Mayans M.C. (2018–…): Season 1, Episode 5 - Uch/Opossum - full transcript

A new deal requires a dangerous favor in Santa Madre.

EZ: Previously on Mayans M.C...

- (gunshot)
- Shit.

WOMAN: They're using the
fence as a shooting gallery.

Alice Reed's?

And her concerned
citizen coalition.

OBISPO: Cops found
scripts near the body.

That changes it
from target practice

to drug running.

MAN: He was in Stockton
when I was inside.

Some sort of shot-caller.

If Alice is running scripts,

she's gonna need a buyer.

OBISPO: This is a
military-style execution.

It had to be Cole.

He the guy buying the scripts

you guys been picking off?

If we don't find a buyer
for this heroin soon,

Los Olvidados will lose ground.


MAN: It's a tunnel!

You need to help your son.

Convince him to
flip Emily Thomas.

Because if you don't,
everything your sons know

and love about you...
they're gonna find out is a lie.

You have to dismantle
the rebels' rhetoric.

Here's where you can do it.

- The kid that was MIA?
- Mm.

MAN: He came through.

GALINDO: Who's the nun?

That's one of the
local Dominicans.

MAN: (speaking
Spanish) Jane Esta muerta.

WOMAN: Please don't retaliate.


Emily. Em?

(dramatic chords)

(engine revving)


(engine roaring)

EZ: She okay?

Yeah. Look, she got
banged up pretty bad, right?

They're running tests.

Hey, hey! Stop, man.

We're making sure
there's no internal injuries.

What happened?

The Festival in Santa Madre.

Emily got caught
up in the chaos,

got fucking trampled.

Galindo brought her back here.

- I got to see her, man.
- (sighs) Dude.

El Jefe and his thugs, man.

They're camped out in there.

Please, Franky.

Shit. Come on.

Are you doing any better?

More X-rays.

FRANKY: Thank you, beautiful.

Yeah, you owe me, Rogan.

- Hi, Ezekiel.
- Hey, Rita.

- Appreciate this.
- No worries.

Just a couple of minutes.

You in pain?

Not much.

This was a risk.

I know.

I needed to make
sure you were okay.

I am.

It was my fault.

I pushed my way into the crowd.

I don't remember much.

It's all over the news.

They said...

the rebels murdered a nun.


Just doesn't make much sense.


Los Olvidados...

attacking a community
that they're trying to save.

They kidnapped my son.

- I know.
- They're fucking dangerous.


They did it to hurt Miguel.

The Galindo family has...

given a lot of money
to the Catholic church.

I didn't know.

I'm sorry.

(knocking on door)


Just let me know if you need me.

Or if you need anything.


Have you heard
anything about my son?


RITA: I'm sorry.

I've got to get her
down to orthopedics.

(phone buzzing)

Sup, E?

Shit went down in
Santa Madre last night.

Cartel and the L.O.


Okay, not on the cell.

Meet you in the yard.

We were gonna leave
her at the house, but...

seemed a little
bit over the top.

You think?

Who the fuck are you guys?

Lower the weapon.

And sit down.

So... (clears throat)

What do you know about me?

Angel Ignacio Reyes?

Besides your flair
for the dramatic,

not fucking much.

Got from Dennis you
were buying the scripts.

Where is Dennis?

With Mama.


what's left of her.

Why'd you waste them all?

They did the R.O.E.

Then they unraveled.
Became a liability.

Your club got something to move?

- Not the club.
- So it's your own deal.

Stop wasting my time.


Six keys.

97% pure guero.

30 per.

You got them here?

You ex-military?


Close enough.

We are...



I get that.

The H is in Santa Madre.

I can get it here in two hours.

You move your

We do.

We might be able

MAN: (clears throat)

Sorry to interrupt.

Thought you should know.

Just saw the prospect

walk out of an exam room.

A second later, a
nurse wheeled Emily out.


it's good to know my
wife is talking to someone.

- You're up early.
- Yeah.

Felipe: You want something?
- Nah, I'm good.

Felipe: Not sure I believe that.

Hear about that
thing in Santa Madre?

The church?

- The club part of that?
- No.

But Emily was there.

She got roughed up pretty bad.

Just went to see her.


She's in trouble, Pop.

I know it.

There's not much
you can do about that.

Her kid being taken...

The feds see it
as an opportunity.

Jimenez wants me to turn her.

Bring her in.

The deal I signed off on...

everything's upside down.

I never wanted any
of this to touch her.

But now...

it might be the only thing
that could keep her safe.

I don't know what to do.

You'd have to tell
her everything, son.

It's too big a risk.

She's been a part of
Galindo's world for many years.

