As Felice tries to start a relationship with Wilhelm, he instead falls in love with Simon, who shows Wilhelm a different, non-elite life, watching football matches or riding motorcycles at night. Sara, who has autism and ADHD, becomes friends with Felice, as she helps Felice in the school stables, because Felice does not actually want to ride her horse, but only does so because her mother wishes so.
After Crown Prince Erik dies in a car crash, Wilhelm suddenly becomes first in line to the throne, but continues studying at Hillerska. One night, Simon and Wilhelm are secretly filmed by August being intimate. While August initially contemplates what to do with the video, he shares it publicly after Wilhelm discloses to their “secret society” that August’s family is broke and he can’t afford to study at Hillerska anymore (unbeknownst to August, Wilhelm had already arranged for August’s tuition to be paid for by the royal family).
An international scandal erupts and Wilhelm is forced by Queen Kristina to deny being in the video. Wilhelm eventually denies that it’s him in the sex tape, hurting Simon, who thought Wilhelm was accepting their love and coming out of the closet. Wilhelm goes to visit Simon at home and apologize, but Simon refuses to be his secret and the two break up.
