Strike Back Season 2 Episode Details Released

British action thriller Strike Back just kicked off its second season this month on Cinemax. Season 2 follows Damian Scott and Michael Stonebridge headed to South Africa to fight a warlord who attacked a British embassy and kidnapped a British diplomat. 

Cinemax has released synopses for September's episodes, giving us a glimpse at where the series will be heading over the next four episodes. Without further ado, here they are: 

            Episode #15

            Debut: FRIDAY, SEPT. 7 (10:00-10:50 p.m. ET/PT)

            Other CINEMAX playdates: Sept. 7 (11:30 p.m.), 8 (9:00 p.m., 11:45 p.m.), 9 (noon), 10 (11:40 p.m.), 11 (12:15 a.m.) and 12 (8:00 p.m.)

            After stealing the nuclear triggers from Stonebridge (Philip Winchester) and Scott (Sullivan Stapleton) in remote Algeria, Knox’s (Charles Dance) task man Karl Matlock (Vincent Regan) and sniper Jessica Kohl (Natalie Becker) resurface in a seemingly unrelated Capetown kidnapping. Section 20 discovers interesting information about Peter Evans (Paul Freeman), the victim’s father, who has mysteriously flown to Capetown. A new third party interferes with the mission and both Scott and Stonebridge make costly mistakes.

            Directed by Julian Holmes; written by Richard Zajdlic.

            Episode #16

            Debut: FRIDAY, SEPT. 14 (10:00-10:50 p.m.)

            Other CINEMAX playdates: Sept. 14 (11:30 p.m.), 15 (9:00 p.m., 11:45 p.m.), 16 (1:30 p.m.), 17 (midnight), 18 (12:05 a.m.) and 19 (8:00 p.m.)

            Stonebridge and Scott confide in each other about their mistakes – Stonebridge’s desire for revenge on Craig Hanson (Shane Taylor), who has appeared in Capetown, and Scott’s connection with Rebecca (Lyne Renée), a Mossad agent tracking their case, but with very different orders from theirs. Knox takes Evans to a secret facility, where he reveals how he plans to make Africa a world power. Stonebridge befriends Knox’s idealistic daughter, Ava (Olivia Grant), who runs their foundation and weapons decommissioning program.

            Directed by Julian Holmes; written by Richard Zajdlic.

            Episode #17

            Debut: FRIDAY, SEPT. 21 (10:00-10:50 p.m.)

            Now working covertly without South African government permission and with limited resources, the team looks for a reason Knox would break opposition political leader Walter Lutulu (Eamonn Walker) out of a Zimbabwe prison. They try to track him through his respected activist daughter, Lilian (Tracy Ifeachor), as authorities from the currentpolitical regime also look for her.  A familiar face offers his unique skills to Knox, who uses his government influence to apply pressure to Section 20.

            Directed by Michael Bassett; written by John Simpson.

            Episode #18

            Debut: FRIDAY, SEPT. 28 (10:00-10:50 p.m.)

            Fueled by the Lutulu shooting, community unrest continues to spread through South Africa and north to Zimbabwe.  Trapped in an isolated police station, Stonebridge questions the shooter and looks for a safe escape. Scott and Lilian take her father to the hospital and are pursued by other assassins. Knox and a surprise ally discuss a new plan.

            Directed by Michael Bassett; written by John Simpson.
