“SEAL Team” is a military drama on CBS that was recently moved to their streaming service Paramount+. It stars David Boreanaz as Jason Hayes, the highly decorated and respected leader of Team Bravo. But it’s not all fun and war games for him. He has physical injuries and PTSD from his job, issues that go largely unaddressed until the show introduces a love interest to help him cope with those issues.
In Season 3 of SEAL Team, the action gets a bit of a break when Swallow joins the cast as Natalie Pierce. Pierce is a research physiologist (which, according to ZipRecruiter, is actually a real job) who has the thankless task of keeping tabs on the health and well-being of SEAL team members. From an early age, she is particularly concerned about Hayes’ health and well-being as they succumb to lust (and eventually become more than just friends with benefits). For better or for worse, their relationship ends after Natalie is transferred to a better job in California. She asks Hayes to come along, but that would mean settling for a desk job, which he refuses. He’s too married to the job to settle down.
