The season finale of Who Killed Sara? did not answer all of our questions; in fact, it left us even more! One of the big questions we have for the next season is the identity of the body that Alex discovered in the final minutes of the finale. Is it sara Is it someone else we know Is it someone we haven’t heard from? There are many theories, each with their own advantages and disadvantages.
The most obvious conclusion is that the body belongs to someone who was murdered by Cesar Lozcano. After all, we’ve spent much of the show unraveling the depraved and violent things he’s willing to find his way around and cover up his mounting crimes. One possibility for the body is that it is Sara herself, as it is her death that has been the driving force behind the whole show so far. At the end of the season, we learn that Sara’s death wasn’t as clear-cut as everyone first thought: she was targeted by Mariana, who wanted her dead to keep family secrets, but Elroy, who was supposed to manipulate parasailing like Sara would die, revealing that he couldn’t bring himself to do it.
Given that we see Sara’s apparent death on screen – she actually has a parasailing accident, though we now wonder who rigged the rigging – the likelihood that she is the body with a bullet hole seems less likely to be. A far more likely theory is that it is one of the women Cesar traded, blackmailed, and abused. We’ve already seen how he murdered at least one of the women he forced to work in his brothel. Worryingly, he even made a record of the violence.
This theory makes more sense if you remember that Alex found the grave site based on a drawing in Sara’s notebook. This suggests that the body was likely there during Sara’s lifetime and that she either knew or was investigating the identity of the dead person. Since this was the big cliffhanger at the end of the season, we’re pretty confident we’ll get some answers when Season 2 hits Netflix on May 19th!
