The Hockey Girls Episode 10 finds the girls in mourning following Pela’s (Xúlio Abonjo) untimely demise, but that isn’t much of a concern for Terrats (Nora Navas), who is still pushing them to play. In an act of solidarity, they all skip their upcoming match in order to be with Lore (Mireia Oriol) in her time of need.
Sílvia (Mireia Aixalà) is also struggling in “Together”. Enric (Josep Linuesa) tries to be there for her, but she just wants to spend time with her children. While Lore is openly grieving, Òscar (Nil Cardoner) is keeping his emotions bottled up, though Raquel (Júlia Gibert) is able to get through to him a little bit by convincing him to at least communicate with his friends. Nil is able to help him process losing a parent, having experienced the same thing himself when he lost his mother, but he later has a serious emotional breakdown in front of his stunned friends — an emotional highlight of The Hockey Girls Episode 10, even if it was tragic to watch.
Montse (Aida Oset) agrees to defend Anna (Iria del Río) in her upcoming hearing, and she lays out the potential outcomes for her, which include paying out a substantial amount of money or potentially going to prison for up to three years. Santi (Juli Fàbregas) warns Terrats that Núria (Àgata Roca) will be staying with him at weekends and that, despite their separation, he’d still rather she didn’t know about his liaison with Terrats. She’s unconcerned about that, having finally come to terms with the fact that she already has a child — Berta (Natàlia Barrientos).
Things are still frosty between Emma (Dèlia Brufau) and Laila (Yasmina Drissi) since the former convinced the latter to eat the pot. In other minor conflicts, Lore is furious that Sílvia wants to bury Pela when his wishes were to have his ashes scattered; the girls visit his farmhouse to retrieve a tape of his music and then venture out to an idyllic spot where he used to take Lore and Òscar rock climbing when they were kids. This, according to Lore, would be the perfect place to “set him free”.
Sílvia still feels guilty about the argument she had with Pela the night before he died, but Òscar touchingly and maturely sets her mind at ease. Later, when Lore tells them where she is, they all travel together along with Rosa and Pela’s bandmate Ray to scatter Pela’s ashes.
