‘White Collar’ Episode Guide (Dec. 18): Neal Carries Out Risky Heist

“Au Revoir” Series Finale (12/18/14) – In order to help Neal (Matt Bomer) carry out a risky heist, Peter (Tim DeKay) must involve himself in a dangerous con against the Pink Panthers, putting El (Tiffani Thiessen) at unease with their new baby on the way.

Meanwhile, Neal designs a new plan that will serve the interest of the Pink Panthers – and himself.

Guest starring in this episode are Gavin Lee, Ross McCalll and Lucas Salvagno.

USA’s original hit original drama series “White Collar” returns for its sixth and final season. From Fox Television Studios and creator Jeff Eastin (“Graceland”), “White Collar” returns with Emmy nominee Matt Bomer and Tim DeKay, as well as Tiffani Thiessen, Willie Garson, Sharif Atkins and Marsha Thomason.

The series focuses on the unlikely partnership between the very intelligent and charming con-artist Neal Caffrey (Bomer) and the hard-working and earnest FBI agent Peter Burke (DeKay). In exchange for his freedom, and on the condition that he wear an ankle bracelet at all times, Caffrey provides his expertise in thievery to help Burke and agents Clinton Jones (Atkins) and Diana Berrigan (Thomason) catch other elusive white collar criminals.

The thrilling final season picks up on last season’s cliffhanger, when Caffrey has disappeared, sans ankle bracelet. Personal transitions and returning enemies complicate things when Caffrey and Agent Burke are pitted against the most sought-after network of criminals in the world, the Pink Panthers. With the help of Mozzie (Garson) and FBI agents, Barrigan and Jones, they will attempt to infiltrate and bring down the infamous criminal ring. Guest stars for the final bow include Ross McCall, Gavin Lee, Bridget Regan, Toby Leonard Moore, Paloma Guzman, Michael Potts, Isaach de Bankole and Diahann Carroll.

A critical darling since it debuted, the Los Angeles Times praised the series, saying it was “Sparkling, snappy, bursting with energy and good clean heist fun… ” while USA Today pointed out “everything about the show is a fun, shiny fantasy.” Boston Globe noted it was”… one of the best new shows of the season,” and the New York Post lauded “… it’s a whole lotta fun.” Over five seasons, “White Collar” has been honored with four consecutive years of People’s Choice Award nominations (2011-2014) and a NAACP Image Award nomination for Diahann Carroll, among other accolades.
