After a week off, "Strike Back" returns with a vengeance Sept. 6--James Leatherby's vengeance. The former Special Forces hero who is now a somewhat crazed terrorist-for-hire is forced on a detour when Section 20 launches a mission to rescue Ester (Amy-Leigh Hickman), the teenage daughter of possible double agent Leo Kamali (Zubin Varla). As you can see in the exclusive clip below, Leatherby only gets angrier when he hears from Col. Philip Locke (Robson Green), who taunts Leatherby by reminding him he once had been captured by Saddam Hussein's "weekend warriors" in Iraq.

If anyone knows how intense and personally bizarre the memorabilia craze can be, it's Blackhawks players. Especially after winning two Stanley Cups in four seasons. Although they may be used to being asked to sign their sweaters and equipment by now, sometimes they are caught off guard by eerie requests. RedEye caught up with several players (and one team legend) at the Blackhawks Convention this weekend and asked about the weirdest thing they've autographed. Bryan Bickell "Maybe a jock.
