Snowpiercer Season 2 finale spoilers: What will happen to Ruth?

The Snowpiercer Season 2 finale airs on Monday, and there’s one big question from the promo. What will happen to Ruth?

Melanie went through some major changes during the first season. During Snowpiercer Season 2, it’s been all about Ruth’s development. She’s gone from the naïve Wilford follower to someone who wants a better life on the train. However, there’s a threat to her life before she can even see something good.

Wilford is now in charge. Layton has become a prisoner thanks to so many people turning against him. He may not be the only one.

A glimpse of Ruth at the end of the promo for the Snowpiercer Season 2 finale suggests that she’s going to end up in the same place as Layton. And it’s time for the two of them to work together if they want out of their holding cell. If you’d have told me this was going to happen when the series first began, I’d have laughed at that idea.

Ruth is willing to fight to save the train on the Snowpiercer Season 2 finale

One thing that Layton wants to know is if Ruth is willing to “risk everything.” And she is.

This isn’t just about the train. It’s about Melanie, too.

The last we saw Melanie, she’d been left behind after heading to the Rockies to collect data. Wilford doesn’t want that data. By finding out there’s a chance the Earth is cooling a lot sooner than expected, Wilford knows that he will lose his followers. As a narcissist, he needs the followers to feel some sort of sense of being. He needs to be worshipped.

Ruth wants the best for humanity, and that means she wants to get Melanie back.

And it turns out Melanie has some startling information. That data may bring some great news, and it’s going to tear the train apart. Ruth will do whatever she can to make sure the information is released for those who do want a chance of survival outside.

Will Ruth make it out of this season alive? I certainly hope so considering the redemption arc she’s been given. Now she needs the opportunity to make change where she can to protect the people of Snowpiercer.
