- "I want you to shank me. I don't know how you came up with the idea but it fucking rocks, and I see what it's done for you. And mostly I see how Morales is. Him talking to you before like he's taking the high road, being powerful and generous. But behind his eyes he's running scared. I want to follow you."

Plot Summary[edit | edit source]
Season 5[edit | edit source]
Released from solitary, Alvarez finds trouble from Guerra that Velez is witness to. In order to call a truce, Alvarez allows Guerra to stab him in full view of the Latinos without retaliating. Guerra uses this as a chance to aim for Alvarez' heart but he misses, and after witnessing this, Jaime is impressed by Miguel's bravery. Velez then tells Miguel that he thinks he is the new wave in leading El Norte and will do whatever is necessary to become his lieutenant. Miguel sees an opportunity to kill Guerra here and asks Jaime to do the deed.
Velez approaches Guerra in the showers with a shank but Guerra manages to knock Jaime down, momentarily stunning him. He then proceeds to bash Jaime's head against the wall, killing him. Miguel, however, does not retaliate, as he is trying to remain out of solitary.
