For 'SEAL Team's Bravo, rest is not a word in their dictionary. The moment things seem to settle is exactly when a new mission crops up, all while having them deal with their own personal issue. And if there is anyone on the team who is struggling to maintain a grasp on things, it would have to be Jason (David Boreanaz). With his memory deteriorating, Jason is starting to feel the brunt of having to lead the team. And now, there might be a whole new threat at stake.

As per the episode synopsis, "As each member of Bravo confronts major family obstacles, the team gets spun up on a sudden mission in Africa. When the intel alters their plan, the team finds themselves in a rush to prevent a major terrorist attack, in part one of a three-part episode arc of SEAL TEAM."

Episode 4, titled 'Need To Know' kicks off with each of the Bravo team members dealing with their internal issues. While Jason grapples with Emma trying to move in with her new boyfriend, to Clay (Max Thieriot) confronting his father and realizing that his illness might be grave as well as Sonny (AJ Buckley) seeing Davis (Toni Trucks) going out on what looks like a date, each of them has their fair share of problems. Ray (Neil Brown Jr) seems to be doing better when it comes to his PTSD, but his peace regarding the same only lasts for so long, as the higher-ups seemed to have noticed his 'dangerously erratic behavior'.

After a terrorist attack in West Africa by latter-day Isis disciples, Bravo is set out in order to take out three high-value targets who function as the terrorist organization's mastermind. Right from the get-go, it seems as Bravo is functioning in the dark when their mission is suddenly compromised and they are asked to retreat. Based on orders, they now have to go after the targets while storming an airstrip while said targets attempt to flee the country.

They manage to kill two out of the three, but they find the terrorist command center, they soon realize that the last target is planning another suicide bombing, where he intends to blow up the US Embassy. As Bravo roles out, Jason makes a startling discovery. He finds a photo of Mandy (Jessica Paré) and realizes that she is being held captive by the terrorist organization. The question now remains -- will Jason be able to save her? Fans are desperately hoping he can. 

"JASON GO GET YOUR GIRL!!! #SEALTeam" tweeted a fan. "Mandy looks rough! Jason needs to save her! #SEALteam @SEALTeamWriters @SEALTeam_pplus" added another. "Ray of all people has GOT to know how crucial it is that they find and rescue her ASAP #SEALTeam" tweeted a fan, seeing that Ray is the only other person who now knows that Mandy is in SGS captivity.
