I loved having Leverage back just because I love the show. It has more dark undertones then it used to,but I think its realistic and due to the amount of time theyve been playing robin hoods. They get deeper and deeper into things and there are definitely more repercussions being faced the longer they keep it up. Like this CIA development and how easy it was for their covers to be blown. I think the trick is to still keep the show just light and funny enough, healthy balance.

Loved seeing Hardison play frat boy,something poignant with him going undercover as something he would probably be if he had a normal life.I like him broadening his repetoire because it speaks to the family vibe, he&parker are like the kids and the others are always teaching the things,almost like leaving a legacy.The marine stuff was great,loved Eliots role.Hardison&Parker moments are always a plus as well.the case was a bit confusing and the con wasnt really explained well w/ the flashbacks.solid enough episode.

Loved the episode, but did you all catch the typo in the ep? Psychology was misspelled on a door, they put the Y before the S.

I'm surprised at all of you! Disliking this episode because of dark undertones. And the poster, how could any of you not mention absolute love for Eliot's role in this episode? Seeing him connect with the ex-marine, seeing him strategically break down the interrogator's tactics. And I'm glad that a character in a television series was "non-politically correct" enough to put an end to the "torture doesn't work" monologues we get from shows like Burn Notice and Criminal Minds all the time. So yeah, courtesy Eliot I give this episode two thumbs up.

I cannot disagree with the fact that it has gotten darker and more serious, but I still enjoy it. Speaking of lighter moments...
Jim G.- You missed what I considered to be one of the funnier exchanges:
Hardison: I'm getting some weird feedback...it's like a whumpa-whumpa.
Elliot: Wait. What do you mean? What kind of a whumpa-whumpa?
Hardison: I mean how many kinds are there?
Elliot: There's seven of them. Is it whumpa-pop whumpa-pop?
Hardison: Are you being serious right now?
Elliot: HARDISON!
Hardison: It's like a-a whumpa-tink whumpa tink.
Elliot: Alright, Nate, you need to get outta there!

Who knew there were seven kinds of whumpa sounds! I so missed this show.

Yea i get the feeling that there was a major writing/production change for this season too. Im not liking the darker tone that much either. but more importantly im not liking the fact that huge plot holes in main con are happening more frequently and significantly. There have already been a few significant ones this season and i gotta say im not liking the show as much as i used to
All in all i thought it was a fairly lackluster episode.

I also feel the show has gotten a little too dark. There wasn't enough light moments to balance out the drama. This episode had almost no humor.

I loved the interactions between Hardison and Parker. The subtlety of their budding relationship contrasts perfectly with Nate and Sophie's more tumultuous one.

I have noticed a more serious note to many of their jobs too Jeffrey, not sure if they got new writers or not... I actually enjoy that their roles have been overlapping some, but your right Hardison has been doing to much grifting and not enough hacking :)

Did they get a new group of writers? Not feeling Leverage at all this season. Ever since the rather droll ice mountain premiere it seems like its trying to become a more serious drama. It uses to be so fun and light. I hate this new direction. It doesnt fit the series or the actors at all. Also I'm done with Hardison playing grifter. That's
Sophie's job.
