Storyline

Agent Todd McSweeten is legacy FBI; his father, Peter, was the Agent-in-Charge of the infamous D.B. Cooper case. He was Chief of Portland FBI (losing a promotion to Seattle when he failed to solve Cooper.) Todd brings in the team-- having realized their real function--because Peter is dying. The Leverage team re-enacts the events of 1971, with Nate as Peter McSweeten and the team learns the former Chief's mantra: give compassion and respect to all men, even criminals. Is it possible Peter knew more about D.B. Cooper than he ever publicized? Written by LA-Lawyer

one of my top 5 episodes of Leverage *SMALL SPOILERS*
4 November 2016 | by (SW Virginia) – See all my reviews

I really enjoyed this episode. I loved the story line and how the story of DB Cooper was told. I have seen a lot of DB Cooper investigation shows and this was really an excellent story of what possibly could have happen. I love the dynamics between Christian and Aldis on screen, it was a great change up of having Christian and Tim work together on this episode. It was great. The flash backs to the 70's where nicely done. I grew up watching the A-Team and this show is a modern day A- Team or Robin Hood type show. I have heard the cast say in interviews they were Robin Hoodliums. I absolutely love this series and I love the cast and everyone that worked to put this show together. I know it has ended but I highly enjoy watching is every Sunday on @ionTV!
