Strike Back: Origins Full Episode Guide

  • Season Finale. A deadly game of Russian roulette ends with Porter and Baxter blasting their way into the desert, with Sharq's men in pursuit. In London, Collinson works to extricate the pair. Meanwhile, the last surviving victim in Porter's ill-fated 2003 Iraq rescue dies, leaving Thompson with ballistic evidence that could finally ID his shooter.

  • On the heels of a suspicious friendly fire attack on U.S. forces, Porter is sent to Afghanistan to uncover the source of an encryption breach. The search leads him to Gerald Baxter, a former technical-support contractor with CIA ties who orchestrated a bombing that accidentally killed civilians in Iraq years ago, and disappeared after being diagnosed with PTSD.

  • With Colonel Tshuma's elite forces and a cunning Bushman tracker in hot pursuit, Porter and Masuku head towards the border of South Africa, where they evacuate a girls' orphanage that sits in harm's way and prepare for a possible last stand. Meanwhile, Collinson shares tragic news involving Porter's family back home, and learns who blew Thompson's cover.

  • Now working for Section 20 under Collinson, Porter heads to Zimbabwe, where Felix Masuku, a marksman with a Special Forces past, has been imprisoned for the attempted assassination of the President. Posing as a diamond dealer, Porter is arrested and ends up in the same high-security prison as Masuku, with orders to get him out at all costs.

  • Porter allows himself to be captured by Al Nazeri in order to make contact with Katie and As'ad. Though both he and Katie are beaten badly, Porter is able to escape with the help of As'ad, leading to a desert showdown with his terrorist pursuers--and a partial extraction that raises questions about Collinson's actions during the ill-fated rescue of Bratton years earlier.

  • Series Premiere. Exiled from the British Special Forces, John Porter resurfaces years later in hopes of rescuing a kidnapped journalist.
