'SEAL Team' Season 3 Episode 17 Preview: Who is Sonny's childhood friend, Hannah, in 'Drawdown'?
While Rachel Boston will enter Sonny's life as his childhood friend Hannah, John Savage will play the role of his father, Emmet
With the new twists and turns in 'SEAL Team', the Bravo Team seems to be headed on a new path. While the rest of the team begins their deployment in Afghanistan, Sonny Quinn (AJ Buckley) has been sent to Texas for his disciplinary training.
In a new promo, Mandy Ellis (Jessica Paré) says, "Peace with the tavern. I never thought I'd see the day." Even Lisa Davis (Toni Trucks) announces that the peace process is "about to break". Moreover, Jason Hayes (David Boreanaz) confirms the ensuing battle: "We're still in the war zone." There seems to be danger around every corner for the team and that puts a lot of pressure on each member.
The official summary reads: "Bravo Team begins their deployment in Afghanistan during peace negotiations; Sonny reports to an Air Force base in Texas to serve his disciplinary training action and gets reacquainted with Hannah, a childhood friend."
Going by the summary, there seem to be a few fresh faces in the new episode. While Rachel Boston will enter Sonny's life as his childhood friend, Hannah, John Savage will play the role of his father, Emmet. In an interview with TV Insider earlier, Buckley said, "About halfway through the season, you'll meet someone along the way that makes things very complicated and very interesting."
Moreover, he also teased, "Starting around Episode 16 or so, there's some stuff with Sonny going back to Texas and meeting people from his past." Talking about his character, he said, "He's evolving where he has for the first time entertained the thought of being in a relationship outside of the team. For him, the team's brotherhood he's always put first, and he's never allowed himself to be vulnerable to anyone. This is a new side of him that as much as he's fighting it, he can't deny how he feels. He's gotta face it."
As the new episode rolls out next Wednesday, April 1, on CBS, it may shed light as to how his childhood friend will influence his life.
