How Money Heist’s Berlin went from unbearable to fan favorite

Money Heist Not only is it a global phenomenon and a game changer for non-English speaking shows on Netflix, but it has also succeeded in making us the root of thieves, even if that goes away. contrary to our deeply rooted morality. Period five seasons, a Spanish-language series that focuses on a group of outlaws, each with their own area of ​​expertise in felonies, as they commit two unpredictable heists. Always one step ahead of the police, Professor (Álvaro Morte) and his gang did everything down to the smallest detail and ultimately captivated viewers for both their strengths and weaknesses. Tokyo (Úrsula Corberó) for example, is very brave and caring for her companions but her fickle emotions have repeatedly posed a threat to the plan. However, fans are still mesmerized by her spirit and moved by her unprecedented ending to the series.

While each fan may be intrigued by a particular character, there is one team member who has won hearts despite his hateful sayings and personality. Berlin (Pedro Alonso) was introduced as the leader of the heist of the Royal Spanish Mint and remained in close contact with the Professor to ensure that the scheme would work, no matter the cost. Although in reality he represents everything abominable in the face of society, his trajectory Money Heist was so treasured that he remained in the series until its final chapter. In the midst of the release of the final episodes of Netflix, an announcement was made about a spin-off focusing on Berlin, coming out in 2023. This leads us to an interesting reflection. Why was a character who died in Season 2 and had a few flashbacks throughout the rest of the series, being chosen to return for a separate series? What makes him the ideal pick in the group for a comeback?


The truth is, while there are other suitable characters in the film that deserve to be shot, none of them are as famous for instigating a love-hate relationship with viewers as Berlin. There are plenty of reasons to hate him. His sexist behavior towards Tokyo and Nairóbi (Alba Flores) while taking power inside the bank, taking a creepy hostage as his girlfriend, and threatening to kill Monica (Esther Acebo) after discovering that she had received Arturito’s (Enrique Arce) phone are just a few instances of Berlin being so arrogant and insufferable that it is impossible to take his side. However, when we get to the final case in Season 2, when the gang has to leave with the gold and the police are near the entrance to the vault where they’re going to escape, Berlin does something the viewer doesn’t expect. before can. He is not afraid to give up his life to make sure that his brother and his colleagues can flee and secure a fresh start with a wealth of wealth. It was in that moment that, despite his flaws, the character showed that he cared more about others than himself. As we knew a few episodes earlier, Berlin was terminally ill, and he was only a few months away from his death. Acknowledging that her fate was predetermined, Berlin fearlessly decided to cast aside all possibilities to spend her final days on an accidental island.

Aside from his powerful sacrifice at the end of Season 2 to the sound of “Bella Ciao,” Berlin had a charm to him. Whether it’s the obvious style in which he romanticizes each of his quotes or the way he dresses slickly outside of a bank script, Berlin knows how to make viewers want to know him more. At various points, the character is able to successfully manipulate others with his monologues and eloquent poses. A particular highlight was when they allowed a reporter into the Royal Mint and interviewed him, and Berlin presented a very sympathetic look at who this gang was and why they chose to act. the theft in the first place. In Season 5, we also get to see Berlin’s 007-like reality before the whirlwind of the first heist. At that time he was married to Tatiana (Diana Gomez) and plot to rob the Bank of Spain along with the Professor and Palermo (Rodrigo de la Serna). While Berlin may be the definition of trash in regards to his lifestyle, he’s relentlessly presented himself as a million bucks.

Beyond that, there’s another factor that ultimately draws viewers to Berlin despite his actions: his urge to feel loved. This character can be narcissistic, but deep inside he also has a motivation that anyone can associate with, that is falling head on to face people who are not worthy. When Tatiana put the cards on the table and asked for a divorce because she had found someone else with a greater taste for theft than him, Berlin couldn’t help but feel a twinge in her chest. Things only get worse when he discovers that the new man Tatiana is attracted to is none other than his biological son, Rafael (Patrick Criado). While we know that Berlin would be able to do something similar if the situation were reversed, it’s clear that his kryptonite is love reciprocated. So much so that he was willing to give up his track record of going unpunished by destroying a restaurant and going to jail shortly after.

At the end of the day, there’s a reason why Berlin is both loved and hated by Money Heist fandom in equal numbers. Despite her cold heart and cruel posture in relation to her colleagues and hostages, Berlin is certainly charming, unafraid to accept her disdainful personality, committed to carrying out any plan. as a leader, and he is very comfortable when it comes to romantic pain. The spin-off opportunity will allow the character to be understood on a better scale by exploring his upbringing and how it affected him growing up and adopting a thief lifestyle. While we got to see a bit of his trajectory before he passed away, there’s still a lot to analyze about his complicated point of view and it will also allow fans to love-hate him. it’s more.
