We can't wait to get off work and watch Peacemaker episode 5 on HBO Max because holy hell that ending last week was bonkers. Again, HBO Max is only giving us one episode, and we're curious how much will be revealed.

Peacemaker episode 5 release date and time:

Date: Peacemaker episode 5 debuted today (Jan. 27).
Time: 3 a.m. ET
U.S.: Watch on HBO Max
Canada: Watch on Crave

Peacemaker, one of our favorite new shows of January 2022 is continuing to impress by giving Vigilante a standout episode last week, as the series continues to let other people steal scenes from Peacemaker himself. Now out of jail, Vigilante's going to likely help Peacemaker and the Argus crew stop the Butterflies.

But, seriously, that mission doesn't even make sense now that we know Murn himself is actually a Butterfly. Are there good Butterflies and bad ones? What the hell is going on?

Oh, and we're curious when Vigilante and The White Dragon Auggie Smith will clash, because Vigilante already revealed he knows the weak points in the old racist's armor. 

And before we get the details of where and how to watch Peacemaker episode 5, let's watch its amazing opening credits again:
