Peacemaker Episode 5 release date, time, plot, trailer, and HBO Max schedule for John Cena’s DCEU show

You won’t want to miss the new episode of Peacemaker.

Peacemaker pulls no punches as we dive in deeper to figure out what makes Christopher Smith (John Cena) tick. It’s a concept many fans never thought would happen. After all, Peacemaker betrayed the rest of the Suicide Squad on the big screen only to be left for dead. Do we even need this spinoff show?

Technically, no. But halfway through Season 1, it’s become quickly evident that Peacemaker’s got much more life in him. He and Eagly (his eagle bestie) are on a new world-saving adventure, and things are getting increasingly bonkers as each episode passes. Thankfully he’s got the Project: Butterfly gang to watch his back because it looks like the enemy they’re after is a formidable one, to say the least.

With the cards stacked against them, and the stakes mounting, the desire to know what’s coming in Episode 5 is nearing a fever pitch. Here is everything you need to know about Peacemaker Season 1 Episode 5, from its release date and time to its title and runtime.

What is the Peacemaker Episode 5 plot?

Some big revelations were dropped last week when Peacemaker learned his father was put in jail for the explosive butterfly murder Peacemaker committed back in Episode 1. Economos switched his fingerprints with Auggie’s to keep the cops off their trail. Unsurprisingly, Peacemaker’s dad is no stranger to being locked up. In fact, he’s a highly-revered white supremacist supervillain also known by the name White Dragon.

Some repressed memories came to the surface for Peacemaker regarding his childhood, and the abuse he experienced when he was a kid at the hands of his dad. When Adebayo posed the notion to Vigilante that Auggie should die, Peacemaker’s sociopathic sidekick broke into the jail and confronted the man and his cohorts which just made matters much worse for everyone.

Something tells us Episode 5 will explore the repercussions of these events while digging deeper into Peacemaker’s unresolved trauma and the unfolding butterfly mystery unfolding at the show’s center. Adebayo found a lead that could bring the team closer to defeating this alien threat. But there’s one big hiccup: It seems Murn, Project: Butterfly’s no-nonsense leader, has one of these alien parasites living up in his brain. What the what?! Something tells us things are about to get much more complicated — and way weirder.
