We are only halfway through the first season of Mayans MC and Kurt Sutter has already treated fans with a number of Sons of Anarchy cameos. On the most recent episode of Mayans, “Gato/Mis,” the franchise brought back one of the most iconic villains of Sons of Anarchy: Ray McKinnon’s Lincoln Potter.
Potter’s surprise cameo came during the final scene in the episode, which started with EZ shutting down the shop. Fans immediately recognized McKinnon’s voice when he told EZ, “Lovely night for a walk.”
Oh no.. Lincoln Potter's presence only mean one thing. Trouble for the MC.

The cameras then panned up to the mystery man’s face and confirmed that Potter is officially back. The scene wrapped with Potter picking up a random cat and saying, “Tell me my fine feline friend, you roam behind those rusty gates. What unspeakable truths lie twisted amongst the scrap?”
Potter, an assistant U.S. attorney, was the main villain in Season 4 of Sons of Anarchy. The eccentric character proved to be one of the smartest enemies Jax Teller (Charlie Hunnam) and company ever faced.

He was almost successful in taking out the True Irish Republican Army, SAMCRO and the Galindo Cartel in one swoop. The only thing that stopped him was an intervention by the CIA, who was working with the Sons to take down the cartel.
According to TV Guide, Potter was last seen during the Season 4 finale of SOA when he attempted to ruin Jacob Hale’s real estate scheme. We have no idea what Sutter and Elgin James have planned for Potter, but his involvement likely has something to do with the cartel.
I just watched last week's episode of #MayansFX and well…. WOOOOOAAAAAHHHH!! I'm so shook right now. I did not expect to see Lincoln Potter show up at the end. ARE YOU SERIOUS?? OMG!! I'm so excited to see what's about to happen next. Brand new episode tonight. I'M READY!!!!!

The only safe bet is that EZ and his crew better watch out now that Potter is clearly on to them.
Fans can catch more Sons of Anarchy cameos when new episodes of Mayans MC air Tuesday nights on FX.
