Spoilers ahead for Season 2 Episode 7 'Tohil' of 'Mayans MC'
So far, season two has been brutal for Angel (Clayton Cardenas). Not a lot has worked in his favor. He discovered his father Felipe's (Edward James Olmos) true identity and his ladylove, a heavily pregnant Adelita (Carla Baratta), is being held by Potter (Ray McKinnon) in San Diego.
And his rescue attempt was spoiled by her plans to stay in captivity so that Potter leaves the rebels alone.
Angel had wanted to speak to his father for a while now. Not speak about this particular issue but really connect — the way he says EZ (JD Pardo) connects with him. This episode is when he has that chat.
Early in the morning, Angel visits Felipe and EZ. He leaves the two of them alone after Angel tells him he'll join him in a bit. The conversation begins with Angel revealing that he knows who Ignacio Cortina is — Felipe's real identity.
He says that EZ had told him a while ago but he could never ask him outright because it is "difficult" to talk to him.
Angel finally hears it from the horse's mouth. Felipe tells him about his connections with the Galindo Cartel. Back then, he says, most of the Mexican Federales were on Jose Galindo's payroll — it was easier to take the money than not take it.
He left Mexico with his wife Marisol after she got pregnant with Angel. Did Felipe worry about what kind of a father he will be at that time, Angel asks him. Felipe replies to him that he is going to be a father and that the girl is Luisa.
Felipe recognizes her as Luisa Espina, which is Adelita's real name. How does he know her, Angel asks. Felipe recounts that she had come home to kill him thinking he had something to do with the death of her father as she is Ignacio's police partner's daughter.
Felipe congratulates Angel for the good news and assures him that he will be a good father. He points out that it is clear that Angel loves her and he will surely love their baby too.
At the same time, he warns him that fatherhood is never over — that one never sheds off that worry — "that worry never ends", he tells him.
Angel also tells him that he is concerned that he might never get to see Adelita or their baby ever again because Potter had taken her captive and plans to keep it like that for a while.
Felipe knows Potter — rather bit too well. He tells Angel that Potter is a "slippery, arrogant f***k," but that he has his weaknesses like everyone does — "he makes mistakes as we all do". 'Mayans MC' airs on Tuesdays at 10 pm.
