Summary of Money Heist Season 1 Episode 8
Tokyo surprises Alison chatting with Rio and puts her on the wall. The police believe they were infiltrated by a spy.
All the country’s television channels broadcast the recording of Raquel Murillo, saying that she would rather save Alison than eight hostages. As if that were not enough, the inspector must also explain to her daughter why she should not go to live with her father.
But for the robbers, the plan works wonders: the registration has put a public opinion on their side, which prevents the police from intervening so as not to back off the Spanish population.
This allows robbers to quietly dig the tunnel that will allow them to leave the Factory. The two injured hostages – Arturo and Mónica – are also recovering from their emotions and are gradually recovering. Torres, who prints the tickets, is even elected “hostage of the year”.
But the general euphoria will not last because the police have a plan to recover public opinion and put it by their side: to make Andrés de Fonollosa pass for a former pimp. A few moments later, Raquel learns that Nikolai Dimitrievich, the Russian employee of the scrapyard, is ready to testify and draw up a robot portrait of the Professor. When the Professor learns of this, he starts looking for personal information about him on the Internet in order to use it to threaten him.
The police then decide to speak with a former cellmate from Berlin to obtain information about the robber. He promises to speak only if he is promised a gesture in return. Raquel agrees to do something, and the inmate admits that Berlin obtained Retroxil (a drug) when he was in prison. After this discovery, Ángel undertook to do research in the surrounding pharmacies.
Later, Tokyo surprises Alison and Rio talking in the bathroom and suspects that she is circling around her boyfriend. Besides, Berlin has a discussion with Mercedes who wanted to see Silvia, one of her students excluded from the group: she ends up seeing her gagged in another room. Finally, Nikolai arrives in the police tent to deliver his information.
