'Strike Back' S.3 Ep.3 preview: 'Call me'

Section 20 faces one of its most sociopathic foes ever in the latest episode of "Strike Back," debuting at 9 p.m. CT Aug. 23 on Cinemax.

Former military man James Leatherby (Dougray Scott) isn't someone you want to mess with, but Major Rachel Dalton (Rhona Mitra) is on a mission after the murder of Baxter (Liam Garrigan) to find international terrorist Al-Zuhari. She forces an asset to work with her team in Beirut to get a lead on Leatherby, and as you can see in the exclusive sneak peek above, they find him.

Stonebridge (Philip Winchester) engages with Leatherby, who like Stonebridge has British Special Forces experience. He's a former Special Air Service operative while Stonebridge is Special Boat Service soldier, so Leatherby's turn to the dark side has Stonebridge curious.

Pay close attention to their conversation. Is Leatherby hitting on Stonebridge?

Any hint of Leatherby's soft side disappears in the next clip, which shows a meeting between Leatherby and Leo Kamali (Zubin Varla), who is working with Section 20 to catch Al-Zuhari—at least for the moment. Stonebridge and Scott (Sullivan Stapleton) chase Leatherby in a tense action sequence in which a car explodes. The final clip, we go behind-the-scenes of how they filmed that explosion.

The episode, which I'm going to call "Meant for Hell," was written by James Dormer and directed by Julian Holmes.
