Nairobi, who has taken control from Berlin, explains to the Professor how the heist has gone terribly wrong: Tokyo played Russian roulette with Berlin, who then turned her in to the police; Berlin nearly executed Rio; and Helsinki brought an end to Oslo’s suffering. The Professor then has two conversations with Raquel: first as himself, then as Salva.
Helsinki locks Rio with the other hostages. Alison hugs him. Arturo explains that it is important to try to escape when the robbers are at their weakest. Rio suggests that he swap a fake gun with a real one of the gang. Raquel brings Salva home to her mother and daughter. She thanks him for showing her ex-husband his place. Berlin agrees to abide by Nairobi. He explains what Plan Chernobyl is: releasing €1 billion from the sky over Madrid, and then disappearing altogether amid the resulting chaos.
Arturo gets the keys to the office where fake guns are kept, and crawls towards it. As Nairobi wants Torres (who prints the banknotes) to increase the rate of production, he goes to the office and finds Arturo hiding there. Arturo taunts him about his job, but Torres ignores him and returns to Nairobi. Salva tells Raquel about wanting to fulfil his father’s dream of making the best cider, before envisioning a life with her family in the Caribbean. Arturo returns with a fake gun and gives it to Mónica.
The Professor informs Raquel that he wants to release eleven hostages. He wants her to make the offer to journalists to cover the release live. It is shown in flashback how the Professor, with the example of a football match between Brazil and Cameroon, explains how humans tend to support the underdog. Now Nairobi enters Plan Cameroon, wherein she asks Berlin to be interviewed as the hostages are released, so that the public can feel the pain of the robbers.
Raquel believes that the interview is a trap to deter the police. She wants to set the trap by announcing that Ángel, the one person who knew who was helping the robbers from outside, will wake up from his coma, and then infiltrating the hospital before the culprit can kill him. Denver calls Mónica to his room for her treatment. She swaps the fake gun for Denver’s real one. Raquel explains her plan of moving Ángel to a different part of the hospital, then setting up two agents to pose as hospital staff to trap the intruder.
A TV crew enters the mint while Raquel instructs the escorts to follow them until they enter. Berlin leads them to the eleven hostages who will be released, then tells them that he and his comrades want to surrender, acknowledging that the robbers have lost. A police team guides the hostages to safety. Berlin shows Oslo’s corpse to the TV crew as proof of the robbers’ defeat. He confesses that he has never sold another person, despite rumours by the police. Breaking down, he blames the police for lying to the public and defaming his family.
The Professor assures Nairobi that he will rescue Tokyo from jail come what may. Berlin tells him that the news of Ángel’s possible recovery is a trap. The Professor knows too well that police agents are lying in wait for him at the hospital, and plans to divert them from there.
