The bonus scene starts out with Eddie (Carlito Olivero) and Gina (Alexandra Rodriguez) getting their groove on. Everything’s fine until Eddie gets a call. Something’s not right. He throws his phone down and leaves without explaining to Gina what’s happened.
In the next scene, Eddie is crying Sofia (Gabrielle Walsh) comes up to him. This isn’t a random meeting, Eddie called her. “I just knew you’d understand,” he says to Sofia. He explains what happened at the detention center. His pal Raul had a bad asthma attack, and Eddie was punished for trying to help him.
Like Eddie, Raul got out of the detention center, but he couldn’t afford to see a doctor for his asthma. Now Raul is dead. “Healthcare should be a basic human right” Sofia tells Eddie. Eddie is so appalled that he can’t get basic healthcare because he’s undocumented.
“We need to use our anger to get loud and let people know what’s really going on,” Sofia replies. Someone get this girl a medal. She’s so right! Eddie’s not sure about Sofia’s advice at first.
“I think we all feel that way. That our voice doesn’t matter, but it does. And the more of us that speak up, the more we will be heard,” Sofia says, encouragingly.
Even though Eddie can’t vote, Sofia reminds him that they can tell their stories, fight for reform and support organizations that believe in their rights. Sofia’s words make a huge difference. He texts Gina and tells her that he’s “ready to make some change.”
The missing scene was written by East Los High co-creator/EP Kathleen Bedoya and directed by co-showrunner/EP Katie Elmore Mota. All episodes of East Los High are now streaming, only on Hulu
