The remaining robbers, with the addition of Mónica, escape to the Professor's hideout minutes before the police arrive to find it empty.

The government responds by mobilizing the army, which the robbers use to provide cover and entry into the Bank.

The Professor and Palermo explain that their strategy for this robbery is based on Aikido, a martial art that uses an enemy's force to create an advantage.

The robbers locate accomplices among the hostages who were previously planted in the Bank and go to work on opening the vault, which is rigged to flood with water once tampered with. Bogotá uses his expertise in diving and welding to overcome the lock down, granting access to the gold. In flashbacks, Berlin and Palermo explain the plan for breaking into the vault, stating that every step of the plan requires perfection to work with no room for error.|

It works and grants them access to "the red boxes"—cases filled with government secrets that were too dangerous to lock anywhere else. Tamayo's assault begins, taking the robbers and the Professor by surprise. To stall for time and prevent bloodshed, Denver runs into the line of fire with a truce flag carrying two of the red cases, which forces Tamayo to stop. He reveals to Sierra the contents of the cases and that the Professor has the advantage—an attack might force the robbers to make the secrets public. However, Sierra is able to unbalance the Professor and Lisbon with psychological taunting. Inside the bank, the team divides when Nairobi and Palermo disagree over the use of force on the unruly restrained guards. Nairobi reveals her love for Helsinki and berates Palermo for not acting on his feelings for Berlin while the latter was alive.|

Andrés defends her, stating that he is in love, but the Professor vehemently disagrees, arguing that the first rule of the heist must be to forego personal attachments. In the present, Sierra plans to neutralize the Professor's blackmail leverage by releasing false information to the media. Tamayo agrees and organizes a second breach led by Suárez. The Professor and Lisbon have an argument and lose communication with the team inside the bank, just after learning this. Having relied on mobile transportation and broadcasting, they become stuck when a tree breaks their antenna and the wheels of their RV sink in mud. They narrowly escape detection with the help of some sympathetic local farmers. They then manage to inform the team of the breach 10 minutes before it happens, who defeat, capture, unclothe, and humiliate the breaching team by forcing them to sing "Bella ciao" on video. Given no other option, Tamayo and Sierra agree to release Rio in exchange for the breaching team and 40 hostages.|

During the reunion, the police and government intelligence team listen in on their conversations, having implanted a listening device inside Rio before releasing him. In flashbacks, the Professor instructs the team, preparing them to detect and remove these devices surgically from Rio, if the time comes. He instructs Tokyo to act normally in spite of the listening device, as he hopes to use their sexual intimacy to convince the police that the listening device is working.

|In a flashback, The Professor sees his father killed by guards during a heist. At the bank, Tamayo asks Denver to make a deal and tell him where the gold is. Denver refuses and is handed over to police outside the bank. Videos of the heist are released online by The Professor's hackers in Pakistan, showing gold being flushed out of the bank, impacting the stock market dramatically, but Tamayo does not agree to strike a deal with The Professor. Police search for the gold in the wrong locations due to fake clues left by Marseille. Sierra tracks down Rafael and Tatania, who stole the gold bars, and gives them a message from The Professor. The Professor assures Tamayo that the gold will be returned to the bank if he releases a statement saying that the matter has been peacefully resolved. The news of the trucks bringing the gold back helps stabilize the stock market, but Tamayo discovers the blocks are gold-painted brass. The Professor tells Tamayo that the fake gold bars will save the country's economy, giving him an ultimatum to either continue the lie and let them escape, or reveal the blocks are fake which will topple the economy. Tamayo faces the press and lies that The Professor and his team died while Denver will stay in witness protection after "revealing" the location of the gold; he also announces that the hostages and gold reserves are safe, restoring confidence in the Spanish economy. The Professor and his team get new identities and use the gold that Sierra carried across the border to Portugal. The Professor and his team fly off in an army helicopter to an undisclosed location to start their new lives.|
