Since Sophie returned, the two women have been meeting off-screen, but did not work together due to their clashing styles. Two FBI agents Leverage Consulting & Associates tends to come across from time to time. She worked for the army, and was trained by either the FBI, or the Marines.Leverage moved to Sunday for season 3, which began on June 20, 2010.Nathan "Nate" Ford is a former insurance investigator and the leader of a team staging elaborate cons for clients victimized by those holding wealth and influence to avoid legal reprisal.

The team operates free of scrutiny as "Leverage Consulting & Associates", until Nate's former colleague, James Sterling, attempts their capture.
In response, they steal a collection of valuable art from Nate's former boss, Ian Blackpoole, returning it in exchange for Blackpoole being kicked out of his own company, and disband for six months. The team reunite and resume their activities, still followed by Sterling, until Nate surrenders to the latter in exchange for the others' freedom, finally admitting to Sterling and himself that he is a thief.
