Not long after Mayans MC antagonist Miguel Galindo (Danny Pino) had found himself locked up in border patrol custody a new opponent entered the ring- Lincoln Potter (Ray McKinnon), the Assistant U.S. Attorney last seen in the FX biker universe during season four of Sons of Anarchy.
McKinnon can be seen on HBO’s Deadwood as Reverend H.W. Smith as well as guest starring on numerous shows including Law & Order: Special Victims Unit and Fear the Walking Dead. He’s also been busy as the creator and writer of Sundance’s Rectify.
Potter ended episode six with a monologue as he held and stroked a cat. “Tell me, my wise feline friend,” Potter whispered in the cat’s ear. “You’ve roamed behind those rusty gates. What unspeakable truths lie twisted amongst the scrap, hm?”
For some backstory for those who haven’t yet seen Sons of Anarchy, Lincoln Potter first appeared in the fourth season of Sons of Anarchy, targeting Jax Teller (Charlie Hunnam) and the other members of the club. Potter was attempting to take down other criminal organizations with a RICO plan. Those on his target list included the Galindo Cartel, the very same one at the center of Mayans MC. Just as he was about to give up on his RICO case, two members of the Galindo Cartel revealed themselves as CIA agents, forcing Potter to shut down the operation. With the operation gone, Potter left the Sons of Anarchy series.
McKinnon most likely won’t be the last cameo we will see on Mayans MC. You can check out the series on the FX network on Tuesday’s at 10 PM.
