Warning: this story contains spoilers for Thursday's Peacemaker, "Chapter 4: The Choad Less Traveled." Series creator James Gunn's official Peacemaker playlist is updated to include the tracklist from "Chapter 4," featuring songs from Pretty Boy Floyd, Faster Pussycat, and more. As an alien invasion seemingly looms, Christopher Smith (John Cena) learns black-ops team Project Butterfly framed his father, racist tinkerer Auggie Smith (Robert Patrick), for Peacemaker's crimes in "Chapter 2." While Leota Adebayo (Danielle Brooks) manipulates Vigilante (Freddie Stroma) into the attempted assassination of Auggie, a.k.a. the supervillain White Dragon, Smith mourns the death of his brother — and the murder of Rick Flag (The Suicide Squad's Joel Kinnaman) — as he trips through memories of growing up in a house of pain.
As Vigilante laments losing part of his pinky toe during a mission to assassinate Butterfly and U.S. Senator Royland Goff (Antonio Cupo), "Beat the Bullet" by Vain plays inside the getaway van piloted by John Economos (Steve Agee). Later, when Vigilante drives "best friend" Smith to his father's house, "I Wanna Be With You" by Pretty Boy Floyd plays on the radio.
"Jawbreaker" by The Cruel Intentions is the soundtrack to Vigilante's prison stroll, while the aptly-titled "House of Pain" by Faster Pussycat plays over Smith's sad and soulful dance fueled by booze and weed. Also appropriate is Vains of Jenna's "Enemy In Me," which plays at the end of the episode when — spoiler warning — it's revealed field leader Clemson Murn (Chukwudi Iwuji) is a Butterfly under the control of the butterfly-like alien bugs crawling into human brains across the globe.
