It’s 10! Brother brother brother brother brother! (To those of you who saw the premiere – shhh!)
We get a recap of Vampiro’s release from the psychiatric facility from the season premiere. Mil Muertes and Catrina. The Unlikely Trio. The Ancient Aztec Prophecy. Everything this season leading up to this moment – Ultima Lucha Dos, the finale. El Dragon Azteca’s death. Black Lotus. El Dragon Azteca, Jr.’s rise to power, with the help of Rey Mysterio, Jr. Dario Cueto’s return with his brother, The Monster. Aztec Warfare II. The formation of the Worldwide Underground, and their Trios title reign. Pentagon, Jr. and his sensei. Ivelisse and Taya, and their hatred. Prince Puma and Rey Mysterio.
Pentagon Junior has now earned the right to face Matanza. He is bowed before Vampiro. But is he ready. Si. No. He says he has no fear, but that night, Vampiro saw nothing but fear. Pentagon needs to destroy the man who was broken by The Monster. Pentagon obeys. He leaves the sanctuary.
He must destroy the man he once was. There is a brawl between Vampiro and Pentagon. We the Believers are kept in the dark. Vampiro becomes the Pentagon from that night and tells him, You’re still scared. But Pentagon is not… Or is he? Vampiro tells him he’s ready. The Temple remains a much darker place, but Pentagon is bright.
