"Bravo Team travels overseas for a foreign training exercise to disguise their true mission – to rescue a high-value target that is being held hostage," an official synopsis for the episode reads. "Also, NASCAR driver Austin Dillon gives the team a special driving lesson, on SEAL TEAM."
As Trump gave his speech from the Oval Office, announcing, among other things, a 30-day travel ban on 26 European countries, many fans flocked to social media to share their upset.

Why not put it online at 9pm EST so people can still see the entire episode at the scheduled time? The show was off for months and now we won't even get the full episode live.— Kimma (@Kimma_S) March 12, 2020
