S.W.A.T. (2017) s05e04 Episode Script


Previously on SWAT - How's your mom doing? - Good.
Uh, transplant took.
She's out of prison, too, living at the halfway house.
Thanks for asking.
20-Squad might not be re-forming.
What's Hondo got to say about this? Rumor is he's in Mexico, but nobody from SWAT's heard from him.
I'm sorry I haven't given you an answer about us.
I don't want you to feel pressured.
When I was in Germany, I, um I didn't need 20-Squad to get me through my time away, but I did need you.
Soon as we get the new assignments, I'm asking you out.
It's time to get back to work.
- 20-Squad's been reinstated.
- Who's team leader? Sanchez comes to us with the commission's full seal of approval.
Why are you here, exactly? This is SWAT.
This is the brass ring every cop's reaching for.
Look, I know you.
There's no way that you'd do that unless there was something in it for you.
This whole thing with Sanchez It doesn't strike you as wrong? Luca, I knew what I was coming back to.
There's no way a guy like Sanchez comes back here without an agenda.
When the bosses heard that you were returning to SWAT, they came up with a plan.
Rodrigo Sanchez.
They sent him to get you to quit.
Sanchez is in on this? Yo, Tomas, we got what we came for.
Let's get out of here.
- Sentinel? - Yeah, I think they're still in there.
Whoa, man.
What the hell you doing? Stay there.
- Oh, God.
- Oh, God.
Tomas Hernandez? We know you're in there.
Reports of shots fired, 600 block of North Bell Street.
22-David to Command.
Show 26-David and me responding.
911 caller said there might be up to four shooters.
The one day we carpool in to work.
22-David, the next responding officer is five minutes out.
Looks like we're flying solo.
Let's go.
Hands in the air.
Hands in the air.
We're just recording for the Sentinel app.
Look, get across the street and take cover.
Do not approach, or we'll arrest you.
You go it? Drop that bat.
LAPD! Drop your weapon! - Don't shoot! - Drop the weapon.
Drop it! - Don't shoot.
- Drop the gun and put your hands behind your back.
I'm not who you're looking for.
- You the homeowner? - No, I live a few blocks away.
I'm just trying to help out.
Hey, miss, we're LAPD.
We're gonna get you some help, okay? Can you tell me your name? - Mm.
- Luca, she should get - to a hospital ASAP.
- 22-David.
We're Code 4, one suspect in custody.
Requesting emergency transport for one victim.
Multiple GSWs.
If you don't live here, how'd you know she needed help? I saw a robbery alert pop up on Sentinel, so I rushed over.
She's going into shock.
Whatever went down here, I take it it woke up the whole neighborhood.
Looks like an attempted robbery gone bad.
Gunshot victim's on route to the hospital as we speak.
- Where's Street? - He got called back to HQ.
Hicks wanted to see him.
Something urgent.
- Everything okay? - We're in the dark on that, too.
Probably the way Sanchez wants it.
I looped Deac in on him.
So how are we gonna handle him now, going forward? Still working that out.
If he's playing games in the field, that could be a safety issue.
Deac's right.
20-Squad will have your back.
I'll tell the team.
Let's keep it between us for now.
Till we find out what Sanchez is really after.
Whatever it is, he ain't gonna win.
In the meantime, let's get some witness statements.
- Hey.
- Hey.
What's going on? Why don't you sit down, Jim? It's my mom, isn't it? I'm sorry to have to tell you this, but your mother passed away.
When? - This morning.
- How'd she die? It's too early to say, but there were no signs of force or trauma.
But drugs? Paraphernalia and residue were found on the scene, so, probably, yeah.
So, uh, I donated a piece of my liver in a risky surgery to give her a second Well, no, 12th chance And she's out of prison less than two months and she OD's.
You're gonna have intense feelings.
It's understandable, and it's normal.
- I'm here to talk if you need.
- Thank you.
I'll clear your bereavement with Sergeant Sanchez.
You take all the time you need.
No, I'd rather stay and focus on work.
You might want to take two or three days to process things.
Grief takes many different forms.
None of them are predictable.
Grief might not be predictable, but she was.
Look, everyone here knows my relationship with my mom was messed up.
I loved her, but at least now, I know she's at peace.
