Spanish shows have formed a niche in Netflix original contents. They continue to receive an overwhelming response from the audience, which is why the streaming service has become more and more focused on the stories it wants to import from Spain. Spanish language dramas took the world by storm with the success of ‘Narcos’. The recent success of ‘Money Heist’ has proved that there is a massively untapped potential in this market. Combine this with the craze of teen dramas and you have a perfect concoction to catch hold of the viewers’ fancy. ‘Elite’ is that potion right now. Brewing a mystery that is full of twists and turns, it gained the reputation for surpassing all expectations by delivering a mind-blowing twist in its first season. The show returned for a second run and didn’t let the fans down by any measure. If you haven’t yet caught up with it, head over to Netflix.
Summary of the Plot
The first season of ‘Elite’ended with a startling revelation. After turning over all the pages in Marina’s story, we come to know that the ones suspected for attacking her never came close to it. Polo, who had had no communication with her throughout the season, was the one to kill her. However, he is saved by Carla and Christian, while Nano is arrested for the crime. The second season begins with another mystery. After another lavish party, one of the students has gone missing.
Meanwhile, the story flashes back to the time after the summer and we meet the characters, hardened by their experiences. Christian feels guilty for having abandoned Nano. He spent the summer with Carla, but all the riches couldn’t bring a respite to his conscience. He visits Nano at the prison, who rebukes him for knowing the truth and still collaborating with the enemy. Samuel spent the summer working various jobs to gather enough bail money for his brother. Guzman was at his grandparent’s house, recuperating from Marina’s death. He rekindled his relationship with Lu, who supported him every step of the way. Polo turned towards medication to help himself with the guilty conscience and the paranoia of getting caught.
Nadia returns to school with a renewed determination to stay on top of the class. Her father had put some conditions if she wanted to go back. But she makes it clear that she won’t be held back by any restrictions. Omar, too, has begun to realise the importance of accepting himself before expecting that from his parents. The reunion brings back all the emotions and old grudges are brought to the surface.
