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?
