Gomorrah, season 5, review: Roberto Saviano’s Mafia epic goes out in style

He knows, too, when to keep a low profile and, having just wiped out several mortal enemies, is currently hiding in a bunker, separated from wife Azzurra and son Pietro. He is, however, still at work attempting to eliminate the rival Levante family. Alas, plans to execute the Levantes at a funeral in Rome go amiss when Genny’s goons are hoodwinked into walking into a police ambush, leaving the tantalising question of who in their ranks tipped off the Levantes about their hit job.

Genny must also address tensions with another godfather, Don Aniello Pastore (Nello Mascia) and his creepy nephew, ‘O Diplomato (Andrea Di Maria). Aniello is an old-school mobster, whose grand mansion could not be more different from the semi-collapsed high-rise Genny calls home.

With the Savastanos regarded as in retreat, rivalry with Pastore spills over into a mass firefight in the courtyard of a flat complex. At which point it feels Gomorrah may be about to pivot into an Eighties action movie (it would not come as a shock were Arnold Schwarzenegger to sprint into the frame delivering pithy one-liners). There is one last surprise, however. Aniello, pleading for his life, reveals to Genny that an old enemy he thought dead is still alive and safely ensconced overseas. 

This is a proper twist that dangles the possibility of the return of a major character from previous seasons. You can almost picture Ed Sheeran dropping his guitar in disbelief. And after that ferocious start, the next seven episodes are piled high with smoking corpses and murderous conspiracies run amok. It proves that nobody does operatically over-the-top entertainment quite like the Italians. And that Gomorrah’s farewell series is a long goodbye worth sticking with until the very last drop of blood is spilled.
