The Money Heist series finale is very close! The show promises to break the internet with its ending, but what is the key to its success? Let’s analyze it … from he point of view of someone who didn’t watch the show even once. Sounds interesting?
Here we go!
I don’t watch Money Heist. Yes, I know, what cave am I in? And more being Spanish. As we say around here: “menudo delito tienes, guapa.” But just because I don’t watch it doesn’t mean I don’t know anything about it. I always like to find out about the shows that Netflix produces in Spain, especially when they become a mass phenomenon, like Money Heist.
So I watched the trailer for the last part and OH. MY. GOSH! I mean, if not watching this show and therefore not having an emotional connection to the characters, I was speechless and freaked out, I imagine the fandom exploded.
I’m sure you’ve seen the trailer as well as 10,000 times but we’re going to remind you, you know, for science (wink, wink.)
YEAHHH!!!! The void Tokyo left is still felt. And her death may not be the only one because, as we see in the trailer, the entire team is going to be in danger. How will the world’s biggest heist end?
We don’t know how everything will end but we‘re with the thieves. And it’s weird because Money Heist is that show where the bad guys become the good guys and you don’t want them to get caught or for anything bad to happen to them. Why?
I think that Money Heist was born at a very specific social moment in Spain, at a time when banking entities took advantage of the power they had achieved and, as if that were not enough, all citizens had to pay their ransom so that they didn’t enter into bankruptcy, with all that means economically speaking.
That was one of the reasons why banks and everything that had to do with the financial world became a kind of enemy for citizens. In other words, if they are robbed, it’s only paying back a tenth of everything they won in questionable ways.
So, Spanish society — and clearly, the world at large — was ready to enjoy the biggest heist in the world proposed by Money Heist, because somehow you felt like this team is a kind of modern and Spanish Robin Hood, and with this heist you have the feeling that it’s a kind of poetic justice.
Everyone felt the same, so we were all ready for this. This is what we wanted to see on our screen.
The rest of the success of Money Heist is due to the intelligence of its script, the fast pace of the show and the emotions that its characters show, the way they relate with each other, and the emotional conflicts they face. The way lonely people come together with a common goal and find a real family.
