But it turns out Berlin’s past comes back to haunt The Professor and the heist team, despite being dead. While the gold is pumped upstream to The Professor’s hideout and welded back into bricks, little did they know that Tatiana and Rafael had a plan of their own. The police show up at the Stormwater tank in episode 8 and arrest The Professor and his team, but it’s a trick. They are not really the police.
