Both Narcos and its spinoff, Narcos: Mexico, have shed light on the gruesome world of Central and South American drug gangs.
Season 3 of Narcos: Mexico introduces viewers to Alex Hodoyan, who will grow in importance over the season.
Who exactly is Alex Hodoyan, does season 3 of Narcos: Mexico kill him out, and was he really a genuine person?
NARCOS: MEXICO SEASON 3 RELEASE DATE AND PLOT
On Friday, November 5th, 2021, Season 3 of Narcos: Mexico premiered on Netflix.
Having left up with Felix Gallardo’s imprisonment in the second season finale, the new episodes pick up with the cartels struggling to maintain their independence in the face of political turmoil and growing bloodshed.
Without a unifying figure, the fragmenting cartels are being led by a new generation of kingpins, whose rivalry threatens to escalate into all-out war.
Who Is Alex Hodoyan in Narcos: Mexico?
In the second episode of season 3, we meet Alex Hodoyan, a Tijuana youngster who seems quite typical until his brother Alfredo introduces him to Ramón Arellano Félix’s gang of Narco Juniors.
Alex, portrayed by Lorenzo Ferro (El Angel, El Marginal), is first hesitant to join the gang but ends up becoming an integral part of the Tijuana Cartel’s operations.
Alex Hodoyan, like many of the other characters in Narcos: Mexico, is based on a real person who grew up in a middle-class Tijuana family.
Later in Season 3, however, Alex’s idyllic life is shattered when he is arrested by Mexican authorities and handed over to the DEA after admitting his dual citizenship.
Does Alex Hodoyan Die?
It’s true that Alex Hodoyan passes away at the end of season 3 of Narcos: Mexico.
Walt Breslin is counting on Alex to testify against the Arellano Félix brothers and expose their involvement in the Tijuana Cartel after being captured and handed over to the DEA.
Alex’s brother, Alfredo, was brutally murdered by the cartel after they learned that the DEA had captured Alex.
Alex decides to testify against the Tijuana Cartel and discusses his plans to return home thereafter with Breslin, despite the latter’s warning that it is not safe for him to return to Mexico.
It pains Breslin deeply that Alex disregarded the warning and fled the day before his hearing, only to be captured and brutally murdered by the Tijuana Cartel, whose members hung his body from an overpass.
While Alex’s actual ending does differ slightly from what we see in Narcos: Mexico, the two stories are remarkably similar.
After returning to Mexico, the real Alex was abducted while in the car with his mother in Tijuana; they haven’t heard from him or seen him since. PBS.org reports that he is considered dead.
