9 burning questions for Paramount + ‘s 2022 return
There is good news, and there is bad news after the last SEAL team. The good news is, it didn’t end on a major cliffhanger (rather, a major blowout). The bad news is that these are the last new episodes of 2021, with the next set due out on Paramount + on January 2.
In Season 5, Episode 10 “Head On”, Bravo was given a different mission, an Omega Operation for volunteers only, and they were told it could last anywhere from one to six months in South America. They operated outside traditional structures and did not work technically for the DOD or recognized by the CIA. They were given complete autonomy to carry out the missions, without surveillance, without backup, without fingerprint and without protection. They had limited communication at home, are alone and have no cavalry – no exceptions.
Once in South America, they discovered they had to dismantle Venezuela’s nuclear weapons program, capturing or killing one of Dr. Jin’s students – the scientist who defected from North Korea. He was the key to the program. From the start, Clay (Max Thieriot), who was only there to watch Jason (David Boreanaz) with his recent memory problems, pushed his team leader away. The operation, of course, didn’t go as planned, but they improvised and killed the man (though Clay kept arguing that the capture would be better, to see if he could shed light on the program). And then things got… messy.
Waiting for SEAL teamOn the way back, we take a look at the questions we have after the first 10 episodes of Season 5.
