SEAL Team - Containment

Hayes (David Boreanaz) and his team are sent to the Bulgarian port city of Varna to prevent the sell of dirty bombs on the black market. Things get more complicated after stopping the terrorists prior to their arrival at the port as the SEALs discover they aren't carrying run-of-the-mill dirty bombs but far more dangerous nuclear warheads which will need to be driven (very carefully) out of the area in rickety old trucks, across even more rickety old bridges, with more terrorists on the way to recover their stolen property.

While most of the episode centers around Hayes and his men in the field, we do get Ellis (Jessica Paré), who continues to be one of the show's best underdeveloped resources as the team's primary CIA contact, working over the terrorists, some Hayes family drama, Sonny (A.J. Buckley) and Davis (Toni Trucks) reconnecting with an old teammate (Steve Howey), and Ray (Neil Brown Jr.) stuck back in the States with a shoulder injury. The later turns out to be weakest plot thread - although Ray's absence does allow the show to move Sonny far out of his comfort zone as the team's #2 man in the field.
