‘Money Heist’ Season 4: Here’s What Fans Want To See
As the buzz for Stranger Things 3 slowly eases up, other Netflix shows are taking their turn in the binge cycle. La Casa de Papel, aka Money Heist, returned to the platform July 19. If you sailed through all three seasons of the show, then you know there are some new faces on the team as well as a cascade of new threats heading into part four.
When part three began, paradise was found, but it was short-lived thanks to the irresponsibility of a particular couple. Fans sat through a high stakes eight-episode run that ended in blood, explosions, and one of the group members being captured. Last month, Spanish newspaper el Periódico confirmed that La Casa de Papel was renewed for part four. With the news that Money Heist is already filming, fans have their own ideas about what they want to see happen in the next installment. (Spoilers ahead)
Aye, Nairobi! Alba Flores’s Nairobi was shot by a military sniper in the finale episode. Among the new characters introduced this season was the formidable government agent, Alicia Sierra. Played by Najwa Nimri, Sierra is ruthless, cunning, and smart, and gave the thieves a run for their money.
However, her cruelty was boundless when she marched Nairobi’s son outside of the Bank of Spain’s front lawn to taunt her about her parenting skills and criminal wrongdoings. Nairobi was suckered into taking the bait, much to the dismay of fans. Sierra gave the signal, and Nairobi was shot while standing in the window, leading the rest of the crew to scramble in those final scenes to try and save her. Blood was on the floor and coming out of her mouth, but do her closed eyes mean she’s dead or just passed out?
Another successful escape, please
Cornered and armed with rocket launchers, the gang is stuck inside the bank with little leverage for negotiation. The red boxes are moot (or are they?). Cops are dead. Lisbon (Raquel) has been compromised. The Professor is unhinged. And one of their own is bleeding out. The public’s sympathy is questionable at this point. What are their options?
Fans don’t know how the team will make it out alive in part four, but we shouldn’t be surprised if Professor has some V for Vendetta-style backup plan. Or five. Ideally, everyone will be able to escape and reunite at some point. As pointed out by Variety, relationship drama, gender politics, and organizational issues could affect their efforts.
A comeuppance for several characters
While Sierra has proven herself to be the perfect antagonist in Money Heist, it’s possible that her tricks will at some point lead to her undoing. Something tells us that even if she went into labor in the command tent, she’d find a way to stay on the job. She’s pissed off the Professor—who doesn’t realize he’s been fooled into believing Raquel is dead—and is now at the top of his war hitlist. We’ve never seen him unravel like this before, so there’s no telling how things will end for Sierra as the person who’s greenlighting the use of shady tactics.
Fans want to see the Money Heist robbers win, but let’s not pretend Tokyo is not a problem. I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: She’s bratty and impulsive. Tokyo either needs to grow up and get it together or face some consequences for her ocean of bad choices.
Another person who needs to learn a few more lessons is Arturo. He’s still committed to being a full-time jerk with fake courage, and part three ends with him inside the bank. His arrogance toward Stockholm—his former secretary-mistress and now mother of his child—should almost guarantee him some sort of whipping in part four.
While it’s true that the next part is in production, no details on possible release dates have been shared. Until part four of Money Heist hits Netflix, fans can continue to post their thoughts, theories, and expectations online.
