Spoilers for 'Money Heist' Season 4 Episode 2  

The Professor (Alvaro Morte) needs to ensure nothing hinders the heist, even though the gang is falling apart owing to the clash of egos and dominance of one over the other. While he continues to mourn Lisbon’s loss, unaware of her existence, a ruthless Alicia Sierra (Najwa Nimri) is seen driving Raquel Murillo (Itziar Ituno) up the wall to find out about her husband’s whereabouts.

The circumstances have put Lisbon and The Professor in a tough spot and any move from either of their ends is pivotal to the heist and the lives of the robbers. However, while Raquel continues to refrain from complying with the truce, The Professor is comprehending life and death while the police are hot on his trail. 

Episode 2 of ‘Money Heist’ Season 4 sees Tokyo’s (Ursula Corbero) desperation to lead the robbery at the Bank of Spain, for she is the one who made it happen and believes The Professor, her guardian angel wouldn’t underestimate her abilities. 

Meanwhile, Palermo (Rodrigo De la Serna) is seen forming an alliance with Gandia (Jose Manuel Poga) to act against his own friends and fellow robbers after he was ordered to be held captive by Tokyo. 

While the heist continues to be embroiled in umpteen issues, which has already turned The Professor hopeless, Alicia uses her manipulative ways to convince Raquael into accepting the deal, which promises her a minimal time in prison, only if she reveals crucial details about her husband. 

Alicia and Lisbon coming face-to-face has been a defining moment in the series as it sees two opposite yet equally determined souls, who aren’t willing to compromise at anything. 

Although Raquel’s confidence and trust in The Professor remained intact initially, she begins to lose focus when Alicia questions the former about the safety of her daughter and mother, which is dependent on a man who been absconding himself. 

Lisbon might be the love of The Professor’s life, but, as two individuals who walked opposite paths before fate brought them together, their relationship is bound to be faced with issues. And, the first of their major fall out occurred only a few moments before they were traced down by Angelo and the team. An unconditional love drives the duo undeniably. But that alone wouldn’t assure Raquel her family’s well-being, especially knowing the consequences of joining hands with the most wanted criminal. 

Making the best out of the least ideal situation, Acilia tries to lure Raquael into surrendering by offering her what she needs the most; a reunion with her family without having to serve time in prison. 

Will Raquel come to grips with the actuality and alter her opinion of The Professor based on what Alicia said? Or will she put up an act of compromise only to buy time until her husband traces her down? 

‘Money Heist’ Season 4 is available to stream on Netflix.
