It's finally time to watch Peacemaker episode 4 online! Yes, fans of the John Cena-led series, we're only getting one (not three) episodes this week.

Peacemaker episode 4 release date and time:

Date: Peacemaker episodes 4 debuted today (Thursday, Jan. 20).
Time: 3 a.m. ET
U.S.: Watch on HBO Max
Canada: Watch on Crave

Peacemaker, one of the more exciting new shows of January 2022, arrived to smash expectations with its three premiere episodes last week. In the first episode alone, Peacemaker got out of the hospital, got recruited to do more of Amanda Waller's dirtiest work, had a very chaotic hookup that got hairier when she pulled a giant knife on him, reunited with his dad who can't stand him and met his new coworkers who don't get along at all. 

Before long, we learned that Christopher Smith's new assignment (Project Butterfly) is just as supernatural as his last (Project Starfish). And we learned a little about what makes some of his new colleagues twitch.

I wish I was watching episode 4 right now, though, we start to wonder when the hood will be ripped off Auggie Smith, who seems to be a white power villain from DC's old days. And since we know Adebayo is Waller's daughter, we know that the gang should be suspicious of her true endgame — and how naive she actually is. 

And before we get the details of where and how to watch Peacemaker episode 4, let's watch its amazing opening credits again:
