If you're here, I'm assuming you've already binged Season 3 of Elite on Netflix. And if you're anything like me, you probably cried — a LOT.
While this season was filled with lots of heart-wrenching moments, the storyline that broke my heart the most was Omar and Ander's relationship.
I've been super invested in Omar and Ander's relationship since Season 1. Even though they've had their share of problems, they've remained one of the strongest couples on the show. After a rocky Season 2, I was looking forward to seeing them finally get to be happy this season!
Except that's not what we got at all. Instead, we got a devastating storyline — Ander is diagnosed with leukemia.
Ander believes he only has a few months left to live, and he starts to push Omar away.
Then, in the midst of all this, Omar starts cheating on Ander...with his sister's boyfriend.
Ander finds out about Omar's affair and breaks up with him. However, Ander doesn't confront him about the cheating. Instead, he lies and tells Omar that he's been cheating on him.
Eventually, Omar realizes he only wants to be with Ander. Ander tells him he's in remission, and they get back together.
Okay, so technically they get their happily ever after. But I'm still not happy, TBH. For one, the writers put Omar and Ander through WAY too much. 😕
Omar cheating on Ander also feels super out of character for him.
And they never even address the cheating! Ander never confronts him, Omar never admits to the affair...they just get back together, and everything is forgiven.
I'll always have a soft spot in my heart for Omander, but I can't help but feel disappointed with their storyline this season. And I'm not the only one upset:
Omander may have gotten their endgame, but they still deserved better this season. And that's the tea!
