Tensions are running high for Vincent (Jay Ryan) and Cat (Kristin Kreuk) on The CW’s Beauty and the Beast, which returns from its mid-season hiatus this Monday.
Despite trying to prevent Vincent from further injuries, last November’s mid-season finale left Cat with no other choice but to shoot him. In a new exclusive clip for the upcoming episode, we see a charged scene between the two as Cat and Vincent have a heated discussion over why she pulled the trigger. Watch the exclusive clip below:
I almost forgot but today JRO officially turns a year old. It’s hard to believe that a year has passed for us. I know that I have been a little behind in posting news on Jay as well as his show beauty and the beast. Real life had taken me a way for quite some time but I am back now and I plan on making up for that. I have been working my behind off to post all the news that I missed. Even if it is old or about episodes that have already aired. I will continue to get them posted for you guys. So bare with me in the mean time.
On the mid-season finale of “Beauty and the Beast,” the gang tried to stop Reynolds from carrying out his assassination mission against Vincent.
In “Man or Beast?,” Vincent (Jay Ryan) and Tori (Amber Skye Noyes) are about to be blown up by a bomb. Tori uses her beastly powers to break free of her bonds, and Vincent tells her that they’ll track down whoever is trying to kill them. But when they meet in the middle of the room, it explodes.
Meanwhile, Gabe (Senhil Ramamurthy) and Cat (Kristin Kreuk) have figured out that Reynolds (Ted Whittall) is the one behind the beast killings. Gabe and Cat both run to the scene, but Vincent is nowhere to be found.
When Cat gets to her apartment, she is shocked to find both Vincent and Tori. They were both able to escape the explosion, but Tori was wounded.
Gabe and J.T. (Austin Basis) explain to Cat and Tess (Nina Lisandrello) that they want to catch Reynolds by making him believe that Vincent and Tori are dead, and that they have incriminating evidence that links him to their deaths. But Reynolds has booked a flight to Geneva to escape the country, so they have to carry out their plan before his flight leaves.
Vincent’s role in the plan is to track down the guy who kidnapped Tori and rigged the bomb, who Tori saw when he tied her up.
Cat and Gabe then meet with Reynolds at the FBI office, where they convince him that they have evidence regarding Vincent’s handler. Then to make Reynolds feel even guiltier, Cat cries at the end of the visit and tells Reynolds that she doesn’t know what she would do without him.
Meanwhile, Vincent and Tori find the bomber, but Tori ends up killing him. Tori reveals that she thought the plan to bring him back alive was stupid all along, and says she wants Reynolds dead. Cat and the gang are angry that she killed the bomber. Nevertheless, Tori tries to convince Vincent that they should kill Reynolds together.
The team then decides to use the bomb maker’s phone to blackmail Reynolds. They send Reynolds a photo and a message from the phone, successfully threatening him.
Later, Reynolds doesn’t catch his flight out of America; he meets with Gabe in a dark parking lot. Gabe proceeds to show them the fake evidence they have, but Reynolds thinks that Gabe is lying. Then he says that he should have killed Gabe too, giving them all the evidence they need to press charges against him.
Reynolds tries to get away, but Cat stands in front of his car, pointing at gun at his head. Just as she’s driving him to the station, Vincent jumps onto the windshield, causing the car to crash. While Cat is passed out, Vincent tears Reynolds from the car and beats him, screaming “You did this to me!” Vincent tries to choke him to death, but Cat intervenes, telling him not to kill him.
He doesn’t listen, so Cat shoots him, and he runs away. She thens points the gun at Reynolds, telling him again that he’s under arrest.
As Reynolds sits in jail, Tori goes to Vincent, who is bandaging his wounds.
On the next episode, “Don’t Die on Me,” Cat will be interrogated and Vincent’s life will be in jeopardy.

On Monday night’s mid-season finale of Beauty And the Beast, fans of The CW remake of the 1980’s classic series found out just how far Detective Catherine Chandler (series lead Kristin Kreuk) would go for her love, Vincent Keller (series lead Jay Ryan); and it wasn’t all sunshine and roses.
Given the fact that the team – Cat, Vincent, Tess (series regular Nina Lisandrello), J.T. (series regular Austin Basis) and Gabriel (series regular Sendhil Ramamurthy) – finally figured out in last week’s episode that Cat’s biological father FBI Special Agent Bob Reynolds (recurring guest star Ted Whittall) was Vincent’s mysterious handler they had to figure out how to bring him down. After all, Reynolds has been the man pulling all the strings on Vincent’s “beast hits”, was the one to take Vincent’s memories and basically kidnapped Vincent at the end of the show’s first season.
