While season 5 of “Money Heist” has still not been formalized by Netflix, fans are already indulging in many theories about the sequel. And according to one of them, Tokyo’s “death” could be the next twist in the series.
Since the launch of season 4 of La Casa de Papel in early April on Netflix, subscribers have been impatiently waiting to know when the robbery series created by Alex Pina will return for a fifth burst of episodes. The streaming platform has not yet confirmed anything on this subject, but a season 5 should indeed see the light of day soon and fan speculation on the continuation of the adventures of Rio, Denver, Tokyo, the others are already going well. And if the final cliffhanger of season 4 gives hope for a confrontation at the top – or on the contrary an unexpected rapprochement and a new alliance – between the Professor (Alvaro Morte) and Alicia (Najwa Nimri), who found themselves face to face at the very end of the last episode, a very observant fan thinks that a huge surprise awaits us on the side of Tokyo (Úrsula Corberó)… which according to him could die during the season 5. Well almost.
As reported by the British site Express, it is on Reddit that a certain jeffman980 has indeed proposed his vision of things for season 5 of La Casa de Papel. According to him, the sentence pronounced by the Professor to the attention of his gang of robbers, “You will not be able to get out of there alive”, is not trivial and suggests that the thinking head of the robbery of the Bank of Spain has planned a new “deadly” ploy to thwart the police plans. The funeral of Nairobi (Alba Flores), shown in season 4, would have, according to jeffman980, been in part a test on the part of the Professor aimed at analyzing the reactions of the police in order to subsequently stage the “false death” from Tokyo.”Even if the funeral in Nairobi was used to commemorate his death, my theory is that there was another reason behind the ceremony,” said the user on Reddit. “We know that Gandia told Tamayo that he killed Tokyo, as well as Nairobi. But in reality Tokyo is not dead.” A “detail” which has not yet gone to the ears of the police and which may well be important in the next episodes.
“We could therefore attend the” funeral “of Tokyo in season 5” , continues jeffman980. “It would get the first gang member out of the bank without being detected”. And according to him, this new sleight of hand on the part of the Professor would make it possible to take out part of the gold from the Bank of Spain (gold which would thus be hidden in the coffin of Tokyo) and to put on stage the reunion of Tokyo and the Professor, who could then work together from the outside to help the rest of the gang come out alive from this endless robbery. Unless the distraction caused by the funeral simply allows the robbers, who would benefit from the inattention of Tamayo’s men, to flee the establishment more easily. All the scenarios seem possible and, even if this fan theory remains a simple theory, this twist seems rather plausible in the universe of La Casa de Papel, where everything is always a bit far-fetched.
Of course, the Professor should be able to make sure that the police are not looking inside the coffin so that this “plan” can stand up, but we say that the possible alliance that seems to be emerging between Alicia Sierra and him could help him there. Alicia still has many connections within the police and just as many means to distract the police at the right time. So, did jeffman980 guess one of the big twists of season 5 of La Casa de Papel? Answer most certainly in 2021 on Netflix. By now, watch Money Heist online here.
