Season 5 of 'SEAL Team' might have started with a bang, but the latest episode guarantees to leave you emotional. Titled 'Nine Ten', Episode 3 has the team think about where they were during the 9/11 attacks, recounting how it shaped their choices, decisions and forever changes the course of their lives. With Jason (David Boreanaz), Clay (Max Thieriot), Ray (Neil Brown Jr.) , Sonny (AJ Buckley) and Davis (Toni Trucks) heading to the memorial centre, they all look back on the day before the attacks, recounting where they were and what they were doing. 

If you're hoping to catch up with the series, you can check out what happened in Episodes 1 and 2 over here. With the team ferrying a set of bolt cutters, one that they used in the ops to bring justice to the people who lost their lives in the 9/11 attacks, the team looks back on where they were when it happened. For a young Jason, he was with Alana, reconsidering his options while focusing on his family. For Sonny, he seemed lost without a direction or care in the world, drifting through life, not wanting to be tied down by responsibility.

'SEAL Team' Season 5 Fan Review: Viewers wonder if this season's theme is 'distrust'

Clay reconnected with his father, who was also a SEAL as they briefly bonded over his past. Davis was in high school and a conversation with her neighbor, who was a part of the Women Airforce Service Pilots inspired her with her acts of service and reminded her to never think of herself as second to anyone. And finally, there was a young Ray, who had begun to act out after losing a wrestling scholarship. His father, a firefighter tried to set him on a straight path but seemed to fail. It wasn't until Ray lost his father during the attacks that he later enrolled to be a part of the military. 

The episode was a somber one and fans felt the surge of emotion. They were also left impressed with the casting of the episode, seeing that the casting was spot on. "The casting, acting and writing is making this episode feel real and not like a tv show. It's a life and times of people we care about. @SEALTeam_pplus @SEALTeamWriters #SEALTeam" tweeted a fan. "Okay…anyone else a little freaked out at how remarkably close the flashback characters are to our real, present day characters? Mannerisms and voices…wow!! @SEALTeam_pplus @SEALTeamWriters #SEALTeam #WheelsUp" added a fan. "When you are in your 5th season, you have earned doing backstories on your characters. This is earned & very well done  #SEALteam" agreed another. "This #SealTeam episode really hits home. I stood at the World Trade Center in June. Very sombering moment." tweeted another.
