S.W.A.T. Season 5 Episode 2 Recap
This week's episode titled 'Madrugada' marks Christina Alonso and Dominique Luca's return to S.W.A.T. as they learn that the 20 Squad is not functional anymore. However, Luca insists he can replace Hondo if Deacon is willing to reassemble the team again. In Mexico, Hondo enlists Charro's help to get Delfina back from Arthur Novak. Hondo and Charro find Gabriel, who then divulges that AJ killed Miguel because there was silver buried in his land.
Charro asks for professional assistance from his boss, who dismisses his request after telling him to bring the evidence to Mexico City. Having no other option, Charro and Hondo load themselves with weapons and inspect the compound where Delfina is being held. A few seconds later, they spot Gabriel pulling Delfina out of the room when AJ intervenes. He is just about to attack her, but Hondo shoots him.
Arthur rushes in and sees his son lying motionless. Although he is now being sought after by the enemy, Hondo tells them that Isabel would hand over the deed in exchange for her daughter's freedom. At the site, there is a sudden explosion, and Novak tries to whisk Delfina away. Hondo takes down the gunmen before shooting Novak and rescuing Delfina. The men are ultimately arrested. In the end, Deacon admits that the 20 Squad is incomplete without Hondo, who walks in at the same moment, surprising everyone.
