WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD.
Recap of Snowpiercer Season 3 Episode 6
Layton asks Pike and a few other Tailies to protect him and his family from an unknown opponent in the sixth episode of ‘Snowpiercer‘ season 3, titled ‘Born to Bleed.’ Bess’ research takes her to Lights, and the trained detective discovers that Lights’ notes were used to make the bomb.
When Bess tells Layton that only a few people were aware of the notes’ existence, the latter deduces that Pike is the enemy. Pike escapes from Layton and his guys when he realises Layton knows it’s him.
He meets Asha, who claims she has been hiding in the dark for years because her lie about New Eden has been exposed.
Ruth approaches Roche in the psychiatry car and requests that he return. He informs her that the only reason he’s doing this is to kill Wilford.
Carly befriends Alex, who invites her to meet her father. LJ is bribed by Miss Audrey to get into the first-class so she can meet Wilford.
To reclaim his power and leadership in the Snowpiercer, she begs Wilford to fight Layton when he is defenceless.
A wheelchair-bound Wilford, on the other hand, can only ignore her wish and respond that Layton may be correct about New Eden. Audrey grows enraged at Wilford and storms out of the room.
While investigating Pike’s cabin, Ruth runs across Layton and Bess. They find Lights’ notes and present them to Ruth, who recognises Pike as the perpetrator of the fire and explosion.
As they consider how to apprehend Pike, Josie and Miles advise “Old Ivan’s way,” a Tailie tradition in which two people face-to-face discuss and settle their problems in whichever way they see fit.
He invites Pike to come to the Tail to settle the problem, knowing that he can’t ignore precedent. Meanwhile, Carly meets with Roche to persuade him to rejoin her in her normal life.
Is Pike Dead in ‘Snowpiercer’ Season 3 Episode 6?
Pike accepts Layton’s invitation and travels to the Tail to address the situation with Layton. Pike holds firm in his ideals when Layton tries to settle the problem by giving luxury.
He makes it plain that he isn’t the type of person Layton can simply purchase. Pike begins to feel inadequate when Layton becomes the Snowpiercer’s leader.
He begins to despise Layton’s attempt to control the fate of all the passengers solely on the basis of his own reasoning and desires.
Layton’s hate for his former brother-in-arms is fueled by the power and influence he has over others, particularly Pike.
Pike’s concerns about New Eden fuel his desire to see Layton’s reign come to an end. When Asha’s remark about her previous life confirms Pike’s suspicions, he becomes determined to see Layton killed, and instead of a verbal discussion, he begs for blades.
In the knife fight, though, Layton emerges triumphant. He battles Pike and eventually stabs him to death. Layton can continue with his New Eden storey now that Pike has died, at least until the Snowpiercer arrives at the Arabian warm spot.
Pike’s rashness contributed to his death. Rather of allowing Layton to speak and persuade him as a brother, Pike went with his gut, which led to his death.
Is Layton Dead in ‘Snowpiercer’ Season 3 Episode 6?
Layton wasn’t physically capable of fighting Pike when he requested a knife battle. Despite the fact that the explosion caused damage to his skull, Layton was compelled to fight Pike for his life.
Throughout the struggle, Pike repeatedly struck Layton in the head. After paying his respects to Pike’s body, Layton experiences visions and suffering before collapsing.
Even though Layton’s physical condition is concerning, the explosion’s aftereffects and the pain inflicted by Pike aren’t severe enough to kill him.
Layton may have gone out from weariness rather than dying because he pushed his body for the investigation and the difficult fight with Pike.
Peace aboard Snowpiercer? That’s just a fantasy. How do you think Layton will handle Pike’s betrayal? Prepare for tonight’s new #Snowpiercer episode with this recap of last week and a closer look at what’s to come. pic.twitter.com/OjCFWbVpfQ

We can expect Josie to discover Layton and take him to Dr. Pelton if he passes out in the Tail. Layton might quickly recover under Pelton’s guidance.
Miss Audrey’s desire to see Wilford return as the leader may turn out to be a dangerous problem for Layton, even though he escapes death during the fight with Pike.
Layton’s life would not be as secure as he believes if Pike had uncovered Layton and Asha’s lie prior to his death.
