Élite (2018) s07e04 Episode Script

Punto y coma

Rocío Owono Durán. You can go.
Rocío's all right. They let her go.
Why don't you have clothes on?
Dude, if you don't come
out, my dad'll be pissed.
He can go fuck himself.
What's that smell? What did you do?
- Eric, what did you do?
- Get outta here!
Where's your cousin?
Okay, yeah. I've had enough.
Dad, he's not feeling well.
Let him stay home just this
once. Relax. It's not a big deal.
When he's like this, we leave him alone.
María, he can't just
do whatever he wants.
That's not how this works.
Good morning, family.
Good morning, honey. How
are you? You all right?
Yeah, Auntie. I'm great. Why?
Good morning.
And welcome to the first
Pan-African Gathering for Excellence.
Hey, Chloe!
As part of the Excellentia
Academic Global League,
today Las Encinas is proud to
present its exchange scholarships
with the two best private
schools on the African continent.
The Lua Jean school
in Maputo, Mozambique,
and Parkhurst College in
Cape Town, South Africa.
Thanks to the initiative
of the Catalina Durán
Hispanic-Pan-African Foundation.
I can't keep pulling strings
to get you out of this
sort of situation, Rocío.
I'm sorry, Mom.
The pressure on women that
look like us is triple.
You can't change things
through squatting.
Whereas as a judge, I can do something.
Take advantage of the
education we're giving you
to try and learn to change
things in an intelligent way.
And a civilized one.
Your gear for the match and your
dress for the gala are in the trunk.
Get them and go inside.
C'mon. Let me skip school.
I'm exhausted. I need a shower.
You can shower and change at school.
I've been organizing this
with Virginia for a while.
What's up?
I keep texting, and no response.
Am I smothering you?
Look, Iván, you said you'd
be fine with just friendship.
So we can be friends
and also classmates.
But ultimately, we've
got our own lives to live.
Did you talk to Omar?
See you in class.
Guys, this is Fikile.
She's a student from
Parkhurst. Um, Cape Town.
- Hi. How are you?
- Hi.
So you guys can talk a
bit about the exchange.
Okay? Have a seat. Have fun.
- Nice to meet you guys.
- Nice to meet you.
Uh, and you can call me Fiks.
Are any of you guys gonna
apply for the exchange?
- I don't think so.
- Mm. Not for now, no.
Ah, okay.
Holy shit! What the
fuck is wrong with you?
Just come down here.
- Why?
- I got something to show you.
Yeah, I'm good.
You're goddamn annoying.
Come down. Pretty please.
Now what?
It's on our playlist.
Don't you ever get tired of degrading
yourself to get some attention?
You make sex tapes. You tell me.
Sorry. I'm just trying
to be cool with you,
but you keep locking me out.
Yeah. Well, I never asked you to.
For real? That's awful.
They arrested me, and he did nothing.
He confuses me.
After that and walking in on me,
he came home, head covered in blood.
And this morning, he was
impossible to deal with.
Five minutes later, he's
singing like nothing was wrong.
You know one of his tattoos
is a semicolon, right?
I don't know. He has so many bruises,
it's hard to tell what's what.
- Why?
- Go, Rocío! Let's go!
Was that him just now?
Rocío! Rocío!
Listen, dude.
I'm gonna have to keep
him at arm's length.
- I hope you understand.
- No, yeah. I do. I get it.
Rocío! Rocío!
- Are they asking for help or something?
- No, he's excited.
Let's go, team!
Over here! Pass!
Hey. Hey. Why don't we
get out of here? Yeah?
- Are you okay?
- Yeah. Yeah.
Are you sure?
I'm fine. Thanks.
Come on.
Let's go.
I never imagined that a casual
match would have that effect.
You must've had an inkling.
Otherwise, you would've played.
- Right?
- Mm-hmm.
Why don't you apply for the exchange?
Go to South Africa. That way,
you can get a break, you know?
Time and distance really
are the best medicine.
How do I apply for this exchange?
I'll show you.
90% of people who kill themselves
show warning signs beforehand.
People think they're
cries for attention.
And they're not. They're reaching out.
I'll pass your reports on to the
Psychology and Pedagogy Department.
And that's it?
They're the experts, Omar.
Whereas you just do the paperwork.
Was there anything else?
A list of students getting
scholarships for tuition.
That's confidential, and you know it.
Son of a bitch.
Okay. I sent you the app login.
So you can read and reply if you
see anything out of the ordinary.
I can't handle this alone,
and that idiot Luis is useless.
Is that why you haven't responded?
You don't think you're capable?
