As graduation day arrives, the futures of multiple students remain uncertain. Polo begs his mothers to reconsider their recent decision.
Rebeka and Valerio await a meeting with Azucena over the fight with Polo and the drugs. Rebeka receives a call from a withheld number, but declines the call and assumes it is from broadband suppliers. Nadia approaches and questions if the allegations that Rebeka and Valerio were selling drugs are true, but the two are called into Azucena’s office before they can answer. As they are about to be interrogated, Begoña arrives shortly after and pressures Azucena into meeting with her first.
Nadia and Omar talk, with Omar expressing how low his grades are. Omar tells Nadia that he probably will not graduate and that now he doesn’t have Ander. Nadia suggests that Omar leave for New York with her for a fresh start. Omar is bemused by the offer, but the two ask Malick if this would be possible, with Omar living at Malick’s flat temporarily. Nadia remarks that Omar and Malick know each other well, however Malick remarks that the two were just a hook-up; a notion that offends Omar. Despite his initial reservations, Malick agrees to the situation.
In class, Nadia and Guzmán talk about Valerio and Rebeka’s situation. Everyone blames Polo for reporting the drugs, with Guzmán angry, but Nadia cites that Polo did the right thing. Despite this, it is never confirmed if Polo made the complaint.
Azucena interrupts class, calling Samuel and Guzmán into her office. Despite pleas from Valerio that Guzmán and Samuel were not involved in the drug dealing, they are expelled from Las Encinas anyway along with Valerio and Rebeka. Rebeka becomes increasingly angry, remarking that the expulsions are a result of Polo’s mothers. Samuel is furious at the situation and storms into class, ready to attack Polo. He is held back by Guzmán however, and Nadia remarks that Polo is innocent in the accusations. Samuel fires back at Nadia, remarking that she is only defending him so she doesn’t feel bad about accepting the scholarship.
A flash-forward to the night Polo died reveals a conversation between Nadia and Lu, in which Lu tells Nadia that she would find it joyful to smash a bottle of champagne over Polo’s head.
Back in the present, Polo feels as though the expulsions are his fault. He remarks that if his parents had let him transfer, none of this would’ve happened and the four would still be on track to graduate. Cayetana tells Polo that they must find a way to fix the situation, however when Polo accuses Valerio of causing Carla’s near-death, she snaps, remarking that it was all her fault, and Valerio had promised to stop selling. Guzmán and Samuel talk, and it becomes clear that Guzmán is done hating Polo. He tells Samuel that despite all of the energy they have put into hating Polo — and ensuring he knows it — Polo is happier than ever and it is the two of them who are expelled.
Ander talks with his mother during recess. He tells Azucena that what she has done to Samuel and Guzmán — and perhaps Valerio and Rebeka — is unfair, and that they shouldn’t be punished. Azucena tells Ander that he doesn’t understand, and would need to be in her shoes to understand. With this, Ander tells her that he will not spend the rest of the time he has left studying for exams; instead, he will take time alone to prepare. Azucena is confused and alerted at Ander’s statement, citing that she was not aware he didn’t have long left. Repeating what his mother said, Ander tells her that she would have to be in his shoes to understand.
Rebeka arrives home to find that her mother has been released from prison, and that the phone calls earlier were from her. Rebeka reveals to her mother that she got kicked out of school for selling drugs, prompting an impressed Sandra to remark that the two could start their own drug empire.
Ander arrives home from school to find Guzmán in his kitchen. Ander realises that Azucena has called him — worried about the outcome of their earlier discussion — and the two exit outside. Ander questions why nobody can understand that he does not have long left. With this, Guzmán tells him that they can spend time together doing whatever he wants; he asks Ander not to isolate himself, however. Ander attempts to walk off, but is stopped by Guzmán and breaks down as the two hug.
Polo lies in bed listening to a voicemail from Cayetana in which she asks Polo to convince his mothers to readmit Valerio to school, given he has learned his lesson. He is interrupted by Begoña, who questions what Polo will wear to the graduation party the following day, however Polo tells her he is not interested in attending. The two talk about Samuel and Guzmán’s expulsion, with Polo reiterating that it is unfair.
Having been ignoring Carla for numerous days, Yeray is surprised to see her when she visits his house. Carla apologises for her behaviour and hands back Yeray’s keys. Carla tells Yeray to stop playing the victim, as he clearly was only interested in Carla’s image. He reluctantly accepts this as the truth, and the two fix their broken friendship. Later, they meet with Teo to sign the winery contract. Yeray announces that there has been a change and that Carla will be in charge of the wineries. Teo is confused and reluctant to sign the contract, however Yeray makes it clear that without Carla in charge, he will not fund the business; Teo reluctantly signs amid fears of loosing his wealth.
At graduation, Guzmán’s parents arrive in a bid to convince Azucena to allow Guzmán to graduate. However, she refuses to re-admit Guzmán. Polo and Cayetana talk and he officially calls off their relationship. Whilst Cayetana frantically attempts to convince him that she loves him, he tells her that she only is in love with the life he could’ve given her.
The official graduation ceremonies begin, with Nadia and Lu called to the stage to collect their scholarship. The two dedicate their speech — and the award — to their friends at the back of the room who cannot graduate because of Polo’s actions. Lu gets carried away and begins viciously insulting Polo and his family, leading to Begoña abruptly calling off the scholarship in front of the whole school, much to their horror.
Samuel is called to the police station where the Inspector tells him that the deal made with foreign officials was a rouse, and that revealing Nano’s location has led to his arrest. The Inspector apologises, announcing that she was not aware of the rouse and believed the exchange to be fair, however Samuel is furious and blames the whole ordeal on her.
Later that night, Polo eats dinner with his parents. Fed up with living in denial, he reveals that he isn’t the perfect son and that he did in fact kill Marina. His parents are shocked, but attempt to steer the conversation off-course. Polo refuses to drop the conversation, and demands that his parents call the school and reinstate Nadia and Lu's scholarship.
At the graduation party, Guzmán and Nadia discuss where the graduation leaves their relationship, and the two kiss. Guzmán is happy that they are at least able to spend a little more time together with Nadia’s future uncertain. Omar finds Ander and the two talk about his plans to go to New York with Malick and Nadia. Ander tells him that the plans are a good idea, and the two hug one last time.
