Hey guys, this is my first time posting here. I wrote the article on all 10 Mayans MC episode titles and their meanings which a lot of people seemed to like. I saw u/thickyjackjr
's post on his attempt to break down the SOA/Mayans timeline, and I thought I'd share all the info I have and build off what he started. I've seen the shows countless times and I always take notes so I had a lot of this info laying around. Sorry for the long read... and wicked spoilers if you haven't seen Mayans yet!
1940: John Teller is born on May 5th.
1951: Felipe Reyes (Born as Ignacio Cortina) is born in February. (Age 67?)
Source: Mayans MC S1EP4 “Murciélago/Zotz”1954: John Teller (14yo) is attending Wilson High School.
[1955-1975: Vietnam War].
1957?: Gemma Madoc is born.
1967: Sons of Anarchy Motorcycle Club is founded by nine men known thereafter as the First 9.

Otto 'Lil' Killer' Moran (not to be confused with Big Otto Delaney - played by Kurt Sutter) 8th member
Clarence 'Clay' Morrow, veteran, 9th to join but not a ‘founding member’, douchebag

1973: Gemma Madoc leaves Charming at age 16 (SOA's Wikipedia says she leaves in 1975 but on S02E04 it is said she leaves when she's 16yo).
1975?: Gemma (18) meets John Teller and two months later she's pregnant [In S05E09 Gemma tells Nero she met JT and got pregnant at 18. So there has to be a mistake either in Gemma's birthday or in Jackson's or the anecdote itself is an error. There's a picture where she's getting married being pregnant, so she cannot be pregnant from '75 to '78].
1978?: Gemma (21) marries John Teller (38) being pregnant.
1978: Jackson Teller and Opie Winston are born.
1980: Tara Knowles is born on June 21st.
1983: Gemma Teller returns to Charming with his firstborn son, Jackson (5yo), and the MC. SAMCRO settles in Charming.
1984: Ignacio Cortina decides to change his life when he knows his wife is pregnant. // Thomas Teller is born to John and Gemma Teller on January 8th.
1985: Ignacio Cortina changes his identity to Felipe Reyes.
1984 or 1985: Angel Reyes is born. (Felipe was 34 at the time?) Angel Reyes is 33/34 now?
1989/1990?: Ezekiel Reyes is born. EZ is 27/28 now?
1988: Trinity Ashby is born in Belfast to John Teller (48) and Maureen Ashby.
1989: Tara Knowles' mother dies when she's 9yo.
1990: Thomas Teller dies on April 4th at age 6. Jackson Teller is 12yo. John Teller is in Belfast.
1992: Mayan War. (Conflict between the Sons and the Mayans. It lasts 2 years around 1992, ending before John Teller's death). This year is also known as 'The Bloody 92'.
1993: John Teller finishes his manuscript on March 15th, and dies on November 13th in hospital two days after a motorcycle accident in Highway 580 (11/11/1993) [At the time he'd be 53yo, but in S02E04 there's what has to be a mistake in the police's accident report which says he was 35yo when he died]. (Jax Teller is 15yo).
1996: Tara Knowles (16yo) is arrested at least three times together with Jackson Teller (18yo) for minor offenses.
1997: Tara Knowles leaves Charming to live in San Diego with her aunt.
2003-2008: Opie Winston serves his time in jail at Chino (5 years).
September 2008: SOA 1st Season (Jax Teller is 30yo). “Pilot” Abel Teller is born. (A lot of time revolves around his age, I’ve based things off his possible birth month of August/September 2008, I actually used Sept for my math)
August 25, 2008: SOA 1st Season (Jax Teller is 30yo). “Pilot” Abel Teller is born.
Source: SOAs7EP13 “Papa’s Goods’, Jax is holding Abel’s birth Certificate. *Thanks to u/Jmfa1
Reason: S1EP3 “Fun Town”. Many county fairs/carnivals take place around these months. Other reasons for 2008 definitely being the start year are technological advances and products used by characters (like Tara’s cell phone):
First iphone released in the United States on June 29, 2007.
June 9, 2008, Apple announced its successor, the iPhone 3G .
