In "The Worst of Conditions", Jason took a leave of absence following the death of his wife in order to take care of his children, but returned to duty at the end of "Say Again Your Last" after Master Chief Adam Seaver was killed in action. As seen in "Say Again Your Last", Master Chief Hayes is a highly-decorated Navy SEAL whose awards and decorations include two Silver Stars, the Bronze Star, and two Purple Hearts; during the same episode, it is mentioned that he has been in the Navy almost 20 years and a member of Bravo Team for nearly half that.

  • Jessica Paré as Officer Amanda "Mandy" Ellis,[11] Bravo Team's CIA liaison.
  • Neil Brown Jr. as Senior Chief Special Warfare Operator Raymond "Ray" Perry, Jason's most trusted friend and the longest tenured member of the team.[11] At the end of Season 1, he was reassigned to Green Team but returned to Bravo in "The Worst of Conditions" at Jason's request during his leave of absence.
  • A. J. Buckley as Special Warfare Operator Sonny Quinn, a loyal but sometimes volatile SEAL who is at his best in firefights and prefers them over a leadership position.[11]