And because I once said
those same words myself.
It's just too much for me.
How'd you pull yourself out?
It's Joel from the
association. Do you remember me?
Get outta here.
Omar, please, don't do this.
Go away, please.
Omar, look at me.
No. I can't anymore.
No. I just can't.
Omar, please, look at me.
Don't do this.
Please, Omar.
That's it. There you go.
That's better.
That writing style rings a bell.
Wanna take over?
Do you think some people are evil?
I mean, born that way?
I think there are
people in lots of pain.
Hey. I'm so sorry for
leaving you in the lurch.
I'd blow me off too. I was a coward.
Well, you've apologized
now. Thanks. See you.
Please don't be mad at me.
- It's not like we're super close friends.
- Yeah, but we could be, though.
After that moment we shared in the
squat house, it was fuckin' great.
- Until it all went to shit.
- I gotta run. Sorry.
I know I'm a piece of shit
who disappoints everyone.
That's why I always end up alone!
Eric, not right now.
What else could it be?
Fear? I scare you? Just tell me.
Tell me I scare you and that
you'd rather ghost me entirely.
'Cause I'm not worth it.
You don't get my actions,
and it's scaring you away.
Like my parents.
Or don't say anything.
So I can stop thinking
that you were ever worth it.
Hey! Eric! Hey!
Eric, look at me. Breathe.
Come on, breathe.
That's it. You got this.
That's it. Calm down. I'm here.
Tonight, we've seen
a lot of bling-bling,
but one more gem's gotta shine.
will you be my wife?
Baby, are you okay?
I mean, I think your
boyfriend was being a bit extra
with that proposal, to be honest.
We're too young to be putting
all of our eggs in one basket.
How's it going with Dídac?
Yeah, it's going all right.
I'm still trying to forget
about him, but it's fine.
Anyway, nothing that a good
party can't cure, my darling.
Okay, guys!
Let's show our African friends how
we throw a good party here, right?
Oh no, honey.
It is us who have come to show you.
Oh, honey. We'll see.
Oh, yes, we will.
C'mon, party! Whoo!
Are you sure people are
not gonna hate us for this?
This is not cultural appropriation?
Girl, what? No. We are
the organizers, okay?
We gave you this dress code
because we want you to have a
full, immersive party experience.
Love it. You guys are in
charge. This is your home.
- You can do whatever you want.
- Thank you.
How is he?
He took the pill, calmed down, and
went to bed, but he was a wreck.
Coz! Why aren't you dressed yet?
- What are you talking about?
- They're all at the party.
Well, maybe you should
stay home tonight.
No. I'm in the mood to get turnt.
Plus, the African kids are
here. We gotta be good hosts.
Listen to your aunt.
- You got three minutes, Nico.
- I don't think you should go out.
- You're not coming? Then I'm out.
- Eric.
- Later.
- Eric, dear. Wait a minute
Nico. Nico, honey. Tag along.
Please keep an eye on him.
Shit, María. He'll
take Nico down with him.
Dad, don't worry about
me. I can handle it.
Can you think of a better idea?
Are you serious?
Tell me you're not serious right now.
You know who they remind me of?
- Who?
- My parents, when they're fighting.
I see.
My parents fight all the
time too, to be honest.
Do you think you and I will
be like that 20 years from now?
Hysterical, frustrated, and loud?
I mean, I think that the worst
snake oil they try to sell us in life
is the urge to grow up.
Because when you do, and
life just knocks you down,
then you're like these two morons.
And then, all you want to do is
to be our age again and immature.
Let's make the most of
it while we're young.
- What's up?
- I'm not sure.
- Ooh.
- What?
Something's up with
the music. That's weird.
- No.
- I gotta go.
- No.
- Yeah, I gotta fix it. I'll see you later.
- Yeah, from afar.
- For heaven's sake.
I'm leaving.
- Get away from me!
- Jesus fucking Christ!
I truly appreciate you
meeting with me again.
Seriously, I'm telling you.
It's really wonderful, the way
that you've been working, Cata.
Thank you. Again, please forgive
me for rushing you so much.
With this eviction, it
would cause us to lose time.
Luena, don't leave yet.
While they gain opportunities.
Don't you get it?
Huh? Huh?
There. Two hundred.
Feel free to count it,
Catalina. Take your time.
I trust you.
But this is the last favor, Martín.
- It's always the last one.
- No.
When I moved the social
center's eviction ahead,
my daughter was arrested.
I'm not putting myself at risk anymore.
She says she moved the eviction
up. Find me judges named Catalina.
- We don't have a warrant for it, though.
