She tells Emily that the Galindo’s got what they wanted and to stay away from her family, leaving Emily in confusion. Emily meets E.Z. and hands over the info on Potter having a child with a witness.

The Darkness Calls
Later, E.Z. and Angel meet Felipe. He tells them about Dita’s death wish. He says he will handle it and forces the boys to go back to the clubhouse.

After leaving, Dita sends the Galindo bodyguards into the pharmacy. She steals the car and sends a message to E.Z. and Angel to meet her. Felipe cannot kill Dita. E.Z. decides to be the one to avenge his mother’s murder. Angel leads a heartbroken Felipe to his truck as Dita prays a Hail Mary.
