Strike Back: Project Dawn (2011): S02E02


Strike Back: Project Dawn, as it is known in the United Kingdom is a ten-part British-American action television serial and is the second series of Strike Back.

However, the only cast member to return from the first series was Richard Armitage in the first episode.

The main cast for the series includes Philip Winchester, Sullivan Stapleton, Amanda Mealing, Eva Birthistle, Michelle Lukes and Rhashan Stone.


Scott and Stonebridge evade the terrorists and find Mahmood, who turns out to be a woman, Iman Zubedah (Sasha Behar).

Zubedah reveals she knows the location of hidden weapons of mass destruction (WMD) that were to be planted in Iraq to vindicate the war.

After Scott is recaptured and taken to the lobby with the other hostages, Zubedah is escorted out by the terrorist leader, assumed to be Latif (Scott earlier admits that he never actually saw him). Stonebridge rescues Zubedah and kills the leader.

When the Indian military storm the hotel, Scott fails to stop the terrorists from dropping a bomb, but Stonebridge arrives in time to catch it.

Zubedah is later brought to Pakistani intelligence officer Jamal Ashkani (Mistry), who is revealed to be Latif; Zubedah is later found dead.

After Scott is assigned to Section 20, he reveals to Stonebridge that Porter’s code was directed at Scott; Porter no longer trusted Section 20, believing it is embroiled in a conspiracy involving Latif, the WMDs, his capture, and Scott’s dishonourable discharge.

Scott and Stonebridge decide to investigate the possible corruption.
