    Street's Mom Want to Move In With Him The S.W.A.T. episode "Source" shows the team trying to protect a pretty uncooperative Russian journalist who pissed off some very powerful people. They have to figure out a way to keep her and the city safe while also letting her do her job.

    On a more personal note, Street's mom Karen is getting out of prison and she wants to stay with him. While most of the team thinks this is a pretty bad idea but Street feels too much loyalty to his mom to turn her away.

    Will Street Take his Mom In?

    The S.W.A.T. episode "Source" begins with a kid witnessing his dad abuse his mom. His mom goes to his room and shows him she has a gun. She tells him to get his dad into his room, so he calls his dad a coward and his mom shoots his dad when he comes in. Then she tells the kid to tell the police that his dad came at him. Turns out, that was a flashback to Street's past. In the present, Street's visiting his mom Karen in prison. She says she declined the ho...

    Chris Proves Herself Yet Again

    The S.W.A.T. episode "Patrol" begins with the team's monthly "Patrol Day." And they're psyched. Mumford asked for Chris to be his patrol partner, which she's not that happy about. Jessica, meanwhile, recruits Luca and Deacon to work with at-risk youth for the day.

    Hondo, though, has taken a personal day. He's actually out helping his step-sister Bree move their sick dad to L.A. The problem? Their dad doesn't want to move. Bree still wants him to move, but Hondo wants to leave him alone. But they reminisce about how he fought for civil rights, and taught them about music and cooking. Hondo apologizes for dumping everything on her and agrees to go see their dad.

    Tan and Street's Patrol Day

    Tan and Street wind up chasing some guy through the neighborhood and arrest him. However, Tan lost his radio in the process and they find out that some cheerleader took it and won't give it back.

    Jessica and Michael Get Involved in a Hostage Situation There's more to the case than meets the eye in the S.W.A.T. episode "Armory." What looks like a straightforward, though serious, hostage situation turns out to be a man just trying to save his sister's life. But when the team doesn't listen to him, things get even more dangerous when the man, Angel, winds up taking Jessica and Michael hostage.

    Chris Fixes Street's Love Life

    The S.W.A.T. episode "Armory" begins with a very rich, fancy man coming home because he forgot something. At first he can't find his wife, but he finds her upstairs getting dressed. He leaves completely unaware that a naked Street is hiding in there! He comes back, though, so Street has to jump into the mansion's pool. Of course he has to brag to Chris about it. But apparently, he didn't know she was married and now he feels used. Chris isn't buying it.

    Chris then comes across Street's dating profile and mocks it mercilessly. She asks why he doesn't smile in any of his pictur...

    Can the Team Save a Kidnapping Victim?

    The S.W.A.T. team has to track down a woman who's been kidnapped in this episode titled "Payback." It really turns into an interesting look at veterans and their lives after they come home. The episode begins with some creepy guy watching a woman at a club. Suddenly, a gun goes off and the woman gets grabbed! Turns out, that guy wasn't so creepy after all and was her bodyguard. He's obviously a pretty bad one, though, because these men get away with her rather easily.

    The Search for Juliette

    Hondo and the team are called in and talk to Rick, the bodyguard. He and Hondo were both in the Marines, so they bond right away. He tells Hondo and Luca about Juliette as well as a tip about her sleazy ex-boyfriend. Deacon goes to be with Juliette's parents while the rest of the team storm the ex-boyfriend's house, where some guys happen to be counting some money. It's just a red herring, though; Juliette's not there. The boyfriend swears he hasn't seen her in a ...

    Christina and the Other Woman

    Things get personal for Hondo when his friend and C.I. gets killed during the team's case on the S.W.A.T. episode, "Crews" and the lines between professional and personal blur, especially after Hondo meets the man's family and has to face their judgment.

    "Crews" begins with a group stealing from an armored truck and then shooting two guards. Hondo, meanwhile, meets with his informant Craig, who happens to be absolutely hilarious. Craig, who owns a payday loan shop, tells Hondo about another loan shop that has been laundering money and might be behind a string of robberies of armored trucks. Craig thinks the feds are looking into the robberies too and could pay him more, but Hondo says he'll see what he can do.

