In a flashback, Berlin convinced his son Rafael to help him to steal 12 kg of gold with Tatiana, Bogota, and Marseille.
What Unique And Ultimately Most Inspiring About Money Heist
If we talk about uniqueness and inspiring thing then it is its revolutionary impact on real-world protests. In the series the citizens line the streets around the Royal Mint and the Bank of Spain, chanting their support for the robbers and booing the state’s violent policing tactics. If we see in real life the protesters in countries like Lebanon, Iraq, France, and others have borrowed motifs from the show in their struggle for liberation, police abolition, anti-authoritarianism, and anti-capitalism.
Ending Of Money Heist
The last five episodes which make its part 2 or second volume, did not complicate the story, rather summed up the plot. Tokyo’s death was a trigger point for the gang, but they soon get business of getting the gold out of the Bank of Spain. When the show is nearest to end, we saw The Professor walking inside the bank and nothing in hand not even gold or a back-up plan. But The Professor sans a Plan B will go against the core theme of the heist drama. He has a plan, and this time the plan is beyond any fan theory or expected plot.
