White Collar reinvents itself with this episode after a somewhat lackluster third season, I only hope that the show can keep the pace if Neal reunites with Peter. All in all though recommended to fans of the show and the suggestion that newcomers should start with Season One dvds or streaming.
In this episode, Neal and Peter host a panel at an FBI conference detailing why their partnership works and why Peter chose him. In a sweet scene, especially given the tension of late between Peter and Neal over the disappearance of Sam, Peter tells Neal that he chose him to be his partner because he liked him - hopefully making Neal feel at least a little guilty about all the ways he is deceiving Peter. The con of the week is fair this week. The real action centers on Sam, just who he is and what the truth is about Neal's father and the crimes that tore Neal's family apart when he was a child. Peter is convinced that Sam isn't who he says he is and tries to convince Neal to let him help. Instead, Neal and Mozzy con Peter. Peter is really very patient with all of Neal's shennanigans. In the final scene, it is revealed who Sam really is but the bigger questions about the past remain unanswered. A good episode of White Collar after a very solid season. I will be watching the next half of the season with interest.
I will try to keep the details of what happens in a general and fairly non specific fashion.
This season focuses mostly on Neal and his search for the truth regarding his father (and family). The ole nature vs nurture question. The themes are thoughtfully done and not at all simply answered.
There are many ups but also downs for our favorite pals-- being a fugitive (1), murder, breakups, secrets, blackmail, demotions, a FBI workplace shake-up, lies, and trust.
Although at times it may seem as if they are repeating the same themes (especially the trust one) Neal and Peter seem in a much better place then in seasons past. Peter explores more grey area decision-making which creates some tension in storyline. Mozzie is well Mozzie. He is especially the focus in episode 6 "Identity Crisis" and is often around in other episodes . Alex is in episode 8 "Ancient History". Sarah is not in many episodes but pops up now and again-- "Parting Shots" (4); Compromising Positions (7); "Shoot the Moon" (14) "In the Wind" (16)-- I'm sure she pops up in a few other episodes, as well. Elizabeth also makes more of a presence in the storyline -- the second half. Episodes that come to mind are: 14 and "Empire City" (13).Read more ›
The rest of the episodes are okay, but not great. This season's theme is the search for Neal's father and we learn more background about the con man. This might have been more exciting season two rather than four. As it is, the chemistry between Matt Bomer and Tim DeKay (who is, after four seasons, finally getting pictured on the cover) is more than good enough to make you forgive some rather ho hum plots.
All in all, a good but not really memorable White Collar season.
