On the previous episode of SEAL Team, the team jumped out of the plane in order to hike to their target, but Ray’s chute didn’t open. It took a while for them to figure out that his backup HAD opened, but they believed he’d landed in enemy territory. The higher-ups said to finish their objective and Ray would meet them at the exit point. But Jason and the others talked to Blackburn and got the okay to go into enemy territory and find him. It was a very good thing they did, because it wasn’t long before he was found and on the run. Although I did love him hanging in the tree and trying not to move while the two men were below him. If it weren’t for the dang knife he’d dropped! While on the run, Ray sneaked into a small village (which made me very happy to live where I do…) and ended up taking a woman hostage when she walked into her home and found him. He threatened her life if she yelled out to the other villagers, but his crisis of faith finally came to a head when (I think?) she started praying. He realized he couldn’t just execute her, that if this was God’s plan, then he’d either get caught or escape before she could alert them. He finally let her go and ran out the back, and just before he could get captured or killed, his team appeared. Then Mandy spoke to her counterpart in that area and was able to convince her (ie: bribe her with the leaked location of a terrorist her country wanted, even though Mandy giving her the location would be without her boss’s boss’s boss’s or whatever consent) to send in a rescue helicopter to grab the team – and grab them they did. They lowered a rope, and each member clipped themselves to it, and off it went, the team flying on the rope in a row below it! It was awesome.

Other big news was Stella came to visit Clay to see how he was doing. He told her all about Swanny and the fight he’s now undertaken on Swanny’s behalf. It was a good visit, and I actually have hope that MAYBE there will be a reunion between the two of them. Clay also visited his father in the hopes that maybe his dad will take the fight on himself and use his position at the public access TV to help out. And FINALLY, Lisa went to visit her sister in order to invite her to her OCS graduation, and the visit didn’t go well. Her sister blames her for their other sister’s death, and she was kind of a witch to Lisa. She didn’t show at the graduation, which meant Lisa had no one there to support her and see her graduate…until Clay slid into the reserved seat. It was a sweet moment.

So tonight’s finale… Stella and Ash Spencer are back, so hopefully we’ll see some movement on the Clay/Stella and Clay/Swanny’s medal/TBIs fronts. And Commander Shaw is back, which means he’s still going to try to split up the team. I mean, even if he does, it can’t last, since without the team, there wouldn’t be a show, and it’s already been renewed for next season. Still… I hope if he does split them up, it doesn’t last long into next season!

On tonight’s episode, “Never Out of the Fight,” Bravo team’s future is on the line when Commander Shaw recommends they be split up, but Jason’s unit has one final mission to prove him wrong.

Find out Commander Shaw’s decision tonight on CBS at 10/9c.

SEAL Team is doing their damnedest to pull on our heartstrings lately. First there’s Ray, who is having a crisis of faith (and apparently that leads him to drink heavily, fight with his wife, and flirt with another woman…). Then there’s Lisa, who is having a rough go of it at OCS. Then there was the bombing that sent Clay home on medical leave. Thank goodness he’s healing! And of course, then there’s Commander Shaw, who seems to have it out for Bravo Team.

But last week… Last week was killer on the emotions. First, the team was sent to Mali to recover the body of a marine who was killed in action. Luckily they were able to get to him before the extremists. And finally, Clay and Swanny… Oh my… Clay accompanied Swanny to the VA hospital, where Swanny was hoping to convince the doctor to diagnose him with a traumatic brain injury, which wasn’t diagnosed while he was still in the military. The doctor explained to him that because of that, it wasn’t something he could diagnose and therefore treat. They would just have to continue treating the symptoms. Unfortunately, while Clay stayed inside to wait for Swanny’s prescriptions, Swanny went out to the truck and shot himself, leaving Clay to find his body when he went outside. It was an absolutely heartbreaking moment.

There are only three episodes left, including tonight’s. So many balls still in the air… Will Lisa graduate OCS? Will Ray get his head out of his ass? Will Clay heal enough to rejoin Bravo? For that matter, will there still BE a Bravo Team after Commander Shaw gets finished with them? I have a feeling these last three episodes are going to be exciting – and scary, since the show has yet to be renewed and according to TVLine, a renewal could go either way! Boo!!

On tonight’s episode, “Rock Bottom,” the tension between Jason and Ray comes to a head, and Lisa faces her final test in officer candidate school.

To see how Lisa does in OCS, tune in to CBS at 10/9c.

It isn’t very often that I’m super excited about a normal episode of TV (normal as in regular season, not premieres or finales). But tonight’s SEAL Team is coming off a really dramatic one, and I can’t wait for tonight’s. Last week, the team was still deployed, their “Gucci” deployment to the Philippines, where they stay in a hotel while they train Filipino soldiers. It does seem like a cushy deployment – no one shooting at them, lots of downtime eating food from street vendors and drinking in bars. Ray has totally turned a 180 – flirting with a woman who I believe is an American…soldier of some kind? He’s drinking more and more – and hard liquor, not beer. He even lied to Jason about needing to go call Naima, when in reality he went to the bar to drink and talk to the woman. I’m so not liking him right now. Meanwhile, Davis is still at OCS, and last week didn’t go so well for her. It was basically “Hell” training, in which they had to go in a building and put out fires. Something must have happened in Davis’s past, because she clearly froze when she learned about it, and when she got inside and faced the actual fire, ready to go with the hose, she panicked and passed out. I’m wondering if there was a fire when she was a kid and a family member died or something.

