'Money Heist' aka 'La Casa de Papel' season 4: Will Tokyo's impulsive nature end up dooming The Professor's plans once again?
Hot-headed and impulsive, she is quick to draw conclusions and they mostly tend to be on the downside. Part four of 'Money Heist' aka 'La Casa de Papel' is in the works, and it is yet to be seen where it leads the team
'Money Heist' aka 'La Casa de Papel' seems to have surpassed all expectations with a whopping 34 million views for part three and fans are anticipating the fourth part to hit Netflix soon. Úrsula Corberó plays the central character of Silene Oliveira or Tokyo. "My name is Tokyo. But when the story started, that wasn't my name," she begins the narration. The protagonist of the show, she is scouted by The Professor (Álvaro Morte) to participate in the ultimate heist of the Royal Mint of Spain.
Once she agrees to be a part of the master plan, she is introduced to a bunch of other teammates, whose names are based on different cities—Nairobi, Moscow, Berlin, Rio, Denver, and Oslo. Hot-headed and impulsive, she is quick to draw conclusions and they mostly tend to be on the downside. She may be one of the most powerful female characters in the series but her lust for control is dangerous and puts the team in jeopardy.
Right at the beginning, she starts an affair with Rio even when The Professor made it clear that none of them should be involved in interpersonal relationships. "In the end, love is a good reason for everything to fall apart," she says in a scene. Soon after, during the mission, she flees while shooting at the cops and Rio is hurt in the process. Even after several warnings, she doesn't listen to her teammates and continues to take extreme measures without a second thought.
"I can behave like a proper girl for a long time, but little by little, the nasty girl inside me starts to take over," Tokyo says in season three, showing off her bratty, insensitive and selfish side. She definitely needs to change her ways, as she was basically the prime reason that Moscow was shot and fatally wounded. Moreover, she is the major cause of a rushed robbery. The Professor himself admits that the heist needed four-month-long planning. However, to save Rio after he gets caught by Panama authorities after a location leak, Tokyo takes it upon herself to bring all the members out of hiding.
It turns out to be the impending doom. Tokyo and Rio break up and Nairobi is supposedly dead. The other members are also in danger. Will Tokyo's hasty decisions bring an end to the heist and be a threat to the lives of other team members? Fans definitely feel so. In fact, going by earlier examples it wouldn't be wrong to assume that Tokyo's impulsive reactions could jeopardize the heist completely.
"If something doesn't go her way for even a second you are guaranteed to see her do something rash or annoying, cringe every time she appears now," one Reddit user wrote. Another one commented, "Besides the fact that she is totally retarded, she doesn't add any useful skill to the crew unless you count being a lunatic as a skill."
Nevertheless, her attitude does bring a touch of unpredictability to the show and it does pique the curiosity of viewers. Part four is in production and might release soon on Netflix. It will be interesting to see where Tokyo's character arc takes her in the next installment.
