White Collar “Taking Stock” Recap

This week on White Collar, Neal (Matt Bomer) doesn’t waste any time telling Peter (Tim DeKay) that he doesn’t want a new handler once Peter goes to Washington. He wants the FBI to take all of their case files into consideration and let him go free. But first they have to bag and tag all of the evidence from Rebecca’s (Bridget Regan) case. While they do that, one of her burner phones rings and they get a lead on a new case.


In order to take this case, Peter needs someone that can pass for Rebecca to go undercover. He brings Diana (Marsha Thomason) back from maternity leave early so she can impersonate Rebecca. When they get the assignment, the guy that is going to hire Rebecca for the job agrees to meet with her, but indicates that he will use her signal so she will know it is him. Unfortunately, they don’t know what her signal is, so Peter has to bring Rebecca into the FBI so they can find out.

After some mind games, they discover her signal is a watch, worn upside down, set at 10:20. Rebecca demands to talk to Neal in return for this information. Diana meets their target, Conrad Worth (Steven Pasquale), but he isn’t sure that she is who she says she is, so Neal has to get some additional background from Rebecca. Diana gets the job – stealing a thumb drive with some priceless information. The drive contains an illegal trading algorithm that was designed to be used on the stock market.


Peter and Elizabeth (Tiffani Thiessen) work on packing up their house for the big move to Washington. Peter confides to Elizabeth that Neal wants to get off of his anklet and he doesn’t think Neal is ready. Elizabeth suggests that the situation with Rebecca might have been a wake up call for him. She wears a blue/green burnout tee to pack. I thought this JCrew Prima Jersey Drop-Shoulder Tee ($45) was similar:

The next day, Diana and Neal prepare to steal the thumb drive, but there is an emergency with Diana’s son and she has to leave Neal to handle the caper himself. The emergency turns out to be Mozzie (Willie Garson) stopping by to visit his namesake, Teddy, and harassing Diana’s babysitter. Neal almost gets caught in the act, but manages to get out with the thumb drive in hand.


Diana takes the thumb drive back to Conrad Worth, but he was tipped off that Diana is in fact not Rebecca and her cover is blown. The team is still able to make the arrest, but they are left wondering who tipped him off. They discover that the tip came from the Metropolitan Corrections Center and Rebecca was the one that tipped him off.

In the end, Peter and Neal come full circle. Neal tells Peter that he can go straight if the FBI releases him from his anklet, but before they go into detail Peter gets a call saying that Rebecca has escaped from prison.

We see Rebecca on the balcony at Neal’s apartment looking over Mozzie as he has a glass of wine!

What do you think will happen next? Will Rebecca hurt Mozzie?

White Collar “Shot Through the Heart” Recap

Neal (Matt Bomer) is still reeling from learning of Rebecca’s (Bridget Regan) betrayal. Peter (Tim DeKay) decides that they should go on like nothing has happened so they have the upper hand. Neal starts to realize that everything this entire season has been orchestrated by Curtis Hagen (Mark Sheppard) and Rebecca and that he played right into their hands.

Peter confides in Elizabeth (Tiffani Thiessen) that he’s not sure Neal can keep up appearances and keep Rebecca busy while the FBI raids her apartment. Elizabeth wears a black blouse and white jeans. I pulled this Joie Marlo Blouse ($218) and these Gap Skimmer Jeans ($69.95) to recreate the look:

Once Rebecca arrives at Neal’s apartment, Peter starts the team’s raid on her apartment. Unfortunately, one of the agents trips her security system and an alarm on her phone goes off. She tries to leave Neal by making up some excuse about a doctor’s appointment, but he is determined to slow her down. He goes as far as telling her that he loves her to make her stay. Peter is smart and puts Chinese takeout menus at everyone’s doors in the complex so Rebecca thinks that is what tripped her security system.

The team was able to get surveillance in Rebecca’s apartment and end up watching her leave a voice mail on Neal’s phone saying that she loves him too. It looks pretty realistic and the team thinks that she may have really fallen for Neal. He refuses to believe it and wants to cut ties.

Peter decides to see how she will respond to him taking Neal away and brings her in for questioning. He creates a fake story about how Neal is the prime suspect in Curtis Hagen’s death. She takes the bait and tells Neal to meet her in Madison Square Garden. Rebecca starts to tell Neal the truth, but then she notices the FBI team and starts to run. She gets away and leaves the team wondering what her next move is.


