Elizabeth Burke: [flipping the card over] You must've been quite the conversationalist.

This episode is not one of their best
3 February 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I like this series mostly because of how Neal and Peter work together. This episode, however, lacks credibility. I was skeptical before even watching it because all the previews showed Neal being injected with something. You can't just knock Neal out every episode (remember he was unconscious 2 weeks ago as well). He's supposed to be a white collar felon, a really good one, and this just makes him look out of his element and weak.

Plus, I didn't buy the set up for this week's plot. It doesn't seem very realistic. It could have been a real case for all I know it just was not sold well.

In addition to that, the running story of the relationship between Peter and Neal has worked well and been consistent until now. This episode doesn't fit. It also didn't move along the bigger story with Kate, although there's no rule that they have to. I was disappointed that we didn't get more details about their hunt for the music box.
