Ultima Lucha Cuatro, pt. 1
The show opened with Captain Vasquez in her office looking over the file on Lucha Underground when Aerostar walked in. Aerostar said he met a girl a millennia ago who wanted to save the world. Aerostar told her father that he would give her an amulet to let her live forever in order to save the world. Aerostar said that she did well with the extra life she lived, but he was wrong about her saving the world. He saw the future clearly now, and in order to save everyone, he needed the other half of the amulet.
Vasquez was that little girl, and she handed her half of the amulet over to Aerostar and she turned to dust.
Lucha Underground Trios Champions The Reptile Tribe defeated The White Rabbit Tribe and Sammy Guevara, Ivelisse & XO Lishus in a three-way elimination match to retain their titles

Taya defeated Ricky Mundo w/ Rosa (the evil doll)
Taya opened the match by beating the crap out of Ricky. Ricky turned it around with a superkick and the action spilled to ringside. Taya jumped off the announce table and took out Ricky to start taking it to him. Taya hit a series of suplexes in the ring and got a near fall. Taya ended up dodging a kick, hitting a curb stomp, and then locked in a step-over crossface and got Ricky to tap out!

Son of Havoc defeated Killshot in a Mask vs. Mask match
Son of Havoc started this match fast with a handspring flip over the top rope on Killshot. Killshot and Havoc began to exchange strikes on the outside. Killshot got the best of it, then hit a suplex. Havoc ended up on the top rope, cartwheeled off the top, went for a cutter, and Killshot caught him and hit a knee to the face! That was a crazy set of spots.
Killshot went to the outside and pulled out a stretcher from the backstage area. He also took the bottom rope off one of the turnbuckles and brought the stretcher into the ring.
Killshot went for a powerbomb onto the stretcher, but Son of Havoc countered and hit a backbreaker. The action went to the outside again and Son of Havoc pulled a table out from under the ring. Havoc set the table up in the entry way and smashed Killshot into the guardrail. Killshot went for a dive off the guardrail through the table, but Havoc cut him off and tried to kick Killshot off the apron.
Finally, Havoc was able to get him off and onto the table. Havoc went to the top of the Temple and hit a flying splash through the table! Havoc rolled Killshot into the ring, but he only got a near fall. Havoc went for the Shooting Star Press, but Killshot cut him off. Havoc managed to hit a Death Valley Driver off the top rope on Killshot, then followed up with a Shooting Star Press! Killshot still kicked out.
Havoc put Killshot on the stretcher, but Killshot cut him off again and suplexed Havoc off the top rope into the stretcher. Killshot hit the flying stomp and hit the Storm Cradle Driver, but Havoc kicked out! Both men stood up and started exchanging forearms before Havoc was able to hit a flying cutter. Havoc hit a piledriver on the stretcher! Havoc strapped Killshot to the stretcher, and then hit a Shooting Star Press before getting the pinfall.
Killshot said his name is Lt. Jermaine “Killshot” Strickland, and he unmasked saying that he was trying to run from his past where he left his brothers behind. Strickland respectfully removed his mask and handed it to Son of Havoc. Killshot admitted that he left his brothers for dead, which means Dante Fox was telling the truth.
Part one of Ultima Lucha closed with Dante Fox confronting Strickland. Strickland apologized to Fox and asked for permission to be relieved of duty. Fox relieved him of his duty, and saluted him, bringing an end to Killshot’s Lucha Underground story.
Ultima Lucha Cuatro, pt. 2
Taya and Johnny Mundo opened the show, and Johnny was seen enjoying the power of the gauntlet on his hand, playing air guitar. Johnny said that if he somehow ended up being sacrificed to the gods tonight by Matanza that he loved Taya. Taya heard a doll’s voice saying that she loved her too. Taya opened her locker, and Rosa said she was pretty and the perfect host. The evil doll then possessed Taya.

Fenix kicked out, then managed to hit an uppercut to cut Azteca off again. Fenix put Azteca on a table on the outside and hit a flipping senton off the top rope, but the table didn’t break.

Santos begged him to stop, but Fenix hit the Dark Fenix Driver to score the pinfall and win the match.
Santos walked away as the show cut to a break. As they came back, Antonio Cueto said Santos has left the building. Cueto announced that he has hired a new talent. The guest ring announcer for the rest of the night is Shaul Guerrero.
As Guerrero was making her first introduction, Famous B came out and interrupted her. Guerrero looked quite upset. Famous B said he was the only one to do guest ring announcing, and he shooed her away. B gave her his card, but she told him off.
As Famous B was getting upset at this, Chavo Guerrero Jr. came out and hit him. Shaul hit the Three Amigos on Famous B in her father’s honor. Chavo then hit the frog splash, sending Famous B packing.

