The Gold Season 1 Episode 5 Preview: Release Date, Time & Where To Watch

The Gold Season 1 Episode 5

The Gold is a drama from BBC based on the real-life heist that shocked the UK back in November of 1983. Six masked men broke into the Brink’s-Mat security depot near London’s Heathrow Airport and inadvertently stumbled across gold bullion worth £26m. This was a huge stroke of luck and the coincidence resulted in the world’s biggest heist in value terms back then. Dominic Cooper, Hugh Bonneville, Charlotte Spencer, and Sean Harris are some of the big names from the large ensemble cast.

The Gold was originally released back in February of this year with all the episodes still available to stream on the network’s digital streaming platform. However, that optionality is only with our readers in the UK. The Gold made its international debut on Paramount’s digital streaming platform in September. 

The show has moved strongly over the last two weeks. The story has taken good strides and we have reached the point where the chain to move the Brink’s-Mat gold is about to be cracked. 

Here is everything you need to know about The Gold Season 1 Episode 5, including its release date, time, and where you can watch this.

Where Can I Watch The Gold?

The Gold will be exclusively available to stream on Paramount+ and watch with the cable network on Paramount. As revealed above, The Gold’s international release comes months after its debut in the UK on BBC. As of now, there isn’t much information about the order of release of episodes on Paramount’s different platforms. But expect the release to be simultaneous as part of the group’s efforts to popularize its streaming platform. 

The Gold Season 1 Episode 5 Release Date

The Gold Season 1 Episode 5 will be released on Sunday, October 8, at 9 pm ET/PT. Expect the runtime to be roughly 51 minutes or even more. After the doubleheader on its first viewing, the show now reverts to a weekly release schedule for most territories. The new episode of The Gold is titled “The Boy You Were.”

The episode will be available to stream on Paramount+ with subtitles. Quite interestingly, Paramount has decided that for its viewers outside the US, the entire show will be made available to stream in one go. However, the US will stick to a weekly release after the opening doubleheader. 

How Many Episodes Will The Gold Have?

The Gold’s Season 1 will run for a total of 6 episodes. So, after episode 5, we will have another episode to go that will follow a weekly release schedule, subject to any changes Paramount+ might make in between. We do not expect there to be any major scheduling interruptions. 

What happened in Episode 4?

Episode 4 started on a sombre note with the task force grieving for Fordham’s death. Boyce announces that they must do everything to convict Noye of murder and also dig up his vast stretches of land to find the Brink’s-Mat gold. Edwyn is called back by Gordon to continue their efforts to move the money. The former understands the police are getting closer and that they must try to maintain a distance from the operation.

Gordon, though, has other ideas. His loyalty and serious-mindedness are infallible. They make a delivery of money in Liechtenstein, where Gordon shows his nerves. Palmer finds himself in a fix when he reads the papers. Marnie is disturbed by this publicity and the fact that the police are after him. When he isn’t able to get a handle on the situation, Marnie leaves with the kids for home, beseeching Palmer to come back soon.

Jennings and Brightwell find a defining clue to track down bank notes with a particular serial number for identification. Noye’s lawyers cleverly turn the table and win the case, making Boyce furious since the police do not have enough to hold him in prison for the charge of conspiracy. They must work extra hard now to find anything to pin on Noye, as he threatens to go scot-free for his crimes.
