The latest episode of “SEAL Team” on CBS was great.


I had a feeling that “Dirt, Dirt, Gucci” was going to be outstanding from the first moment that I saw the preview. A mission to the Philippines that was supposed to be easy going sideways and Chinese special forces getting involved? Sign me up.

What was supposed to be a simple training mission turned into a major situation after it was revealed that a crashed plane might have secret Chinese tech being used to hit oil liners in the South China Sea.

With Bravo Team in the country already, they’re spun up to get the tech and search for survivors. There’s just one major problem.

Chinese special forces have parachuted in and are prepared for a violent confrontation with American forces. If that doesn’t sound exciting to you, then I suggest you check your pulse.

The Chinese call in an airstrike to destroy their secret technology, the team escapes moments before the bombs hit and they’re headed home with a prisoner.

It was exciting and intense as hell as you watch the Chinese special forces paint the wreckage with a laser as the plane can be heard inbound. Now, we’ll have to wait and see what kind of tech has been recovered.

On the home front, Davis is in OCS, and it’s not off to a hot start at all. In fact, it really couldn’t be going much worse.

Finally, it appears like we’re about to get a storyline on the horizon about whether or not Jason is leaving the SEALs. A mercenary friend of his is in the Philippines, he’s struggling to pay for his daughter’s college and it all seems like it’s building up to a massive decision.

My guess, he’s not leaving. The show is called “SEAL Team.” It’s not called “Guns For Hire Team.”

Tune in this Wednesday for a new episode. It should be great. A conflict with Chinese forces at some point in the future would be epic. Will it happen?

Only time will tell.
