This recap of Elite Season 2, Episode 7, “84 Hours Missing”, contains spoilers. You can check out our thoughts on the previous episode by clicking these words.
These days, it’s easy to imagine that everything you do and say is recorded and catalogued somewhere for later use — possibly against you. Elite very much likes that idea. With a damning audio recording floating around and a sex tape proving to be a major plot point in “84 Hours Missing”, this penultimate episode has a finger on the pulse of revenge-**** topicality and our always-online society.
The filmed sex is between Guzmán (Miguel Bernardeau) and Nadia (Mina El Hammani), filmed by Valerio (Jorge López), and eventually passed on to Lu (Danna Paola). Lu is the MVP of “84 Hours Missing”, managing to blow the series wide open by taking the lid off various bubbling subplots and letting everything spill out. She lays into Cayetana (Georgina Amorós), puts the video of Guzmán and Nadia on the internet, reveals that Samuel (Itzan Escamilla) is sleeping with Carla (Ester Expósito), and generally turns the whole season on its head in a shocking and also strangely satisfying series of outbursts.
Meanwhile in “84 Hours Missing”, Ander (Arón Piper) is still desperate for Polo (Álvaro Rico) to reveal the truth, but can’t bring himself to do so on his behalf. Even when approached directly by Guzmán, he’s unable to tell the truth. But with chaos unfolding as a result of this penultimate episode, the truth can only be around the corner.
