Snowpiercer Sneak Peek: Mr. Wilford Speaks Up to Soothe a Tense Train

This week on TNT’s Snowpiercer, things grow so tense aboard the titular 1,001-car train that the mysterious Mr. Wilford is forced to directly intervene, as seen (or heard) in this exclusive sneak peek.

In the post-apocalyptic drama’s third episode, titled “Access Is Power” and airing Sunday at 9/8c, Layton (played by Daveed Diggs) descends into Snowpiercer’s black market with Breachman Till (Mickey Sumner), searching for both the killer and a commodity that could prove invaluable for the tailie’s revolution.

Stirring the pot around their investigation, however, are brewing tensions born of the central murder mystery, the rough patch of weather and other factors. As such, hospitality chief Melanie (Jennifer Connelly) stages a “fight night” in the Night Car to distract the passengers.

As fight night looms, who best to kick off the festivities but Snowpiercer’s own creator, Mr. Wilford? Press play above to see what the enigmatic overlord has to say to his passengers.
