Caution: There are major spoilers for Snowpiercer Season 2, Episode 7 in this post.
First, let’s talk whether Layton was at a risk of losing his arm or not. As tensions rose along the train, people were looking for others to blame. The Tailies found that, but it wasn’t in Layton.
It was only when someone was about to lose an arm that Layton stepped in. As the leader, he was the one responsible. He was the one that should lose the arm.
It was going to take a lot for anyone to choose not to take Layton’s arm in this moment. So, was this it? Was this the thing that would make everyone turn against Layton and put Wilford back in charge of the train?

What happened to Layton on Snowpiercer Season 2, Episode 7?
When Layton told them to take his arm, the group of Tailies obliged. As that happened, Ruth started thinking about the time she took the arm of someone from the Tail. We got flashes of everything that happened at the start of the series.
Ruth realized just how wrong it was to take the arm. She has had some excellent character development since the beginning of the series, and I’m sure there’s still more to come.
However, it’s all about this moment. She managed to stop the mob from taking Layton’s arm, making it clear that it’s not the way things should happen anymore. It’s not the way it should have ever happened.
While Layton got to keep his arm, he doesn’t get to keep control of the train. The people of Snowpiercer have spoken. They want Wilford back in charge.
