To get “Strike Back” fans geared up for this week’s episode of the Cinemax action drama, here are two clips for the show.
The top video is being shown exclusively by The Oklahoman.
A summary provided by Cinemax of the episode, airing at 9 p.m. Friday, Aug. 24, is as follows:
After a personal tragedy, Stonebridge (Philip Winchester) applies for a transfer back to Section 20. While the team remains concerned about his mental state, Scott (Sullivan Stapleton) encourages them to allow Stonebridge back into the unit.
Tracking the missing nuclear triggers to Niger, the team believes that a radical religious leader may have malicious plans to use or sell them. They raid a compound in Niamey and discover another party with interest in the region and ties to Scott’s past. Believing that courier Othmani (Said Taghmaoui) has the triggers, they track him as he tries to leave Niger through the northern desert, where he is captured by a nomadic group led by Markunda (Laetitia Eido). Stonebridge and Scott are airdropped into the desert to negotiate.
Directed by Paul Wilmshurst; written by James Dormer.
