Quick Thoughts: WHITE COLLAR, "Most Wanted"

I really, really wanted to enjoy "Most Wanted," but I felt that it was mediocre at best by episode's end.

I've gone on the record with my thoughts on the current arc about Neal and Mozzie on the run, how it's injected some life into the show, and how I don't want it to end. Even though I knew the end was near, I couldn't help but think how much I prefer this version of White Collar over the old version, and I was bummed when the plot took some very contrived turns just to get back to the status quo. Seriously, having Neal and Peter cut a deal with Collins just to have Neal back in NYC working white collar felt lazy. And the less I write about the "fake out" involving Maya, the better.

I still get a kick out of White Collar, and I do think that it still has some interesting stories to tell (Neal's father, his relationship with Parker, how Peter will get back to white collar), but it's going to be hard getting excited for episodes that we've already seen after spending some time in the sun.
