On Tuesday night, “White Collar” is going to return on USA with all-new episodes, and it’s going to feature Neal Caffrey in a position he hasn’t quite been in yet — on the run overseas. At first, the decision by he and Mozzie to bolt seemed like the smartest move; but was it the best move? Eventually, we have a feeling that this action is going to take them straight back to New York City.
So what does Willie Garson have to say about this shift in location? As a part of a conference call with reporters on Monday, the actor explained that while Mozzie is going to initially be excited by the prospect of being overseas, it’s not exactly going to turn out as he had hoped:
“I think Mozzie sees it as the life that he’s always dreamed he had. It’s an ending [for what he feels is the journey with Neal], and a rather comfortable ending. [But] we’re going to find out … it’s almost like the old saying ‘be careful what you wish for.”
As for what else we are not going to see this season, don’t expect Mozzie to be finding love on the show anytime soon — even though Garson is certainly open to the idea:
“I wish … I thought [the episodes involving his personal life] were really fun episodes, and I think Mozzie in a relationship is a lovely thing. I haven’t seen Mozzie getting any action [in the upcoming scripts].”
Just in case you haven’t caught a promo yet for Tuesday night’s premiere, you can check it out below. We’re going to have plenty more coverage of the show moving forward, but from a critical perspective, we will say right away that “White Collar” is doing a truly admirable thing here in allowing their show to change things up for the start of the new season. It’s going along with USA’s new mantra to produce bolder, more serialized content, and it’s paying off for us viewers in spades. As we suggested in a recent piece, let’s hope that it brings some Emmy love with it.
