10 Questions That Narcos: Mexico Season 2 Needs To Answer

Chivis Martinez Borderland Beat  Source



Narcos: Mexico season two is coming soon and there are a lot of questions we want answering about Félix, and associates. Here are the most pressing.

The second season of Narcos: Mexico is set to be released on Netflix on February 13th. The series tells the stories of key drug lords in Mexico's history. Currently, the focus is on Miguel Félix Gallardo, the ambitious boss of the Guadalajara Cartel who started out as a police officer and rose to be the biggest Mexican drug lord in the 80s.

Narcos: Mexico is a spinoff of the original Narcos which chronicled the lives of Colombian kingpins Pablo Escobar and the Orejuela brothers of the Cali Cartel. Diego Luna will reprise his role as Félix in the new season while there will be several new characters, including Scott McNair as DEA agent Walt Breslin.

Here are questions that the second season of Narcos: Mexico needs to answer.


10: Does Félix Cancel The Deals With Escobar And The Cali Cartel?

In the first season, the ambitious Felix grew tired of the marijuana business. Since he had better distribution channels to the United States than any other drug lord in the whole of Latin America, he traveled to Colombia to make a proposal to the Cali Cartel. He offered to ship their cocaine into America via Mexico and a deal was struck.

However, before he could leave Medellin, Escobar's sicarios kidnapped him and took him to their boss. Escobar demanded to be included in the deal too... or else. Félix had initially avoided Escobar because of his temper but now he had no choice but to work with him. Will he manage to free himself from these deals without consequences? In the trailer for Season 2, Félix is heard saying, "The Colombians are no longer in charge, it's my turn."

9: What's The Status Of Rafa?

One of the most interesting characters in Season One was Rafael Caro Quintero, popularly known as Rafa. He started the marijuana business with Félix and the two went on to be very successful. He also invented the special strain of drought-resistant weed popularly known as sensiminia.

However, Rafa was careless and liked living large. He became addicted to drugs and couldn't think of anything else other than his new lover. When things got heated, Félix felt that Rafa might cause their downfall so he set up a hideout for him in Costa Rica. However, Commander Guillermo Calderoni tracked him down and arrested him. Will he snitch? Will he find a way back into the business?

8: Did Commander Guillermo Calderoni Take Félix's Bribe?

In the Colombian story, Colonel Carillo was the man who gave Escobar sleepless nights. Sadly, he was tricked into an ambush and shot by the drug kingpin. In the Mexico story, there is a dedicated and incorruptible law enforcement officer just like Carillo. His name is Commander Guillermo Calderoni.

In the season finale, Calderoni managed to corner Félix and arrest him but was forced to free him after the drug lord vowed to expose the no-nonsense cop's superiors via a series of audiotapes. He also offered him a bribe of $2 million. Later on, we saw Félix as a free man. So did Calderoni take the bribe or did he just release Felix because he feared that his bosses might have a problem with him if he took Félix into custody?


7: Is Maria Gone For Good?

If you value happy marriages and relationships, you won't like Félix at all. After he grew wealthy from the cocaine business, he began neglecting his wife Maria Elvira de Félix and disrespecting her. He even got his mistress pregnant and she came to know about it.

Maria was also initially supportive of her husband when he was only dealing with marijuana but grew to despise him after he dipped his face into the world of white powder. She eventually ended up moving out with the kids and Félix didn't seem bothered at all. Will she be back?

6: How Far Will Walt And The New DEA Team Go?

In the season finale, we were introduced to Walt Breslin (Scott McNair), a new DEA agent bringing weapons to Mexico to officially kickstart Operation Leyenda. In real life, this was an operation meant to destroy the cartels and also seek revenge for DEA agent Kiki Camarena's murder.

The former DEA team preferred doing things by the book but how far will Walt and his team go? In the trailer for Season 2, Walt was shown kidnapping a cartel member and torturing him for information. So, obviously, there is no playing nice. Will it be an all-out war?

5: Who Else Is Involved?

In the first season, there were people higher up in government, including members of the DFS, who were involved in the drug trade. Some of these people had a hand in Kiki's death. Félix also threatened to expose them when he was briefly arrested. But who are the conspirators?

What if the rot goes as high up as the president's office? In the Season 2 trailer, Felix says "The DEA will try to stop us but they won't manage." Does this mean he has total protection from the government? Will the Mexican government frustrate the DEA till they give up?

4: How Long Before El Chapo And Fuentes Take Over?

In Season One, El Chapo was introduced as a driver and a junior trafficker. We all know the man he becomes in the future but how long will we have to wait before we see El Chapo as the boss of the Sinaloa Cartel. Season Two should at least develop his character more in preparation for his greater years.

Perhaps we won't even get to see his story on Narcos: Mexico at all given that there's already another Netflix series that covers his rise and fall. But again, there is also a low-budget Pablo Escobar series on Netflix called El Patron Del Mal, yet we still got his story on Narcos. No reason to despair then. There's also Amado Carillo Fuentes who is a junior trafficker in the first season. In real life, he grew to be the notorious leader of the Juarez Cartel.