The Mack hit a tope con giro on Muertes, but Muertes got up quickly and continued his powerful assault. Muertes hit a DDT on the apron, sending The Mack crashing to the floor. Muertes pulled out another casket, because of course he did.

He hit a series of moves, ending with a cannonball in the corner. The Mack opened the casket and saw that Muertes filled it with various weapons, including an axe.

Johnny kicked out and hit several shots with the gauntlet before flipping off Antonio and hitting a flying punch off the top rope and pinning Matanza! Johnny Mundo avoided being sacrificed. But what does this mean for Matanza?
Johnny was walking backstage with the gauntlet and ran into Aerostar. Aerostar said that the gauntlet was corrupting him, and while it helped him defeat Matanza, it was making him a shell as a god was possessing him. Johnny looked like he was going to keep it on but decided to take it off and give it back to Aerostar. Aerostar called him a good man, but Johnny said that he wasn’t a good man.
Pentagon Dark defeated Marty the Moth in a Cero Miedo match to win the Lucha Underground Championship

Both men got back in the ring, with Marty hitting a low blow before putting Pentagon on the top rope into a tree of woe and putting Pentagon’s head in the garbage can. Marty smashed the garbage can with a barbed wire baseball bat, leaving Pentagon in a heap on the mat.
Marty pulled a can of gasoline from under the ring and poured the gas on Pentagon. Marty pulled out a lighter as the fans chanted no. As Marty played to the crowd, Pentagon kicked the lighter from Marty’s hand. Marty was literally trying to kill Pentagon, but Pentagon wouldn’t give up.

Pentagon set up six chairs in the ring as the crowd chanted for him. Pentagon went for the package piledriver through the chairs and nailed it! Pentagon pinned Marty and is the new Lucha Underground Champion.
Pentagon grabbed Marty’s arm and was about to break it again, but Reklusa attacked and stopped Pentagon from doing it. As she was attacking, Vampiro left the announcer’s booth and chased her off. The crowd chanted for Pentagon as Vampiro handed the title to him. Vampiro looked conflicted before low blowing Pentagon! Both men then started brawling. Pentagon was attacking when a mystery luchador ran down and nailed Pentagon with a chair!
Vampiro bowed to him and said that this luchador was his master. The mystery luchador hit a Shooting Star Press off the top of the temple onto Pentagon on the floor. Holy crap.

Jake Strong defeated Pentagon Dark to win the Lucha Underground Championship
Jake Strong’s music hit after the devastation, and Strong came out with his Gift of the Gods Championship. Strong said that Cueto said Strong could cash it in whenever he wanted, and his voice became demonic as he exchanged the title.
Strong immediately broke Pentagon’s ankle! Pentagon wouldn’t give up, but he passed out — and the referee stopped the match. Jake Strong is the new Lucha Underground Champion.
The show closed with Aerostar, Dragon Azteca Jr., and King Cuerno meeting up to discuss the gauntlet of the gods and how it needs to go back into hiding. Azteca took the gauntlet and we saw that he gave it to Black Lotus. Lotus found Matanza and confessed that she now knew it was him that killed her parents instead of Azteca. Lotus then ripped the heart out of Matanza, apparently killing him. Azteca took the gauntlet back, saying that her parents could finally rest in peace.
Jake Strong attacked Azteca Jr., knocking him out, breaking his ankle, and stealing the gauntlet. Strong said that the gauntlet belonged to “us.” Strong chanted as he slapped the blood-stained gauntlet against his own chest. Johnny Mundo walked backstage and tried to talk to Taya, but the newly-possessed Taya attacked him and claimed that she was God.
Antonio Cueto was sitting in a limo with the mystery man from last season that shot Dario Cueto. They discussed that all the gods have taken human form. Vampiro’s master was in there too, and said something in another language we couldn’t understand as Strong sat in the limo with the championship.
They asked whose blood was on him, and Strong said Matanza as Cueto looked on in sadness, knowing that his son died. A mysterious voice called Matanza a worthy host, but he said that The Order appreciated his sacrifice. Another member of The Order was revealed, as the cigar smoking man in the limo leaned forward to reveal Wade Barrett, who announced that it was time to take over the world.
We then saw a flashback to one year earlier when Antonio Cueto took Dario Cueto’s key from him to unlock Matanza from his cage. As Antonio left, Aerostar appeared. He put the now-completed amulet from earlier around Dario’s neck, and Dario opened his eyes and sat up, having returned from the dead.
The show closed with the line, “To Be Continued.”This was a really entertaining finale to the season. I, for one, hope to see what happens next.
