Money Heist Season 1 Episode 5 Summary
The burglars let doctors enter the building and a police officer infiltrates them. Will the Professor be able to stay one step ahead of Raquel?
While Arturo Román, injured by the police, runs out of blood, the robbers all try one by one to operate on him. Indeed, during the few months in Toledo, the Professor taught them some basics of first aid and anatomy. But training on a body is easier than removing a ball, and the robbers finally decide to wait. On the other hand, Moscow and Denver are trying to operate Mónica, whose thigh still contains the bullet that Denver had shot him.
On the police side, Raquel Murillo decides to take full responsibility for this accident. She then begins a new telephone discussion with the Professor, and the two agree to send a medical team to the Factory. But Raquel is completely destabilized by the accident she has just caused, and her mother comforts her on the phone. The latter also learns that she is dating a man.
Angel Rubio decides to return to the Factory, posing as a nurse with the medical team who came to treat Arturo. At the same time, Suárez and an agent will infiltrate the underground conduits, dressed in red coveralls and masked to mix with the hostages.
Arturo asks to telephone his wife but, nervous, he is mistaken and calls her “Mónica”. When the doctors enter the Factory, the Professor realizes that one of them – Ángel – is a policeman. But he has planned everything and turns the police plan into a Trojan horse: the robbers manage to insert a miniature microphone into Ángel’s glasses while they search. So the Professor can hear everything from the police plan.
We learn that Nairobi has a seven-year-old son, whom she gave birth by caesarean section, but who now lives in foster care. She also plans to go get him to live with him once the robbery is over.
