(is there any reason at all they are pretending those are two seperate episodes at this point?)
They're likely being released in five minute segments in order to optimize the number of viewers, since statistics show that the shorter video content is, the greater the percentage of viewers that will finish it. Releasing two five minute parts rather than one ten minute part also doubles the number of advertisements a viewer must watch (and the corresponding advertising revenue).
