The premiere takes up the story from where the show had left off in the season 3 finale — with Hondo tracking down the head of a cartel, El Diablo. The criminal warns him: “I want you to remember when it happens and the city goes up in flames, remember I tried to stop it.” Further investigation reveals that El Diablo’s nephew, “Brick Layer,” plans on taking over the reins of the cartel. He additionally owns a narco tank.
Although the S.W.A.T team arrests Brick, he informs them that he can help them out if he can choose his prison. He says that there is a gang who has crossed the border and plans to attack LA. The crew realizes that Brick is telling the truth when the largest blood bank on the west side explodes and kills seven. Again, the team manages to catch three of the perpetrators, but not before they successfully cause another bombing at a YouTuber’s event. The remaining member of the gang is Frank Tammel, who is arrested as well after Hondo breaks two of his ribs.
The premiere additionally addresses the pandemic when people have just started donning masks. Luca calls in from Berlin, explaining that he is where the virus has hit hard.
