Big Question: Can Jason and Clay Get Along?
With their character arcs finally merged, it's anybody's guess if Jason and Clay can co-exist now that they have to work together. Clay has improved his attitude and is trying to become more of a team player, while Jason has made an effort to put aside his bias against Clay and accept him as part of the team. Working side-by-side could either cause them to bond or clash frequently. It will be interesting to see how this plays out.
Best Casting: David Boreanaz as Jason Hayes
A proven TV star with a 20-year track record of success, David Boreanaz was a great choice to portray SEAL Team leader Jason Hayes. He fits the role of "tough guy struggling with inner demons" well, and is capable of being both heroic and down-to-earth. Boreanaz often carries the show, whether leading his SEALs into combat or dealing with personal issues at home.
Character to Keep an Eye On: Sonny
We can always rely on Sonny to relieve the tension and re-focus Bravo Team with his sarcastic sense of humor and one-liners, but that that sarcasm may mask some deeper issues that could come to light eventually. There have been times during this season when his emotions got the better of him and he showed signs of being a loose cannon with the potential to disrupt a mission. He always ends up falling in line, but that may not always be the case in the future. We wonder how the situation with his friend, Danny, will continue to effect him.
Most Annoying Character: Ambassador Crowley
Crowley, the acting ambassador at the US embassy in Sudan, was a condescending douche who is willing to risk everyone's life to protect his image. For refusing to give the evacuation order because it would make him look bad, sending the SEALs on a wild goose chase into dangerous territory just to get them off his back, and ditching Ray and Lisa while he flees the embassy, Crowley was a character we loved to hate.
Underrated Character: Lisa
As Bravo Team's no-nonsense logistics officer, Lisa Davis runs a tight ship, quickly shoots down B.S. and serves as the "unofficial den mother" responsible for making sure the team is outfitted with the necessary gear for each mission. She can also hold her own in the field. Hopefully she will factor more into the drama of the show and we will learn more of her backstory as this season progresses.
Character Who Needs More Development: Mandy
The team's CIA analyst will do everything in her power to back up her SEALs, and has shown a willingness to throw her weight around when necessary. It would be nice if the shows writers would give this character more to do, and reveal more about her background. It was said that she had to make a lot of difficult choices and make sacrifices to pursue her career -- maybe we will get more details about her later this season.
