White Collar - The Complete Sixth SeasonAfter six years on the air White Collar comes to an end with this shortened final season consisting of only six episodes centering around Neal‘s (Matt Bomer) final case for the FBI helping to take down a secret organization of elite criminals known as the Pink Panthers. Complicating Neal’s mission is the reappearance of Keller (Ross McCall) also working his way into the Panthers (and also secretly working for a government agency) and Neal’s own complicated plan to leave the FBI on his terms.

Highlights include the season premiere in which Peter (Tim DeKay) tracks down the kidnapped Neal, Neal is forced by the Panthers to destroy an innocent young woman (Laura Ramsey), and Peter joins the final con to help take the Panthers down. White Collar‘s wrap and Covert Affairs cancellation conclude a slew of enjoyable USA Network shows leaving the network a mostly barren landscape. It will be missed.

The two-disc set includes all 6 episodes, a retrospective of the show, deleted scenes, a gag reel, and a pair of audio commentaries for the series finale.

White Collar - Au Revoir

Ever since the end of the Third Season the post-FBI future of con man turned FBI informant Neal Caffrey (Matt Bomer) has been the show’s big looming unanswered question. Once his service was complete would Neal got back to his old ways or stay on the straight and narrow? As with the case of every single mid-season and season finale over the years, the show’s final episode ends on a bit of a cliffhanger with much left unsaid. Wrapping up the final season’s Pink Pather storyline, and Neal’s overall arc over the show’s six seasons, one thing it does reveal is that Neal (while changed by his experiences working for the FBI) still has equal parts angel and devil allowing him to end his tenure with the FBI on his terms.

White Collar - Whack-A-Mole

“Whack a Mole” sets up next week’s series finale as uncertainty and distrust creep back into Neal (Matt Bomer) and Peter‘s (Tim DeKay) relationship. Finally realizing the scope of the Pink Panthers’ plan, Neal relies on the assistance of both Mozzie (Willie Garson) and Peter to come up with an alternative (i.e. far less violent) plan that will allow the FBI to swoop in and catch the group with $500 million in stolen cash. And then of course there’s Keller (Ross McCall) and his his Interpol handler (Isaach De Bankolé) one of whom will turn up dead during the Panthers’ hunt for a mole inside their organization.

White Collar - Uncontrolled Variables

You always hurt the ones you love. Continuing a theme which we’ve seen played out over the show’s six seasons, Neal‘s (Matt Bomer) latest assignment from the Pink Panthers forces the spy to work alongside Matthew Keller (Ross McCall) and ultimately destroy the life of a beautiful young woman (Laura Ramsey) who he has immediate chemistry with. Further complicating matters are the lengths both Keller and his Interpol handler (Isaach De Bankolé) are willing to go to (including leaving bodies in their wake) to take down the secret criminal cadre.

White Collar - Return to Sender

After wrapping up the remaining threads of last season and introducing the possibility of Neal (Matt Bomer) finally winning his freedom last week, Neal’s mission to take down the secret organization of thieves known as the Pink Panthers begins in earnest with the return of old enemy Matthew Keller (Ross McCall). When Keller doesn’t expose Neal’s work with the FBI, and given that Russian officials state the man is still in prison, Neal deduces Keller has struck his own deal with Interpol to take down the Panthers opening the door to an explosive partnership that both men aren’t likely to survive unsinged.
