Is Rodolfo Dead or Alive in Who Killed Sara? – Who Killed Sara? (Spanish: Quién mató a Sara?) is a Netflix original Mexican mystery thriller series written by José Ignacio Valenzuela and produced by Perro Azul that premiered on March 24, 2021. Manolo Cardona plays Lex Guzmán, a man wrongfully convicted of the murder of his sister, a crime he did not commit. Season 2 premiered on May 19, 2021, two months after the first season. The Season 3 premiere date is given towards the end of the Season 2 ending credits.
The series follows Lex Guzmán (Manolo Cardona), who is hellbent on finding out who killed his sister Sara and exacting revenge on the Lazcano family who wronged him after serving 18 years in prison for a crime he did not commit.
As Sara’s death is linked to progressively alarming conspiracies, what begins as a relatively simple mystery becomes a convoluted exercise in plot twists. Things start to get violent after a while, as several key characters meet their untimely deaths. Season 3 is difficult to say the least, with Rodolfo fighting for his life at one point.
So, what happens to the Lazcano siblings, who are the oldest? Let’s have a look.
Is Rodolfo Alive or Dead?
Rodolfo is arguably one of the most tormented characters in the show’s large cast of sad characters. While Alex is sentenced to 18 years in jail, Rodolfo is consumed with remorse for allowing Alex to take the fall for him. Rodolfo similarly spends most of his childhood under the control of his ruthless criminal father, César Lazcano, and appears to be on the verge of following in his footsteps. Rodolfo, on the other hand, grows progressively estranged from César as Alex begins to divulge the Lazcano family’s dark secrets.
Rodolfo is entirely on Alex’s side by season three and wants to help solve Sara’s murder. Rodolfo desires vengeance against his father, as César has abandoned the family and taken their remaining wealth. Rodolfo joins Elisa as the second Lazcano sibling to actively assist Alex in finding Sara’s killer. Of course, the mission gets increasingly perilous, and Rodolfo is shot by a security officer during the climactic battle at the Medusa headquarters.
As he tries to save Sara’s daughter, Lucia, Rodolfo is wounded in the abdomen. César kills the security guy who shoots Rodolfo with his characteristic bullet between the eyes. However, as the eldest Lazcano brother slowly bleeds out on the ground, it is too late. Chema and Elisa watch Rodolfo die helplessly. Sara is his last name, which is appropriate.
Rodolfo’s death is tragic, yet it is also poetic. The eldest son has always carried the weight of his father’s actions and has tried to atone for them by assisting Alex. Rodolfo eventually makes the ultimate sacrifice to save Lucia, Sara’s daughter and thus Alex’s niece. Rodolfo believes he is staring at Sara in his final moments since Lucia is a carbon copy of her mother, and when he sees her, he appears to be at peace.
Rodolfo’s death is the final straw for the Lazcano family, which eventually disintegrates. Elisa and Chema have stated repeatedly that they do not want anything to do with their father. Rodolfo’s death seemed to encourage César to finally confess to his crimes, as he was the only one who desired his father’s favour.
Rodolfo’s death is terrible, but it is also a fitting conclusion to the story. It’s also worth remembering that Lucia is Rodolfo’s sister because César is her father. As a result, towards the end of Season 3, the Lazcano siblings had gained a new member (Lucia) while simultaneously losing one (Rodolfo).
