Goofs

When the Marine Colonel is talking to Pena at the car, we get a look at his ribbons. They are in the exact reverse order of precedence. For example, the bottom three ribbons (L-R) are Navy/Marine Commendation Medal, Bronze Star, and Silver Star. These should be on the top row and flipped in order to be correct. The entire set of ribbons is backwards. See more »

Unresolved ending
11 September 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Watching this episode, I don't understand why people were anxious whether or not this show was going to get a second season. Of course, it had to be renewed: there was no ending. This episode was only a transition in that Escobar turned to a new part of his life, while Colombia too found a way out from its seemingly eternal cocaine problem.

Agent Murphy has changed the most, even more than Escobar himself. He slowly turned into a psycho, thinking that in order to catch the bad guy you yourself have to become a bad guy. He's drifting away from his wife; he judges his partner and his friend.

Whatever you do, wherever you do it, there's always someone that could trace what you did. And you're in trouble, especially when you know you did something wrong, something illegal. But the worst part is when not caring about it and thinking that it is okay, that you deserve to get away with it. The salvation is far from you in that moment. In the end, you end up alone.

There were no submarines showed in the show as it more emphasized on the gringos-narcos relationship than on the trade itself. The smart and the family-oriented sides of Escobar were portrayed, but also his evil and, later in the season, paranoid side. He was, after all, a criminal who enjoyed to spill blood.
