In the Season 3 premiere ofÂ WHITE COLLARÂ (Monday, Oct. 8Â atÂ 10 p.m. ET), Peter (Tim DeKay) isnâ€™t convinced that the priceless art collection plundered by the Nazis burned in Adlerâ€™s (Andrew McCarthy, LIPSTICK JUNGLE) warehouse fire; worse, he thinks Neal (Matt Bomer) stole it or knows who did.

Of course Peterâ€™s right: Neal does know who stole the collection, and he knows that Peter has some incontrovertible evidence that links him to the theft. He just has to find it.
