    Yeah, I do hope they give us a little more background on that. Like, how did this dumb old racist build or acquire something like that? Aside from the butterflies, this show feels pretty grounded in that Kick-Ass kinda way (like, this is what would really happen if a couple of insane idiots put on costumes and tried to fight crime) but that room is so WTF.

    He's definitely dumb because he's racist but by all the tech he builds Peacemaker and I would assume used to build for himself he does seem rather intelligent unfortunately, atleast when it comes to building.

    Yeah that’s true. But building an inter-dimensional portal requires a bit more explanation than just being a gear head. I hope we get more insight into that. Hopefully the nonchalant way Peacemaker explains it is just due to his dumb nature of never thinking too hard about things.

    So you guys think Checkmate will appear in this? Peacemaker was part of that team in the past. I hope they show up simply because I know Gunn’s costume designers would do some sick version of the Knight suits.

    I know this is out there but what if the old man is Bat-Mite. It would be in Gunns wheelhouse to do something like that lol.

    edit: I asked James on Twitter too.

    Are the butterflies from the comics or is that something original from the show? Just curious if it could point to some clues on who the “big bad” could be in this show.

    Show original but they may be inspired by a comic group called The Reach. At least thats the current rumor.

    Episode 5 was awesome! The entire scene at the warehouse is probably my favorite scene from the series so far. Peacemaker and Economos going from hating each other to then bonding over their love of metal was sweet

    Speaking of, thanks to this show I discovered Dynazty. Their tune was playing during the end credits and they are f***ing aweosme! So kudos to Gunn and the music crew

    Being from Finland , and having seen Hanoi Rocks live several times, I really enjoyed this.

    The tease for that was fun in the earlier episode, but this was just great.

    This show just keeps getting better and better each week. I also just realized just how retro 80's/90's this show feels too which is also a reason I believe I'm really enjoying it at least so far.

    The violence is so in your face and over the top and I loved every minute of it, especially the chainsaw bit lol. It was also super satisfying for some reason seeing Peacemaker and dyed beard finally bonding.

    That song at the end of the episode was a banger, love it. Sometimes the show goes a little too far with things for me personally, but I've enjoyed it for the most part.

    I still have a feeling he’s doing a Secret Six series.

    Was pretty close that I did the same, but since I dont live in Finland it probably would just have been misunderstood, I did jump up from my seat and showed my GF all my Hanoi Rocks albums :D.

    He seems destined to do this one day yeah.

    For now i think a Ratcatcher spin off is most likely.

    Harley and Bloodsport i rule out...but would love to see both.
    That pretty much leaves you with Ratcatcher.

    Apart from the Hanoi Rocks content, I think the plant part "saved" the episode. Anything before that was putting me to sleep. Also that name list ran way too long AND he should've named rock/hair metal band members only.
