White Collar Review: "Copycat Caffrey"

at . Comments

Last night's episode of White Collar reminded me why I LOVE this show!

"Copycat Caffrey" moved us one step closer in finding more information regarding the elusive music box, while showing us not only how cool white collar crimes can be, but that anyone can do it! Even college kids!

All kidding aside, I really enjoyed this weeks plot. Having the teacher be the puppet master was great. Although the college kids seemed all too eager to be actual thieves. The scene where they set up to steal the gold coins was pretty much a giveaway. What I didn't expect was Caffrey for the second week in a row being outwitted. What's goin' on Neal? Slacking on the job?

Placing a Call

It was fun watching Neal glow when he heard that one of his jobs was being copied - then finding out that an entire week was dedicated to his brilliant work as a mastermind thief was genius! He reminded me of a little boy who brought home his first gold star from school - he just couldn't be prouder.

Alex was a nice touch to the show this week. Normally, I am not a huge fan of her, but this week she kept me completely fascinated. I could never be too sure which side she was playing.

It's funny because you can say the same for Neal. It's not like he came out of training and is a clone of Peter - he was a criminal and it's in him. Case in point - he let Alex leave with the painting.

The dynamics between Neal and Alex felt electrifying. I really enjoyed watching them play the con on one of the students in the bar and then again pretending to have a quarrel. Hopefully, the writers will continue to bring her back and possibly some hot and sexy scenes together? Neal is the only hot man on TV that I've seen be so great with the women, but never get any! Might as well be wearing a purity ring...

So now we know that the music box must be hiding something inside it - but what? Since Neal has the key and Peter doesn't want Neal to know that he has the box, when do you think these two will put their perspective pieces together? What do you think is inside?

This episode brought to surface all the great aspects about the show and I can honestly say, I can't wait to see what happens next! What did you think of this week's episode?
