Elite Review 5
The fifth season of the hit series Elite, it begins as in the previous ones, focusing on a new murder around which the story develops, made dark and mysterious by the continuous investigations of the police but on the whole it does not seem to create suspense to the viewer due to poorly addressed issues and a rather poor script. The protagonists are involved in some events without a development that leave many doubts. Omar always appears in the background, Rebeka is analyzed internally resulting in being detached from the story while the children of the principal Benjamin, Ari, Mencia and Patrick, are too tied to their relationships without taking on autonomous roles.
Even the new entries, namely Isadora, Ivan and Bilal, were introduced in the wrong way, almost as if they had already been part of the prestigious high school for some time. Despite this, they are the ones who give positive nuances to the new season as they have created, in parallel with the development of the story, dynamic events for the protagonists, differentiating the story at various points.
Positive was the role of Samuel, the main character of the story on which the writers focused in addition to the principal Benjamin, more analyzed than the previous season and who has assumed a central role in the course of the story. In fact, a parallelism was created between him and Samuel precisely to allow the story to continue to the end, as well as for the relationship between Philippe and Cayetana, intertwined continuously, leading the viewer to ask himself questions about how it will end.
So if the plot itself creates confusion, some characters are involved in significant events, made such also by the performances of the actors who have given the right expression to what happened to them. The season finale instead leaves everyone with bated breath as a great twist leaves open many hypotheses that will be developed in the sixth season, already confirmed by the producers. We just have to wait for a new chapter of Elite and witness new events that will cause a sensation in Las Encinas.