- Well, he's bribing her, so fuck that.
- Oh shit.
- What?
Her daughter goes to school
with Isadora and Dídac.
Sheesh! ♪
- What's up? ♪
- Sheesh! ♪
- What's up? ♪
- Sheesh! ♪
What's up ♪
Dídac, where are you?
You're taking absolutely forever.
Are you in my room? I'll be right there.
I'm leaving.
I don't believe it.
Why didn't you tell me you were coming?
- Hello, my darling.
- Hello!
- Wanted to surprise you.
- How are you?
I just wanted to see the
look of surprise on your face.
Oh, I missed you so much.
- Yeah. I'm so happy to be here.
- Hi, Isa.
- Mm.
- I'm going.
- Talk later.
- Yeah.
- Sweetie, you are gorgeous.
- What was Rocío's mother doing here?
- Don't worry. I'll explain it in a bit.
- Talking about exchange scholarships.
Ultimately, we pay a
ton of money for them.
And us parents have to deal
with everything. It's not fair.
Mom, if I wanted to be lied to,
I would've asked you, but I asked Papá.
- See how she treats me? All the time.
- Can we please Yeah.
Let's, uh, try to play nice
and have a drink. Us three.
- It'll be so nice after all this time.
- Come on, dear.
- It's been too long.
- Let's go.
Let's go. Come on.
Our social media engagement has grown
like gangbusters since the announcement.
Everyone, and I mean
everyone, is writing to us.
They're offering us megabucks
for wedding collaborations.
Blown away, for real.
Okay. Why's a teacher texting a student?
Just class stuff.
At night, though?
I mean, is she in
love with you, or what?
Huh? Is that it?
What are you talking about?
Here's to Sara and Raúl.
What's good, guys?
- Hey. What's up?
- Look, here we are with Saraul.Goals.
Yeah! And also with the
African exchange students,
who've come to teach us a lesson
about the right way to throw a party.
- Here's to all you beautiful people.
- Yep. Hello. See you later.
- All together!
- Have you seen this?
- Come on.
- He wants to be an influencer.
- He's in for a rude awakening.
- What makes you say that?
The drinks, the lights,
the music, everything
Well, since he has a
few thousand followers,
he says that he can live off
that if he puts in the time.
- He'll quit working?
- He better not.
I can't pay more for this apartment
'cause he wants to scratch
his dick and post stories.
I know I'm doing everything wrong.
And honestly, I
I didn't want to hurt either of you.
In the end, I'm hurting both of you.
But the thing is
the thing is, I need
to do right by Omar.
Because I love him, and
and I feel like I feel
like I'm letting him down.
And we don't deserve this.
Not you, me, or him.
Work things out with him.
And tell him he's a lucky guy.

You mean the shot or me?
You, for sure.
- I have to go.
- You're leaving?
Yeah, I have a super early
flight tomorrow, so
It was a pleasure.
It really was. I'll see
you in Cape Town, yeah?
- See you there.
- Yeah?
- Yeah.
- It's gonna be great.
- Yeah.
- Great.
- Bye.
- Bye.
- Mm.
- What was it you needed again?
I don't need someone to
remind me I'm a garbage human.
Just someone who's fucked up too.
And hates herself as much as I do.
You're such a piece of shit.
I think I'll have a gin.
Chloe! What's wrong?

Wanna head out?
Uh, sure. Here.
Hey, Sara?
Am I a monster?
Why are you asking that?
I know I have a lot of room to grow,
but I only tried to love
you and be protective.
Well, yeah. I know.
Do you really?
I do.
What's this about?
Forget it.
Thanks for letting me vent.
If you need anything, you know I'm here.
Yeah. I appreciate it.
Oh, my mother. I gotta go.
Thank you.
Take care.
Sweetheart, aren't you
freezing your butt off?
- What's up with your eyes?
- Nothing.
Don't tell me it's nothing.
You're like a sad puppy dog.
What's the matter?
Why were you hugging Iván, crying?
Honey, I hope you weren't
thinking about trying
Fuck. Ew, Mom. Of course not.
I mean, Iván's awesome.
He just listened to me and
supported me when I needed it.
It's so nice to hear
you say that, darling.
That's what I want, you
two bonding and connecting.
Mom, can you maybe stop
thinking about your fucking plan
and think about me?
What plan? What are you saying?
Hey, Chloe.
Chloe, c'mon, now.
Chloe, talk to me.
He wants to do the exchange
program. So he can get a fresh start.
Where to?
South Africa.
- Where?
- Yes. And we're gonna leave him alone.
