TV Series Review - Leverage Season 3 Opener

Season 3 continues right after the Season 2 cliffhanger, with Nathan Ford in a private prison after being caught by the FBI in a failed con.

Also at the end of the season 2 finale, we were shown that Sophie is back with the gang and the team's immediate concern is to get Nate out of prison. Their good intentions are thwarted however, as the prisoner refuses to go along with the plan.

In prison Nate befriends a young inmate who has been harshly sentenced to imprisonment for a negligible misdemeanor.  This was all arranged by the prison director through corrupted judges  because he needs to maintain a high inmate ratio to keep the prison afloat. The gang then hatches a con to expose the director and save Nate and his friend.

Predictably there is not much change to the format of the show, given it's consistently high rating but rather than staying mundane, the creators have still managed to maintain the excitement in each episode, as the twist and turns of the storyline is fairly unpredictable.

In this third season opener, we are also introduce to the “Italian”, a mysterious lady played by the delightful Elizabetta,Canalis who blackmails the team into taking down a well known mobster. Ms Canalis, or Lady Clooney would be appearing in several episodes throughout this season as the the team plan tackle the mobster.
