I read a lot of interesting theories here about what could be going on. At first I yelled at the screen, cursing at the writers, how could this be possible? But reading all your theories here got me excited again. This could still go many many ways. I agree it's a bit early for a new show to pull this kind of stunt, I hope it won't hurt them rather then helping the show grow.
And I really hope they think of an amasing storyline to pull this all together in a surprising way that will please the viewers. I really hope they pull this off, because I really like the actors.
I also really hope they are not going to destroy the Neal/Peter relationship. That is the best thing of this entire show. The first scene that pops into my mind is the scene when Neal has to tell Peter he took the painting to give back the girl. He really sat there like a little kid trying to fess up to something and the way Peter kept cutting him off when he tried to explain. It was hilarious... Though I agree that the story lines aren't that great, the acting is awesome... And Neal still keeps reminding me of Charlie Crews a little in 'Life'. They have the same kind of naïve but confident humor about them... I love it
