Nate, whispering to Parker


Parker is sidelined with a knee injury while the rest of the gang is in Japan on a job. Left behind, and going stir crazy, she discovers the surveillance cameras in the downstairs brewpub. When a couple of odd customers attract her attention, she finds herself preventing what she believes is the robbery of a nearby jewelry store with the help of an unlikely assistant.

The ClientEdit

The client is not known until the end of the con.

The MarkEdit

Two customers at the Brewery, whom Parker discovers. They are unusual and call themselves "V" and "K".

LocationsEdit

  • This episode is a "bottle episode", taking place almost entirely in the Leverage office and the adjoining brewpub in Portland.
  • The rest of the team is in Tokyo Japan.

The ConEdit

Parker does not know what "V" and "K" are up to, but she knows she has to stop it using passive tactics.

Episode NotesEdit

  • This episode centers almost entirely around Parker, with the others seen briefly at various points in the episode when she contacts them for help, it is a nod to Alfred Hitchcock's "Rear Window".
  • Parker's assistant, Amy is named for the Eleventh Doctor's companion, Amy Pond. The episode includes several Doctor Who references.
  • According to the DVD Commentary for this episode, The Sapphire Monkey is the Artifact in question in the Japan plot.
  • Parker is seen talking to Hardy, A.K.A Parker 2000 (the green robot frog), first seen in 'The Carnival Job' - season 4 episode 6.

TriviaEdit

  • We find out that Parker is fluent in French, due to having spent time in France on the job. She has been in a French prison but only for one night. (see Kung Fu Monkey Blog answering post)
  • Guest Actress Karen Justman is a stunt double for Beth Riesgraf