Sir I'm okay.
Look, um, if your focus slips at all, I'm pulling you from the field, understood? Yeah.
Sorry about your mom, Jim.
Back to work.
Right call? Situation like this, there's no right call.
Look, I already told you guys, I was just trying save Serena from the robbers Tomas Hernandez and his buddies.
You affiliated with Tomas's crew? - Then how do you know his name? - It's all over Sentinel.
Sentinel Guard? You mean the public safety app? I just downloaded Facebook, like, last month so someone's got to fill me in on the technicalities.
Sentinel Guard's an app that pulls crime info off of police scanners and publishes it to users in the area.
It also lets users report crimes and submit tips.
I thought that's what 911 is for.
- Cops don't care about this crew.
- Says you.
You think we showed up here on a whim? Hernandez and his buddies have been preying on this neighborhood for weeks.
They just shot the owner of Leavitt's Pharmacy yesterday.
So when I heard they were here at Serena's house, - I stepped in.
- Well, you playing vigilante might have got your neighbor killed.
That thought ever cross your mind? Look, I got here before you guys did.
I'm just trying to defend my neighborhood.
Lot of the Sentinel users would do the same.
Good Samaritan or not, you better hope none of the bullets in Serena trace back to your gun.
If he's telling the truth, we've still got three violent robbers out there.
Plus angry civilians itching to turn vigilante.
Looks like we better help RHD find these guys before robberies turn into homicides.
Looks like the homeowner who got shot, Serena Fuentes, is gonna pull through, no thanks to that vigilante neighbor.
That would be Marc Grantley.
No priors, legally registered firearm, lives a few blocks down from Serena.
All signs indicate that he's telling the truth about Tomas Hernandez doing the shooting.
RHD's been tracking Hernandez for a few weeks, but we haven't made much headway.
No known address.
We haven't got a clear look at his associates.
- Buttoned-up crew? - Not especially, but they're growing more violent by the day, and I'm up to my eyeballs in open cases.
Could really use your help on this one.
Well, what are friends for, Detective? Tomas Hernandez.
Record for assault, suspected in over a half dozen armed robberies, most recent one being Serena Fuentes's home and Leavitt's Pharmacy.
They hit the pharmacy yesterday, shot two workers.
- Any luck with surveillance footage? - No dice.
But we're not the only ones looking for him.
Are you talking about the wannabe jokers - on the Sentinel Guard app? - No.
Talking about Hernandez's gambling problem.
He's got ties to Mikhal Kovic, aka Russian Mike.
Tan, haven't we dealt with this guy before? Yeah.
If Hernandez racked up some gambling debts, he could be getting desperate.
Would explain the uptick in violence.
You and Chris talk to Russian Mike, see what Hernandez owes him.
You can fill us in on any leads - on the other two suspects.
- Will do.
Hey, Commander, we got another issue.
I downloaded the Sentinel Guard app.
A lot of users are praising Marc for intervening today.
Well, everybody loves an underdog.
Yeah, well, we're likely to have a hell of a lot more of them.
What are you talking about? The CEO of Sentinel Guard, Vince Jones, just put a $100,000 bounty out on our suspect.
Oh, great.
All right, look, reach out to the CEO.
If he's got this many users interested in the case, maybe's he's got some information we could use.
You can say, "I told you so" about me doing the surgery for my mom, but I couldn't live with myself if I hadn't given her every chance.
Even if she did throw it all away.
I really admired you for doing that for her.
It scared me that you were putting yourself at risk, but I admired it.
You need me, I'm here.
I got to help Burrows dig through some new surveillance footage, but, uh, tell that grumpy Russian I said "Hi.
" You got anything with actual sugar, or is everyone here on some juice butt cleanse from hell? Frank's burger joint is still open if you're craving some grease.
Best news I've had all day.
Sanchez, you got a second? It's about Street.
Yeah, Hicks told me about his mom.
She sounds like a real piece of work.
Well, there's a lot of history there, not much of it good.
But that's why I think it might be smart to let Street take a couple days off.
To process it all.
Yeah? Well, Street says he wants to keep rolling.
He hasn't always had the best judgement when it comes to his mom.
Somebody might need to step in and help guide him.
Yeah, I don't I don't think that's my place.
Or yours.
