Money Heist Season 5 Part 2 review: The makers are to blame if you were misled by the trailers and pre-release marketing for La Casa De Papel or Money Heist. The fifth and last instalment of the Spanish crime thriller does not have any more fatalities or compromises. Still, it does contain plenty of action, twists, tears, and laughter.
Warning: Spoilers ahead!
It was time for the last elements in Part 2 after Part 1’s dynamic graph was taken to its logical conclusion. The group was devastated by Tokyo’s death, but it didn’t last long. As a compliment to Tokyo and Nairobi, they resumed their efforts to remove the gold from the Bank of Spain. Alicia Sierra’s escape from the Professor’s den had left a jumble that needed to be cleaned up, so the Professor gathered his pieces as well. First things first: Colonel Tamayo appears to be lost. However, he’s gotten more involved this time around.
Now that he’s back, Palermo only has himself to blame for his failure to lead as expected. We’re transported back to the days when he and Berlin would have a party whenever they overcame a minor obstacle in the course of plotting an almost impossible robbery. When Tokyo was “lived multiple lives” in Part 1, Sergio and Andres lost their father in Part 2.
We knew that the series would come to a close in Part 2. Therefore it was expected that several loose ends would be tied up. A solution is found between Denver, Stockholm, and Manila. The Professor’s feud with Alicia Sierra is no exception. While shackled and dangling, the Professor makes a proposal to Raquel, which feels familiar. The tragedy of Berlin, Benjamin’s leadership in The Professor’s absence, and Arteche’s heroics were some of the more memorable moments. Some long-held fan beliefs are coming to fruition, while others are completely shocked. More of Tatiana, Rafael, and Sagasta were what I was hoping for. However, the filmmakers did not want to spend too much time on them and instead focused on the most crucial plot points that their characters had to provide.
And just as the audience was about to give up on the gang’s chances of survival, the show delivered a slew of shocking surprises. He enters the bank in a way we weren’t expecting. When the gang sings “Bella Ciao” one more time, we get good chuckles, ‘Pamplona,’ and happy tears.
The most eye-catching aspect of the storey is that the gold grains have finally made it to the stormwater tank. A BTS video showed Ursula Corbero saying she wanted to go back in time and “party” with her fellow robbers, and she did just that. She even convinced the Professor to join her in a jig.
Once again, the latest episodes of Money Heist season 5 will have you riveted to the screen. We’ve become accustomed to the show’s heart-pounding sequences and nail-biting suspense. This time around, it’s in the same tone as before.
Since when has it been acceptable to support villains and despise heroes? A tremendous smile spread across our faces when the party made it out of the dungeon with the money in their hands.
This season wasn’t meant to be judged on its own merits by the audience. The writers, like us, had a clear understanding of what they were supposed to do: connect the open ends and bring the storey to a close without going over the top. It takes all five seasons to uncover the answers to what they did and why they did it. In this case, all we needed to do was find a show that made us laugh, shed a few tears, and made us smile. That was done by Money Heist. And we’re smiling, but we’re trying to process the fact that one of Netflix’s most popular shows has come to an end.
