The S.W.A.T. writers have been doing an excellent job of letting us get to know the characters deeper each week, and last week we learned some interesting details about Street. Street’s mom is in jail for killing his father, but it was because his father was abusive and she wanted to protect him. However, his mother is definitely no saint, seeing as she uses emotional blackmail over Street to get him to do things for her. She convinced him to pay a visit to a guy on the outside who she claimed was abusive toward his supposed girlfriend. She wanted Street to warn the guy to stay away. It didn’t go well and ended with Street getting arrested for fighting. Hondo came and got it sorted out, but he wasn’t pleased.

Later Hondo got some information about Street’s mom and went to the jail to visit her. It turned out he learned that the guy wasn’t her friend’s boyfriend but the guy who helps supply her with contraband she can then sell in prison, and he was working more with the supposed girlfriend than Street’s mom. Hondo warned her that Street wouldn’t be coming to visit her for a while because she needed to stop manipulating her son. I was very happy to see Hondo stand up for Street, and I’m interested to see what happens next.

On tonight’s episode, “Radical,” after a domestic bomber dies in a Highland Park explosion, the SWAT team races to find the man’s partner before more devices detonate. Also, Hondo reaches out to Buck, his former team leader, when he worries he is isolating himself after his recent firing.

To find out if the team can find the partner before another bomb goes off, tune in to CBS at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching Young Sheldon and Beat Bobby Flay.

On last week’s Arrow, we completed a two-episode arc that told the tale of Slade “Deathstroke” Wilson’s legacy. He was on the trail of his son the prior week and found him amidst a terrorist organization called the Jackals, whom Slade once ran with. We almost forgot that Oliver was there before he returned to the fold of the episode. Slade was saved from patricidal execution only by joining the gang and going on their next op, but not before informing Oliver of a way he might sabotage the effort.

Meanwhile, Team Arrow went after the new drug lord on the rise, a super rad guest appearance by Kurt Acevedo (12 Monkeys, Oz, Band of Brothers), and we saw once again that Diggle still had shaky nerves. He stalled out in the clutch like he had a half dozen times already this season. Slade’s son, Joe, captured Oliver. We soon saw that the “five years ago” trope that was the life breath of this show Felicity Smoak (that somehow, mistakenly, got branded poorly about her flaky archer bf) is gonna get forced into every couple installments now that we’re in year six – this time in memories of Deathstroke & Shadow.

John came clean to the team about his addiction to a steroid that Dragon was selling to calm his tremors. They forgave him, and Curtis agreed to help him. So things will hopefully get better soon. But not before all hell breaks loose in a 4-show crossover next week!!

On tonight’s episode, “Thanksgiving,” Oliver celebrates Thanksgiving with his family, but the happy moment is interrupted. Meanwhile, Black Siren returns to wreak havoc on the holiday.

Check out Oliver & family’s Thanksgiving tonight on The CW at 9/8c.

Happy Turkey Day, everyone. Go watch some Concussion Ball with your family and try to not talk about poltiics!
