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…
