S.O.Z. Soldados o Zombies season 1 – who died and who survived? Everyone died yet no one died
This recap of season 1 of Amazon’s S.O.Z. Soldados o Zombies contains spoilers.
Time to break down who survived the mini zombie apocalypse between the cartel, the military, and the bystanders caught in this mess.
In the midst of a zombie apocalypse, it begins to be tough to decipher who exactly is living, who is dead, and who is somewhere in the middle as an undead, barely feeling machine. In Amazon’s newest series, S.O.Z. Soldados o Zombies, it becomes important to differentiate these three groups of people, as everyone starts the series alive and well.
Who died and who survived in S.O.Z. Soldados o Zombies season 1?
Following a swirling circle of military personnel, drug cartels, prisoners, prison guards, and a few other random bystanders, the series depicts a zombie outbreak stemming from U.S. experiments on pigs, who then turn into killer pigs, who then start turning humans into killer humans. Let’s start the process with those that have sadly left this world and aren’t returning as a mutated zombie.
Dead and staying dead
Though small in size, this might be the most coveted group of people, those that aren’t killing or waiting to be killed. Some zombies fall into this group, those that were dispatched by Marroquín (Sergio Peris-Mencheta), his bodyguards, or the U.S. military. A few bystanders fall into this category as well, including the alcoholic priest that picks up journalist Lilia Acal Prado (Fátima Molina) after her car breaks down. Some immigrants attempting to cross the border had quite unfortunate timing and fell into this mess, dying in the process.
In terms of more central characters, Perro sticks at the top of the mind. Marroquín’s most loyal friend, and guardian of his son while the cartel leader was in prison, Perro was bitten while saving the child, turning into a monster, as everyone called him. He was chained to a playground set and couldn’t snap out of the mutation. And so, he was killed by the person who loved him the most, Marroquín’s nine-year-old, a kid with more guts and intensity than most children put together.
Dead but still alive
The overwhelming majority of Mexican guards that held Marroquín in prison are now zombies, including the two leaders (and lovers) of the pack. Dozens of pigs have become undead. A few soldiers continue to live the undead lifestyle, with more joining their ranks with each episode, and then some immigrants crossing the border into New Mexico, including a pregnant woman, have joined the undead army.
Alive but wished they were dead
Marroquín’s ally, the prison warden, has been taken into airport custody after sexually harassing Lilia. He is likely going to be killed by Marroquín or by the Prophet, another cartel consistently mentioned as Marroquín’s enemies. One of Marroquín’s guards was stuck in the house with an injury, and he likely will bite the dust before the zombies get to him. Then the military general, who green-lit the project that led to killer pigs and mutated persons, can’t be too happy about surviving this whole predicament.
Alive and really want to stay alive
Everyone else, including Marroquín (though he’s been bitten by a zombie), his son, Lilia, DEA Agent Joel Taft, Marroquín’s brother who escaped prison, the rapidly annoying scientist, a few of Marroquín’s men, and several soldiers who didn’t have the wits to kill half-wit zombies.
If season two happens, don’t expect all of these people to stay alive. They’re hanging on by a thread.
