Recap / Leverage S 04 E 07 The Grave Danger Job

Team Leverage is taking down a funeral home running several different scams. Unfortunately, one of those scams involves a cartel.

  • Buried Alive: As leverage against the team to get them more fake IDs, the cartel buries Hardison.
  • Cannot Spit It Out:
    • Parker tells Hardison to hold on because... he's her friend.
    • Later, when he's unburied, she just turns away, unable to say anything at all.
  • Description Cut: When talking to Parker, Sophie compares jumping off buildings to falling in love. Cut to Hardison.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: Sophie calls Darlene's scam of stealing from dying people and their families the cruelest grift in the book and says that even she never crossed that line.
  • Last Name Basis: Averted. Usually, the characters call Hardison by that name, his last name. Parker, however, tells Alec to hold on.
  • Single Tear: Hardison, on discovering he's been buried alive.
  • True Companions: If the boys' hugging when Hardison is unburied doesn't get to you, nothing will.
