Season 2: Operation Fake Date

Meanwhile, Cat gets a call from Heather and she mentions her “blue cake” was destroyed by JT’s aversion to strippers. Cat manages to piece together the puzzle of what caused Gabe’s change of heart. She realises that Gabe overheard her talk about playing him and that he has gone back on the agreement about calling off Beth.

Season 2: Operation Fake Date

Vincent gives his press conference and during it, Beth asks about his
altered DNA and the super soldier experiments. Beth pushes and implies his
supersoldier DNA is the reason the FBI is involved. Knox, who is actually
clueless about this, steps in to stop the press conference saying  "We’re involved, because this is a
federal case, not a plot in a comic book"

Season 2: Operation Fake Date

Gabe seems smug about the whole thing
as his driver takes off. Unfortunately, he realizes he took the wrong
cake, so he decides to go back to Cat’s to exchange it. He tells the driver to
turn around as he goes back to deliver it to her. As he approaches the door, he
hears the group talking about the date and how Cat played things a certain way
to get Gabe to trust her. I should say everything was fine until a cake swapped
didn’t go unnoticed and caused Gabe to go back to Cat’s place.The trying to
play the player it never works because some little thing is always overlooked,
in this case, the picking up the wrong cake.

Season 2: Operation Fake Date

Vincent’s
look is so heartbreaking. He looks distraught. The way he reacted to the kiss
is like it was the only thing he heard about the whole evening.

Season 2: Operation Fake Date

The gang, instead of giving Vincent and Catherine some alone time, they
demand all the gory details of Cat’s night out with Gabe. The way Catherine
looks at Vincent when he tells the others to leave because he wants one last
night with her is a look of love combined with some guilt for the fake date

Season 2: Operation Fake Date

Catherine goes inside her apartment and finds the whole gang waiting for
her with Vincent standing  in front of
the “pin the macho” poster.
It almost seems he was going to put on a show for
Catherine! It was hilarious!😎

Season 2: Operation Fake Date

After the decorating is over, Gabe takes Cat home. She is obviously feeling
guilty about the whole situation. He confuses Cat’s guilt with forgiveness and
decides to end the night with a kiss. About the kiss, I mean the
“peck”, I was not surprised that Catherine allowed it. After all, she
was trying to be convincing. I mean it was a brief kiss, just a peck. It was
all part of the act. I think it did surprise Cat, so you get a non-reaction
from her. And when you watch the scene, Gabe puts his hand behind Cat’s neck so
I think she did the best thing at the time. I think it was to show not only
just how deluded Gabe was but also how happy he was at the thought that he
still had a shot at winning Cat back and thus his greater sense of anger and
betrayal when he will learn the truth. The camera lingers on Gabe’s face at the
end of the scene, not Catherine’s. It is his reaction that is the important
one, showing how much the whole evening meant to him. Don’t get me wrong, I
HATED seeing him kiss her. It made my skin crawl and I am sure it did the same
to Catherine.

Season 2: Operation Fake Date

Gabe takes Cat to a cake decorating place. Catherine tries to focus on
cookie cutters and making up for being an absent sister. He tells Catherine
that himself pushed his beloved mother down the stairs in an uncontrollable fit
of rage.This is what Gabe is really afraid of: it is not Vincent and what he
may do to hurt Cat, it is the beast
within himself
.  He is projecting his
fear, as if imprisoning Vincent will, once and for all, lock away the beast he
fears still lurks within. He doesn’t doubt Vincent loves Cat, but he is a beast
and will eventually hurt her. Gabe apologizes for the “questionable” things he did,
but he doesn’t want history to repeat itself, “not with someone he loves”. I
always thought Gabe was not really capable of loving,  really loving. Gabe went through hell as a
kid and probably received a sheltered life where he got whatever he wanted but
probably never got what he really needed. He also had to deal with his beast
side since he was a small kid which cannot have been that easy. Even though
I  do not think Gabe loved Catherine, I
do think Gabe thinks he loves Catherine. And in his sick mind he does actually
believe that he is justified in his actions to save Catherine from Vincent. He
is trying to hang on to his humanity and he feels that Cat is the key to that
humanity. He is desperate to win her love
because he knows that without that he’ll be lost. He is completely willing to
let go of his Vincent hunt if that meant he could have Cat back. What was sad
was that he let himself believe that was possible and what Catherine/KK did
greatly is to show how she also felt guilty pretending all was good. In this
cake making scene  both KK and Sendhil
did a great job. I hate that they made Gabe a love interest for Catherine, they
could have been just  friends.

TESS: Okay, I have no idea wh…

TESS: Okay, I have no idea what that means. But they are
not going to the airport. They stopped on 72nd Street.

VINCENT: What’s on 72nd?
😀😁

Season 2: Operation Fake Date

Vincent
picks up his backpack and gets ready to go anyway until JT pulls out a tranquilliser
gun, threatening to shoot him if he steps out. Heather panics when she sees the
gun. Tess tells her not to worry… it’s just a tranquillizer gun. So Vincent
stays home.
