As Mayans MC barrels toward its Season 2 finale, the titular motorcycle club is in a precarious position. After the Sons of Anarchy brokered a deal between the Mayans and a rival club they are on bad terms with, violence broke out, leaving Coco (Richard Cabral) blinded and Riz (Antonio Jaramillo) barely holding onto life.
Warning: The following contains spoilers for Episode 9 of Mayans MC Season 2, titled "Itzam-Ye." If you've yet to watch the episode and don't want to have major plot points spoiled, stop reading now.
As dire as circumstances seemed after the altercation, they only got worse in the episode that followed, "Itzam-Ye." To protect the deal made with the rival club, the Mayans voted against retaliation as it looked like Riz was going to survive the altercation. After the vote, though, he didn't. Riz is dead, and the vote is null and void. Bishop (Michael Irby) says that much himself when he proclaims it's time to go to war with the other club.
What he doesn't know, though, is how Riz died, and it's that secret that will likely be a significant plot point should Mayans MC continue into Season 3. Upset with the vote not to carry out vengeance against the rival club, Taza (Raoul Trujillo) cut off Riz's oxygen supply, killing him.

Anyone who's seen Sons of Anarchy knows that violence like this between fellow club members does not stand. Should Taza's misdeed come to light--and it obviously will at some point--it's not going to be pretty. That's something to think about in the future, though.
For now, war is coming in the Season 2 finale and the Mayans MC is going to be charging into enemy territory looking for blood. It'll be interesting to see what role, if any, the Sons of Anarchy play in the dispute. After all, they are the ones that first brokered the deal between the two clubs, and it's their relationship with Irish gunrunners that stands to be destroyed should this deal fall apart, which it's clearly going to.
Now, it's just a matter of who else has to die before this dispute is settled. Thankfully, you won't have to wait long to find out. The Season 2 finale of Mayans MC airs next Tuesday on FX.
