In the S.W.A.T. episode “Inheritance”, the team tries to stop a band of criminals re-enacting the crimes of the infamous Symbionese Liberation Army (SLA) from the 1970s. The criminals are robbing banks with their own 21st century version of Patty Hearst, a young woman named Lauren Tucker (Sofia Vassilieva, Medium), daughter of one of the richest men in the world. Her kidnappers are demanding $50 million. The high-profile case turns Los Angeles into a battle zone which of course involves Mayor Barrett.
Mayor Barrett is portrayed by Bess Armstrong. She’s known for her roles on The Arrangement (Iris), Switched at Birth (Professor Marillo), House of Lies (Julianne Hotschragar), One Tree Hill (Lydia James), My So-Called Life (Patty Chase), Married People (Elizabeth Meyers), and in the films Nothing in Common opposite Tom Hanks (Donna Martin), High Road to China opposite Tom Selleck, John Waters’ Pecker (Dr. Klompus), and Jaws 3-D (Dr. Kay Morgan), among others. S.W.A.T. airs Thursdays at 10 pm on CBS, right after Murphy Brown. [Watch It Again: Stream any CBS show through Amazon Prime or CBS ALL-ACCESS. Both options offer free trials.]

With Tom Selleck…
Are you a fan of High Road to China?
This 1983 film set in the 1920s starred Tom Selleck in his first major role, playing a hard-drinking biplane pilot hired by heiress Eve “Evie” Tozer (played by Bess Armstrong) to find her missing father. #HighRoadToChina35 #ThrowbackThursday pic.twitter.com/V1kCTHdxbt
