WARNING: This story contains spoilers
What happens to Samuel in Elite season 5?
A flash-forward showed a man’s body floating face-down in a pool, with blood coming from his head.
He seems to be dead and fans were desperate to identify the figure.
They soon discovered Samuel was the one in the pool and as he is one of the main characters, the revelation shocked viewers.
Samu had proof that Benjamín (Diego Martín) had been working with Armando.
Understandably, the former was not happy and went to confront Samu to retrieve the incriminating SIM card.

During the tussle, Samu fell into the pool, hitting his head on the concrete.
He was able to get up and start walking away, but soon collapsed again and fell unconscious.
As Benjamín was taken away by police, Samu’s friends were heartbroken as they thought he had died.
The series has not confirmed whether the main character survived the head trauma.
The sixth season will undoubtedly reveal whether his injury was fatal or not.
Fans took to Twitter to react to the final moments of the latest outing.
Mikhaylowwa said: “They dragged out Samuel’s storyline a lot. If he had been sent to London in s3, everything would have been fine.
“But in s5, he had only two options – death or prison. #Elite5 #EliteNetflix.” [Sic]
Olasunkanmi said: “Since there is season 6 of Elite, I guess Samuel didn’t die. #Elite5.”
CandyLovejoy however, believing the main character did die, said: “I can’t believe this is how they said goodbye to Samuel’s character lmao you either live enough to ruin your character arc or you get killed in this show #Elite5.” [Sic]
Elite seasons 1-5 are on Netflix now. The series has been renewed for a sixth season.
