Last week on "Strike Back," Sgt. Damien Scott (Sullivan Stapleton) and Sgt. Michael Stonebridge (Philip Winchester) followed the trail of Karl Matlock (Vincent Regan) and his partner, Jessica Kohl (Natalie Becker) after they kidnapped the daughter and grandson of Peter Evans (Paul Freeman), a nuclear scientist whom they intended to blackmail into building a nuclear device on behalf of their employer, Conrad Knox (Charles Dance).
While Section 20 eventually realized that Knox was their true enemy, both Scott and Stonebridge jeopardized the mission with their respective vices. Scott fell into the arms of a beautiful Mossad agent named Rebecca (Lyne Renée); who used the opportunity to slip a tracker on him. As for Stonebridge, he saw Craig Hanson (Shane Taylor), the man who killed his wife and Stonebridge literally abandoned Peter to chase down Hanson… giving Matlock the perfect opportunity to kidnap Peter.
Cinemax has provided us with an exclusive preview scene from this week's episode of "Strike Back," in which Scott tries to find common ground with Rebecca in the midst of their standoff. However, Rebecca may not be willing to bend the parameters of her mission to eliminate Peter.
In the second preview clip of the week, Section 20's commanding officer, Major Rachel Dalton (Rhona Mitra) chews out Scott and Stonebridge for their failure, as Scott is unable to adequately explain how Rebecca bugged him without exposing the fact that he slept with her.
And finally, the third clip finds Section 20 mounting a rescue mission as Stonebridge gets a second chance to take down Hanson. However, Hanson is ready for him this time…
