Gandia (played by José Manuel Poga) has been terrorising the team of robbers since the third season of internationally acclaimed Spanish drama, Money Heist. Although he’s back with a vengeance in season five on Netflix after the death of Nairobi (Alba Flores), some fans are convinced the deadly assassin should be out of the picture.
A glaring oversight involving the ruthless villain Gandia has been spotted in the latest season of Money Heist.
The Spanish crime thriller dropped the first half of its fifth and final season at the start of September.
While the series is building up to an epic conclusion, some viewers haven’t been happy with how the final stage of the heist has panned out so far.
One fan took to Reddit recently when they realised Gandia’s appearance at the start of the new outing doesn’t add up.

Gandia seemingly goes from needing immediate medical attention to being back in fighting shape in the space of just a couple of episodes.
Despite sustaining a major spinal injury, he’s able to hold his own in a fistfight with Tokyo and Bogota (Hovik Keuchkerian) in episode two.
Thankfully, the series remained somewhat consistent, as Gandia’s weakened condition meant Tokyo was able to overpower him in Money Heist’s shocking midseason finale.
Both of them have apparently been killed off by Tokyo’s grenades in the final moments of Vol. One, although this fan thinks Gandia’s plot hole has set a dangerous precedent.
They went on: “Really hoping they don’t pull a ‘actually he didn’t blow up in the 2nd half.’”
Money Heist has certainly delivered some outlandish twists over the years, but claiming Gandia was able to survive an explosion at close range might be one step too far.
Viewers were distraught to see Tokyo exit the series, although hopefully the series sticks to its guns this time round and Gandia stays dead for good.
Money Heist Part 5, Vol. 2 will be released on Friday, December 3 on Netflix.
