New World: What happens in Episode 5 & Episode 6?
As per the last episodes, we saw someone did win the meteorite task but AI Holo did not explicitly reveal the name. Instead, our islanders were put on the task of getting rich through the treacherous real estate business. Episode 5 of New World begins on Day 3, where we find our celebrities visiting their properties. We see Heechul find a magical pearl by his property and Bo-ah is now the owner of the supermarket. Meanwhile, Na-rae is really worked up about her properties and their prices as she begins to get real (panic) in the game. By the end of the fourth day, the celebrities visit the bank where they get to evaluate their success.
The audience also gets to know who delivered the meteorite making that person receive the designated amount of nyangs in their account. In episode 4 we discover the staff members, who also happen to be the resident of New World gone as everything from the celebs regular Bistro to the Bank is closed, leaving only AI Holo behind. Later, even AI Holo loses its battery declaring the New World Holiday and marking a strange incident of the island’s surveillance cameras failure due to an unknown error, leaving the participants truly isolated and stranded on the island.
The new task offered to our celebrities at hand is to reset the CCTV networks, to keep their bank accounts safe. If they are not reset on time, one of the three poorest members might just get their account switched. Well, good for Heechul, if not anyone else, right? Divided into two teams, the contestants set out to finish the task at hand. By the end of the CCTV camera restoration race, there are surprising winners as well as losers revealed, that we never saw coming.
