts.
- Yeah.
Everyone's got to choose their own path.
It's all these pieces left behind.
There are enough pieces left for us to put ourselves back together.
Are you with me? Yeah, I'm with you.
Downtrain to New Eden.
Uptrain to stay.
Hello? Service? This part of the train isn't stopping, you know.
Well, he's a pilgrim now.
There's still time to come with me, LJ.
You're chickening out, from me, from power, and for what? To go plant potatoes in an igloo? - You don't even know.
- Yeah.
I like that part.
Goodbye, Lilah Junior Folger-Osweiller.
Yeah, I'm gonna drop the Osweiller! I'm gonna come out on top! I'm a survivor! Oh Um I may or may not have put a lot of socks in there.
There's a first aid kit and my jacket.
You probably don't want it, but it's the one I survived in.
- I have to go.
- I know.
I don't remember what the Earth is like, and I I wanna find out.
It's your choice.
I'm just so happy that you're here now.
- Mom.
- Yeah.
The Train is falling apart.
The track is deteriorating.
You know you don't have to worry about me, huh? I'm gonna be okay, and you will too.
- I love you.
- I love you too.
I love you so much.
I'm so proud of you.
Thank you.
I'm so proud of you.
I'm so sorry I'm so sorry for all the things that I did.
- It's okay.
- I'm so sorry for It's okay.
Ease their journey And keep them safe.
And you don't need a protocol manual for that, Tristan.
Citizens of Snowpiercer, we are five minutes to separation.
Please make your final arrangements and stay clear of the disconnection point.
For those aboard Big Alice, farewell and good luck.
- One Tail! - One Tail, Layton! I guess we're guardians of each other's loved ones now.
Well, that gives me hope.
We'll take care of her.
I know you will.
Good luck, Andre.
Godspeed, Melanie.
Separation in 20, 19, - 18, 17 - No, - I can't do it.
- 16 - 15 - Um I'm sorry, you're the one I have to lose.
12, 11, 10 - Yeah.
Go get her.
- Okay.
8, 7, 6 Take care of each other.
5, 4, 3, 2, 1.
Separating now.
Goodbye, Javi.
Adios, amigo.
Yes it's gonna be a cold, lonely summer But I will fill the emptiness I'll send you all my love Every day in a letter Sealed with a kiss Sealed with a kiss The track is so bad.
It's impossible to find a good speed.
Too slow, and the railbed's collapsing under our weight.
Too fast, and we'll jump the washboard.
We're just gonna have to ride it out.
Shit! We're shaking the wheels off.
Oh, shit! It's gonna be worth it.
We're gonna be outside in the sunshine so soon, okay? Solid numbers.
Energy distribution's improved.
It's the loss of weight.
- Can you still see them? - No.
They've got weather.
Fast train Where do your passengers wait? Shouldn't we be at the warm spot? - Should be.
- What's at the heart All right, here we go.
The front of the train's hitting the old trestle bridge.
The what? Of your Engine's rage? You weren't gonna tell nobody about that? I didn't wanna worry you, man.
To what smooth place at the end of the line With crackling fires and quiet plains Do the trees bend down And fold their arms round you? Welcome home, faithful one We forgive you Oh That valley over there should be the best place for a microclimate.
Ooh - Accelerate.
- Ooh Hit the bridge at full speed.
Ooh Ooh - Let's go, Old Alice.
- Slow down, fast train Slow down, fast train Take me with you Brace for impact.
Slow down, fast train Slow down, fast train Take me with you Prepare to brace.
She's coming off.
Full speed.
Ooh - We're here.
- We okay? Yeah, she's good.
Aw, it's okay.
What's the temperature, Alex? I'm reading.
Um, it's minus ten.
It's actually minus five now.
It's climbing.
Inversion? Yeah, inversion.
Passengers, we're in a warm spot, and temperatures are rapidly rising.
It's melting.
Um Yeah, let's get out of here.
Here you go.
Watch it.
- Okay.
- Watch out.
Welcome to the New World.
