Mayans M.C. Season 4 Episode 5 saw the Mayans honoring their fallen brothers with Alvarez hoping for a new start after what went down during the Mayan Civil War. The fourth season hasn’t been great for the Mayans as Santo Padre saw itself going up against the other Mayan groups. In the end, Alvarez decided to step in to calm things down and bring them all together again.

So, Alvarez brought a new beginning to the group but some of the Mayans were not ready to accept this. Especially Bishop who was demoted and was later stripped of his position as Vice President. EZ holds the rank now and Alvarez believes he will lead the Mayans to a new dawn. The only thing is the fifth episode has a lot going on for EZ and we wonder how he will be able to handle the war that is coming on Mayans.

Mayans M.C. Season 4 Episode 5 Review

Mayans M.C. Season 4 Episode 5 was a peaceful episode that ended with a big bang. For the entirety of the episode, we saw all the characters taking the next big step in their lives. Relationships were formed and at the same time, new conflicts had started appearing. While Sons Of Anarchy are coming is something we already knew was going to happen, there are new tensions amidst this war now.

EZ on his side is taking care of more than one thing at this point of the show. Alvarez sees him as the future of the Mayans and EZ needs to prove that by maintaining peace between the other Mayan groups. EZ also has found a new love interest in the form of Sofia while he is also chasing JayJay’s reason for approaching him about his jail breakout.

Our Thoughts On Mayans M.C. Season 4 Episode 5

Although EZ tried maintaining peace, things haven’t worked out great so far. This saw Alvarez opting to cut out cancer from the gang. We wonder if it has anything to do with the “kill switch clause,” EZ pitched to him in the previous episode. Lastly, a new addition to EZ’s troubles is probably the PIs looking into Marlon’s death. Something he is not aware of at the moment. So at least for EZ, there is probably going to be more than one trouble to handle.

Coming to Angel now, while his arc is still a subplot in the show. There is development as Adelita has the baby now. Angel is already struggling with the thought of becoming a father believing his child with Adelita is dead. We wonder how he will react to this revelation. Lastly, Sons Of Anarchy is waging war on Mayans who are not on the same page. How will this war bring them together is something to look at in the coming episodes.
