'Strike Back: Origins' preview: Porter on the run

John Porter and Felix Masuku are on the run in the fourth episode of "Strike Back: Origins," debuting at 9 p.m. CST Nov. 11 on Cinemax.

As you can see in the exlcusive preview above, Colonel Tshuma (David Harewood) employs an elite tracker to pursue the pair after Porter (Richard Armitage) busted Masuku (Shaun Parkes) out of prison in last week’s episode. Porter, assigned to kill Masuku, instead believes that he has information that could help Section 20 uncover a leak.

Section 20 agent Layla Thompson (Jodhi May) is stuck in Africa, trying to decide who she can trust—Porter or her boss, Hugh Collinson (Andrew Lincoln). Back in London at Section 20 headquarters, Collinson begins to doubt the mission when he discovers new information.

You may recognize Parkes from his roles as cameraman A.J. Poulain in ABC's "The River" and Harewood from his role of David Estes in "Homeland."

The episode was written by Jed Mercurio and Alan Whiting, and directed by Daniel Percival.

    From the second I walked through the convention hall doors, I could only really see about 4 feet in front of me, and poorly at that. A DJ was blasting an EDM remix of Kanye's "All Day." I had arrived at the Vape League Electronic Cigarette Convention in suburban Rosemont.
