Season 5 of "El Señor De Los Cielos"
Jorge Luis Moreno ended his run on "El Señor De Los Cielos." Telemundo

Season 5 of "El Señor De Los Cielos" continues on Telemundo and it surprised viewers by killing off one of the major characters of the series that has been part of the show since the beginning. Victor Casillas Jr. has existed in this fictional world since Season 1, growing into a lost young man in the latter seasons, played magnificently by Jorge Luis Moreno. His character lost his path after the power got to his head, but he redeemed himself by going back and remembering where he came from.

Victor and Aurelio Casillas (Rafael Amaya) had just reconciled, but his uncle's nemesis Tony Pastrana got to Victor and shot him to death. Pastrana is out to get Aurelio's head and is going around killing everyone around him so he can peek out and confront him. How will this affect the series? We will have to continue watching "El Señor De Los Cielos" weeknights at 10pm/9c on Telemundo. Watch the gruesome scene below and tell us what you think!

This season of "El Señor De Los Cielos," Aurelio Casillas has retreated from the action and the business to live his relationship with Emiliana Contreras, his latest lover - in a ranch near the mountains, known as the Golden Triangle, between the states of Sonora, Sinaloa and Durango - apparently enjoying now that authorities believe him dead. But deep inside, he is preparing because he knows he’ll have to start a war that was put on hold, with Victor, his nephew. And he knows one of them will not come out alive. It will be a war to death that will shed a lot of blood, not from outsiders, but from his own family.

Monica was seriously wounded on her wedding day and awakens from a coma that kept her on the brink of death for a long time. Meanwhile, Alba is in danger when the convent where she has been hiding for a long time is attacked, so she goes to her son for help to save her life and the lives of the nuns who are at risk of being raped and murdered.

Victor, oblivious to everything that has happened to Monica and the rest of his family, has gone mad unable to find his wife. He is consumed by rage and resentment and that has Mexico immersed in a world of horror and chaos. The Maras Salvatruchas and other organizations under his command, have devoted to drug trafficking, kidnapping, piracy and human trafficking, leading the government to declare a state of emergency. His loyal collaborator, Superjavi, has decided to step back and operate from Colombia, as he knows things will not end well if he stays next to Victor, and he seeks an alliance with Aurelio.

Ismael, meanwhile, has become the Casillas family counselor and will do everything possible to keep the family together and above all, to reach a truce between his father and his cousin.

Felina, who had been arrested, tells Emiliana, her ally, she is about to be extradited, so Emiliana rescues and makes Felina part of her cartel, all behind Aurelio’s back. Once released, Felina organizes a group to support Emiliana. Monica, once recuperated, gets back to business, creating her own group and getting ready to destroy everything in her past that links her to the Casillas, and finally get them out of her life and her heart. Aurelio discovers Emiliana’s betrayal with Lourdes and realizes Monica was right when she constantly confronted them, so he decides to seek an alliance with Monica that will begin with developing war strategies, but he will soon try to take her to bed, which they both desire, but out of pride, deny it.

It will be Aurelio and his new allies - the old school drug traffickers in conjunction with the Colombians - who will save the country from total destruction, before the impassive eyes of authorities. Once peace is achieved, with all the pain of having spilled so much of his own blood, Aurelio will seek to resolve his unfinished story with Monica, hoping it’s not too late after so much pain and death.