But the big question was how they were going to bring Reynolds down when they didn’t have enough proof to convict him. New beast Tori Windsor (recurring guest star Amber Skye Noyes) kept insisting to Vincent that they needed to take him down, ending his life; but Cat, Tess and Gabe were, of course, strongly opposed to that option. They wanted to bring Reynolds down and send him to prison where he belonged all the while holding onto the last vestige of humanity contained deep inside Vincent’s soul.
In the end, though, the inevitable showdown happened between Reynolds, Cat and Vincent with Cat taking her father in for his crimes and making the toughest, and perhaps cruelest, decision against Vincent by shooting him to stop him from killing Reynolds.
This direction in the storyline may help to add tension and have fans clamoring for the next new episode of ‘Beauty And the Beast’ – which won’t happen until January 13 – but it certainly leaves their relationship in tatters. And will, undoubtedly, open up new avenues for the powers that be behind the show to take Vincent and Catherine in new directions with their love lives.
The chemistry between Vincent and Tori has been obvious since their encounter at Thanksgiving – not to mention the kiss, reluctantly on Vincent’s part or not, they shared – and Gabe’s feelings for Cat have been written all over his face – and pointed out to him on a regular basis by Tess. So fans should probably prepare themselves for a shift in the love department for our lead characters.
In fact, according to executive producer Brad Kern, Vincent and Catherine may be apart romantically for a time, but they will “discover there is more than just love that binds them; they are destined to be together for more than just romantic reasons. There is a mythological reason (that) will (be discovered) too”.
Needless to say, fans will need to check out the rest of the second season of ‘Beauty And the Beast’ when it returns to The CW on Monday, January 13 at 9/8c to find out what happens next.
Brand new information on the ninth episode of the second season of The CW’s Beauty and the Beast has indeed surfaced, and it features an angry Vincent (Jay Ryan) and a panicky J.T. (Austin Basis).
In a promo clip of the respective installment, which is titled Don’t Die On Me, Catherine (Kristin Kreuk) can be seen putting down her badge and gun on a table and saying, “I really didn’t want it to end this way.”
Vincent is shown in beast mode, as per usual, and J.T. is spotted in what appears to be a less than ideal position. However, Vincent makes a bold statement about himself, saying that Vincent Keller is dead.
Meanwhile, J.T. seems to be having a panic attack of sorts, as he says “no” multiple times. Judging by the clip, it appears that the situation doesn’t look to hot for the crew.
The ninth episode of The CW’s Beauty and the Beast, Don’t Die On Me, is slated to hit the small screen on Monday, Jan. 13 at 9/8 p.m. Central Time. For more information on the upcoming installment, be sure to keep checking back with Enstars.
The above-mentioned promo video can be watched below.
Will Catherine take down her own father in order to save Vincent?
In the final moments of the fall’s penultimate episode, Vincent (Jay Ryan) went to save Tori (Amber Skye Noyes) who was set up by Cat’s father, Detective Reynolds (Ted Whittal), after he became aware she was a beast. With Tori tied up and a bomb by her side, viewers were left wondering what happened when the explosion went off. (Spoiler alert! We have it on good authority both survived.)
On Monday’s midseason finale (9/8c, CW), Catherine will have to decide if she’ll help Gabe (Sendhil Ramamurthy) get Reynolds behind bars for all he’s done. She’ll also come to terms with Vincent’s beastly side overpowering his humanity and whether or not she’s willing to sacrifice everything for the sake of their love. That is, if she can even forgive him for making out with Tori.
In the clip below, Cat shows up to the scene of the explosion where she learns Vincent and Tori’s fate and is hit with the plan that included taking down her own father.
Cat and Vince had big helpings of drama alongside their Thanksgiving turkey on the latest episode of “Beauty and the Beast.”
In the episode, Cat (Kristin Kreuk) and Vincent (Jay Ryan) take up Cat’s biological father’s invitation to spend Thanksgiving with him in order to find out some pivotal information.
Before the Thanksgiving meal, Vince is carrying out his handler (and Cat’s biological father) Reynolds’ (Ted Whittall) wishes to look for a target in a warehouse. He doesn’t sense a threat there, but he goes ahead with it anyway. When Vincent throws something at the building before entering it, it explodes, making it clear to Vince that he may be his handler’s final target. The gang later investigates to see who Vincent’s handler is.