He's an adult, yeah? I'm just looking out for a teammate.
Yeah, I appreciate your concern, but it's my call.
I'm keeping him on.
You want a burger or fries? My treat.
No, I'm good.
No, no, no.
You tell Campos that if he wants to bet on Cleveland, he pays his damn tab.
Till then, I don't want to hear it.
How's business, Mikhal? Cops here to steal another one of my son's prized possessions? Nope.
Our bat hunting days are over.
Besides, your son got a better end of that deal.
- So what is it this time? - We're looking for one - of your associates, Tomas Hernandez.
- Not familiar.
You sure? We hear he's been placing bets with a bookie they call "Russian Mike.
" Is there another Russian Mike - taking bets in town? - I'm no bookie.
I loaned Tomas 25 grand, and now he's MIA.
I want my money back.
I'm sure Tomas knows you're looking to recover your losses? With interest, and he better hope you find him before my people do.
Unless you want to risk an abetting charge, better call off your dogs.
Can't stop what's already set in motion.
Hey, you're not the one we're after, but if you want that to change He mentioned something about needing the money for his brother.
That's all I got for you.
Thank you.
Vince Jones, I'm Sergeant Kay, this is Off Officer Luca.
Come on.
You're the star of our top user post today.
Thanks in part to you, Sentinel moved across the one-million user threshold this morning.
This must be very exciting new for you.
Yeah, it's a big day for us.
Well, then we won't take too much of your time.
We're hoping to get all the data that your company's compiled on Tomas Hernandez.
Oh, our users are sending in tons of tips on that case.
They're very eager to catch Tomas and his crew.
Well, the police should be the ones catching them.
You should be, but you're overworked, you're outnumbered, you're underfunded.
Sentinel Guard is designed to help the police by using community resources to solve crimes.
It also encourages untrained civilians to engage with armed and dangerous suspects.
Or turn vigilante, like this morning.
Your user's actions almost got a woman killed.
We don't encourage that kind of behavior.
We ask that our users only observe and report back to help you do your jobs better.
Your $100,000 bounty just now says otherwise.
Tell me this.
What do you think would have happened to that woman this morning had a Sentinel user not intervened? Maybe she might actually be dead.
Okay, well, if Sentinel Guard is designed to help cops, why don't you give us all the information that your users have collected on Tomas Hernandez images, videos, all of it? Of course.
I'll have my assistant send over the data ASAP.
- Thank you.
- All right.
Heard you guys got Vince Jones to cough up data from the Sentinel Guard app.
Yeah, for what that's worth.
Apparently, the files just came in all 900 of them.
Hernandez's bookie mentioned that his debt might be related to his brother.
- Maybe that helps? - Yeah, I'm looking into it.
- Thanks.
- One other problem.
I just checked the applicants list for this year's SWAT Academy.
- There are zero women on it.
- I know.
I know.
I I'm trying to figure that out.
What do you mean? The female applicants that we did have pulled themselves from consideration at the last second, including Fowler.
I thought Fowler was training with Luca - for that exact purpose.
- Me, too.
This came out of the blue.
I've asked Hicks to extend the application window by 48 hours.
I-I just don't know if that's enough time for us to fix this.
What happened? I sprained my ankle in SWAT Academy.
That's why you pulled your name from consideration? Sprains heal quickly, and we can really use you here.
No offense, but I wasn't even sure you liked me, let alone wanted me on SWAT.
Pretty sure this is the longest conversation - we've ever had.
- When you joined, I was going through a lot.
My friend died right in front of me.
It really spun me out.
- I'm so sorry.
- No, I'm sorry.
I should have been more supportive.
Truth is, SWAT needs more women like you.
I was interested, but I decided not to take the risks that come with trying out.
- What do you mean? - I took a closer look at the SWAT training, and fitness standards.
Not only are they out of date, they're biased in favor of male cadets.
You've got the skills and drive to get past all the boys' club nonsense.
This isn't a willpower issue.
It goes deeper than that.
And I'm not the only walking wounded.
You know Officer Park, North Hollywood Division? - Yeah.
- She tore her rotator cuff - trying out for one of the SWAT PFQs.
- A cadet had the same thing happen when I was training for SWAT.
Let me guess female officer? Nicki Bradley.
