Why Does Melanie Expose Layton’s Lie in Snowpiercer Season 3 Episode 9?
Melanie is troubled when she learns that Layton planted a deception among the Snowpiercer’s passengers in order to lead the train to New Eden. Melanie refuses to accept Layton endangering the lives of the train passengers without a promise that life would survive in New Eden, despite the fact that she understands that lying is unavoidable in certain situations.
Melanie examines the information and concludes that human survival in the Arabian warm area is unlikely. During her talk with Wilford, the ruthless engineer warns her of the hazards of going across the perilous rails that lie ahead as they approach New Eden.
Melanie considers the hazards and benefits of travelling to the Arabian hotspot and comes to the conclusion that going to New Eden is suicidal. She discusses it with Layton at the party. Layton, on the other hand, believes that New Eden is their only option for survival.
With the Snowpiercer’s resources running out, Layton encourages the passengers to take a chance and continue the journey. Layton fantasises about a future in which his daughter’s world is not limited to the Snowpiercer’s automobiles. He urges Melanie to believe his falsehood in order for his dream to come true.
Melanie argues that jeopardising the lives of the few survivors of the freeze isn’t the way ahead, even after Layton explains his reasons. Rather than risking the Snowpiercer derailing and killing all of the passengers, Melanie chooses to spare their lives, even if it means foregoing humanity’s sole chance of survival outside the train.
As a result, Melanie informs the passengers that Layton has not gone to New Eden to see if life exists in the region in order to thwart Layton’s objective.
How does Wilford get out of Prison? What happened to Him?
Layton becomes the new leader of the pirate train after reconnecting it to the Snowpiercer, and Wilford is imprisoned. Wilford is kept in nice prison quarters after surviving a near-fatal bullet wound. The high-tech security Layton employs to keep Wilford confined does not, however, prevent him from fleeing the prison.
LJ devises a plot with Mrs. Headwood to assist Wilford in escaping from his confinement, outraged by Layton’s re-emergence as the train’s captain. Mrs. Headwoods administers a toxic substance to LJ, which reaches Wilford via the housekeeper who prepares his meal.
Wilford infuses the poison into the cigarettes he gives to his bodyguards. The officers are killed by the toxic cigars, allowing Wilford to flee without leaving any trace of his location. Since Melanie exposed Layton’s deception, Wilford has been anticipating an uprising that will bring Layton’s downfall.
He could elude Layton’s officers until the passengers depose him for betraying them. When the residents of the Snowpiecer punish Layton for his lying, Wilford may be able to profit from their rage by reclaiming control of the train.
