S.W.A.T. Season 6 Episode 3 Assessment: Woah Black Betty
Black Betty has been a member of S.W.A.T. perpetually, so what occurs when she’s taken?
On S.W.A.T. Season 6 Episode 3, Black Betty, S.W.A.T.’s armored car, is taken so it may be utilized in a possible terrorist assault.
The squad groups up with FBI Agent Vasquez, who was denied a spot on S.W.A.T. again within the day, to attempt to cease all of it from occurring, and it is quite a bit.
I am at all times shocked at myself for the way emotional or connected I can develop into to inanimate objects, and Black Betty is certainly a kind of circumstances.
S.W.A.T.’s armored car is a mainstay on this collection, and I could not think about the present with out the crew pulling as much as a case together with her.
So if you base an episode throughout mentioned car being taken, it is undoubtedly one for the books.
And this episode actually shines a highlight on how a lot this car means to the crew, particularly Luca.
Look, if I am trustworthy, with Betty gone, I am unsure what to do.
Luca has been driving Black Betty for what looks like perpetually, and admittedly, she’s his child.
Even Tan admitted that when Luca was in Germany, and he was driving Betty, Luca would name continuously to investigate cross-check him. Solely Luca wasn’t frightened about Tan. He was frightened about Betty.
Clearly, there are a variety of reveals and flicks which have a really noticeable automotive, and it is what makes the present. For S.W.A.T., it is Betty.
It is undoubtedly a distinct storyline, but it surely actually works nicely.
You would not anticipate something to occur to Black Betty since she is an armored car, however as a result of she is an armored car, it is precisely why one thing would occur to her.
After which Luca blaming himself was heartbreaking to listen to, although we all know that it wasn’t his fault.
Betty is gone. We misplaced her.
We additionally discover out the story behind his taking such an curiosity in driving Betty, and we study slightly extra about his backstory and what it is like for him to be in a household of S.W.A.T. officers.
Listening to his reasoning is smart, and it undoubtedly harm to see him blame himself for one thing that was completely out of his management.
This episode additionally introduced in somebody from Hondo’s previous, and we bought to listen to extra about his time earlier than S.W.A.T., which was additionally one thing actually fascinating.
In the meantime, on prime of all of this, Hondo and Nichelle needed to cope with their gender reveal get together, and we lastly bought the gender.
Though it was speculated to be a standard cake, due to Betty being stolen, Deacon needed to give you a distinct methodology, which nonetheless labored superbly. And actually, it matches for 20-Squad.
Betty is safe.
Within the midst of the whole lot that went down with Black Betty, it was so good to get one thing gentle all through the episode.
And never solely Betty had a cheerful ending, however Hondo and Nichelle did, too.
In fact, I’ve to speak concerning the precise gender reveal.
Hondo and Nichelle are having a child lady, and I could not be happier for them!
Nichelle: You are gonna have slightly child daughter. How does that make you are feeling?
Hondo: I do not know. Uh… overwhelmed. I do know that I really like you a lot.
Seeing Hondo as a #GirlDad might be one thing to stay up for, and I simply know he’s going to guard that little lady like his life is determined by it.
I am additionally excited to see him and Nichelle as mother and father after the whole lot they have been via to get up to now.
There’ll most likely be some fascinating storylines revolving round Hondo and the way harmful S.W.A.T. is now that he is virtually a dad, and whereas it’ll be laborious to observe, it’ll be obligatory.
I additionally very a lot loved Road and Deacon’s dynamic within the episode.
We do not normally get scenes with simply the 2 of them, and seeing them cope with the gender reveal was hilarious.
Between the middle, shedding the envelope, and discovering out the gender, they have been undoubtedly the extra comedic components of this episode.
All that issues is that Hondo and Nichelle are shocked.
And one other factor to say: we’re three episodes in, and though we have now gotten extra Chris mentions, we nonetheless do not know what’s been happening together with her.
I might like it if Road up to date the crew about her and the way their relationship goes, however one can solely hope.
One other factor that I really like about this episode is that it gave us delicate data on two characters’ backstories: Hondo and Luca.
Reiterating what I mentioned for S.W.A.T. Season 6 Episode 1, I might like it if we may get extra data on everybody’s previous.
We bought to study a bit about Hondo’s time within the Hollywood Division when he was a patrol cop, and we bought to study what Luca actually feels about being in his dad and his grandfather’s shadows.
I might simply like it if the collection was capable of focus extra on the backstories for various minutes in an episode.
But it surely’s additionally enjoyable studying new tidbits concerning the characters each from time to time.
Going off of Hondo’s backstory, we bought to fulfill Agent Vasquez of the FBI, performed by Jessica Camacho.
She was such an ideal character and actually confirmed how S.W.A.T. was like earlier than it actually began accepting females, and like Road mentioned, earlier than Chris broke these boundaries.
She bought closure from Hicks, she bought closure from Hondo, and I actually hope this is not the final we see of her.
If I had an opportunity to do it once more, I might wish to imagine I might do it in a different way.
Regardless that it is unlikely, I actually hope that this is not the final time we see Vasquez on the present.
She could have carried out issues slightly in a different way to get Betty again, however on the finish, they have been capable of get her again, and is not that each one that issues?
Her dynamic with Hondo would even be fascinating to get extra of and listen to a few of these patrol tales.
Once more, in the event that they have been to dig into Hondo’s backstory, that may even be a good time to carry her in.
But it surely’s at all times laborious to inform the place a storyline will go, however since she and Hondo ended on an excellent word, it is undoubtedly potential.
At the very least issues are higher now between them than earlier than.
So, now that Hondo and Nichelle predict slightly lady, may we anticipate some scenes of them adorning the nursery and shopping for some cute child garments? Possibly Deacon will give him some tips on elevating a daughter since he undoubtedly is aware of a factor or two about it.
Will Luca be extra protecting over Black Betty transferring ahead? Will he open up extra about his dad and grandfather’s instances on S.W.A.T.? Will we ever get extra concrete backstories on 20-Squad?