Peter and Neal go back to investigate her apartment. As they start to get close to a discovery, Neal gets shot at by a sniper/Rebecca. That doesn’t stop him and he ends up finding her go bag of passports, money, etc.

They still don’t have any evidence to hold Rebecca if they catch her, so Peter and Neal try to walk through Siegel’s murder again. The end up coming up with an idea of where she might have tossed the murder weapon. They have to dig up a concrete sidewalk to find the gun she used, but that is all they need to arrest her.

Jones discovers that Rebecca is really Rachel Turner, a former MI5 agent that went rogue. Peter tells Neal to go home and quit beating himself up over this case. He decides to take matters into his own hands and leaves her a message saying that he will trade the blackmail evidence that she has on him for the Mosconi information she wants.

He sets up a meet with Rebecca and is able to destroy the blackmail she has on him. Before she can run the FBI arrives to arrest her.


Peter finally admits to Neal that he is moving to Washington in two weeks and that Jones (Sharif Atkins) will be his new handler.

Now that Rebecca has been arrested and Peter is moving to D.C. there is nothing to keep Mozzie (Willie Garson) and Neal from going after the Hope Diamond.

Elizabeth arrives home from D.C. to tell Peter that she got a job at the Washington Gallery and now their move can finally be official. She wears a white blazer and a white and black patterned blouse with black jeans. To recreate this look, I found the Joie Iva Silk blouse ($198) and this Kim Rogers blazer ($39.99):

Rebecca/Rachel calls Neal from prison and promises to see him soon…

What did you think about this week’s episode of White Collar? Will Neal and Peter really move on? Will Neal and Mozzie find the diamond? What do you think Rebecca will do next?

White Collar “Live Feed” Recap

Peter (Tim DeKay) is in turmoil this week after Neal’s (Matt Bomer) betrayal. He can’t let it go, but he doesn’t want to lose his career over it either. Of course as everything is up in the air, he gets offered the section chief job in Washington D.C. starting in two weeks.


Jones (Sharif Atkins) brings a new case in but Peter doesn’t want to involve Neal this time. Jones knows something is up and advises Peter to end the cycle and quit letting Neal hold him back.

Neal is on his way to finish the Mosconi window deal with Hagen (Mark Sheppard), but Hagen turns the tables on him by kidnapping Rebecca (Bridget Regan) to keep Neal under his thumb.


Peter meets with Elizabeth (Tiffani Thiessen) to discuss the section chief job. She is ready to move, but he isn’t ready to let go yet. He’s made his peace with Neal’s betrayal but he can’t forget what happened to Siegel and needs to solve his murder. Elizabeth wears a sold-out Narciso Rodriguez Blue Colorblock Short Sleeve Dress. This Kenneth Cole ‘Andrea’ Colorblock Sheath Dress ($58.80) is similar:

Screen Shot 2014-01-21 at 10.24.45 PM

Neal and Mozzie (Willie Garson) bring Hagen the glass key from the Mosconi window, but Hagen doesn’t bring Rebecca. He decides to hold her until Neal cracks the code.

In the meantime, Peter needs Neal for an art forgery case that implicates Hagen. Neal tries to buy some time by having Mozzie decipher Mosconi’s code. As the FBI is on their way to arrest Hagen, Neal burns the Mosconi pages to try to get Hagen to reveal Rebecca’s location. He has Mozzie memorize the page symbols so they can recreate it later. Neal is able to rescue Rebecca and they have a touching reunion.

With Rebecca’s help, Neal realizes that they are on a treasure hunt for the Hope Diamond’s lost twin. Peter arrests Hagen, but in the interrogation Hagen points the finger at Neal. Hagen offers Peter a deal – he has something to show him if he comes to his house. Jones pulls Neal’s tracking data and discovers that he was with Hagen all afternoon.

Peter decides to visit Hagen’s apartment, but before they go inside Hagen tells them that he is working to set them up and before he can say more is shot by a sniper!

Neal discovers a receipt in Hagen’s wallet that gives him a lead. The receipt is for a location on the same block where Siegel was murdered. They visit the location and discover that Hagen was watching someone. The Cooper 3 clue that Siegel left leads them to an apartment that has files on every FBI agent on Peter’s team.

