The trouble is never far away in the world of Mayans MC and in this episode the attention is placed upon the meaning of fatherhood and just how much of a responsibility a task like that can be.
In an effort to continue to diversify the series EZ takes a step backwards in ‘Gato/Mis’ and becomes a foil for the actions of Coco (Richard Cabral) who’s long lost wayward daughter Leti ends up causing plenty of trouble leaving EZ to clean up the mess. While I can’t go into the action without risking the threat of spoilers I will say that things get particularly crazy and Coco’s hell raising teenage daughter is behind all of it.
And while Coco is learning to adapt to the rules of fatherhood, Felipe Reyes also shows his hand and along with the dark secrets of his past that he has desperately tried to hide. When you finally learn who he was in a past life it’s a particularly shocking revelation. Then there’s the man who he opens up to, his nephew and EZ’s cousin DEA Agent Kevin Jimenez (Maurice Compte) who has helped EZ acquire his deal with the DEA in exchange for immunity which has lead him to act as an informant on the actions of the Galindo Cartel…..a decision which places him in extreme danger.
If you think things are twisted then you’re definitely not alone, and with the continued twists and shocks that come with each new episode I really don’t know how EZ or his family are ever going to be able to dig themselves out from under the chaos that is slowly encircling them.
‘Gato/Mis’ really places its attention on the idea of fatherhood in this outlaw world and that regardless of whether these men be good or bad each of them care for their children completely and will do whatever is necessary to protect them. This theme of fatherhood concludes with a twist of fate for Miguel Galindo (Danny Pino) who agrees to a handover of his son and finds himself playing right into Adelita (Carla Baratta) and the rebels hands.
Things can only get more explosive from here and following the conclusion of Episode Six I’m extremely amped for Episode Seven.
