contact between Vincent and Tori causes a family holiday drama. As Reynolds
keeps up his banter about Vincent’s job and life, Vincent fully transforms into
a beast and attacks Cat’s father, forces him back against a pillar until Cat
gets through to him. He stops just before he kills him and runs out. I can’t
really blame him, because Cat’s dad really is a horrible man.
Reynolds asks Gabe, and subsequently Tori, to stay for dinner. And when Vincent and Tori shake hands and pretend like they don’t know each other, they
both react badly to the contact; the mutual touch seems to affect both of them.
They both retreat and try to pretend they are OK.
Gabe drives out to Montauk with the desired documents,worried about
relaying the information electronically. He also brings Tori, the She-Beast,
because the rich girl has just driven her car into the Hudson River and really
shouldn’t be alone right now. Reynolds pretends to be super impressed by all of
this. Surely, this is a man far more worthy of his daughter’s affections than
that other creepy guy who lives on a boat and is unemployed Oh Bob! Gabe doesn’t exactly meet your
“human” criteria either. Even if he does wear a tie. Vincent pretends to be
civil but not overly familiar with either Gabe or Tori.
Reynolds is using Cat’s grief to fuel his own personal mission to clean up
the mess he made with Muirfield. He is willing to add to his own daughter’s
misery if it means eliminating all of the threats he considers the beasts to
be. Reynolds is a classic villain who has style and class as well as being manipulative and
Cat thinks she is being super smart by saying “their friend” is a beast and
that “he or she” is different and needs help. The two of them, trying to say
pumpkin with no purpose whatsoever, alerted Bob because
he’s not an idiot. So,playing the good father card, Reynolds agrees to
help them find the “handler” and asks for a copy of their research. This is not
really a victory for Catherine, since Reynolds **is the handler. But nobody
knows that yet, so it seems to be a really victory!
Cat clumsily drags the topic to Muirfield and tries to feel out what
Reynolds knows about them and this entire thing is awkward. Catherine calls Bob
“dad” and it’s weird! She desperately tries to get information from
someone who doesn’t want to give it.
