reface - This recap took me days to do. I kept getting off a geeky research girl tangents. Good news - I may now be the leading expert on season 2 coffee mugs. Bad news - no one cares and I still don't know what Ivan Bliminse has to do with the invisible man. Anyone know? Welcome back to White Collar! January never looked so good.
Previously - Kate died, the music box hid a code, Neal pulled a gun on Fowler, Fowler knew Burke's mystery man (Julian Larssen), and Mozzie got shot! Aaahhh! Why cliffhang me like that writers? Why?
I like this episode. It answered many of the questions I had before hiatus while amping up the tension for future episodes. I am surprised they used this story line so close to Prisoner's Dilemma and I didn't like the nonsensical plot devices, but they were tempered by some great scenes with Mozzie and Neal as well as a interesting con. Mostly I liked how the secondary and lead characters worked together throughout the whole episode. White Collar's biggest strength to me is the secondary characters and it was fun to having everyone on screen together. Kuddos!
Next week - Andrew McCarthy is Vincent Adler. But most importantly, it's the flashback episode that I've been waiting for months to see. Neal meets Mozzie, Peter has that hideous mustache, and hopefully I finally understand what's so special about Kate. Be on the lookout for Willie Garson's son Nathan also.
White Collar airs on the USA Network on Tuesdays at 10/9 central.
