The Devil’s Plan Episodes 5 Review: Discussion
The mind games continue with this week’s new episodes, but with The Devil’s Plan Episode 5 we also start to see more emotional drama emerge out of the game arena, which eventually consumes the ongoing game series and starts affecting the players for worse. Certain teams push a very specific type of narrative against the other, and this may start impacting your loyalty to some of these contestants as well.
The initial episodes, i.e. Episode 1-4, may have had you rooting for the “underdogs”, but the new set of entries in the season make you further question the true concept of what it is to be an underdog, and in whom vests the power to declare one as such. A lot of betrayals unfold and the unreliability of each contestant starts rising to the top. In the race to solidify new alliances, everyone goes all out and is keen to destroy and bring each other down.
The people you thought were underdogs, eventually start peddling a propaganda of their own to turn things in their favour while fighting it out against the leading contestants who’re in possession of the most number of Pieces in their pockets. However, that fact alone about their leading stances can’t turn them into villains, but the other side consolidates their image like so, in turn manipulating other contestants and their thoughts about them along the way too. Soon enough, the spiteful sting of these actions will start getting to you as well, testifying for how a certain party of members has been pushing too hard to vilify the other party. And even if it’s all just part of the “game”, it starts feeling unfair.
