Leverage seemed to be getting off track with some questionable episodes as of late, but this was definitely a step up from them. You had a Sophie storyline here, but it actually delivered,something that surprised even me.
James Frain guest starred, apparently that guy is contractually bound to appear on every TV show for the next 5 years.
Leverage was good here because they stuck to the con. They let the unique characters come out and show their distinct personalities because of what was happening. They did not try to shove them down the throats of people while they were watching, a problem they have often made in the past. That is why I think this episode was better.
