Money Heist is almost over, with only the second half of season five left to go. The Spanish Netflix drama ended on a cliffhanger after the death of one of its key gang members. Now, as tensions rise within the group while they remain surrounded in the Bank of Spain, anything could happen in order to escape with their lives and the riches.
Will Palermo betray the gang and escape with the gold?
Palermo (played by Rodrigo de la Serna) was not exactly a team player in Money Heist.
He originally started working with the professor (Álvaro Morte) because of his 10-year friendship with Berlin (Pedro Alonso).
Palermo was in love with his best friend Berlin so when he was killed, he fell into a life of depression and alcoholism. This affected his judgement during the robbery of the Bank of Spain because he was volatile and caused tension within the group.
His actions also led to the death of Nairobi (Alba Flores), which shook everyone.
Palermo became an outsider to the gang and was responsible for persuading the bank’s head of security, Gandia (Jose Manuel Poga), to free himself.
This led to chaos and Nairobi being shot dead. While the rest of the robbers are not exactly friends with him, Palermo has been reintegrated back into the group.
A teaser clip from the remaining five episodes now suggests that Palermo is desperate to get his hands on the gold.
In the clip, Lisbon (Itziar Ituño) tells the group that the professor has disappeared and asks what they should do with the gold.
This upsets Palermo, who then tells everyone: “The gold is getting out.
“There’s no room for discussion, because if you let them, they’ll all pull out a weapon!”
Rio (Miguel Herrán) then explains that the police could be in the stormwater tank they were going to use to smuggle the gold.
Palermo gets even more enraged and puts a gun in Rio’s face. and when Manila (Belen Cuesta) agrees, he turns to face her with the weapon.
He goes on to explain, “The gold is worth nothing to us here.
“Do you understand that or not?”
Denver (Jaime Lorente) and Stockholm (Esther Acebo) also try to change his mind, but he maintains that the gold will go with them.
He says he wants to make sure they all get out alive, but is that really the case or is this just a ploy to get his hands on the precious metal himself?
Money Heist was cancelled by its creators last year after it was announced there would be a fifth series.
Season five, part one, was released earlier this month and ended with the death of Tokyo (Ursula Corbero).
Now, with only a handful of episodes left, everyone is in danger.
Money Heist season 5, part 2 will be released on Friday, December 3, on Netflix.
