Spoilers for ‘SEAL Team’ Season 4 Episode 3
Jason Hayes (David Boreanaz) is not Bravo One anymore but can he stay away for too long? With brotherly banter and heartwarming camaraderie, ‘SEAL Team’ snuck a sweet spot into hearts in its first half. Who knew it would end with such a rude shock? It was hard to recognize Jason at first. Clean shaven and clear-headed, he looked much at ease than before. He may now working with ECHO Team now but he belongs to Bravo in his heart. Perhaps, that's why he started ignoring his old mates.
Sonny Quinn (AJ Buckley) felt Jason missed the clan and didn't want to show his real feelings. “It's not the same without Jace anymore,” Sonny said. But, Clay Spenser (Max Thieriot) and Ray Perry (Neil Brown Jr) discarded his theory saying he has been the leader for a long time and he now needs to rest. Ray told Sonny, “You are refusing to move on without him.” Later, for Ray's welcome party, Jason joined the team and have a lovely little get together. Things got heated when the three started discussing Clay's letter controversy. When Sonny found out, he felt it was selfish on Ray's part that he let Clay take the blame to not let go of his promotion.
As the Warrant Officer, Ray got his first mission to go to Tunisia where a terrorist, Ansar Al-Masar, was running amok and the CIA agent on the case was Olivia Green. But just before leaving, there was a huge fight among the four SEALs.
Sonny clearly didn't take the fact well that Ray wrote the letter and Clay took the fall for it. He had already given up STA-21 and told Sonny that Captain Lindell (Jamie McShane) wasn't ready to listen. Roaring with anger, Sonny went and confronted Ray and even hinted at how he was selfish for letting Clay take the blame. Even though Clay said it was his decision, Sonny told Ray that he detonated the team with one foot out the door. Ray didn't have time for the fight and had to catch a flight to Tunisia. Sonny also yelled at Jason for letting go of his team at a crucial time — for “quitting” on his brothers. Was Sonny's anger over Clay leaving Bravo justified?
Too blow off steam, Sonny went for drinks with Lisa Davis (Toni Trucks) — who had earned a promotion badge. As the episode came to a close, Jason met Natalie Pierce (Emily Swallow) and asked her, “Do you want to grab lunch later?” The two share a conversation about Jason's step. Are the two getting back together? We hope not, but only time will tell what really happens.
The hour-long drama ended with a major shocker. Ray went to Tunisia and did a good job in handling the local ambassador. As they sat in a second-floor cafe, an explosion hit that side of the building and blew them off. There was no sign of Ray now and no one knew if he was safe. In a preview for the next episode, we find out that Ray is missing. That shocking twist will definitely change a lot of hearts. Will Sonny feel sorry for being mad at him and will Jason come back? A 22-second promo begins with: “We have a missing SEAL. All hands on deck.” A somber tune sends hearts racing as Sonny says, “This can't be the way he goes down. Not right, not like this.” Another voice speaks, “We got a whole taskforce spending up. We'll catch up to him.” Amid a montage of scenes that show the explosion, Jason tells Captain Lindell (Jamie McShane): “I want back in the fight.”
