While watching Human Target (on a special night tonight) right before this episode of White Collar, I got to thinking how many old-fashioned, fun action shows there are on TV right now. This show, Burn Notice, Human Target. They're throwbacks to the 60s or 70s or 80s, the lone hero (or the hero with a partner) helping either an innocent civilian or the government take down the bad guys, using cleverness, gadgets, disguises and fighting skills.
That's not to say they're just fluffy, throwaway entertainments ... well, maybe to a certain extent they are. But Burn Notice and White Collar have a lot more going on than that, while at the same time not resorting to brooding, troubled heroes like a lot of characters on many other modern shows.
I think this episode started to raise some of the same questions that fans have: how did Peter know how to contact Kate, and can Peter be trusted 100%? I don't think the show is trying to say that the story Peter is telling is in any way false. I think what Peter explained last week is the real story. But they've left the window open just a touch for there to be some question as to what exactly is going on (is Kate working with Fowler or being kept by him, is someone else at the FBI involved, etc).