    Will Another Woman Make the Team?

    Back at the precinct, Luca leads a test for recruits. Street and Chris wonder if the sole woman in the group will make it. The woman, Erica, goes up to Chris and asks her to help her at the range, but Chri...

    The Team Faces a Killer from the Past

    The team gets a blast from the past in the S.W.A.T. episode "Ghosts," when a killer from a case from two years ago resurfaces. And we get to see a new side to Luca when he takes the case particularly hard.

    The S.W.A.T. episode "Ghosts" begins with a flashback to two years ago. Buck's still leading the team and Jessica's just starting out in her job. The team's chasing a serial killer called "the vanity killer," who goes after Hollywood hopefuls and just took his latest victim. They go into a warehouse and find the victim, who shows Luca that another guy is being held there too. While Luca's taking care of them, the team finds the killer, who's ready to blow a whole bunch of C4. The guy, who's chained up, begs Luca to help him, but they have to get out before the place blows, so Luca promises to come back for him. Luca gets the woman out and is about to run back in, but of course, the place blows up. It's absolutely heartbreaking.

    The Team Becomes the Center of an Immigration Scandal

    S.W.A.T. gets extremely topical during the episode titled, "Fences" as the team and the community debate illegal immigration. And Street ends up at the center of the controversy when he gets an undocumented immigrant, who did nothing wrong, arrested. I love it when shows are relevant to what's going on in the real world, and "Fences" does offer unique perspectives from the families, community, and police.

    "Fences" begins with a group of criminals driving in a car and killing a construction worker. Hondo and Jessica, meanwhile, are hooking up when they get a text from Hicks about the murder. ICE wants backup, so it's back to work for Hondo. Plus, they've got another problem: Someone leaked Jessica and Michael's proposal to the press before they could bring it to the board.

    Will the Team find Ochoa?

    A bunch of ICE officers round up a group of immigrants, including some of the guys from the cars. They're looking for the leader from the murder: A g...

    Why Do Sovereigns Have Liquid Cyanide? The latest episode of S.W.A.T., titled "Contamination," opens with the team taking down a potential drug ring. Things are bigger than they initially seem when the crate gained from the raid is full of liquid cyanide and there's enough to create a bomb that will level Venice. The man arrested during the raid makes it clear the crate wasn't his and admits there have been three others. Now it's a case of finding the buyers of the cyanide before it's too late.
    Sovereigns Shoot a Cop
    After seeing S.W.A.T gain custody of the crate, the two buyers drive off. However, Donna ends up pulling them over due to expired license tags. When Donna gets to the driver's window, she sees a sign about the two being Sovereigns and the police having no jurisdiction to pull them over and question them. The driver, Harley, continues to share this view, while the passenger, Crocket, hides his face with a hoodie.

    Hondo and a DEA Friend Team Up to Take Down a Drug Ring

    Things get real in the S.W.A.T. episode "K-Town" when Hondo and the team team up with a DEA agent and Hondo's close friend, K.C. When K.C.'s son is kidnapped, Hondo winds up blurring the lines of how far a police officer can go when he takes things personally.

    The S.W.A.T. episode "K-Town" begins with some masked people attacking a restaurant owner and his workers. Turns out, the restaurant is really a front for a drug business and the criminals steal all the drugs, but the owner swears he'll find them. The criminals escape in a van and take off their masks to reveal they're really Hondo and the gang!

    Can Hondo and the Team Stop a Prison Riot?

    S.W.A.T.'s "Seizure" begins with an insane prison riot. Three gangs have taken over three sections of the prison. They have keys to all the cells and the armory. Guards are locked up and one of the gang leaders, Gunnar, actually stabs a nun and takes the warden hostage.

    Of course, Hondo and the gang are already on their way. The prison owner tells them that the white pride prisoners started the riot and the other two gangs took over when the guards were preoccupied with the first gang. When they go over who the hostages are, though, Hondo recognizes the nun. Now this is personal. Just then, they find a live video feed of Gunnar and the warden. The warden holds up a sign, and then Gunnar kills him. The sign says more will die.
