December 5, 2021

Aníbal Cortés joins the Royal Mint’s robbery team because of his exceptional computing and hacking skills. When the aliases for the team are chosen, Aníbal becomes Rio. During the preparation period, he and Tokyo enter into a secret love affair, contrary to the professor’s express instructions. After the success of the first heist, Rio and Tokyo spend some time on a Caribbean island, where the authorities eventually find the former. He is then taken to a secret facility in the Algerian desert and tortured by Alicia Sierra.

His arrest causes the gang to regroup and prepare for a second robbery. This time the target is the Bank of Spain and the 90 tons of gold stored there. While Rio is released and reunited with his comrades, Tokyo is killed in a confrontation between her and the military. If you’re wondering if Rio survived the final part of Money Heist, we have the solution for you. SPOILERS AHEAD.

Is Rio Die In Money Heist?

No, Rio doesn’t die in ‘Money Heist’ Season 5 Part 2. Just like the rest of the gang, he gets his passport in the last scene of the series and boards a helicopter with the others. Part 2 starts exactly where the first part ends. Rio is preoccupied with his insurmountable grief. When he learns that Palermo and Lisbon want to negotiate with the remaining soldiers about their surrender, he picks up a rocket launcher and prepares to blow them up. But Lisbon disarms and calms him down and makes him realize that they are all mourning Tokyo.

Rio is gradually regaining control of itself. After the gold has been put in the rainwater tank, he celebrates with the other bank employees and sings Bella Ciao together. However, their joy is soon tarnished when they discover that Berlin’s son Rafael and his former wife Tatiana have stolen the gold. On the orders of the professor, Rio hacked traffic cameras to find the vehicles the thieves were using. When they find nothing, the professor and his team correctly conclude that the recordings have been tampered with.

While the professor and the team in front of the bank are desperately searching for the gold, government forces manage to infiltrate the bank and arrest everyone, including Rio. The professor then arrives at the bank and convinces Tamayo and the Spanish government to accept his terms.

At first it seems like he wants his team’s freedom in exchange for the gold. The government, which is in a financial crisis, accepts. However, the bars he returns to the Bank of Spain are made of brass. Fearing another financial crisis if the truth emerges, the government will let the robbers go with the gold. The public is told that the robbers have died and the military are bringing Rio and the others out of Spain. It was a long journey for the crew. They lost several comrades on the way. But now the survivors are clearly free.
