For those who think Peter is wrong; let's not forget what he has given up to help Neal, including nearly his career. Also, Neal was still running a con on Peter with his "word games". He told Peter he wouldn't show Sam the tape knowing Peter didn't want Neal seeing Sam without back up and when Peter realized Neal was seeing Sam he jumped to a familiar conclusion. Word games from Neal! They are dealing with, potentially, corruption raining down on them in torrents & Neal's life being in serious danger & Neal is playing word games. Right now both Peter & Neal are being watched closely after the island escape and Neal could be sent back to prison & Peter could be demoted or fired in disgrace. No room for word games or secrets between them & Peter is in the doghouse with Neal & some viewers for trying to keep Neal out of prison. Neal can be his own worst enemy at times & keeping Peter at arms length & out of the loop is extremely dangerous!
I agree that Neal and Peter need to get on the same page, and soon...they both have trust issues, but their friendship shouldn't be severed over this, especially since Sam is obviously not who he says he is (I am wondering, like everyone else, if he is Neal's father) The one thing that really disappointed me about this ep was that we didn't get to see Mozzie very much, and I love him! It was good to see more of Elizabeth, because she is a great character, too, and yes, seeing Peter and Neal with no shirts was truly a sight for sore eyes!
I disagree that Peter is trying to micro-manage Neal. I believe that it is his way of protecting those that he cares about...even Mozzie agrees with Peter. From the previews I think we will all know that Sam is the one who doesn't trust Neal.
I was thinking Sam was Neil's father, but it doesn't make sense for him to string Neil along, almost abusively. There is something nefarious about his behavior.
I agree that Peter is a controller and this trait is pushing Neal away. Love Neal in the fight scene, he really showed his hurt & frustration with Peter. Love "Mrs Suit" who is so classy & understanding of Peter's job and Mozzie with all his conspiracy theories. I'm a little sick of Jones & The woman agents snide remarks about Neal. I think it's jealousy. I have really lost all respect for them.
who was the actress who play the younger verison of Ellen I agree that sam is either neal father or one of the cops
They did reveal in the trailer for the summer finale that Sam may or may not be who he says he is. My money is on a corrupt cop impersonating Sam, or Neil's father. Either way I'm excited to see how it turns out (or hangs on a cliff more likely... but still)
I think sam isn't who he says he is. I think he is one off the DC corrupt cops and came to see what neal had on them. Trashed his own place and gained neals trust.
Because we don't really know who he is, didn't have a photo in his file only a name
oh come on! peter has every right to NOT trust neal- exactly how many times has neal gone behind peter's back? He actually at one point broke into his house! neal has been a criminal for so long, and peter is an FBI agent. the idea that peter has control issues? Neal is not a normal consultant, he's a criminal. Has he been less criminally in the past? yes, but every couple of episodes Neal tries to run a con on Peter. It's amazing Peter hasn't severed the partnership yet.
Good episode although I don't get what took so long to reveal what was on the tape.
It wasn't really a surprise that Sam took off and that Peter went and talked to him. Neal has every right to be angry. Peter finally needs to learn to trust Neal. Next week's finale should be interesting......
Good review! Peter has pushed Neil too far for too long. Peter doesn't realize that Neil only "allows" him to have control. Peter has messed up too many times and caused more harm than good because of his control issues.
