Warning! The following contains spoilers for Mayans M.C. Season 2. Read at your own risk!
In its first season Mayans M.C. showed that while it is a spinoff to hit FX series Sons of Anarchy, it can stand on its own as a great series. Now that viewers are invested in the adventures of the new show, Kurt Sutter and crew seem to be easing up on their hard stance the two shows wouldn't have a ton of crossover.
That was especially evident towards the end of Season 1, when it was revealed the murderer of EZ's mother was none other than SAMCRO hitman Happy Lowman. The most recent episode showed EZ and Angel headed to an area outside of Charming in hopes of finding Happy and exacting some revenge. Their journey took them past a memorial, which pays homage to Sons of Anarchy's Jax Teller and JT's crash site.
EZ and Angel arrived at Happy's home outside of Charming, and had the hitman held up right as Mayans M.C. ended the episode. It's quite the ending considering we're only three episodes into Season 2 and the boys are just a stone's throw away from the primary setting of Sons of Anarchy and the SAMCRO headquarters. Regardless of how things shake out with Happy, it seems the series is in a perfect position to bring back a lot of characters from the original series.
Beyond the fact that he killed EZ and Angel's mother, Mayans M.C. viewers likely have another bone to pick with Happy. When Jax passed on leadership of SAMCRO his idea was that the motorcycle club could go legit, but as the spinoff has shown, the club is still into some shady business. As the club's Sergeant-at-Arms, Happy being a bigger part of the story may explain why SAMCRO went against Jax's wishes, provided he isn't dead and gone at the opening of the next episode.
Regardless of what happens, it definitely feels like EZ and Angel are going to have some trouble with SAMCRO regardless of how this situation shakes out with Happy. The Mayans are about to break their peace treaty, which means more conflict, and potentially more cameos by other former members of the Sons of Anarchy cast. Of course, cooler heads may prevail, and perhaps Happy can convince the Reyes brothers to spare his life with some additional context behind their mother's death?
The drama in Mayans M.C. Season 2 rolls on at FX Tuesdays at 10:00 p.m. ET. Stick with CinemaBlend for more exciting updates on the season as it progresses, and for all the latest news emerging as fall television is finally getting underway.
