Review - Leverage Season 2 Episode 12 The Zanzibar Marketplace Job

Mark Sheppard made another appearance as Sterling and unfortunately didn't get much screen time. He's delightful when he's doing something, so I would like to have seen him do more. I loved the kicker at the end when he's offered a job at Interpol after taking credit for the recovery of the Fabergé egg. If he's back next time with an army full real law enforcement, he could be big trouble.

Nate's ex-wife Maggie (Kate Marichett) is in a Russian jail, so the team comes and saves her after Sterling shows up. There are some great twists like who the real villain is and the episode was paced very well. At the end of the episode, Kate has warmed considerably to Nate, but figures out he is still drinking. They made huge progress in the episode, so maybe Nate will fix himself up next time they meet.

Sophie made a very brief appearance, telling the team about the Zanzibar Marketplace. Nate comes in and Hardison quickly closes the laptop. I wonder how he'll react when he finds out they've been talking to Sophie the whole time. I don't know what the deal is, but Gina Bellman looked very stiff and talked sluggishly.

Score: 9.1/10
