'SEAL Team' Season 3 Episode 4 review: Sonny Quinn and Lisa Davis split up while the team finds a new Bravo member
After walking on eggshells in the season so far, the gods of 'SEAL Team' seem to have decided to nip this love story in the bud with Davis realizing that the lying and sneaking around just wasn't working out
The review contains spoilers from 'SEAL Team' Season 3 Episode 4 — 'The Strength of the Wolf'.
Sonny (AJ Buckley) and Lisa Davis (Toni Trucks) shippers may have a long wait ahead of them as it looks like the love won't completely blossom between the two—at least for now.
After walking on eggshells in the season so far, the gods of 'SEAL Team' seem to have decided to nip this love story in the bud with Davis realizing that the lying and sneaking around just wasn't working out. When all is said and done, Davis meets Sonny and decides that the two are living a lie and it just isn't working out. Heartbroken, Sonny drives away, leaving her out in the cold.
This love story wasn't destined to be easy but for it to be cut this short was definitely unexpected. As far as the ripple effect goes, it's quite possible that Sonny and Davis' friendship will also be affected since, clearly, Sonny didn't take it as amicably as Davis would have liked. However, there's also a possibility that this isn't the end.
The answer is simple—they're best friends. They care about each other too much and it may just be an ever lingering relationship between the two. They obviously need to work together well since so many lives are at stake. But with whatever just happened, it'll be hard for sure.
There is also a new addition to the crew that could potentially be very important this season. Out of all the candidates that interview with the Bravo team, a soldier named Vic Lopez makes the cut while Ray Perry (Neil Brown Jr.) decides to stay back with the team. This episode plays a lot with Lopez's backstory and his struggles with his father and his will to be a team player—something that hints towards this character getting ample scope to grow and unfold as the season progresses. But then again, this could just be a set up for some conflict since his entry into the team has made Clay Spenser (Max Thieriot) a little mad with Jason.
This episode sees the Bravo team zoom to rescue kidnapped Americans on a ship that will enter Chinese waters if they aren't careful and compromise the op. The repeated dry practice runs fail miserably putting the already stressed out Jason Haynes (David Boreanaz) on edge. He decides that the team will not leave until they get it right and, until the last minute, they keep coming back empty-handed.
Amid complications of locating the ship and practice sessions that just don't seem to work, the team finds that they have to put their all-consuming personal battles aside and focus on the job at hand. And that's probably the best thing about these characters—when the time comes, they're ready to kick down the door and do their jobs well, no matter the cost or consequences. The plan goes smoothly and the hostages are rescued.