How'd you know that? SWAT PFQs put a ton of emphasis on explosive strength.
Push-ups, pull-ups, box jumps are all exercises proven to put women at a physiological disadvantage.
Nicki was worried about the push-up portion.
She was training so hard for it, she got hurt.
That makes sense.
If you can't do 50 push-ups, like most of the guys - You don't make SWAT.
- Exactly.
Male candidates are more likely to succeed, and female candidates are more likely to injure themselves trying to clear these arbitrary fitness thresholds that have nothing to do with actual SWAT work.
Take a look at the data yourself.
The other female applicants and I all talked.
It doesn't seem worth it to risk a whole career.
What if we can change that? Good luck.
In the meantime, I got to watch my own six.
I found a video from one of Tomas Hernandez's earlier robberies in the Sentinel files you got us.
Footage was grainy, but it had clear shots of his accomplices.
Ran it through facial rec, got a hit.
Now, the other two suspects are Jamie Mejia and Tomas's brother, Danny Hernandez.
Get that to Burrows.
Hopefully, RHD can dig up more intel on them.
Danny's got a record for aggravated assault, and a last known address in Highland Park.
Think all three of them are hiding out there? It's the Sentinel Guard app.
Multiple users have spotted Tomas Hernandez at an auto spa.
- Where is it? - Highland Park.
That's only a few blocks away from Danny's place.
Let's go get 'em.
This is the LAPD.
Drop your weapons and back away.
I repeat weapons down, back away.
Deacon, Street, Alonso, crowd duty.
Get the civilians back and keep 'em back.
- Move, move, move, move! - Move! - Everyone back.
- Let's go.
Come on.
I caught him Tomas Hernandez.
He's locked in the store.
You spotted him? Hell, no! I posted it first.
- It's my 100 grand! - Get out! That way, go! Go! Get out of the way! Where's the staff? 27-David, be advised.
Suspect may have hostages inside.
- We need to get eyes in there.
- Roger.
Luca, Tan, let's move.
Deac, you three hit it from the garage.
I see one suspect inside huddled in the two-three corner.
Any hostages? Can't get a clear visual.
I'll try to engage.
Cover the exit.
Tomas Hernandez, this is LAPD SWAT.
Come out with your hands above your head.
Off perimeter position to speak to a possible witness.
Ma'am, I'm Sergeant Harrelson, LAPD SWAT.
Prep the tear gas.
On my count.
I don't know what happened.
One minute, I was selling Peter a Gatorade and the next, this mob came and trapped him inside.
You said the man's name inside is Peter? He buys a yellow Gatorade with his car wash every Friday.
- Three, two, one.
- Get to safety now.
Sanchez, no! Deploy gas.
Down on your knees.
- Now! - Now! On the ground! Give me your hands behind your back.
Clear! 27-David.
This man is not our suspect.
Suspect's still in the wind.
What do you mean, "in the wind?" Tomas Hernandez was never here.
Sentinel got it wrong.
We've got unis sitting outside Danny Hernandez's house in Highland Park.
No sign of the real suspects.
That's not all.
The guy we gassed he's a third grade teacher with no priors.
Lawsuits, here we come.
Yeah, unlucky for him, he looks like Hernandez.
It's confirmation bias at work.
And if Sentinel keeps up this bounty, we'll keep getting misleading intel, more mistakes.
Working on that.
Just talked to the Sentinel Guard CEO, Vince Jones.
Tried to get him to kill the bounty.
- Any luck? - We'll see.
As Jones kindly reminded me, Sentinel's a private business, and LAPD lacks the authority to dictate terms.
Meanwhile, the LAPD tip hotline gets overwhelmed with people chasing the reward money.
I mean, they're averaging a call per minute.
With that much info coming in, we can't differentiate - between fact and fiction.
- Right.
And it's only getting worse.
Jones just doubled the bounty to 200K.
Son of a bitch.
He and his app are gonna get someone killed.
Well, luckily, Burrows and RHD made some headway.
They did a deep dive on the Hernandez brothers' financials.
Turns out Danny Hernandez has some significant debts of his own.
- He's a gambler, too? - Not unless you can bet on doctors.
Most of these are hospital bills, pharmacy bills, and regular payments to a Victoria Bayon.
