Ok, what we saw ---
So Roy got left behind, and we're meant to think that Carlos bashed him over the head and left him for dead.
Jessie waits for him at the next station, and is joined by Carlos and Abby. Carlos makes a move again on Jessie, and angers Abby when she finds out that he told Jessie about the Russian dolls.
The next morning, Carlos asks to take a shower in Jessie's room as his water is off. She receives a call and races off - it's Roy! He's alive, and was just being stupid. Now she can relax, so decides to go and see a local church with Carlos.
They are dropped off by a bus, and she takes pictures of the rundown old building. Carlos makes a move again, and she goes along with it until a beam breaks and disturbs them. She decides not to go ahead with it and stay loyal to Roy. Carlos turns nasty and tries to force her to have sex. He chases after her. She smacks him over the head with a bit of wood.
He then apologises and says he wouldn't hurt her -- but she smacks him again. Blood oozes from his forehead and he collapses. She just stares at his dead body as it is covered with snow. She gets back on the bus and returns to the hotel.
Roy shows up at the station. She hugs him and they get on the train. Abby frantically looks for Carlos, and Jessie is relieved to see that she doesn't get on the train. Jessie meets their new cabin partner - a Russian drug cop, Grinko (Ben Kingsley). He starts to ask questions about their old cabin buddies, and Jessie increasingly acts strange because of the guilt.
Jessie soon looks into her suitcase to find the stash of Russian dolls - Carlos put them inside her bags when he took a shower in her room. She can't get rid of them. Grinko asks more questions, and soon suspects that something is up.
Jessie finally confides in Roy and shows him the bag. He takes it straight to Grinko, who also shows his plain-clothes fellow officer on the train (the guy in the white tracksuit). They continue their journey -- but when Jessie goes to the dining car she finds the entire train is empty - leaving just Grinko and his officer in the engine room.
The train stops, and they are escorted to a dark building ... where inside Abby has been badly tortured. Roy and Jessie are near hysterical. Grinko explains that Carlos and Abby are just pawns working for a big crime boss, and he wants to know what happened to the money - and where Carlos is now...
And then the movie stopped!!! So, if you've seen it, please tell us what happens next!
