The large query in “Do You Imagine in Reincarnation?” appears to be how a lot collateral injury is suitable in a state of affairs just like the Financial institution of Spain heist. Sierra, as we all know, needs she may go away much more, however for now she contents herself by getting the Professor on tape in his hideout, confirming that she was the one who apprehended him. Whereas he grudgingly complies, he sees on one in every of his screens that Benjamín and Marseille have pulled up, and he distracts Sierra so long as he can earlier than simply screaming at them {that a} cop is there. They don’t hear him, and after Sierra has knocked the Professor down (and reminded him that she’s not a cop), she sedates him with a jab to the neck, places him into mattress on the decrease bunk, and hides below a blanket above till she will be able to do the identical to Marseille. Benjamín is within the can — lotta bowel-movement illustration this season! — however hears glass smashing as Marseille falls down. He has time to place himself collectively and pull out his gun as Sierra approaches on the opposite aspect. After she takes the primary shot, he’s satisfied to slip his weapon to her below the door, and we go away the hideout, for now, together with her confusion about who he even is.

After a comparatively sedate Half 5 premiere, the stress has ratcheted again up on the financial institution. Lisbon, Stockholm, and Tokyo all take away their vests, fold down the tops of their jumpsuits to disclose that they’re not hiding something on their torsos, and stroll out barefoot, flanked by two strains of unmasked hostages. Tokyo narrates that the aim right here is to indicate “the individuals” that Lisbon’s not in courtroom or jail however again with the crew: “We had been displaying them if we may do this, we may do something. And other people started to consider in miracles.” “The individuals” don’t, in fact, embrace Tamayo, who’s able to kill the ladies on sight. Ángel convinces him that he’ll look stronger if he hears them out. Lisbon will get her telephone out to indicate Tamayo stay video of Gandía: The shrapnel lodged in his again may paralyze him if he doesn’t see a neurosurgeon very quickly. Tamayo refuses to ship one inside however notes that in the event that they launch Gandía to police custody, it’ll purchase the gang an hour earlier than Tamayo sends within the navy whereas the cops query Gandía for intelligence they will use.

The Governor, outdoors with the hostages, has additionally famous the navy presence on the web site and shares his alarm concerning the escalation with Arturo: “To the police, we’re hostages. To the military, we’re collateral injury … Their precedence is to kill [the gang], not rescue us.” Sagasta later confirms this to Tamayo, letting him know he shouldn’t anticipate a survival fee greater than 30 p.c — notably on condition that the group he calls for to make use of is a pack of Russian roulette–taking part in, monkey-fight-organizing psychos.

Anyway: Primarily based on the best way Tamayo is negotiating, Lisbon figures out that the cops don’t have the Professor and that Sierra is working alone. To verify she’s proper, Lisbon says she’ll launch Gandía solely after she has conferred with the Professor; when Tamayo agrees, she is aware of the gang has regained just a little negotiating energy.

However it doesn’t final lengthy. Unbeknownst to the ladies outdoors, Bogotà has determined to kick Gandía’s ass a short time they wait. Gandía apparently has no concern concerning the shrapnel threatening his spinal column as a result of he enthusiastically throws the primary few punches earlier than Bogotà simply begins wrecking him, which is what Lisbon, Tokyo, and Stockholm stroll again into. Whereas Stockholm yells at Denver for not having objected tougher to this struggle, and Lisbon tells Palermo what she has realized concerning the Professor, Arturo takes benefit of the chaos by going for the unattended weapons. The Governor had initially prevented Arturo from making a wild run for the tent whereas they had been outdoors, since it might be immoral to desert the remainder of the hostages inside, however in the end proposed an escape of 15-to-20 hostages to someplace safe contained in the financial institution.

And contemplating that Arturo is instrumental in it, the escape is shockingly profitable? He begins out by capturing wildly across the entrance foyer, hitting Denver within the arm (a number of hostages get comparatively minor accidents too), then supplies cowl because the Governor leads the hostages out, finally reaching the loading dock. The Governor is horrified to seek out that the gang has blocked the exit with a metal barrier and armed it with explosives, however Arturo is fairly excited: The loading dock is the place the gang has been storing all its weapons. Arturo orders a few hostages to cowl a pair of excessive home windows, and because the gangsters on-site slowly make their strategy, Palermo sees the snipers. Cue one other shootout, throughout which the blokes on the home windows get badly damage. The Governor is able to stop all offensive operations, however Arturo’s bloodlust won’t be sated. He’s barely remorseful when the recoil on his weapon makes him hit his personal guys and solely spits self-justifications: “That is warfare! Can’t you see? Churchill would see it as a victory.”

It doesn’t take lengthy for the gangsters to get right down to their final two clips. Tokyo suggests blowing the costs within the loading dock, however since that may gentle up all of the ammunition, it might collapse the constructing and kill everybody. Then she remembers a secure with extra arms, together with grenades, and takes off to interrupt in.

Then Helsinki studies that the navy is shifting in, so Lisbon tells Bogotà to launch Gandía. Since Gandía can’t wait to inform the authorities concerning the hostage rise up, Bogotà tapes a fentanyl smoke bomb to his chest earlier than sending him out, so all he can handle is to maintain repeating “The hostages —” earlier than collapsing. Tamayo instantly calls off Sagasta. Time has been purchased!

And the gangsters want it as a result of, inside, Arturo remains to be popping off. He begins by screaming taunts to Denver (who by now has had his arm handled with a bootlace tourniquet because of Manila) about how a lot and the way passionately Arturo and Stockholm used to bone again when she was nonetheless Monica, Arturo’s assistant. He additionally works in some jibes about Cincinnati’s parentage, for the reason that child is the product of that affair. Denver resists taking the bait so long as he can after which needs he had waited longer when his shells are not any match for the flamethrower Arturo has discovered. Listening to all of Arturo’s trash speak on the radio, Stockholm asks for Bogotà’s gun and races off to take care of the state of affairs herself. As she’s discovering her manner via the vents, Tokyo and Rio return with the grenades they recovered (after they weren’t flirting, that’s) and are dismayed to see that Arturo has determined to drive towards them in an armored automobile, capturing a Browning in a pleasant hat tip to Berlin in Half 2.

The gangsters’ tiny quantity of ammo is actually no match for Arturo’s assault, which is why it’s handy that that is the second Stockholm actually drops in. Whereas the remainder of her crew stays hidden across the nook, Arturo tries getting the higher of her by predicting that she received’t shoot the daddy of her youngster: He’s going to be the one one left to take care of Cincinnati when the heist is over. When that doesn’t work, he slowly reaches for the gun at the back of his belt whereas purring, “You’ll by no means be one in every of them.” Stockholm responds by capturing him in what seems to be his proper arm after which his left shoulder. Name this the most recent state of affairs Arturo has misinterpret with catastrophic penalties.
