WHITE COLLAR “Where There’s A Will” Review

WHITE COLLAR (USA) "Where There's A Will"

WHITE COLLAR “Where There’s A Will” Season 3 Episode 2 – As I watched this episode I couldn’t help but to feel like things were just a little off. Not with the show, I’m still loving it, but with Peter and Neal. I mean how can there not be something off between them when they are both basically lying through their teeth at each other? Neal may have started it by keeping his big secret from Peter about the art, but Peter seems to have no trouble keeping up his end of the secret keeping game.

So while tonight we saw Peter and Neal working together just as they always do, with the witty banter and everything else, I keep waiting for the other shoe to drop. Then again, I guess it kind of did, considering that Neal now knows that Peter has part of the manifest.

The other thing I keep waiting for is Neal come to his senses and realize that he doesn’t want to leave the life he’s made for himself. I just can’t seem to wrap my head around the fact that he’s really, truly thinking of making off with this fortune and starting a new life. Is the one that he has now so bad that he’d want to leave it? Though Neal sure did seem to be dragging his feet a little bit, at least that’s what it felt like when he told Mozzie he still hadn’t picked out a new name yet.

Looks like we’re going to continue to see this push and pull for a while as Peter and Neal both keep secrets from each other, while pretty much knowing exactly what the other is up to. Now that Neal knows about the manifest, I wonder what he’s going to do next.

My favorite bits……

Peter plus a child = adorable

“I gave it to him. It’s so I don’t lose him.” – LOL.

Neal and Peter coming up with what the anagram meant at the exact same time.

Whoa! The DVD I watched the premiere on did not have the new opening credits. Interesting. Haven’t decided if I like it yet or not, I kinda miss the old ones.

Finding out Peter loves puzzles. Yep, that seems like the type of thing he would do in his spare time.

Peter’s immense reluctance to leave Neal to solve the puzzle without him. Aw, poor guy.

“Everything points to something.”
“Did you steal that from my brain?”
“No.”

Peter trying to hide his enthusiasm about the treasure hunt from Elizabeth and failing miserably.

Elizabeth giving Peter permission to play with Neal.

Mozzie referring to the “government imposed” spring of Daylight Saving Time. Yet another reason why I love him, because I too hate DSL.

“Is that a short joke?”
“It is now.”

Okay wow. Peter and Neal in the planetarium was very cool.

Totally knowing that as soon as the very nice guy said that the book could not be tampered with in any way; Neal was definitely going to break into that box.

Yay! Satchmo gets to be part of a case! Well, everyone else has had a chance. Why not him?

Mozzie’s not-so-subtle peek at the keypad.

“Okay, seriously?”
“What, you wanna come down here and give it a go, Bob Villa? Bring it.”

Mozzie calling Satchmo “bad dog” after the book disintegrated.

“Now, it’s light reading.”
“Too soon.” (Oh, I don’t know about that. It made *me* giggle.)

As soon as I saw his name as one of the guest stars, I knew that William Sadler was going to be the bad guy.

“Crime isn’t the hard part. The hard part is getting away with it.” – Boy, if anyone knows that, it’s Neal.

Neal showing Greg the video of Peter picking up Savannah and then waving to her daddy at the camera. All together now…..AWWWWW.

The look Peter and Neal shared when Peter asked if Neal wasn’t “just a little curious” about what was in the wall.

Both of them trying to claim that it was great that things were back to “normal”. – Yeah, right.

Neal figuring out that Peter has the manifest. Uh oh.
