In Narcos Mexico Season 2, we had all seen how the empire of Felix had slowly turned towards a cliff as his ambitions, and all his expenditures knew no bounds.
Several questionable decisions were taken after the death of Hector Palma’s better half. All these bring the question of whether Felix is any longer fit to run this big organization.
The creators try to bring in a fast-paced decision but deep down, all the viewers know that the reality is more brutal than the fictional part of things. Felix has a wish to get hold of the market in Colombia and then make a secure economic corridor between the United States and Mexico. But things start happening, which Felix had not expected.
Maria throws out Felix from the house, and he finally has to take a backseat. This leads to the plaza boss dividing into several fractions and hence formed the Juarez cartel, Sinaloa Cartel, and Tijuana Cartel. This is not just the end of mishaps for Felix.
He is soon arrested, and things start getting worse. However, a ray of hope can be found when Walt Breslin gets reassigned and confronts Felix, who is behind bars.
Narcos Mexico Season 3 shall dig further into the history of what will become the world’s largest empire of drugs under the command of El Chapo. We will also see Isabella Bautista being held by the cops after the Arellano Felix brothers gave them the order to do so.
