Isa is against it but Roberta goes ahead with it.

Sara is feeling unwell and keeps scratching her arms and neck. Raul tries to cancel his plans but she says she is fine and leaves. At school, she writes on the app that she wants to be alone as she feels trapped. Her PE teacher, Jessica tells her she is underperforming. She spots the rashes on her body and Sara says she is just allergic.

Later, Joel tells Omar to back off and not be clingy as Omar once again goes on a tirade of Las Encinas changing and hurting his friends. Joel goes and tells Ivan that he will quit school if Omar makes him uncomfortable. But Ivan is just happy to be his friend and help him. Meanwhile, Chloe eyes Ivan as her next target and Sonia is disgusted with her.

As for Didac and Isa, they cut classes and hang out with Amazona. Isa is upset as the mare had hurt herself in the last race. Didac offers to help her whisk away the horse before the race as Isa’s mother has a pass to the stable.

Raul and Sara livestream the charity race but he is upset as they are always separate and is passive agressive with her. When the organiser, Principal Virginia refuses to pay due to Sara offering to do it for free, Raul lashes out at her. He says they are broke and have lost brand deals because of Sara ruining their image.

Chloe eyes Ivan but then spots her mother eyeing him too and is confused. Isa tries to get the pass but fails. Luis tells Didac he won’t judge him and he’s there if Didac wants to talk about his family. Didac is confused but Luis plays it off. He then spots Pau who has been invited by Roberta but Didac tells him to leave. Pau is hurt and tells him he is making a mistake. 

Joel kisses Ivan’s cheek before going to get a drink. Carmen tries to talk to him but Chloe is annoyed and tells her to back off. She tries to patch up with Ivan and hits on him by sending him her sex tape with Eric. He is awkward but is all smiles when Joel shows up. Omar keeps calling him and Joel is frustrated.

Joel then tells Ivan how he and Omar met when they were both at rock bottom. Now, he is not sure if it is co-dependence or love. Ivan sympathises and tells him about Samuel. At home, Omar is about to take multiple pills but Joel interrupts and comforts him.

Eric is missing and Nico and Rocio find him at the homeless shelter where the cops are planning a raid again. He is furious but Rocio calms him down and tells him to work within the system. Her mom is a judge and she promises to help. 

A bored Chloe asks Sonia about her and Nico. Sonia says she likes him but is sick of suffering. Nico also talks about it to Eric who tells him to apologise and he heads her way.

Ivan is alone in the bathroom when he gets Omar’s message thanking him for helping out with Joel. He also comforts him that Patrick would never hurt him. Chloe finds him and hits on him. Sonia and Nico hang out and are having fun. She is still upset about Ari but he promises to make it up and they kiss.

She tries to go after Ivan but Carmen finally reveals that Ivan is Chloe’s brother. Meanwhile, Amazona is poisoned and Roberta blames Pau while Isa cries. Didac is upset about his family and Luis comforts him.

The next day, Sara is up early and recalls Jessica confronting her. She tells her that she had a similar ex like Raul who emotionally blackmailed her into having his way. She tells Sara that she needs to fight it. At school, Sara spots Ivan listening to Patrick’s message and comes up with a plan.

Sara tells Raul that Ivan is catching up on them and they should ask him to move in so they can control the narrative of the hit-and-run. This way, Ivan can help pay the rent. She then tells Ivan that his house has too many memories of Cruz and Patrick and that he should get a fresh start. 

Meanwhile, Joel says he will quit school as Omar is his top priority. Omar is touched but says he is the problem and he should get over his trauma by backing off. He decides to quit the internship. But before he can, he sees a cry for help on the app at the end of episode 2 of Elite season 7.

The Episode Review

The dialogues are really cheesy and the way some of the characters are behaving is extremely childish. Even the adults, like why is Pau threatening his own brother? And pretty sure that Joel is getting on everyone’s nerves. He asks for trust from Omar but then flirts with Ivan, hello? 

The only interesting thing, so far in episode 2 of Elite season 7, is the Carmen-Ivan arc and Luis’ undercover operation. And oh, thank goodness, Sara finally standing up for herself, even if she is manipulating poor Ivan. But this doesn’t bode well for this season as there are so many characters yet none of them are making their mark. Isa and Didac are giving discount Samuel and Marina while whatever Rocio and Eric are supposed to do is unfolding at a snail’s pace.
