Speaking of, Tiffani Amber Thiessen shines this sweet as Elizabeth Burke. The telephone bit is delightful, proving how critical her character is. Let's just say a slight hitch comes in a takedown which Elizabeth has to step in and help. Even Sara (Hilarie Burton) is impressed.
Yes, the redhead returns this week. The chemistry between Burton and Bomer works, but whether they hook up is not yet out there.
The biggest surprise of all has to do with the final scenes of the episode. While revealing all would be tacky, I will say a flashback episode will arrive next week which should help clear things up. Now, there is something of a disconnect between what DeKay is referring to and what Bomer mentions in the final line. Yes, the music box, assumed to be from Catherine the Great, contains a type of code. No shocker. Using Kate to get to Neal also makes sense. But if Kate died due to her involvement with obtaining said box, I am not sure the same person would have enough clout to get Fowler involved.
Is this man FBI? I doubt it. All anybody FBI connected needed to do was make Neal's release from prison conditional upon giving up the location of the music box. Kate's assistance would not be needed. This leaves out a tie to both James Rebhorn, aka Hughes, and the character Joe Morton guest starred as a while back ("Prisoner's Dilemma"). Arresting Larson is only another piece of the puzzle. Watch for this storyline to be played out up to and including the finale.
