Parting Shot

White Collar Parting Shots

A $50 million insurance settlement brings Sara back to enlist Neal and Peter's aid in investigating Sophie Covington, a wealthy young widow whose hedge funder husband, Grant, died in what appeared to be an accident. Sara wants to make sure that Sophie isn't getting away with murder, but when Neal intervenes to save her from a kidnapping attempt, they realize that Sophie is more prey than predator.

Sophie is reluctant to talk to the FBI after the kidnapping attempt, but she will talk to her knight in shining armor. Soon, the team has zeroed in on Will Mailer, a business partner of Grant's who may have blood on his hands and designs on Sophie's insurance settlement. If Will thought someone else was going after the money, perhaps they could bait a trap for him? With Neal already undercover, it wouldn't be a stretch to convince Will that the con man has Sophie in his cross hairs. But when Sophie develops feelings for Neal, the case becomes more complicated.

Meanwhile, as Ellen's days in the city wind down, she prepares to make good on her promise to Neal by introducing him to a man with ties to his father. Little do they realize that digging into the past will bring it right to their doorstep.

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.
