Mayans M.C. (2018–…): Season 2, Episode 5 - Xquic - full transcript

An unexpected storm kicks up dust south of the border, as old family secrets bleed into familial affairs.

Previously on Mayans M.C...

There's a reason your life is
on the other side of the fence.

Every time you
cross that border,

your wife loses a
little piece of you.

I never did a paternity
or DNA test on Miguel.

I knew he was your son.

Does anyone else know?

No, of course not,

and no one ever will.

I don't get it. What
the fuck's this mean?

Isabel Varela,
Ignacio Cortina...

Those are their real names.

I saw pictures of Pop
with Jose Galindo.

Señorita Palomo could create

a most unsettling
wave of democracy.

We think Adelita might have
used her prenatal downtime

to create new relationships.

I know you have your reasons

for keeping things
on the down-low,

but I'd at least like to tell
my family I'm having a kid.

Let's wait until she's
born and we're all safe.

No, Adelita!

Queen bee's inside, gentlemen.

Come on.

♪ ♪

♪ ♪

This is what we
have. Looks good.




Mr. Potter, Agent Linares.


Oh, yesterday's roundup.

You put her in a
fucking dog cage?

We didn't have a cell.

Jesus Christ.

She's pregnant, troglodyte.

Agent Collins, get her vitals.

Make sure the baby's okay.

I'm fine.

So is she.


Don't you find it odd

that our Ivy League
prince took it upon himself

to track and snare the
deadly rebel queen?

A little out of character,
I guess, but we got her.

Cleared the board.


We declawed the rebels and,
uh, handed Galindo the reins

to Sonora and eastern Baja.

And we control those reins.

Yet with all that control...

the rabble still rises.

Strikes, riots, civil

And with the inevitable tariffs,

I fear the left
will use the chaos

as a fast lane to
el Palacio Nacional.

Mr. Potter, we found a clearing

less than a klick away.

We can easily land a bird there.

Flying a Black Hawk in
the middle of a goat village

might undermine our need
for diplomatic discretion.

We will transport our
asset tomorrow morning.

We'll need a few
strategic scenarios.

"A few"?

I want options, Major.

We must assume
behind every local face

hides a potential spy.

And if we're being
watched or deceived...

we'll have to decide

which shell to
put the pea under.

Well, I have six men here,
another four on the way.

Is that enough for
your shell game?

We'll make sure you have enough.

Excuse us.

I'll need you to
reach out to Galindo.

I might need his help.

You don't care
about me or my child.

Answer the question.

We're taking you to a
federal holding facility.

We'll keep you
healthy and comfortable

until the birth.


we'll want to know all
the things you know.

We'll torture you.

But that probably won't work,

so we'll use your
child as leverage.

I, uh, have a theory...

A blasphemous one.

I don't believe King Solomon
was a wise man at all.

I think he was a
malevolent sadist

who just got lucky.

A mother's love
knows no boundaries...

Nor can it hide the
truth that holds it.

♪ ♪

When did you get back?

Just now.


Miguel, what happened?

We were, um...

taking Adelita to meet
one of her benefactors.

Potter's mercs tracked us.

We were trapped, a
village outside of Tecate.


When we realized
they were there,

Adelita grabbed a
gun and ran from us.

Made it look like
Alvarez and I were there

to hunt her down.

We told the mercs we
got a tip from the locals.

She sacrificed herself,

and I just let her do it.

She did it to protect
everything, baby.

- It was her choice.
- I know.

I just feel so fucking...

powerless and...

We've seen what Potter can do.

His head games and...

emotional torture.

He... he's gonna fuck her up.

The baby...

I should have helped her.

How did I let this happen?

The way you talk about her...

It's obvious there's
a connection.

Is it more than that?

Do you love her?

Wait, what?

No, no, no.

God, no.

Em, no, it... it's nothing
like that, all right?

There... there is no...

Look, I went from
hating Adelita...


understanding her and, um...


respecting her,

I mean, the things she did.

And for these past
few months, uh...

watching her
singular devotion...

I mean, this selfless
need to help her people...

I mean, it's potent and...

It's beautiful.

I grew envious.

I wanted some of that.


You're right.


I've gone out of my
way to be around Adelita,

but it wasn't about her.

It was about me.

You know, the things
you did in the other world...

The conflict that
spun inside of you...

I was always your
touchstone, Miguel.

You know, our family,
our lives, your business...

Everything on this
side of the border

was honest and real.

That's the thing you
wanted to be around.

That's what you
thought was beautiful.

Oh, I still do, mi amor.

Look, I know I've
been distracted.

It's all...

Look, everything's
changed, all right?

This play with Potter, it...

It has so many moving pieces.

- I can barely know what...
- You know what?

You can lie to me, Miguel,
but don't lie to yourself.

Look, up till now, the DOJ
con has been nothing but a win.

Your drug trade
has nearly doubled.

More power, more territories.

I have watched you
ride that success.

You haven't
struggled with it, baby.

You've embraced it.

♪ ♪

I'm sorry.

I guess I just didn't see it.


didn't realize I
was that far away.

I know.

