Neal and Peter launch an investigation into who shot Mozzi, who is in a medically induced coma in the hospital. The investigation leads them straight to a man named Julian Larson, who eventually manages to set Peter up by planting fingerprints from his favorite coffee mug on the magazine of the gun used to shoot Mozzie.
As a result, Peter and Neal, without the aid of the FBI, form Burke’s six - or should we say seven? - to find another way to apprehend Larson. Neal brings Sara Ellis, the Sterling/Bosh insurance agent in on the con, and Elizabeth, while delivering a care basket to the recently awakened Mozzie, gently convinces him to aid in their efforts as well. They run a seven person con to pin Larson for his illegal smuggling activities, allowing Burke to clear his name and be reinstated at the FBI.
In the final seconds, Mozzie reveals that the man behind the music box, Kate’s death and Mozzi being shot is very likely someone from Neal’s past, Vincent Adler, the man who made Neal the man he is today.
Neal: Do you know how much the FBI could benefit from me being able to fight?
Peter: I think New York is safer if Neal Caffrey is lacking in at least one skill set.