What's her connection to Danny and Tomas Hernandez? Find out.
- Hey.
- Hey.
How you doing, kid? Oh, I got a little of that tear gas in my eye earlier, but I'll be fine.
I was talking about your mom.
I'm fine, really.
I know I wouldn't be fine.
Well, that's 'cause your mom's pretty great.
Hey, don't you think it would be better if you took a little time off? Maybe just drop out, take a quick trip to Mexico? I'm just offering my condolences.
I'm here because I care about you.
No, you're here because it's convenient for you.
Now, you preach all day about SWAT being a family.
- SWAT is a family.
- But you don't ignore family.
I knew I couldn't count on my mom, but I always thought that I could count on you.
But where were you? When I was laid up in a hospital bed, where were you? Or when we were all texting you and calling you for weeks on end with no response? Street, I had some pretty heavy stuff going on myself.
- But look, I am sorry - Hondo, if we're friends, real friends, you don't get to just pick and choose when you show up for us.
I've had enough people in my life do that already.
I guess I wasn't clear enough earlier.
Leave Street alone.
That is an order.
Talked to Fowler and found out why she pulled her name.
She said SWAT's physical training standards - are flawed and biased against women.
- She say anything else? Too much emphasis on explosive strength exercises, none of which actually predict performance in the field.
Hey, I-I'd like to hear more on this from Fowler, but she's not wrong.
How do we change it? Expand the qualifying categories in the PFQ.
Rather than make cadets do 60 push-ups, give them the option of bench press, barbells or something like that.
Look, I'm all for improving and expanding our training and recruitment, but let's be honest.
We can't just simply lower the bar for female officers.
I've never had to get into a push-up contest with a suspect before.
Have you? No.
I've been one of the few female SWAT officers here for years, Deac, and-and and there's something clearly broken in our recruiting process.
It's about time we fix it.
- Victoria Bayon? - They said to come in immediately.
Is something wrong? We just need to talk for a bit.
- Who's this little one? - My daughter, Sammi.
I didn't have time to call a sitter on short notice.
Mamita, take Mommy's phone and go and play for a few minutes, okay? We need to ask you about your relationship with Danny Hernandez.
We know he regularly sends you money.
- Is that against the law? - Maybe.
Danny's a suspect in a string of armed robberies, along with Jamie Mejia And Danny's brother Tomas.
- You knew about the robberies? - No.
But if Danny's hanging around Tomas Danny's my ex and Sammi's father.
We broke up last year, but he's been good to Sammi.
Lately, he started buying her things, sending money for bills.
It sounds like Danny's heart's in the right place.
Danny's selfish, always has been.
I thought he'd turned a corner, but if he's hanging around his loser brother, there's no hope for him.
Can you give me a minute? My daughter needs her insulin.
- Sammi's diabetic? - Type 1.
Danny's been helping to pay for her prescriptions and medical bills since it's so expensive.
Now that I know where the money is coming from, I won't take it.
Means I'll just have to figure out some other way of paying for it.
Hey, it turns out, Serena, the homeowner who was shot this morning, is also a diabetic and a regular customer at Leavitt's Pharmacy.
Now, according to the pharmacy's sales records, Serena bought the last of their insulin stock yesterday right before this crew hit 'em.
That's why they robbed both Serena and the pharmacy.
They were after the insulin.
That stuff's like liquid gold these days.
My buddy's a diabetic.
He said his insulin goes for 300 bucks a vial That's with insurance.
Yeah, means there's a huge demand, for it on the black market.
And plenty of profit for guys like Danny, Tomas and Jamie.
Multiple Sentinel users spotted Jamie Mejia's SUV on the move in East L.
We're gonna fall for that again? No, they're on to something this time.
Okay, license plates are a match.
All right, roll out.
Go, go, go.
Hey, you.
Out! Now.
Get out! Come on, let's go.
Get down, right there.
Don't move.
There's no insulin here.
- Where's the insulin? - I already delivered it.
- You can check the log and see.
- Where?! - On the dash.
- Grab whatever looks expensive.
This crap's got to be worth something.
I can get in lots of Let's go! Ah, yo! Pop the trunk.
Pop the trunk! Aah! Luca, Tan, stay with Hernandez.
