Snowpiercer season 2 episode 5 airs at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Monday (February 22).
Season 2 will continue to air at this time, weekly, on TNT.
Tonight we continue to watch Snowpiercer season 2 online, with episode 5 (entitled "Keep Hope Alive"). And we're just sitting here wondering how peace won't survive. No, don't call us pessimists: it just seems like the truce between Layton's folks on the Snowpiercer and Mr. Wilford's crew on Big Alice isn't meant to last.
The chaotic scramble ahead is foretold in the episode description: "Layton and Miss Audrey make a risky play for Big Alice, but Wilford has his own plans." Miss Audrey (Lena Hall)'s ties to Mr. Wilford have been deeper than we thought, and will likely play a role tonight.
It all continues on the same track that season 1 had. Our survivors are in a post-apocalyptic world, stuck on a train that won't stop and struggling to survive. It's only natural that the series found a way to divide their numbers.

The series is a reboot of Bong Joon-ho (Parasite) movie of the same name, which itself was an adaptation of the French graphic novel Le Transperceneige.
Snowpiercer's show-runner is Orphan Black co-creator Graeme Manson, and it's delving into into similar issues as the movie. While that began as the divide between the wealthy at the front of the train and the poor and oppressed at the back of the train, the addition of Mr. Wilford's train complicates things further.
"As a fan of the film and reading the scripts, it broadens the world exponentially. and that's one of the advantages of TV, you have time," Diggs explained to reporters in 2017. "So the politics that are hinted at in the film are explored in much more depth, and the mechanism of the train [is explored further] — just the little things that create a world, world specificity. It's the thing, specifics, it's why i'm a sci-fi nerd."
