One of Christian Kane's many talents is showcased when Eliot works a musical con. This is appropriate, since Eliot is the only one who gets why the songbird client, Kaye Lynn, dealt with the thuggish country music producer, Mitchell Kirkwood (Jon Schneider) at all. Parker is sporting more skirts for her casual wear; Sophie is the one with punk blue clip-on hair weave and Terminator glasses. As she goes rock and roll, Nate goes country. Eliot is a genuine hottie, Kenneth Crane (whether one likes lite country or not.) Hardison and Parker must grab the digital masters. Will Eliot follow a new star with Kaye Lynn, to be a part of the next Johnny and June? Written by LA-Lawyer

Did You Know?


While describing Kirkwood to Nate, Kaye Lynn compares him to the devil and references the Charlie Daniels Band song "The Devil Went Down to Georgia". See more »


"In the song that is the centerpiece of this episode, there is a flaw in the imagery. A new moon is completely dark, so it can never shine in a window." ... This is poetic license on the part of the lyricist, illustrating something that is felt rather than seen, just like the people in the song are a million miles apart/right next to you. See more »


Parker: I don't think I am being strange enough.
Nathan Ford: I doubt that.

*Spoilers inside* Hidden tailed showcased for Eliot/Christian
4 November 2016 | by See all my reviews

I love this episode. There are several reasons why. First the guest star is John Schneider. Hello Bo Duke in the house and he is a wonderful singer/actor also. Second @ChristianKane01 aka #EliotSpencer gets to show off his wonderful singing voice. I didn't watch Leverage till the first of this year. Thats when I noticed Christian Kane. This episode had me researching who was actually singing. When I discovered Christain was also a very talented singer I became a Kaniac that day. I have to say that Parker/Beth done a wonderful job is this episode also. I love how they also done a word play on Christian's name for his character he plays and a play on the Kaniacs also. Its a wonderful episode and truly one of my top 5!
