Plot[edit | edit source]

SPOILERS AHEAD

Lu is interrogated by the Inspector in a flash-forward. Lu remarks that the new students are like new animals infiltrating an ecosystem; the Inspector is confused and questions why Lu would refer to the students in this way.

Back at Las Encinas, the teacher tells the class that they are to do a social media experiment in which they improve their social media presence whilst also learning about their partner, which they will choose before leaving the class. Christian remarks that his profile is perfect, which receives a sarcastic comment from Lu and laughs from the class. Lu tells Guzmán that it is his chance to pick Nadia as a partner and enact their "plan". He is at first reluctant, however eventually gives in to Lu's prompts and asks Nadia to be his pair — despite an initial reluctance from her, she agrees. Christian and Ander work together, Polo and Carla and Marina and Samuel.

Nano working at La Cabaña

Nano is working at La Cabaña where Samuel waits. He tells Nano to hurry as customers are waiting and he told the manager that Nano had experience. Nano tells Samuel not to rush him, and remarks that the town is full of snobs. Meanwhile, Samuel waits on Ander, Polo and Guzmán's table. Guzmán makes a remark about his food being overcooked, however Samuel is distracted when he hears banging in the kitchen. When he goes to check it out, he finds Nano being attacked by two men. Despite Samuel's questioning, Nano tells him that everything is fine.

Omar and Ander on the Bridge of Los Arroyos Reservoir

Leaving the diner, Ander meets up with Omar, buying drugs from him. Ander tells him that it is good to see him and that the two can finish smoking the marijuana he started. Omar tells Ander to forget the other night and that he is not gay; he simply wanted to experiment. Ander goes to kiss Omar who pulls away, but instigates a kiss afterwards. When it begins to rain, the two head under the shelter where they begin making out. Omar begins to put his hands down Ander's pants and he quickly gets cold feet. The two continue, but Ander pulls away when Omar removes his wallet from his pocket placing it on the chair beside to ensure Ander is more comfortable. Omar is offended, remarking that it is typical for Ander to think he is about to steal from him. Ander tells Omar that he isn't comfortable and leaves shortly after — Guzmán watches the entire situation from a far, having followed Ander.

Guzmán confronts Ander the following day, but Ander simply reiterates that he was training. Outside, Samuel and Marina are creating a video documentary for their social media experiment. Marina suggests that the two head back inside, and she begins to dance in the school gym whilst Samuel records. Samuel forgets to turn off the video camera after they have finished, however and captures Marina revealing that her father is involved in shady business dealings and is hiding documents proving his involvement.

Polo witnesses Christian and Carla talking and, approaching Carla after Christian has left, Carla reveals that Christian is clueless about their previous activity. Carla thanks Polo for convincing her to do it and questions if they can again; it becomes quite clear that Polo is worried about Carla's relationship with Christian. Guzmán talks with Nadia abut the project, but Nadia is clear in her efforts to avoid Guzmán, simply handing him a list of questions and telling him to have them answered by tomorrow. Lu witnesses the event and tells Guzmán that Nadia will not make it easy for him.

Marina visits Samuel's work looking for Samuel, but finds Nano instead. The encounter is awkward, but Marina eventually finds Samuel out back on his break. Marina asks if Samuel wants to work on the project and the two begin filming once again. Samuel and Marina begin talking about Marina's unwillingness to expose her father, and Marina begins recounting how she discovered the details on her father — these documents include using cheap materials during the construction of San Esteban. Samuel is called back to work shortly after, ending the conversation between the two.

Guzmán visits Nadia talk in Frutería Shanaa

Guzmán visits Nadia, who is surprised to see him and questions what he wants. He tells her that he wishes to introduce himself to her parents despite her reluctance. Guzmán asks for her father's permission to do the project, however things become tense and Guzmán reveals that his father paid for Nadia's scholarship, therefore it would be in his best interest to allow them to work on the project. Guzmán becomes confused when Omar enters and he realises that Omar is the same person he had seen Ander with after school the previous day. Omar texts Ander to ask if he is still freaked out, however Ander ignores the message.

Carla chats with Christian

Later that night, Carla messages with Christian, but is interrupted by Polo, who calls her on Skype to ask what she is doing. Carla tells him that she is speaking with Christian and the conversation was just getting interesting; she questions if Polo would like to join to make things more interesting. Polo dictates what Carla should say to Christian and the three begin to get off on the conversation.

The following day at school, Guzmán asks Christian if Nadia's brother is a Muslim, with Christian confirming that he is. Christian incorrectly believes Guzmán wants to purchase drugs from Omar and begins to explain everything he sells; Guzmán is confused by the situation but believes he needs to tell Nadia. Guzmán apologises to Nadia, citing that he only wanted to show her father he was a good person. Nadia does not want to talk with Guzmán and tells him she has finished the project without him. In retaliation, Guzmán tells Martín that he feels the project is incomplete, and in return Martín tells her that she has not taken the project seriously, and that they should improve.

