Spoilers for 'SEAL Team' Season 5 Episode 2' Trust, But Verify: Part 2'

Season 5 'SEAL Team' saw Bravo kick back into action without having a second to breathe. Episode 2, 'Trust, But Verify: Part 2', picks up where Episode 1 left all, allowing fans to breathe after that intense cliffhanger. Deployed to North Korea on a covert mission to extract a weapons dealer, their mission soon takes a turn for the worse.

In Episode 1, Jason Hayes (David Boreanaz), Clay Spenser (Max Thieriot), Brock Reynolds (Justin Melnick) and Sonny Quinn (AJ Buckley) are cornered in the control room, as North Korean soldiers swiftly approach. The question is, will they all be able to carry out this mission successfully? And more importantly, will they be able to make it out alive?


'SEAL Team' Season 5 Episode 1 Review: Bravo tries to avert WWIII in gripping opener

'SEAL Team' Season 5: Fans dub Episode 1 a 'scary movie' as Bravo goes to North Korea
In Episode 2, despite their informant being captured, Bravo decides to go ahead with the mission. While everything seems to be working against them, they manage to make it through and barely escape. However, right before they get on a submarine ready to leave North Korea, Jason realizes that the probe he used to check the minefield they just crossed was left behind. He has no option but to retrieve it because if it is found, it could result in catastrophe.

He and Clay barely manage to collect the probe as North Korean soldiers patrol just a few feet away. Jason's memory issues are now glaringly obvious as Clay even points it out to him. But for now, the rest of the team hasn't quite caught on. Jason, too, is increasingly aware of his memory loss and tries a simple test to see how bad it is on returning from his mission. He observes the items in his fridge and tries to list them down. Even though there are barely six items, he can only seem to remember half of them, no matter how hard he tries. This leads to the question -- is he fit to lead Bravo?

Fans expressed their concern over Jason's mental health. "#SealTeam I hope Jason seeks help soon. Obsessively running his own memory tests isn't going to help him at all. He was going to therapy w/ Ray, maybe he will go back then to a med doctor. Hoping Ray sees something is wrong & reaches out like Jason did with him," tweeted a fan. 
"I have NEVER seen a tv character that gets dogpiled on like Jason. There is nothing positive in his life. Nothing. No light. I honestly don't what message this is trying to convey #SEALteam" asked another. "I just lost it At first I thought he was making a grocery list because he wanted to take better care of himself, then I realized what he WAS doing…….and I lost it. Please Mandy hurry up and come back. #SEALTeam #BringbackMandy," tweeted another. "Geesh Jason can't never catch a freaking breakpoor guy #SealTeam @SEALTeam_pplus," tweeted a fan.
