CATHERINE: I keep
waiting for the other shoe to drop.
It is understandable why Catherine seems nervous, despite her life has been wonderful
and beast-free in the last two months.The last two seasons have shown us you
need “to wait for the other shoe to drop” because things aren’t
always going to be roses and flowers. Vincent says that the agents from last
season must’ve been lying about the new creatures because they haven’t heard
anything. He is optimistic, hopeful and determined to secure their peaceful
First day of work for Vincent: he checks himself out
in the mirror and Catherine puts a stethoscope around his neck. I find it
ironic and clever that Catherine gives him a stethoscope so that he doesn’t
have to rely on his beast hearing.
Cat and Vincent are having a normal morning routine as a couple. The alarm
wakes Vincent and he clicks it off (they set their alarm for six minutes before
seven. Randomly normal, cute thing). He kisses Cat cheek and wakes her. I loved
this scene of Vincent and Cat waking in bed together and his sexy greeting: he
whispered “good morning” to her … They get up and fix breakfast together.
VinCat is a seemingly happy couple enjoying an ordinary life. It is such a
sweet moment between these two people who have been fighting to be together.
They smile with their “goofy” smiles, they are playful,… normal.