Neal further discovers the room where Rebecca was being held and realizes that this is her apartment and she has been conning him the whole time. She is also now the main suspect in Siegel’s murder!

I didn’t see that coming!!

What do you think about Rebecca’s betrayal?! Do you think Rebecca will have an explanation? Will Neal dump her?

White Collar “No Good Deed” Recap

We pick up where we left off – Neal (Matt Bomer) and Rebecca (Bridget Regan) the morning after. Things seem to be going well, but Neal wants to distance her from his dealings with Hagen.

Back at the office, Jones (Sharif Atkins) brings one of the Welsh gold coins that Neal stole and drops it on Peter’s (Tim Dekay) desk. This is their first lead in the case. Someone is trying to unload the coins and Peter is determined to find out who the fence is. Neal hits the pavement to find out who the fence is, but Peter doesn’t trust him. So he uses a lunch date that Elizabeth (Tiffani Thiessen) had with Mozzie (Willie Garson) to blackmail Mozzie into giving up a name. Neal and Mozzie are able to recover in time, but Peter is very suspicious.


This doesn’t stop them from planning to steal the Mosconi stained glass window for Hagen. Rebecca insists on coming along to be a lookout and Neal agrees. Meanwhile, Peter confides in Elizabeth that he knows Neal is up to something. She wears a purple chemise and eyelet robe. To recreate the look I found this Calvin Klein Essentials Chemise ($42) and this Natori Women’s Shangri La Wrap ($94):

Screen Shot 2014-01-08 at 8.56.09 PM

Peter tracks Neal to the window right after he stole it. Mozzie and Rebecca get away with the window and Neal goes back to try to turn Peter off the trail. Peter can’t wait anymore and confronts Neal about stealing the coins. Peter plays Neal and tells him that Jones caught the fence even though they didn’t have him. Neal finally confesses to stealing the coins and bribing the prosecutor to free Peter. He doesn’t tell him about Hagen or the window. Neal convinces Peter to talk to Elizabeth before he arrests him. If Peter is indicted, then his career is over, even if he turns out to be innocent. Peter worries what it says about him if he ignores the situation.

He talks to Elizabeth and she asks him to make sure he really needs to turn himself in and ruin his career. She wears an olive, military-style blouse. I found this similar Vince Camuto blouse for $39.90:

Screen Shot 2014-01-08 at 9.01.55 PM

Things change when Jones walks in with the real Decker and starts to question him. Peter decides to confront the prosecutor and gives him an ultimatum – either he turn in the coins and resign or Peter will arrest him on the spot. The prosecutor resigns and Peter gets the coins. He tells Neal that this is a compromise that he will never make again. They both agree that things need to change between them.

What do you thing that means? Will Peter find out about Neal’s partnership with Hagen? Will Mozzie and Neal be able to trade the window for Hagen’s evidence on Neal?

White Collar “Digging Deeper” Recap

Peter (Tim DeKay) and Jones (Sharif Atkins) are trying to figure out what Neal  (Matt Bomer) is up to. Jones gives him the benefit of the doubt, but Peter knows he is missing something.

The whole team is trying to figure out what the card in Siegel’s wallet meant, but nobody is having any luck. In the midst of that investigation, Neal and Peter get pulled into a case about a dinosaur egg. They return the missing egg to the lab it was intended for, but the lab worker informs them that there was supposed to be a skeleton of the mother that accompanied it. Now the team is on the case for a missing Tyrannosaurus Rex skeleton.

In the meantime, Neal, Mozzie (Willie Garson) and Rebecca (Bridget Regan) are digging deeper into the Mosconi Codex mystery. Mozzie is skeptical of Neal’s relationship with Rebecca – he goes as far as to vet her just in case Neal needs the information.

Peter and team find a lead in their dinosaur case, a Mr. Forsythe (Zjeklo Ivanek), a ruthless businessman with a penchant for collecting dinosaur fossils. Neal sneaks into Forsythe’s office to try to get Peter enough information for a warrant. Unfortunately, the stolen goods that Neal finds in his office have reached the statute of limitations so Peter can’t prosecute for it.