Happy is part of Tacoma's charter until S1EP10 "Better Half” (S1EP10 to S3EP6 “Push” he is Nomad)
Really late 2008/Really early 2009: SOA 2nd Season.
Half-sack is killed (prospect to Chibs). Happy is still Nomad. Happy spent a lot of time in Charming during S2, only absent from 4/13 episodes. Small window for a Nomad kill.
We don't know exactly how many days passed between EZ finding the body of his mom and locating the car in the bar parking lot beginning the chase scene. (Kurt’s media interviews where he says Happy was Nomad can be disproved by his own shows. Some intern fucked up their homework. Luckily, Mayans MC does not explicitly state that Happy was Nomad, only Sutter’s interviews. There is time for this to be noticed and not make it into the Mayans MC S2 scripts which would actually mess with the mythology)
2008/2009: Possibly when the Santo Padre charter is born. Marcus Alvarez sends his cousin Obispo Bishop Losa (likely a full patch Mayan from another chapter) and childhood friend Che Taza Romero to set up and run the Border Charter. Alvarez enters a business deal with Jose Galindo around this time?
May 2009: SOA 3rd Season.
April 2009: SOA 3rd Season.
S3EP1 “SO” Jax teller says “my 8-month-old son was kidnapped” meaning S1EP1 to S3EP1 is 8m long. Year changed from 2008 to 2009.
**If Abel was born around September 2008** Late (September) 2008 + 8 months= Early (May) 2009
Abel was born August 25, 2008
August 25th, 2008 + 8 months= April 25th, 2009. This season takes place over a few days to a couple weeks, putting the S3 finale likely in May, 2009.
Season 3 takes place in the first half of 2009.
Happy becomes Redwood S3EP6 “Push”. Tara is 6 weeks pregnant (1 ½ months. I will round this to two months for easy math later), SAMCRO is looking for Cameron Hayes and Abel Teller. S3 Finale, Happy is arrested along with Clay, Jax, Bobby, Tig and Juice for a 14m sentence.
(In between 3 and 4, 14 months pass as the show does a time jump to the clubs release from prison.)
2010 before summer: EZ is 19/20yrs old? College age. Emily is 17/18?
EZ’s first flashback visiting Emily at her high school, he says he had a break before finals, indicating the end of the semester. He could be at the end of his 1st year or 2nd about before the summer break.
July 2010: SOA Season 4.
S4EP1 “Out” Happy and other SAMCRO members are released after 14m in Stockton, year changes from 2009 to 2010. Thomas Teller is born during that time.
**Take the approximate month/year of S3 Finale and add 14 months**
Early (May) 2009 + 14 months= Mid (July) 2010
May 2009 + 14 months= July 2010 is more likely thanks to Abels birthday.
Clay, Jax, Happy, Bobby, Tig and Juice are released from jail just over mid-2010. (July 7th month of the year)
More proof that SOA Season 4 was in 2010 comes from a scene in Mayans MC from Bishop and Alvarez at the meeting in the casino with the Chinese.
“Look. We're not privy to everything that's happening with the rebels, but this kind of shit is the cost of doing business for the cartel. It always has been. 2010, we saw the same thing happen to Galindo's old man. Lobos Sonora made a play for the border and shipments were being clipped every week. Our business didn't change.”
Source: Mayans MC S1EP 3, “Buho/Muwan”. Lobos Sonora subplot occurred in S4 of SOA when Kozik died.
S4EP3 “Dorylus” the mention of an Ipad, which was not released until 2010. This fits the timeline.
*Season 4 does get wonky because Tara drives a Ford Edge with a 2012 sticker on the LP, but the year is not 2012 for them. Not enough time has passed. Total countable elapsed time in-show days are less than 30 for S4.
Jax’s sons ages this season:
Abel should be 22 months old, about to turn 2 years old. Rounding Tara’s total pregnancy time up by two weeks (stated above) for easy math, at the time of Thomas’s birth, Abel is no more than 15 months older than his little brother.
If Abel was 8m old when Tara was apx. 2m pregnant, with 7m remaining of her pregnancy, Tara gave birth to Thomas at the end of 2009.
Abel 8 months old=
Early (May) 2009 + 7 months = Dec. 2009
Thomas is born. If the two boys are 15m apart, Thomas would be 7m old and Abel is 22m (about to turn 2yrs) when SAMCRO is released.
