5 Things We Are Looking for in Season 3 of ‘Seal Team’

Sometimes I feel like the TV gods like to punish me.  This is one of those instances. While most fall series are premiering the week of September 23rd, if you love Seal Team like me, we have to wait another week.  To me, that is just torture. This series is one of the few shows that I still actually watch live. That is how much I love it. So, while we wait for what seems like years for the season 3 premiere, let’s talk about what I want out of it. 

State of Bravo

Bravo Team is currently out of the fight and Mandy is no longer the CIA liaison. Bravo team is first and foremost a family. If one of them is gone there is a noticeable gaping hole.  Right now we have two, Clay and Mandy.

On top of that, Bravo is too much of a “risk” to deploy. God forbid they do things a slightly different way.  They get the job done about 99.9% of the time. Let’s be honest, they need to Bravo too much to not let them be deployed. They are too good at what they do and it’s in their blood. 

Clay getting back on the team

Watching Clay get injured last season just about tore my heart out of my chest.  Next to Sonny, he is my favorite. He is the precious baby of the team. He needs to be protected at all costs and right now he needs his family.  Bravo is not the same without him. He also needs to let them in. He needs to get his fantastic ass, and it’s a great one, back on the team. 

A little fucking happiness for Jason

Listen, I think we can all agree that Jason has been through some serious shit.  What I want more for him than anything is a little damn happiness that isn’t taken away. I don’t care what it is. Just show him some god damn happiness. 

 Sonny and Clay bromance

Through this whole post I have been shouting my love for Clay and Sonny, so this shouldn’t be a surprise. The bromance brings me endless joy and laughs. These two started out clearly not liking each other when our little nugget, Clay, first joined the team. Then Bravo embraced Clay and he became family and the bromance blossomed. In real life as well, just go check out Max Thieriot and AJ Buckley’s Insta anytime. 

I am looking forward to more of the love fest and endless brotherhood these two have for each other. Also, the endless concern, teasing, nicknames, and hell they give each other.  I also love Sonny’s ever growing list of phobias. 

These are just some of my favorite nicknames that Sonny has given Clay.

Blondie, Pin-up girl, Bam-Bam, Fabio, Sleeping Beauty, Ken Doll. 

Bravo Team

While I love the family aspects of the team, the bonding, the support, the importance of shining light on problems soldiers face. The other thing I love is watching Bravo do what they do best. Kickass. The show-runners and writers of Seal Team always find a way to up the boys and their missions. I can’t wait to see what they take head on this season. 

What do you want this season on Seal Team?

  1. I guess we are not reviewing S.3. It’s really a very good show, even if they have changed the dynamics by Mandy’s demotion back to the field, she is still the most underrated character in the series…but there is a new relaxed almost playful Mandy emerging, still brilliantly beautiful, but not so stressed…Jessica Pare doing a great job…I think Jason Hayes has breached her walls, but he’ll never know it, and for a guy who didn’t want any pity when Alana was killed sure brings it up every chance he gets, and by the way They were divorced, why does he and others call her his wife? Facts matter! Jason is a puddle of survivors guilt, and 20 years of ignored battlefield trauma, he does have options which he won’t take advantage of, the new CO Captain Lindell has brought in a Physiologist, to DEVGRU, to help extend the longevity of the battlefield soldier.. played by Emily Swallow, I am sure they will toy with some kind of suggestive romance line with her, no that’s pretty predictable…but I hope she can help Jason, he should also give the Psychologist who’s card he has in his drawer, a call while he’s at it….
    LIsa Davis has usurped Mandy’s role as Intel officer which is a bit of a step, 6 months training vs years, she is having difficulty with the role plus her risky relationship with Sonny, doesn’t look good for them as Ray is aware, and not happy about it…
    The missions are awesome, but Jasons trauma is obvious and we get it…. to belabor the point is to miss the point, and I hope they will now concentrate on his acceptance and acknowledgment of his trauma and move toward managing it.
    The thread that has been woven throughout the series of the bond between Mandy and Jason, with a hint of something more is becoming tiresome, although he is not relationship material at this point, she may do well to just accept the fact that , he is just not into her, and move on… his acknowledgment of the price she paid for saving their lives, and Bravo as a team, was lame, he has become a self centered jackass….

  2. Lots of changes from the end of S.2. to going in to S.3. E.5. Mandy is not longer the CIA analyst exclusively for Bravo, she was reassigned for not following the COC, and saving the lives of 6 men, so she is back in the field and will be the Interrogations& field operations officer, for all of DEVGRU, making way for Ensign Lisa dAvis as the new Intel officer for Bravo, with a scant 6 month crash course in intelligence….Mandy is still the most underutilized and undervalued character in the show..
    Jason is a hot mess, we have had 4 pretty intense episodes of his severe battlefield trauma, we get it, to belabor this issue is to lose the point.. he as stored all of the household contents, and is existing in a “cave” as Emma put it… he called her said he was making changes, she came home, to an angry, self pitying, detached Dad, who couldn’t even hug her, she did however point out a few not so well accepted facts to him…good for her! I didn’t see any changes….
    The new CO Captain Lindell is introducing a Physiologist to DEVGRU,she is supposed to help in bringing longevity to the battlefield soldier..Dr. Natalie has introduced herself to Jason he is resentful,I can see the writers toying with a suggestive romance, and maybe he needs a 24/7 physiologist and a psychologist, but anyway she’s gonna get under the hood, and maybe that’s not all…
    The team is also under going some changes, and Sonny and Lisa’s doomed romance is causing some angst too…. I am still,watching, I keep,thinking they are repurposing Mandy’s role, I really miss her, and I think Jason has already breached her walls, but she will never let on. I love her strength, her courage and her quiet resolve, but I think she has placed her love in the wrong guy, he doesn’t see her, he is still in love with the ghost of his ex wife… not a good place to be…. sometimes we have to just accept that ” he’s just not that into you” and move on… she inthe right business she can hide somewhere else.
