Who Died in Money Heist Season 5?

The first half of the fifth and final season of Money Heist (La Casa de Papel) premiered on Friday, September, and many fans were quick to binge-watch all five new episodes on Netflix, but if you haven't caught up, you're probably wondering who ends up dying.

The second volume of Money Heist Season 5 won't be released until December, but the first volume already packed a punch with a shocking death, so here's a warning for major spoilers ahead.

Back in Season 3, the Professor (played by Alvaro Morte) and his gang started planning a heist that targeted the Bank of Spain, but looking back, that might have been a mistake as the team has already lost one of their key members, and it looks like another one has died at the final episode of Money Heist Season 5, Volume 1.

In the final two episodes of Money Heist Season 5, Volume 1, a war in the Bank of Spain forced the team to split up as one of the relentless villain Gandia was able to activate the safe door so Berlin and his crew won't be able to help Tokyo (Úrsula Corberó), Denver (Jaime Lorente), and Manila (Belén Cuesta) fight Sagasta and his ruthless military team.

While trapped in the kitchen of the Bank of Spain, Tokyo, Denver, and Manila tried to keep the military at bay, and when the military discovered that Tokyo was in the freezer area, Sagasta ordered the snipers from outside to shoot through the walls, and several bullets hit Tokyo in her arms and legs, putting her in critical condition.

As Sagasta, Gandia, and his team continue to push through their defenses, Tokyo, Denver, and Manila realized that they were cornered, and their only escape route was a dumbwaiter that Stockholm (Esther Acebo) discovered. However, Tokyo told Denver that they can go without her since she knew that her injured arms won't be able to grip on the ropes. Once Denver and Manila went down, the two intended to fill the bottom of the dumbwaiter with as many soft objects to cushion Tokyo's fall, but that never happened.

Before Tokyo could jump off and before Rio (Miguel Herrán) could drill a hole from below to save her, Gandía (José Manuel Poga) and his crew closed their ranks. Tokyo took her last few minutes to thank The Professor and reminisce with Rio before fighting back at Gandia and his team. That move hurt her more, but it wasn't until Gandia stood over her that she pulled off her final move. While smiling at Gandia, she showed off several pins from the grenades attached on his body, then a huge explosion showed the power of her ultimate sacrifice.

So, apparently, Tokyo, the narrator of the show, died at the end of the first half of Money Heist Season 5, and her death shocked many fans who enjoyed watching her badass character develop since the first season. She literally went out with a bang, and the Professor and the crew are devastated to see her die.
