The Boys Are Back in Town

(Probably Time To Flee)


A mixed bag over the years, the fifth episode has offered a variety of options ranging from funny to sentimental to dramatic. Usually, episode five doesn’t forget to take a nod to the main plot with a teaser of information or a hint at something that will be relevant later in the season – but more often than not, it’s a pause in a serious and intense flow of events to catch our breath and be with the boys for some fun before it’s back to the action and drama.

It’s not hard to choose my favourite among these episode fives; that honour goes to “Fan Fiction” - but taking that out of the equation, which is your favourite? I’d have to go back to season four and the hilarious “Monster Movie” myself. Who has been the best episode five villain over the years? If there is one episode you would change the outcome to – which would it be and why?

Reflect, reminisce and share below!
