Review: Narcos Episode 10 “Despegue”

While the final action sequence/raid was brilliantly directed and shot, filled with intensity and high stakes, the rest of the episode lack urgency and drama, with some characters being either sidelined or having subplots, that may have ramifications in season two, but had little impact here, leading to them being essentially pointless at this stage, distracting from the main event, though the scenes with Escobar were rivetting, due to Moura’s sensational performance and the witty, fast paced dialogue. 8.5/10
