In this episode of White Collar, called "Family Business," Neal confronts his father about the past, while he and Peter work together to catch a criminal in the present with a connection to that past.
Well, from what we’ve seen in this episode, it looks to me like the rest of this season could end up being very serialized. In the past, Neal has had a storyline that involved something that he was after, some truth that he needed (such as his missing girlfriend), but now that thing (or in this case, the person) he wants is right at his fingertips. It makes me wonder if he’ll be able to concentrate on anything until it gets resolved. I mean can you see Neal running off to help Peter with random cases while his father is still in hiding?
