S.W.A.T. Season 5 Episode 1 Spoilers
In the first episode of season 5, titled ‘Vagabundo,’ we will find Hondo in a whole new place—Mexico! After being demoted, he will move to a small town south of the border to reassess his life. He pays a heavy price for speaking to the press about racism in LAPD, which means Hondo might be feeling the sting of injustice all the more. It seems like his plan will be to lay low and figure out what he wants to do on the professional front.
But Hondo may not be cut out for a quiet and simple life as he will soon find himself dragged into the affairs of a local family. While he will be out and about in Mexico, he will come across Delfina and her mother Isabel, who are struggling to keep land grabbers away from their farm. And as reluctant as Hondo may be about getting involved, he won’t be able to stand on the sidelines and watch things go downhill for the mother and daughter. Here is an exciting promo for the season 5 premiere!
