SEAL Team Finale Recap: Season 6 Episode 10 – Jason TBI
Paramount+ Marine Special Forces ended Season 6 with a daring escape, a sad visit to Clay’s grave, a bit of Bulkhead celebration, and then a medal ceremony that had it all a wild twist.
Jason & Co. picked up right where they left off last week when Bravo’s exfil was shot down by a missile and the team was stranded on a bombed-out street while Tangos arrived, and Jason & Co. quickly solved the problem. With Ray and Brock as guards/snipers, Jay and Omar went to the downed helicopter on command while Sonny and Trent went to secure a vehicle. At the copter, Jay and Omar found one pilot okay and the other badly wounded but still breathing. Things got very intense when Sonny and Trent got pinned yards away from a bunch of bad guys, and although Sonny (not himself, in the wake of the Clay news) nearly defected to start a fight, he (and probably others ) certainly wouldn’t win, Ray persuaded him. And when most of the villains were cleared out, Bravo cleared the rest of the field and reunited at the chopper. Where the pilot needed urgent care, Sonny pulled out a backup medication, which he began packing under his vest ever since Clay nearly died in Mali.
Bravo didn’t make it back to the States in time for Clay’s funeral, so they instead gathered at his headstone, where Ray updated everyone on the circumstances of Clay’s death. (“What’s that vet going to do with the years that Clay won’t get?” Sonny asked; Ray said, “I hope he makes the best of it.”) The team left Sonny alone with Clay for a moment, where he reminisced himself “all those times you swam with me and I made you vulnerable to the sharks.” Sonny then said he would make good on the promise he made after Clay was wounded in Mali: “I’m going up Stella and Brian be careful, don’t worry about them.” Stella herself then came to Sonny’s side and explained that the funeral could not be postponed as Command could not say how long or short Bravo would be. Sonny invited Stella over to the Bulkhead for a farewell, but she admitted she wasn’t ready to face all those memories just yet.
At that bulkhead meeting, Mandy met Omar, and Clay’s father, Ash, nudged Jason a bit that he would “have a memorial for his son today,” but tomorrow Jason gets the Navy Cross for saving Clay’s life. “How’s that for irony?” But Jason made it clear that he too agrees the situation is “Bulls-t”, the men calmed down and Clay’s photo was posted on the wall next to Swanny’s where Ash noted that Bravo gave Clay the family and support that he couldn’t get.
Elsewhere at the bulkhead: When Lisa arrived, she fended off Sonny’s recent bickering about not doing Bravo right by relaying the information she literally just received: Mali went sideways because the fight room commander, Col. Decker had neglected to change communications channels as often as he should, so SGS had overheard and knew Bravo was coming. And since Decker was about to be promoted to brigadier general, the “oops” was swept under the rug. Later, however, Sonny sought his own little bit of justice by finding Decker in a Packie parking lot and then knocking him down in one fell swoop. “You’re a moron about security, Colonel. At least nobody died this time.”
The next day was Jason’s Navy Cross ceremony, where Stella dismissed the honoree’s concerns. “If you hadn’t saved Clay that day, I would have had even less time with my husband and he would never have had the chance to be a father, which he loved so much,” she said. “I have never taken a second of that time for granted and I am here to see that you are honored that you have given it to us.” (When my eyes opened umpteenth Time to just recap that exchange.) Blackburn, meanwhile, informed Davis that Decker had been attacked the night before by someone who knew him, and if the attacker was military, hell was going to pay. Lisa then sat down next to Sonny, noticing his injured ankles – and smilingly took his hand.
Blackburn gave a great speech about Jason’s exploits and then invited the Navy Cross recipient to say a few words. And words he said!
Jason admitted that Clay would never have been caught in that ambush if he hadn’t necessarily joined the operation to keep an eye on his TBI-injured team leader. So while Clay had his team’s back, “I watched my own back because I was worried that command would find out what this war had done to my head,” Jason told the crowd. “I hid my brain injury; Clay Spenser paid the ultimate price for it.” Jay noted how Clay once tried to fight the good fight against TBI suppression but was told to resign. “That’s why I’m taking up this fight for him today, because this war machine needs to stop ignoring the problem and start protecting the protectors.”
A montage that followed Jason’s explanation made us think things had gone bad for everyone afterwards. We saw Stella take a picture of Clay with Bravo… Ray removed the signage of their vet center from the arrivals area… and Jason, who was on the beach with Cerberus, was seen speeding toward the ocean and diving into it… and didn’t surface.
But then we saw what was Yes, really further on when Stella re-hung the Bravo photo in Brian’s nursery to watch over him… Ray replaced the sign with one representing his and Naima’s facility Spenser House (sob!)… and Jason emerged from the water.
We then hopped into a briefing room, where Jason was called to the carpet by Blackburn and other supervisors for what he publicly disclosed. “You made a hell of a mess and left us no choice but to drop you off,” Blackburn announced. Ray interrupted proceedings to “change” his character statement, revealing that he has suffered from PTS since his abduction. And just as Blackburn dismissed Ray’s gesture and the sense he believed it would prove, EVVVALLE BODY entered the room – Sonny, Brock, Trent, Omar and two dozen other operators, each sharing what was affecting them. Almost constant headache. tinnitus Breacher Syndrome. The inability to sleep. blurred vision memory lapses. They call it.
“Thanks, brother,” Jason said to Ray next to him. Ray scoffed, “What’s the order to do, pull all our birds? As you taught me, chief dog: always improve your fighting position.”
