Do you remember the scene where we first encountered Happy Lowman (David Labrava), and realized just how dangerous Marcus Alvarez (Emilio Rivera) really was? It was way back in Season 1, in Hell Followed, which was the 9th episode of the season. We didn’t know Alvarez very well at that point; only that he was the rival Mayans MC President and that he and SAMCRO President Clay Morrow (Ron Perlman) didn’t exactly see eye to eye.
The scene we have for you today is what we’ve referred to as “Fortunate Son” for many, many years now. We are still in disbelief that Alvarez would contract to have his own son, his own flesh and blood, killed because it forced him to make a deal with SAMCRO. If only Alvarez knew then what the future would hold, maybe, just maybe it wouldn’t have had to go down this way.
Rewatch the tragic scene below, and tell us in the comments what else you remember from that episode way back in Season 1. What were your feelings toward Alvarez at that point? Had you had the feeling that we’d be seeing more of David Labrava as Happy Lowman as the seasons went on?
