Peacemaker Episode 4 release date, time, plot, trailer, and HBO Max schedule for The Suicide Squad spinoff

Peacemaker returns to HBO Max this week with Episode 4.

Peacemaker dropped viewers directly into James Gunn’s vision of superhero craziness when HBO Max’s Suicide Squad spinoff premiered its first three episodes last week. Based on DC Comics’ buff, homicidal, super-patriot — and with Gunn steering the ship — the series continues the exploration of the traitorous Suicide Squad member, as he seeks freedom from prison and redemption for his past transgressions.

John Cena leads Peacemaker, and his performance here puts the actor’s comedy chops on full display. Keeping things entertaining is the support of the show’s ensemble cast which delivers the snappy dialogue Gunn is known for while giving audiences a rag-tag team worth rooting for. Could Project: Butterfly be humanity’s only hope for salvation? It seems so. With so much going on in the show, it’s not surprising that fans are champing at the bit to see what happens next in Episode 4.

What is the Peacemaker Episode 4 plot?

Peacemaker is a continuation of James Gunn’s Suicide Squad movie and follows Peacemaker (John Cena) as he ventures out on another crazy adventure to save the world.

Episode 4 is expected to pick up where the third episode left off, as Peacemaker and Vigilante (Freddie Stroma) are still trying to make sense out of their violent confrontation with Senator Goff, after Vigilante steps in for Peacemaker to murder the entire family. Turns out the Goffs were all “butterflies,” but what does that mean exactly?

It’s possible they’ll get the answers they’re looking for from the tiny, but lethal, Judomaster (Nhut Le). Something tells us, though, that John Economos (Steve Agee) may have bitten off more than he can chew by taking the Goffs’ green bodyguard prisoner all by himself.