3: Will The Plaza Bosses Work Well With Félix?

Félix came to be known as the boss of bosses or "El Padrino" (The Godfather) after he convinced all other cartel leaders in Mexico to work with him in what came to be known as the 'Plaza System.' Plazas referred to different territories ran by different cartels.

When he was arrested, the other bosses held a meeting to plan how to move forward without him but he crashed their party with an army of Mexican soldiers after negotiating his release. They obviously weren't too happy to see him. So, will they still work under him without any problems?

2: Which New Alliances Will Félix Make?

By the end of Season One, Félix had fallen out with his key lieutenants Don Neto and Rafa. He even engineered their arrests. He also fell out with Isabella, the woman who helped him seal the cocaine deal with the Cali Cartel. She went on to set up the failed meeting where the agenda was to replace him.

His governor friend also betrayed him and in return, Félix beheaded his son. It appears Félix has no close friends/associates at the moment. Even his wife left him. But he still has the power so it will be interesting to see who he works with.

1: Who Are Félix's Distributors In The US

Unlike the Colombian story, the Mexican story hasn't placed much focus on the US so far. Only the character of Félix's lawyer based in the US was explored. In Narcos, we were shown the men that were managing Escobar and the Cali Cartel's operations in the US.

Given that he has the best distribution channels into America, it would be fitting for the second season to at least shed some light on Félix's network there. Why does his transportation system work better than that of anyone else? Does he have guys at the border? Does he have guys in Miami? New York? We hope to find out.

    1. This show isn’t suppose to tell the real stories or be informative, just a quick overview into one season for entertainment.

    2. He had His own independent organization at this time and was not apart of Miguel angels cartel. They did not go to war so it wouldn’t fit into the storyline. A better story would be CDG’s

  6. I have nothing but contempt for narcos. No interest in the "history" of who was a drug lord or when. They are/were all shit for what they have done to Mexico. As a student, I lived in the home of a Mexican family in DF. Parents and 4 kids, 12 to 6 yrs old. Barely making ends meet but the most honest, welcoming, loving, warm people you could ever hope to know. I've lost contact with them but I treasure the memories. Narcos?...eat shit and die.

  8. At the top of my wishlist for S02 is an improved plot from S01.. I don't wanna see the producers rushing through the timeline in 2 seasons.. . If everybody on that show did their research then all pieces should fall into place on their own.

  12. Miguel Angel Felix Gallardo did not need to have contacts in the US, that was covered by long time US businessmen, banksfers and associates, lots of mexicans suddenly started pushing cocaine and grifa like there was no end to it, the US government increased food stamps and welfare checks for approved clients, it was the Reagan Age, full of republican sentiment against welfare queens, but more money was needed to "send help to the Contra Nicaragüense..." that help got lost but found it's way to the Cayman Islands and other venues of money laundering and was invested in take overs and offshoring of american jobs.
    Like El Chapo, gallardo just m ok ves everybody's crap north, where oliver north and Felix Ismael Rodriguez Mendigutia had it all under control, they even had records and papers Oliver North's helper Fawn Hall had to secret out for burning and destruction, may even had to eat some to save every body's ass...
    Fawn Hall also seduced Dr Calero's son to keep a line to the respectable contras on their side.
    Logistics is not necessarily production or distribution, much less collections or laundry service, specially not at that magnitude, real life drama is a lot more interesting Chivis, much as I loved The Godfather, they could not pack more than 70 years of Italian Mobsters in the 3 part series, same thing for mexican or colombian narcos or their accomplice "US rogue agents" working their Black Math and Voodoo Economics influenced reaganomics from the Whites' House.

  14. Re Rafa: @Chivis do you think they'll reveal that he was eventually let go? I felt like they downplayed Rafa's role in Camarena's murder in the first season, and wondered if they might not mention it since it would make the recent government look bad. Might be a conspiracy theory, but I'm curious what your thoughts are.

  15. Unbelievable that mexican mothafucka already had mexican soldiers working for him. & that was in the 80's?

    ReplyDelete
  16. I like that they included former Ojinaga plaza boss, Pablo Acosta Villarreal, in Season One. The more obscure Mexican drug lords tend to be more interesting studies—such as Pedro Aviles Perez, who was briefly (but effectively) touched upon in Season One as well.

    Good casting choice on the Acosta role, too—the actor portraying Acosta is his doppelgänger.

    M.F.

  17. low budget series called "el patron del mal" thats how I know you've been in the gabacho too long, there was nothing low budget about that original colombian series, "el patron del mal" was adapted from a book called "La Parabola de Pablo Escobar" written by Alonso Salazar which detailed the rise and fall of Pablo and the medellin cartel and is much more true to actual events beyond the measly two seasons and tall tales spun by Netflix's "Narcos"

    1. As much as I wish he would, I doubt it. 40 became relevant in the late 90’s early 00’s. I think the new season is gonna be based in the early 90’s.
