Strongly dislike the verbal abuse Neal keeps getting from Peter
One of the most frustrating episodes I've watched. I love Peter and Neal's bromance, but this was awful to see unfold. Seems like Neal can't go two steps without Peter suspicious of criminal activity, and he's always alluding to Neal's not being able to break his criminal habits that he'd had before prison, despite his telling Neal (in the earlier episodes with Caffrey Sr.) that he can lead a diff life than his dad chose. And it's frustrating to see Peter contradict himself by constantly insinuating things to Neal and getting mad at him and then saying "but what do you expect from a convicted felon". It's hurtful, it's uncalled for, and it's extremely unprofessional. He understands that Neal did this to help a friend (you, actually, Peter!) - but he can't be content with that, he has to push it by telling Neal that Neal is wrong about what Neal's intentions were and that Neal was actually doing it bc Neal likes stealing things and Neal's a criminal. Which just seems like a low blow to give your friend who has worked with you, protected you, bent over backwards for you all within a two mile radius and no pay. Oh, and constant reminders of his low rank in life. I used to really love Peter and the way he worked with Neal but the more and more I watch the more I dislike the whole relationship.
I would have given it six or seven stars but the whole plan was impressive and the acting was well done so I reluctantly bumped it. Hope people can forgive me for being so generous about such a crappy episode.
