S.W.A.T. Season 5 Episode 1 Recap
In the first episode of season 5, titled ‘Vagabundo,’ Hondo leaves town because of how things turn out after he speaks up about racism in LAPD. This move backfires, and his bosses have to let him go. So, Hondo is now in Mexico. However, trouble follows there, too, as he sees a white man threatening to snatch a farm that belongs to a woman named Delfina Reyes. Hondo manages to keep her away from the man, but during a trip to the market, problems resurface.
There, Hondo and Delfina spot AJ Novak, the man who wants possession of her farm. To make things worse, his new right-hand guy turns out to be Delfina’s ex-fiancé, Gabriel. Hondo fights the men and proceeds to do a background search on Novak. It turns out that he is extremely wealthy and has even bought off the cops in the area. Hondo is arrested in no time and told to meet Novak in exchange for walking free. It turns out that Novak’s father is wanted in Ireland and other Eastern European countries, which is why his son is hiding in Mexico.
In the meeting that follows the “freedom” deal presented to Hondo, Novak reveals all of that, including the proposition of an agreement between him and Delfina. Hondo obliges, having run out of options to overpower him. However, he realizes that the farm is situated atop silver mines which is why Novak’s father had arranged for the death of Delfina’s father years ago. In the end, Novak kidnaps Delfina and offers to buy the farm for one peso.
