White Collar Review: "Prisoner's Dilemma"

at . Comments

Last night's episode of White Collar really captured my interest and held in all night long!

So maybe we didn't get any more than just a tiny clue about Kate's death (more about that later on in the review) - but wow! I sure did love the story-of-the-week storyline!

Joe Morton on White Collar

We had a former FBI agent being set up by the bad guy - a US Marshall. Maybe this has been done before, but darnit, if it isn't just fun to watch! Normally, I am not such a huge fan of how White Collar has to wrap up every episode quickly towards the end with a nice pretty bow, but this week, the way they were able to capture the bad guy was fun!

Okay - so you have two bad guys pretty much caught red handed. Peter and Neal were able con both of them into thinking the other is telling the truth. How great is that!? So basically, at the end of the episode, it was their own faults for getting hauled to prison. Good job boys!

"Prisoner's Dilemma" finally brought back Elizabeth from her maternity leave business trip to the Golden Gates. As much as I will miss those cheesy green screen scenes, I am happy that she's back.

It was great watching Elizabeth and Mozz have a "date night". Who called it the moment that Peter and Elizabeth planned that date, it would never happen? In the end, I'm glad it was Mozz instead of Peter because it was just too cute to see Mozzie come to the rescue with a bottle of wine and a movie.

Mozz really has become the star of the show. Each week, he is able to bring the laughs and help Neal solve what mysterious case that needs to be solved - all the while enjoying a nice glass of wine.

Speaking of mysterious cases - we finally find out who Kate called! Well, of course it would be Fowler! The question is why? Do you think she called him because she knew the plane was about to blow up and she would be leaving it? Or was that really the last person she spoke to before she died?

The new boss - Kyle Bancroft really added some fun last night too. It was great seeing him work with Peter and Neal to set up the set-up and he really had me smiling when he went to the museum with Neal at the end. Hopefully, Kyle will become a regular!

Until next week, we leave you with a few of our favorite White Collar quotes:

Neal: You know from the moment I met you I knew You were a man of fine taste. | permalink
Mozzie: It was nice to see you Mrs. Suit.
Elizabeth: It was nice to see you too Mozz. | permalink
Elizabeth: Mozzie? What are you doing here?
Mozzie: Date night. | permalink
Mozzie: You can never trust anyone who spells with dollar signs in their license plates. | permalink
Mozzie: Mi casa es suit casa. | permalink
Mozzie: I knew this day would come - the hunter has become the hunted. | permalink
Neal: Before she became a CI what was she in to?
Peter: She was a car thief.
Neal: Do whatcha do. | permalink

I bet you anything Kate's really not dead...


Bankcroft will most likely never become a regular as the actor Joe Morton is a series regular on SyFy's hit series Eureka.


White Collar meets The Fugitive and wow was that a fun ride. The script was tight and clever, brilliant one liners too many to count. :) Everyone brought their A game. And it worked beautifully. Peter was awesome as usual but that's no surprise as TDK is made of awesome so everything his character does is awesome. Neal was great working with Jones and I loved the gang being protective of Peter too as we've often seen him being protective of them, nice to see they feel the same way. Mozzie surprisingly wasn't annoying as he sometimes is. Telling El everything and assuring her Peter's ok and aiding the fugitives by giving them refuge in his hid out. I'm glad Neal got to go to that Art thing I think? With Bankcroft still I thought he was a little selfish bringing it up when it was clearly not the time and Peter, Diana and Jones were obvisiously tired. I didn't blame them for ignoring Neal though some would say different. Neal has the anklet key which is not going to turn out well, and when he screws up like this it's usually Peter that has to pay the price. Nice going Neal. This was the best episode yet of the season loved it.
