Many fans of FX’s “Snowfall” have a lot of questions after the latest episode. And they are hoping tonight’s episode will answer the biggest one. And that’s whether or not Franklin Saint was killed. He was shot by his childhood sweetheart Melody.

Melody was able to figure out that Fraklin shot and killed her father Andre. Andre was a police officer and Franklin quickly became a foe after Andre vowed to put him behind bars for selling drugs in the neighborhood. And Andre’s passion to do just that intensified after Melody became addicted to crack. After Andre made it clear that he would never back off on taking down Franklin, Franklin killed him.

So Melody took Franklin by surprise and shot him after Andre’s funeral. There has been a lot of confusion regarding Franklin’s fate. Some think he died. Others believe he will survive. However, the actor who plays his uncle on the show penned an interesting tweet after the episode aired.

    This is easily one of the best shows on TV. I think Amin is just trolling. It’s too soon to kill off the main character.

      Frankin isn’t dead this is only to keep us in suspence and it has done just that. If you look at it closely Franklin cant die why? To much is at state right now to loose the man who put this operation together. I knew for a fact that this girl was going to shoot Franklin I love to write so i seen where this was heading already and I knew it would be frankin to kill Aundrey he had no choice. It’s on now for real I predict that Frankin homeboy is about to take over just for awhile till Frankin recover and because of this Blood will be shed.

      I thought he recovered from two Gun shots from his girl , and started using a Cain to walk. He didn’t die, not yet…. I felt like Ghost should of not been killed yet, I won’t watch power anymore.. especially his son doing it, that’s the worst ending ever.. stupid..

    I hope he isn’t dead but I don’t have good feeling about it. It looked like he did die.

    I think he’ll survive but his uncle or louie will die tonight. That last episode when those two were telling each other all they have to do is survive was foreshadowing.

    If he’s dead, a lot of people aren’t going to watch the show anymore.

      Wow! That hurt, I hope Franklin is not dead. I love him in his role. I watch the series to see what he is going to do next. I hate he killed Mel’s dad. But something need to bring her back to reality. A great mind is a terrible thing to waste and the same goes for Franklin. If still alive, it would be nice to see him complete his education because knowledge is power. Get educated on all aspects of the game, the law and the government involvement. Just be brilliant! As well as, look back and save the children.

    The show has potential but they play it safe a LOT. Franklin just does not have a REAL reason to be in the drug game.2 seasons and no real consequences for Franklin

    • Moses

      September 11, 2019 at 9:38 pm

      No REAL consequences? His girlfriend is a crackhead…Though he wasn’t trying to, he killed his best friend..Though he was a police officer coming for Saint, he killed a man who helped raise him and has to live with that for life…Sounds like real consequences to me

      Franklin can’t die ,its like killing ghost in POWER …The girl is on drugs and this is just one of tripping vision.. He would never go to her house like that after all he did to the dad.

    You got that right I will not watch snowfall anymore. So writers and producers do not kill off Franklin.

    Best show on tv won’t get the love cause of the content of the show, but if the cast was different then it would be a whole another ball game. Keep this going could be bigger than the Wire

      I played basketball in southern cal during this period most of my teammates were from all the area’s in this series. I am committed every week to watching this hit show, guys took me home and this crack was happening so fast so serious i was scared to be there, franklin is proof of the arrogant of men who overlook brilliance so its energy is put to use in a public negative manner. Best show on tv in many years due to you can relate as the crack epidemic hit your area .

    I’ve been watching Snowfall from day one, and Franklin is the show. I think if you kill him off there is no show dont get me wrong the cast is wonderful together but let him become who he is wanting to be…. The king👑. This show can become bigger than Power or Empower or some of those other power shows. Let them do their thing. I run home to see this show, I drop things to see Franklin’s next move he is smart and cunning. I can’t wait to see next season. Dont change the players please. I love 💗 this show I have so many people watching and enjoying the players.💖

      Remember the players change over the years the game does as well but the game is always there and young hungry youngsters looking to come up want to move up and you cant stay on top forever

    Hey LT, What?The cast is perfect,the content IS the show.I happened to check it out maybe around episode 4 of season 3 & am hooked,no pun intended.I’m not sure I know what you mean by what you wrote.I understand the content thing since crack isn’t so much a drug of choice in these ice & h times,but the consequences were major clusterf*k policies & inequalities that wiped out a couple of generations so the history will always be relevant. Who would you cast?

    Franklin is not dead he had to get him shot up real bad to make him grow now when the season 4 comes back they will show you the dark dark side of him and how ruthless drug dealers had start to become in the 80s and 90s that’s why Franklin is laying on the floor possibly dead to make the character more cold hearted after being shot up and almost died

    • Luigi Daniels

      You are right and i agree, when Melody was shooting Franklin she hit no vital areas of his torso, i told friends that. If discovered before bleeding out he was saved. Dude is a star, cast are stars, totally believable characters for most of us. I just hope john singleton ideas for scripts continues thru series. Luigi

    Snow falls finale has got me confused I don’t know if Franklin is alive or if he’s on the operating table being operated on it seems like he’s on the operating table looking back at his life and what it could become

    • Jacqueline Jones

      Let me get this straight ? I was confused also but the last 5mins of the episode shows when Franklin meets up with Teddy? & said what he wanted with the gov. behind him?he was still walkin with the cane? It’s like he got shot 3 times and while he was was out he was reliving his life over if he would had never got into the drug business but continued with his education? Which he choose not to do? & said he wasnt gone be a slaved nothing or nobody? So he’s alive & gone changed the game up been more positive & helping his community? Great show!! Looking forward to season 4

    Franklin is not dead because he is the show. He is trying to heal but coming back full force. Just can’t wait for the new season. What ever happened to Melody for shooting him? That’s what I want to know!!!!!
