Reyna Flores, Matador
Reyna Flores (Eve Torres)
Matador was an American series that chronicled the rise of popular soccer star Tony “Matador” Bravo (Gabriel Luna) a DEA agent recruited by the CIA to infiltrate the Los Angeles Riot, a professional soccer team. Reyna Flores was a hard-nosed Latina journalist covering the inside world of professional soccer. She had to frequently put up with sexual harassment in locker rooms to get her job done.
She had a girlfriend whom she kept hidden and referred to as a “friend”. In episode 11, it turned out she had been living a double life, tracking Galan for murdering her father. Reyna shot Galan during a game, and ended up getting shot several times herself. Galan survived, as did a tape Reyna made, explaining her actions.
“You know me as Reyna Flores, but that’s not my real name,” she said into the camera. “My name is Valeria Molinez. By now, you know what I’ve done.”
Reyna explained Galan had killed her father because he championed a movement to unionize the Telecom Industry in Mexico. “Today, I give you the truth about Andres Galan, my enemy who has now become my teacher. He offered me a quote once for an interview, a quote that now guides me on my present course: ‘Never pray for that which you have the power to execute yourself.’ Andres, it is my honor.”
Reyna died while Galan lived, and she was listed as one of the most horrifying lesbian character deaths on television on AfterEllen.
