Preview: S.W.A.T. S03 E12

‘S.W.A.T.’ is a crime action television series which derives its popularity from two other successful productions: the 1975 TV show of the same name that ‘S.W.A.T.’ is based on and the 2002 crime drama, ‘The Shield’ in whose shared universe it exists in.  Produced by CBS, the show returned last week after a mid-season break of over a month.

The show follows Sergeant Hondo, a former Marine who leads a new Special Weapons and Tactics Unit. The series employs a “monster-of-the-week” kind of format wherein Hondo’s team is tasked with stopping a new crime each episode in a self-sustained narrative. There are overarching narratives too, obviously.

The eleventh episode of the third season of ‘S.W.A.T.’ is titled ‘Bad Cop’ and serves as the first part of a two-episode story. It starts with Street missing in action. The rest of the officers are concerned about his absence. Their worries are heightened when they think that he might be helping his brother who is involved in some dangerous situation related to a criminal enterprise.

In reality, Street is taking time off as he killed a couple of people while helping his brother. A video of him dragging their bodies is being used to blackmail him. Street comes back to the office to take another few weeks off. However, Hicks threatens to reassign him. This makes Street quit as he sees no other option.

Meanwhile, the S.W.A.T. team is investigating a case involving several casino thefts. They catch one person from the group but the heists continue. Eventually, the team finds out that a woman named Rachel has been swindling prisoners by promising to marry them if they take part in a heist.

It turns out that Rachel is not even her real name. Since the city’s casinos have become more alert, “Rachel” targets a private game. The S.W.A.T. team finds out and arrests her by storming into the game.

In the end, it is revealed that Street hasn’t actually quit. It was a ploy of his with Hicks and Hondo. Street had been spying on his brother’s criminal superior as they are planning on catching him!
