  • Taking the big bad down

    This was a great way to conclude the season, there was a lot of humor and action after the more serious and heavy installment that was the Big Bang Job. The school teacher turned president was very cute throughout the episode and I found myself really routing for him and his almost naive view on his own corrupt government. The overall scheme was a bit all over the place but I loved how they incorporated the classics "We are gonna steal a country" and Hardison's "Age of the Geek" really coming through. Eliot continued on his tortured path to redemption and Parker provided some nice escape clauses. The end gave us some Nate/Sophia action that has been long time coming and has really opened up where the show is going to go. I can't wait for the next season!moreless

    The season finale of Leverage and tonight the gang tries to steal an election. Is this what you want to see from your Leverage season finale? The crew in a foreign country running around and participating in all of that hijinx? I did not think so.

    It still was a mildly entertaining episode and the black and white scenes where they show everything come together, those are always good, but as a whole this was just a disappointing show.

    Another 6/10 for me, just like in the first half, but I was disappointed as a whole with the show's temporary return.moreless

  • TRIVIA (0)

  • QUOTES (11)

    • Hardison: Last time anybody got this much press in the news, they had a nasty video out.
      Parker: What kind of video?
      Hardison: I-I-I don't know. I did not watch it. That would be wrong.

    • Nate: Now we've been in this situation before... when I pushed you into it.
      Parker: You were drunk. Super drunk.
      Nate: Thanks, Parker. I remember that.

    • Flores: Spencer saved my life... twice.
      Eliot: Once. And a half.
      Parker: How do you half-save someone's life?
      Eliot: 'Cause I was the one that was sent to kill him, so I figure that only counts as a half, right?
      Hardison: That actually makes sense.

    • Hardison: Well, look, Ribera arrested anybody else who stood a chance of taking him down. Seriously, look, these are the other candidates. Right here--drug dealer; drug dealer... drug addict; embezzler; embezzler, drug dealer, and drug addict; and my personal favorite... (brings up porn video)
      Sophie: Ew! Eww... what is that?
      Hardison: There's no secrets on the Internet. When will people learn this?

    • Vittori: Why me?
      Nate: Why you? Because... you are a man of the people and a leader of men. The people of San Lorenzo need you, because you can bring this country into the shining future that it deserves. The people of San Lorenzo--they need you! And I'm under contract. So let's get going.

    • Vittori: And this quote form my grandmother--"The truth is a light"--she never said that.
      Nate: Ah, well, maybe she will.
      Vittori: But she's dead.
      Sophie: Oh well, then, there's no way to know that she didn't say it, is there?

    • Sophie: Nate, I have to say, of all the deceitful, unprincipled, corrupt things I've done in my life, nothing is as bad as...
      Nate: Politics.
      Sophie: I can't even say it.

    • Nate: Don't think of it as a lie. Think of your engagement to Rebecca as a campaign promise. You tell people you're gonna marry her, and when you became president, mm, you don't.
      Vittori: How is a campaign promise different than a lie?
      Nate: It's complicated.

    • Moreau: I'm so done with you.
      Nate: And I'm done with you, Moreau. You know, for all that blood and corruption that you deal in, well, I've seen your like a hundred times. You think that because of all your money, that the entire world has to play by your rules. You're just another bastard in a suit.
      Moreau: So? Then what are you?
      Nate: I'm a thief. Thieves don't win elections, we steal them.

    • Nate: Yeah, you have every right to be proud.
      Sophie: I am. I'm proud. You know, we didn't just con someone, we built something.
      Nate: Well, we did subvert democracy.
      Sophie: Uggh--eggs, omelets.

    • (as Parker hauls out a crate)
      Hardison: Geez. What have you got up in here, Parker--some of Moreau's gold bars?
      Parker: Hey, you got your souvenirs, I got mine.
