Jim pulls off a sting with Hondo in on it. He is officially working undercover and is believable. He meets up with Hondo and Esprit at a motel to tell them about Nolan, their latest target, a drug supplier, who he has befriended. SWAT plans to find out how they are moving the drugs. Jim tells Hondo it’s been tough, he can’t answer any texts from his friends and family. He needs to help his foster brother Nate though, who is caught up in this whole thing.

Hondo and Esprit finally decide to tell the rest of the team about Jim’s undercover work and their plan to take down the drug dealers. SWAT suits up and heads to one of the known drug houses to find the heroin. They dress up like gang bangers and not cops.

Jim gets word about a big meeting with Nolan and a new supplier. He tells Hondo and the others. They tell him they are going to get back-up for him. Jim heads back to see Nolan pretend he has intel on the police set to bust them. Jim gets on Nolan’s good side. He learns that a shipment of drugs is coming in tonight. He informs Hondo.

Hondo tells the team. He senses the rest of the team are angry. They share that they are mad that they were kept in the dark for 2 weeks about Jim. He explains that it was for safety.

Jim heads to see Nate and tells him to get out of town. He cannot tell him why he just needs him to trust. Nate listens and packs.

The team stays out of sight at the location where the drugs are coming in. They watch Nolan and Jim interact from a distance but they cannot move in yet. They get the signal from Jim and bust them. They don’t find any drugs though.

The next day, they all try to find a way to find drugs. They did something tricky. Esprit welcomes Jim back. Jim heads to talk to Chris, who tells him she was hurt and worried. He wants to go back to the way things were.

Hondo and Deacon head back to the scene of the drug bust. They figure out that Nolan and his supplier walked away with the drugs, after all, using cardboard boxes. They need to move fast. Those boxes are gone and so aren’t the men.

Jim heads to check on Nate and finds him dead. He calls the team. They arrive. It looks like Nate left papers of Nolan’s behind but he doesn’t know what they mean. Jim excuses himself for a minute and then disappears to go after Nolan.

Hondo tracks down Jim. He is waiting outside of a house that Nolan is inside of. He hasn’t gone in yet. He is thinking about what to do and why Nate didn’t listen to him. Hondo tells him they have video footage putting Nate’s murder on Nolan. He is going down. Meanwhile, the team has located the factory where Nolan’s supplier is working to extract the heroin from the cardboard boxes. They make their way in and bust the washers and Nolan’s supplier.

Back at headquarters, the team celebrates and forgives one another for the secrecy of Jim’s mission.
