As to the nature of the show created by Álex Pina, a lot was at risk in its Season 4, and that includes the lives of everyone involved in the heist inside The Bank of Spain and outside. Everything fell apart when one of the most loved characters of the show, Nairobi, was killed. Fans were extremely disappointed. But the latest developments suggest that Nairobi is not dead in Netflix’s Money Heist and will be returning to lead the Season 5.
Nairobi is not dead in Netflix’s Money Heist – will return to lead in Season 5?
There is a reason Money Heist is called ‘La casa de papel’ in Spanish, it means ‘The House of Paper’. Everything is so vulnerable, that you never know when the plan, the relationships, or any of the team members would fall.
The same happened in Money Heist Season 4 Episode 6. One of the most loved characters, Nairobi, played by Alba Flores, was shot dead by Gandia, played by Mario de la Rosa.
Fans were enraged and sad over her death and the way she was killed in the show, mercilessly and cold-bloodedly. However, there are possibilities that Nairobi might not be dead and can return to Netflix’s Money Heist Season 5.
Alba Flores reveals the truth about Nairobi’s death.
Everyone’s favorite Alba Flores left a great impact on the show. Throughout the first three seasons, her character remained one of the most crucial moving parts of the story. In Season 2, when Nairobi took the charge of Heist from berlin, she pumped un new energy into the show.
However, even after surviving Season 3 after getting shot in her chest, it appears like the creators wanted her dead. However, Nairobi might not be permanently dead in Netflix’s Money Heist. And Alba Flores have confirmed this possibility.
“I would not be surprised. The Casa de Papel has done that with several characters, such as Oslo, who did not speak but appeared in the last season. It would therefore not be strange”, she explained to Fotogramas while revealing if there’s a possibility of Nairobi returning.
How Nairobi can return in Money Heist Season 5.
It’s too early to claim that Nairobi will come back to life in Season 5 and that The Professor (Álvaro Morte), Tokyo (Úrsula Corberó), Raquel Murillo (Itziar Ituño), and team will rejoice her return.
But Nairobi’s return isn’t a very tough task either. Season 3 and 4 saw the return of Berlin in the form of flashbacks, and also in the form of the plan for the heist. And it wasn’t only a tiny appearance. Berlin, played by Pedro Alonso, kept returning in the show in form of flashbacks and remained the part of the team even after being dead.
Netflix and the creators can take a similar approach in Season 5 after Nairobi’s death. As we saw in the finale episode of Season 4, the whole team was hailing “for Nairobi” while gathering themselves to continue the heist. It’s sensible to bring back Nairobi in the form of flashbacks, as you can’t just forget a character like her.
Also, as Nairobi’s death will be the driving force for the whole team in Netflix’s Money Heist Season 5, it’s not wrong to say that’s she’ll be the leader, as she always deserved to be.
