After five seasons, “The Money Heist” (“Money Heist” in English) came to an end on December 3, 2021, closing with a flourish the story of the robbers and the Professor, after five falls, explosions and some bittersweet victories.
The series created by Álex Pina was released for the first time on May 2, 2017 in Spain. Then he made his leap to Netflix, becoming an international furor and launching his actors such as Álvaro Morte (The Professor), Pedro Alonso (Berlin), Úrsula Corberó (Tokyo), among others to fame.
After the end of the Spanish series, it was time to recall some of the questionable decisions that the most famous robber gang in the world made. With so many twists and turns, “Paper House” proved that playing for the same team didn’t always mean being close, as the characters put each other through dire tests, from revealing secrets to shocking betrayals. Here are the 10 worst things the show’s main characters did, according to Screenrant.

This ruthless demand from Berlin showed just how far it is capable of going to maintain control.
5. Alicia was involved in the torture of Rio
Although she did not participate, Alicia watched Rio being tortured. After being denied a trial, Rio spent months captive in a dark and confined space that was so small that he could only stand. Furthermore, she saw how Rio was forced to dig his own grave in which he was later buried alive.

After losing connection with the Professor, Tokyo goes off the rails and is about to kill Berlin. When he is released, Berlin retaliates by tying Toyko to a table and taking her out of the Royal Mint to hand her over to the police. Although Tokyo’s actions were reckless, this was the worst kind of punishment Berlin could have given him.
2. Alicia used the son of Nairobi against her
Knowing that her son is her weakness, Alicia found Axel and led him out of the bank to lure Nairobi to the window. As Nairobi is distracted by seeing her son, Alicia ordered a sniper to shoot her.

1. Palermo betrayed the team
