What to expect from Money Heist Part 3
*SPOILERS FOR PART 2*
The thieves were successful in printing over €1 Billion, but not without the loss of members of the team. Just narrowly able to escape from the Madrid police force, the team and the Professor escaped with their loot, disappearing without a trace. It wasn’t until a year later that Raquel received a postcard with co-ordinates leading her to reunite with the professor.
Speaking to FormulaTV Jesús Colmenar, one of the producers gave us insights into part 3. “The Professor ended up in Palawan, in the Philippines, and I would like to think that he is not a flashy guy and that he lives a normal life there. He took all this money more as a blow to the system than for personal enjoyment,”.
With the amount of money stolen by the team and the professor, there will be an international manhunt for every person involved in the heist.
Assuming not all members of the heist are particularly good at hiding their newfound wealth it won’t be long before the authorities come knocking, ready to take back all that cash.
When one domino falls so will the others, so with all the members potentially being hunted by the Spanish authorities, it can be expected that most of the season may become a cat and mouse game between the heist team and those who wish to bring them to justice.
