**Warning – Spoilers ahead**

Amazon Prime’s epic new fantasy, The Wheel of Time, is just the right dose of escapism this Christmas and we explore the release date and plot of episode 5 up ahead. 

Compared to George R. R. Martin’s medieval fantasy series, Game of Thrones, The Wheel of Time is expected to bridge the medieval fantasy gap until House of the Dragon arrives next year.

The Wheel of Time follows Rosamund Pike’s wizard, Moiraine, who journeys across the lands in order to pinpoint who the reincarnation of the “Dragon” is and oversee their destiny to navigate the fate of the world.

What will episode 5 be about?

During the stretch of episode 5, we are expecting to see Egwene and Perrin continue to learn about the harmonious ways as they journey with the Tinkers – and probably another appearance from the following wolves.

Logain’s loss of power will likely be explored more as Nynaeve and the Aes Sedai come to terms with her new powers.

The episode title, ‘Blood Calls Blood,’ suggests that either a massacre is on the horizon, or an investigation into a blood connection teased within the group.
