When USA executives heard that one of America's most wanted con men, Neal Caffrey, was going to flee the country on the Season 3 finale of White Collar, they had one small request.
"They really liked the idea. They just said, 'Promise us you're not destroying the series,'" creator and executive producer Jeff Eastin tells TVGuide.com.
At first glance, it looks like Eastin didn't play by the rules. In the episode's final moments, con-man-turned-indentured-FBI-employee Neal (Matt Bomer) cut his police anklet and fled the country with just a month left on his sentence.
