Elite Season 3 Plot: What can it be About?
Season 2 opens with the death of Marina Nunier Osuna. Throughout the season, we see Samuel leaving no stone unturned to find the killer of his girlfriend. He even fakes his own disappearance with the help of Marina’s adopted brother Guzman. Unbeknownst to anyone, Polo confesses to Cayetana that he killed Marina, and she helps him hide the murder weapon – a trophy. Pressurized by Samuel’s disappearance, Carla goes to the police and unmasks Polo, who denies everything and is let go by the police because of a lack of evidence. The season ends with Polo walking back to Las Encinas.
After being publicly exposed, Season 3 will feature a guilt-ridden Polo, aiming to redeem himself after murdering Marina. But not for long, as someone might kill Polo. And the fingers point to almost every classmate – Marina’s ex-lover Samuel and brother Guzman might have done it to take revenge for her death. There’s a chance that Polo’s ex Carla can be responsible since she hates his gut after he almost ruined her life. Even Cayetana has the potential of being a killer as she has been blackmailing Polo, threatening to expose him. We can expect season 3 to have more incest scenes featuring Lu and his step brother Valerio. Ander and Omar might take their relationship to the next level.
