Reeling from the revelation that Rebecca murdered two men while using him to get to the diamond, Neal finally comes clean to Peter of about the truth of the Mosconi Codex.  Seeing the deep hurt in his CI, Peter worries that Neal may not be able to keep up appearances long enough for the FBI to build a case against Rebecca.  But while Neal proves more than up to the task, the waters are muddied when he learns that Rebecca may have developed real feelings for him.  

Determined to end things once and for all, Peter uses Rebecca’s emotions against her by positioning Neal as the prime suspect in Hagen’s murder.  Sure enough, their plan drives Rebecca straight to Neal, but when she sees through the ruse at the last minute, her true, dangerous colors come out and she flees. 

Now, as the FBI draws closer to Rebecca’s real identity and finally finds evidence tying her to Agent Seigel’s death, Neal slowly comes to grips with the true nature of their complicated relationship and realizes he’s the one person that can bring her in.  But while Peter won’t use Neal as bait for a second time, what he doesn’t know is that Rebecca still has Hagen’s blackmail tape, and Neal will go to any lengths to get it back - even if it means putting himself in the line of fire…

About White Collar

White Collar centers on the unlikely crime-solving partnership between Neal Caffrey (Matt Bomer), a charming con man turned consultant for the FBI, and Peter Burke (Tim DeKay), the Federal Agent charged with keeping him on the right side of the law.

When Neal escaped from a maximum-security prison to find his long-lost love, Peter had to bring him to justice - for the second time. Rather than return to jail, Neal suggested an alternate plan: he would provide his criminal expertise to assist the Feds in catching other elusive criminals in exchange for his eventual freedom. Initially wary, Peter quickly found that Neal provided insight and intuition that couldn't be found on the right side of the law.

Since then, Peter and Neal have amassed an enviable record within the White Collar Crimes Unit and laid the foundation for a deep friendship. But as some have said about Neal, once a con, always a con, and while his unique skills have helped Peter close some high profile cases, his methods have endangered both his friends and fellow colleagues and drawn increased scrutiny from the higher-ups.

Eventually, Neal earned a chance to have his sentence commuted, but when he realized the scales of justice were unfairly weighted against him, Neal did the only thing left for him to do: he ran. Although Manhattan may be in his rearview, the past won't stay behind him for long, and soon both he and Peter will have to face the consequences of the choices they have made.
