In the episode “SEAL Team Deep Six,” Madeline Scott (Rachelle Lefevre) and the Injustice Defense Group continue their quest to free the wrongly imprisoned and ensure justice is served.
This week the accused is Rachel Clarke (Bess Rous), a navy seal candidate accused of murdering the son-in-law of the commander of the base. It seemed that Rachel was destined to become one of the first female SEAL officers of the base before her conviction. She believed that because she was a woman the male SEAL officers look upon her differently from their fellow male officers. And to the male officers, Rachel was just a woman who snapped because her romantic interest in the officer she was accused of killing wasn’t returned as she’d like. A simple case of ‘Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned’ right? Wrong. Rachel was framed for the murder and it was up to The Injustice Defense Group to prove it.
In order to stop Madeline and Easy (Russell Hornsby) from asking questions of the base, they are arrested for trespassing on the facility. Any charges are quickly dropped though. As The Injustice Defense Group’s investigation continued, it was revealed that Rachel and murdered officer Moore weren’t involved romantically, they were friends. And it seemed that Moore was struggling with nightmares relating to a shooting in the Fahdi District. The Taliban were alleged to be responsible but in truth, it was the SEAL team who panicked when they heard what they thought was gunfire and ended up opening fire, killing a family and an old man who was a witness to the shooting. And because the SEAL team were afraid Moore’s guilty would cause him to confess to the truth about the shooting, he was killed to shut him up. And blaming Rachel also took care of their female SEAL problem. Once the truth comes out, Rachel is acquitted.
In other episode news, we saw the return of Nikki Castro (Tiffany Dupont) to Bodie’s (Vincent Kartheiser) life. Let me just say, I’m not a fan of this pairing so I didn’t care Castro came back to give whatever they have (no strings attached sex/relationship) another try. She even introduced Bodie to her nephew, who she’s taking care of for her drug addict sister to see how he felt about children.
Bodie’s personal life wasn’t thing only non-case aspect of the episode. Wren (Candice Coke) has been released on parole and she and Madeline made up for lost time. She also became “the new ex-com law clerk” (Bodie’s words) at The Injustice Defense Group. Violet (Nikki M. James) was surprised best friend Madeline never told her about Wren being Maddie’s girlfriend. Was it Madeline’s responsibility to reveal to her friends and colleagues about her love life?
Finally, we got a major clue regarding the Rosemary Lynch murder case. It seemed Rosemary (as well as some other girls) hung out at this shack on Sparrow Ridge and appeared to be connected to a cult. If this is true, was Rosemary murder cult related?
