    Leverage "The Real Fake Car Job" Review: My Mother the Mussolini Car

    Sunday night's episode had neither high stakes or an abundance of humor, which made for a filler episode that strayed from both the devices that this show does best.

  • Episode Summary

    The team must convince a Wall Street con artist to break an immunity deal by luring him in using a fake antique car.

      This was an okay episode. The con was good. But the show was laking something.. not sure what. Was like the team was not together as a team.
    • The Real Fake Car Job

      It was a good con they were working on this week, a really hateable villain in Gabe Erickson, but then when the end of the episode turned into a shootout they lost me. Just a bad transition for the episode, one that had started off pretty well. Still not bad though and you should still watch it.
