Mo Episode 8 Ending “Vamos”
In the last scene, we see the wild animals chasing Mo. His life had never been easy, and even when things were going well, he would mess them up in some way. When he ends up in Mexico, it’s the worst thing that could happen to him. Nick was with him, but the last time he saw Nick, he was happy and on his return home. He thought they could help him, but now they want to kill him. Mo likes to get himself into sticky situations, but he’s good at getting out of them, and you can expect him to do the same in Mexico. Before the coyotes discover him, he is on the phone with Maria, and he goes on to tell her to call her cousins. Since she is from Mexico, her family or friends there might help Mo the next time we see him. If he can run faster than the coyotes, that is. He might be able to stay alive in Mexico because of Maria, but that won’t help him get back home. Since there’s no legal way for Mo to do it, whatever he has to do to get to the United States will just cause him more trouble. He has already met up with gangs and cartels more than enough times. But he doesn’t seem to be finished with it yet. He might even get more engaged with them now, even if he doesn’t want to.
