What I'm looking forward to the most, I think, is the potential for Peter to finally very publicly show some support for Neal. As much as Peter needs to hear that Neal chose him over the money, I think Neal needs to see Peter defend him.
Yes! I think it would go a long way to healing the rift and opening the door for Neal to be more open about his choices & dilemmas.
It's my current theory, based on but not limited to such pieces of evidence as that weird comment Kramer made in response to Neal saying he was the one who taught Peter everything he knows: "Well, I held a few things back," Kramer's general creepy invasiveness (dude is WAY more menacing than Keller could ever dream of being), the horrible, horrible influence on Peter's personality he had, and the fact that every time he was alone with Neal and Peter was out of earshot, Kramer took every open shot he had to demean Neal, make him doubt Peter's feelings towards him, and generally harass him. That wasn't poking a suspect to see what he gave away -- that was personal, and razor-edged. Kramer wasn't just observing, he was actively pulling at the threads of their relationship.
Totally agree!! I did find Kramer to be very menacing. I still don't know if he's evil, but I think he's more than just a mentor keeping an eye out for Peter. Maybe he's jealous, maybe he hates Neal, or maybe he's just a hard-ass jerk. Don't know, but I didn't like him, and I don't trust him.
