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.
This week on “White Collar,” Neal and Peter go undercover at an elite Manhattan prep school to thwart an embezzlement plot. Guest star Dylan Baker plays the bad guy who is stealing the schools scholarship money. Daker is alway great, not really a scary bad guy unless you have seen Todd Solondz’s “Happiness” and are freaked out he is in a school. Neal finds himself undercover as an english teacher and not only saves the day but also plays Cupid (with the help on Mozzie) to two teenage star-crossed lovers. Neal does a bit of sucking up to Peter hoping he wont “tell the whole truth” about the treasure (which he doesn’t.) Neal seems genuinely happy with his life and really cares about Peter, whether Peter will accept him as a partner and not a criminal is yet to be seen. “White Collar” continues to be a clever show with really fun cons. Really looking forward to seeing where both Peter and Neal’s relationship and the season goes. “White Collar” airs Tuesday 10pm on USA, I for one have my DVR set to record!
Neal and the gang are back and not holding any punches in the midseason premiere of USA’s “White Collar.” A fantastic episode of the show my girlfriend likes to tease is a “soap opera” for guys. It looks like creator Jeff Eastin is shaking things up with a killer cliff hanger ending. The show also returned to its original title sequence after fans voiced their dislike on social media when they were changed in the beginning of season 3. in Tuesday’s episode titled “cheakmate” we learn that both Caffrey and Mozzie have really grown as people and are willing to give up the beloved treasure to save “Mrs. Suit” and continue the lives they have made for themselves. Thing is now the FBI is so thankful to Neal that he may be pardoned!!?? What this will mean for the show I don’t know but I look forward to finding out. “White Collar” air on USA Tuesday’s 10pm. I for one have my DVR set to Record!
