Decisions. Even the best ones do not always leave one with a certainty that what the final outcome becomes makes the most sense. For FBI Agent Peter Burke (Tim DeKay), joining the Bureau offers him a chance to meet his wife Elizabeth (Tiffani Thiessen), while investigating an art gallery theft. It later gives him a chance to meet Neal Caffrey (Matt Bomer), con man extraordinaire. Technically, re-meet as Neal escapes and Peter has enough common sense to find him before anyone else does ("Pilot").
Between the two of them, a decision is made about the music box - the one that got Kate Moreau, Neal's longtime love, killed in a plane explosion ("Out of the Box"). More about this development later.
The current case has Peter and his crew dealing with a homicide. Under ordinary circumstances, the crime would be someone else's issue. Underlying circumstances suggest otherwise, since the victim is potentially involved in corporate espionage. Since Peter has the accounting degree, he goes in as the audit guy. Neal is later brought in as the marketing guru.
Griffin Dunne is Wesley Kent, whose company is under suspicion. DeKay and Dunne have some nice scenes together as Peter is offered a job with more perks than anyone can imagine. The coffee alone is tempting enough, since European Roast outdoes Bureau brew by a long shot. Whoever shot the scenes in Kent's apartment must have a high appreciation for sea sickness. However, the point is made of a potentially serious situation.
Marsha Thomason, aka Diana, and Willie Garson, aka Mozzie, have nice chemistry as they clash over whether to work together or not. Each actor can bicker without flinching, which is delightful to watch. Bomer has to referee the two, and his facial expressions provide a commentary all their own.
