no good deed

After all the weeks of half-truths and double crosses, the good deed Neal tried to do may finally be unraveled by the reappearance of a single Welsh gold coin.  The FBI mobilizes to trace the path of the coin back to its owner, but Neal already knows where it will lead: the Federal prosecutor whom Hagen bribed to get Peter out of prison.  Hoping to run interference, Neal convinces the prosecutor to give up the name of the fence he used to move the coin.  But Peter has his own lead, and when he arrives on the heels of his CI, Neal must move quickly to help the fence escape and stop Peter from getting too close to the truth. 

At the same time, Neal and Mozzie plot to steal the stained glass window, while Neal tries to distance Rebecca from the codex for her own safety.  But the excitement of the investigation is simply too intoxicating to give up, and Neal’s new lady love won’t be denied her piece of the action. 

Meanwhile, as the loose ends of the last few weeks pile up and Peter’s suspicions finally hit critical mass, he realizes that the path to the truth goes right through Neal. Little does he know that the answers he’ll find when he gets there will lead to a hard choice between truth and justice that could leave his entire career, and the life he has worked so hard to build, in ruins…

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.