I'm not saying she's
become like him, but...

she's not the same girl
you knew eight years ago.

it was Galindo who

GILLY: Rebels are
moving camp again.

I got some news that might
take the sting out of this.

Cole paid me a visit.


morning. At my house.

Brought Alice with him.

Or at least her head.

- Serious?
- Very serious.

ANGEL: You were right.

They're ex-military.
Marines, Special Forces.

Now they're pretty much

venture mercenaries.

They got contacts
all over the world.

Hook up buyers and
sellers, take a percentage.

That's what he did
with Alice's scripts.

Until the crew got sloppy.

We sure we want to be in
business with these guys?

We already are.

Look, Cole can

How many heads he need?

Just one.

Needs to smuggle a

An Afghani national.

No-fly list.


Who the hell is this guy?

He's one of the translators.

GILLY: Nuh-uh.

Dude, anybody eating curry

is on the no-fly list.

He's hiding out near
the Sonora border.

We pick him up, blindfold him,

and bring him home
through the underground.

That's a lot of trust.

We got no choice.


this could be a clusterfuck
for Los Olvidados.

Adelita needs that cash.

- I'll go with.
- No. You go back to the ranch.

Cover up that hole better.

See where that tunnel leads.

Got a few hours

GALINDO: I apologize

for the suddenness
of my request.

It must be important.

GALINDO: It is, for both of us.

And the person we
have in common.

The hospital.

I'm assuming you
still have some...

nostalgic feelings for Emily?

We have history.

I know you're aware.

I was worried about her.

Meant no disrespect.

There a reason we're
chatting in no-man's-land?

It's pretty desolate, isn't it?

But once the zoning
gets ironed out,

I'm gonna buy this lot
and all adjacent property.

Over 250 acres.

I have commitments from
three big agro companies,

both here and in Sonora

to base operations
out of Santo Padre.

And with that

comes housing,
retail, schools...

Gives this economy
a heartbeat again.

No, life takes you in so many

unexpected directions.

I'm guessing this
isn't about you and me

bonding over dead languages.

No, it's not.

Now, with everything
that's happened,

your presence only
complicates things more.

Well, because next time...

it won't be a
polite conversation.

- Mayor.
- Miguel.

Glad you could make it out.

What's going on, brother?

Thought you were
heading out this morning.

I am.

I talked to Devante
Cano this morning.

He gave me this.

Leader of Los Olvidados.

- It is a woman.
- She looks like a kid.

We'll keep our eyes open.

Yeah, for now, only

ANGEL: Who saw
you at the hospital?

EZ: I don't know.

ANGEL: It was

You got to stay away from Emily.

You can't stir shit

Not now.

I'm sorry. She just...

She triggers shit, man.

It's like I'm acting on it

before I even know
what the fuck I'm doing.

ANGEL: Chicks.

Look, I know...

keeping this kid thing
from her breaks you in half.

I get it.

But there was nothing
that you could have done

to stop what
happened at the church.

I could tell her the truth.

Yeah, tell her you're
in bed with the crew

that kidnapped her son.

That'll win her back.

We lock this shit down today,

Mexican fairytale,
The Forbidden Room?

La Camara Prohibida?


You want to share a fairytale?

I'm not the enemy, Emily.

I think sometimes you see me
as the man behind the curtain,

pulling strings.

I assure you

every decision I make,

every word of advice I give,

is in the best
interest of this family.

Your input about the rebels...

Was very smart.

And very effective.

But you have to understand

that if you want
to be a part of that,

you can't pick and
choose what you like.

You accept all of it

or you walk away from it.

Anything else

will undermine what
Miguel has to do.

I know my husband
can be ruthless.

I saw that side of him
before we were married.

But he has a brilliant mind

and a compassionate
heart, and...

Those traits have
always balanced out

the familial instincts.

Kept him even. He
knew who he was

in both worlds.

And that...

- has shifted?
- Yes.

Since Cristobal was taken...

That balance is gone.

Miguel swings
between volatile rage,

wanting revenge, and then...

He crashes.

Becomes inconsolable.

He may put on that rey
del cartel mask for his men,

but I see what's happening.

His markers have all been moved.

So right now it doesn't matter

if I accept or walk
away from anything.

My husband is lost, Devante.

And I don't know what to say.

Or how to help.

You're bold, Emily.

Truth is,

sometimes a little too
bold for my comfort.

But that's my problem.

Miguel loves that side of you.

And I understand why.

I know how...

brutally painful this
has been for you.

But you need to talk to him.

Tell him everything.

Secrets kill love.

Trust me on that.

John only had it half-right.

The truth doesn't set you free.

The ugly truth does.


Cannot be the man he needs to be
