Compromising Positions

White Collar - Compromising Positions Online S04E07 After last week’s less than stellar episode, White Collar was back to its true, fantastic form with tonight’s episode, “Compromising Positions.” Neal, Peter and the FBI were going up against a talented fixer with a little help from Sara and Mozzie and Neal finally made contact with the mysterious Sam. But can the former cop be trusted?

This episode needed to include a warning: Do Not Drink While Viewing. In the four years White Collar’s been entertaining us, I don’t believe there has been a funnier scene than the one in tonight’s episode, superbly written by Matt Negrete. The entire episode is a perfect blend of serious and hilarious.

The episode started with Sam picking up Neal and asking him a bunch of questions. Neal explained his FBI consultant deal and he assured Sam that he could trust Peter. Sam felt the FBI was somehow responsible for what happened to Ellen since she’d been safe all these years until she landed on the FBI radar.

Sam basically kicked Neal out of the car, but Neal broke off his key in the door so he could use it to trace Sam’s whereabouts. He brought Mozzie in on the plan, but Mozzie warned Neal that Sam might not be trustworthy and he wasn’t sure it was a good idea to keep Peter out of it. But Neal was worried about Peter doing anything off book since he’s still on probation.

When he tells Mozzie, Neal receives interesting advice about keeping Peter informed on the case. Seems like a surprising turn from Mozzie to trust and include Peter, but if you think about it, Peter’s always had Neal’s best interest at heart (as does Moz) and has proved that loyalty over the past years.

Honor Among Thieves

White Collar - Honor Among Thieves Online S04E05 Welcome back Collar fans! Doesn’t two weeks seem like a long time to leave Ellen in jeopardy? I definitely think so. But for once, we get the answer to our question immediately. Of course, if you’ve seen any of the previews, you probably know the answer already.

Now I want to be clear from the upfront, I have applauded the show’s evolution this season as it has stopped relying on the Neal runs, Peter chases theme. While it played out well for the first three seasons, the trope had become somewhat tired. Tonight, however, when Peter was sitting at home with Elle and speculating about Neal’s ultimate motives, I could not help but smile. At his core, Neal is always going to be somebody that lives in a very grey area, even when he is doing the right thing. When the showed signaled that Neal was going to reform his actions and follow the straight and narrow, however, I was worried that the writers would take the change too far. In other words, no matter what kind of life-altering decisions Neal goes through, he will be and should be a person that always skirts the line.

The episode began with Ellen’s funeral. I don’t know about you, but I’d like to think the show would have put a little more time into whether or not Ellen died at the scene or in between lying on a stretcher and ending up in a casket. It seemed cut a little short, skipping over the most important part: her actual death.

Once again, we’ll just have to accept Mozzie and Ellen’s delightful 10 minutes together gardening on the sidewalk as reason enough why Neal’s right-hand man would abandon his criminal principles and drop everything to aid “the suits.” One way or the other, he’s up for some high-concept dirty work, having concocted a means of blurring out his face for security cameras so he can be an effective decoy as Neal jacks the Pascal under Peter’s nose. He’s a generous con man, but also essential, balancing comic relief (e.g. his shrinking from Abigail after she threatens to “break your little fingers”), especially in an episode that occasionally strikes an uneven tone.

Diminishing Returns

White Collar - Diminishing Returns Online S04E03

Tonight’s episode of White Collar, called “Diminishing Returns” would be high on the list because boy did they pull off a doozy in the last few minutes. But let’s start with the beginning of the episode, shall we?

It’s clear that this season will be about discovery of Neal’s past and we begin to get that in this episode. But the highlight was really Peter undercover and disobeying orders (for the most part). It takes three episodes in, but Neal is finally back at his old desk, clean shaven and in a suit again. It’s nice to have you back. Too bad Peter is not there as well, but Peter takes it all in stride even if it kind of sucks.

Luckily we have some sneak peeks of tonight’s episode “Diminishing Returns” and these show that even when Peter isn’t officially working with Neal, he can be coerced into helping with a case, especially when that case is an old one of Peter’s. They are tracking David Cook (Michael Weston); a brilliant thief who has eluded the FBI for years and this might be the one chance they have to catch him. As this was Peter’s case, he is the expert and he can play an essential role, but will he get caught disobeying orders again? Before the season started Matt Bomer explained that there are moments where Peter “swings further to Neal’s side than he’s ever swung before” and this could be one of them.

Not only was Neal a fresh pair of gorgeous eyes with which to see the case, but he was determined to solve it on Peter’s behalf because it was important to him. The gesture only solidifies their relationship as one of mutual respect and genuine manly affection—almost father/son.
