The Quintessential Quintuplets Season 2 Episode 5 Spoilers

In episode 4, Ichika, Itsuki, and Futaro try to develop a plan to get Yotsuba out of the track team. After Ichika leaves to get her remaining two siblings, Futaro convinces Itsuki to approach the team as Yotsuba and tell them that she will not continue to be part of it because of the impending exam, while he distracts the real Yotsuba. The plan fails as the team sees through the ruse. However, Nino arrives with her hair cut short and, pretending to be Yotsuba, forces the team leader to accept that Yotsuba is quitting the team. Nino and Itsuki reconcile.

All sisters go back home and begin preparing for the exam earnestly. Yotsuba reveals that she spoke with the track team and told them that she would help them prepare for the meet and then quit. Futaro suggests that the siblings should use crib sheets as a last resort. This surprises the siblings as they never thought that Futaro would suggest something like this.

The exam doesn’t go particularly well for any of the siblings. While they do their best and definitely show signs of improvement, it’s clearly not enough. As they wait for Futaro on the tutoring day, they find out from Ebata, their father’s secretary, that Futaro has quit his job, and Ebata will be teaching them from now on. He also tells them that their father has forbidden Futaro from ever entering their home. They discover that the crib sheets were meant to encourage them to acquire marks in the right way.

They find Futaro working at a cake shop and asks him to deliver a cake to their home. On their way, Futaro falls into the lake, and all sisters jump into the water to rescue him, including Nino, who doesn’t know how to swim. Futaro subsequently pulls Nino to the shore. The episode ends with Futaro realizing that the siblings have moved into a new home. In episode 5, we might find out how the siblings are faring in their new residence.