After tracing a call between Vince and his handler, they trace it to the FBI, which is where Reynolds works. Cat and Vince then decide to have Thanksgiving dinner with Reynolds in order to get some answers. At the dinner, Cat tells Reynolds that they need help finding who it is in the FBI who is tracking their “friend” (a.k.a Vincent) who is being targeted. Reynolds plays dumb and acts shocked, as if he is hearing about the handler situation for the first time. However, he agrees to help them out.
Meanwhile, J.T. (Austin Basis) and Tess (Nina Lisandrello) spend Thanksgiving eating pizza and getting drunk, and the two end up kissing.
Back at Thanksgiving dinner, Reynolds tells Vincent that he will try to find his handler if Vince agrees to cut ties with Cat. Otherwise, he says he’ll turn her in. Gabe (Sendhil Ramamurthy) and Tori (Amber Sky Noyes), the female beast, are also in attendance at the dinner, which causes trouble. When Tori and Vince clink glasses, Vince gets angry and Tori becomes a beast, knocking over the table and the whole Thanksgiving meal.
Later, Tori and Vincent talk outside about their beastly issues, and end up kissing, which Cat witnesses.
When Vincent gets back to the city, he enters at hotel room that his handler sent him to. Tori is there, but she’s bound and gagged, and an explosive device is connected to the door. The room then explodes into a huge ball of fire, blowing out the windows and possibly everyone inside.
“Beauty and the Beast” executive producer Brad Kern told TVLine that Tori and Vincent are inevitably attracted to each other because of their beastly powers. “Tori and Vincent amplify each other’s powers and emotions – and that’s an attraction we’re going to continue to play,” Kern said.
Amber Skye Noyes also spoke to TVLine about her character’s intentions, as well as her connection with Vince.
Is Tori a friend or a foe? “We’re not sure, and Tori’s not sure either, so she’s going to have to figure out which one she is – and if she has any control over it,” Noyes said. “But it is pretty clear that there’s only one person she can really talk to about this, and that’s Vincent. So they’re obviously going to have a pretty clear connection.”
Noyes said that Tori has a strong connection with Vincent because of their shared beastliness. “Tori’s going to be able to understand Vincent in certain ways, and vice versa,” she said. “After all, we’ve never seen a male and female beast together, so we don’t really know how that will play out. But it is clear that even though they’re both beasts, Tori’s a new beast, so she doesn’t really know what she’s doing, while Vincent’s more experienced. If anyone is going to be a mentor and teach her a few things, it’s going to be Vincent.”
She also hinted that Tori may be around for longer than three episodes, as was originally announced.
“Tori’s going to be around for a little while,” she said. “She’s got a lot to discover, she’s got a lot to bring to the story and she’s got a lot to add to the dynamic of Vincent and Cat and also Gabe and a lot of other characters. (…) It’s really going to be a cool ride.”
In other “Beauty and the Beast” news, TVLine reported that the show is currently casing the recurring role of Sam, a brilliant and charismatic archeologist who has been affected by something that has happened to him over the past six years.
The next episode of “Beauty and the Beast” will be the mid-season finale.
On the next episode, “Man or Beast?,” “Vincent and Catherine will find themselves at odds on how to deal with Agent Reynolds, which is going to force Vincent to wonder if he is more beast than man. Catherine will end up making a drastic move that will forever change her relationship with Vincent.”
Monday’s episode of “Beauty” and the Beast introduced the first real problem-causing love triangle of the season.
From the time Tori (Amber Skye Noles) and Vincent (Jay Ryan) first met, we realized she had an effect on him. When they touched she turned him into more of a beast — which turned out to be a bad thing since he ended up ripping her dad’s heart out. However, it seems Tori’s effect on Vince may be more than just beast-related since they kissed after a disastrous Thanksgiving meal — and Cat (Kristin Kreuk) saw.
After the episode there was probably uproar over the kiss from VinCat shippers, the creation of a few Vince/Tori shippers and people who were just in plain awe of the kiss.
Now, this is technically not he first love triangle this season since Gabe (Stendhal Ramamurthy) has technically been in love with Cat since the season premiere. However, he’s never really acted on his feelings. (By the way, did anyone catch how Agent Reynolds was pretty much shoving his daughter towards Gabe? He’s obviously #TeamAnyoneButVincent.)
Nevertheless, Tori’s kiss created the first major love conflict.
I have no problem with the love triangle, it makes sense. Vince finally has someone who he can really share his beast issues with so it’s a no brainer that they’d develop a connection. My issue is the way it happened. She went from beasting out, to being confused, to kissing Vince? And, Cat happens to miraculously see? It’s seems to be a bit too quick.
