    Really though... How are you gonna spoil a show that's dramatically retelling a historical event

    No spoilers is retarded

    I remember some of the major events. The storming of the Palace, the presidential campaign with the plane blowing up and his escape from prison. Most of the other smaller details tho are not something I would know.
    I think the spoilers are more for those of us who haven't seen an episode and want the element of surprise.

    See he gets it. Plus I was 9 when he was killed, and I barely remember jack shit from back then, much less anything Pablo related. All this shit is new to me, basically, although I already knew he was dead.

    Enjoyed s2 but thought things really inched to a crawl unpleasantly in the last couple of episodes.

    Pleased that they clearly have plans to continue telling the story.

    Anyone else a little annoyed at the number of times they "surround" him on two sides with 100 men so that he can walk or drive away?

    Don't know why you need to have spoilers

    Do like me and not open the thread until you've seen it

    Anyways, loved this season. That real life pic with Murphy and Pablo was the tits

    I enjoyed the scenes with Pablo on the farm with his dad. He seemed content but his ego even got the best of him with his dad.

    The whole concept of him hiding, but just being on the outskirts of Med, is silly. It would be like the most wanted man in Los Angeles staying in Santa Monica. But that about sums up Colombia and Pablo.

    He had plenty of places in Colombia (towns, mountains, jungles). They also allude to it in the book. He just didn't want to run. Which got his bro in law killed, i.e. silly. That's just classic Pablo. Do what ever his stubborn ass wants. At the same time, his capture was inevitable. I don't blame him for living normal in those final days.

    Actually there is a line from a chief or something about him being so pompous to not even hide more than a few miles from where all your crimes are happening.

    I believe the police search guy in the show is not the actual guy that lead the search. I think the search cop was there the whole time and not killed, if I remember correctly.

    i agree he didn't want to run, but he didn't exactly have hideouts outside of antioquia (the state where medellin is located)

    except that didn't really happen. he was moving from hideout to hideout in his final days. i also don't think his manpower situation was as dire in real life as it was on the show.

    Well my point is that he could have put in a better effort for hiding. This was my thought before the show. Ppl will say with the right amount of money you can disappear, etc but he didn't even try. I'm rooting for him to high tail it to Panama and i know it never happens :(

    agreed. besides arrogance and pride, he probably felt like he had too much to lose from a financial aspect to run away.

    Did I get the impression he was running low on cash at one one point? Not low but as if x millions was too much to pay for something? I forget what scene.
