Shemar Moore’s Hondo will be grieving in today’s episode of “S.W.A.T.”
Entertainment Tonight shared a sneak peek of CBS’ “S.W.A.T.” episode 15, titled “Crews.” In the clip, Hondo becomes emotional after his friend, Craig, is killed while trying to seek out information about a robbery crew.
Hondo talks with his fellow S.W.A.T. member Deacon (Jay Harrington) and recalls his fond memories of Craig. Hondo shows his vulnerability as he shares how they met and eventually become friends.
“I just keep wondering what I could’ve done different for Craig,” says Hondo, who has known his late friend since his patrol days.
Hondo says he answered a robbery call, and there he met Craig, whom he described as a “funny dude.”
“When I finished my report, he just kept apologizing for all the paperwork I was going to have to do on account of him getting ripped off,” Hondo recalls with a chuckle.
“We’re going to get the guys that did this,” Deacon says to comfort Hondo.
The latter smiles, praising Craig as a “hustler.” “He was always just scraping by,” he adds.
