I watched this the other day, and agree that it was really well done-especially the timeline and the other work Kiki had done to undermine the cartel. The series honestly portrays him as just finding that field in terms of achievements, but he had done so much work, cultivating informants, etc, that the show never really "showed" me why he was this amazing narco, and he really WAS!
I also didn't realize that there was never any TRUE justice for his family for his death, especially in extradition for the people that were arrested in Mexico for his murder. The fact that we had to kidnap the doctor because Mexico wouldn't extradite, and then we had to LET HIM GO was infuriating. Even COLUMBIA extradited drug lords-it was their one trump card against the cartels. The US wasn't messing around, and judges, juries, etc weren't as corrupt or easy to murder here, and the Columbian government kept it as an ace in the hole for narco traffickers.
It's horrifying that US government agents were complicit in his death to cover up the goddamn Contra support. Was there ever a more insignificant country that the US fucked up so much other shit over in history??? (Besides Afghanistan. And Iran. And Vietnam.)
Edited to add: And hey, maybe the show covered all of this, but I found this season rather boring and not as great as the last 4 before it, so if it did say all of this-I missed it. Or forgot it. LOL
