Money Heist Season 4 Episode 3 Review

Alicia Sierra pokes Lisbon to take the deal. She knows that the one thing she can use against her former colleague is her daughter. The sweeping of the van through which Lisbon and the Professor had previously co-ordinated the heist brings new evidence to light. Once again, Alberto, Raquel’s ex, proves that he is excellent at what he does and comes up with a way to locate her daughter.

As the clock ticks on the deal in front of Lisbon, who becomes increasingly anxious to take it, the Professor becomes worried about her getting his message. A similar yearning of sending their love across is seen in Denver. In the last episode, he had lost his calm with Arturo, and while that action was wholly justified, it made Stockholm reconsider their relationship.

This enraged and hot-headed man wasn’t the one with whom she had fallen in love. Denver tries to win her back, but before he can make that move, he sees her talking to Rio. A suspicion takes hold in his mind about them. He fails to see why he is driving her away, and instead of fixing his issues, he lashes out at others for being understanding of each other.

The episode also takes some time to focus on the PTSD of Rio. He was released in the last season, but the torture he had to endure isn’t something that can just disappear once he is out of it. He finds a friend in Stockholm; he is dealing with his issues. But this also makes him the weakest link, and others are quick to take advantage of it.

By the end of the episode, a new problem pops up for the robbers. The Professor doesn’t even get enough time to catch his breath from losing Lisbon, then getting her back, and ensuring she doesn’t switch sides. Now, a more significant threat is at hand, and this is something that not everyone might survive.

Things continue to move at a fast pace for ‘Money Heist’. There are no breaks, and by far, the season has continued to be as engaging as its predecessors. From the way this episode ends, it looks like the real challenge has emerged now. Plagued by their insecurities and skirmishes, it will not be easy for them to get out of this situation unscathed, not unless they set aside their differences—all of them.
