Summary: The dark side of Peter's desire.
Peter sits in the dark, supposedly watching the game and catching up on work, but in reality staring at a blinking dot on the map. Neal is out there doing who knows what…and it’s not with him.
This is a first for Peter. He wants to possess every part of Neal’s past, present and future. Sometimes he leaves marks with his teeth; desperately trying to alleviate the fear that Neal’s affections are just another con.
The joke around the water cooler was Peter’s single-minded obsession with catching Neal Caffrey. Back then it was funny.
Now it’s definitely not.