Got it, Deac.
Pursuing suspect southbound on foot! Don't move, Jamie.
This guy's driving crazy.
Hey! Go around it! Go around.
I can't.
I can't.
We're pinned in.
22-David to Command.
Lost sight of the suspect's vehicle, headed north on Fifth Street.
Jamie Mejia isn't talking, so I hope you got something from the driver they attacked.
CEK Medical Supply is the largest distributor of insulin in the L.
Now, the van was empty when they hit it, but the driver said that Danny made off with the delivery log.
They're still after the insulin.
I had the company send us all the delivery options for the last 24 hours.
Tan? That van made almost a dozen insulin deliveries today, all over L.
Highlight the three biggest deliveries.
One insulin drop at a hospital, one in a nursing home, and one at a major shipping depot.
Yeah, it looks like the shipping depot got the largest supply.
Almost a dozen boxes.
It's also got the fewest workers and softest security.
All right, let's gear up and roll out.
Where's Hondo? I had him hang back at Victoria Bayon's house in case the bad guys pop up there.
Don't you think we could use him? Sure.
Give him a call, have him meet us there.
Hey, Sentinel Guards, I think I see those suspects everyone's been looking for here in East L.
I'm gonna follow 'em.
Stay tuned.
20-David to Command.
We're making entrance at the shipping depot.
Hondo, Street, Luca, with me.
The rest of you on Deacon.
Watch for civilians and hostages as we clear.
Let's roll.
Get out of here, leave the building.
- Look out.
- Other side.
- Sir - Let's go.
I need you to quietly exit.
Insulin has to be refrigerated.
Plans say there's cold storage in the back.
Tomas Hernandez! LAPD! 30-David, in pursuit of one suspect in the west end of the building.
Chris, Tan.
Tomas! LAPD.
Going hands on.
30-David, one suspect in custody.
I got movement! Luca, Hondo, stay with him.
Street, with me.
Sorry, folks, time for me to go.
Whoa, whoa.
Danny, drop the weapon.
Drop it.
Move one step closer and dude is dead.
Street, get up that ladder and line up a shot.
I am not risking another innocent life today.
Luca, see if you can get behind Danny.
Hondo, keep him busy while Street and Luca get into position.
I have you covered.
Danny, listen.
If you shoot him, we got to shoot you, and nobody wants that, right? Nobody has to get hurt.
Just let me take the insulin and go.
I know about your daughter.
And there are other ways to take care of her.
Legal ways.
26-David, at the next available opportunity, take the shot.
I told you, one more step 26-David.
Trying to get a visual now.
I'm trying to help you.
Hondo, stand down.
We're ending this now.
Hondo, I need you two steps to your left.
Damn it, Hondo.
Move to your left, that's an order.
I lost the shot.
Danny, you got to keep talking to me.
That's the only way we're both walking out of here alive.
Hondo, I repeat, stand down.
What's your name, son? - Uh, Mitch.
- Do you have any kids, Mitch? A daughter.
Just turned one.
Shut up! Come on, Danny, you heard that.
Mitch has a little girl at home he's trying to get to.
You know what that's like, I know you do.
You and Mitch deserve to get home to your daughters.
I know you want to see Sammi again.
I got him - in my sights.
- Danny, we don't have much time.
I need you to put that gun down, - let Mitch go.
- Take the shot, Luca.
Damn it, put the gun down! Now! Put it down.
On your knees, get on your knees.
Hands behind your head! 20-David to Command.
We're Code 4.
Final suspect in custody.
Hey, Street.
Hold up.
What's up? First, I'm sorry about your mom.
And I'm sorry about the other stuff, too.
I thought isolating myself down in Mexico would let me clear my head and work through everything I had going on and not let me be a bother to the rest of you, but that does not excuse me from leaving you all in the dark.
- Thank you.
- Yeah.
I may not have been here then, but I'm standing here right now.
So if you need to talk about anything, you want to grab a beer I think I'm just gonna head home, unwind, but I appreciate it.
- Hey.
- Hey.
Heard a rumor someone was spearheading some long overdue changes to SWAT training.
Well, I felt like it was time.
Deacon's working to modernize parts of the program as we speak.
Thinking about resubmitting your name, for consideration? Told the commander, soon as I'm healed up.
