White Collar Review: "In the Red"

at . Comments

Sara was back for another episode last night - and what more can I say then I just love her character! She is a no nonsense, take no prisoners lady who knew that Neal was up to no good.

It was wonderful to see her not give up on finding out what Neal was up to. But, how was she able to get a search warrant when he was able to pass the lie detector test?

Side note, that whole scene where Neal was able to pass the lie detector test - was pretty cool! Is that really a way to do that? And why didn't anyone catch Neal taking the pin? It was pretty obvious if you ask me!

I definitely can feel some sexual tension between Neal and Sara - particularly when he opened the door shirtless. Did you catch the way she was looking at him? He really is one gorgeous specimen of a man...

Is it getting hot in here??

In the Red Scene

Okay okay, I certainly like how the "In the Red" storyline started with catching a jewel thief - a pretty common white collar crime - to busting a man who extorted money from the thief so that she could keep her child. Sounds a bit confusing - but one thing is for certain, the show was highly entertaining.

It was fun watching Jones and Barrigan go undercover as a married couple. In the last couple episodes we've seen a funny side to Jones that I really like! He's actually really good at pretending to be undercover - from the bad tough guy one week to the rich Hampton man another - it has all been very amusing. Keep up the good work Agent Jones!

In a special treat John Larroquette starred as the ever elusive extortionist. I've loved this man since Night Court, but wasn't that impressed with his acting chops last night. The scene where Donovan was captured and forced to admit he was the extortionist was a bit rushed - don't you think?

And would the mob guys really be willing to work so closely with the FBI? I was surprised by that too. Although, it was pretty enjoyable watching them fake beat up Neal.

Neal finally got to listen to what was on the tape and evidently Kate really was killed - but she made a call seconds before. Now, who do you think she called? Do you still think there's a possibility that Kate is alive?

This episode was absolutely fun - without question. White Collar is a must see show and personally I can't wait to see what happens next week. What did you think of last night's episode?

I want to know where the silent door alarm can be bought on the latest episode (Friday the 17th)


I really enjoy the White Collar show and love Neal Caffery.
It feels like Neal is getting less respect on more put downs from Peter, don't like that much. Does anybody else see this?


BTW, I also appreciated the gratuitous shirtlessness.


Would a pin work to pass a lie detector test? Mythbusters says not to pass a polygraph. They tested both pain and thinking happy thoughts at lies & angry thoughts when telling the truth, and the polygraph analyst called guilty & innocent parties consistently. However, Neal knew and identified that it wasn't a polygraph but another voice stress detector. Sarah acknowledged his determination, and said that it was easier and she didn't need to hire an analyst. So, for this particular one... plausible.


I agree. Matt Bomer really is one gorgeous specimen of a man!


Too bad he's gay...


You may like Sarah, I don't. Can't wait for her to be gone. Neil is too pretty boyish for me but next week...? Peter Burke in T shirt and jeans *fans self* now it's getting hot in here. :)
