S.W.A.T. Season 5 Episode 4 Recap
Episode 4, titled ‘Sentinel,’ starts with a man being arrested for allegedly causing a nuisance in a neighborhood but claims that he is innocent besides being a witness to a robbery. Jim is informed about his mother’s death, and he is enraged after realizing that she overdosed. The investigation leads the team to Tomas Hernandez, the man who is the culprit according to the suspect in custody.
Meanwhile, Chris thinks it is necessary for Deacon to be aware of how this year’s recruiter list is lacking in female participants because of the unfairness of their training regime. The S.W.A.T. team finds a lead through public input, but the given location takes them to a random person instead of Tomas. They continue to receive false leads on account of the bounty organized by Vance.
Victoria Mejia finally shows up at the headquarters to explain that Tomas is her ex, and they have a daughter who is diabetic. Jim realizes that of all places, they chose to rob a pharmacy to get insulin for Tomas’ daughter. The S.W.A.T. team locate the men who are just about to proceed with their next robbery when Deacon catches Tomas and arrests him.
Hondo finds one of Tomas’ accomplices, Danny, who has captured a civilian named Mitch, as he starts a conversation about the little girl who desperately needs the medicine. Once Danny agrees to put the weapon down, Sanchez makes his arrest. Deacon finally modifies the program to suit the needs of women, and Tan considers giving the bounty to Victoria Mejia.
