Neal’s torn on what to do; does he pass up this opportunity to get what he so desperately wants and is having trouble getting through legal channels or does he betray Peter’s trust and stab his friend in the back? Unfortunately they’re really is no choice because despite his answer of no, Abigail blackmailed him. Turns out she’s already stolen what he wants but in the process made sure to plant evidence (strands of his hair) at the scene so if he doesn’t come through for her, she’ll make sure he’s arrested. Stuck between a rock and a hard place Neal wishes he told Peter everything from the beginning but since he didn’t he has no choice; with Mozzie’s help they plan to pull off the heist.
While making it look like he’s working with Peter and the team when they stake out the museum again, confident Abigail’s going to take the painting, thanks to a “hook-up” with Diana who’s been posing as a museum employee and a potential love interest, Neal slips away when the team goes in and gets the job done.
