Articles for White Collar Season 4

Peter hugged Neal first when they saw each other for the first time in six weeks--he even said, "It‘s good to see you."That act, and that gesture, would have been unthinkable when Peter caught Neal at the start of the series. But the friendship has become so strong over the years, that Peter not only is willing to throw his career away, but he even dragged his wife and two partners into his scheme to save Neal as well. Read more »
After the daring season finale that saw Neal break his parole - at Peter‘s suggestion and permission - it was assumed that he wouldn‘t just be able to reenter the FBI fold and have his old job back. There had to be repercussions. Tonight‘s episode showed the audience what those repercussions were, but they don‘t fall on Neal--instead, Peter is the one who pays the price.  Read more »
Neal‘s been a criminal for a long time, but in tonight‘s episode, he admits it casually to Peter as he reminisces what little he knows about his father. While other season-long arcs saw Neal continue his criminal enterprises, this is the season where he plays by the rules and instead seeks to find out whether or not his father was a murderer. Even though he doesn‘t come out and say it, it is heavily hinted that Neal believes his life of crime may have begun when he learned the truth about his father.  Read more »

"You wouldn‘t have believed me." - Neal"You should have given me the chance." - PeterOver the last four years, the friendship between Neal and Peter has seen its ups and downs for sure, but it seemed like we were now at a point where they trusted each other implicitly. Peter, in particular, has laid his job on the line multiple times for Neal in the last year or so, because he felt that Neal had earned that trust. Read more »
While tonight‘s episode seemingly ignores the anger that Peter would have rightly felt towards Neal after what he pulled last week, and it does nearly nothing to advance the season long plotline of Neal uncovering his father‘s secrets, it was still an entertaining episode -- but had the episode focused entirely on the first ten minutes, it might have been amongst the series‘ best.In the first ten minutes, Mozzie tells a story to Neal and Peter about uncovering a storage closet that seemingly contains National Treasure-like clues pointing to a long-lost American artifact: the flag that George Washington carried across the Delaware River. Read more »
A lot of things that don‘t normally happen on White Collar happened on tonight‘s episode.Peter ropes Diana into spying on Sam (and thus Neal) ... and is completely honest and transparent about it.Mozzie, upset about Neal‘s dealings with Sam, sides with Peter and tries to convince Neal not to continue to mistrust everyone for this alliance with Sam.Peter blatantly breaks the law when he‘s in Alex‘s apartment and doesn‘t just allow Mozzie to find things "in plain view" -- he actually starts rifling through her things in a blatant Constitutional violation. Read more »
"I understand he‘s your asset." - Sam"Yeah. That‘s part of the arrangement." - PeterSomething occurred to me while watching tonight‘s episode of White Collar: Peter is Neal‘s friend, but Neal is not necessarily Peter‘s friend. Opinions may vary, but it was hard not to almost universally support Peter‘s action in tonight‘s episode -- even all season long.At the beginning of the episode, Peter and Neal make a pact to not share Ellen‘s video with anyone--not even Sam. Neal comes awfully close to breaking that deal relatively quickly and invites Sam over the next day to chat. He does not ultimately show the video to him, but a large part of the reason why he doesn‘t is likely because Elizabeth showed up with gelato. Read more »

How much does your father‘s life and morality impact who you are as an adult? It‘s something both Neal and Dennis Flynn Jr. struggle with in the mid-season premiere of White Collar.Neal‘s father -- known as James Bennett -- is forthcoming with answers at the very top of the premiere. Through a series of flashbacks, we learn that he‘s not a murderer, but he was a dirty cop. He was caught taking money from a bust by his supervising officer who offered to look the other way if James did him some favors.Those favors involved working with the Irish mob run by a family called the Flynns. At first, the favors were simple: helping them escape police attention, taking out their competition, etc. But when James tried to leave the family, they framed him for the murder of his supervising officer, which eventually led to his family (Neal and his wife) going into witness protection. Read more »

After a particularly strong episode of White Collar last week that introduced a new nemesis and new set of reasons for Neal to lie to Peter, we‘re back to the "case of the week" format involving two New York institutions: taxis and jazz clubs. (With a mix of forgery and money laundering thrown in.) It‘s a lighter episode, but it does possess one interesting quality: you‘re never quite sure who is actually the perpetrator of the crimes in "Empire City".At the start of the episode, Mozzie is working as a cab driver, but don‘t worry he didn‘t actually get a job. Instead, he‘s gathering info from people who might know where in the city the key from last week‘s episode matches the skyline. Peter is trying to find the cityscape as well, by following Neal on his tracker. Both come up empty.By this point, Neal has tried many views from various places that were important to Ellen over the years--including the view from an ex-boyfriend‘s place. And Elizabeth continues to express reservations over Peter‘s involvement in the case because of the danger involved.  Read more »
