Money Heist season 4 is now streaming on Netflix.

Similar to the other characters involved in the heists, everyone is given an alias to use rather than their real names.

So when Rehén (Belén Cuesta) is first introduced in the first episode of the new season, she is referred to as Manila, our capital city.

She must be someone that the professor trusts for him to allow a new member to join, especially in the middle of a new heist.

But this isn’t the first time she has appeared in the series.

Apparently, Manila has already appeared in a couple of episodes of the previous season. These episodes are La deriva and Pequeñas vacaciones.

However, it looks like she is going to be a more permanent character as she now also wears a red boiler suit.

Manila is described as the “godchild of Moscow and Denver’s childhood friend”.

“She is a transwoman who joins the gang and poses as one of the hostages during the robbery of the Bank of Spain,” her character description read.

Fans of the series are just going to have to watch the entirety of series four though to find out even more about new robber Manila.
