Over the weekend, the staff from Leverage returned. In Leverage: Redemption, which airs free on IMDb TV, Sophie Devereaux (Gina Bellman) reteamed with Alec Hardison (Aldis Hodge), Christian Kane (Eliot Spencer), and Parker (Beth Riesgraf). However what occurred to Nathan Ford? Within the wake of allegations of rape towards Leverage star Timothy Hutton, who performed Nate, writers had to determine what they have been going to do to put in writing him out, changing his spot on the lineup card with Harry Wilson (Noah Wyle). This was made tougher since you could not simply give him a contented retirement offscreen, since his “pleased ending” was at all times going to be ending up residing out his days with Sophie.
That, it seems, is what he did. He lived out his days with Sophie…however sadly for Nate, it was a shorter life than followers might need hoped for him.
The collection premiere of Leverage: Redemption reveals that Nathan Ford died a couple of yr in the past, leaving Sophie alone of their massive home. It is there that she is first approached by the remainder of the Leverage staff, who counsel that serving to victims discover justice could assist her preserve her thoughts off her latest loss. With the staff coming to Sophie and bringing her on board, it offers them an opportunity to keep away from utilizing Hutton’s Nate Ford, with out dropping Sophie, who stop the staff to run off along with Nate on the finish of the collection.
In March 2020, ex-model Sera Johnston claimed that Hutton had raped her in 1983, when she was 14 years previous and he was 22. Johnston filed a felony criticism towards Hutton, however Hutton has denied all allegations, claiming that they amounted to an extortion plot.
Nate does get referenced sometimes all through the collection, typically within the context of serving to Sophie transfer ahead. Briefly, we get an allusion to his coronary heart operating scorching, probably a sign that Nate died of a coronary heart assault. Nevertheless, with out Hutton’s involvement, do not anticipate any flashbacks, or perhaps a cameo by the “previous Nate” portray that used to hold within the Leverage workplaces, offered to guests as a picture of the corporate’s founder and an ancestor of Nate’s.
Provided that Harry endeared himself to the staff all through the course of the season, do not anticipate Nate to indicate again up if the collection will get a second season. If you have not seen the collection but, you’ll be able to stream it now on IMDb TV.
