Netflix Money Heist Season 5 review

The beginning of the season brings us to a few major questions. As the team starts to hit their bad fate and the professor is busted, we had questions like will the professor survive? Is their death fixed or will they manage to survive? What is right and what is wrong? Are there any chances of Redemption? Season 5 brings us answers to a lot of these questions.

A full-on war series, Netflix’s most popular Spanish show Money Heist season 5 brings us with a lot of mixed emotions but this time it was not the professor who stole the show but Alicia Sierra. We see flashbacks of stories of where these people come from, what they and why, and what price they pay to do what they do, which is something we didn’t even realize we needed but was so relatable.

There’s not a single moment when you won’t find things which you’re curious off. It holds us from the beginning to the end as the end starts to seem nearer, we’re even more connected to the characters already!

Do you know what’s even more worth? We see Alicia as a suspended cop who busted a wanted robber was at the last cycle of pregnancy! The scene where Alicia delivers a baby with the help of the professor will not only make you realize the sensitivity of the plot but also fall in love with this character and oh man, well played!

In addition, Tokyo’s character revelation is going to make you fall in love with her vulnerabilities but also break your heart by the end of the series. There are new characters added, of course, to level up, and is done beautifully!


It’s the beginning of the end and survival is the only thing that matters. Flaming torches, raining bullets, and grenades bring with a tonne of emotions while there are action-packed sequences while the vulnerabilities of characters will also break your heart. The real question that arises is, is the Heist successful?

As we reach the end of the series, there are surely a few heartbreaking scenes as Nairobi being shot is one of the spoilers I just gave, so yeah keep your tissues handy!