UPDATE: Abel 8 months old= April 2009 + 7 months = November 2009 Thomas is born.
2010 Summer: 1st Annual Santo Padre Mayans M.C. Rally.
EZ finds his mother’s body (Happy is the presumed killer at this time, all EZ’s flashbacks are 8 years ago). Coco had just returned from his tour of duty in Iraq. Angel and Coco get a gun for EZ. EZ shoots a cop in the chase with Happy. EZ is facing 20 years for murder. Serves time in Stockton. Emily has the abortion.
If we knew what month in 2008 Abel was born, it could help narrow this timeline down exactly.
But given the SOA timeline as it stands 2010 is definitely when EZ was in Stockton.
Meaning that Gemma being seen during EZ’s does line up and actually works. She would be visiting near the end of their sentence, maybe even finding out when they will get released.
S4EP5 “Brick” Gemma also meets with Otto, so she could be seeing him in that scene during EZ and Emily’s argument which seems the most logical. If that is the case, then SAMCRO would already have been released which would mean EZ and Happy were NEVER in Stockton at the same time.
If SAMCRO were in Stockton for 14m, then EZ and the SONS were only in the same prison at the same time for a couple of months minimum. Some people think that EZ being in Stockton at the same time as Happy is a big deal, but given the timeline and the size of Stockton, them seeing each other wouldn’t be likely...especially since if EZ did see Happy in Stockton there would be no “big reveal” in the Mayans MC S1 finale. EZ had to have never had contact with Happy at all.
UPDATE: SAMCRO were likely arrested in May, 2009 given Abel’s age at the time and the time that passes from S3EP to S3 finale when they are arrested. SAMCRO’s 14th month sentence ends in July, 2010 which would have been around when EZ was arrested. Finale thoughts: EZ was never in Stockton with SAMCRO at the same time. Gemma was visiting Otto.
Here is where shit gets weird in the SOA timeline.... Thanks, Abel!
Still 2010?: SOA 5th Season. Opie Winston dies at age 34.S5 EP1 “Sovereign” picks up a few days to a couple weeks after S4. Clay is out of the hospital last seen in care in s4 finale “To Be Act 2”. Frankie Diamonds, Gogo and Greg the Peg voted into SAMCRO. Jax and Tara get married.
S5EP11 “To Thine Own Self” Romeo Parada signs off on SAMCRO leaving the cartel deal. Mayans take over muling. Jax begins attempts to leave guns.
Late 2010/2011: Angel, Gilly and Coco begin prospecting terms. EZ is in jail. Emily is in law school.
June 2013 somehow?: SOA 6th Season. S6 picks up days after S5 finale.
Jax still trying to get out of guns but can't unless they have a replacement pipeline. Les Packer and SAMDINO vote down picking up the Irish slack, “Wolfsangel”. After the clubhouse is blown up, Galen and Roarke allow SAMCRO to leave guns if they get all their buyers onboard with Clay handling distribution “Salvage”. Tara died (finale) in June around what would have been her next birthday, months before Abel would have started school.
June/July 2013?: SOA 7th Season. S7 picks up days after S6 finale. With Tara’s birthday being June 21, 1980, and her death also occurring in June (around her birthday although the show never mentions her birthday occurring) this season picks up around this event. Source: Tara’s gravestone.
S7 Premiere could start late June/early July. Abel starts school in this season (cause he’s 5 now), which typically begins in mid/late August depending on school districts.
Wendy checks out of rehab after 9 days worried about Abel. Jax is in county prison and released after no evidence ties him to Tara’s murder. Tara’s funeral was 2 days ago from his release.
Jax Teller dies at age 35. Jax born in ‘78 and is 30 by S1 soa= 2008. S7EP4 “Poor Little Lambs” Abel is approx 5 given Jax saying so via dialogue in S7 SOA as he has started school. Abel would be in a pre-k/kindergarten program depending on when his birthday falls in the school system. CA school districts “child must turn 5yrs old before or on September 1st for the kindergarten school year. So if Abel was about to turn 5 AFTER Sept 1st, Jax could have rounded up putting Abel in Pre-k as he just missed the cut-off date and 5-year-olds can be in pre-k cause they'd be the oldest in the class after Sept 1st. Source: Am parent.
