What could have caused the showrunners of La Casa de Papel to kill Nairobi in part 4 of the Netflix series? While the fifth and final season of the Spanish show kicks off in two months (September 3), many fans of the series are wondering which characters will reappear in flashbacks. Some hope to see Nairobi again, played by Alba Flores, whose death in episode 6 of season 4, had saddened more than one and raised some questions.
Series director and producer Jesús Colmenar spoke to Indian Express on June 4 about this choice: “Nairobi was kind of the heart of the gang. And I think in this last season Nairobi would have struggled to fit in because it’s a one-on-one season. And Nairobi has always been a different character, a character who was not made for direct confrontation ”. He concludes by saying: “Her legacy will inspire the other characters, that’s for sure.”
Indeed, this fifth season promises to be explosive. Álex Pina, the creator of the program, had announced that he wanted to surprise viewers in a press release released by Netflix on May 24: “We started with a very aggressive style, putting the gang in a critical situation.” The tone is set.
