Recapitulating Episode 1
The episode began with solving the cliff-hanger of the previous season, where we witnessed West and Lopez’s kidnap. After a thorough search and looking through the CCTV cameras, West was announced dead, but there was a faint hope of Lopez being alive. The season two final episode shed light on La Fierra’s team responsible for kidnapping Lopez and rescuing Fierra. According to Wes’ theory, Fierra is using the skyway to transport Lopez to her compound.
Wes was desperate to find the place where the compound was situated, and he was successful in doing so. Sergeant Grey warned the team about the casualties that might come face-to-face once they reached the location. The search team had to figure out a way to rescue their colleague and friend.
Wes decided to take all necessary actions on his own and decided to strike a deal with Fierra. Even though Fierra initially agreed, but he had hidden plans of killing Wes. The episode ended with Nolan’s timely appearance and successfully saving Wes’ life. The team safely made it to the helicopter. In a short time, a lapse of three months, Wes and his wife had a baby and were named Jackson after Officer West.

The second episode of the fourth season, named ‘Five Minutes’, is all set to release on 3 October 2021. The episode is expected to see a thief, who is famous for wrong reasons, and Officer Nolan and Chen are alerted about his arrival.
