GUUYYYYYSSSS!!!!! Lets take a moment to talk about this ok? Neil comes off as confident, cool, collected, having it all together, but he DOESN'T. In 2x09 we see Neil come as undone as we've ever seen him up to that point because of Kate's death. He freaking PULLS A GUN on Garret Fowler, and Neil HATES guns. I forget which episode, but he says he paints to relieve stress and has a whole storage room worth of art.(1/2)
The "White Collar" Season 4 midseason finale might be the bromanciest episode yet, since Neal and Peter are on the outs but must keep working together. That relationship dynamic continues to be nuanced and lovely.