S7EP9 - “What A Piece Of Work Is Man” Transcript:
Jax: Why don't you all head up to the cabin? Bring the boys.
Wendy: Well, what about school?
Jax: Not today.
Wendy: Abel's struggling, Jax. That thing with the lunchbox...
Gemma: He'll be fine.
Wendy: It's just that the more time he misses, the more he falls behind. And I think that's adding to his frustration.
Jax: He's five years old. He shouldn't be frustrated. I want him with me today.
Wendy: Okay. (o.0)
S1EP1 to S4EP1 is 2 years long (Abel is 22m old turning 2)
From S4EP1 “Out” Abel is just shy of 2yrs old and then jumps to 5yrs in 3 seasons?
One of Sutter’s things that happened with the show was the recasting with Evan and Ryder (the twins that played Abel). Abel’s age was moved up to match the actors who took over playing Abel which fucks with the natural time that passes in-show. To account for this, I’m sure they just wrote the dialogue where Jax says “he’s 5” to make it work.
If we go by Abel really being 5 and ignore the in-show day counts (day/night/next day) then from S1EP1 to S7 Finale... 5 years pass from beginning to end.
SOA Season 7 ends roughly in September 2013.
UPDATE: August 25, 2008 plus 5 years = August, 2013. Abel starts school around his 5th birthday and Jax's dies shortly after in EP13. Early September might still work for the series finale.
2017: Emily gives birth to her son. Emily’s son is only 10m old in S1 of Mayans MC (Sept, 2018). September, 2018 - 10m= Cristobal is born in Dec, 2017.
The name “Cristobal” carries meanings like “bearer of Christ” or “holds Christ in his heart” perfectly fits the month of December (the month of Jesus’ birth) and Sutter’s weird fixation with Catholicism.
Emily conceived Cristobal late March/Early April 2017. Emily was described as having an education in law. If she was 18 in 2010, 7 years would be reasonable enough for some law school and dating/marrying Miguel before conceiving. Point being: she didn’t immediately find Miguel after EZ’s arrest and the abortion.
2017/ Early 2018: EZ had “6 years shaved off his sentence”. EZ is released and does his probation in Hollister (Source: my main man, Hank “Perro/Oc”. ) after serving about 7/8yrs in Stockton and accepting the Confidential Informant deal. 7th Annual Santo Padre Mayans M.C. Rally occurs, Angel has the poster in his house now.
September 2018: MAYANS MC 1st Season. Almost exactly 5 years after S7 finale of SOA.
Episode “Cucaracha/K'uruch” takes place in September, 2018. Source: Adelita’s laptop date.
Later in episode 9 “Serpiente/Chikchan”, Potter hands Miguel his folder of the deal to sign showing surveillance dates in the month of September, 2018 from EZ’s intel.
EZ Reyes joins Santo Padre. He is a prospect to his brother, Angel Reyes. He still has 8 months left to become a full-patch member.
In “Perro/Oc” Angel, Coco and Gilly discuss bringing EZ in on their Adelita secret. It is stated he is 9m shy of a patch. Later it is stated EZ has “about 8 months” left, season 1 of Mayans takes place over the course of about 2 or so weeks making this totally round-able.
September, 2018, EZ has 8m left. EZ has prospected for only 4m prior to the Pilot episode off-screen. In the pilot, EZ already knows about the “dresses” insinuating that he has been around long enough to know what the club does for the cartel.
Sept. is 9th month of the year. 9th month- 4m= 5th month of the year. 5th month of the year is May.
EZ began prospecting in May, 2018.
Early October 2018: S1Ep10 Finale: SAMCRO (Redwood Original) is back in the gun business. Alvarez does not have his pipeline through Connor Malone. Les Packer who previously voted against gun running is also having SAMDINO deal. Alvarez retires from the M.C. joining Miguel Galindo as his advisor. Bishop is now EZ’s sponsor. WTF Sutter.
2/24/2019: Updated timeline info thanks to a comment down below, who found Abel's exact birthday in SOA S7EP13 "Papa's Goods".
