Leverage: Redemption - The Turkish Prisoner Job

Letting Harry (Noah Wyle) take the lead, the team goes up against a couple of crooked local cops (Alanna Masterson and Derek Theler) jailing honest people for real estate kickbacks after their homes get foreclosed. The transition from taking down the cops to saving the life of their latest victim is a little more clumsy than usual with Harry in charge, but the team manages to pull off a classic con sending the pair of marks after hidden treasure allowing their greed to blind them temporarily. 

The episode is notable for the alligators (and fake death sequence), Harry becoming more a part of the crew, and the ease by which Breanna (Aleyse Shannon) stirs up trouble at the court house. Callbacks to previous episodes include Sophie (Gina Bellman) informing Harry he needs a "Plan M," although she takes no steps to explain what that means to someone who didn't know the group joke about the plan in which Hardison would likely die. Since he isn't in the episode, I'm guessing Hardison wouldn't die in Harry's plan (although, you would figure the hacker taking his spot would likely not have great odds).
