You may have heard of the action miniseries Strike Back, now showing in between Alien Sex Files parts 4 and 5 on Cinemax. If you haven’t, here’s a quick synopsis of episode 5, which premiered last night on Friday, September 16:
“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.'”