I'm sorry to interrupt, but...

Hey. Please,
Marcus, not right now.

It's Potter.

Take it.

Let me know if
you need anything.



♪ ♪


What's up?

- Swole Boys.
- Yeah, uh...

We ran into them on
the way up to Stockton.

So did we... on the way back.

A fist-fuck of a snafu.

Riz went down.

Sorry, I never thought
they would be...

That's always my worry, Angel.

You never think
beyond the action.

The shit with Medina
kind of pulled focus, man.

It ain't his fault.

Hey, shut the fuck up, prospect.

You're right, Prez.

I fucked up, man.

You know, he ain't
know any better, but I did.

Let the table decide.
I'll take the hit.

Stand down till then.

Bishop! Alvarez on the burner.

What the fuck are you doing?

You want your jaw cracked again?

Sorry, I just...

- Prez hit you up?
- Yeah.

Who knew the Swole Boys
would be stupid enough

to go after the fucking M.C.?

We did.

Fuck, mercs got Adelita.

Gotta meet Alvarez and
Galindo at the warehouse.

Why would Potter ask you
to help transport Adelita?

Hobart's got an army.

I don't think he wants my help.

I think it's a test.

See if we can be trusted.

He's setting you up?

Look, if I'm Potter,

I'm starting to see
too many anomalies.

All the damage
he's done to the LO,

and yet rebellion
is on the rise.

Right, strikes, protests...

Killing the mercs
to save Mini...

he read that as a rebel reboot.

And yesterday's close call.

Maybe you being there
was a little convenient.


Look, we've played this
smart right under Potter's nose,

but now he's not
quite sure what.

He just knows there's
something he doesn't know.

Friends in high places.

Señorita Palomo.

- You know Mr. Alvarez.
- Yeah.

And our associates
from Santo Padre.

I'm Bishop. This is Taza, Hank.

- Bishop.
- Pleasure.



Mostly Apache, Comanche,
little Sephardic Jew.

That's a long
lineage of holocausts.

Amen, sister.

At our table, we
call you the saint.

I'm not the saint, gentlemen.

Adelita is.

Let's find a way
to bring her home.

Sorry for losing my shit.

Is it Adelita?

I know you had a thing for her,

but you really haven't
said much about it

since she locked down Galindo.

I haven't said much
of anything to you

since we locked down Galindo.

Good point.

You can now.

Say shit.

I'm here.

The man I thought
was Felipe Reyes

is waiting for a beer.

What should we say to him?

Nothing yet.

We need to get all
the intel from Happy.

Then we'll figure it out.


Can't wait.

Thank you.

You all right, mi'jo?

I'm okay, Pop.

I'm sorry...

for shutting you out.

I'm the one who's sorry, son.

I should have done more for you.

Paid attention.

I was so pissed off, Pop,

it wouldn't have mattered.

Everything you and
Mom tried to do...

it was just something
for me to hate.


I guess we're all
a little fucked up.

Sorry to bother you.

Taza called.

Bishops wants everyone at
the dress warehouse ASAP.

He say why?

I'm very rarely
privy to the "why."

I'm quite content to
be part of the "what."

Thanks, Chucky.

I'm very relieved to
see your familial ties

are once again tightly bound.

I hope to know that someday.

He's an odd little guy.

Ring the buzzer
when you're finished.

- Thank you.
- Mm-hmm.

♪ ♪

Right here.

It's confirmed.

Our Mexicali contact
in the Policía Estatal,

his whole unit's been
put on standby... 48 hours.

That only happens
for natural disasters

or diplomatic security.

And our girl at the U.S. border

confirms the U.S. side.

Her unit's been pulled off
patrol units for two days.

Some shit about
"assessing border integrity."

Potter cleared both
sides of the wall

to open up a fucking hole.

No camera, guards, or records.

Her unit covers the Alamo River

from the Verde Drain,

which means the feds
should cut a hole somewhere...

in here.

If Alvarez meets
the bullshit transport

at this exit... heading west,

safe house gotta be
somewhere between TJ highway

and the hole in the wall.

It's mostly desert, barren land.

Only a few small towns.

Palomo came through.

We had her use some
sway to check local records,

realty databases, see if any
outside parties recently bought

or rented with cash,
paid in advance.

The last month, there
was three cash buys

from outside the state.

30 acres of farmland
along this canal right here,

a warehouse near
the quarry right here,

and a two-story unit
in the hillside village.

It's not the farmland.

I can have my people
there in less than an hour.

Check the quarry, the village,
find out where they have her.

We need to move
while it's still dark.

We'll put our piece
together and head out.

We'll coordinate
once we're in place.

I'll do whatever I
can on this side.

When this goes down,
you need to be seen in town.

Just another day.

I know.

There are cars waiting
outside the tunnel...

Clean, with plates.

Everything else you
need should be here.

If it's not, I'll get it.

When we get the
intel from Pablo,

we'll set up observation points.

No, fuck that. I

happened in Berdoo,

you take a step back.

No, man, that can't happen.

Not now.

Yeah, it can, and
it just fucking did.

Man, fuck you.
