In the first episode of season 4 of Money Heist, Tokyo decides to take command against the current leader Palermo, thus organizing a mutiny. The course of events that led to this does not make sense to me.

  1. First Palermo says that they should operate Nairobi and he orders to give her total anesthesia
  2. Nairobi refuses and asks to be surrendered to the police
  3. At this point Tokyo and Helsinki take her side, disregarding Palermo's authority

It seems that the mutiny originates from this disagreement, and, in fact

  1. Palermo steps down and leaves the command to Tokyo

But here's the bit that doesn't make sense to me:

  1. Tokyo assumes command and orders to operate Nairobi, just like Palermo wanted. And everybody proceeds without questioning that decision.

What gives?


At the same time, Palermo both made a compelling argument against releasing Nairobi, but also caused people to no longer want him in charge. Effectively, even though he had a point, the way in which he argued that point made him an untrustworthy leader from that point on.
