These hate crimes terrorize whole communities by making members of certain classes - whether racial minorities, lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer people, religious minorities or people who are perceived to be members of these groups - afraid to live in certain places and be free to move about in their community and across the country. Because perpetrators commit hate crimes to send a message and express anger or hatred for the victim, they often involve more violent acts than it takes to subdue or incapacitate the victim. Sometimes they involve mutilation, torture or holding the victim captive, such as in a car trunk. Historical events can cause a spike in hate crimes:
This season opens with Peter in prison after he got falsely accused of murder in the fourth season finale. Neal is willing to do anything to get him out of prison, especially when the person who really committed the murder goes underground. Of course, there is always the case of the week that Neal, Peter, and the gang at the FBI need to solve.
This season we get such cases as a black market ring that leads straight to Mozzie, Neal becomes a butler to prove an imposter is in their midst, Peter must work with his ex-girlfriend on a case, and Diana must go undercover to stop a rogue stock trader.
Neal even gets a new love interest in Rebecca Bridget Regaa woman he meets at a museum early in the season. Unfortuantely, Diana is absent for much of the season since Marsha Thomason gave birth in real life as well as on the show.
The rest of the cast is here full time however, and they are wonderful at bring their characters to life each week. The guest stars jump right in and match this fine level of acting. The overall story arc this season is very interesting and kept me off kilter with a couple of nice twists along the way.
Likewise, the cases of the week are wonderful as always, and I loved watching them work on solving these cases together. So what is my problem this season? Yet we still have that plot devise. Peter has been up for and turn down promotions several times to stay close to Neal. In fact, they play with him moving to DC for much of this season.
The cliffhanger at the end of this season cries out to be resolved. And it will give us a chance to say goodbye to these characters properly and see where the next chapter for all of them begins. I just hope I like how they choose to end it.
As always, the heart of the show is the relationship between Neal and Peter.
They do a better job of creating tension between them than in seasons past, but at times even that felt artificial. This season consisted of 13 episodes, and all of them are present in this four disc set. Not surprisingly, they are in their native wide screen and full surround as well. Extras include a gag reel and deleted scenes as well as an audio commentary on the season finale and a featurette about star Willie Garson taking on directing duties for an episode this season.
Knowing that allows me to enjoy the fun of season five of White Collar more.Wedding receptions these days are getting increasingly elaborate and expensive.
Many couples first book the reception hall and then go looking for a church or chapel (and accompanying officiant) to fit their reception date.
Of course with such affairs, you have to be selective in whom you invite. Cynthia Coffman Cynthia Coffman (born January 19, ) is an American woman convicted in the deaths of four women in California. She was convicted along with her boyfriend, James Marlow.
