White Collar "Forging Bonds" Nitpicks

Season 2, Episode 11 Air Date: January 25, 2011

When you watch a program over and over, you start to notice minor continuity issues, plot oversights and other goofs. This page is not intended to be a criticism aimed toward the show or anyone who works on White Collar. They produce a great show and should be proud of their work. That's why I titled it "Nitpicks" because to nitpick means "to be overly critical or criticize minor details." If it bothers you, please don't read them. This page is intended to be for people who love watching something and going "I never noticed that..."

Raphael's St. George and the Dragon

Nice Fake? When Neal and Kate first meet, they are standing in front of Raphael's St. George and the Dragon. They act like it's the real picture, but there is no way it could be. The real painting is only 8.5 in. x 11 in. (or roughly the size of a piece of paper). The painting they are standing in front of is much larger than that.

Mozzie's hair Mozzie's hair2

Visiting Hair: When Mozzie first arrives at Neal's apartment, he is wearing different hair then he had on at the park. But he has on the same clothes...

Day to Night: When Neal and Mozzie are on the phone (right before Kate shows up) Mozzie is walking outside at night. There is clearly daylight coming in the windows in Neal's apartment. Granted, he has a lamp on, but when he opens the door to let Kate in you can see sunlight streaming in from the windows right behind him.

Chasing Dreams: Why would Peter follow Neal for several years rather than go after Adler? Isn't he a much bigger fish to fry?

Long Probation: In the Pilot, Peter tells Neal that Diana is his probationary agent. Diana then finishes her probationary period (which according to the FBI is two years) and takes a job in D.C. This means she began working with Peter in 2007 (when Neal was in prison). Yet, in this episode she is shown working for the FBI as early as 2003 or 2004 and helped look for Neal.
