As the first season of Cinemax's testosterone-filled original series Strike Back winds down, the action is just heating up. Yesterday, the premium cable channel announced the show will return in 2012 for a second season, and today we bring you an exclusive clip from tonight's explosive episode. Scott (Sullivan Stapleton) and Stonebridge (Philip Winchester) receive unexpected help in a very unconventional way as they attempt to escape Hasani's compound with a group of hostages.

Check out the full episode Friday at 10/9c on Cinemax. Are you a fan of Strike Back?
