S.W.A.T. Season 6 Episode 22: The sixth season of the thrilling CBS series ‘S.W.A.T.’ is drawing to a dramatic close. This season brought us a whirlwind of emotions, from Hondo’s team losing control and bouncing back, Sanchez and Deacon venturing into the private security business, to explosive action sequences featuring the Special Weapons and Tactics team. As we prepare for the final act, let’s reminisce about the roller coaster journey we’ve been on this season and look forward to what the season finale, titled ‘Legacy,’ promises to offer.
Reflections: Recapping the Penultimate Episode
The season’s second-to-last episode gave us a significant shift in the power dynamics of the OpSec game. We saw Sanchez starting his private contractor security firm, directly rivaling Deacon’s company. Amidst this intense competition, the DEA/SWAT anti-gang operation takes center stage, leading to the capture of the notorious gang leader, Shorty Guzman.
This episode brought us closer to the struggle of Muriel and her brother, two gang members striving to escape their dangerous past for a fresh start in the heart of Midwestern USA. However, their dreams are shattered when their gang becomes the target of a brutal police crackdown. This episode highlighted the stark difference in handling crimes at the federal level by the DEA and local cops, sparking a thought-provoking dialogue on crime resolution strategies.
The War on Drugs: A Cat and Mouse Game
The gang’s illicit activities include a partnership with a dangerous Mexican cartel dealing with heroin. However, with a shift in power dynamics both in Mexico and Los Angeles, the cops spot a weakness and decide to dismantle the crime ring. The DEA’s harsh tactics drive a drug dealer to Mexico, resulting in catastrophic consequences for his family when the cartel gets a whiff of the police. This episode skillfully unfolds a tense game between the DEA, the LAPD, and the implications of the war on drugs on local communities.
The Season Finale: Legacy (Episode 22)
The season finale of S.W.A.T. Season 6, titled ‘Legacy,’ is scheduled to premiere on CBS on Friday, 19 May 2023, at 20:00 hrs Eastern Time in the United States. This anticipated episode will wrap up the current season’s storylines and probably leave viewers on the edge of their seats with cliffhangers for the already greenlit seventh season, which, unfortunately, will also be the show’s final run.
S.W.A.T. fans worldwide can tune in to the finale at the respective time slots for their regions, with each gripping episode lasting around 45 minutes.
