I’m starting to think getting into a relationship with a supernatural beast isn’t a good idea.
Beauty and the Beast returned for its second season earlier tonight, and things aren’t going well for our young heroine Catherine (Kristin Kreuk). The premiere picked up three months after the finale, and, as one might have expected, they are all still dealing with some serious fallout.
First things first: Gabe is alive! I for sure thought he had bit the dust when he was shot multiple times, but thanks to some quick acting by Catherine, Gabe is alive – and no longer a beast. Talk about an upgrade. He’s back working at the prescient along with an increasingly-annoyed Tess. They’re both wondering when Catherine is going to give up on looking for the still-missing Vincent (Jay Ryan). Clearly, they don’t know what show they are on: She’d rather die than call it quits with her beloved!
Beast’s mythology got deeper this hour, eschewing the case-of-the-week in favor of some pretty enticing backstory. Namely, Catherine’s real father (whom viewers met in the last minutes of the finale) works for the government and he actually hired Mierfield (the famed Big Bad of the series that we actually met for the first time tonight) to run those infamous experiments on Vincent and others all those years ago. Catherine still doesn’t know he’s her father, but the two have a chilling meet and greet at a party. Her sister does know the truth about Catherine’s paternity, so it’s clear that this will all be unraveling sometime in the near future. READ FULL STORY
