We discuss predictions for the Apple TV+ series Shantaram season 1, episode 6, and detail the release date, time, and where to watch online.
Shantaram season 1, episode 5 continues the Indian saga, which is based on the life of novelist Gregory David Roberts. Lin (played by Charlie Hunnam) has been presented as the savior of the slums over the last few episodes now and here he gets a chance to reap the rewards. The villagers present him with food offerings and Abdullah gifts him a new motorbike too. With all eyes on Lin, the fugitive starts to lose track of his own secrets and seems to forget he’s actually on the run. Although a journalist looks set to ruin Lin’s good fortune. As always the show struggles to ground Lin’s hero complex and it all starts to become rather repetitive. Here’s what happened in episode five of Shantaram:
- Friends celebrate Lin’s accomplishments, although he argues with a very jealous Maurizio. Lisa thanks Lin for all his done, which makes Modena jealous too.
- Kavita, the journalist, decides to write a story about Lin, the slum doctor and pitches the idea. When she asks Lin about the article, he becomes rather defensive though and destroys the photographs that she has taken of him.
- Khader continues to try and win over Minister Pandey, who has sided with Walid already.
- The citizens of the slum offer Lin their food and Abdullah buys him a brand new bike. All these gifts are a thank you for Lin’s hard work and loyalty.
- Lin and Abdullah are confronted by Rafiq and his men. Lin tries to ease the tension, but Rafiq is now enemies with Lin as well. He spits at him and tells him to leave Bombay.
- Lin is offered money by Qasim for medical supplies. He goes to Khader and asks to pay his own way, instead of accepting handouts from the gangster anymore. Khader is happy to oblige and adds that they can still be friends.
- Lin meets with Karla and confesses to her, revealing all his darkest secrets. Karla starts to open up a little more herself and admits that she feels numb inside after her father committed suicide. They kiss, but Karla stops things from going further.
- Kavita investigates Lin after their altercation, confused why he would not want his picture taken. She finds his passport details and continues to look into the mysterious man. She discovers that the real Lindsay Ford died six years ago. Why does he use a dead man’s passport?

Where to watch online
Viewers worldwide can catch Shantaram season 1, episode 6, on Apple TV+ on the date mentioned above.
- Kavita’s digging will take her down a rabbit hole of discovery. She will soon uncover the truth about Lin and notify the authorities. The police will be searching for Lin anyway and there has to be a reward out on him. Kavita will more than likely see his mug shot and join the dots together.
- Lin and Karla will continue to play hot and cold with their love for one another. I’m guessing Karla can’t be involved with Lin because of her ties to Khader, but it still seems a little vague as to why that would be an issue. Lin will continue to try and win her over.
- The slum doctor has paid off his debts to Khader, but I’m sure he’ll find himself involved in that criminal underworld once again. Khader may ask for his assistance once more, pressuring him to sin again. This in itself may tip off the authorities or Khader may hand him in for his own gains.
