Neal Caffrey (Matt Bomer) always has one woman or another in his life and for “White Collar” Season 5, it’s been Rebecca (Bridget Regan), the museum curator whose firing was Neal’s fault. Now Rebecca and Neal are involved and she seems to be interested in more than just being his girlfriend who is kept in the dark.

In this exclusive clip of fall finale “No Good Deed,” Rebecca tells Neal of the Mosconi Codex, “That book brought us together. Things are getting … exciting. I want to be part of it. I want to be part of this part of your life.”

She is referring to Neal and Mozzie’s heist of the stained glass window Mosconi made. They don’t yet know what answers it will yield about Chapter 13 of the Codex, but they know it’s important.

“You’re not a criminal, I don’t want to turn you into one,” says Neal. “I wanted you to know who I am and now I want to protect you from who I am.”

Do you think Rebecca will get her way? “No Good Deed” airs Thursday, Dec. 19 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on USA.
