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:
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:
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:
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.
