Luis was killed by Dolores Roach.
In the podcast “The Horror of Dolores Roach,” Luis is a character who becomes entangled in the dark and twisted narrative of the protagonist, Dolores. After Dolores returns to her old neighborhood following a sixteen-year prison sentence, she reconnects with Luis, her old friend who runs a failing empanada shop. As the story unfolds, Dolores’s actions become increasingly sinister and desperate as she tries to survive in a world that has moved on without her. In a chilling turn of events, Dolores murders Luis in a moment of betrayal and panic. His death is a pivotal moment in the series, marking Dolores’s deeper descent into criminality and horror, as she resorts to cannibalism and disposes of his body by serving it in empanadas to unsuspecting customers. Luis’s demise is a grim reflection of the show’s exploration of gentrification, survival, and the lengths to which a person might go when pushed to the edge.
