SWAT season 2 episode 11 is coming onto CBS on Thursday, January 3, and it is already clear that this is a different episode than most. “School” is going to be a painful story for every single character, both in terms of where the two is in the present and also some of what they’ve went through in the past with a school shooting. There’s no denying that this is an incredibly-difficult subject to tackle on network television — it’s something that has caused so much devastation all over the world.
So why take it on? A lot of that may be due to the nature of the job for some of these characters. We are, after all, talking here about an issue that many SWAT team members in the country have been forced to take on, as difficult as it may be. Students are some of the most vulnerable people in the world and they need heroes in the form of a SWAT team more than anyone when a crisis happens. We imagine that Hondo and the team recognize that and anytime that there is a threat at a school, they spring into action even more than usual. There’s another gear here just because the potential for devastation is so high.
Yet, in the end it is clear from a CBS front that this is not the easiest subject matter to tackle, which is why there is going to be a public-service announcement planned for the end of the episode.
To get a little bit more news as to what’s coming, we suggest that you take a look at the SWAT season 2 episode 11 synopsis at the bottom of this article:
“School” – The SWAT team faces difficult reminders of a past school shooting when they receive a warning that a copycat plans to re-enact the crime. As the team races to stop the new threat, they flash back to the day of the tense first mission, on S.W.A.T., Thursday, Jan. 3 (10:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. Cast members Shemar Moore, Alex Russell, Jay Harrington and Lina Esco appear in a public service announcement at the end of the episode.
There are some episodes of this show where we do see some more lighthearted storylines and subplots, but in all honesty it’s hard to imagine a lot of those manifesting themselves throughout this hour because of the very specific thing that the cast is taking on. This is different than almost any other crisis and we have a feeling that it is going to be treated as such.
