The Pentaverate Recap, Review and Ending Explained – The Pentaverate is a comedy sitcom starring Mike Myers as Ken Scarborough, a journalist on a mission to expose a fictional secret organisation of five people who rule the entire globe. Except for Hobart Clark, Myers plays every member of the Pentaverate. The series is now available to watch on Netflix.
Mike Myers, the creator and star of Netflix’s ‘The Pentaverate,’ expands on an old, seemingly insignificant scene from his 1993 comedy ‘So I Married an Axe Murderer.’ Stuart MacKenzie, Charlie’s Scottish conspiracy theorist father (both played by Mike Myers), goes on an extended diatribe about the Pentaverate, a hidden society of the world’s five wealthiest men.
They govern the globe and convene three times a year in the Meadows, a hidden estate in Colorado. ‘So I Married an Axe Murderer‘ received poor reviews from reviewers and failed at the movie office, despite the fact that Myers had just come off the tremendous success of ‘Wayne’s World,’ which had been released a year before. The film, on the other hand, has now become a cult classic.
‘The Pentaverate,’ in which Myers returns to the screen as a lead actor about 30 years later, is as weird and fantastic as any of Myers’ best works. Here’s all you need to know about the show’s conclusion and read The Pentaverate Recap below.
Not all conspiracy theories are fake … just most of them.

The Pentaverate (2022) Series Recap
The titular group is a secret society made up of five initially white males. Lord Lordington, a British aristocrat and the Pentaverate’s highest-ranking member; Bruce Baldwin, a former Australian media mogul; Shep Gordon, a former manager of some of the world’s most famous rockstars; Mishu Ivanov, a former member of Putin’s oligarchy; and Jason Eccleston, a tech guru who invented the group’s supercomputer the Mentor.
Eccleston, on the other hand, dies mysteriously, and nuclear physicist Dr. Hobart Clark (Keegan-Michael Key) is hired to address the climatic catastrophe. But he, too, perishes. On Baldwin’s advice, the Pentaverate recruits Skip Cho, a casino billionaire.
All five original members of The Pentaverate, as well as Ken Scarborough, are played by Myers in the series. The latter is a seasoned Canadian journalist who has spent his entire career with a local news station in Toronto.
After conspiracy-theorist Anthony Lansdowne informs him about The Pentaverate and its headquarters in New York, he heads to New York with youthful colleague Reilly Clayton and conspiracy theorist Anthony Lansdowne.
The evil plan of certain members of the Pentaverate is revealed in the series finale. Scarborough learns that he must accept his fate in order to save the planet. The Demetrius Protocols are enacted by the good members of the Pentaverate as a last-ditch effort to protect humanity.
Who Killed Jason Eccleston, Dr. Hobart Clark, and the Maester of Dubrovnik in the Pentaverate Ending?
Mentor was designed by Eccleston, as previously stated. Clark was recruited shortly after his death, and the Maester of Dubrovnik (Jennifer Saunders) was sent to look into the situation. When Clark was killed, he was on the verge of addressing climate change, while the Maester of Dubrovnik was near to figuring out who killed Eccleston and subsequently Clark.
Baldwin and Cho are revealed to be the series’ evil characters in episode 4, which comes as no surprise. After all, one practically generated deception, while the other profited from an addiction.
To the world beyond, the members of the Pentaverate are all dead. Baldwin resented the organisation after being forced to join it. In the actual world, he already had a lot of power and influence. He was the kingmaker, with the power of the media at his disposal. When he joined the Pentaverate, though, he had to appear to be a good guy.
And he gave it his all for a time. He aided the Pentaverate in overcoming the Y2K bug’s repercussions. When the internet was introduced, he warned his colleagues that it would be used by evil people in the same manner that tabloids had been used by him.
After sifting through all of the world’s knowledge, Eccleston built Mentor to determine the most widely accepted version of the truth. Unfortunately, the truth is ignored by the rest of the world. As a result, Baldwin and Cho have chosen to sell the Mentor, or the wisdom contained within it, to the highest bidder.
Each of the Pentaverate’s five members possesses a key. A sixth key, known as the parce clavem, is held by the Maester’s sister, the Saester of Dubrovnik, until Scarborough arrives there and takes it. Each key, with the exception of the parce clavem, is imbued with the DNA of the Pentaverate member to whom it belongs.
To sell Mentor, Baldwin requires at least three keys to gain possession of the Pentaverate. Cho was given the second key after he killed Eccleston and Clark. Scarborough ended up bonding with the parce clavem, which was supposed to be his third key.
What Exactly are the Meadows?
After discovering the true source of the Black Plague in 1347, five erudite men founded the Pentaverate since their findings contradicted church teaching. The Meadows is an annual meeting of the Pentaverate and world leaders held in Switzerland. The Pentaverate celebrates their victory at the Meadows and announces the next subject they will address. In addition, there is an orgy.
