White Collar - One Last Stakeout

Even after completing his deal with The Dutchman (Mark Sheppard), Neal (Matt Bomer) still finds himself under the former forger’s thumb when he blackmails Neal into stealing a single chapter of a rare manuscript from a local museum under the nose of both Peter (Tim DeKay) and Neal’s new handler Special Agent David Seigel (Warren Kole). With no choice but to go through with the crime, Neal lifts the key card of a museum worker (Bridget Regan) and enlists the help of Mozzie (Willie Garson) to use another thief’s robbery of a more valuable piece to cover their crime (and create an excuse for Neal to be at the museum).

White Collar - At What Price

White Collar begins its Fifth Season with the tables turned and Peter (Tim DeKay) languishing behind bars for six weeks. Needing to prove Peter’s innocence before the indictment which, even if later acquitted, would cost him his job in the FBI and Neal (Matt Bomer) his provisional freedom, the con man accepts a deal with the first criminal he helped Peter take down. The Dutchman (Mark Sheppard) guarantees Peter’s freedom if Neal forges a confession from his father and agrees to perform a job for the still incarcerated forger.

However, after an unexpected meeting with his former boss (James Rebhorn) Peter is unsure who to trust.

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).

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.”

White Collar - Family Business

White Collar returns from it’s Fourth Season mid-season hiatus with plenty of unanswered questions surrounding the truth about Sam (Treat Williams) who was revealed to be Neal’s father James in the mid-season finale cliffhanger.

With mixed feelings about seeing his father again, Neal (Matt Bomer) turns his attention to helping Peter (Tim DeKay) take down Dennis Flynn, Jr. (Scott Evans) and get some justice for the woman who raised him.
