On September 3, the first five episodes of season 5 of La Casa de Papel ( The Money Heist) were released . Five small doses of adrenaline that served to reconnect with the robbers, but also left us with honey on our lips. Raise your hand who was left wanting more to see the final credits come out! The good news is that the next five chapters will definitively close the great coup of the team of El Professor ( Álvaro Morte ) -which we already want to see how they turn out- and that there are only two and a half months left for it.
Since the atmosphere is lively and there is a desire to reel off the latest installment of Álex Pina’s series for Netflix, we are going to summarize what we already know about the second part of season 5 of La Casa de Papel. This is going to happen whether we want to or not.
RELEASE DATE OF THE SECOND PART OF SEASON 5 OF ‘LA CASA DE PAPEL’
Let’s go to what matters, when can we see the last episodes of La Casa de Papel ? As announced with the first ‘teaser’, the series finale will be available on Netflix from December 3 . Just three months after the premiere of the first part on September 3. 3, 3 and 3 … are you wanting to send us a message?
And how many episodes are left? Only five. Season 5 consists, in total, of 10 chapters divided into two batches. Therefore, the second half remains.
THERE ARE CHARACTERS THAT WILL NO LONGER APPEAR AND (SURELY) MORE DEATHS
Sadly, one of the things we already know about the last few episodes is that there are several characters who are not coming back. The first of them Tokyo ( Úrsula Corberó ), who sacrificed herself to be able to end the ‘suicide squad’ that had cornered them and, above all, with Gandía (José Manuel Poga). Another that will not return is Nairobi ( Alba Flores ), after her emotional death in the fourth season. Two characters who were key to making The Professor’s plan work and that viewers are going to miss a lot.
Surely they are not the only victims and we can expect the occasional death in the final stretch.
THE BREAK IS GETTING CLOSER
Season 5 of La Casa de Papel is not going to end without another bad news. This time in the love field. The five episodes of the first volume have left the seeds for the relationship between Stockholm ( Esther Acebo ) and Denver ( Jaime Lorente ) to break. Perhaps they are using them as a narrative claim to create tension, but the chemistry that exists between the robber and Manila ( Belén Cuesta ) makes us lean towards the letter of the rupture.
A MORE CHARACTER-CENTRIC SEASON
If what you like about the series is the relationships between the characters and not so much the action, you are going to love the second half of La Casa de Papel . ” The first five have an almost warlike dimension, full of power gender. And the second five has a more emotional dimension . Where the fundamental notes of the characters are promoted so that this closes and opens up to all the meats”, Alonso assured in an interview with this medium.
So we know there will be fewer shots, less pitched battle, and more unfinished business between the main characters.
HOW DOES ‘LA CASA DE PAPEL’ END?
That is the big question that will be resolved before the end of this 2021. After the death of important people and the final sacrifice of some, the situation is a little more controlled than in the previous installment. Yet they are surrounded by hundreds of police officers and the military. Only a miracle is going to get them out of there.
What we do know is that it was a very, very thoughtful ending. In an interview with the cast, Pedro Alonso explained that the writing team was literally until the last minute writing the outcome. And, even so, then they changed it three more times. “We were filming giving everything and the direction department demanded the latest version of chapter 10 and it did not arrive because they did not have it,” reveals the actor, “They did not know how it ended. They had several ideas, of course, as is normal, but They didn’t quite set up the way it suited them. They did it and still changed it afterward. ”
The remaining five episodes of season 5 of La Casa de Papel will premiere on December 3 on Netflix .
