As I write this I just found out that next season will be the last for White Collar. The network is giving us a six-episode season six to wrap things up. While I am bummed that the show is ending, I am glad that they are giving us a chance to wrap things up. It definitely makes you appreciate the season finale.
The season finale picks up with Peter (Tim DeKay) and Neal (Matt Bomer) trying to figure out what Rebecca/Rachel’s (Bridget Regan) next move is. We learn soon enough that she poisoned Mozzie (Willie Garson) as leverage so Neal would find the diamond in exchange for an antidote.
While Peter, Neal and Mozzie hunt down the diamond, Diana (Marsha Thomason) and Jones (Sharif Atkins) are left to hunt down the poison. As they arrive at Fort Totten, a mason built fort, Mozzie makes a discovery only to succumb to the effects of the poison, thus leaving Peter and Neal to find the diamond.
Before they can find Rebecca, she finds them first when they are alone with no backup. She takes the diamond and locks Neal and Peter up so she can get away. Unfortunately, she still doesn’t give them the antidote for Mozzie, she says she will only provide it when she is safely out of the city.
Not to worry as Diana and Jones come to the rescue with a possible antidote. Elizabeth (Tiffani Thiessen) is at the hospital with Mozzie and insists that the doctors give him the antidote even though the tests haven’t been confirmed. The antidote works, and Mozzie will be fine! She wears a military green blouse while yelling at the doctor. This Glossy V-Neck Blouse from The Limited ($49.95) is similar:
Meanwhile, Neal and Peter break free and Neal tries to stop Rebecca with a reason to stay before she helicopters off the island.
Just when we think Rebecca has won, Neal reveals that she doesn’t actually have the diamond, but a piece of brick that Neal swapped in with a little slight of hand. Peter has the real diamond, leaving Rebecca with nothing. Neal convinces her that it’s finally over and that she has to stop running once her helicopter abandons her.
At the end of the day, Mozzie is better and Peter will turn the diamond over to the state department. All is well except for Neal’s freedom. Peter makes a call and recommends that Neal be released from his anklet.
As Mozzie and Neal discuss what Neal’s freedom will mean, Neal notices that he is being watched. He tells Mozzie that he will leave the criminal life after he gets his freedom.
Unfortunately, that isn’t going to happen because the FBI doesn’t want to lose Neal as an asset. This makes Peter change his mind about going to D.C., but that doesn’t stop Elizabeth who already accepted a job at the National Gallery. She is willing to try long distance, but Peter would be giving up a lot to stay in New York. She wears a grey zip up hoodie while packing up the house. This North Face Kirata Full Zip Hoodie ($90) is similar:
Neal agrees to let Mozzie crack his anklet so that he can take his freedom. Before they can figure out that plan, Neal is black bagged by the man who was following him and thrown into a van with his anklet thrown out the window.
Now that we know there are only six episodes left of the series, what do you think will happen to Neal next season? Who do you think abducted him? Will he ever get his freedom? What will happen to Peter and Elizabeth?
If you missed this week’s episode, you can still purchase it from iTunes for $2.99.
