Why are Cape Verdeans speaking Spanish when their official language is Portuguese? Other than that it was a good episode.
And Ginger, it's a work of fiction grounded in reality. Hence some things are expected of the show.
Terrible episode and the writers should be fired on the spot. The whole thing was one big contrived mess trying to find a way to get Neil back to NY. The writers should just realize that the old storyline of the show is dead and the story has moved to a new direction. Yes, the story did use to be the "Sting" but due to the way the writers have written it, it is "the fugitive". It had the potential to be a great new basis for a show but the writers only seem to understand a single cookie cutter script to which they are trying to mold the show. Does anyone seriously believe that from the background sounds in a single *cell phone* call one can determine the location on the planet?? What is the basis for the search warrant on Peter's house? Why would a criminal boss side with a rogue FBI agent when Neil is offering him a guaranteed income. At worst he would have just shook Neil down for more. The whole thing stinks like nothing else... Don't think I can continue to watch this mess....
cape verde - language - PORTUGUESE, not SPANISH...
Peter's true friendship for Niel was confirmed when he admitted that he gave the signal for Niel to run and be free. Every inch of Peter is to "do it by the book". As much as his friendship means to him, it would be more in character if Peter found a legal way to help Niel, that did not also incriminate himself and his team. It was reckless of Peter to leave the map available, when he himself repeated how ruthless Collins was. He should have been more careful. It's ironic how much Peter thought he was helping Niel, when Niel was fine and Peter's actions lead Collins straight to Niel. Peter should have trusted that the better way to help Niel would be to leave it alone. Probably helping slow down the process on his end would have been more helpful.
BTW, my favorite moment was when the little boy lead Peter to see Neal in that tower, and Peter couldn't contain his glee at seeing his best friend, so he hugged him! AWWWWWW! See, Peter couldn't live with himself if anything happened to Neal, because they've been crime solving partners and friends for too long for Neal to not be like part of Peter's family. I just hope that Peter gets the drop on that nasty crazy agent before he pops Neal with a gun. And I hope that they all get back to NY, because I think that is where Neal and Mozzies hearts are, and where they can interact with Mrs Suit and Diana and Jones. I LOVED the sandcastle version of NY that Neal made, BTW...so gorgeous.
Good episode. Obviously, Neal won't be a fugitive for half the season so some storylines will be contrived.
Reviewer, I think you mean Collins was "akin" to a bull running through a china shop...you might want to catch that typo because it makes the sentence hard to parse.
Watchestoomuch, I think you are wrong about Peter, he loves Neal, much in the way that House loved Wilson, and he is willing to go to great lengths to see that his best friend isn't killed by Kramer the rogue agent with an agenda. I think the fact that Peter will bend the rules to help the people he loves only makes him a better FBI agent. I also think Neal has loosened Peter up and made him better able to bend the rules to see justice done. I loved this episode and I love this show. I am so glad to see everyone back in action, especially Mrs Suit, and Mozzie. I adore Mozzie, and hope he comes back to NYC soon, too.
Just focus on Peter for a moment. Peter has been a rigidly adhered to the law throughout the show. It is completely out of character for Peter to commit a felony and involve his staff in felonious behavior by aiding a federal fugitive, even if the fugitive is a friend. A Peter who is willing to break the law when it suits his personal purposes is a new character. Right or wrong?
The entire premise of this show is fiction so why are so many commentators hung up on the veracity of the plot. Neal and Mozzie had to escape New York but the show revolves around the working relationship of Burke and Neal so obviously the writers must find a way to bring Neal back to New York. This is a "Sting" series not "The Fugitive" so I can't imagine they will spend the entire season moving Neal around the globe. I think we should just sit back and enjoy the vacation.
