A Dramatic Cliffhanger at The End of Episode 9 of Queen of The South Season 5’s Fifth Episode Has Left Viewers Wondering “did Teresa Mendoza Die?”
*Warning: Spoilers ahead*
It was one of the most dramatic cliffhangers yet in season 5 of Queen of the South.
The moment Teresa Mendoza is shot by a sniper is eventually seen in the first episode of season 1.
Do we really know what happened to Teresa, the titular Queen of the South, at the close of last week’s dramatic episode?
Is There a Death Certificate for Teresa Mendoza?
It is implied that Teresa had died in episode 9, yet it is later discovered that she is still alive.
The murder of Teresa in Queen of the South has been teased since the series’ very first episode, and it looks like the cartel queen is killed off in episode 9 of season 5 in this episode.
A few moments after proclaiming his love for her in the episode, it is revealed that James shot Teresa.
Fans will be heartbroken to see Teresa’s body lying in a mortuary in the promo clip for episode 10, which suggests that her demise is all but guaranteed.
Fans of Queen of the South were left wondering if Teresa’s death was a deception and whether she would make a dramatic return in the show’s last episode.
Teresa was proven to be alive and well in episode 10 when she was found living in an exquisite seaside mansion.
Fans Comment on Episode Nine
The episode 9 cliffhanger left many Queen of the South fans stunned, and many took to social media to express their feelings.
“Now why James took out my girl Teresa like that,” commented one Twitter follower. Why what the f*** going on here? Queen of the South’s upcoming episode must either feature Teresa’s survival or someone else’s demise like Lafayette’s.
As for Teresa’s death, “Queen of the South has me irritated with that episode,” said another. Teresa will not be going out like this. In the episode prior to the season finale, they wouldn’t offer the main character a 30-second death scene. Who knows what the future holds?”
“Teresa is a survivor, I don’t believe we’ll be without Teresa in the final episode,” said one admirer. Teresa is supreme in the South! Teresa’s story doesn’t finish this way for me.