Jones does find out that Neal has been spending time with Rebecca from their previous case at the Gershon museum. This intrigues Peter and he decides to crash Neal’s date with Rebecca. He gets Elle (Tiffani Thiessen) to come with him to crash the date at a place she’s always wanted to go to. Elle wears a floral tank top with a white cardigan. This Obey Hanky Panky Camisole Tank Top ($14.99) along with this Kim Rogers Cardigan ($24.99) are similar:

Screen Shot 2014-01-06 at 12.34.33 PM

Peter and Elizabeth crash Neal’s date and makes it really awkward for Neal. Neal covers with Peter by saying that he didn’t know how to tell Rebecca that he was a felon. Elizabeth wears a teal dress with a python clutch. This Tart Patrice Dress ($83.99) and Python clutch ($38.99) would be a great recreation of this look:

Screen Shot 2014-01-06 at 1.22.19 PM

Before anything can get more awkward, Peter and Neal get called away on the dinosaur case as someone is trying to still the dinosaur egg from the museum lab. They capture the thief and find out that Forsythe commissioned him to steal the egg. This doesn’t help them because they still don’t know where the skeleton is. They decide to have Neal and Mozzie forge the egg and try to sell it to Forsythe and catch him in the act. The plan works and they safely return the the skeleton to the museum.

Peter and Elizabeth invite Neal over for dinner to convince him to tell Rebecca the truth about who he is. Elizabeth wears a teal blouse which is similar to the blouse she wore in Ice Breaker. The Spense Trimmed Woven Collar Top ($14.49) from my previous recreation works for this one too:

Screen Shot 2014-01-06 at 1.49.14 PM

Afterwards, Neal enjoys some wine with June on his balcony and admits he stole one of the pieces from Forsythe’s collection because it was there. Rebecca comes over and he finally tells her who he really is. She doesn’t seem to have a problem with that and they sleep together.

The next day Curtis Hagen confronts Neal that he knows Neal was going to steal the Mosconi glass window and that Neal is going to steal it for him instead.

What did you think about this week’s episode? What do you think about Neal’s downfall back to the dark side? Will Peter find out what he is up to?

White Collar “Quantico Closure” Recap

This week on White Collar, Peter (Tim DeKay) celebrates the anniversary of meeting Elizabeth (Tiffani Thiessen) at the same restaurant where they had their first date. The date gets interrupted when his ex, and former classmate at Quantico, Jill Stone (Kim Dickens), shows up. Turns out she hunted Peter down so he could help her out with a case. Elle wears a green scoopneck dress. I found a similar Alex Marie Cole Pleated-Neckline Dress for $129:

green dress

In the meantime, Neal (Matt Bomer) gets a little too close to Rebecca (Bridget Regan) as they work to solve the mystery of the Moscone Codex.

Jill visits Peter at the office and fills him in on her current case. She is going undercover for a software deal and needs a partner that is familiar with the New York landscape. He heads home to tell Elizabeth that he will be working with Jill undercover, but she busts in before he gets the chance to, making Elizabeth uncomfortable. Elle wears the Joie Anka V-Neck Blouse ($224.09). I found a similar Lush blouse for $29.99:

orange blouse

Peter gets a lead on Seigel’s missing badge and sends Neal and Jones (Sharif Atkins) out to investigate. The end up getting carjacked by someone using Seigel’s badge, which is their first lead on his murder!

Elle stops by to drop off lunch for Peter, but she sees him getting cozy with Jill and gets jealous and leaves. Mozzie (Willie Garson) convinces Elle to follow Peter and Jill to see what is going on. Elle wears a grey shift dress. I found a similar Jones New York tailored dress for $129:

grey dress

She convinces Neal to tag along as she investigates Jill and they see them enter a hotel together. Elle follows them inside and Neal convinces her to wait at the bar while he tries to pull a room number. Things get interesting as she runs into Peter and Jill’s mark. She tries to stall him and he ends up hiding his software chip in her cell phone before he runs off.

Jill and Peter get captured by mercenaries before they can make the exchange. Neal and Elle bust into the room and save the day. Elle is cool as a cucumber and I love it!

All’s well that ends well, with Peter finding another lead in Siegel’s case and Neal and Rebecca making a breakthrough with the Moscone Codex. Neal is getting a little too comfortable with Rebecca and I think this will lead to trouble for him.

What did you think about this week’s episode? Do you think Neal’s deal with the Dutchman had anything to do with Siegel’s death? Will Rebecca expose Neal to Peter?
