'Deadly Class' episode 6 preview: Killing Chico was just the beginning of Maria Salazar's craziness
The promo teaser for the upcoming episode titled 'Stigmata Martyr' shows Maria in a crazy frenzy after murdering her boyfriend, Chico
Is 'Deadly Class' a fate-driven drama? If yes, then Chico (Michel Duval) was fated to be killed by his long-term girlfriend Maria Salazar (María Gabriela de Faría), who was oppressed, assaulted and harassed by the leader of Sato Vamos, until the last episode, 'Saudade,' where she neatly slit his throat with her bladed fan.
The promo teaser for the upcoming episode titled 'Stigmata Martyr' recently released, and it looks like Maria isn't just loving her new-found freedom, she is exploiting it. From Saya (Lana Condor) to Marcus Arguello (Benjamin Wadsworth), they are shaken to see Maria going all explicit and walking through the halls of King's Dominion with her new minions. She almost looks like she replaced Chico in the school of assassins.
The trailer opens with her punishment, because, in King's Dominion, using the deadly arts of killing and murdering on their own classmates is a punishable offense, forget slicing the throat of a lover. "You know you did it Maria, you just don't know why," a headmistress tells her as she canes Maria's clutched hands till it bleeds.
But that punishment does not stop her from challenging Saya and making vigorous moves to Marcus, grabbing his head and kissing him in the bathroom. She downs a bottle of alcohol and her emotional outbursts see her cry by the corner as Marcus consoles her. "You need to get her in control," Saya exclaims. Marcus adds "she's acting crazy," looking dazed and worried. Saya quips "and she's going to get us killed, so, figure it out."
Saya is immediately seen in action, wielding her katana and Maria is in her own fierce prowess with Marcus. "How did I get myself into this?" he questions as the teaser concludes with Maria dressed in her assassin attire, red dress and face paint, as she flicks open her lethal folding fans.
What's next for Maria surely looks like trouble for the rest of the assassin gang, let's not forget how Chester F**kface Wilson has sworn to kill Marcus. If he is anywhere close to the school, then Maria's crackdown may only serve to be a distraction from something terrible that's coming. Rewind to the part where Saya says "she's going to get us killed."
Fans are divided when it comes to supporting Maria or Saya for Marcus because clearly Saya and Marcus had a thing going since the very first episode, while Maria was the bold one to admit her feelings and get his attention. Saya and Maria are best friends, no doubt, they are even #bffgoals, but they are also assassins and we dread a conflict, if it happens anytime soon. We aren't ready to lose another major character.
