What To Expect From It?

The Equalizer Season 5 will pick from where the fourth season ended. We see Dante leaving for Los Angeles despite him having feelings for Robyn. Even though his sons and ailing father are in New York he chooses to get that new job.

This is because Dante doesn’t want to sit at a desk in his life. Robyn loves him but still convinces him to go because she doesn’t want to be seen as a selfish person. While all this was hard to witness, we can hope The Equalizer Season 5 to sort this storyline.

Maybe Dante will make a comeback for some reason. Or maybe Robyn will pay him a visit. Meanwhile, Mel was almost killed. So she will be taking a break from work to get healed from all the trauma. Robyn’s relationship with her daughter Delilah can be also explored further in the next season. There should be more episodes than last season (because of the Hollywood strike).
