In Episode 4, we saw Frieren seek out her quest, to speak to Himmel the hero from beyond the grave in Aureole.

RECAP: Frieren Episode 1 to 4 Spoilers and What to Expect in Episode 5

Given that the Frieren premiere is essentially a prologue introducing us to its titular elven protagonist, we’ll see the story starting to go places with the English sub release of Episode 5. To get to Aureole, they must reach Ende, the site of the Demon King’s castle.

In Episode 5, we’ll likely see adaptations of Chapter 9 and beyond. This includes a wholesome flashback for Fern to when she was watching over Heiter. It’s now close to 3 decades since Himmel the hero died, and Frieren and Fern will soon encounter their next fantastical phenomenon: Einsam, who uses the illusions of lost loved ones to draw in their prey.

Even though they root out and destroy the cruel illusions conjured up to represent Heiter and Himmel, Frieren reminds Fern that they can speak with Heiter too, once they reach Aureole.
