Great season three finale of “White Collar” this week, filled with great twists and the seasons most intense chase. Turns out the reason Agent Kramer has been digging up dirt on Neal is because he wants him to come to Washington and work for him indefinitely. The stolen Raphael that has been featured throughout the series is finally recovered in a great nail-biting chase sequence that has Neal leaping from passing Roosevelt Island trams. Peter and Sara don’t want Kramer taking Neal away and do whatever they can to make sure Neal isn’t in possession of the stolen painting. Neal visits a grandmother type figure from his past and we get a glimpse into his adolescence. With the exception of Jones everyone tells the committee that Neal should have his sentence commuted. Even Peter backs Neal who has grown to become more of a partner than a prisoner. Before we could find out what the committee has decided Kramer shows up determined to take Neal into custody. Peter signals Neal with nod and just like that Neal disappears. Turns out Mozzie stashed away some of the treasure and Neal cuts his anklet and the two take off. There is a tear in Neal’s eye as they fly away but it is quickly replaced with a sly smile and I bet he will be back next season. Until then I have my DVR set to record.
