    Was the last character in ÉLITƎ always a backwards E which almost makes the series logo an ambigram or was it added to the series logo in the third season to note a 3?

    could it be that it's a hint that the series is about "turning" someone? Also I think that Etile means in spanish "ethics". Apr 7, 2020 at 8:15
  • The Event had it's second "e" mirrored too! It usually donates either a "3" or that this is about mystery that is "off" or a show that might have mirrored themes... Apr 7, 2020 at 16:57

There is no underlying meaning to this - each case should be interpreted separately. Sometimes it can be a reference to 3, or to make the logo more symmetrical, or to make the word look more like a different language, or to show that something is not right, but in a different way, etc.