Nano notices that Samuel has left his computer unlocked. He watches the video Samuel and Marina made and witnesses Marina admitting that her father holds the incriminating evidence against himself.

Guzmán and Polo talk

Guzmán interrupts Christian and Carla who are arranging to meet up at her place later in the day. Carla tells Guzmán it is none of his business, but he has a hard time accepting that Christian is not making a move on Polo's girlfriend. Polo arrives shortly after and diffuses the situation and the two leave for the bathroom to talk. Polo reveals their arrangement with Christian — that Christian is unaware of — but Guzmán doesn't understand what Polo gains from the "game". Lu talks with Martín in his classroom after the lesson, where she blackmails Martín into rising her grade so that she may appear the smartest in the school. Nadia interrupts Guzmán's swim and the two take photographs for the social media project.

Samuel and Nano's house trashed by thugs

Samuel returns home after school to find his house ransacked. His mother tells him that some men came looking for Nano, and Samuel questions if it was the same guys from La Cabaña. Nano dismisses Nano's questions and his mother becomes increasingly confused about the situation and too begins to question what guys Samuel is referring to and what mess Nano is in. Nano and Samuel talk and he reveals that he owes a lot of money to the people who protected him whilst in prison. Nano tells Samuel that he knows about Marina's father's documents and he can use them for blackmail, or sell them for money — Samuel is horrified by his brother's suggestion, but changes his mind later on and promises to get Nano the papers.

Ander returns home to find his parents have ransacked his room in search of the drugs. Ander questions how they found the drugs, and his father reveals that Guzmán informed them. His father is adamant that this could ruin his career, however Ander remarks that it is only the second time he has bought.

Polo tells Carla that they should drop the thing with Christian, given the whole idea sounds stupid. Carla doesn't want to, however and it becomes clear that she is enjoying the situation. Carla remarks that the two of them are anything but normal, therefore shouldn't conform and should continue experimenting.

Samuel and Marina work on the project

A flash-forward shows Carla's interrogation finishing and Polo being invited in. Carla hugs Polo and whispers in his ear that Guzmán is the suspect.

Later the following day, Marina and Samuel work on the social media project at her house. Samuel uses this as an opportunity to search Marina's house — and her father's office — for the papers. He is interrupted by Nadia, however, who is studying with Guzmán at the same house. Nadia tells Samuel that her father is on the phone and wants confirmation that she is studying at his house, to which he confirms.

Christian and Polo argue at Carla's house

Marina arrives and asks what Samuel is doing, and he reveals that he couldn't find the bathroom; Marina suspects nothing and tells Samuel that the bathroom is at the other end of the house.

Christian arrives at Carla's house as planned and the two begin making out. Christian becomes alarmed when they are interrupted by Polo, however, but Polo quickly remarks that it is fine. Christian becomes alarmed when Polo reveals that he watched him and Christian together the other night, causing Christian to leave in a horrified rush. Carla tells Polo that he shouldn't have told Christian, however Polo is glad that the information is out.

Quotes[edit | edit source]

Inspectora: "So, according to you, everything started with the arrival of the new students."
Lu: "When a new species is introduced into an ecosystem, it is always altered. The new one can devastate the flora and fauna of a place, breed endlessly, or cause more subtle changes which end up perverting everything."
Inspectora: "Are you referring to the new students as if they were another species?"
Lu: "I don't want to believe that Marina's dead."

Martín: "Nowadays, we use social networks to present ourselves to others. What we show, or what we hide, says a lot about who we are. And this is what the pair work I want you to do is about. I want you to create your partner's profile for a social network."

Samuel: "Nano, are those burgers ready?"
Nano: "Almost there. Why the hurry?"
Samuel: "Get a move on. I said you had experience. They're complaining."
Nano: "Samu, don't bust my balls."
Samuel: "Hurry."
Nano: "Here you are. We were so happy in this town without these snobs!"

Samuel: "Sorry."
Guzmán: "Hey, waiter, thank you. I've had faster service."
Samuel: "Sorry. We have new staff."
Guzmán: "I wish you were as good at working as you are at making excuses. This is overcooked."
Samuel: "You know I can't answer back. That's why you're doing this."
Guzmán: "He's talking to me."
Ander: "Just eat it. It looks good."

Guzmán: "Ander. What's up, man?"
Ander: "Hey."
Guzmán: "How was training yesterday?"
Ander: "Good. Very good, man. My dad's cracking the whip, but it's good."
Guzmán: "Okay. Listen. You know you can tell me anything?"
Ander: "Sure, I know."
Guzmán: "I mean, we've been friends our entire lives."
