Twitter goes crazy after Netflix's 'Money Heist' introduces Islamabad plot line

The show lauds Pakistanis for being 'geniuses' and a lot more

Entertainment Desk July 20, 2019


The third season of Netflix's Money Heist was heartbreaking and  exciting at the same time. Heartbreaking since Rio (Miguel Herrán) was captured by the police in the first episode, exciting because the whole gang (well, the remaining of it) came back together to rescue him from a torture cell.

The last two minutes of the first episode showed €140 million showering from the sky as a sign to let the public know they were back.

The second episode of the show however gets even more exciting as we find out about the heist's Islamabad connection.  It is revealed that a team of 65 members based in Islamabad is helping the Professor (Álvaro Morte) track the data he and his team needs to fight the war.

“With money to invest in R&D, you can achieve wonderful things. 3 weeks prior to the heist, we were inside both the CNI’s and the police’s mobile phone apps like WhatsApp," Tokyo (Úrsula Corberó) narrates as we see a group of people engrossed in their laptops.

"We can activate their microphones, cameras and GPS. It took less than an hour to take over the defense staff’s telecommunications. The work Rio used to do was now done by 65 Pakistanis. They are geniuses, thanks to them, we had access to everything.”

While the claim to our 'genius' might seem debatable and problematic to some, Twitter is largely celebrating this mention.
