Little Fires Everywhere Episode 5 Spoilers
The fifth episode of ‘Little Fires Everywhere’ is titled ‘Duo.’ The title could mean several things: Mia and Bebe’s friendship and partnership in fighting for the latter’s baby or Mia and Elena’s friends-turned-rivals dynamic.
The fourth episode sees Mia and Bebe begin the fight to get custody for the latter’s baby by publicizing the case. Hence, we might get to see the trial start in the fifth episode. It is entirely possible that the trial goes on for several (or even all the remaining) episodes.
Apart from that, Pearl might finally realize that taking anything with Trip forward might be a terrible idea. She is anyways depicted to be attracted to him mostly physically. However, it remains to be seen whether Trip and Pearl decide to actually tell Moody that they sort of had sex.
Other than that, the ending of the fourth episode proves to be quite intriguing. Mia’s art piece alludes to the nomadic artist having some other intentions. Does she have some personal enmity with Elena that has not been shown so far?
