YEAH BUT WHY HAVEN’T YOU WATCHED LEVERAGE
What is marriage? Is it running around rooftops in Paris? No. It’s hard work.
Leverage | THE BRIDESMAIDS JOB
Nate and Sophie get married, fuck catering Eliot will cook everything, and Parker, Tara and Maggie are bridesmaids. At some point INTERPOL turns up (headed up by Sterling and his group of hot female agents of course), and the wedding dress goes missing so Parker, Tara and Maggie have to find some way to steal it back. Setting includes the rooftops of Paris.
For the first time in my life, I’m exactly where I belong.Leverage 5.15 The Long Goodbye Job
-I wouldn’t have fit in with the real family.
-You didn’t need it, anyhow. You went out and made your own.
I know you children don’t play well with others, but I need you to hold it together for exactly seven more minutes.
Nate: What we’re really asking here is: “How would I destroy myself?”
Parker: Yeah, and you can’t say booze.
Sterling: And here we have the most valuable piece in that collection gone missing, and my favourite art thief on the premises.
I have so many feelings about these two, mostly about them being mirrors of each other. I will go into detail about that in another post when I have time. It’s very simple, the level of narcissism they excude is equal to the amount of attraction they have for each other. That’s really what differentiates them from the Parker/Hardison romance, they thrive on sameness. Sophie is like the epitome of loving yourself before loving another—she knows she’s a catch (lbr she is), and Nate had to take a few bullets to get there (~that’s my girl). I find that Nate this season is finally able to accept himself and his lifestyle, we never see him drink alone, and his demeanor has drastically changed. There are a lot of parallels to conversations he’s had with Sophie in Season 1 that they’ve worked out—certainly the way he can jest about it with her, and a truly stunning display of flirtatious mind games and bantering (foreplay?) that seem to disturb Sterling to know end. They are deliberately written as arrogant, obsessive, conniving assholes who delight in people who are exactly like them. Leave it to Sophie to orchestrate (yup, she did, Jon Rogers even said so, that friends with bennies business was all part of Sophie’s devious plan, bless) her very own time-honoured burgeoning love story in a dramatically satisfying fashion. And the functioning alcoholic mastermind fell in love with the ex-art thief and unrepentant, inveterate, professional liar.
Who else would have tell-all memoir with an obnoxiously long title: Repressed insurance Cops Harassing Tragically Misunderstood Femme Fatales.
baby you need to leave, cause I’m getting drunk on your noble deeds
I’m a paper doll, you can tear me up, we’ll be the broken lovers with the poison cup
and we’ll draw in breaths like we don’t have air
PRE-SERIES NATE/SOPHIE! set to Kyla La Grange’s Vampire Smile
Nate was a Good Guy™ insurance investigator and Sophie was the seductive art thief that he chased all over the world. It was out of necessity at first, but eventually he started picking up cases that he knew Sophie was involved in because if anything, he was attracted and intrigued by her. He never cheated on Maggie, of course, being an honest man and all, and that integrity was a big part of why Sophie was attracted to him.
But really I’ve just been listening to this song (well, Kyla’s album) a lot these days and it became one of those ohmygod this song is totally about my otp songs after a while and I couldn’t get this out of my head.
