In this episode of White Collar, called “Empire City” (directed by Tim DeKay), Peter and Neal continue to hunt for clues about the key and along the way stumble across another case involving cabs and jazz.
This was DeKay’s second time sitting in the director’s chair and I’m really starting to enjoy his style. When he directs an episode, I feel like we get the best of both worlds: a great director and someone who knows the show incredibly well. For instance, his use of music was great. I never would’ve thought of myself as a jazz fan, but I kept finding myself tapping my toes to the music, especially when June was singing. The episode had all the great elements of White Collar, but with those added touches that were undeniably DeKay’s.
