The episode was phenominal all the way around. I even liked Sophie, who can sometimes annoy me. But I liked how Eliot and Sophie were able to bond and find mutual ground.
Christian Kane can seriously do no wrong, especially since I found out he does most of his own stuns and fighting scenes. It clearly shows the boy works out. He did such a great job in the episode. He can slide easily into the different roles Eliot plays: fighter, friend, hero, etc. Christian is the highlight of Leverage, for me.
And then there's Dark Blue, which I find myself completely obsessed with. First of all the casting is superb: Dylan, Omari, Nicki, and Logan have fantabulous chemistry, and I love the darker cop shows. This show reminds me a lot of Fastlane, but without the humor. And I'm sensing a serious vibe between Dean (Logan) and Jaimie (Nicki). I don't careif they get together romantically or if their relationship evolves into some big brother/little sister thing: I just love seeing their scenes.
