Usually, when French actor Jean Reno is involved in a production, he brings an extra layer of flair and excitement. Sadly, this was not the case during Netflix’s Season 3 premiere Who killed Sara?, as Die Hart the star manages to add more confusion and questions to the thread than answers.
That says a lot for a telenovela that ended its second season with the show’s title and major conceit pouring out of its head at suggesting that Sara wasn’t dead yet. This also happened after Mariner – a little more than her – confessed to killing Sara. Turns out, Mariner cut Sara’s parachute cord to let her die, but she didn’t.
Instead, Reno’s character Reinaldo faked her death and made her patient zero in some strange medical experiment he was conducting. The plot behind this experiment was so complex that Sara’s psychiatrist Dr. Hugo Alanis was involved in it, and so was Reinaldo’s son, Nicandro. Sara, who was pregnant with Cesar’s child when she was presumed dead, meanwhile, gave birth to the baby in the end.
But where Sara and her baby are these days remains a mystery – until now. Thankfully, Alex and Elisa are on the case. The hospital where they visit Mariner (who also hasn’t died) seems to be the same strange facility where Reinaldo held Sara and conducted his unethical and controversial tests. Alex and Elisa discovered the clinic when a nurse called them on Mariner’s behalf so Mariner could talk to them before she died.
While visiting Mariner, she entered the names of Dr. Alanis and Nicandro into Alex’s phone to let him know something nefarious was going on. Even without Mariner’s information, Alex and Elisa could tell that the establishment was suspicious because of all the security cameras. The two goons eventually toppled the pair from the base, and that’s when Alex decided to visit Nicandro.
More beautiful than he is bright, Nicandro accidentally reveals that he knows Mariner can’t speak because her lungs were burned in the casino fire. If he hadn’t been part of a fake clinic plot, he wouldn’t have known the details. However, before Alex could get more information about him, Nicandro tripped over an alarm, and Alex narrowly escaped before the police arrived.
All of this, plus a folder of documents Alex found at the clinic and the corpse of Dr. Alanis, prompted Alex to see the authorities, who then excavated Sara’s grave and found a empty coffin! Oh snap! After all, is Sara still alive?
Elsewhere in the premiere, Chema performs sex in prison for a phone with no battery (can this man please rest?!), and Rodolfo discovers that father His is Cesar in the Seychelles. Soon after, Cesar’s money was stolen by hackers, but it is not clear whether Alex is the culprit or someone else.
