Title: I Brought You Here/Sit in the Back/Reinventing the Wheel
Set on the Snowpiercer in the arctic apocalypse. Curtis (Chris Evans) and his gang of tail-enders are living a shit life after years in the back of the train.
Minister Mason (Tilda Swinton) comes to feed the tail-end passengers their protein bars and to take some talent from the back. The Woman in Yellow brings all the children up front, and measures them. She takes Tanya’s older son, Leo (not without resistance). Tanya screams and cradles her infant son, Timmy.
Then Mason asks for a mathematician.
Katharine (Taraji P Henson) raises her hand. She’s going to get Leo back.
Katharine is brought to an office car a few cars ahead. She passes the prison car, the protein bar car, and the water car–where she sees her old friend Mary Jackson (Janelle Monae), who was taken by Mason several months before. They can only exchange a few words before they have to part.
Katharine is brought to a car with several offices, and sat down across from two men in clean white shirts and black ties. They call Wilford.
“I suppose you’re wondering why I brought you here,” says Wilford over the phone, “I understand you’re a mathematician, Katharine. You’re going to help me plan the next tail-section rebellion, which will ultimately fail and cause 74% of the tail-section passengers to die.”
Katharine thinks, I sent a man to the moon. Rocket science is not necessarily the same as statistics but I can be one hundred percent sure that I will kill Wilford.
“Okay,” she says.
