Greetings from Lithuania.

"Narcos" has delivered another great episode called "La Gran Mentira". Safe to say that this was one of the best episodes so far in a terrific season 1 at this moment. With only two episodes left in a season 1, can't wait to see them all.

The story moved further during this episode. While i do not feel any sympathy for Pablo Escobar himself, because like one person has said in this show "he doesn't have a soul", i was a little bit moved at the end of this episode in a scene with him and his mom, remembering some things from his childhood (no spoilers) - it was a great scene. At during this episode it is not a one great scene - the whole episode is just great from start till finish.
