Review - Leverage Season 2 Episode 11 The Bottle Job

Nate lives over a bar? Wasn't he an alcoholic? And didn't Hardison buy the whole building? As long as you could accept that Nate lives right above his childhood (he went with his father) bar, the episode was a breeze to get through.

Under a two-hour time constraint, the team worked fast and furiously, conning Doyle, a crooked loan shark (oxymoron?) as fast as they could. Tara cozies up to him while Nate steals his money--until Nate takes a drink, and we know where that goes. This leads to a poker game with a couple guys in the back. The reveal in the end shows that the guys are actually cops, and are ready to bust Doyle.

Along the way, Hardison pretends to be a weather reporter, Parker talks to a safe, and Elliot beats up some guys. Tara is a replacement for Sophie and she's doing well. Since she won't be on the show permanently, there probably won't be anything substantial happening, but we learned an interesting tidbit that she learned cryptology.

Score: 8.9/10
