Mayans MC wrapped its run earlier this week, and star JD Pardo has now spoken out in regards to the destiny of his character within the sequence finale.
Additionally starring Clayton Cardenas, Edward James Olmos, JR Bourne, Danny Pino, Carla Baratta, Michael Irby, Emilio Rivera, Sarah Bolger, Frankie Loyal, Joseph Lucero, Vincent Vargas, Gino Vento, Emily Tosta, and Vanessa Giselle, the FX sequence follows Ezekiel “EZ” Reyes (Pardo) as he leads the Mayans MC in a brutal struggle in opposition to the Sons of Anarchy in season 5 of the sequence.
[SPOILER] EZ joined the membership firstly of the sequence as an informant for the DEA, and that fact got here to mild within the finale. When accused of being a rat, his brother Angel is given a option to kill him or die with him. Ultimately, his brother stabs him first, adopted by the remainder of the Mayans.
Pardo mentioned the next about his character dying within the last episode, per EW:
“The entire objective of EZ this season was that he needed to die. EZ wouldn’t need to be killed by a Son. That wasn’t going to occur. Not by the cartel, not by any individual on the road who has a success out on him or no matter. That’s why it was the proper ending for EZ, as a result of it was like, ‘It must be my brother. I need it to be my brother.”
EZ dies believing that the Mayans are on high, however the Feds raid the clubhouse, seemingly killing everybody. We later be taught that Angel has made it out alive. Pardo commented on the sequence’ last jarring moments:
“It was attention-grabbing at first, once I learn that final scene of Potter’s males coming in and taking on after EZ’s dying. And there’s Bishop taking the seat [at the head of the table] once more, he’s like, ‘All proper, again to enterprise.’ At first, my pure response was like, ‘What? How may you?’ However as soon as I bought away from that, it was, ‘Oh, yeah. Life strikes on.’ Time doesn’t cease. It simply retains shifting. As a storyteller, I liked it. I liked how [the Mayans] assumed their pure place, Bishop takes the throne and so they’re like, ‘Okay, now what can we do?’ After which right here comes Potter — and the remaining is as much as the creativeness of the viewers.”
What do you think? Had been you pleased with how the sequence ended? Had been you hoping for extra seasons of the FX sequence, or was 5 sufficient?
