ELITE SEASON 3 PLOT (spoiler alert!)
The series revolves around three working-class students Samuel, Nadia, and Christian, who earn a scholarship to the most exclusive school in Spain, Las Encinas. This scholarship is funded by the construction industry, which was at fault for the collapse of the building of their previous school.
In the beginning, naturally, they are picked on by the other students who don’t consider them to be at the same level as theirs, but as the story progresses, we see the creation of bonds and relations between everyone, ultimately somehow leading to Marina’s murder.
The third season shows the last year at the Las Encinas school. Many stories intervene with each other. On the one hand, we see Ander struggling with leukemia and undergoing chemotherapy and facing a rough patch with his loved ones, while on the other hand, Lu and Nadia are seen to be competing for the same Columbia scholarship.
Moreover, the students are also seen to be interrogated for Polo’s death. His death is finally declared to be a suicide, and his parents admit that he was guilty of Marina’s murder.
