Queen of the South Season 5 Episode 4 Preview
Queen of the South Season 5 Episode 4 titled “La Situacion” will follow after Teresa fights her own men. When Boaz Jiminez went on a rampage, he ended up killing Judge Lafayette. But in a hot moment, Queenpin has Dumas to blame for the murder. With that, Teresa began to lose the trust of some of her closest friends. Of course they would, because they were as loyal to him as Dumas; Even so, we saw Teresa throw him under the bus. Trust had fallen so much that even James Valdes began to question his decision to return. Teresa’s actions were outrageous, considering that Marcel Dumas was one of the most trusted people on the streets of New Orleans. Now with Boaz still out and Marcel behind bars, Teresa had to do something fast.
If we follow the promos for the next episode, there is a high chance that Marcel Dumas can still reach an agreement with Teresa. He may be jailed for judge beheading, but he still has a trick up his sleeve. Tensions have risen in the last ongoing season, and some solutions need to be thought of quickly. Fans refuse to believe that Teresa would do anything like that without a backup plan. This makes us wonder if Teresa and Marcel are up to something off camera. Nevertheless, we do know that Teresa regrets her actions, considering that she did visit him in prison. Dumas never really made it into Teresa’s inner circle, but she had enough information to bring down her kingdom. So surely, Teresa wanted Dumas to be on her bright side and help her out.
