Strike Back: Project Dawn (2011): S02E10


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.


As Grant interrogates Latif, Section 20 spots two known terrorists arriving in Budapest.

Scott and Stonebridge catch the first, who detonates the VX container placed inside his body in a tram; Scott and Stonebridge evacuate the area.

On their return, Latif has sent a strike team to the Section base, and they ambush it; Latif escapes and captures Grant, along with Akmal Ramiz (Silas Carson), a Pakistani presidential candidate from the summit.

Stonebridge is assigned to identify the second suicide bomber in a protest crowd, while Scott follows Grant’s GPS. Latif forces Grant or Ramiz to confess to “Operation Trojan Horse”, which dealt with planting VX in Iraq, setting up Porter and framing Scott that lead to his dishonourable discharge.

Stonebridge stops the second bomber, but Latif remotely activates the canister; Stonebridge is able to remove and disarm it.

Meanwhile, Latif kills Ramiz after Grant wishes to confess. He later realises that Scott is nearby and takes Grant hostage. However Grant, no longer wishing to live with her guilt, forces Latif to shoot the VX canister she has in her possession, killing them both.

Scott, now knowing he could clear his name, decides to burn the file instead, believing Grant did give him a second chance.

Stonebridge decides to leave.
