Over: The Aztec Medallions
The downside to attending the season finale of Lucha Underground — technically hours two and three of ‘Ultimate Lucha’ — is that some of the show’s mysteries aren’t mysteries to me anymore. That means I’ve gotta sit here and write about them without getting excited and typing six paragraphs about what they mean, which as you may know is my natural state. What I can tell you is that the Aztec medallions are leading to something creative and wonderful, and that Lucha Underground is (mostly) bulletproof when it comes to satisfying payoffs. They don’t have a lot of time to work, but they don’t introduce something cool like “here are seven mystical medallions I that represent ahn-see-ent tribes and make my father who is probably the Shoot Devil very proud” without knowing where it goes.
