White Collar - 6.01 - Borrowed Time - Recap
Previously - Neal and Rebecca searched for the Hope Diamond's twin, Peter turned down a job in Washington, El got a job in Washington, both Rebecca and the FBI screwed Neal over, Rebecca was arrested for killing a Fed, Mozzie and Neal planned to escape, and Neal was kidnapped.
Note - I know that Boots is actually Booth, but before I knew his name I noticed the boots he was clomping around in and the name stuck. He's Boots to me.
Best Scene / Best Reaction - Neal to seeing Peter playing Fat Charlie
Funniest Scene - Peter, Diana, and Jones turn to look at Mozzie for answers but he just sits back and snarks
Best Twist - El is pregnant and back in New York with Peter
Weirdest Reaction - Neal thanks his kidnapper for kidnapping him
Silliest Name - The world's scariest crime syndicate calls themselves the Pink Panthers? Bwah? That's too goofy to not be true.
Least Clever Thief - The head of the Pick Panthers has an ordinary wall safe. How pedestrian of him.
Best Deductive Skills - Diana, who realizes that Mozzie wouldn't stick around if he weren't telling the truth
Shrewdest Negotiator - Peter, who offers Rebecca nothing and still gets everything
The "I Know What I'd Choose" Award - Neal says, "Your options are prison, death, or trusting me. What's it going to be?" In all things but my money, I'd follow Neal wherever.
The "Yeah, There's Nothing Simple About This Plan" Award - Neal and Mozzie seem to feel that zip lining between buildings is no big deal. Yeah, I don't think so. Especially not via belt.
Most Anticlimactic Kidnapping - To be honest, it is a tossup between Neal talking his way out and Trubel getting a club invite on Grimm. Either way these are disappointing follow ups to a cliffhanger.
Best Quotes -
1. Mozzie: "I know all your interrogation techniques, Suit. I'm never going to crack. I'm also aided by the fact that I have no idea what you're talking about."
2. Peter: "Hmm, maybe I'll put an anklet on you next." Mozzie: "I would gnaw my leg off."
3. Moz: "Mrs. Suit asked me to make sure you eat something not made out of green clovers and purple horseshoes. Less magically delicious."
4. Neal: "It's good to see you." Peter: "You know I'm always here for you."