Baldwin and Cho try to sell Mentor to the highest bidder in the season finale. However, the majority of world leaders depart. Putin wins the election, but Baldwin’s scheme is foiled. Anthony Lansdowne grabs him and drags him down through the “moon door,” a hole in the Meadows venue’s floor in the mountains.
Demetrius Protocols: What Are They? What Is Septaverate and What Does It Mean?
If the Pentaverate falls into the wrong hands, the Demetrius Protocols are designed to be a last desperate effort to save the planet. Lord Lordington, Mishu Ivanov, and Shep Gordon utilise their cyanide pill — the same one they were given at their initiation ceremony — to commit themselves, just as Baldwin and Cho did.
The Septaverate, a new and more inclusive secret society dedicated to the welfare of the world, rises from the ashes of the Pentaverate. It has seven members, with Patty Davis (Debi Mazar, who co-starred with Myers in ‘So I Married an Axe Murderer’) as its head. Patty was the Pentaverate’s executive assistant. She was practically in charge of the organisation. No one is more qualified to lead the new company than she is.
What happened to Bruce Baldwin and Ken Scarborough?
Ken Scarborough discovers his new fate. He learns that the Pentaverate dispatched Reilly to track down Scarborough and persuade him to join the Liechtenstein Guard, the Pentaverate’s security force. Reilly didn’t understand the importance of the top-secret operation at first, but as she got to know Scarborough, she understood how nice he was.
Mentor’s existing human soul is replaced by Scarborough, who transforms it into its greatest version: Kentor. Reilly is now a member of the Septaverate, and Kentor is the organization’s supercomputer, according to one of the final scenes.
Meanwhile, Baldwin has recovered from his hundreds-of-foot fall and has undergone a Face/Off procedure. He now resembles Rob Lowe. If you’re familiar with the ‘Face/Off’ plot, you’ll recognise that this indicates Rob Lowe is somewhere in ‘The Pentaverate‘ wearing the Bruce Baldwin mask.
The Pentaverate must never be exposed.

Netflix ‘The Pentaverate’ Comedy Series Review
My great auntie’s definition of a good novel – and presumably that of many, if not all, great aunties – was “one that takes you out of yourself.” It’s all I want these days from any of my entertainment sources. Those who share this sentiment will swarm The Pentaverate like ravenous wolves (Netflix). Mike Myers has been specialising in accomplished idiocy since the early 1990s, with shows like Saturday Night Live, Wayne’s World, Austin Powers, the Shrek franchise, and various other efforts.
The Pentaverate, like Austin Powers, features Myers playing several roles, so many, in fact, that until I indicate otherwise, you can assume he plays all of the characters named below. This includes the majority of the Pentaverate, which is beneficent, unlike other secret societies. (“They’re friendly!” they exclaim.) Every episode begins with a voiceover from Jeremy Irons, who is clearly having a blast in full Jeremy Irons mode.)
It was formed in 1347 by five intelligent men who were labelled heretics after discovering that the epidemic was caused by rat fleas rather than divine intent. Since then, it has been quietly working for the greater welfare of humanity. Members include Darwin, Leonardo da Vinci, Nelson Mandela, and the Quaker Oats guy.
Donald Rumsfeld was an unsuccessful presidential candidate. Billie Eilish will become a member in the year 2047. Beyoncé Knowles is a Pentaverate double agent working for the Illuminati.
Following the unexpected and unexplained death of Pentaverate member Eccleston, the organisation persuades Hobart Clark (Keegan-Michael Key) to assist them in addressing the climate catastrophe. Irons is guided through the initiation by Rob Lowe, who is having as much fun as Irons.
When Ken Scarborough, a mild-mannered Canadian journalist, is given one last chance to save his job by bringing back a hard-hitting story, he and his feisty assistant Reilly (Lydia West) begin investigating the existence of the rumoured society by travelling to New York, getting Scarborough into the society’s Liechtenstein Guard (you need a key fob and a circumcised penis), and becoming caught up in the attempts to destroy the Pent.
However, the plot is unimportant. It’s the thread through which Myers can thread his beads, including his turn as ranting Maga-loon Rex Smith, who uses his radio show, Truth Battle, to nonsensically mangle buzzwords in his breathless diatribes against liberals “who dance naked, giving each other lizardman courtesy reacharounds as a sacrifice to the meme-momo.”
Throughout Ken and Reilly’s road trip, there are numerous jokes about Big Dick’s Halfway Inn and its partner, Big Dick’s Old Log Cabin, located further down the highway (in Nuts Deep). Jennifer Saunders appears as the Maester of Dubrovnik, who examines Eccleston’s death and discovers he was poisoned by a toxin known as donnett, which causes the victim’s brown eyes to turn blue. There’s one for all the Crystal Gayle fans out there.
We don’t think The Pentaverate will grow any funny as the season progresses. And we believe that the longer we watch, the more horribly unfunny most of the humour will become.
