What is Narcos: Mexico about — and what happened in the season 1 finale?
The series follows the establishment of the modern Mexican drugs trade, focusing on real-life narco Felix Gallardo, a former Sinaloan police officer turned drug lord, and Kiki Camarena, a Mexican-American DEA (Drug Enforcement Administration) agent tasked with taking Felix down.
The season followed the two men’s cat and mouse game, which ended in the abduction, torture and murder of Kiki, whose death ultimately served as a catalyst in the war on drugs.
The finale also finally revealed the identity of the show’s narrator: Scoot McNairy as agent Walt Breslin, a DEA agent in charge of Operation Layenda, a task force that worked to bring to justice those responsible for Kiki’s death — and the focus of Narcos: Mexico season two.
“What happened in Guadalajara in the early ’80s was the beginning,” Breslin says in voiceover. “What happened in Guadalajara gave birth to the first cartel. From that, others would follow. And the violence and money and drugs, they just fucking explode. It changed the DEA, too. Maybe it woke us up, I don’t know. But it’s where the first shot was fired, the one that started the drug war. And after that, none of it would be the same. How could it be?
“We knew we were in a war,” he says at the end of the episode. “Now, it was our turn. Pretty soon, they were gonna know, they were in one too.”
The way I see it.... the more people that don't like me, the less people I have to please
Thanks, Mica! I watched a few episodes of Narcos but need to finish it.
Do you think they’ll ever do a season on the Gulf Cartel? I’m interested to see if they did any research on the 1930s thru 1980s and it’s players: Juan N. Guerra, El Cacho, El Profe, Juan Garcia Abrego, etc.
