I decided to start all over going back to season 1 cuz I love the show,miss almost all the episode of season 3 and was really interested with Hardison and Parker. The others took the cab with Parker driving while Nate and Sophie preferred taking a When the two were far away Nate turned to Hardison. Wait a second. I heard something during the beginning of Leverage "Girls' Night Out Job" that needs clarification. First, Hardison invited Parker.
Not that he wasn't always nice, but tonight he had a He lean over to give her a small peck on her lips and she gracefully accepted making the kiss slightly longer. Of course Nate being the overachiever deepen the kiss but after so long Sophie stopped him even through the taste of his lips was very addictive.
You are going to ruin my makeup. Plus I really want to go out. I didn't spent hours making myself beautiful just so you could enjoy it for a few minutes. She blushed "Okay, you know the con is finished right? There's no need to be so charming.
Nate just arched his eyebrow and grinned. Well, you really thought of everything. I'm not complaining, but why now? I mean, even if I now asked you your name, you job, your family, you'll have to lie to me. That's not who we are. So even if we missed the courting phase, and we went straight to whatever we are right now, you deserved a nice real date, and I'm sorry I didn't think about it before.
I'm not a dating person either. I would probably start closing up the moment you mention my past.
SPOILERS: Beth Riesgraf previews Parker and Hardison’s relationship
You finally opened up a bit this afternoon. The girl with the ball didn't just remind you of your father, did she? He liked it so much. He had finally learned how to catch properly before he got sick. Thinking that I could have done so much more with him.
My dad wasn't really a good father and I wanted to be better. I could tell from every time your eyes lit up when you talked about him while you were chasing me around Europe. You were a good father, don't ever doubt that" He slowly nodded and gave her a sad smile. Finally the waiter came with their orders. Yours seems interesting too. Nate took some pasta with his fork and softly blow on it he then brought it to her lips.
Nate gulped, enjoying the view. Eliot finally calls Hardison his friend after giving Chaos a Death Glare. Hardison is pissed that Eliot put him in danger, but Nate is pissed that Eliot didn't say this earlier, and starts to chew him out for it.
We've been chasing Moreau for six months, and you didn't tell us? Because I was trying- Nate: Maybe take my shot before- Nate: Because you're protecting him?
Last time I checked, that's my job. Sophie does a lot of work to help Vittori prepare to be the next president and is genuinely proud to see him so confident. Fairly understated, but this exchange: I have the media, I have the guns, I-I have the government.
You know what I have? I have a year-old genius with a smartphone and a problem with authority. You really never stood a chance. When figuring a way out, Parker is very insistent on taking the body with them, to Tear Jerker levels.
This is what we're supposed to do! We're supposed to get him back to his wife! Nate would do it, Sophie would do it, Hardison would do it I want to do the right thing! Related, Eliot's reassuring of the obviously upset Parker is equal parts tearjerking and heartwarming, especially since Eliot himself is clearly feeling down about being forced to leave the body behind.
His last words to his wife are incredibly sweet, made all the better when Eliot tells Parker, "You did it. You brought him back to her. Parker's handholding cuteness and Sheriff! Nate's dedication to the right thing and also his warbride Sophie, who else? It isn't even a question. Also, Eliot bonding with the mark's daughter throughout the episode, demonstrating his particular brand of gruff affection while teaching her how to win at the carnival games. When she's kidnapped he initially tries to keep her calm by telling her it's a security drill, but she sees through it and promises not to cry if he tells her the truth.
All right, this is not a drill.
The Art Of Dating, a leverage fanfic | FanFiction
These guys are very bad guys, the guys that took you, okay? But I'm coming for you, me, and I'm gonna find you, and I'm gonna bring you home.
Now, you tell me, does that sound like the truth? Earlier in the episode while the con was still going on, Parker switches out the mark's glasses with ones that Hardison modified with a webcam. When the mark first puts them on, Hardison has a clear view of Parker and you can almost see the hearts forming in his eyes.
They don't care about the con anymore. The phone call from Parker to Hardison, the hug the he and Eliot have It's a small moment, but as time starts to run out, Parker calls Hardison "Alec" while begging him not to leave her. Because he's her friend, and she needs him. Jim Frakkin' Sterling of all people gets one in "The Queen's Gambit Job" when he reunites with his daughter, explaining that he knew Nate could pull off the job he asked of him, even though that job was a secondary objective to distract from the real goal of re-obtaining his daughter.
