"EZ GOT GAME!" one fan wrote. "Or at least a sexy smile."
Another added, "Yes yes yes I like this Girl for EZ!!"
Others were critical of Gaby, or were jealous that they couldn't help the main character move on from his past relationship themselves.
"I'm probably the only one who doesn't like EZ & Gabi, right?" a fan said.
Another countered, writing, "He gone lead her on tho, he's still Emily-obsessed."
EZ and Gaby first met in Episode 7, which saw Leticia return to ask the Mayans to help rescue Gaby's family as the Vatos Malditos were holding them hostage for more money after helping them cross the border into the U.S. The confrontation ended with the Mayans killing many of the mexican club's men.0comments
