Snowpiercer has wasted no time in revealing its murderer

We’re just three episodes into Snowpiercer and the murder mystery that pulled Layton out of the Tail. The show has wasted no time in revealing who the murderer is, which means the fourth episode show be focused on capturing the person.

This isn’t just a show that has revealed the murderer to us. Usual, a show will let the audience know who the murderer is a few episodes in but leave it a mystery to the lead detective on the case. However, Layton has figured it all out.

It suggests that Snowpiercer was never going to be purely about the murder in the first place. There’s something bigger in the story to come. But first, the murderer needs to be caught.

Who is the murderer on Snowpiercer?

There have been a few hints at who the murderer likely is. After all, there have been some glances between two particular passengers on Snowpiercer from the beginning. LJ and her family’s bodyguard certainly have some secrets they’re trying to keep hidden.

Is it murder? It very well could be!

LJ’s bodyguard is definitely the murderer. At the end of Snowpiercer Episode 3, he killed the witness to the first murder. You remember the girl who had ended up in the drawer and was suffering from coming back out after being woken up.

But there’s a problem in all this. We know that whoever killed Sean got off on castrating him. That’s something Till realized. Meanwhile, chopping up the body was purely a matter of cleaning up the situation. That suggests the Folger bodyguard isn’t the only one involved in the murder.

There’s a strong chance that LJ is also involved. She certainly seems like the type of person who would be sadistic enough. There are some sociopathic tendencies.

Will justice be served?

One of the reasons First Class wants this situation cleared up quickly is because Third Class is on the brink of rioting. First Class wants natural order.

However, is First Class really going to be happy enough with one of their own going down for the murder. Granted, it looks like LJ is guilty as sin, but there isn’t much evidence to point toward her.

The murder could be pinned on the bodyguard. That wouldn’t be all that complicated. While the Folgers would temporarily be looked at with suspicion, they’d get over the fact that their bodyguard was responsible for Third Class murders.

It’s most likely that justice won’t be served. How will Snowpiercer deal with a murder trial?
