“EPISODE 5” Airs Friday, September 16 at 10:00 PM on CINEMAX
Written by Richard Zadjlic; Directed by Alex Holmes
After their previous trail went cold, Section 20’s next move is to track Latif’s (Jimi Mistry) weapons supplier, which leads them to Gerald Crawford (Iain Glen), a former British Royal Marine turned arms dealer. Once they snatch him, he agrees to help them only if they rescue his daughter Clare (Laura Haddock), an aid worker in the Sudan who is being held for ransom by a brutal militia leader Tahir (Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje). The team reluctantly works with a questionable government official as a middleman to set up the exchange. When Scott is recognized by a war zone reporter and old flame Maggie (Rachel Shelley), he discovers that the story she was investigating may be intertwined with the arms deal. At the exchange point, Tahir has a different idea of doing the deal “in good faith.”
Things continue to heat up for Section 20 on this week’s Strike Back. Iain Glen, Jorah Mormont on Game of Thrones, and Lost‘s Mr. Eko, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, guest star this week and both are in the next episode as well. This show continues to get more interesting and exciting, so be sure to tune in! Here’s an EXCLUSIVE to Pop Culture Zoo clip from the new episode!
