Mayans M.C. season 3 recap

SPOILERS ahead if you are not caught up with Mayans M.C. through season 3.

The ground shifted for the entire Mayans M.C. club with the events of season 3. After refusing a dangerous demand to double drug deliveries, the Santo Padre M.C. finds themselves at odds with other factions of the club. EZ believes they can make moves against the other Kings of the club and bring it all under one King, Bishop. Of course the other leaders don’t go down without a fight.

After a failed attempt to kill Canche, one of the other clubs’ leader, all of the Mayans clubs decide to band together and go after Santo Padre. This all leads to the closing moments of the finale, where a collective force is attacking the Santo Padre headquarters.

Elsewhere, Galindo is suspicious of Emily’s relationship with EZ, ultimately attempting to kill her and getting Alvarez and Nestor to kill EZ. Both attempts fail and after a pair of Adelita’s protege’s spill another Galindo murder conspiracy to Mexican authorities, he is forced to go on the run. Unsurprisingly, Emily chooses not to go with him.

The other big relationship development involved EZ and Gabby. After Gabby broke it off with EZ, afraid his way of life was too dangerous, he says that he is ready to leave it all behind and go north with her. However, EZ’s father Felipe warns Gabby that his son will only pull her down if she leaves with him. Gabby takes this bit of advice and leaves without EZ.
