‘Mayans M.C.’ Episode 3 “Buho /Muwan”
Tuesday’s episode of Mayans M.C. opened with a brief recap of last week’s episode which dealt with the kidnapping of Emily and Miguel’s son, the ransom video and the burned bodies of the vendors.
An owl watches the rebel children play soccer and Adelita worries about a shortage of food for everyone.
In the distance, Galindo’s men barrel toward rebel encampment. Adelita senses it and everyone hides. Galindo’s men find a pinata stuffed with an ornamented day of the dead skull with the name Cristobal written on it along with the flier with the phrase ‘Kill the devil raise Mexico’.
The Mayan rebel supporters tried warning Adelita but couldn’t due to a poor signal. Emily’s son is there and Ezekiel can’t help but insist on holding the baby. He tries to get Adelita to return the boy to his mother. Adelita snatches the baby away in response.
Alvarez and Losa are worried Galindo will not be able to fill drug shipment. But he promises that he has plenty of product. A meeting is set up between Chen’s men, the Myans and prison suppliers at San Buho Tribal Casino in Vegas. Meanwhile, Galindo’s men break into an apartment filled with young men who are weighing drugs and playing video games.
The men are threatened at gun point and loaded on a truck. Galindo himself performs the blood induction ceremony of one of the young men. He cuts the boy’s hand and smears blood first on his face then the young man’s. Felipe gets a visit from the family D.E.A agent who hands him a newspaper with an anniversary card with a phone number on it. Felipe notices someone is watching the shop.
Emily sees the new ransom video. She fears for her son and smashes her cell in frustration at not being able to do anything. Later, she convinces her mother-in-law to go to the square to look for her son. Adelita’s bleeding heart makes the mistake of taking in an orphan who isn’t who he claims to be.
Ezekiel has flashbacks of the one year anniversary he killed a dirty cop. The Myan boys gather at the clubhouse before leaving for the meeting at the casino. While there, Johnny has to be babysat due to his gambling addiction. Angel talks to Jimmy Chen about the six kilos of drugs he will receive.
While taking a break Ezekiel goes to the bar and is heckled by cops. The prison suppliers, Chen’s men, and the Mayans take place in a back room. When Jimmy asks for the malt liquor (a prearranged sign) Losa kills him. Turns out Jimmy was a snitch.
While exiting the casino the Myans ask Ezekiel to pick a fight with the cop from the bar. On tribal grounds whether off duty or on duty the cop status isn’t recognized. Ezekiel does as his asked. Inducing another flashback.
Back home, Felipe decides he’s had enough of the D.E.A agent spying on him. He lures him out of the vehicle holds him at gunpoint tells him he doesn’t need a babysitter.
Just when you think the chasm is widening in Miguel and Emily’s marriage the two are still holding on despite the lies they’ve told each other.
During the rebels dinner scene in the desert, it’s revealed the new kid is actually one of Miguel’s cartel member.
The episode ends with Alvarez and Losa talking about snitches in the M.C. Angel and Ezekiel are at home with Felipe. Felipe tears up the card. Ezekiel hides money. All act normal while eating, drinking and watching tv. The boys fall asleep while Felipe tucks his boys in reminiscing of when his boys were little.
Mayans M.C. airs Tuesdays at 10 PM EST on FX
