Gangs Of London – Season 2 Episode 5 Recap & Review

The Sins Of A Father

Episode 5 in Gangs of London Season 2 begins with Elliot making an agreement with his father “Don’t let this destroy you.” This is a motto that he carries with him throughout the present when we are at the beginning of the day following the huge raid.

Elliot isn’t keeping his word and reveals the truth to his dad that they’re sought-after guys which is why they’ve been ordered to leave and take on the persona of a different character. Charlie (his father) decides to take a plane and go, putting the past behind their backs. Elliot isn’t convinced and heads back into the excitement after leaving his father on the plane for the moment. Kane warns him about what he’s doing. Kane warns him about the things he’s been doing, but Elliot does not listen.

Sean realizes that this battle isn’t over even though they’ve sent a signal that they’re at their weakest at the moment. Lale will be quick to point this out as Asif is weighing losing and is preparing to come to the back of his opponent.

Asif assigns Koba with chasing Sean Wallace, telling him the whole thing occurred on his watch. Asif blames his lapdog which doesn’t go over very well. As if Asif lost his concentration and that’s the reason why they were hit. Asif is also told that the Investors come to their decision. “Kill Sean Wallace or they’ll kill you.” This is the message they’ve relayed. With a smile that isn’t too big, Koba finished his drink and left.

Sean is back with Singer He sends him a warm greeting and congratulations to the man on his accomplishments. He also mentions the fact that Elliot has left the country this morning. They want to see Wallace be back at the top, however, there are bound to be some conditions, specifically that of a person who is taking the strings from the highest levels. It’s a small cost that they will pay to Sean who is in a state of confusion about his desire to return to power.

Luan arrives and warns him against going to Koba due to how brutal Luan is. Marian calls Shannon and tells her to leave and mentions the fact that Ed who is currently being tortured by having his teeth pulled out each time is in prison and therefore, Shannon and Danny need to escape.

Saba arrives to meet Sean and informs Sean that a meeting is set up with Koba within 30 minutes. It’s supposed to be just two of them and at a location that is public. There should be no weapons or hands at the table. If they don’t, there’s a good chance that it will be war. Sean realizes that this could be a trap, but decides to take it on, however. Sean also realizes that Saba has one-sided revenge for this matter, since the fact that he killed Basem. She admits that she’d love to murder him, but after entering the address, Koba heads out to meet with Sean.

Elliot appears back and is determined to locate Ed. He sneaks into the basement and finally finds the man, but unfortunately making lots of noise during the process. Luckily, he can bring Ed out to take on the guards. It also involves breaking Ed’s hand using the baseball bat to remove the cuff.

The hallway is where Elliot gets rid of the other guards using some quick slow-motion shots before guiding Ed out of the way. They drive off and, even though Ed is bloody and battered but he’s alive. Elliot takes the victim to Shannon’s house but, in the process, is able to lose his father, who was murdered at the airport.

Sean has a meeting with Koba at his regular location which is an arcade. Sean is the one who has picked this particular location to ensure that Koba is an unruly thumb. They have different opinions, but in the end, they’re both looking for the same thing: power. Sean says they’re not similar but is aware that Koba hasn’t left empty-handed. He’s discovered that Koba intends to ambush them, and then kill Sean completely.

It seems that Sean is here with an offer of his very own. Sean knows how to take away the Investors. Koba has the gangsters with the groups. What do you think? The idea is to unite. In doing this they could totally rule the city and even take it by the investors. It’s an interesting idea, but can Koba decide to go for it? The two shake off the idea and begin an entirely new order in the world.

Elliot appears at the home of Miss Kane to confront her over Charlie’s murder. He’s not content in the least, enraged And despite her efforts to convince herself of this, and claiming to be an additional cog in the machine, Elliot kills her outright.

The Episode Review

The huge saga of Koba with Sean Wallace could be an interesting play, however, the question remains determined whether this is an elaborate game played by Sean who is planning to take off Koba at the moment he is least likely to suspect that he is doing it, and then cross-checking Koba.

While this is happening, Elliot makes his choice and decides to aid Ed to do the right thing. However, this decision also cost him the life of his father who is killed in a shocking act that many might not have expected to happen.

While this season has seen the violence of the viscera, however, it’s not as intense as the first season. The show is still entertaining and there are some moments that stand out however, this sequel is without that “wow factor” to really bring it to life.
