WARNING: This article contains spoilers from Queen of the South.
What happened in Queen of the South season 4?
Teresa moves to New Orleans
The Mendoza cartel switched locations, instead of moving everything to New Orleans.
A big reason for relocating the operation was to do with being able to transport their goods easier without the DEA on their backs all the time.
While here, Teresa found a new love interest in musician Eddie (Bailey Chase) but this didn’t last.
After the pair’s road trip got interrupted by a sicario that was trying to kill her, Teresa decided to break up with him as it was too dangerous.

The cartel finds new enemies in Lafayette and Marcel Dumas
On moving to the Big Easy, Teresa met Judge Lafayette (David Andrews) and fellow cartel leader Marcel Dumas (Alimi Ballard).
Lafayette said she would be able to continue her dealings as long as she paid her “taxes” to him.
Meanwhile, Marcel and Teresa originally had a rivalry going as different operations but later discover the judge had a spy in both of their cartels.
This led to them calling a truce, agreeing to no longer fight against one another and remember who the real enemy is – Lafayette.
Tony and Javier die
Javier Jiminez (Alfonso Herrera) got into a fight with the judge’s nephew René Bardot (James Austin Kerr) and ended up killing him.
Believing Teresa was behind the attack, Lafayette wanted his revenge and so he got someone to plant a bomb in the car she purchased for Tony Parra (Julian Silva).
The bomb went off when he turned on the engine, killing Tony and putting Teresa in a coma.
Heartbroken that he had something to do with Tony’s death, Javier handed himself over to the judge who then instructed for him to be burnt alive.
But in the process of being set alight, Javier grabbed the judge’s henchman Randall Green (Cory Hart), in revenge for killing his girlfriend Emilia earlier in the series.

Teresa strikes up a deal with the Russian mafia
While all of this is going on, Teresa started to form a bond with Russian dealer Oksana Volkova (Vera Cherny).
By the end of the season, they agree on a deal so Teresa could work with the Russian mob in New York.
This means Teresa would be able to expand her business even further, not only making her mark in the Big Easy but now the Big Apple.
Does this mean Queen of the South season five is going to be set in New York City?
James Valdez returns
As the Mendoza cartel was preparing their shipment to New York, a car pulled up to the warehouse in the series finale.
James Valdez (Peter Gadiot), who hadn’t been seen since season three came out of the vehicle and dropped to the floor, with blood on his shirt.
Teresa rushed to him, asking what had happened but James said there was no time.
He was there to give her a warning as someone was out to get her but the drama came to an end before their identity was revealed.
Queen of the South is available to watch on USA Network and Netflix.
