As if “White Collar” was not an interesting enough show as it is, meeting Neal Caffrey’s father at the moment has added a completely new dimension; now, we have a character who is having to think of something beyond just himself, and he is going to spend much of the next several episodes trying to help clear his father’s name.
With this in mind, we are going to be seeing a different sort of storyline play out on the show in the months ahead, one in which Matt Bomer’s character is going to be trying to get his family back together after having to send his dad into hiding last week. The second episode of 2013 airing on Tuesday night is entitled “Brass Tacks,” and it features an appearance from the former “Lost” Man in Black otherwise known as Titus Welliver as a shady Senator who has quite a past with the Caffrey family.
In addition to the promo / clip from the episode below, be sure to also check out the official synopsis.
“Peter (Tim DeKay) and Neal (Matt Bomer) begin their investigation into Senator Pratt’s involvement with a ring of corrupt cops who framed Neal’s father and tore his family apart. They soon find a connection between the Senator and a crooked real estate developer, who is running a kickback scheme.”
At some point over the next few weeks, we are also going to have an opportunity to see Hilarie Burton as Sara, and this will complicate Neal’s life even further. The man has been in some difficult situations in the past, but having his heart get in the way now may force him into some of his most complicated situations yet.
