Spoilers for 'Snowpiercer' Season 1 Episode 3 'Access Is Power'

TNT's 'Snowpiercer' is quickly gaining steam as class tensions continue to rise and the mystery driving the season gets deeper. Episode 3 'Access Is Power' kicked things up a notch with Melanie Cavill (Jennifer Connelly) staging a "Fight Night" to distract the passengers from their mounting discontent and the fans loved it. 

A number of the show's fans took to Twitter to talk about the episode and they've been drawing a lot of comparisons between Snowpiercer's Fight Night and the sort of gladiatorial battles that kept the Romans entertained in ancient times.

"Fight Night on @SnowpiercerTV looks like Night at the Roman Coliseum. #Snowpiercer," one fan tweeted while another wrote, "Now that's a fight night! #Snowpiercer". Yet another fan made a 'Fight Club' joke writing, "Apparently there's one rule of Fight Night on #Snowpiercer: 'DO talk about Fight Night' 😂." Distractions aside, the plot itself continues to thicken with the Folgers' bodyguard Erik (Matt Murray) killing a whole bunch of people to get to Nikki Genêt (Madeleine Arthur).

"Well, at least the creepy doctor is dead," one fan wrote. "This is gonna be one of those shows that don't fully make sense until the finale. The only person I fully trust is Layton. I can't wait until the curtain is finally pulled back on Melanie." Another fan replied to that tweet writing, "AGREED!!! #Snowpiercer I ask questions every episode like I haven't seen the last one 🤦🏾‍♀️."

"This show gets more intense every episode I love it #Snowpiercer," yet another fan declared.

Here's the synopsis for Season 1 Episode 3 'Access Is Power': "Layton descends into Snowpiercer's black market with Till, searching for both the killer and a valuable commodity for his revolution; Melanie stages a prize fight to distract the passengers from mounting class tension." The show features an ensemble cast including Jennifer Connelly, Daveed Diggs, Alison Wright, Mickey Sumner, Iddo Goldberg, and many more. 

'Snowpiercer' Season 1 airs new episodes every Sunday at 9 pm ET on TNT. Outside of the US and China, episodes are made available on Netflix one week after they air on the network.
