Queen of the South Season 5 Episode 1 Spoilers

The premiere episode of ‘Queen of the South’ season 5 is called ‘Fantasmas.’ We are well aware of the eternal enmity between the judge and Teresa, which is why we believe that season 5 will progress along the lines of this ever-existing feud. In the first episode, we will see Teresa setting out to expand her business in New York City while James will prove his allegiance to her. James is the only person she cares about, and that is not a good thing because the judge will go to any lengths to seek revenge. James might be his next target.

Javier will return as Teresa’s right hand, but this time, the stakes are high. After he killed Lafayette’s nephew, he has set off a long chain of events that will inevitably lead to destruction. The judge will not back down at any cost, and there is also a high possibility that James would be Lafayette’s next victim. No matter how important he is to her, his presence will certainly lead to Teresa’s downfall. After Tony’s death, Teresa is in a vulnerable state, and her emotions have found a medium to be channeled out. That medium is James. Much of season 5 will focus on her emotional state, as she deals with James coming back and Tony’s tragic fate.
