Palmero constantly maintained that he is a part of the heist as a tribute to Berlin.
Money Heist part 5 - Palmero.
Money Heist season 2 part 1 ended with Tokyo dying and killing the lead antagonist Gandia along with her. Professor, too, was taken hostage by Alicia. Now, Netflix has released a clip from part 2 of season 5, in which Palmero is seen taking control of the situation.
Lisbon/Raquel informs Denver, Rio, Shockholm/Monica, Manila and of course, Palmero, that Professor has 'disappeared'. This angers the anyway short-tempered Denver but not long after that, Palmero takes control of the situation.
He refuses to participate in any discussion and states that the heist will only end once the gold is out. His attitude angers everyone and of course, once again Denver snides back with sarcasm.
Watch the clip here:
Interestingly, it appears that Lisbon had actually kept Benjamin on hold. He was seen in a shot, overhearing the whole conversation and situation.
For the uninitiated, Benjamin is currently working closely with the Professor. He had come to rescue the Professor from Alicia but ended up becoming her hostage too instead. He, Professor and Marseille helped Alicia deliver her baby girl after which she softened up to them.
Currently, Professor knows about Tokyo's death and is on a mission to take revenge for her demise. The death came at a time when everyone was still mourning Nairobi and almost losing Helsinki.
