John D. Cort waltzes back into town in time to save Eddie from a bunch of "vatos." But instead of sending the kids off the jail, Eddie and Mitch get them enrolled in the L.A. County Lifeguards' W.A.T.E.R. Program which introduces disadvantaged youths to beach activities like windsurfing. Unfortunately, one of the kids, Memo, tries to evade joining the program. Does it have anything to do with his father (guest star Danny Trejo)? Will Eddie be able to get through to them both? Will Cort steal the show from the regular Baywatch cast?
Justin professes his love for actor John Allen Nelson while Erik eventually explains his character, John D. Cort. Both recall when people dressed like the "vatos" in this week's episode. Justin glimpses a better version of Baywatch. The fight between Nelson and Trejo ends up a highlight even if Eddie (star Billy Warlock) is meant to be the lead character. A theory forms around David Hasselhoff's absence from the episode. Justin critiques the presentation of CPR chest compressions on television, and Erik finds a new thesis project.
