'Strike Back' S. 3 Ep. 2 preview: Stonebridge is shot!

One thing about our heroes in "Strike Back:" They never seem to get hit by the millions of bullets being fired at them. But that changes in tonight's episode of the Cinemax series. As you can see in the exclusive preview clip here, Sgt. Michael Stonebridge (Philip Winchester) takes a bullet to the chest.

Ouch!

Is he going to survive? I'm not saying (but somebody dies).

The episode, which I'll call "Miguel Gomez's Revenge" since the writers and/or producers don't see fit to title their episodes, premieres at 9 p.m. CT Aug. 16. It picks up pretty much where we left off last week, with Section 20 operatives running around Bogota, Colombia, trying to recapture Leo Kamali (Zubin Varla), moneyman for the terrorist they are after, Al-Zuhari.

If you remember a few months back I posted a "Strike Back" Recon video in which Sullivan Stapleton, who plays Damien Scott, took us behind-the-scenes of what turns out to be this episode as the gang robs the Bogota Stock Exchange. (I've included that video below as well, and two other preview clips from this episode.)

It's fitting Stapleton did the Recon piece, as Scott is the guy who comes up with the brilliant idea to enter the Bogota Stock Exchange with the help of drug lord Miguel Gomez's (Raoul Trujillo) brother.

As you will see, Gomez does exact just a little revenge (after he takes off the guys' shirts--woot!). Anyway, watch below.

Meanwhile, Rachel Dalton (Rhona Mitra) looks for the source that exposed her team in Beirut, but discovers a surprising ally and a piece of Al-Zuhari's plan.

The episode was written by Simon Burke, Tim Vaughan and Michael J. Bassett, who also directed.
