Guzmán attempts to make amends. Nadia threatens payback when she and Lu go after the same scholarship. Ander comes clean to his loved ones.
The scholarship program immediately catches Nadia’s eye—having lost a scholarship because of the video of her and Guzmán taken before, she really needs this. Nadia doesn’t want to take part in something that is in any way related to Polo but unfortunately, she doesn’t have much choice.
But someone else is in a similar boat— Lucrecia. Her dad has cut her and Valerio off—but Lu still wants to follow her dreams. She applies for the programme as well, despite the school principal imploring her to allow space for others who are less fortunate.
Emboldened by Azucena, Nadia decides to threaten Lu— withdraw from the programme or Nadia will let everyone know about Lu and Valerio. She’s quite convincing, as well. Enough to force Lu into divulging her secret to Nadia—that she needs the scholarship now because she has no money. Nadia admits that she was never going to tattle about Lu and Valerio— though Lu did share that video of Nadia with the entire school.
With Nano having settled abroad and living an anonymous, but peaceful, life, Samuel’s mother has decided to join him. Samuel would have gone as well, but Polo is still out and about, and he needs to clear Nano’s name. But that’s left Samuel without a roommate and a lot of rent to pay. Rebeca has a plan to help— Valerio is sleeping in his car and living off of illicit drugs. He could sell his car to pay rent and move in with Samuel.
Unfortunately, Valerio is too proud for that—he would rather party it up with Rebeca’s mother in the hopes of scoring more drugs. Easier said than done—Sandra has made her kingdom with blood, sweat, and tears, as we had learned from Rebeca in the previous season of Elite. She notices Valerio stealing her goods and makes him pay for it—not with money. When Valerio is on his knees and grovelling, Sandra cuts him some slack and asks him to take a serious look at what he’s become.
Ander has been diagnosed with an aggressive form of leukemia. He needs an intense form of chemo to get through and the side effects will be awful. Rebeca is there with him when he meets the doctor and the shock of learning how fleeting life can be makes her question what is happening in her own life.
Rebeca does manage to convince Ander to tell his mother and Omar. Azucena is concerned but hopeful—she has to be, she’s his mom. Omar is ready to fight for Ander, but he won’t have it. In tragic hero style, Ander asks Omar to leave him—he deserves to have fun and be with other people, not take care of his ill boyfriend, who he hasn’t even been with very long.
When Guzmán invites Polo home to play video games, Polo jumps at the opportunity. Polo has no idea what he’s in for. Guzmán drugs Polo and ties him up. He calls Samuel for assistance before he does anything stupid. Then Guzmán puts on that video of Marina dancing that breaks him every time he watches it and he goes to town on Polo. Guzmán needs to know where the trophy is and he’ll do anything to find out. Fortunately, Samuel is there to reign Guzmán in. Polo admits he killed Marina by accident.
Yeray, who everyone thinks is a new student but was actually bullied out of school three years ago. He used to be a large boy and got teased. Carla, surprisingly, stood up for him. Now that Yeray’s ‘hot’, Carla decides he will have to take Samuel’s place.
