Nate's friend Fr. Paul (D.B. Sweeney) is on his way to petition the city council to save his church when he's attacked by thugs. Behind the attack is the developer poised to use the church land for a shopping plaza. To help Fr. Paul, Nate and the team fake a miracle, but in the resulting notoriety, the developer envisions a theme park built around the church.
This Christmas Eve eve episode was written by my friend Christine Boylan, and I saw flashes of her personality all through it, just as I hoped. (Sophie Devereaux as Willy Loman? Brilliant.) This was the deepest, juiciest episode so far. Good luck to Christine and Leverage. Take care of her, Rogers.
