In a trailer for the Money Heist final season, the Professor has gone missing, and there are a few options for his whereabouts. In the first look at Money Heist season 5, part 2, also known as La Casa de Papel, Lisbon (Itziar Ituño), Palmero (Rodrigo de la Serna), Denver (Jaime Lorente), and the rest of the gang contemplate the Professor’s (Álvaro Morte) disappearance and what to do with their melted gold inside the Bank of Spain. Palmero wants to get the gold out, but the others don’t seem sure, thinking the police could be privy to the escape route. Unfortunately, Palmero isn’t interested in “democracy” and insists their scheme goes ahead as planned.The first part of Money Heist season 5 included several shocking twists and lingering questions. Inspector Alicia Sierra (Najwa Nimri) captures the Professor in the season 5 premiere, but her pregnancy changes her plans. She eventually lets the Professor go to help deliver her baby, leaving her allegiance to the Professor or her government up in the air. Additionally, Money Heist seemingly killed off a significant character in the first part of its final season. However, the true fate of the individual could still be a mystery.The Professor’s disappearance is surprising in the Money Heist trailer. Lisbon hears about the Professor’s disappearance off-camera (or he doesn’t respond to her call), and then she delivers the news matter-of-factly in the season 5 video. According to her, the Professor is missing, and the big question is what to do with the gold. While the others looked shocked, Denver is the only one who speaks up, questioning where the professor could’ve gone. However, Lisbon offers no solid explanations. Though the Professor’s disappearance is odd, there could be an obvious reason.
If the Professor is missing, there is one likely saboteur. At the end of part 1 of the final season, there are questions about Alicia Sierra’s loyalty. Though her government disgraced her name and she let the Professor help deliver her baby, she also slips into the restroom and seemingly hides a small pair of scissors in her sleeve as a weapon. Before her baby’s birth, she wanted to bring the Professor and his accomplices to justice. But instead, she let him go out of necessity. So if the Professor is in trouble, Sierra has to be the prime suspect.
Alternatively, there could be more to the Professor’s disappearance than meets the eye. It’s unknown if the Professor is actually missing in the first look for part 2. For instance, the disappearance could be part of the plan. If Money Heist has taught fans anything, it’s that the Professor is always planning. Also, the trailer has Denver question if the Professor is in the “Bermuda Triangle.” The Professor previously mentioned the Bermuda Triangle in part 1 of the final season. “Madrid isn’t the Bermuda Triangle,” he said while discussing how to hide Marseille (Luka Peroš) and a helicopter from the police. That plan involved significant deception, and the Professor’s disappearance likely does too.
