Here's the 'Snowpiercer' Season 3 ending explained.

In the Season 3 Finale of Snowpiercer, Melanie Cavill (Jennifer Connelly) and Andre Layton (Daveed Diggs) enter into a pact to assume distinctive leadership roles.

Having toppled Wilford (Sean Bean) and done away with the old world order, they give the people a choice, urging them to decide whether they would like to stick around on the train or join Layton on an adventure to New Eden, a location thought to boast a warm climate and suitable living conditions.

In the episode, Andre and the passengers of Big Alice make it all the way to the Horn of Africa. Once there, they dismount, ready to do some exploring and soak up the warm rays of the sun.

Melanie and Andre manage to get rid of Wilford — or so it seems for a while.

Together Melanie and Andre are able to banish Joseph Wilford, the antagonist exhibiting a strong populist politician-like streak.

Jackboots and LJ Folger (Annalise Basso) try to support their leader at a time of dire need — but they don't stand a chance. Ultimately, Wilford ends up in a Drawer with about half a year's worth of suspension drugs.

"I think he seems like a pretty resilient character. So I think — I mean, I don't know the answer myself so no spoilers here— but he's proven himself to be quite resilient" she told Newsweek. "It's possible [he'd survive]. I think that it was right, that she that they had to take him out of the equation in one way or another."