He tells Nate as much. Specifically, in a nice reference back to the season two finale, he calls Nate the best thief he's ever known.
Also in that episode, Parker has to wear weighted boots to mimic the gait of the mark to access his vault.
When did them two decide to start dating? Help plz I love seeing them two
She has a breakdown when she gets frustrated practicing on Hardison's DDR pads with the voice taunting her: This limp, and these boots, I don't like them. They're weighing me down. That's how I survive. You slow me down, you kill me. You had to be quick cause you were alone.
If you get caught that's it. But you're not alone anymore. You have a team. And I got you - I got you girl. Then he goes through the steps with her humming the song that played during their first dance.
Later in the episode, there is a Call-Back to that scene. When Parker is feeling nervous about entering the vault: Parker steels herself to make her attempt. Hardison's humming is heard over the coms. Parker gains renewed confidence and starts walking, Nate looks confused, and Sophie looks delighted.
Leverage / Heartwarming - TV Tropes
When Parker is on the roof at the end, with no available escape options: I'm on the roof with no way down. No they're both blocked. I think I'm trapped up here. There's a third way down. No, I don't have a chute Hardison: Checks her backpack, finds a chute. Did you do this? When Parker rescues Hardison from the Secret Society by beating up the entire group, normally Elliot's job. You'll never be one of us! Should I tell him it's the age of the geek?
He'll figure it out eventually. Also in "The Experimental Job": Parker's hilariously horrible pep talk and Hardison's surprising reaction to the entire speech is so sweet and it shows how far they've actually come as a couple. The kiss wasn't bad either. Remember the other night when you were playing with your pretend friends?Parker & Hardison - We were meant to be
Look, they're, they're not pretend. They're just not in the same room with me. They're an elf, a dwarf, and a thing with a tail Remember when you took the thingy with the glowing thingy and then you used it to kill the guy who was on the shiny stuff and then also there was all this magic?
I, I think so That was so cool. I mean, how many people here are cool enough to kill the guy with the thing? You know what, you're right, that was pretty cool. No, but the fact that she thought it would work? Parker breaking into each of the homeless "volunteers'" cells to give them warm clothes when the experimenters turned the temperature down to below freezing.
It seemed like you've been focusing so much on the part of the job where we wreck people, I wanted you to see we've done some good in the world. Eliot delivering gifts to Sophie and Parker in Nate's and Hardison's names. This turns out to be Sophie under the guise of a duchess. Since the mark knows all the tricks, Nate and Sophie could not plan ahead - and since she's listening in via earpiece they can't say anything that would give either of them away.
What starts out as Nate's character romancing Sophie's character turns into Nate romancing Sophie herself. And then the mark pulls out because she's disgusted that Nate's clearly falling in love with the mark. I mean, just look at him! The reason why the client's wife disappeared after clearing out his accounts. She was a grifter like the others in the ring, but she actually fell in love with him and was on the verge of admitting the entire con to him.
She only left when the mark threatened to have him killed if the ring was exposed. She breaks down crying when Eliot and Sophie come to her and tell her they're here to help, so she finally has a way to reunite with her husband. Heck, the entire premise of the episode is a meta example. The client is the only millionaire on the show who isn't a corrupt and heartless scumbag, a reminder that being rich doesn't automatically make you evil in this world.
That's an uplifting story. Jimmy Ford finally admitting that he loves his son and is proud of him. Too bad it happens right before he gets blown up right in front of Nate. Either even more of a Tearjerker, or even more Heartwarming The moment when Archie introduced Parker as his daughter to his biological daughter, who was trying to get him to go to assisted living at that moment, and then promptly left with her.
Parker's face just sells it. There's a bit where Eliot holds a Dubenich at gunpoint, ready to shoot, all so that Nate won't be able to.
Yes, it's a bit terrifying, but it really shows what Eliot is willing to do for the sake of his friend. More, watch closely - his hand is shaking.
Not because he's afraid to kill - which we know he can do without flinching - but because he's been trying hard for most of the series to not be that man any more. A line he is willing to cross again for the sake of making sure Nate doesn't.
