Was Jess’s Father Alive?

“National Treasure: Edge of History” Episode 7 begins in Oren’s car, where Tash and Oren assure Jess that they will not let her go to Mexico alone. However, on their way home, the FBI was seen searching Jess’ belongings. Tash looked into Jess’ police record and discovered that she was wanted for the murder of Peter Sadusky. They realized that someone had framed Jess, and that person had to be Billie. Meanwhile, Billie ran into a history buff who told her that the Alamo Museum was named after the indigenous warriors’ hometown in Mexico. Billie eventually realized she needed to go to Viesca to find the relics. Ethan arrived to tell Jess that Liam was not a traitor, but that he had been captured and brutally beaten by Billie’s employees. Jess felt bad about trusting Billie, but she didn’t have time to confront Liam because she needed to go to Mexico to find the treasure box. She assumed that once she arrived in Mexico, her first task would be to meet with Salazar, the only person who could prevent Billie from discovering the treasure. In contrast, Ethan went to the FBI to persuade Ross that Jess was not a murderer. However, Ross played a recording in which Jess’ voice was heard threatening Sadusky. Ethan informed Ross that it was a forgery because Jess did not pronounce “Further” as it was recorded. Billie, according to Ethan, was the one who duped her. Ross met Billie the next day and noticed her pronunciation of “Further,” which sounded exactly like the one in the recording. She tried to convince her boss, but her boss had been too lazy to investigate the murder of an FBI agent from the very beginning, so he directed Ross to arrest Jess based on the recording. Sadusky’s nurse refused Billie’s reward and turned out to be a good guy who wanted to help Liam find Jess, but Liam didn’t have faith in him.

When Jess, Tasha, and Oren arrived in Mexico, they went to the prison to meet Salazar. When Jess finally confronted Salazar, he noticed the medallion around her neck and addressed her by her actual name, Jessita. The Salazar Jess was looking for turned out to be her father, Rafael, who had been imprisoned for bank robbery. But his intention had not been to rob the bank, and it appeared that he was framed somehow, with the police mistaking him for Salazar. Jess wasn’t ready to believe him, so Rafael sang the lullaby that Manuela used to sing to Jess when she was a child. Jess finally believed that it was her father. She told him about her mother’s death, which broke Rafael’s heart. But Rafael was still insanely obsessed with the treasure hunt. He told her daughter that the treasure should be kept safe no matter what happened. As a result, Rafael assisted her in locating the third relic by informing her of a clue. Jess was upset about her father’s madness about hunting the treasure. She bid him her farewell and told her friends about the incident and the clue that her father had told her about.


How Did Jess Find The Third Relic?

The clue was about Queen Isabella and Saint Jerome meeting and exchanging notes. They discovered it was an allegory and that Queen Isabella and Jerome did not actually meet, but that in Mexico, two streets with the same names had met in a place where a Sor Juana museum was established. Sor Juana, a Mexican writer and poet, could have been a Plumed Serpent’s daughter who had hidden the relic inside the museum. When Jess and her friends arrived at the museum, they discovered an organ in the middle of the hall. The museum was full of Juana’s belongings, but the organ could have held a clue. Ethan remembered that they could play Jess’s mother’s lullaby song, which could be a key to unlocking the gateway and finding the relic. Tash played the lullaby, which unlocked a door in the museum, allowing Jess to get the third relic. When the nun confronted Jess about the treasure, Jess did not lie to her and told her everything about her being a daughter of the Plumed Serpent. The nun was also aware of the treasure, and she told Jess that she had been waiting for someone like her. She let her have the box. Meanwhile, Billie employed the same strategy that Jess  had previously considered using. She traveled to Mexico to meet Salazar but discovered that Rafael was still alive.

Jess brought all three relics, making certain that neither she nor the relics could be accessed by Billie. When she opened the box, the relics looked like puzzle pieces. She put the pieces together, and it resembled a map. Except for her father, Rafael, Jess discovered that no one would be able to interpret the location. So, she returned to the prison, only to discover that Billie had entered to meet Salazar. Jess was terrified, believing that if Billie discovered Rafael was alive, she could kill him. Therefore, future episodes would reveal if Billie would kill Rafael or if she would pressure him or blackmail him to get the answer of finding the treasure.