I know a few of the other women already resubmitted as well.
That's what I like to hear.
You didn't have to do that.
Sergeant Kay, it's so good to see you again.
And you are? Officer Tan.
Your app kept us real busy today.
How can we help you, Mr.
Jones? Well, our users want to see the real heroes responsible for taking down Tomas and Danny Hernandez, as well as saving our loyal Sentinel Guard user Mitch Cartwright.
Wait a second, you're filming this? Yeah, we're livestreaming to our users.
Okay, well, we're-we're not interested, but, uh, have a nice day.
Wait, you said you're livestreaming? Yeah, we got about 20,000 or so watching right now.
Well, then, we should give a shout-out to the real hero in all of this.
It was, uh, Victoria Bayon.
That's right.
I mean, it was Victoria's tips that lead us directly to the Hernandez brothers.
So I guess she's entitled to the bounty - that you so generously offered.
- Well, I think she needs to be a Sentinel Guard user to claim the bounty Mm, I don't think so.
Last I checked, anyone with information that lead to the suspects' apprehension was eligible.
Well, she'll be grateful to receive the cash reward.
Of course.
Thank you, Officers.
Thanks so much.
Quick thinking.
Well, someone's got to pay for Sammi's insulin.
Might as well be Jones, right? Hey.
Come on in.
Luca went to grab beers with Deac.
I wasn't really in the mood.
What are you feeling right now? Anger.
You name it.
I'd say that's all pretty normal.
Normal? There was nothing normal about my relationship with her.
Is it wrong that I feel a little relieved? No.
I felt a little relieved, too, when my mom died.
All her drinking, her outbursts It was like a weight lifted off my shoulders when that whole part of my life went away.
You spend all this time loving a deeply flawed person, praying and hoping they'll change And they never do.
I always dreaded this day.
Not just because she's gone, but because I knew when she died I'd really and truly be alone.
You're not alone.
What are you doing here? - What do you mean? - I can't keep doing this weird half-relationship thing we're doing.
You burrow into my head and into my heart, but I can't touch you.
I can't kiss you.
Do you realize how screwed up that is? You know we can't be together right now.
I would never ask you to compromise yourself at work.
But I can't keep doing whatever this is.
I can't.
You wanted to see me, Commander? Sergeant Sanchez claims you disobeyed a direct order in the field today.
- Is that true? - It was a judgement call from a different vantage point than the team leader.
I was trying to save lives, not end them.
A yes or no answer would make this all go faster, Hondo.
We completed the mission, arrested the suspects without incident.
No thanks to your insubordination.
I'll be the judge of that.
Maybe not this time.
What the hell is that supposed to mean? It means he's gunning for me, Commander.
I know about your orders with the commission.
He's trying to get me to quit as payback for being a whistleblower.
What the hell are you talking about? What'd you expect, Hondo? You embarrassed them and these are men that don't like being embarrassed.
What the hell is going on here? Look, I actually like all of you.
I'm glad this is all out in the open now.
Didn't feel right, working this behind your back.
You're a real son of a bitch, aren't you? Why do you even want to deal with all the stress, Hondo? All the pushback from the department.
Just go.
Leave SWAT in your rearview.
SWAT is where I belong.
Well, the brass wants you out.
You can go easy, you can go hard.
That's not your call to make.
I am not the architect of this plan.
I'm just the tool.
You know what? You're damn right, you are a tool.
You are a brown man coming after a Black man for calling out racist cops.
That don't make no kind of sense.
This has nothing to do with race.
- No? What's it about, then? - You are a cop who went outside the chain of command.
Now they're gonna use you to make an example for everyone to witness.
Talking of chain of command, it says "Commander Hicks" on that door.
Not "Sanchez.
" Stay in your lane.
If it wasn't me, they would just send somebody else.
They can send you and a dozen more yes-man kiss-ass sellouts just like you, and I will keep doing my job.
And I'll just keep writing you up for insubordination.
I won't sign off on that.
I don't think that's gonna matter much to the higher-ups.
See, 'cause all it's gonna take is one minor screwup to give the commission what it wants to send you packing.
So have some dignity and just walk away first.
For your own good.
Until then, I expect you to follow every order I give you.
To the letter.
