The latest drug cartel thriller continued last year on the USA Network with a sensational fourth season. Now all instalments have been made available on Netflix, Queen of the South fans have returned to older episodes and noticed some glaring mistakes.

The riveting crime drama follows impoverished young woman Teresa Mendoza (played by Alice Braga) who decides to take her life into her own hands.

Over the course of the series she amasses a vast fortune by expanding her drug empire throughout Mexico.

Unfortunately, her illegal trading catches the eye of rival cartel, the Vargas, who will try everything in their power to stop Teresa from dominating the competition.

Along the way, she also has an unpleasant run-in with formidable cartel boss El Santo (Steven Baur) who has a frightening reputation.

Most of Mexico’s other cartels avoid doing business with El Santa as he is rumoured to be completely insane, although his cultish personality and charismatic way with words have brought him success.

The cartel boss appears in season two’s episode El Camino de la Muerte in which an attempted deal threatens to turn nasty when El Santo forces Teresa to eat a bug that acts as a powerful hallucinogen.

Luckily, Teresa managed to escape with her life, a metric ton of El Santo’s cocaine and a raging headache.

Although the tense sequence was a highlight of Queen of the South’s second season, some fans have taken issue with El Santo’s claim his product was ‘98% pure’.

Fans took to Reddit to clarify whether this radical claim should have been trusted.

Redditor jbuckeye10 asked: “I thought that only El Santo had 98% cocaine purity because he cooked with ether. After he was gone and they were in NOLA with the Colombian suppliers, they still said they were 98% pure.

“How is that possible since they’re no longer getting product from El Santo? The whole reason everyone wanted Teresa’s product is because it was so pure.”

Other fans took to the comments to clarify how drugs like cocaine can be contaminated by street dealers once the product is out of the suppliers’ hands.

Another viewer explained: “All cocaine is 98-100% pure upon cooking and processing.

“It’s the middle men that chop it to make more of it to sell more of it. By the time the street dealers get it, it’s all ‘stepped on’.”

Once Class A narcotics reach the streets they’re often laced with less powerful drugs and other substances so dealers can sell more of their product at a higher profit.

Much like Walter White (Bryan Cranston) in Breaking Bad, Teresa’s dedication to selling the purest substances possible explains how she manages to become so successful throughout the series.

Meanwhile, other fans have called for the return of El Santo, who only made one brief yet memorable appearance in season two.

One more viewer said: “I’d like to see him come back. I doubt he is dead. He is too valuable to the CIA.

“They have him. That’s my theory. I think he will come back and make a stank.”

Unfortunately, production on season five was stalled by the coronavirus pandemic so it may be some time before Teresa and El Santo face off again.

Queen of the South seasons 1-4 are available to stream on Netflix.
