The first episode of Season 2 begins right from the ending of season 1. Some soldiers find Pablo Escobar outside the perimeter of La Cathedral but are too scared to arrest him. Escobar still has the little loyalty of his cartel and starts hiding from the CIA. He hires a pimp- Limon, who is also a taxi driver and helps Pablo in hiding in the trunk of the car. Cali Cartel soon gets into an alliance with the right wing Castano brothers, Judy Moncada and Don Berna. Judy has a meeting with Cali Cartel’s leaders where she reluctantly gives away the address of Escobar’s drug labs to the DEA search team. This leads to multiple arrests of the cartel members. Infuriated by this, Escobar kills Colonel Horacio Carillo who is a Colombian police chief. Eventually, the Colombian police and Escobar indulge in long lasting fights resulting in unrest in Colombia. At Gilberto’s daughter’s wedding, Pablo Escobar explodes a bomb injuring a large number of people. Enraged by this, Gilberto has Hermilda followed by Los Pepes from the Christmas Mass and attacks the whole Escobar family in their house.
Escobar tries to get his family safely to Germany. But, Steve gets to know about this and deports them back to Colombia. Eventually, all of Escobar's men are hunted down and killed. Getting to know about this, Pablo tries to hide out with Limon. Limon steals Maritza's (Limon's childhood friend) earrings and kills her, and both the boys run off to Medellin. Pablo tries to contact his family, but during the procedure, DEA tracks him down using radio triangulation. Limon is shot while trying to escape through a window and Pablo is hit multiple times, but finally shot dead in the head. Meanwhile, Tata (Escobar's wife) seeks help from the Cali Cartel to leave the country.
