“Let’s go catch the son of a bitch that shot my dad.”
In the conclusion to last season’s cliffhanger Henry (Corbin Bernsen) fights for his life in the hospital, and deals with the unwanted affection of Chelsea (Arden Myrin), and a sleep-deprived and destructive Shawn (James Roday), with the help of Gus (Dulé Hill), searches for his father’s old friend Jerry Carp (Max Gail), who shot Henry and left him for dead. After finding a secret room in the man’s house and clues to continue searching, but also being caught in the act of breaking “half his house” by Juliet (Maggie Lawson) and Lassie (Timothy Omundson), Shawn once again promises to leave the case to the SBPD.
Everyone gathers for Theresa (Yara Martinez) and Dan’s (Tyler Christopher) wedding, everyone except for the missing bride-to-be who no one has seen since she left her engagement party early for her late night stakeout. Dan and Ethan (Blair Redford) begin searching for Theresa, but all they find is an empty apartment, her wedding ring, and other signs which point to her leaving town. Tensions continue to rise between both Ted (Andy Buckley) and Kristin (Helen Slater) and Alec (Adrian Pasdar) and Rebecca (Charisma Carpenter) as each man continues to spend time with each other’s wife.
“I’ve had three different names, and a dozen different aliases, because of you. And to be an artist you have to know who you are.”
Big changes are afoot as White Collar Division meets their new boss (Emily Procter) and Peter (Tim DeKay) and Neal (Matt Bomer) begin working together to find Ellen’s (Judith Ivey) evidence now that Peter knows Neal only lied to him under pressure from Elizabeth (Tiffani Thiessen). Visting an art gallery to test the validity of other piece brings Neal’s attention to what he believes is an expensive forgery of a recently deceased artist. With nothing more concrete than Neal’s hunch Agent Callaway (Procter) orders Peter to move on to another case and give her “a quick, high-profile case to impress the Bureau.”
