Carlos Vela’s return was the story, but it was the Galaxy that landed all the El Trafico blows. Are Los Angeles’ original powers back? Are LAFC in trouble? Or was it just a mirage?

Plus, gloating over Alphonso Davies’ inclusion on MLS Mount Rushmore, Inter Miami’s first-ever win, Sounders payback on the Timbers and constructive criticism for Calen in the Mailbag.
