Tonight’s episode of Mayans M.C. introduced Dita Galindo (Ada Maris), and she gives Sons of Anarchy’s Gemma Teller some competition for the title of Worst Grandma Ever.

Before the series premiered, FX described Dita Galindo as the “beautiful matriarch of the Galindo Cartel Legacy, her grace defies the violent life she has been privy to for decades.” Now that we’ve met her in the latest episode of Mayans M.C., episode 2, titled “Escorpion/Dzec,” we know she really lives up to her character description!

Dita is very graceful and maintains her composure no matter how tough the situation is, and in episode 2 things really did get rough! Her grandson has been kidnapped and could possibly be killed. As she tried to keep her daughter-in-law, Emily (Sarah Bolger) comfortable and calm, Dita was planning a chat with her son Miguel (Danny Pino) about doing absolutely nothing to get the baby boy back.

How despicable! Dita cares so much about the legacy of the Galindo Cartel and is so full of pride, she rather her only grandson die than bend the knee. It’s shocking that Dita would suggest this, but it’s what she did with her own son, so there’s probably nothing this woman wouldn’t do for her business. But is she worse than Sons of Anarchy‘s Gemma Teller (Katey Sagal)?

More from FX

If you ask me — Yes, by far!

Don’t get me wrong, Gemma’s pretty awful. She killed Tara (Maggie Siff), the mother of her grandkids, and very violently, too. Gemma did this all because of a misunderstanding, she thought Tara had betrayed her son. In reality, Tara didn’t. Gemma was misinformed and jumped to conclusions, but that’s the point.

Gemma would kill, literally anyone, apparently, if they hurt her son of grandchildren. There’s nothing she wouldn’t do for Jax (Charlie Hunnam) and his two boys.

Unlike Dita, Gemma would not keep her composure. She’d jump into action and done whatever it took to get her grandson back home safe. Gemma has committed other crimes, though, so whether the fact that she puts family first makes her better than Dita is up to you! But that’s enough for me.

Next. Remembering Gemma’s best (and worst) moments in SOA. dark

We’ve only just met Dita Galindo, and if this is what she does in the first episode she’s featured in, it’s not looking good! At least Gemma had good moments before murdering Tara.

Mayans M.C. airs new episodes Tuesday nights only on FX. Who do you believe the worst grandma in the SOA universe is?
