Why did they kill Nairobi money heist?

Nairobi was killed to make the story more interesting.

Money Heist is one of my favourite series of all time. The first two seasons were kickass, there was absolutely no way the story could get any better. But then came Money heist season 3, which was good but nothing compared to the previous two seasons.

Is Nairobi dead in money heist?

Yes, Nairobi dies in Money Heist.

But the fourth season killed it, with the intensity and the plot. Up until the end of the third season, the professor was playing it safe. Keeping things simple, doing just enough to keep all operations moving. But Nairobi’s death in Money Heist changed everything.

Her death made Professor more intense. They woke up the sleeping lion. Which they shouldn’t have. Thus intensifying the heist. The professor wasn’t that attached to everyone during the the first heist as he was during the second one.

By the time, they finished the heist, got together, partied, the professor grew more closer to the gang than ever. He was someone who never liked getting attached. Quoting Tokyo,  at the end of the day, love is a good reason for all things to fall apart.

Money Heist Nairobi’s Death

la casa de papel quotes

Personally, Nairobi was one of the most badass characters in the entire series. She always got the cogs moving. Right from the first season, she was always there to calm things down when people around her lost their shit. From Allison Parker to Tokyo, she was there for everyone.

In Money Heist season 4, despite being injured she asked Bogota to go help others. Thus risking herself in the operation, which eventually led to her death. But before she died, she pulled out a grenade, thus taking the commander down with her. Even in her final moments she was a true hero. A hero the world needs. Risking her own life to save the lives of others.

But that’s not all. She always she stayed strong. No matter what. Even during difficult times, she motivated others. Especially, the moment where she motivated all the miners. She lost her son, but still stood up and moved ahead in life. That’s what made her worthy of respect. Personally Nairobi killed it in season 4 of Money Heist.

Nairobi and Berlin : The similarities

How I wish, we could’ve seen more of her in the upcoming seasons, but we’ll have to limit it at this unfortunately. Unless, she pops up like Berlin did in the new seasons. She was similar to Berlin in multitude of ways. Like Berlin she risker her own life for others, without a second thought. Like Berlin she gave her 100%. Not to forget, despite the masks they wore, they were pretty emotional inside. Dealing with their own trauma on a day to day basis. She was a true warrior.

Nairobi’s Death : The lens of a reviewer

From a cinematic perspective, the story got all intense thanks to Nairobi’s death. The story is more personal now than ever. Just like season 1, we know that there’s no way to pull of a heist without injuring someone. And plans can all go wrong, no matter what. Despite the nail biting ending, the series is going to be one hell of a ride when the fifth season comes out, which will be around 2021 considering the current scenario.

Personally I hate the fact that Nairobi died. She was one of the members, who made the story more intense with her speeches and stares. We won’t be able to see more of that unfortunately.

Do you think Nairobi’s death was justified? Do let me know about it in the comments.
