20-Squad is again, and it feels so good.

On S.W.A.T. Season 6 Episode 1, Hondo, Deacon, and Tan are in Bangkok and clearly, issues do not go fairly as deliberate when Hondo stumbles upon a heroin operation along with his outdated navy buddy, Joe.

With visitor star Sean Maguire, the CBS collection is beginning its season robust with loads of motion and feelings.

That is the second time {that a} season on S.W.A.T. has begun in a special nation and the third total episode arc that has performed that, to not point out that we received an elephant within the background in a single scene, which can or could not have been deliberate.

You by no means know simply what to anticipate when an episode of a collection movies in a very totally different setting, however I’ve to say that it is so good when it occurs on occasion.

We aren’t confined to simply HQ and totally different places in and round Los Angeles.

We’re launched to totally different characters, who, sure, are solely on the collection for an episode or two on the most however nonetheless deliver a lot to the desk.

It additionally reveals that, clearly, there are different badass cops in different nations, and seeing how totally different or not so totally different they do issues is so fascinating.

I would like you all again right here in a single piece.


Since Hondo and the blokes are staying in Thailand via S.W.A.T. Season 6 Episode 2, we must always see them group up with the Thai S.W.A.T. group once more.

Whereas it is comprehensible why they can not have all the solid movie outdoors the States, it will be good to see the others depart HQ each occasionally.

Since Luca spent a substantial period of time in Germany, Road undoubtedly deserves a trip in spite of everything that he is been via.

In the meantime, I really like how shortly Hicks knew that Hondo would need to spend extra time in Thailand and already authorised it within the papers earlier than he even known as.

It simply reveals how effectively he is aware of 20-Squad, even when it means they will not be again residence anytime quickly.

However I’m excited to see what the house group will probably be doing with half the squad gone; they’ve already confirmed they’ll maintain their very own.

Talking of holding your personal, Lina Esco and Chris’s absence has already been wildly felt.

From Deacon’s point out of how nice of a feminine S.W.A.T. officer she was to the particular void felt round HQ with out her.

Nonetheless, Chris’ departure left an open spot on the group and who to take it however one other feminine. Followers will bear in mind S.W.A.T. Academy recruit Zoe Powell from S.W.A.T. Season 5, and he or she has shortly jumped into motion.

Clearly, nobody can ever remotely change Chris or Lina Esco, However Anna Enger Ritch’s Powell is a welcome addition to 20-Squad as 28-David.

Massive mistake. And for the file, an inch can be beneficiant.


We already received to see her a bit of bit final season, and he or she was so nice.

I really like that she’s a part of 20-Squad as a result of she is already becoming in. I am excited to see what storylines she will get and the way she is going to proceed inspiring younger females.

With the departure of Lina Esco, another person received promoted to collection common: Rochelle Aytes! Being within the opening sequence was a pleasing shock, and the probabilities are infinite for what her storylines will probably be.

Her chemistry with Shemar Moore is magical, and that was confirmed throughout their first spherical of being on-screen lovers in Legal Minds.

You are right here now. That is all that issues.


I’ve beloved Nichelle from the get-go, and it is clear that she loves Hondo.

We have now seen how exhausting it’s being the numerous different of a police officer via Annie and a bit of little bit of Bonnie. So getting one other perspective of that whereas Nichelle is pregnant and he or she and Hondo are determining their future will certainly be one thing to look ahead to because the season progresses.

We additionally received a bit of extra data on Hondo and Nichelle’s future, however Hondo talked about that he and Nichelle weren’t precisely within the thoughts to get married proper now.

They’re simply specializing in the infant, however may they be listening to wedding ceremony bells sooner or later?

Hondo has loads on his plate, so it would not be stunning if the 2 of them do not take the following step simply but.

However the truth that they’ve been speaking about it implies that they’ve been speaking about it.

Maybe as soon as Child Hondo is right here, issues will change.

In fact, it is no shock that the primary scene of the season is speedy motion.

Although this one is a bit of totally different, because it opens in the course of the climax with Hondo and Joe already taken.

This makes you marvel simply what occurred between them and who these individuals are.

It ain’t over ’til it is over.


However then, when it goes again to earlier than they had been taken, the story begins to construct up, and you can also make extra connections.

Sean Maguire performs Hondo’s navy buddy, Joe, and I did not know the way a lot I’d love this duo.

This complete storyline with Joe makes me want that we might get extra backstory of Hondo’s navy previous.

Though I really like the little bits and items of background we get on occasion, I’d like to spend a whole episode doing simply that.

Too many individuals considering you are the dangerous man.


It is clear that whereas Joe and Hondo could not discuss as a lot, they instantly catch up like outdated mates as if no time has handed.

Hopefully, this may not be the final time we see Joe, regardless of him being in Thailand, and he and Hondo will work once more quickly. Possibly in Los Angeles subsequent time.

General, I beloved this episode.

Powell’s dynamic with the group is already a fantastic one, and I am so excited to see what occurs, as she’s already becoming in with them.

There’s nothing we are able to do about that proper now.


With yet another episode set in Thailand and Hondo looking for the child that helped him and Joe, issues will solely get way more intense.

So, Fanatics, what did you consider the S.W.A.T. Season 6 premiere? Had been you hoping for extra, or did the motion fulfill you?
