When she overhears a neighbor’s (Joe Manganiello) conversation over Peter’s (Tim DeKay) police scanner Elizabeth (Tiffani Thiessen) begins to suspect he might be planning the burglary of a posh hotel. When she’s unable to convince Peter or Neal (Matt Bomer) about what she overhead she enlists the one person she knows likely to buy into a possible paranoid conspiracy – Mozzie (Willie Garson).
When Elizabeth gets trapped in the suspect’s home while doing some snooping under the pretense of a dinner party for the new neighbors it’s up to Neal to come to the rescue. Despite being lied to and dragged into a case against his will Peter has to admit something is fishy with the Burkes’ new neighbors.
Despite piecing together the robbers’ plans Peter and Neal are too late to stop them from fleeing a crime scene with $7.5 million. With no evidence the FBI has nothing to tie the Burkes’ neighbors to the crime. Luckily, and to Peter’s distress, Mozzie and Elizabeth are on the case.
“Neighborhood Watch” is a fun episode that gives Thiessen more to do than usual. The humorous scenes with Elizabeth and Mozzie are my favorite from this week; they make a pretty good team.
