Clay was finally deemed ready for tonight’s all-new episode of “SEAL Team” to join the rest of the unit in the debriefing room. However, he was still the new guy and so he had been asked to bring along beer. Not microbrew or any foreign brand of beer, but real beer they all recognize because everytime Clay would make a mistake he would then have to bring along another case of beer. So there was some hazing in the beginning and it even became a running joke when the others decided to all demand another case of beer if Clay merely talked to them.
But it was all in good fun. They didn’t mean anything by what they did and Clay wasn’t offended because he knew what it was like going in. He told Stella that it was like a fraternity and had taken the jokes made at his expense with grace. So Clay had believed he was ready to go to work when DEVGRU had gotten an important assignment. The unit had been informed that a CIA asset that used to work for Russia and was part of their team to hacking US infrastructure had decided tonight to defect.
Dr. Dimitri Zimov had informed the CIA that he wanted to defect with his wife and therefore they sent an escort to bring him to Afghanistan. Yet, the plane they had taken had, unfortunately, run into a lightning storm and it had crashed still inside of China’s borders though there were still signs of life. There had been satellite images of survivors walking away from the crash site and the Americans believe it could be the doctor and his wife who used to hike in their spare time. So the unit was given a very case sensitive situation.
They were told to pick up the doctor and ensure neither the Chinese nor the Russians got to him first. Though they couldn’t alert or alarm the Chinese with their presence in case they caused an issue that could possibly result in WWIII. So they all got on board with the mission and they had done their best to take precautions along the way. The first thing they did upon landing was carried out surveillance and what they found was an armed group that moved like Americans, but couldn’t be Americans.
They were instead Russians that wanted anyone else in the area to believe they were Americans. But there was only one team that the Russians had that moved like Americans and it was their elite team that. So they had to wait for the other guys out to get their own chance at investigating the plane and, once that happened, Clay thought he should offer up his own insight. He advised them to try and catch up to the Russian team, however, Jason had shot that down almost instantaneously because Clay’s plan would have drawn notice.
Which was exactly what they didn’t want! They were told to stay under the radar and couldn’t jeopardize that on the off chance the Russians beat them to the doc. However, Jason reminded Clay that they had a dog and could use him to find the doctor and his wife before the Russian Team. So they had to stay light on their feet and move quickly yet they eventually found the doctor and that time Clay was able to help. He convinced the doc who was refusing to come out of his hiding spot that if he did they could help whoever was injured.
They had noticed someone was bleeding at the crash site and it turns out that it was the wife. Katya had a nasty cut to her leg that could easily become infected if not treated and so Clay’s offer had been the only thing to convince the doc to hand over his weapon. Yet, the doctor hadn’t wanted to stay around when he heard which Russian team was hunting him and. later on, he snuck away from the unit in order to turn himself over. He thought if he did that then he could protect his wife and she could still live the life he promised her in the States, but Jason couldn’t let the doctor so something that stupid.
He decided to go after him with Clay’s help because they were the two fastest moving men on the team. But by time they found Dr. Zimov, it was already morning and they couldn’t make it back to the border. They couldn’t risk being detected by the Chinese that were in the area and so they waited to move again until nightfall because the Chinese didn’t have night vision to help them. So Jason had some time to talk to Clay and he told the other man not to get distracted. And by that he meant Stella who technically doesn’t live with Clay though she’s been sleeping at his place for over a week.
Jace told Clay that he had to put things in priority and so if she meant something to Clay then he should put her down as his next of kin so that she’s notified if something ever happened to him. Though talking about his relationship had made him feel like he was in a session with Dr. Phil and so Jason said he cares about everyone on his team. So that now included Clay who didn’t have to call Adam by his title anymore. And when the sun finally went back down, they took the doc and joined up with the others.
However, they had run into the Russians who hadn’t wanted to draw the Chinese’ notice and so they threw a couple of flash bangs in order to get the other team out of their way. So the guys made it across the border and they got the doctor on the flight to the states, but Clay now owes the unit 19 cases of beer and so he got some help with getting out of that.
