    "The Grave Danger Job" was a really fun episode of Leverage. Usually my main gripe with this show is how the main plot quickly unravels and they end up taking the story in an odd direction. Well, that happened about halfway through tonight's episode, but it worked as the con quickly shifted from the scam at the funeral parlor to saving Hardison from Javier, a drug lord. When the plot is all screwball-esque like that, I can enjoy the show and it produced some solid moments including Parker displaying emotion, something not frequently on Leverage, and Nate actually not knowing what to do in a huge problem.

    Gets a 7/10 from me for moving quickly, but also being a little bit over the top. Why would Javier bury Hardison instead of stashing him somewhere?moreless

  • QUOTES (6)

    • Nate: Darlene Wickett and her sons are embezzling money from the dying and grieving. It's the oldest grift in the book.
      Sophie: And the cruelest. Even I never ran that one-it's tacky

    • Parker: Okay, she's a horrible human being, but she's got solid taste in home security.

    • Parker: How come I had to go to the embalming room, anyway?
      Eliot: It's 'cause Hardison's too scared to get in the body bag.
      Hardison: Hey, claustrophobia's is a very serious condition. I got a note from my doctor. You want to see it?

    • Nate: Okay, Darlene is running two scams at once.
      Sophie: Ooh, she's good--horrible, clearly, but skilled.

    • Parker: I feel that alive when I'm jumping off a building.
      Sophie: Well, maybe that's why they call it falling in love.

    • Hardison: Put me in a coffin. Here it comes to you. Got something for you. Boom. Evidence. Get it, get it, get it, get it.
      Nate: Is that really necessary?
      Hardison: The man put me in a coffin, Nate. A damn coffin.
      Nate: That's true.
