Catch Me if You Can is the 15th episode of the Second Season, and the 37th episode overall.
This episode was written by Mr.Tuchman who we haven’t seen
since episode 2×05: Reunion, that episode that began crazy descent of VinCat until the breakup. This episode was
the crucial step of beginning to put VinCat back together. It’s nice to have a
female director on set. In “Catch Me if You Can,” much of the action
revolves around the gang trying to capture Sam and bring him to justice. This
episode is centered all around the Gabe-Catherine-Vincent love triangle.Catherine
seems to have lost the ability to think for herself and is agreeing with her
new boyfriend in such an incredibly passive way about pretty much everything.
It’s a protective measure against another broken heart, but it’s a fruitless
and hurtful method for everyone involved.
It’s sad that Cat felt enough pain to use this method to escape
acknowledging her real feelings for Vincent. However,we got a taste of the Old
Catherine back in action who kicking ass
with no hesitations at the notion of Vincent’s life being in danger.
We had some more
pitch perfect moments of sage wisdom from JT in this episode: from the gummy
worms until assuring Vincent that it’s wrong to try and fully suppress his
beast side or to do anything merely as part of a plan to impress Cat. JT scenes
were wonderful. We have one of the greatest scenes in the history of the show:
Vincent and Cat end up trapped and literally tangled inside the flipped over
car. The car crash aftermath was a wonderful combination of cute, funny, and
sexy as Vincent and Cat argued in very close physical quarters.Their bickering
crackles with chemistry that even Gabe can’t deny when he gets an earful of it
on the phone.
Gabe… He’s threatened by Vincent and he does not like that
Cat’s old flame is still a major part of her life. 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 . Catherine and
Vincent cannot stay away from each other. It was a sort of real life do-over of
Cat’s dark dream from last episode, ending in a development that was anything
but nightmarish. It was so well done, Kristin and Jay eyes spoke volumes.
