White Collar - Season 4

In season three, we saw master con artist Neal Caffrey (Matt Bomer, 'Chuck') advocate for his freedom. Through a hearing he could arrange for his ankle monitor to be removed and, again, be a truly free man. However, something went wrong at the last minute and, therefore, Peter gives him the signal to flee. An advice that he follows somewhat reluctantly.

In season 4, we see what happens next. Neal flees with his best friend Mozzie to a Cape Verdean island. It has - not entirely coincidental- no exchange agreement with the United States and they have a deal with the local boss that they remain completely anonymous. The two gentlemen live an idyllic life on the beautiful island. But, of course, this is not for long.

What I expected after the first episode, or maybe even already after the finale of season 3, was that Neal would remain on the run for a long time. This time not for Peter, but for other agents of the FBI. Unfortunately, this expectation (or desire?) was not fulfilled. After two episodes, Neal and Peter are back into their old pattern of solving crimes with Neal's the extensive skillset. Neal's enviable range of skills and talents makes this such a great series. However, I had hoped that the writers would step more out of their comfort zone and give the series a big twist. For example, by letting Neal use his talents to stay away from all those entities that are after him.

Of course, there is also a leading theme this season. Neal still has questions about his past which have not fully been answered. After his meeting with (and death of) Ellen, particularly questions about his father, James Bennett, remain. James is suspected of being a dirty cop and is on the run since he was accused of killing a police officer. He convinced Neal of his innocence and they go looking for Ellen's evidence box.

Especially in the later episodes, this theme becomes the main part of every episode which leads to a climax in the last installment. White Collar is known - to me at least - to come up with epicly unexpected twists in their season finals. And again, they pulled it off. But what exactly happens I won't tell.

Even though Neal is 'just' solving cases with Peter, the first and last episodes make up for this. Season 4 therefore gets 7 collars.
