white-collar-spoilers-quotes-midseason-premiere-checkmateWhite Collar left last summer with a jaw dropping mid season finale in which we didn´t know if Elizabeth Burke was dead or alive when she got kidnapped.
And now White Collar comes back with six new episodes starting on Tuesday, January 17 10/9 C on USA Network. (While at it, you can enter my White Collar contest and giveaway until Jan 25)

Mark your calendars, for Season three of White Collar returns with six edge-of-your seat episodes on Tuesday, January 17 at 10/9c.
Remember in the summer finale, Peter Burke’s (DeKay) world crumbled to pieces when he found out Neal (Bomer) was in possession of the stolen Nazi treasure and his wife Elizabeth (Thiessen) was kidnapped as a result.  Now with an uncertain future and both his personal and professional life at stake, what will Peter do? What has happened to Elizabeth? And will Neal choose a side?

Keller: You. Yet. But it´s starting to cross my mind Mozzie.

Keller: This is gonna be fun. Who´s excited? You? Anyone?

Keller: Why didn´t you leave?
Neal: You´ve seen what I have here. Where would I go.
Keller: Well, everybody would know you betrayed them.

Peter: Are you saying you care?
Mozzie: About Mrs Suit.

Neal: We have fifty five minutes to load everything up

Keller: What is it?
Neal: Apparently they skipped lunch.

Peter: Jones, we need to find her now. Every second counts.

Neal: Just like old times.

Neal: What part of no killing didn´t you get?

Elizabeth: Go get him. Then come back to me.

Neal: Not a Raphael… you wouldn´t

Keller: Easy boy. I have the wife, remember?
Peter: Not anymore.

Peter: How did you make that shot?
Neal: Long Story.

Mozzie: What now?
Neal: Keller needs to go away forever and to make that happen, I need to give a full confession.
Mozzie: That means prison. Lot of it.
Neal: I know. I´ll turn myself in in the morning. That should give you twelve hours of head start.

Mozzie: I always have a contingency plan.

Neal: If you want a happy ending, it depends on where you stop the story.

Mozzie: Til the next chapter
Neal: Til the next chapter.

Peter: Are you willing to give away everything?
Neal: Yes.
Peter: I am glad to hear that.

Peter: I know what you were prepared to do, and it means a lot to me

Neal: What does it mean?
Peter: It means no anklet, no nothing. In three months you can be a free man

Will Neal Caffrey be free? Will he still be working together with Peter Burke? Five more episodes will still be on White Collar, so that means, it may end with precisely that cliffhanger. The moment where Neal becomes free.
