Mayans M.C., the next chapter in the Sons of Anarchy saga, has just begun its first season on FX, and it has started to reveal the tangled web of past relationships and secrets. The story is rich, complex, and full of detail, and many viewers are already hooked. Some of them even have interesting theories that could come true in future episodes.
According to Fansided, one fan theory is all about military connections. We already know that Felipe Reyes (Edwards James Olmos) has a para-military past, but could it possibly go even further? The key to this military theory is figuring out exactly how Felipe became an anti-drug Federale, and considering his age, it could include some military experience in Vietnam.
And, if Felipe did serve in the Vietnam conflict, there could be an even bigger connection. It is possible that he has ties to Piney (William Lucking) and Sons of Anarchy character John Teller. Piney and Teller formed SOA because of economic hardship and difficulties adjusting to post-war life, as well as their craving for the camaraderie.
So, could it be possible that Felipe left Vietnam as a jaded veteran, worked as a Federale, and then decided to leave his life of crime behind him? After all, this is the same path JT took before he died.
Another fan theory is that Coco is baby Cristobal. All you need to do is line up the timelines for this theory to make sense. Baby Cristobal is supposed to be older than Miguel, and Richard Cabral is ten years younger than Danny Pino. And, Miguel appears to have had a privileged upbringing.
The Sonora Cartel took baby Cristobal to blackmail Miguel’s father, and the question is where that baby ended up. A possible outcome is that they gave the baby to someone under cartel control. So, could Coco’s mom be a forced caretaker instead of his biological mother?
A third theory is that EZ (JD Pardo) has a child. Emily (Sarah Bolger) is a hard character to figure out. She goes from being a damsel in distress to putting together a plan that results in an innocent nun getting murdered. So, she ended up having some hate-sex, and when she got pregnant, she told EZ that she had an abortion.
But, who knows if that is true? There is a strong possibility that Emily is lying to EZ and playing him. To save her family, she is capable of absolutely anything — and that includes lying about getting an abortion.
New episodes of Mayans M.C. air Tuesday nights on FX.
