The illegal practice known as swatting – calling in a false report to send police officers to alleged crime scenes – comes into play in the series reboot's first-season finale, appropriately titled "Hoax." Such a call has an impact on the search by Hondo's (Shemar Moore) team for a bomb-deploying white supremacy group. Street's (Alex Russell) career is threatened because of his recently paroled mother (guest star Sherilyn Fenn). Guest star Obba Babatunde returns as Hondo's father. Stephanie Sigman and Jay Harrington also star.
