Warnings: Gif-heavy and spoilery!
Eliot looks like he's doing tai-chi more than a kungfu pose, lol
"Can your dog do that?"
"Oh, I know this one! It's the way that they shimmer on the deck of a billionaire's yacht in the moonlight..."

After a Parker-centric episode we have a sort-of Hardison-centric one, and the upcoming Studio Job's going to be all about Eliot, yay. Since season one was mostly Nate-centric I hope we're getting a Sophie episode soon to make it fair!
I thought this was a pretty okay episode, a little too far-fetched for my liking (hypnosis? seriously?) but then again, Leverage is all about suspension of belief and good old (sometimes campy) fun (+ brainwork)! I foresee this Nate/Hardison antagonism to be an undercurrent this season. So far we've seen the show explore Nate/Sophie, Parker/Hardison, Eliot/Hardison and a smidge of Parker/Sophie and Parker/Eliot.
Nate/Hardison is interesting because they have kind of a father-son relationship (in the sense that Nate/Sophie are like the parental figures of the crew). I found it strange, though, that before, Nate told Hardison that he could be anything he wanted if he put his mind to it. So why is he undermining Hardison's abilities now?
I like that the writers include bits of the cast's individual talents into the show and their characters, like Beth's photography and Christian's music. Are we gonna get to see Aldis's mad painting skillz anytime soon? Heh.
Speaking of talent.....I just want to say that I still don't get the decision to cast Elisabetta Canalis in the role of the ~Mysterious Italian~. I mean, I like the character; it's time Leverage got a major recurring antagonist (Sterling...sigh, woefully under-used) and a season-long story arc to tie the cons together.
The character is a great idea, but Canalis..? I'm sure there's no lack of eligible (and more experienced) actresses who'd suit this role. And her accent...I honestly cannot stand it. Maybe I'll warm up to Canalis like I did with Jeri Ryan as Tara last season...we'll see. For now, I'll continue being distracted by her acting (very tempted to include inverted commas) and accent.
WOW SO WORDY.
