What are Spoilers of Kingdom Season 3 Episode 5?
Season 3 of Kingdom is covering one of the best war arcs if not the best in the history of manga. Since it is following the manga and it’s pretty far ahead of anime, we can list down spoilers from it. Below are spoilers for Kingdom season 3 episode 5.
The Siege Fails
After deploying one siege tower over Kankoku Pass, the soldiers from the Wei army bring in another tower. This time they attach it to the tower where Kanki is present. He doesn’t flinch at the sight of seeing another tower. Kanki brings out barrels of oil and pours them over the tower. He then lights an arrow and shoots on the tower, setting everyone over it on fire.
Large Scale Battle
Mobou and Tou’s army prepare to combat against Chu’s army. Mouteen explains his father’s plan to his subordinate. We see a flashback where he asks about the plan for the battle from his father. He tells him about it and we get back to the present situation.
Quick Recap of Kingdom Season 3 Episode 5
Since the previous episode aired a year ago, you may not remember what happened in it. Here is a quick recap to refresh your memories.
A Little Sparke
The commander of Zhao traps general Hyo’s army and puts him in a deadly situation. Not knowing what to do, Hyo’s men keep getting sliced left and right. However, a little spark is created when Shin with his unit creates an opportunity. He marches opposite the flow of the battle and makes an opening for Hyo and his men to attack.
The commander of Wei brings out a siege tower, however, it doesn’t match up with the height of the Kankoku Pass. To everyone’s surprise, there is a secret element to the tower. It contains a mechanism that allows it to reach the top of the Pass. With the tower connected, the soldiers of Wei start climbing and initiate the siege.
