Every ‘SEAL Team’ episode leaves a million questions on fans' minds and the recent episode ‘Reckoning’ was no different. As the episode began, Ray Perry (Neil Brown Jr) was going through PTSD and hoped work would get his mind off the trauma from the torture. 

The episode then brought all focus to Raqqa Jacques (Philip Shabaz) — an alias for Yassine Kassan — the man who tortured Ray. As the episode progressed, Ray found Jacques and shot him dead. Sonny Quinn (AJ Buckley) got hit in the ambush and had to be rushed back to the plane. However, the final scene trumped everything else and now fans seem to be bogged down by the cliffhanger. Here's what really happened in the episode.

As Ray continues to lead the mission in Syria, the stakes grow higher when members of the Bravo team learn the truth about their target. In one scene, Ray holds the gun onto Jacques's face as Jason Hayes's voice echoes in his ears. “This is your one chance for justice... What he did to you, there's only one way past it.” Ray asks him, “You mean vengeance?” Jason replies without flinching, “Yes I do.”

As the episode comes to a close, Jason is arrested. Going by all the theories, he has been charged with murder. But whose and why? These are questions everyone wants answers to. 

After the cliffhanger, fans are wondering why Jason was taken into custody. “Decisions Jason. Shouldn’t have led the team on that second mission,” one fan said and another posted, “WTF?!? NCIS just came and arrested Jason?!? @SEALTeamWriters what level of torture have you unleashed on us @SEALTeamCBS fans now?!!” A third chimed in, “HOLY SHIT! JASON WAS JUST ARRESTED! I HAVE SO MANY QUESTIONS! WHO TURNED HIM IN AND WHAT DID HE DO WRONG?”
