Back to Work Tuesday: Jones Suits Up

Sharif Atkins as Clinton Jones
Since we celebrated Veterans Day over the long weekend, we figured we'd highlight White Collar's veteran character when we finally went back to work: Clinton Jones. No naval uniform today: he's showcasing his 'persecuted employee' look!

Rabid Squee – Vested Interest

Clinton "Urkel" Jones gets his geek on.
Woe!

Are we at the mid-season hiatus ALREADY!? But I just got used to the boys coming to my house every Tuesday! Grumble, grumble.

Well, I suppose I’ve got one last Squee in me despite sinking into the DEPTHS of DESPAIR (channeling Anne Shirley there for ya.)

On to the Squee!

Picture of the Day: Percy!

Mozzie's pet rat Percy.

I'm a fan of pet rats! I've had a number of them, each with their own distinct personality, but all have been inquisitive and affectionate. One, who had an exceptional amount of chutzpah, even crowned herself the alpha pet of the household. All the other pets, including the boxer dog, obediently fell in line. (It's all about attitude, apparently.)

So I was thrilled to find out that Mozzie has a pet rat! Not so thrilled to find out that he allowed Neal to endanger Percy--what would have happened if Jones had caught him?--but, in fairness, both Percy and Neal seemed to have the situation well in hand.

First Thoughts on Vested Interest: Trust and Faith

Peter (Tim DeKay) and Neal (Matt Bomer) in Vested Interest

Spoilers Ahead!
Over two years ago I posted about the no-drama way Peter and Neal reconcile and forgive each other. That is still my favorite thing about this show.

Neal's rage has subsided into an icy coolness at the beginning of Vested Interest. He's done with Peter, except in a professional capacity. And with some reason: Peter went behind his back and investigated Sam. It turns out he was right to do so--but we'll get back to that. Right now, we're in the office watching the aftermath of a painful break-up, with one ex (Peter) talking too much, hoping to elicit a favorable response, and the other (Neal) stonewalling him.

Ouch.

Jeff Eastin Talks About Peter and Neal--and their Trust Issues

Matt Bomer and Jeff Eastin
Jeff Eastin gives a revealing interview about Peter and Neal's relationship here. It will come as no surprise that he wants to keep playing with the tension between the two--but no need to fear for the bromance.

(It sounds like tonight's episode focuses on one aspect of Peter and Neal's multi-faceted relationship. You know how, depending on your glasses, they seem like brothers, or best friends, or father and son, or an old married couple? If you haven't already guessed, read the interview to see which aspect will be highlighted in Vested Interest.)

Jeff also talks about his new series Graceland, how he came up with the idea for it, how it differs in tone from White Collar, and the challenges of working on two shows at once. I suspect he'll have crazy hard work in front of him if both series are hits--I hope it's not wrong to wish that on him!
