Series co-creator and showrunner Graeme Manson also talks the changing dynamic aboard the nonstop locomotive.

In the Season 1 finale’s final moments, the train was overtaken by Big Alice, the prototype to Snowpiercer. Wilford was presumed dead by Hospitality head and true person at the helm Melanie Cavill (Jennifer Connelly) after she dumped him from the locomotive for his destructive ways.

Now, Wilford is making a return that’s shaking things up almost as much as the revelation that Melanie’s long-lost daughter Alexandra (Rowan Blanchard) is alive and aboard Big Alice.

In the sneak peek, which was shared by TNT on Twitter, teases Mr. Wilford seeking revenge after being abandoned by Melanie.

“Snowpiercer will tear itself apart,” Bean’s Wilford eerily states in the sneak peek above. “I’m back and I’ve come to take what’s mine.”

It may be some time before fans see how the story pans out, but rest assured Season 2 is making its way down the tracks.
