While SEAL Team never fails to deliver some intense twists on CBS, the cliffhanger at the end of the March 10 episode had nothing to do with bullets flying or buildings exploding on the characters. The hour ended with Jason arrested by an NCIS agent (but not one from one of CBS' hit crime procedurals) under suspicion of violating Article 119 of the Uniform Code of Military Justice. Unfortunately, SEAL Team is leaving fans hanging without a new episode to pay off on that cliffhanger this week, but the good news is that we know when it's coming back and what to expect.
SEAL Team returns to CBS on Wednesday, March 24 at 9 p.m. ET with an episode called "A Question of Honor" that will shed light on what has already happened to get Jason in trouble and what will happen to him after his arrest. The previous episode didn't even clarify for viewers what Article 119 of the Uniform Code of Military Justice actually is, although it was clear enough from everybody's reactions that this wasn't a case of Jason doing something wrong when it comes to his actual uniform.
"A Question of Honor" will see Jason's career and even freedom hanging in the balance after Command accuses him of committing a horrific crime while on a mission, and a little bit of research reveals that Article 119 of the Uniform Code of Military justice concerns manslaughter. Jason stands accused of a very serious crime, and I think it's probably safe to say that this is a misunderstanding at best and a frame job at worst.
Jason won't even have the support of all those closest to him in the Navy, as Bravo will be under a no-contact order that means this is a battle that Jason has to face without his Bravo brothers, and a battle that doesn't take place in the field. "A Question of Honor" will see the return of Jessica Paré as Mandy Ellis, who departed SEAL Team back in the Season 4 premiere but is back to not only reprise her role, but also direct the episode.
What's not clear at this point is who Jason will (and won't) have on his side, who Jason is suspected of killing, and what kind of opposition he's facing. The trailer for the episode does shed some more light, but the footage doesn't make the situation look very good for Jason. Take a look at what's in store:
To make bad news worse for Jason, Lindell is pretty heated when he tells Jason that the charges come from above him on the ladder at the Navy, and this fight is against a "foe unlike anything you've battled before" and this is the most important fight of his life. Jason is clearly determined to beat this case that seemingly came out of nowhere, but this also doesn't seem like a story that can be wrapped up in a single episode, or that won't have any consequences in the long run.
See what happens for Jason when "A Question of Honor" airs as the next episode of SEAL Team Season 4 on CBS, on March 24 at 9 p.m. ET ahead of a new episode of S.W.A.T. that could be eventful for Chris. This has been a tough season all around for Jason on SEAL Team, so hopefully he catches a break sooner rather than later. Just not a break from the action in the form of a jail cell!
