Mayans MC Season 5 will take EZ to its limit, so more people will probably die


The final season of Mayans MC was a wild ride – and a scary one at times. EZ Reyes (JD Pardo), who was the outlaw biker for a heart of gold the previous three seasons, seems to have traded it in for a heart of stone. That’s not necessarily the case, however, and things will get worse to prove that point in Season 5.

Warning: The following contains spoilers for the Season 4 finale of Mayans MC. If you haven’t watched the episode yet, you should stop reading now.

EZ rose through the ranks last season, finding himself president of the Santo Padre chapter of the Mayans MC. In doing so, he essentially staged a coup against Alvarez (Emilio Rivera), ousting the group’s former leader from his position. He also lied to Bishop (Michael Irby) about the former president getting his job back, installing him as vice president instead. It’s an arrogant move, but a natural fit with the man EZ became in Season 4 – a ruthless, violent killer who would sacrifice everything, including the people he loved, for the club.

Now, moving forward, EZ as President is going to have a very different vibe to what we’ve seen on Mayans MC and Sons of Anarchy in the past. “We’ve never really seen a benevolent leader before,” showrunner Elgin James told GameSpot. “We haven’t seen someone operating out of love for their brothers. Marcus used that machine, but look how people would drop like flies and Sons of Anarchy, you know, people would drop.”

While he may operate out of love for his fellow Mayans, that hasn’t stopped EZ from becoming a cold-hearted killer. Again, as James explained, this is the story the show has been telling from the start. “We always knew he couldn’t escape his fate,” the showrunner said. “He couldn’t escape his fate, even though the path seemed very clear that he would go to Stanford, etc.”

James continued: “It goes back to that story from Season 3 when Felipe explains why he’s afraid EZ is talking to Gabby, despite Gabby not understanding it. [EZ] didn’t cry when their dog died, then we find out he couldn’t cry because he had to break the dog’s neck. Angel was a mess, like any of us would be when someone we love died.”

EZ doesn’t naturally operate on emotion like his brother Angel (Clayton Cardenas) or his mother. Instead, he’s the son of Felipe (Edward James Olmos), and that’s something Felipe has been aware of for a very long time. Yet while EZ may be destined for the kind of life his father always thought he would pursue, the new Mayan President can only push himself so far. “We’ll find out in Season 5 what his limit is for sure,” James teased.

Additionally, James was sure to note that EZ’s story by the end of the series, if it were to be renewed, would not be one continuous journey down a dark path. Instead, he said, there “may be pockets of darkness.”

If these pockets are anything like what we experienced in Season 4, they’ll drag EZ pretty far. The question is whether it will go as far as Sons of Anarchy, where most of the main characters were just plain unsympathetic by the end of the series. Maybe there’s still enough good in his life to keep EZ from going too far. After killing Gabby (Sulem Calderon), his friend from prison, or Canche (Jimmy Gonzales), perhaps he has already gone too far.

Mayans has yet to be renewed for a fifth season.
