Leverage Consulting & Associates He has special relationships with two members of his team. As of episode one of Season 5 Hardison is dating Parker .
He is an outgoing, romantic computer whiz. She is or was when we first met her an introverted, slightly off-center master thief.
As the two characters grew closer in seasons three and four, fans wondered if Parker and Hardison would actually become a legit couple. In an amusing turn, the two matter-of-factly told the team they're dating in the season five premiere.
And, you know, messing with that would also mess with the feel of the group entirely. But at the same time we know it's going to be a little bit unique. The moments you do see them together talking about dating or the fun, intimate moments that they have, they're usually private and usually they're quirky, but they're also really sweet. And some fans I've heard talk about it online are like, 'Oh, man, does it change the way that they are together?
It doesn't, because they are who they are, and they're never going to be like every other couple. They're not going to be going to the park and having a picnic. So, too, Riesgraf appreciates the way in which Parker has evolved. She's not the quiet loner fans saw in the first season of "Leverage. I want to know about his fears.

Beth Riesgraf: 'A lot of surprises' in fifth season of 'Leverage'
I want to know a little bit more about him, as an individual. This year is just the tip of the iceberg for it. Next year, we can go even deeper. Christian [Kane] is the most serious. Beth [Riesgraf] is probably the goofiest.

Initially, it was the character. The role itself was very off what I usually do. Granted, the role changed a bit, in the middle of shooting, as most roles do, but it was still the story behind it and the grittiness of it.
He knows how to do his job well and he knows how to keep honoring his character. Hardison is just going to keep getting better and better.
Is it inspiring to you to see young filmmakers like that, who are getting movies done themselves? With all of these it feels like the show steps out of where it wants to be just to do these bits and the viewer feels the lack of comfort of this step.Leverage: Alec Hardison - Best of The First Contact Job (S5E03)
This shows in the cast as well; they are at their best with a great episode that provides snappy dialogue, silly action and some nice zings along the way. Hutton is still lumbered with this alcoholism and "troubled past" stuff that he can't drop but isn't given much to do with, so too often his performance is him lumbering around like a bear with a sore head.
He is good in the cons though, which I guess is where it counts. Bellman is better this season and she got quite a few laughs out of me. Hodge remains my favourite and he is good while his material also helps him lift others around him. The various guests come and go — no massive names but some nice referential castings.
