Cali Cartel is how you're suppose to operate out of the spotlight, get all attention away from you and operate within the shadows. Pablo fucked up by running for congressman, start of the downhill.

The show made it feel like Pablo sold drugs not just for financial gain, but for the resources to garner influence and respect/fear. The Cali Cartel is/was all about the money.

Anyone wonder what happened to La Quica? Guy talked so much but ended up being a huge bitch lol.

Anyways, loved this season. I wonder how S3 is going to be without Escobar.

War on Drugs is not all about Escobar, they could milk a few seasons if the audience is there. They could move to another location/ continent, like the Gold Triangle in SE Asia. Or continue with the Cali Cartel.

Also keep in mind, the show is mixed fiction so there are characters that don't exist in real life, and some get killed off even thought they live.

Would be nice if they did included the stuff that went down in Miami and NYC in future episodes. Would be cool if they did a season on Griselda Blanco.

i hope they pull it off. the cali cartel guys weren't particularly interesting to me because they seemed very one dimensioned, typical drug lord types.

totally sympathised with Escobar, he started off as Robin Hood building schools and helping the poor... but that amount of money/popularity/power would get to any man's head

the really fucked up thing I thought was the police and Steve Murphy posing for pictures with Escobar's corpse. They weren't arresting a criminal anymore, this was a prized buck and everybody wanted a picture with it.... who's the monster here?

Even savages have families and have the ability to love - they are humans, like us, after all. And because they are human, they are capable of doing good, but are also capable of doing evil. The show does really well in making viewers question the traditional spectrum of right and wrong, especially in parts where we see Pablo doing very human things, like being a husband, father, and provider. What potentially can freak people out is the fact that, while Pablo was an extreme mass murderer, there were times he was also a very sympathetic and relatable figure. His longing for a home and his family, for example, were all emotions that viewers could easily relate to. His time at his father's farm, as well, showed a very human vulnerability that completely shed his aura of invincibility. Pablo's death was undoubtedly deserved. But you can't help but think at the end of it all that, "damn, Pablo was human too".

Pablo was a piece of shit and he and his family deserved no mercy. He also cared more about himself then his family.

finally finished it

felt like the whole season dragged on because pretty much everyone who was watching knew the end game...i still think the first season covered so much so fast, left the 2nd season a little longer than it should have been

While i think it's a bit messed up re posing with Pablo's corpse, you have to understand the context of it. This was a legendary guy, who at his empire's height essentially owned Medellin. Committed assassinations, terrorism, while seemingly able to slip away when it seemed like the roof was going to cave in on him. To the guys posing, it IS like taking down that legendary buck that no one could catch. These guys put in blood, sweat and tears, lost friends in the line of duty and/or family in the shit storm that Pablo created. So I'd be hard-pressed to call em monsters. Hell, I'd do bunny ears around that motherfucker's bloodied head if I was one of those guys who's put in the work in catching him.

To them catching Pablo was like taking Sadam or Moammar Gadhafi. or the allies taking Berlin. we cant relate to it.
