  • Neal goes ahead with his plan to steal the Music Box and not tell Peter. Fowler promises him his freedom and Kate. Neal, Alex, and Mozzie go after the box and Peter gets suspended when Fowler goes after his wife. There is a big surprise in the end.moreless

    Entertaining yet a little frustrating as it goes against everything the show has really been about to this moment. Yes, Neal has been trying to get Kate back. We know things Neal doesn't, but in the end whatever we knew was not reality based on the episodes ending. Perception is not reality in this case!

    Peter does what Peter does and he doesn't stand by and not do nothing. I still wonder when Neal will finally really trust Peter after all this time. I also get the feeling we are going to see a lot more of Alex in the future after the way things went or she was involved somehow in some way. She wants back into Neal's life and maybe this was the doorway for her to walk through?

    Fowler plays dirty and it was nice in the end to see him take what looks like a fall. I do think that all of that part of the episode went a little too easy and it felt strange as well. I think we'll be seeing more of Fowler in the future as well though.

    I think people are a little upset with the fact that this really was a major cliffhanger. What happened? Nobody really knows. The gig didn't go as planned and that was a little unnerving. I think in a lot of ways the show had an uneasy feel to it in general. Still it was enjoyable and it makes me want to see what happens this summer in the second season. So I give it a credible score for that. Thanks for reading...moreless

  • QUOTES (10)

    • Neal: (to Alex) I got a question. I know why I'm naked. Why are you?

    • Mozzie: A consulate? Oh, great, an international incident. Look, I don't want to end my days in some underground prison, adopting cockroaches as pets.
      Neal: We're not talking about North Korea. It's the Italians, Moz.
      Mozzie: They do prison just fine. Ask Galileo.

    • Mozzie: Neal, happily ever after isn't for guys like us.
      Neal: It is this time. It is.

    • Peter: (to Mozzie, Alex and Neal) Oh, look at this. All the usual suspects in one place. Makes my job much easier.

    • Mozzie: We feel free when we escape, even if it be but from the frying pan into the fire.

    • Neal: Excuse me! Scusi! Pardon! I'd like to make a toast to our gracious hosts. And all of you, because this is a very special night. Well, it's special to me, anyway. You probably have no idea who I am, so I'm going to tell you. I'm an internationally renowned art thief. And tonight, I'm here to rob you. Cheers!

    • Peter: There's an APB out for a man of interest in a slick suit. Apparently, he rappelled down the wall of a consulate.
      Neal: It'll be fine. They're not gonna prosecute for the theft of an item they weren't supposed to have in the first place.
      Peter: An item you don't seem to have.
      Neal: Well, let's just say Alex had other plans.

    • Mozzie: Remember that old Chinese curse?
      Neal: May you live in interesting times.
      Mozzie: These certainly are interesting times. Remember the second half of that curse?
      Neal: May you find what you're looking for.

    • Neal: You and Peter... How'd you know?
      Elizabeth: Well, I think there's a difference between loving the idea of someone and actually loving who they really are.

    • Peter: You said goodbye to everyone but me. Why?
      Neal: I don't know.
      Peter: Yeah, you do. Tell me.
      Neal: I don't know, Peter.
      Peter: Why?
      Neal: You know why.
      Peter: Tell me.
      Neal: 'Cause you're the only one who could change my mind.
