Recap of S.W.A.T. Season 5 Episode 1
Hondo leaves town in the opening episode of Season 5, dubbed “Vagabundo,” because of how things turn out when he speaks out against racism in the L.A.P.D.
This strategy backfires, and his superiors are forced to fire him. Hondo has finally arrived in Mexico. Trouble follows him there as well, as he witnesses a white guy threatening to seize land belonging to Delfina Reyes.
Hondo attempts to keep her away from the man, but difficulties reappear during a trip to the market.
Hondo and Delfina come across AJ Novak, the man who wants to take over her land. To make matters worse, his new right-hand man turns out to be Gabriel, Delfina’s ex-fiancé.
Hondo defeats the men and then conducts a background check on Novak. He turns out to be immensely wealthy, having even paid off the local cops.
Hondo is quickly apprehended and told to meet Novak in exchange for being let go. Novak’s father is wanted in Ireland and other Eastern European nations, which is why his son is attempting to flee to Mexico.
Novak reveals everything, including the proposal of an agreement between him and Delfina, at the meeting that follows the “freedom” bargain, presented to Hondo.
Hondo agrees because he has exhausted all other chances for defeating him. However, he understands that the property is built on top of silver mines, which is why Novak’s father had Delfina’s father killed years ago.
Novak kidnaps Delfina and offers to buy the farm for one peso in the end.
