With a few months left on his four-year sentence, criminal mastermind Neal Caffrey escapes from maximum security prison to save his relationship with his girlfriend. FBI Agent Peter Burke, the man who had chased him for years and had finally caught him, is called in to track him down. He easily finds Neal at his girlfriend's apartment, deflated and defeated. She has completely disappeared. Back in prison and with four years added to his sentence, Neal decides to make a deal with Agent Burke to help him in finding other master criminals. The deal is made and Neal is released, with a GPS ankle monitor, of course, into the custody of Agent Burke. The uneasy partnership proves a success and Neal becomes an official FBI consultant, living large, to Agent Burke's astonishment and frustration, in a wealthy widow's guest-room. Neal, also, secretly brings in an old friend to help him find his girlfriend. Written by

In the opening scene when Neal Caffrey is snipping off his facial hair in a toilet stall, the adhesive-strip base of the stick-on beard is clearly visible. It happens twice - when there is a shot from the side of his upper lip, mouth, cheek and chin (immediately before the close-up of his eye) and when there is a shot from the front of his lips and chin (immediately after the shot of snipped-off hair falling on the water). Both happen within the first twenty seconds, and only seven seconds apart. In the second instance, the edge of the adhesive strip even appears to be partly peeled off. See more
We're not gonna catch Caffrey using road blocks and wanted posters.