'Cause what he needs is time
and space to find himself again.
Not to have a dopey mother show
up. Much less me as a sister.
Fasten your seat belt.
You seen my cousin anywhere?
I'm really worried about him.
- Exactly.
- You know, to give each other
It's nice that all three of
us are together as a family.
Yeah. It'd be nice if it didn't
happen once in a blue moon.
- No more excuses.
- Hmm.
What did I say earlier?
- But do you promise?
- See? Look.
- Like when she was little.
- Hon, I promise.
You'll be seeing me
a lot more frequently.
- I better.
- Of course you will, my love.
Mm. Hm.
I missed you.
Okay. I have something I have
to handle, but I'll be back.
Where are you going?
- Can't you stay longer? She's nonstop.
- Just for a sec.
- She's nonstop.
- Hurry back.
- Do not badmouth my father.
- You're not hearing what I said.
- I'm listening.
- I saw it. It's not like I heard about it.
- Have you seen Eric?
- No.
Oh! Tell her. Go on.
That her mom's corrupt and
doing business with my father.
- We can pull the wool off all our eyes.
- She what now?
Never mind. We haven't seen
Eric. I don't know where he is.
- What'd you say about my mother?
- Nothing, Rocío. Forget it.
- I'm kinda in the middle of an argument.
- But why'd you bring up my mother?
Get over it, Rocío. I didn't mean
it. Can I have an argument in peace?
- All right, look. I don't
- No.
- Why don't you believe my own eyes?
- Dídac, I'm begging you.
Don't say anything. You're
driving me up the wall.
What you want?
- Let me go! Bastard!
- Calm down.
- Son of a bitch!
- What's going on?
Let me go!
He was throwing himself
against the windows.
We restrained him to keep him
from cracking his head open.
Jesus, Eric!
Fuck off, all right?
I don't understand why
you'd rather beat yourself up
than ask us for help.
You're the one pushing us away.
Nico, I've gotta go.
So do you think it's my fault
that those I care about abandon me?
Yeah, no fucking way.
We'll see how long you last.
On the bright side,
now we can be a family.
Come on. Together.
You need to give her a break.
Can you fix yourself up? Thank you.
She'll make mistakes here and there.
But she's always wanted
what was best for you.
What's the matter?
You all right?
What's the matter?
Are you bribing Rocío's mother?
Nobody move!
Police! This is a raid!
We ask for your cooperation!
- Move!
- Get over there.
I need you to stay over there!
Come on.
Come here.
I know. It got a bit wet.
You're very quiet.
Is it true you got a scholarship?
Well, all right.
Okay, then, how are
you paying for school?
Someone offered to pay.
Who? In return for?
For nothing.
You answered the second
part but not the first.
That doesn't matter.
I know it's Iván.
Anything else?
That's all there is.
I think there's more.
Are you in love with him?
I'm not sure.
I'm not sure.
But I don't want to leave you.
You scared for me?
You'll stay in something
that makes you unhappy?
I'm not unhappy with you.
We both know you've checked
out of this relationship.
- Be with him.
- What?
- I couldn't. No.
- Joel, honey. I mean it. Go there.
No, Omar. I can't do
this to you. I won't.
- But it's what you want.
- No, I don't. I'm in love with you.
And I love you, but don't
stay out of a sense of debt.
I'm in your debt, really.
There's nothing to repay.
Great. Neither of us owes anything.
There's no debt, just love.
And my love won't let me be the bastard
who keeps you from living out your life.
Be with him.
Go, and I'll clean this up.
Goddammit, Mom.
The fuck are you doing?
Just talking to Iván. He cannot
go to the other side of the world.
Okay. Aren't you his mother?
Think what's best for him.
He doesn't need you, Mom.
He doesn't need us. Not now.
Please, I said no.
Jesus Christ.
- Hi.
- Hi, sweetheart.
I came to thank you for how
nicely you treated Chloe.
No worries. She needed a friend.
See? You're such an
angel. Can we come in?
I'd also like to talk to you
about something important.
- Is something the matter?
- No.
Can I tell you in there?
Sure, come in.
Coming or not?
- Hello.
- Hello.
Why are you here?
Well, I came to see you, but
but I can leave if you're busy.
No, you're good. I swear.
You can come in 'cause
we were just leaving.
Mom, you and I are going home.
Hey, are you all right?
So you know, for me, it was also one
of the best nights in a long time.
Now, let's go.
Iván deserves a good time, okay?
I'm going to tell him, Chloe.
Okay. But how 'bout
another day, all right?
Omar? Omar?
Oh God. Omar!
