After a Strike Back’s tragic two-part season 2 premiere, Stonebridge is back at Section 20. But, is Section 20 ready to have Stonebridge back on the team? In this new preview clip, we get a cursory look inside the soldier’s tormented psyche. Also, we get a look at the growing rivalry between Maj. Oliver Sinclair (Rhashan Stone) and Section 20’s new leader Rachel Dalton (Rhona Mitra).
Check out these action-packed stills from the Niger mission. It looks like we’ll be seeing more of Michelle Lukes in the field as Sgt. Julia Richmond.
So far, I’m enjoying Dalton’s addition to the team. Similar to Amanda Mealing as Col. Grant, Dalton’s hiding secrets. However, Dalton appears to be acting more out of her own agenda, using Section 20 as a means to an end.
Hopefully, her personal ambitions don’t end up driving a wedge between the existing team.
Strike Back Season 2 Episode 3 was written by James Dormer and directed by Paul Wilmshurst. Episode 14 (Season 2 Episode 4) will air directly afterwards for MaxGo subscribers.
About Episode 13:
After a personal tragedy, Stonebridge applies for a transfer back to Section 20. While the team remains concerned about his mental state, Scott 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.
