Review - Leverage Season 2 Episode 9 The Lost Heir Job

No more Leverage until next year. :( No worries, there are 6 more episodes left and TNT renewed the show for 15 episodes. Hopefully Sophie will be back by then, but then again, the new character played by Jeri Ryan seems to be a fill-in. Gina Bellman is/was pregnant, I can't find any relevant information, but I'm sure that's why the writers started to phase Sophie out as the season progressed. She appears once in the beginning where Nate appeals for her to come back. She doesn't come back so we'll have Tara Carlyle until then.

The development of the episode was very interesting starting from the almost babying of the client by Tara who is posing as a lawyer. We don' know she is another grifter until the end, so this is perplexing and a little naive is start with. The client wanted money some old guy promised for her charity and his lawyer stole it all. Nate also poses as a lawyer which was fun to watch.

The other characters were in supporting roles as Nate and Tara carried the weight. The thing I love about this show is that even if certain people aren't feature as much, they also have a moment to shine, and we definitely get that with this episode. I loved the dialogue between Nate and Tara and I'm really looking forward to seeing Jeri Ryan again.

Score: 9.3/10

Yeah I couldn't find any info about the pregnancy either. When she actually appears during the episode they make sure to show only her back and some closer shots of her face. I would like to see her back soon.