But the biggest part of last week’s episode was the end… During their free time at night, the team was at the bar, having a good time, when suddenly there was an explosion. There were dead and injured, but our team and Mandy were all okay, including Sonny, who was outside talking on the phone with Davis. They immediately began searching for survivors and helping the wounded. Clay was all on top of it, running outside to start looking there. He reunited two little brothers, helping find the younger hiding in a truck. But then suddenly, he heard a phone ringing, and he realized it was coming from a backpack near him. Before he could react, it blew, throwing him back and causing severe injuries. He was so critically injured, in fact, that he was airlifted back to the States.

So now the team wants payback, not only for Clay but for the innocent people who were injured and killed. They want to find out who was behind the explosions, whether they were aimed at the team specifically or if it was just a coincidence that they were there. They’ll have to do that while under the watchful eye of Commander Shaw, who it feels like is out to get them – for mistakes made in Mexico, for Clay leaving behind a radio that the Chinese could get their hands on, etc… So hopefully they can find the answers they’re looking for and avoid getting disbanded by the commander.

On tonight’s episode, “Payback,” Bravo Team is out for revenge as they search for the person responsible for the surprise bomb attack that left one of their own in peril.

To see if the team can find answers and revenge tonight on CBS at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Battle of the Ages, The Amazing Race, Dinner Takes All, Gone, Guy’s Grocery Games, & Whiskey Cavalier.

Last week on SEAL Team, Bravo headed to the Afghan side of the Afghanistan/Iran border in order to take out the financier/mastermind behind several terrorist attacks, who was going to be in a little “town” just on the other side of the border. It was supposed to be a quick in/quick out visit for the team, with no one laying eyes on them, because they didn’t have permission to be in Iran and certainly didn’t get permission from the Iranians to kill a man in their country. It was quite a dangerous situation to be in, and unfortunately, two kids from Iran were flying a kite that went down right on top of Jason and Ray, and they were spotted. Ray took the shot just after the kids made it back to the town and notified the men there, and our guys came under fire. They were able to fight back until our waiting Marines from inside Afghanistan came to the rescue, laying down fire so our guys could load up on the waiting transport, and everyone got out safely. Unfortunately, we learned then that Ray just clipped the guy he had taken the shot at and the guy was still alive. That was a blow to both Ray, who is having a crisis of faith, and to Clay, who believed he should have been the one to take the shot.

Ray’s not doing so well lately. He’s taking something (Pain pills? Depression meds? I don’t know…), and he’s going to the bar instead of being home with Naima and the kids. I’m not really liking his character at the moment. So we’ll see where things go with him. And now Davis has told the others about OCS… She has their support, but I’m worried. Is she leaving the show?! I haven’t heard anything about that, but since she said that was her last mission with the team… It’ll be interesting to see how that story line goes! And Jason met up with Adam’s wife/widow, Victoria, at the store, and she basically asked him out to dinner. Unfortunately, at dinner, he admitted that he can’t see her right now as anything but Adam’s wife, letting her know things wouldn’t be going further for them (for now…). He then went to the bar and found a woman who’d come on to him previously, and they went back to the back and had sex. He needs to get back out there, but I don’t like that that’s how he did it. LOL

On tonight’s episode, “Dirt, Dirt, Gucci,” as Bravo Team prepares for what they expect to be a “cushy” deployment with the luxury of staying in a hotel in the Philippines, Jason tries to find a way to pay for Emma’s college.

See if the deployment’s as “cushy” as the team thinks it will be tonight on CBS at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Chicago Med, The Goldbergs, Battle of the Ages, Schooled, Chicago Fire, Dinner Takes All, Gone, Guy’s Grocery Games, Modern Family, Single Parents, Chicago PD, & Whiskey Cavalier.

Things are crazy heated right now on SEAL Team going into tonight’s fall finale. Last week began moments after the week ended, with the team scrambling after being surrounded by the bad guys, who shot off a rocket into one of their vehicles. They were able to grab their previous target, Lazo, and eventually took cover at a local church, tying up the priest in case he was in the with cartel (turns out he wasn’t) and patching up Lazo, who’d been shot. They and the others quickly realized they’d been set up and that someone from the inside was feeding information to Doza. Turns out they were right. The guys thought it was Martinez (who later succumbed to his injuries), but turned out to be Rita, Mandy’s Mexican counterpoint. Apparently Doza had captured her sister and nieces. Thankfully, although who knows why, but she left Mandy there alive at Carla Reyes’s place before she disappeared. Lazo had been asking for his last rites, but Jason refused until he gave up info on Doza’s whereabouts. Just as the rest of the bad guys arrived and began shooting up the church from outside, Lazo caved and gave up the intel, but before the priest could administer them, Lazo died. And just before Jason and the guys were overtaken, Blackburn and the others arrived and shot them, saving the team’s hides.

So now the guys have to get to the place Lazo spilled about Doza’s whereabouts. Maybe then finally this story line will be wrapped. I’ve liked some of it, disliked some, but I’m ready to move on. Hopefully when the show comes back after the break, enough time will have passed that Jason is healing from Alana’s death and not as cranky and things between him and the team and him and Mandy are back to normal. All the bickering and biting and questioning of decisions is getting old really fast!

On tonight’s episode, “Prisoner’s Dilemma,” the hunt for Andres Doza comes to a head when the SEAL Team makes one last ditch effort to find and capture the leader of one of the most powerful and lethal drug cartels in Mexico.

To see if the guys can capture Doza, tune in to CBS at 9:01/8:01c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Ellen’s Game of Games, The Goldbergs, American Housewife, Guy’s Grocery Games, Modern Family, Single Parents, & Criminal MInds.
