Warren Kole is coming in as Neal's (Matt Bomer) new handler in the next "White Collar" season 5 episode, and on Friday, Oct. 18, USA Network released a new sneak preview of episode 2, "Out of the Frying Pan."
In this next "White Collar" episode, Peter (Tim DeKay) assigns Neal a new handler to investigate an online back market, but Neal's loyalties will be tested when he finds out that the trail could lead to someone he knows: Mozzie (Willie Garson). As we've learned from Bomer and DeKay, both Neal and Peter are going to have the same feelings about Kole's character, Siegel. "Neal's initial reaction to Warren's character, Siegel, is one of trepidation," Bomer explained, "because he's very by-the-books, by the numbers, and he's an agent who's gotten to where he is because he plays by the rules, and that's very threatening to Neal."
The "Out of the Frying Pan" promo to the left shows Neal with Siegel, but how's that going to go? Is he following him? Is he just tryin to catch Neal in the act? Will Neal get caught doing something he shouldn't be doing? What is Siegel going to have to say about Neal after the case? And will the case lead them to Mozzie, leaving Neal to have to do something? Pus, check out the promotional photos USA Network has released from this episode in the slideshow.
"White Collar" season 5 airs Thursdays at 9 p.m. on USA Network. What do you think of the episode 2 "Out of the Frying Pan" photos and promo?
