There is no moment of respite for Neal Caffrey (Matt Bomer) this season. In the previous episode of "White Collar," Neal was able to destroy the evidence against Curtis Hagen (Mark Shepphard). The destruction of the evidence, however, has not set him free from the grasp of 'The Dutchman'. It looks like Neal is going down the con-hole, like his old days.
"Peter (Tim DeKay) is getting used to his new assignments and Neal has to make a museum heist work," according to the official one-line synopsis released by USA Network.
In the preview promo, the new handler Agent Siegel (Warren Cole) can be seen telling Neal that either Neal will make his career or ruin it. A museum heist right under his watch is for sure going to ruin the young handler's career. The promo calls the museum heist Neal's "most daring heist." It is the stealing of a book, which C.H. says is "no ordinary book." Neal gets locked inside while trying to steal the book. We know that he will get out of the museum before getting caught, but Peter's voice and his grim look in the promo video suggests that Neal has landed in real trouble.
At some point, Peter will find out about Neal's deal with C.H. that resulted in his freedom before indictment. Tim had said to The Hollywood Reporter: "No matter what Neal does, Peter will eventually find out about it. So if Neal makes a deal with the devil to get Peter out of jail, eventually Peter will find out about that deal."
There has always been an under-current of trust issues between Peter and Neal. In Season 4 of "White Collar," it looked like Peter was taking a leap of faith but this season, it is again back to square one.
"The trust issues for Neal and Peter are even bigger this year, and what eventually happens is that these two need to have a face to face and have a cathartic scene where they stand with each other," Tim said to The Hollywood Reporter.
The actor also said that Neal and Peter are likely to talk about how they feel about each other and the relationship that they share.
