I had the privilege of watching the season finale Countdown of White Collar ahead, so I could write a little about it.
And I have some light spoilers from White Collar third season midseason finale. Nothing big, just a couple of quotes from it and a couple of moments. Nothing after the fifteen minute mark, because trust me… you will want to watch White Collar midseason finale August 9 9/8 C on USA.
Mark my words… you will want to watch it.
White Collar third mid-season finale semi spoilers and quotes
First of all, the biggest non spoiler: The episode is a must watch
Neal and Mozzie must stay one step ahead of the the FBI while appearing to work with them in order to keep them from discovering that they possess the treasure.
The episode opens with a previosuly on sequence that shows Mozzie and Neal toasting for the big score they´ve done, and then Peter and Diana talking about the manifest.
We see Anna Chlumsky´s first appearance on the show and Peter´s suspecting face.
I know it´s a previously on scene, but Mozzie saying “You lied to me?” to Neal still gives me the chills.
Now it´s time for the actual midseason finale episode Countdown, that starts with Mozzie sitting on a bench in the park and Neal sneaking upon him to talk to Moz, since he´s angry and wouldn´t talk to him; Neal had to semi con him.
Neal: You have every right to be angry at me. I lied to you.
Neal: I have a life here
Moz: We have a dream
Neal: Well, dreams change
Moz: Come on Neal, this was the one… a perfect last score.
Moz: But that leaves a question… do you wanna stay?
Neal answers: (Hey, of course I won´t tell you this! You need to see the episode… tinsy bits and teases are ok… big time spoilers are kind of no no)
Beau Bridges enters the scene at the FBI as agent Kramer, Peter´s mentor! “I´m paraphrasing here, but I don´t think Socrates would mind”
Jones: A Degas!
Peter: Good eye Hones
Agent Kramer: What do you think, Neal?
Neal: Me? I think recovering this masterpiece would be incredible, sir.
Peter: Me too. So we are gonna find it.
Aaaand that´s about as much as I can tell you in the form of mini spoilers. For the rest, you´ll need to watch the finale of White Collar, and once again, believe me… you will want to.
Update: Now that the episode has aired we can actually do the full recap of White Collar midseason finale:
Neal: Take Peter add years of experience and less inclination to cut as slack
Neal: He know enough of our Degas to scare the hell out of me
Agent Kramer: You are awful close to the person you suspect took the Degas
Agent Kramer: When this happens you are not putting cuffs on a criminal. You are taking down a friend. Peter, you need to protect yourself.
Agent Kramer: If Neal is a suspect, you need to treat him like that.
Neal: Must be nice having someone trust you
Peter: Never gave him a reason not to
