After multiple episodes of me questioning why Adelita is the way she is, we finally got an answer on Mayans M.C. Season 1 Episode 7. It felt like the show went zero to a hundred real quick with Adelita. She went from rarely being featured to having an entire episode revolve around her.
That was a significant risk for Mayans M.C. to take. Adelita wasn't a character many M.C. fans have been able to get invested in. So at first the idea of her being the primary focus of the entire episode had me worried.
Luckily, Carla Baratta stepped up her game and delivered an incredible performance on "Cucaracha/K'uruch." Adelita was no longer just the cold-hearted leader of a rebellion. She was a very damaged woman who has pretty much spent her entire life thinking her father was betrayed by Felipe.
