When you have nothing, you have nothing to lose. Luciana is a woman accustomed to compartmentalizing. She did so when she left home for Tijuana. She did so when her mother died trying to reach her, when her brother Pablo was taken by the Sombras, and when her prophet proved false. She is a strong woman – strong before the apocalypse, stronger during it, but Luciana’s weakening now. And it’s not just the gunshot that felled her at the end of Season 2 – she has lost her people, her place, and now she’s left wounded with only Nick to provide. She knows his default setting is flight. And his one selfless act, the one time he returned, resulted in the death of many of her people and her own injury. Luciana starts questioning her future and it will fall on Nick to bolster her and convince her that she needs to fight, to survive – because of what she’s lost. She has an obligation, a duty to survive where others have fallen and to fight for the very thing her family lost.
