‘Money Heist’ Season 4 Episode 7 Review: Can the Professor 'Strike the Tent' for victory after a big loss?
Spoilers for episode 7, 'Strike the Tent', of ‘Money Heist’ Season 4.
Nairobi’s execution will be met with unfathomable consequences and knowing the potential of the man behind the heist, the police better buck up. Following the death of another gang member, the robbers are determined to finish Gandia (José Manuel Poga). But the police, on the other hand, are preparing to launch an attack on the Bank of Spain in full force.
However, this time, the Professor (Alvaro Morte) resorts to a 7-stage plan to make their enemies suffer the most, but with the use of intellect as opposed to the means they used before. Episode 7 of ‘Money Heist’ witnesses the most heart-wrenching moment when Nairobi (Alba Flores) is brought out of the bank in a coffin, and unrest brews among the public who are now learning about the police’s inhumane treatment of the robbers who have grown to become the citizens’ darlings.
Meanwhile, Tomoya (Fernando Cayo) and Prieto (Juan Fernández) are starting to feel the heat as the Professor’s actions threaten their own positions. They soon realize that Nairobi’s funeral was a well-planned move by the opposition to gain sympathy in the eyes of the public.
Each time the NIA and the police come up with a plan to take the Professor down, their actions are met with greater reactions, ensuring they go on a downward spiral.
Fulfilling his promise, the Professor ensures Lisbon (Itziar Ituño) is moved out of the tent and demands an open investigation. Meanwhile, Rio’s (Miguel Herrán) video revealing the torture he was subjected to during his illegal prosecution leads to the NIA and police earning the wrath of the public, leaving them with their fate up in the air.
Although episode 7 of ‘Money Heist’ Season 4 sees the Professor win big against his enemies, his responsibilities stretch far beyond that. Considering the perils piling on his students with each passing hour, the Professor has very little time to get them out alive along with the 90 tonnes of gold that is being melted inside the bank.
But, how far can the Professor go after having lost an essential member of the gang and control the heist which has lost its order? There’s also Gandia, who wouldn’t rest until he hunts down every robber who has taken over the Bank of Spain.
With only an episode left until the conclusion of the latest season of ‘Money Heist’, we couldn’t help but wait with bated breath to see what awaits our beloved thieves and dear Professor.
‘Money Heist’ Season 4 is available to stream on Netflix.
