There may be NO TIME for any chill heart-to-hearts within the financial institution in “Your Place in Heaven,” which opens roughly the place we left off: Helsinki is constructing his trench within the eating corridor when the ceiling explodes, blowing him backward. The blast additionally knocks over what we later be taught is a two-ton marble statue, pinning Helsinki and crushing his leg. Palermo retains Helsinki awake by speaking to him on the walkie whereas they make their option to him, but it surely isn’t good. The troopers make their drop-in, and a firefight ensues between them and Palermo’s crew. A few of the commandos get injured, and heaps of artwork and artifacts get destroyed. Helsinki finally tells Palermo to chop his leg off, which — since his bones are principally all shattered, and he’s bleeding out from the femoral artery — he’s fairly certain is what they’ll do if he makes it to a hospital anyway. Bogotá is able to do it if Palermo can’t, however Palermo insists they will transfer the statue with a lever, and Rio notices {that a} ceiling beam is coanveniently hanging down by a sliver. Leverage does certainly raise the statue off Helsinki, allowing Palermo and Bogotá to tug him into the museum, and someplace the gangs’ high-school physics lecturers beam with delight. Who says you received’t ever use these things in real-life conditions?

Within the hideout, after the Professor has saved her child, Sierra is past caring as he will get again on his headset to get the replace contained in the financial institution. As soon as he has stopped Tokyo and the remainder of the rear-guard crew from speeding onto the roof (the place one of many 100 snipers surrounding the financial institution will instantly kill them) and hears Lisbon affirm my idea that she snuck a microphone into the Governor’s cuffs earlier than releasing him, the Professor turns to sensible issues. After telling Marseille and Benjamín to get their guys to begin the foundry, he sends Marseille out for no matter child gear Sierra might want to improvise a nursery within the hideout; generously, she provides that Marseille ought to get one thing for the Professor’s foot since he appears to have forgotten that she shot him. The Professor asks Sierra to present Marseille her cartridge clip for everybody’s security, and the convenience with which she complies makes me assume she has one other one someplace. (I assume we … all know one place she didn’t disguise it.)

There may be, after all, a plan for the roof: Tokyo, Manila, Denver, and Matías will lead the remaining hostages on the market — some masked, some not — and blend in with them in order that the authorities received’t know who’s who. (We haven’t seen Matías a lot this season; he has typically been managing hostages away from the motion.) As quickly as this section of the plan kicks off, Tamayo orders the snipers to shoot anybody who will get close to the outlet, which is when the Professor makes use of his relay in Pakistan to name Tamayo privately. He compliments Tamayo on his flexibility with laws and ethics — he’s so versatile he should do yoga! This MF claims he does CAPOEIRA, LOL, and has no persistence for the Professor’s cheeky guess that it should make him a superb lover, so the Professor will get to the purpose and performs the recording of Tamayo stating his hope that Arturo dies of his wounds so Tamayo can paint the heist gang as murderers. The Professor has an entire plan in place to show how Tamayo cast the proof in opposition to Sierra and hyperlink Tamayo himself to the Professor through a money switch. Tamayo decides to not take a look at the Professor’s resolve and calls off his plan to have a bomb robotic enter the bottom flooring of the financial institution.

The roof plan proceeds as designed, apart from Manila needing to discover a piece of wall to protect herself whereas she has a minor panic assault. Tokyo and Denver attempt to calm her down by distracting her; solely as a result of, she says, she believes they’re all about to die, she confesses she has been in love with Denver her entire life. Tokyo makes Manila repeat after her: No person goes to die immediately — and truthfully, if even poor Helsinki has survived this lengthy, it appears to be true!

When the time comes for the rear crew to maneuver, Matías opens the roof door simply lengthy sufficient to launch a duffel bag stuffed with weapons tethered to considered one of their ankles. Matías then will get shot nearly instantly — not fatally, however nonetheless, he’s on their lonesome within the stairwell, which might be not nice. Nonetheless freaked out by the Professor’s name, Tamayo refuses to allow the snipers to shoot as Denver, Manila, and Tokyo method the outlet within the roof and prepare to drop into the motion …

… which is getting intense. Stockholm pauses in her protecting fireplace when she thinks she sees Arturo strolling sadly towards her via the smoke however quickly shakes it off as she and the remainder of the gang again into the museum to attract the troopers out of their trench to observe them. As soon as the troopers have cleared the roof gap, the rear crew drops in behind them, and Palermo’s technique proves out because the commandos discover themselves surrounded. Sagasta appears prepared to attend it out till Tamayo will get on the radio: Sagasta and his crew must do what they will to withstand the assault as a result of Tamayo received’t be sending anybody in after them. It appears as if the gang has the benefit. And that might be true if solely the Professor had identified he wasn’t designing his plan off the latest data for the constructing. It turns on the market’s a fingerprint scanner within the museum that can drop security doorways, and Gandía has entry to it. The troopers feint like they’re about to drop their weapons, then toss out grenades to occupy the gang whereas they get to the scanner. The doorways drop, leaving practically all your complete crew members on the opposite aspect of a metal barrier.

Practically all: Denver, Manila, and Tokyo are trapped on the opposite aspect of the library and inside with Sagasta, Gandía, and the struggle criminals. They handle to make it to the kitchen, the place the Professor orders them to make a trench. (Right here’s hoping Helsinki didn’t burn up all the rice making his.) Staying on-brand as a real psychopath, Gandía calls out to Tokyo, “Somewhat chicken simply informed me Nairobi is saving you a spot in Heaven.” Gandía can’t, after all, know that Tokyo was simply enthusiastic about a chat she and Nairobi had again on the monastery, throughout which Nairobi mentioned she didn’t consider in an afterlife; she hoped to be remembered by her buddies for the best way she touched their lives. Tokyo replied that she believes she’ll hold dwelling within the ultimate thought earlier than her demise, which is why, at any time when she’s within the shit, she thinks again to when she was happiest. Let’s assume Tokyo’s on the point of make some new completely satisfied recollections by blowing Gandía’s disrespectful mouth off his fascist head within the midseason finale.

• We see the heist Berlin drafted Rafael for! With out getting right into a full blow by blow, it includes Rafael posing as Tatiana’s piano tuner, a safety guard’s senile father crashing Tatiana’s efficiency, and a vault with shifting partitions. After Rafael efficiently hacks the vault and swaps out the gold burial presents for the brass ones, he’s justly giddy till Berlin says he’s going to show Rafael his most vital lesson of all, tossing the case stuffed with booty out a rest room window and into the water beneath: “Solely a thief can really feel that one thing they don’t personal is theirs. Now you’re considered one of us.” It’s a ruse, after all: Bogotá, in scuba gear, retrieves the case, they usually choose up each him and the gold in a motorboat afterward, en path to Malmö. Berlin continues to be in an instructive temper, telling Rafael, “When you actually need one thing in life, you must steal it from whoever has it. That’s how the world works, my son.” As Rafael appears to be like backward and exchanges a big look with Berlin’s lovely spouse, it appears as if Rafael is plotting his subsequent heist already.

• I really feel just like the Alicia Sierra of earlier this exact same day would have torn out Marseille’s throat for daring to ask if she deliberate to breast- or bottle-feed. Possibly motherhood has mellowed her. Or perhaps she’s simply too drained to be homicidal.

• I don’t know something, however I have watched a TV present earlier than, and Manila’s declaration of affection implies that both (1) she’s about to get killed, (2) Denver’s about to get killed, or (3) Stockholm’s about to get killed, leaving Manila and Denver to get collectively and lift Cincinnati collectively. I do know which end result I’m hoping for — you?
