Man, I love Leverage. And if you don’t, well, you’re not my friend anymore.
I had the great opportunity to be on a conference call with Leverage‘s Dean Devlin–the show’s executive producer, writer, and director (at least of tonight’s episode). Yes, we’re talking one of the masterminds behind the cons. He was really interesting and had some great things to say about the cast members, the plan of the show, and even what he was like growing up.
I can’t say that I’m entirely thrilled that tonight’s episode of Leverage is the season finale because that means there’s a good span of time with no episodes. But then again, I’m ecstatic to see a brand new episode, especially after last week’s cliffhanger. What do you expect to see tonight?
Well, keep guessing, and in the meantime, read Dean Devlin’s Q&A below!
So I wanted to ask you, the “Three Strikes Job” episode…it had a lot of twists and turns on its own and almost would have been a pretty satisfying ending on its own but then I see the preview for the second part and it looks like things get even more intense within the group. So what can you tell me about what the team is going to face during the season finale? – All Headline News
Well you know the theme of the whole second season was really about identity, in other words you know before the season – before season 1 began, these were all loners who all worked by themselves, who didn’t really have a sense of family. In season 1, they had come together but the question was could they hold themselves together?
And in season 2 really the question became well, if they’re not who they used to be before they got together, who are they now? And so the real exploration in this next episode is the culmination of these stories and a discovery really of who they are in relationship to each other, in who they’re going to be going forward.
You know in this season Sophie had to leave the team to find out who she was. Nate is trying to redefine himself and he’s – obviously he’s had struggles as he’s fallen off the wagon and trying to understand who he is. So this will all culminate in [tonight's] episode.
