The end of Episode 5, titled “The Bentley Lament,” left the fate of one of the cicadas in the air. Is one really dead or did the other fail in her mission?
SoYun managed to get out of North Korea and into China to work on the next stage of her mission. What she didn’t realize was that she was meeting someone with the mission to kill her. After a fight broke out, Nira grabbed her gun and shot SoYun in the gut.

Considering SoYun was in the middle of nowhere, it would be easy to assume that she’d die. After all, there’s no help and walking with that bullet wound won’t be easy. However, if you’ve watched American Horror Story, then you know that sometimes it’s possible. Okay, maybe not in real life, but it is possible in the world of TV.
This is also the world of Jason Bourne. Look at everything he was able to survive. The cicadas are more like machines than anything else. They are highly trained soldiers and capable of surviving to the bring of death. It won’t be surprising to hear that SoYun will likely survive.
If you’re not sure, then you just have to look at the promo for the next episode. Treadstone Episode 6 will see her make it to a farm. She’s injured, but it looks like she has her wits about her enough to get help.
This isn’t a cicada we’ve seen the last of. There’s still more to come for her, and someone has a new mission for her.
