Exclusive 'Strike Back' Episode 8 Preview

Michael Stonebridge and Damien Scott confront Latif's spy while being held as prisoners in Kosovo.
By Blair Marnell
October 07, 2011

After learning that MI6 Agent John Allen (Adrian Rawlins) was the British intelligence officer leaking intel to the dangerous terrorist, Latif (Jimi Mistry), Section 20 sent Michael Stonebridge (Philip Winchester) and Damien Scott (Sullivan Stapleton) into Kosovo to rescue Allen from a heroin kingpin named Hasani (Mel Raido) had kidnapped Allen and other European Union officials while demanding the release of his cousin, Agim Rama (Zsolt Nagy).

Scott and Stonebridge played their plans close to the vest after narrowly keeping Rama alive before the hostage exchange. However, an unknown sniper killed Rama before the hostages were safe, forcing Stonebridge and Scott to flee with the hostages in jeep that quickly ran out of gas. To make matters worse, the KFOR peacekeeping force and its American representative, Donoghue (Peter O'Meara) had seemingly abandoned them in enemy territory.

To secure a vehicle, Scott and Stonebridge took out a heroin factory before Donoghue and his troops caught up to them and the newly freed hostages. Unfortunately, Donoghue was working with Hasani and he turned them all over into his custody.

In our exclusive preview clip from the eighth episode of "Strike Back," Stonebridge and Scott decide to interrogate Allen about his connection to Latif while they still have a chance. And what Allen has to say in response quickly catches them off guard...

For our second preview clip of the week, Scott and Stonebridge escort the freed hostages, Rob Bailey (Dorian Lough) and Mrs. Heath (Gillian Hanna) while searching for Dana Van Rijin (Annabelle Wallis) and Allen.

And in our final clip of the week, Latif makes his presence felt as he makes an exchange with Allen as Scott and Stonebridge attempt to close in on his location.

Don't miss the eighth episode of "Strike Back" this Friday night on Cinemax!

Strike Back Episode 8 Preview: Scott Gets Brutal (+2 Clips and Still Gallery)
By Bags H. : October 7, 2011

We’re nearing the conclusion of the freshman season of Strike Back on Cinemax. With Season 2 on the way, it’s time to start wondering whether or not the suspected security leak inside Section 20 will be revealed by the season finale.

I’m hoping it’s not Maj. Oliver Sinclair (Rhashan Stone). He showed off his worth in the Tahir (Adewale Akinnuoye Agbaje) mission so I would hate to find out that he was working for the other side. However, he’s been questioning Scott’s judgment a little too much of late, often bringing up criticism to Col. Eleanor Grant’s (Amanda Mealing). You have to wonder if he’s not trying to set the team up for failure. Grant’s (Amanda Mealing) vendetta with Latif (Jimi Mistry) seems genuine. Also, she’s got a pass after she took out Daniel Connolly (Liam Cunningham) in episode 4. So, if there is a leak, I’m going with Sgt. Julia Richmond (Michelle Lukes).

We’ve got two new clips from Episode 8, which takes off right after Scott (Sullivan Stapleton) and Stonebridge (Philip Winchester) were betrayed by US forces.

[Possible Spoilers]
This clip shows off the return of Latif as well as some down and dirty Scott action:

In Episode 8:
While held hostage, Scott and Stonebridge question undercover MI-6 agent John Allen (Adrian Rawlins) about his dealings with Latif. They receive unexpected help when they try to escape Hasani’s (Mel Raido) compound with the hostages, but get separated after an assault on a bridge. Stonebridge goes MIA and Scott tries to rescue the rest of the hostages from another of Hasani’s facilities. Guest stars include David Haig, Annabelle Wallis and Gillian Hanna.

This second clip, returns us to Section 20:

Strike Back Renewed for 2012 – Episode 8 is Classic Adventure Story
Thompson on Hollywood
David Chute is happy to report that Strike Back has been re-upped.

Cinemax action hit Strike Back will be back to strike again in 2012, powered by strong ratings and a growing cadre of passionate fans – including many who held mock funerals when 24 was canceled.

Actually I made that last past up, but as the drive to prevent terrorist mastermind Latif (Jimi Mistry) from setting off a WMD races toward its finale, the state of suspended animation that viewers settle into between installments is strikingly familiar. My prediction is that SB, too, will be an even bigger hit on DVD than on first broadcast, with viewers devoting entire lost weekends to the adventures of Section 20 operatives Scott and Stonebridge.

And just to make sure we don’t rest too easy after hearing this news, a warning note is sounded in the official press release: “Due to plot spoilers in upcoming episodes, the cast of season two will be announced at a later date.” This could be a fake out, of course, designed just to keep us on edge, but I wouldn’t count on it.

One advantage that Strike Back certainly has over 24: it isn’t locked into a format that dictates the rhythm of every installment. Episode 8 is a welcome change up, with the straight-ahead structure of a classic adventure story – of a Western, in fact, in which two veteran wilderness scouts escort a group of stranded pioneers through injun territory to the safety of the nearby fort.

In a story set in ultra-corrupt post-Soviet Kosovo, though, it’s a little harder to tell the white hats from the black. The cavalry officers who come riding up on their noble ATVs may not want to rescue you after all. They may be looking to slice out your liver for sale to the highest bidder. The “Dexter meets X-Files sequence in which in which a group of mercenary surgeons gear up to extract salable body parts is an all-too plausible horrorshow.

The two leads were impressively coordinated partners last time, but now they’ve been separated and Episode 8 is a Damien Scott special, the one we’ve been waiting for, in which a willowy blonde touches him so deeply that he decides not to go to bed with her. Scott also comes a step or two closer to unraveling the conspiracy that that he caught wind of in Iraq, the secret that got him cashired. We’ve gathered in past episodes that his troubles were closely related to the weapons Latif plans to unleash in episodes 9 and 10.

The finale will mark the return to the show of the excellent director Daniel Percival (Dirty War) who in the first few episodes set Strike Back’s distinctive tone—which could best be described as hell-bent with heart, in which ferocious action has dramatic significance and is undertaken for a reason.
