Leverage Nate + Sophie?

We've seen a small subplot of nate and sophie talking about them beeing together. As far as I remember Nate is supposed to 'think about it'. Do you think it's a good idea to add a romance plot into such a show? The show is focused on cons and scams of the Leverage Crew and a small romance sub-plot might just be the thing here?

What do you guys think, will the show let us see Nate and Sophie together?

I'm a few episodes behind on this one, but I feel like they are definitely headed in that direction.
And...what always makes a procedural slightly more interesting than just having the mystery/task of the week is having ongoing character sub-plots, so I think it's a good move!

It's obvious there is an underlying story about how Sophie and Nate know each other and I think it's just fine that their history come out over time. While the show is still getting it's footing, I think it's better that they focus on the "jobs" at hand but in the long run, the more the audience can relate to the main characters the better the show will be.
Yes, Rachel, I agree with you. He's so adorable with short hair and it seems to get in his face all the time so just cut that mop!!! I think they want him to be seen as a bad boy...but he's got that look anyway so what's with all the hair?

I think it's better that Sophie and Nate don't get together.. at least not now anyways. I think the fact of the back and forth banter makes the couple funny to watch and if they were to get together it would go from funny to boring..

Are You Kidding Me??? Christian Kane is so sexy and his long hair is part of it.. he looks too much like a lawyer or something with short hair...(Angel) .. but the long hair gives him that "bad-ass" look. He was the reason I started watching this show in the first place.. then I fell in love with it but still.. cutting his hair shorter wouldn't do his character any justice.

Reffering to Kane, they do try to make him look bad-ass. I mean thats his character, dark, cynical, sarcastic, cool. But sometimes it seems that the show tries too hard to make him look cool and it actually turns out to be funny.
Like on last episode I loved the part when he was sitting on the plane and some guy was drooling off on his shoulder and he brutally knocked him to the other side with a pissed off look. You could hear the sound of the guys head banging on the chair, it made me laugh :D

I've got no problem with adding romance to the show - in a subtle, unobtrusive way. I just don't want that to happen w/Sophie & Nate.

Well, honestly I don't see any other romantic path available... I mean Parker's just too weird and I can't picture her in a romantic situation with anyone, and she's the only other girl on the team.
As for Sophie + someone else, also can't see it since she seems to be only interested in Nate.
