Season Two of Leverage: Reunions, Revenge, Relapses!
Season two of Leverage premieres tonight on TNT.
The first season concluded with team members going their separate ways, following a heist gone awry. However, star Timothy Hutton told TV this summer will include a reunion for the main characters, along with other interesting developments...
On Nate's vices: Nate has successfully stopped drinking, we come to learn, but there might be a possible relapse as the season goes on. It's a very, very difficult road he's on. And certain other vices come up and take the place, usually in the form of, not necessarily an actual drug, but more along the lines of how he gets back at people he thinks have been pretty sleazy characters. He acts out in very vindictive ways... People are going to enjoy seeing the vindictive side of Nate.
On seeking revenge: A little over-revenge. Sometimes the Leverage team says to Nate, you know, we really don't need to go that far, Nate. It's okay. And he says no, we're going to bury this guy. They have to hold him back.
Overall take on season two: Theres's a lot more character play going on. You know, last year a lot of us, for some of the cons, would play other characters and do accents — what the writers like to call "hats." So this year we do a lot of infiltrating established institutions. One is a private school, for example, where we send away some of the people who work there and one of us becomes the headmaster for a week.
