Mozzie admits that he deliberately sold a Degas from the treasure to force Neal to chose whether to start their new life together or not. Peter has engaged art-expert FBI, suspicious-natured agent Kramer to assess Caffrey, whom they suspect to have hidden the treasure. Neal gets wind of their trap and makes Mozzie track the Degas, so he can replace it with a forgery in tycoon collector Elliott Richmond's penthouse. Matthew Keller is back and wants the treasure at any cost. Written by KGF Vissers

Summer ends with a BANG!!!!
10 August 2011 | by g-bhavapriyanSee all my reviews

What an end. This episode has got to be the best i have seen on white collar for sometime now. All the small build ups we have seen in the previous episodes add up all well and we get this forty something minutes of a not leaving your couch for anything episode. Its got all the elements required to get hooked onto it for every second and makes it worth seeing it twice in a row. Not kidding. Its got a heist, stunts(oh yeah),friendship/emotional/trust thing going on and an ending which will make you wait for the next episode to come out very very eagerly. Neal Caffrey is back at his peak in this one. Peter still has issues to deal with. And we see Mozzie as a serious guy again. oh and its got Interesting new characters and recurring characters of interest. Its got the usual light moments which goes along well with the amazing plot. This is white collar at its best.
