“SEAL Team” found itself suddenly bound for Africa as a sudden mission sends the team overseas on Sunday night.

This episode, Outsiders, was the series’ final one on CBS. Future episodes are on Paramount+. Let’s take a look with some help from TV Line.

In “Need to Know,” the intel changed their plan as they are in a hurry to prevent a major terrorist attack.

Jason, played by David Boreanaz, kept Emma’s boyfriend Brad on his toes, then just as he got the call spin up, they shared with him their plan to live together. Jason said no until he returns.

‘SEAL Team’ Finds Itself Headed Out To Africa And Square Off Against SGS

At the Bulkhead, Lisa, played by Toni Trucks, grabs a lunch/bats around thesis ideas with handsome Grant, who’s in the DoD fellowship with her. On “SEAL Team,” Sonny spots them from the bar. Just then, the news breaks about a series of terrorist attacks on tourist spots in West Africa.

A group called SGS has supplanted Boko Haram as the most powerful terrorist force in the West African region, Blackburn and Davis report, and they are behind the attacks that left more than a hundred dead.

Bravo leaves to make camp in Burkina Faso — though when they get there, it’s clear that the CIA, at least, has been in town for a good while ahead of the attacks.

Carl Dryden, Bravo’s CIA liaison, shows up tight-lipped and keeps Lisa on her toes. Bravo’s task is targeting a total of three HVTs in two neighboring safe houses at night, though just as they are about to kick some doors, Dryden tells Davis to order Bravo to stand down.

CIA Liason Dryden Shares Big Plan To Target HTVs In Broad Daylight

Dryden shares the latest intel and a comparatively audacious plan to target the HVTs in broad daylight. That’s before they board planes leaving a small airstrip near a petroleum plant. Though not without their reservations, Jason and Ray agree to the plan.

On “SEAL Team,” they find themselves near the airstrip. Bravo pulls over and enters the plant on foot, where they gun down several tangos — including two of the HVTs. When they then get pinned down by a machine gun nest, Trent takes it out with some sort of grenade.

Bravo then breathes easier and gets to gathering/relaying intel from the terrorist command center they found inside the petroleum plant. Lisa and her analysts learn that the last HVT is planning to board a train and suicide bomb the U.S. consulate.

As Bravo is clearing out of the SGS command center, one photo of many taped to a wall catches Jason’s eye — it’s of Mandy, who clearly is/was being held prisoner by SGS.
