Elite season 5, episode 2 recap

In the flashforward, Rebe claims that Samuel “didn’t kill him.” Back to the present timeline and Caye asks if Prince Phillipe has thought any more about counseling, as she won’t wait around for him otherwise. There’s a fuss during school hours, as the students learn that Benjamin’s security means that he will know where all of the students are all of the time.

No one is happy about the situation, especially Patrick. He tells the other students that they are in charge, not Benjamin. And so, he invites them to a naked party. During his first counseling session, his counselor, Greta, bans him from drinking. After Mencia blows Rebe off once again, Rebe declares that she is finished with her as a result. Ari follows Samuel to the gym storage room, but as Benjamin can track their location, he disturbs them whilst having sex. After Ivan invites himself to Patrick’s party, Mencia decides that she wants to give her relationship with Rebe another try. So, Mencia says she will meet Rebe at the party.

At the party, Patrick announces that there are no rules. Benjamin finds footage of the party from social media, but as no students are connected, he remains clueless about their location. Isadora dishes out drugs. Patrick finds Ivan and his “unbreakable heterosexuality”, and they dance very sexually on the dancefloor. When Rebe speaks to him, Ivan maintains that he’s just playing, and after she gropes him, they make out. Mercia watches footage of the kiss whilst Patrick becomes livid when he spots them together. The drugs take effect, and Prince Phillipe and Patrick make out.

The ending

Which, just as it happens, Prince Phillipe films. And Caye sees. Ari and Samuel argue, with Ari asking who Samuel is trying to please, her or her father. So, to stop her nagging, he does drugs. As phones go online, Benjamin learns of their location. Patrick argues with Ivan over his sexuality, not having it that Ivan is straight. And so, to prove a point, Ivan makes out with Samuel. Caye enters the party and berates Prince Phillipe for drinking.

As the party continues, Patrick stumbles into his father before he throws up. And just imagine Benjamin’s disgust when he spots Samuel and Ari on the dancefloor. In a cut forward, Samuel drags a body as Rebe maintains that it wasn’t Samuel. I’m with Rebe, and I highly doubt that Samuel will be the season’s killer. As for the body that he’s dragging, I’m guessing that is Armando. And for the victim in the pool, it seems like it’s going to Prince Phillipe, but I think that Elite will have a couple of twists in place.
