White Collar - Episode 4.16 - In The Wind (Season Finale) - Advanced Review

In this season finale, Neal and Peter are one heist away from retrieving the evidence box hidden inside the Empire State Building. Meanwhile, Senator Pratt enlisted a small army of FBI agents to find the box before Neal.

Let me say this straight from the get go, this is not the best finale of White Collar (its hard to top the season 2 finale) but that does not mean it is not an amazing episode. All of the characters we love all play a part in the big set piece building up to the Empire state building.

This episode is all about Neal and his many relationships. We see his relationships with his friends, the FBI, his family and mainly his appreciation and love for Peter. We finally see Neal showing his true feelings and appreciation for Peter. Neal really shows his true feelings in one scene and shows something Neal very rarely admits out loud, Peter is a father to him.

The Peter and Neal dynamic is the main relationship of the show and both actors really put in a great performance showing their close bond. We also get a great scene between Neal and Sara hinted at by the actors many months ago and is a great yet heartbreaking scene showing what could be and what was.

As usual the season finale is the big payoff to the season long arc, which I personally have not been the biggest fan of but it really does leave an amazing opportunity for next season. White Collar always has the best season cliffhangers and this seasons is no exception. If the writers stick to their guns and stretch this cliffhanger out over the first half of the next season it could truly be some interesting television.

Obviously I can not say to much without spoiling it but the final 15 minutes will have you on the edge of your seat. However because we are a spoiler site, below are 6 spoilers and quotes. 4 are true, 2 are lies. Discuss below what you think.

  • All of the previous finales are referenced in a fun way
  • One of the main cast will not survive the experience
  • One of the main cast will be arrested for murder
  • "In this life somebody always takes a fall, don't let it be you"
  • "*****, how could you do this to me, he was my father"
  • "I didn't want to shoot him"
Episode rating: 4 out of 5 (may not be the best finale but certainly has one of the best cliffhangers)

Remember White collar airs tonight Tuesday, March 5 @10/9c.

About The SpoilerTV Daily Newsreel

Every day 100's of items are submitted to us and we don't always have the time to make separate posts for the news and/or there is so much that it would quickly push all other items off the homepage.

So a result we've come up with the idea of the Newsreel, which will feature smaller shows and news items as they happen.

There will be a new Newsreel each day, and as news is added we will update the post and and push it back to the top of the site so that you can see that new items have been added. A tweet of the item will also be sent to our @SpoilerTV account.

New Items will be listed at the top of the article.

This will allow us to provide more news on more shows in a much more timely fashion
About Movie News Roundup

Rather that creating lots of new posts as new info is released and fragmenting the commentary, we thought it would be a good idea for the upcoming major movies to create a single post for each major movies that will collate all the info as it's posted.
