Spoiler alert: This article contains spoilers for Season 5 Episode 6 of Queen of the South.
The crime drama series Queen of the South is in its fifth and final season. The show focuses on both the struggles and the rise of Teresa Mendoza (Alice Braga), who flees to the United States after her drug-dealing boyfriend is murdered. Alice then joins forces with Camila Vargas (Veronica Falcon), who’s the head of an American cartel, so she can defeat the drug ring that not only killed her boyfriend but is hunting her as well.
Teresa wouldn’t have gotten to where she is without the help from some loyal workers such as King George (Ryan O'Nan), who was introduced to viewers in Season 2. King George is a fan favorite on the USA series. He is loved for his crucial role in assisting Teresa on her path to queenpin status and his comedic one-liners.
