Mama Colton (Sheryl Lee Ralph) is a bounty hunter and the matriarch of the Colton Family. She’s also the owner of Mama’s Diner in Louisiana that serves as the headquarters for the Colton Family Bail Bonds business and might soon be famous for its buttermilk pie.
In Episode 1×16, MacGyver (Lucas Till) and Jack Dalton (George Eads) encounter the Colton Family while tracking the dangerous fugitive Aaron Deckard. The Colton’s had already kidnapped Deckard, planning to collect the bounty on Deckards head.
After a near-death-experience on a plane in Episode 2×18, son Billy Colton (Lance Gross) and Riley Davis (Tristin Mays) start dating. Later in the season, Billy asks Riley to come work for the Colton family so they can spend more time together, but Riley doesn’t want to leave her Phoenix family.
In Episode 3×21, Mama Colton gets Riley to help her and Billy for a bounty-hunting job in Paris. While on the stakeout, Riley finds “sexy” text messages on Billy’s phone to another woman. Back in California, she breaks up with him without discussing the reason, believing that he’s not worth her time.
