The hunt for Ray goes on and on.
The second a part of Bravo Takes Tunisia on SEAL Team Season 4 Episode 5 examines the lengths to which staff members have been prepared to go to save lots of their lacking brother.
And the reply to that query was … it relies upon.
This marks the third episode that includes Ray falling into the palms of terrorists as a part of his new duties as a warrant officer.
It hasn’t been that lengthy in narrative time. But it surely’s been 5 consecutive episodes for viewers since Ray’s abduction. With one other hiatus, it’ll be a very long time earlier than we would see the conclusion of this story arc.
Whereas, in fact, TV productions are on the mercy of Covid now, with SEAL Group nonetheless on manufacturing hiatus, may a little bit community foresight have averted such sporadic scheduling?
A present ought to get one, perhaps two cliffhangers a season, not one each month as a result of, nicely, there are not any new episodes to air as a result of networks are throwing them on as quickly as potential then hoping for an additional one to point out up.
And when that does not occur, robust. Is it any marvel streaming providers are thriving greater than linear broadcasting? Viewers need continuity.
The scenes with Ray and his mysterious cellmate have been the lesser, extra predictable a part of the narrative.
Early on, it appeared like Ray’s cellmate was a spy put in there to get info out of him.
However the truth that Ray was in a position to hold onto his piece of steel grating/noticed all through their time collectively squashed that concept.
Ray was a rock who was mentally robust. He bucked up his frightened civilian cellmate with out ever gifting away what he was.
And he was all the time scheming to flee and even obtained his cellmate to imagine.
Solely Ray guessed unsuitable. The cellmate was disposable. Ray was drawn to him, after which his cellmate was killed within the enemy’s newest try to interrupt him.
The intriguing twist was that Ray was being held on a ship. That is going to tougher to storm, even for Navy SEALs than if he have been nonetheless being held on land.
The large questions are 1) how for much longer will Ray be captive, and a pair of) how lengthy will the ensuing PTSD storyline final?
Do not get me unsuitable. Ray and Clay are probably the most layered characters on the present, so specializing in both of them is an efficient factor.
Ray’s restoration is sure to be extra fascinating than the persevering with debate over whether or not Jason might be anything past Bravo One.
Jason has had combined emotions about this entire mission. He is again the place he belongs accountable for Bravo however solely returned as a result of Ray obtained kidnapped.
In any other case, he would nonetheless be again at headquarters, ignoring his personal assignments to kibbutz with the out-of-whack Bravo Group.
You’ll be able to’t actually blame him. Developing with mission plans must be like taking part in a shooter videogame fairly than being in the course of the motion.
Jason is rapidly growing older out of being an operator. But it surely’s a lot extra fulfilling to look again on previous glories than it’s to try to guage an unsure future.
He remained the king of denial, telling anybody who would hear that he was simply again till Bravo recovers Ray.
However significantly, who else can run Bravo? Ray should heal. Clay stays in Lindell’s doghouse due to the letter. There aren’t any different viable candidates among the many present roster, which has been already confirmed earlier this season.
Lindell wants Jason as Bravo One, not as an detached paper pusher. And some months with Natalie and Cerberus has most likely gotten the necessity for normalcy out of Jason’s system.
Jason’s not himself if he is not within the combat. Most of Bravo is identical manner.
That is why Jason needed to trouble Davis, who was doubting herself as a result of she hadn’t had many successes with current missions within the seek for Ray.
Jason, who lives on hunches, informed Davis to go along with her intestine and shouted down any of his brothers who questioned Davis’s suggestion for a mission.
That is why Jason fixiated on Ray’s watch fairly than observe orders and chase down the chief of the terrorists who took Ray.
It was fulfilling to look at Jason and Clay’s approaches to interrogating the enemy smugglers. It wasn’t like Sonny may use his superpower and drink this group of Muslims underneath the desk.
Ultimately, Clay used psychology to pry info out of the disgruntled subordinate who had Ray’s watch, pondering he was sparing Jason from crossing the road and torturing the group’s boss.
Bravo has a route to go now, discovering out the place Ray was taken after they only missed discovering him on SEAL Team Season 4 Episode 4.
However how do they go about discovering one ship in an enormous ocean, since escape now appears unlikely for Ray? And does that imply a couple of episode till Ray is rescued?
Then, after Ray returns, what is going to the brand new established order be?
Let’s hope there are some solutions Wednesday, Jan. 27, on the ultimate new episode for this month.
To observe Ray’s travails, watch SEAL Team online.

Have been you involved Jason would go overboard?
