The challenge of Who killed Sara? Season 3 introduces an even more evil villain than Cesar and Mariana Lazcano. That’s what It’s Jean Reno’s sadistic Reinaldo, in fact.
Reinaldo is proof of all the cruelty and cruelty committed by Cesar and his wife – including murder, statutory rape and sex trafficking – this wackadoo doctor, with methods ancient aversion therapy to “cure” homosexuality, much worse. That’s because Reinaldo is a puppet master who turns out to be so powerful and prophetic that he orchestras not only Alex’s friendship with Rodolfo and Chema, but also Sara’s kidnapping and the fake death afterwards.
Which means it’s not just Alex Not killed his sister, a crime for which he served 18 years in prison, but the man’s sister wasn’t even dead. Sara lived at least another year when Reinaldo tortured her with countless rounds of electroconvulsive therapy and drug trials to get rid of schizophrenia. Reinaldo even took Sara’s child, whom she named Lucia after her mother, and raised the child to observe if he inherited his mother’s mental illness.
Sara tried to escape Reinaldo’s madness, but she was recaptured and ended up taking her own life to free herself from his horrible and inhuman methods. Where Sara got that huge knife from is still a mystery. But the fact that fans had to endure Mariner’s false confession at the end of Season 2, and Sara’s eventual suicide in Season 3, was a fate worse than anything Reinaldo could have suffered.
To be clear, Who killed Sara? always a messy, silly, and improbable scenario, where Alex and Cesar can get shot multiple times and never die, and Elisa can burn down a whole casino without going to jail. By casting Reinaldo as the devil, the film loses its sense of humor and sense of self. Perhaps this is why when Alex electrocuted Reinaldo to death righteously and full of hatred, his incoming friend felt empty.
Meanwhile, Rodolfo (remember him?) can do nothing more than deliver a bag of dynamite designed by Alex to a group of Hungarian pimps to whom Cesar owes money. With those guys dead, Rodolfo lived the little life he had left pouting because his father wasn’t proud of him, lusting after his half-sister Lucia (because she looked like love). of his life, Sara) and jumped in. in front of bullets to protect his family. At least Rodolfo is better dead than alive.
The same cannot be said for Chema, a once vibrant and lovable character who has been reduced to a cautionary tale of homophobia, prison sex abuse and unrequited love and his unrequited love for Alex. The fact that Alex kissed Elisa in front of him, in what was supposed to be a happy ending, just felt so cruel. Oh, and did we mention his mother stole the money and put him in Reinaldo’s gay conversion clinic?
Daniela, meanwhile, is now wandering aimlessly through the Mexican countryside, Mariana is a nun and Cesar is dying of pancreatic cancer in prison. A better ending would be a makeover montage for Lucia because of her Samara wig from Rings is just too ridiculous – even for a show as wild as this.
