'Strike Back' Ep. 17 preview gallery: Knox makes his move
The crap really hits the fan for Section 20 in this week's episode of "Strike Back." Now working covertly in South Africa after the government demanded the team leave the country, Section 20 discovers that Conrad Knox (Charles Dance of "Game of Thrones") is behind the prison break of Zimbabwe opposition leader Walter Lutulu (guest star Eamonn Walker). They try to track Lutulu through his activist daughter, Lilian (Tracy Ifeachor), but as tends to happen for Section 20, things go awry. Episode 17, the first of two directed by Michael Bassett, does a brilliant job of showing just how businessmen can influence governments, not to mention how the CIA and other intelligence agencies manipulate the politics in foreign lands. The episode, airing at 9 p.m. Sept. 21, is packed with shocking power plays, betrayals and actions. Don't miss it.
Remember the video of Sullivan Stapleton driving the van into a stunt man I shared with you at the beginning of the season? This is the episode in which it appears. You can watch that video again in the gallery.
