After the yawn of a premiere episode, we finally got into the good stuff this week. The amount of drama we got in one episode is something I would expect CW writers to drag out through a whole season.
Catherine continues to track down Vincent, gets kidnapped, seduces him, gets tied to a chair and left by him, chases him, plans another date and then breaks up. Holy smokes!
Last week we witnessed Vincent finishing off the head of Muirfield, which he was ordered to do by Cat’s father. Now that Catherine thinks Muirfield is gone, she thinks they are both safe. Wrongo, Catherine. One threat to your relationship may be gone, but don’t think a few others won’t rise up.
After Catherine scares Vincent away from their faux first date, she tracks where he’s going thanks to the help Gabe, Tess and JT. They find that Vincent is headed to Riker’s island and the prison. Of course Catherine can’t help herself and follows. She finds Vincent questioning a bloody Carlos Hernandez, who is an incarcerated drug dealer. So what does Vincent do? Oh you know, just kidnap her and take her on a boat.
I am loving this super-soldier Vincent that we’re shown. Catherine may not appreciate the SS Vincent, but we sure do! Catherine seduces Vincent to get the blindfold and her wrists untied, but it doesn’t prove to induce his memory. Afterwards, Vincent ties her back up and leaves her for Gabe to find. Harsh!
But again, they go off to chase Vincent. Will Catherine never learn? Gabe informs Cat that Vincent has been in communication with a woman named Gina Carolla, who is connected to one of Carlos Hernandez’s drug rivals. They both make another dumb assumption that Vincent is working for the drug dealer and has a mission to kill her.
Vincent lures the girl into a VIP room, and sure enough Catherine shows up. Vincent has to let Catherine in on his mission– to protect, not kill Gina. Unfortunately for Gina, Hernandez has bought another super-solider to take care of his dirty work.
Afterward, a second date between the two proves to cause even more destruction when Vincent calls Catherine a one-night stand after she asked unwanted questions. After being shoved to the ground, literally, Catherine has had enough and is ready to cage Vincent.
What will happen to our favorite couple? Will Catherine’s father emerge from the shadows? Or will Catherine ever get over her obsession with this beast?
Find out next week Monday 8/7 C on the CW!
Beauty and the Beast: “About Last Night” Preview
Beauty and the Beast: Catch Me If You Can (02 x 14)
This episode was centered all around the Gabe-Catherine-Vincent love triangle. I’m pretty sick of Catherine and her love life to say the least. The fact that a whole episode was spent on her terrible decisions was quite annoying, especially when we all know the outcome.
Catherine now holds all the cards with our desperate beast. Vincent wants Catherine back in his life and she knows it. She may seem all sweet and innocent, but she is totally playing both Gabe and Vincent like a bad poker game.
Vincent refuses to give up. You’ve got to admire the guy for it. He knows he’s a better choice for Catherine and he knows she doesn’t want the perfect relationship that Gabe is offering her.
Gabe…oh boy. I don’t even know where to start. Jealousy is not becoming on you, buddy. Quit being the needy significant other. We already saw where that got Tori — dead. He’s threatened by Vincent and he does not like that Cat’s old flame is still a major part of her life. His threatening Vincent was laughable. To tell Vincent that he’s a better option for Catherine, is not going to make him back off, it’s only going to make him try to be a better person to prove Gabe wrong. Gabe is fighting a losing battle.
And the last scene of the episode confirms all of our ideas. Catherine and Vincent cannot stay away from each other. I mean, Gabe, do you really think she “accidentally” fell into bed with him? No. She’s in love with him and though she may regret hurting Gabe, she knows what she wants in the long run. She wants Vincent. But is that what she really wants? With one episode left, where do you think the love story will end? With Gabe or Vincent? Tune in Monday at 9/8C on the CW!
