White Collar concluded its 2012 run with the mother (or, father, rather) of all reveals as Neal Caffrey met his long-lost, and presumed dead, dad. Or did he?
Whether or not "Sam" is actual Neal's father has been the subject of much debate over the hiatus, but I'm pleased to inform you that the mid-season premiere directly, and immediately, addresses this paternal predicament.
That was just one of the tidbits I can reveal after having watched the mid-season premiere, titled Family Business (airing January 22 at 10 p.m. on USA). It features Peter and Neal searching for the truth about Neal's father's crime while Neal goes undercover to take down a member of the Irish Mob.
What the press release doesn't tell you is that bootlegging is involved, allowing Matt Bomer to put Tom Cruise in Cocktail to shame. The hour also sees Elizabeth Burke and Sachmo come to the rescue, in very different ways, oodles of revealing flashbacks and Matt Bomer wearing a bicep-flaunting tanktop.
As if that wasn't enough, ETonline also scored an exclusive first look at a promo for new season, which features fresh footage, hints of what's to come and Elizabeth wielding a gun! Check it out!
White Collar returns to USA on January 22 at 10 p.m.
