I have heard the following line in the TV series Narcos:Mexico :

Mañana me voy a cerrar un negocio. Ahí te aviso si todo sale al cielo.

Context: Felix, Guadalajara cartel boss, has just tried to renegotiate the terms of his cocaine transportation deal with the Cali cartel, but failed. After the meeting, he decides to travel the next day in order to get a new associate and a better deal. Then, he notifies his right-hand man (El Azul) of what he is going to do.

What does "sale al cielo" means? "to go alright" ? I couldn't find its meaning in the Word Reference dictionary.

  • not sure if it is everything goes fine, or goes away – Iria Feb 14 '20 at 14:38
  • I believe that I need the full context to understand it better – Iria Feb 14 '20 at 14:38
  • @Iria Context added. I don't think that "goes away" makes sense as a translation of "salir al cielo" in this sentence. – Alan Evangelista Feb 14 '20 at 14:43
  • Note that many other answers of similar questions suggested explanations coming from the DAMER. Have you checked it? – fedorqui 'SO stop harming' Feb 14 '20 at 14:43
