The fugitive Neal business is over. He’s back in New York City and ready to return to work. Here’s the problem: Peter’s fed life is about to get decidedly worse.

Warning: Spoilers for tonight’s episode of White Collar

Synopsis for “Diminishing Returns”: Now back in New York, Peter’s actions on the island get him demoted and transferred out of the White Collar division. With Neal and his team’s help, he surreptitiously investigates a brilliant thief who has avoided the FBI’s capture for years.

Here’s a little bit of what to expect from tonight’s White Collar, which is a very case-heavy episode:

  • Peter gets his new assignment and it’s not a good one.
  • No worries, there are plenty of Neal/Peter scenes even though they are, technically, not on the same team right now.
  • More shirtless Neal.
  • Mozzie comes back into the picture.
  • Neal helps Peter work a cold case. Will it interfere with Peter’s new gig?
  • Neal opens up about his past.
  • Two guest stars you need to know about:
Brett Cullen

Brett Cullen. I won’t say who he plays, but he has to do with Peter’s new assignment. I love this guy. He’s a TV vet. Most recently, he’s been part of Finch’s past with the machine on CBS’ Person of Interest. One of my favorite projects of his was a UPN primetime soap set in the post-Civil War world. It was called Legacy. Cullen has guest-starred on a ton of shows including being Gibbs’ doctor in NCIS‘ two-part season 3 ender called “Hiatus”; he was Goodwin Stanhope on four episodes of Lost, was Tim and Billy’s estranged dad, Walt Riggins, on Friday Night Lights, and was Governor Ray Sullivan from West Virginia, a Republican nominee for the presidency on The West Wing. He also played Dan Fixx on two seasons of Falcon Crest and he can currently be seen on the big screen in The Dark Knight Rises. Go Brett.

Michael Weston. Weston has to do with Peter’s cold case. He is constantly making memorable guest star appearances. He was Spencer Watkowski on a Burn Notice called “Signals and Codes”; he played Private Brian Dancer in four episodes of Scrubs; on House MD, he was a private investigator House hired to keep track of Wilson in season 5 who then became Cuddy’s boyfriend in season 6; and he played the young version of Charlie (John Rubenstein’s character) on the season 4 episode of Supernatural awesomely known as “Criss Angel is a Douchebag.” He’s also guest-starred on ER, Six Feet Under and plays Olivia Benson’s half brother in four episodes of Law & Order: SVU.

And for those wanting to win big, check out Neal’s Stash — a national crowd-sourcing treasure hunt inviting White Collar fans to help track down an old score stolen from them by a rival con artist. Players compete for a chance to win weekly prizes and a grand-prize 2013 Ford Taurus.

White Collar airs tonight at 9/8c on USA Network.
