Summon Leviathan

Weirdest Media Tie-In Dream Ever.

Here's the weird part, right up front: I'm not a "fan" of "Leverage." I should be! I've thoroughly enjoyed every episode I've ever seen, and I have a lot of respect and affection for Tim Hutton and Gina Bellman is a mega-hottie. But I don't think about the show when I'm not watching it. I don't seek out fic. I don't write fic.

But I nonetheless dreamed a "Series Finale" for it, in which it was revealed that all of the members of the team were dead. The entire series was, in fact, a process, put together by Nate, through which each member of the team dealt with issues remaining to them that were keeping them "tied" to their old lives, to free them from those ties. In the Dream-Finale, each character, in turn, finally came to terms with whatever their issue was. When it would happen, each would look Nate in the eye -- across a room, or from some other significant distance -- and they would acknowledge one another, a nod, an expression, and then the team member would just dissolve, moving on into whatever afterlife awaited them. When they'd all moved on, Nate was able to follow, and he, too, after looking into the camera, his expression peaceful, serene, acknowledging us, the viewers, dissolved, moving on.

No, that makes no sense at all in the context of the series, but that's what I dreamed.

Weird.

When's the last time you watched Jacob's Ladder?

Years ago. Only seen once.

The whole vibe was different, though. This was more like Highway to Heaven.
