Contains spoilers for 'Peacemaker' Episode 5
Episode 5 of ‘Peacemaker’ sees the anti-hero and his dysfunctional band of good guys learn more about the butterflies. On Murn's, the team heads to a factory to get to the bottom of the butterflies’ origin only to find out that it's actually a hive breeding with butterflies. The episode ends with the future of one of the key characters in doubt.
Titled ‘Monkey Dory,’ opens with Peacemaker recovering from his hangover and trying to snap out of it. Adebayo argues with her wife before heading to work and receives a text from Waller to plant a diary at Peacemaker's residence. In the meantime, Murn explains the butterflies to the team, and to the audience (four episodes of suspense that was finally broken). He explains that Glan Tai was actually a base to produce the amber liquid that helps the survive. The peacemaker's X-ray vision shows that it was a butterfly paradise as he and Adebayo go on a killfest.
So what happened to Adebayo? Is she dead?
Not at the moment. Following the intense mission and eliminating the butterfly-controlled workers, the team takes on a gorilla only for John Economos to do a Patrick Bateman and save the day with a chainsaw. However, in the final minutes of the episode, Adebayo finds out that Murn is a butterfly himself, but is attacked before she could escape. He tackles her and the episode draws to a close.
At present, it looks like she is one of the good guys to bite the dust. Murn's secret could cause chaos within the team and that would mean killing Adebayo if he has to keep it under wraps. However, working for Waller would mean a certain death should she realize that Murn killed Adebayo. Plus, Murn might have had the butterfly in him but has proved to be a good guy. This is surely debatable. But whatever his intentions are, things don't look good for Adebayo.
'Peacemaker' Episode 5 is available for streaming on HBO Max.
