Further, we get a glimpse of what the remaining squad was doing while Hondo was spending his demotion in Mexico. Jim Street was busy with liver donation surgery for his mother. Victor Tan was working under Donovan Rocker, under 50 squad.
Further, Tan informs that the team may not reform and that Hondo has been sent in exile. Deacon had stepped back from the 20 Squad and worked on the academy’s recruits. In addition, Luca and Chris went to visit him, where Luca suggested taking over Hondo’s position in his absence, but Deacon refused to go behind Hondo’s back.
Meanwhile, in Mexico, a local cop Charro follows Hondo to rescue Delfina from the grips of a landgrabber Arthur Novak. AJ and Arthur threatened Delfina to convince her mother to sell the land. But, she tells them that her mother will never sell, no matter what. Next, Charro and Hondo corner drunk Gabriel and confronted him about Delfina’s situation in the second episode of SWAT Season 5. He tells them how AJ and Novak are torturing Delfina.
Further, Gabriel also tells them that Novak killed Miguel after discovering the silver on the land. Finally, Gabriel confirms Miguel’s death by showing Hondo the hammer used to kill him. When Charro takes the hammer to his boss, he is disgusted by his boss’s reaction, who did not give him an arrest warrant.
