So, I don't think Neal knew what was going on. I've read all these recaps that are like IS NEAL EVIL?? but I really don't think he is. It's not just wishful thinking! Every time White Collar has had a fake evil cliff hanger (Peter and the ring, Diana and music box in her safe) it has turned out to be fake. If Neal had been involved with the hanger blowing up, why would the note say "You'll thank me"? Okay, it clearly had his art in it, but that was in a storage locker that was probably pretty easy for a thief to get into. I was also pretty convinced by Neal's reaction to Peter accusing him. Saying "prove it" wasn't a particularly helpful thing to say, but it was a moment of high emotion!

So WHO THE HELL could be behind this? Or more specifically, who would do this and then just give Neal the art? This list is in order of how unlikely I think it is, from "hmmm, I guess I can see that," to "uh, what show were you watching?".

1) Mozzie. I can see him telling Neal about the treasure and knowing how to get Neal's art to put inside. But we haven't seen him operate alone much. Would he be so dramatic? Why would he leave a note? Even though he seems most likely on paper, I am just not sure how this would work as plot next season. At this point, as brilliant as he is, Mozzie is too cute and not mysterious enough.

2) Alex. Okay, I can't see her giving Neal the treasure. But I can see her doing the rest and she was most likely to know the true location of the warehouse. Maybe she's wooing Neal with stolen art? Maybe she's re-giving up the obsession now she's found the U Boat as an incredibly unrealistic plot device? Hmmm.

3) A new character... Neal's father? I know it sounds like fanfic, but the writers have brought him up this season, and Adler made a father reference in their confrontation. Is this the writers sowing the seeds for a new over arching plot next season?

4) Kate. Hear me out! I was totally on the verge of accepting she was actually dead (come on. No one is dead on TV unless you've seen the body, and even then it's only 50:50) but the combination of mystery and doing nice things for Neal could fit her. After seeing her and Neal's story though, I'm unsure if she could pull it off.

Oh, I don't know. I also don't think there's anyway to glean the answer from what they've given us. Basically I am not ready to accept that Neal betrayed Peter. HE TOTALLY HASN'T SHUT UP. NEAL AND PETER SHARE PERSONAL STORIES ON PETER'S SOFA AND EL KNOWS NEAL COMES THROUGH WHEN IT MATTERS AND THIS IS JUST A MISUNDERSTANDING.

Next season I am not watching the finale until the next season starts. *pout*

I know some of you watch it. TALK TO ME.

I do not believe for a second Neal knew anythign about the explosion or the art. If Neal is ever up to something the show ALWAYS tells us - the show is, despite opening in s1 from Peter POV, more of a NEAL POV show I think, and if he was in on it, we'd know, and his FACE to Peter was so upset and defiant and genuine. and he was so confused and then awed at the storage place. NO FEAR.

PETER PLS JUST TRUST NEAL FOR ONCE, YOU SO OFTEN DON'T AND ARE PROVED WRONG! I get why he is leery of trusting Neal given who Neal is and was, and why this situation seemed like it did to him, but OH, BBS :(((((

KFJG OMG OMG OMG I am mostly just so thrilled at this point over how RIDICULOUSLY OT3 the dinner scene was, even with Sara there! (I do like Sara/Neal, but. OMG OT3!!!!!!)

Right?? It's too out of the blue! I am so glad you agree!!! So many reviews complain about not getting enough hints about what Neal was planning but HELLO HE SO WASN'T INVOLVED. WHAT ART LOVER WOULDN'T BE HAPPY TO KNOW ALL THAT ART HADN'T BEEN DESTROYED?? HIS EYES WERE SHINY WITH SINCERITY WHEN HE TOLD PETER HE DIDN'T DO IT!


Ugh, I know. I realise Neal's painting being in there is suspicious, but they have come so far this season, and got so comfortable, and Peter even talks to Neal about his relationship with El and their shorthand for 'I love you', PLEASE DON'T RUIN IT. D: D: D: I am hoping that like Peter and Diana's cliffhangers of Evil this will be swiftly resolved. Neal will roll gleefully in some jewels, preferably naked, and then call Peter and tell him where he is and Peter will believe him and semi apologise gruffly and then they will be together forever. I just hope Peter accusing Neal doesn't annoy him so much he procrastinates and implicates himself somehow. :( It occurs to me that maybe someone isn't giving Neal the art, but setting him up as the thief. : o

The OT3 has been strong this season, love interest or no love interest. Also Neal knowing and liking the little chickens proves he goes round there for dinner sometimes. FOR DATES. *_*

ugh the emotion in his voice when he shouts, "PROVE IT", my brian actually hurt a little bit.

DO NOT THINK NEAL WOULD HAVE BETRAYED PETER. however i'm thinking that if peter remains stubborn about it then neal will be tempted to do something with what's in the storage unit... GAH. damn this show, it holds so much of my heart &heart;

Neal was so hurt when he told Peter to prove it, I can't believe he could have been involved. Ugh, you are so right about Neal maybe using the storage unit because if he's doing the time, he may as well do the crime... but what if Peter then finds out, and takes it as further proof! This could escalate stressfully!
