The following contains spoilers for the Season 3 finale of Mayans MC, “Chapter the Last, Nothing More to Write.” If you haven’t watched this episode yet, turn away now because we’re going to break it all down.
So much of Season 3 has seen EZ (JD Pardo) striving to be a good man and even, at times, leaving the MC life behind for a peaceful existence with Gaby (Sulem Calderon). Ultimately, though, Felipe (Edward James Olmos) advises Gaby to leave town without him, realizing that EZ is already lost to the violent lifestyle–something EZ himself finally accepts by the episode’s end. As it turns out, though, that journey almost didn’t happen.
