Summary: Who Killed Sara - Seasons 1
The fiction follows Álex Guzmán, hellbent on finding out who killed his sister Sara after spending 18 years in prison for a crime he did not commit and on getting revenge on the Lazcano family.
The first season of the Netflix series Who Killed Sara?, a.k.a. ¿Quién mató a Sara?, was a thrilling ride that traced Alex Guzman’s (Manolo Cardona) investigation into his sister Sara’s (Ximena Lamadrid) death. A second season is coming on May 19—which is great news, because season one ended with more questions than answers about Sara’s death: What secrets was Sara hiding in her new diary? Who is the skeleton Alex dug up? Why isn’t Cesar in jail yet? Are any of the Lazcanos going to get out of this with their love lives intact? Let’s unpack the finale’s twists, turns, flashbacks and montages.
First, the background: On a lake house holiday with her brother and her boyfriend’s family, the rich Lazcanos, Sara dies in a parasailing accident. Police discover that Sara’s death was a homicide, and patriarch Cesar Lazcano (Ginés García Millán) convinces Alex to take the fall. After 18 years in jail, wrongfully imprisoned for Sara’s death, Alex gets out and immediately goes after the Lazcanos, vowing revenge against Cesar and his son Rodolfo, Sara’s old boyfriend. But Alex quickly learns that Rodolfo was not responsible for Sara’s death. Thus begins a winding investigation to find out who killed Sara, with Alex helped along by his new love interest, the youngest Lazcano daughter, Elisa (Carolina Miranda).
The bulk of the finale is an extended flashback showing the details of the lake trip and the hours before Sara’s death. It begins in the aftermath of Sara watching the video of a man beating one of the casino’s prostitutes, Flor Sanchez; she runs out of Cesar’s right-hand man Sergio’s office with the tape. We see that Sara is afraid of Cesar and Sergio, who know that she’s seen the tape. But we also learn that there’s a different credible suspect for Sara’s death: the Lazcano matriarch, Mariana.
In the flashback timeline, Mariana learns from her lackey Elroy that Sara is pregnant with her husband Cesar’s child. She ends up taking Sara on a short hike up a mountain, where she pretends that she thinks her son Rodolfo is the father of Sara’s baby. She tells Sara that she’s in favor of the pregnancy and will support her. But she also nearly pushes Sara off a cliff and encourages Sara to have fun when she can, and specifically to try the family’s new parasail wing. Later, Mariana orders Elroy to cut the parachute harness, blackmailing him with knowledge of his past crimes (and also some twisted seduction).
The rest of the flashbacks play out as we’ve already seen: Sara, Alex, Rodolfo and Chema go out onto the lake, Elroy keeps the boys from parasailing first, Sara goes up in the broken harness and falls into the lake. For extra measure, we also see Mariana talking to a dial tone when pretending to call the hospital and scrubbing the boat clean of evidence. However, before we can call the case open and shut, we see Elroy admit that he “couldn’t do it.” That, plus the fact that we don’t actually see Elroy cut the harness, suggests that he didn’t go through with it. Unfortunately, in the present timeline it looks like Mariana killed him in the hospital, so we’ll never know whether he really cut the harness.
Long story short: We don’t find out who killed Sara by the end of season one. We have more credible suspects, and we’ve taken others off the list, including Rodolfo and Chema, but Alex isn’t done with his investigation yet. Instead of a conviction, we get a new twist to the mystery behind Sara’s death that will propel us into season two.
In the final minutes of season one, Alex finds the second diary of Sara’s in the wall of his childhood home. It’s a huge discovery, since Alex had been using Sara’s diary as guidance throughout his investigation. In the new diary, we see a new side of Sara; the writing includes erratic scribbles and drawings along with a page that says, “I want to die.” After reading the diary, Alex calls his girlfriend Eliza and tells her that they were wrong about everything. He also recognizes a drawn location in the new diary. When he gets there, he finds a shallow grave and a skeleton with a bullet through the skull. We see through a flashback that Cesar shot whoever the skeleton was.
