Félix Gallardo (Diego Luna) was hit with a hammer blow in the second season of Narcos: Mexico when he was arrested and sent to prison for the murder of DEA Agent Enrique “Kiki” Camarena (Michael Pea).
Eric Newman, a former showrunner on the show, talked about the last scene between Gallardo and Walt Breslin (Scoot McNairy) “At that point in the season, they’re no longer enemies. That’s what I think makes this show different from other shows.
Both of them have lost. It didn’t work out for either one of them, and they both went into this thing very naive. This is what Walt thinks: ‘I’m going down [to Mexico] and getting back what I deserve. It’s easy. We’re going to go down there, kick-ass, and win.
“Félix Gallardo thought he was going to be in charge of this partnership with the government, and that he wasn’t going to be thrown away. He thought he was so important in Mexico’s economy that he was above the law. There’s a conversation going on between the two guys about how things are going to turn out.”
After all, now that the head honcho is in prison, where will the show go from here? You can find out everything you need to know about the third season of Narcos: Mexico right here.

What Does Will Happen in Season 3?
Season three, according to Deadline, takes place in the 1990s and looks at the war between the groups that formed after Gallardo was imprisoned: “Cartels that have just become independent are having a hard time coping with political changes and rising violence.
A new generation of Mexican kingpins emerges. But in this war, truth is the first thing to die, and every arrest, murder, and takedown only pushes real victory away from us more and more each time.”
Newman was talking to Collider and said: “A lot of things are speeding up, but we’re still in the early stages of it. At the beginning of the drug war, Félix Gallardo went to jail, and this thing he had built into these fiefdoms was broken up into smaller parts.
“We’re going into the ’90s, which is when things get really bad because Félix Gallardo and his dream are gone, so the killing starts.” He also said: “You look at today and what’s going on, and many of the same people, the same old guard cartel guys, are still around.
They are fighting against a new generation of cartels that are very violent and don’t follow any rules. These new cartels don’t follow any rules, so they don’t fight back. They’re truly unique because of their tendency to be violent. It’s the only thing they can do.
“As we watch this happen, we want the old guys to win. People don’t care about the Jalisco cartel, the Los Zetas, or any of the other groups because they don’t see them in the real world. Season two of Mexico is where we reach the point of no return and then go into chaos.
