“Siege Protocol: Part 1 and Part 2” — Amid several life-altering moments on the home front, Bravo Team travels overseas to extract a CIA agent who is being held hostage. As the situation escalates, the Tactical Operations Center is compromised and Bravo’s support team comes face-to-face with the enemy, on the two-hour winter premiere of SEAL TEAM, Wednesday, Feb. 26 (9:01-11:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.

After two months off the air, SEAL TEAM is back with a two-part return, as Bravo heads to Venezuela to try and rescue a kidnapped CIA agent.

“From a writing perspective, after two months off, we wanted to [re]introduce these characters and start the episode by showing what the whole show is really about: How do you do the hardest job in the world, that none of us—who have never done it—can relate to, with the same problems at home that everyone can relate to?” executive producer Spencer Hudnut explained on a panel at the drama’s midseason premiere event. “We really wanted to start this off showing [the stakes for these] characters. The real stakes are what happens to these people when they’re in the line of fire and even more importantly, having [issues] at home.”

And the team has a fair number of issues at home in “Siege Protocol”: Jason (David Boreanaz) unexpectedly takes a major step forward in his relationship with Natalie (Emily Swallow); Clay’s (Max Thieriot) new relationship with Rebecca (Adelaide Kane)  is threatened both by their very different lifestyles and a former flame; Ray (Neil Brown Jr.) continues on his path to a promotion; and Sonny (AJ Buckley) is struggling with his colleagues’ shifting priorities.

“Will Jason be able to maintain a relationship, continue looking for help, continue looking for life after operating?” Hudnut teases. “Will Clay figure out where he wants to be in life? Will Ray be able to maintain the balance that he has with his family? Other shows, the audience wants to know that the world has stayed the same; [on our show] they just want to know that our people are going to be okay. We try to honor the men and women who wear the uniform by showing how much they sacrifice both on the battlefield and off.”

    I understand the need for the hype, but SEAL T. went in another direction when they involved one of Jason’s doctors in a sexual relationship, not cool, but it’s good for drama, I certainly hope the implication isn’t that she fixes him, also not correct. Jason implied he wouldn’t be back for any more therapy, he was good. The doc has provided him with a place to hide. So in essence it’s a TV show all be it a good one, but not necessarily authentic, or real. Don’t know about Clay, Sunny, Ray also glad that the shows two underrated characters will feature in these episodes. Mandy and Blackburn.
