Tuesday's episode of Mayans M.C. came to a stunning conclusion and left viewers with a major cliffhanger. A prominent character was attacked by a mysterious foe and took a bullet to the torso while fighting to save himself and his companion. The episode came to an end as he looked at his blood-covered hands, and prompted a wide variety of comments from social media users. Warning: Spoilers ahead for Season 3, Episode 5 of Mayans M.C.
The violent incident, which fans can revisit by watching the episode on Hulu, occurred when Ezekiel "EZ" Reyes (JD Pardo) offered to drive Gaby (Sulem Calderon) home from his father's butcher shop. They stopped for a late-night meal in a touching moment, but a man walked up behind EZ and pointed a gun at his head. The fan-favorite biker fought off his attacker, but he ended the night covered in blood and fighting for his life. This sight sparked concern among viewers of the show, and they responded by reaching out directly to Pardo on social media. Others proclaimed that the MC would exact violent revenge on EZ's attackers.
"I'll never be able to eat a funnel cake again," one Mayans fan tweeted on Tuesday night. There were several people responding to the violent attack and the cliffhanger by discussing the choice of food that EZ purchased during the ill-fated date.prevnext
