SEAL Team: Can it go on without David Boreanaz?

There is speculation David Boreanaz, a.k.a Jason Hayes, in SEAL Team is destined to exit this season. Can the show survive without him though?

The SEAL Team writers are really doing a number on Jason. Over the course of the last few episodes we’ve seen him go down a path that could start the beginning of something that he cannot come back from.

Irritable, angry, unpredictable, and irrational. Something big is clearly coming for the character.

Some fans, and I will take this moment to point out this is nothing but speculation right now, believe it is the beginning of the end for David Boreanaz’s character Jason. The idea being that he will eventually make a decision that leads to a costly error; an error that will either see him be killed off or ejected from the Navy.

Thing is, can the show keep on going without the character?

Well, being brutally honest, it’s a yes and no from us.

SEAL Team has done an amazing job flushing out the other characters. So much so that we already have a deep connection with all of them right now. So, if Jason Hayes was to be killed off or asked to leave Bravo Team, and ultimately, SEAL Team, there is still enough storylines from Sunny, Ray, Clay, and Lisa to focus on.

So, from that point of view, yes, it can go on without him.

However, while the SEAL Team writers have done a great job establishing the other characters, those characters all center around Jason in one way or another. He is effectively the glue that keeps them all together. So, him leaving would make it difficult for them to stick together and keep their individual storylines going.

So, from that point of view, no, it can’t go on without him.

The best solution would be to have whatever the writers have planned for Jason to end in such a way that Jason does not exit the show. That would be the safest solution and one I am sure you would all like to see play out; rather than have him leaving. I know that’s what we want.

What do you think? If David Boreanaz was to exit the series, could it carry on without him? Drop comment just below sharing your thoughts.
