S.W.A.T. Season 5 Episode 8 Recap
In episode 8 of the current installment, titled ‘Safe House,’ Nichelle finally meets Hondo’s mother. During an awkward conversation between the two most important women in his life, Hondo gets a call from work. He rushes to the site of emergency, where an armed man wreaks havoc in a liquor store. The scared storeowner Ali then reveals the entire story. There was a young girl of Spanish descent snatched away by a group of men. Only one of them was captured, but he didn’t have much information about their current whereabouts.
Later, the team somehow identifies the missing woman as Jenni Moreno, who had been staying at a house for immigrant women. She was earlier chased by a gang that wanted her to act as a drug mule. So, she shifted to the States all the way from Honduras. However, she chose to withhold her problems from even the lady who ran the shelter, Mama Pena. The team finally realizes that the gang they are after goes by the name “Central Rebels.” Jenny had escaped, but she still has some of their product. That is why two men from the gang were looking for her at Mama Pena’s.
Luca and Chris show up to save the ladies in the house and arrest the men. Mama Pena then reveals that Jenni had a backpack when she arrived, and one of the women took it and ran. She was trying to run from Luca’s neighbor, who was going to give the product to the gang in exchange for getting Jenni back. In the end, the team finds him and arrests him for possession of drugs.
