Leverage usually goes all out for its season finales, and that is certainly the case here, especially when it comes to the action-packed first episode "The Big Bang Job." "The San Lorenzo Job" drags a bit in a few spots, but I like the twists and it has plenty of amusing satire of American politics. In both episodes, the writers tie in plot lines from earlier in the season in interesting ways, and while at least one of those ways is a bit strained and disbelief overall needs to be suspended a bit more than usual in these two episodes, (one scene in particular), I think the payoff is worth it.
While there is some interesting character development all around, Eliot gets the most focus as we are given a couple of hints into his back story and how it currently affects him Christian Kane shines, as does the rest of the cast in this very teamwork-oriented finale.
We finally meet Damian Moreau in the form of a slickly smug Goran Visnjic. Unfortunately with Moreau comes The Italian, and she is even more distracting here (especially in "The Big Bang Job") than usual. As to the actual Moreau story, there are some great moments and surprising reveals, and while Visnjic is more generic villain (with the exception of one scene, at least) than I had hoped, I’m mostly happy with how it’s handled.
