La Reina del Sur on NBC Universo
Saturday nights, 3 episodes starting at 9pm/8c on October 13.
So far, so good--last week was episodes 1-3. We're watching episode 4 now.
Just let me know how long until you are singing or humming that ear worm of a theme song . . . 🤣
Oh, it's not me. Mr. 5ft knows about every fourth word. 🙂
Despite the misleading episode descriptions, the show did not back up. This weekend was episodes 13-15.
13: The stolen truck turns out to be full of hashish. Teresa trades it to Chaib for Mohammed's papers and for the adults to stay out of jail. Dris re-hires Teresa. She finally attends one of the infamous "parties," promising Santiago if he wants a career as a narco, she'll get him one.
14: Teresa sleeps with Chaib and gets Santiago a job transporting hashish. Dris is obsessed with Teresa and starts following her around. He tips off the authorities about a shipment Santiago and Lalo are transporting.
15: Santiago gets away, but Lalo is thrown in prison. Chaib cuts ties with Teresa. Santiago comes back after a month hiding out and asks Teresa to move to Algeciras with him.
Only two episodes recorded on the DVR this weekend.
Episode 16: Teresa moves to Algeciras with Santiago and starts learning about boats, radar, and how to lander money through Gibraltar. She and Santiago are in the same restaurant as Jaime Arenas and Patricia O'Farrell when the Russians come in looking for Jaime.
Episode 17: Yasikov and the Russians keep looking for Pati and Jaime. Jaime explains that he and his "partners" stole a ton of coke from the Russians. His partners' half-ton gets found and confiscated by the police. Teresa and Santiago start making runs together. Fatima comes for a visit.
Last weekend our DVR skipped
Episode 18: Santiago was all insecure about Güero and proposed to Teresa. The Russians tracked down Jaime and killed him, leaving Patricia for dead.
This weekend's episodes had recording issues as well
Episode 19: Pati gets out of the hospital and goes to prison. Dris sets Santiago up to get busted during a delivery, but Santiago crashes the boat and dies. Teresa is sentenced to five years in the same prison where Pati's serving her sentence.
And whenever we get around to watching them on the DVD I can tell you what 20 and 21 are, but I think Teresa's in prison for both of them.
Teresa was in prison for quite a few episodes wasn't she?
And I've forgotten if anyone mentioned this, but is the assumption that LRDS2 will premiere when this rerun is done?
That's definitely my theory. I mean, it would make sense to show a marathon of Season 1 before premiering Season 2. But then why did they not do more to advertise it? Maybe it means nothing.
And we know the networks don't operate on any kind of logic.
Episode 20: Fatima finds out Eddie has stolen everything from Santiago and Teresa. Conejo teaches Teresa about the ins and outs of the prison. Teresa makes an enemy out of her first cellmate and moves in with Pati.
Episode 21: Conejo sets up a library with books donated by Pati. Pati and Makoki fight over a new prisoner, Adriana. Before the library can open, Makoki burns it down with Teresa and Adriana inside. Pati uses the ventilation shaft to get Teresa out, but Adriana doesn't make it.
