Review - White Collar Season 2 Episode 3 Copycat Caffrey

I was playing Starcraft 2 in my spare time and I couldn't pull myself away from the game, so I finally got around to White Collar and it was a great diversion from sitting in front of the computer. It's been a while since I was last fully involved in an episode of White Collar, but "Copycat Caffrey" held my attention more than any episode this season and most from the last.

A crime mirroring one of Neal's infamous past capers is committed, leading Neal and Peter to discover a crime ring college professor and his criminology students. There's something undeniably wonderful about USA's tactic to have their protagonists be the best of their respective fields. Neal cutting his way through arrogant students with style was awesome and the final hammer being dropped was equally good.

Neal's friend/flame/something, Alex, is in the episode and added another angle to Neal's machinations. In addition to taking down the criminals, he also gets her get out of a sticky situation relating to the music box. Given a ticket to leave the country, Alex hands Neal the final piece to the music box and tells him to let go of Kate--a reminder that fixations aren't permanent.

Score: 9.1/10
