I really, really, really liked this episode. In fact I may go as far as to say it is my favourite episode of the series so far. I love it when my characters play happy families with each other and obviously this German U-boat treasure thing has been coming between Neal and Peter so it’s nice to have an episode which doesn’t mention it at all.
Then there’s Peter undercover. SO FREAKING FUNNY. Peter doing the tango. And whilst Neal Caffrey is probably (undoubtedly) the hottest guy on television at the moment, there is something to be said about Peter Burke in this episode.
Loved all the three guys undercover actually. I always like it when they give Jones something to do. Ditto Diana – I love Marsha Thomason and even though I think she does a dodgy American accent and I keep hearing the British, she is awesome. I loved that she bid on Neal to help him save face and Neal’s picnic that he arranged for her in thanks <3.
And Elizabeth, how AWESOME is Elizabeth?? They are my Coach/Mrs Coach of crime dramas – so adorable and perfect for each other and the fact that I can be positive that the writers are never going to make them cheat on each another. I loved how she was a mixture of worried, jealous and then the competitiveness came out. Loved that she went undercover too – wait, every main character went undercover in this episode! Has this ever happened in a crime show before?! Loved the improvisation that had to happen when Peter had to bring the black widow back to “his apartment”. Mozzie the butler! Neal/Sara hiding in the closet! Peter the “artist”.
In short, I don’t think any other White Collar episode has made me laugh as much as this one.
