dammit-hardison

In the course of my rewatch-all-5-seasons-of-Leverage binge over the past few months, I’ve realized that my favorite long-running gag is Eliot choosing the wrong thing to get mad about.

  • Sophie accuses him of sleeping around with waitresses and stewardesses?  “FIRST OF ALL, THEY’RE CALLED FLIGHT ATTENDANTS”
  • Hardison denies stealing Eliot’s sandwich and says “you probably ate it yourself and forgot about it?” “OH, MY SANDWICH IS FORGETTABLE????“ [launches into insanely detailed cooking techniques of what, to be fair, does sound like a bonkers delicious sandwich]
  • Hardison announces that he’s bought a brewery in Portland where they can hide out slash take cases slash brew their own beer?  Everyone else is like “why the eff did we have to move to this new town with no warning” and Eliot is LIVID that Hardison is underestimating how hard food and beer pairings are.  “THE BREWPUB MENU IS THE HARDEST KIND OF MENU TO DESIGN!”

I literally never get tired of it.  I could watch Christian Kane get offended at implausibly bizarre perceived insults ALL DAY.

YOU GUYS the Leverage S2 premiere “The Beantown Bailout Job” is SQUAD GOALS AF

I have watched this episode like fifty times and it still just fills my heart with explosions of glee. I just love watching the team slowwwwly take over Nate’s apartment and life while he yells “GO AWAY I’M NOT YOUR DAD ANYMORE” while secretly being so glad his babies are back.

I LOVE IT I LOVE IT ALL I LOVE IT SO MUCH

Also FUSCO IS IN THIS!?!??!!!??!

‘Dammit Hardison’ Compilation

grrlinthefireplace  asked:

ACTUAL TEARS STREAMING DOWN MY FACE AT HARDISON GETTING OUT OF THE COFFIN AND ELIOT JUST SEIZING HIM IN THE BIGGEST TIGHTEST BRO-HUG IN THE HISTORY OF BROS HUGGING AND SAYING "DON'T YOU EVER DO THAT AGAIN, MAN" OH GOD I'M CRYING AS I RELIVE IT WHILE WRITING YOU THIS MESSAGE, DAMMIT HARDISON

That is, I think, the worst episode, emotionally. It starts out cute and funny and normal (with bickering and adorableness and team bonding and all that stuff) and then Hardison gets taken and suddenly the race is on and the whole time, my heart was just pounding because they hadn’t found him yet.

And when Eliot basically yanks him into this super long (for Eliot) hug and he’s literally gripping Hardison and at the same time, you can tell that’s he’s checking him over for wounds, I just broke. I think I started crying at that point. It was so emotionally draining. I was completely unable to process it.

But, also, Sophie’s mom-chokehold when it’s her turn to hug him. ohmigod, the entire rescue scene just makes me very emotional.
