Self-defense? Yeah, okay.
Burrows is trying to say KC killed peck in self-defense which is why she didn’t call it in. (Rolls eyes). She tells him that she went to Peck’s apartment to pick up the papers he said he had in order to help put Kim away. When she got there Peck was already dead but she didn’t want to call it in because she wanted to find the papers.
Understandable but she was there illegally, so that looks really bad.
Hondo is convinced she didn’t kill Peck but everyone is ignoring him just because he’s invested in the whole case. He asks why she would kill him when Peck was the only real shot they had of arresting Kim. (That’s what I said!)
Go, Diego, Go!
Luca, Tan, and Deacon are on the hunt for the other shooter, Diego. They spot him trying to get onto a bus to Vegas. The only problem is, he spots them and runs through a window into a retail store. Luca, the flying SWAT squirrel, takes down Diego with a leap of faith over a display table.
When pigs fly! – Sorry, I had to…Moving on
Back at the station, Jess pulls Hondo into her office where Plank is waiting. Hondo and Plank get into it with each other after Plank tells him that he received a call from Kim complaining about Hondo. This sets Hondo off and basically says Plank is a snake and is covering Kim’s ass just like everyone else. Jess tries to convince Hondo that Plank isn’t the enemy but he’s definitely not seeing it that way.
“We need to get on the same page.” – Jess
“Yeah, what page is that.” – Hondo
Deacon and Luca bring Diego down to the station where Hondo meets with him face-to-face, asking him who ordered the hit. Diego says he never met the guy who hired him but he will say any name Hondo wants him to. Hondo actually thought about it but ultimately declined.
“That’s not how we do things here.” – Hondo
3 rights don’t make a left…
Street tries to get Deacon to sign the paper he needs to give to his mother’s parole officer. Deacon tells him that he can’t cut corners just because he’s scared of what Hondo will say, or do. He needs to face the bull head on and do things the right way.
Good Evening Commissioner..(name the movie!)
Jess has a plan that involves Plank but Hondo isn’t having it. Kim is holding an event to get an investor for a “new development”. Plank is invited and going undercover with Chris as an undercover waitress, to cover him.
Plank tries to get Kim to give up the real reason he needs the money but Kim doesn’t bite. After blowing the whole operation, Plank gives a speech to everyone at the event about how Kim is a fraud. Exposing that the building he’s trying to sell isn’t worth half of what he said. He also says that Kim bought the building from himself, leaving everyone in doubts about investing.
Sing like a canary
Hondo asks Diego to give up Kim’s supply in exchange for freedom. He tells Hondo the supply is in a shipyard. Hondo tells the team that Kim is unloading the supply make the money for the loan payment. The team rounds up and heads to the shipyard but stops Hondo from ruining his career. They have his back in more ways than one and assure they will grab Kim, for him and KC.
While at the shipyard, the team anxiously waits until the exchange is made. Kim shows the supply to the buyers, the buyers show the money. Kim shakes the buyers’ hands confirming the deal which prompts the team to move in. Street takes down the buyer by smashing his head into the steering wheel. Chris saves Deacon’s ass by taking out Kim’s driver. Deacon grabs Kim and brings him in.
Hondo and KC are waiting at HQ to watch Kim walk into the station in handcuffs.
Doesn’t sound good
Street pulls up to an abandoned house and talks to the cop standing outside. He let’s Street know that he caught his mom trespassing. Street’s mom went back to the house they used to live in before she went away. She wanted to grab something she got from her mother that she hid under the floorboards. She tells Street she doesn’t know how shes going to make it outside of prison.
Street finally gets the paper signed right before Hondo expresses his gratitude to the team for having his back. For once, Hondo is speechless.
“I really don’t know what to say except, I’ll never forget it. Thank you” – Hondo
I’m not crying, you’re crying!
Next week on SWAT…
Deacon and Hondo side-by-side trying to survive in a forest against an army of men, with no one knowing where they are for backup.
