Cary Elwes opens the final season as Scott Roemer, CEO of Global Transit Airlines in Portland. Global started with military drones and expanded into cargo shipping. Roemer is a huge fan of Howard Hughes and covets The Spruce Goose. When one of his pilots dies, his widow and young daughter are absolutely decimated by the court. They turn to Hardison and Parker and tell them about the fraud and corner-cutting which caused the pilot's death. The team lines up a con so clever, even Roemer's mama would smile.

Not the very best episode
19 July 2012 | by (Bangalore) – See all my reviews

A good episode, but not the very best. And not a single hacking scene, that almost seems impossible in the beginning? And no jokes on how differently Parker thinks? There was no last minute complication that almost ends up killing everyone, but Nate somehow pulls it off. Where's the fun stuff that makes Leverage what it is?

The story picked up for this episode was only-okay. I personally did not like the ending. Especially the part where they fool the mark that he's flying an airplane when he's actually not. Moreover, the mark is an aviation expert, and don't you think he would know if it's a simulation and not a real flight? Hardison is good, but not that good :)

Looking forward for some more awesome episodes \m/
