JT is still battling at the hospital, so, after talking to Ward, Vincent
and Catherine rush to the hospital and find Tess crying because they’ve told her that he’s lost too
much blood and won’t make it. Though JT’s not one of the lead characters,
without him the show wouldn’t be the same. Tess is devastated, Cat is shocked
and Vincent too.
Enraged, Gabe hits Catherine, knocking her to the floor and tries to attack
her with a broken bottle. Catherine impales him with a pool stick. So Gabe
dies… to the hands of Catherine, not Vincent. So Catherine did NOT kill him in
anger but in self-defense. And I liked that Gabe tried to kill her as a “HUMAN”.
Gabe made the decision to try to kill Cat all on his own and entirely for
cold-blooded revenge because she had “collared” him. When Gabe killed
the witness, he crossed a moral line from which he could never return. The man
who professed to love Catherine had no problem tossing her across the room and then heading
toward her with a broken wine bottle in his hand. Once again, Gabe pushed
Catherine to the limits and her badass self defense skills came out with no
hesitation. But this time, Gabe was all
out of last-minute resuscitations. R.I.P. Gabe.
Cockiness was always Gabe’s problem and in the end it was his downfall. I
loved the look on his face when Catherine
snapped onto his neck the collar
and gem and all the smugness drained from his body. Priceless! And I like that
Cat finally admitted that she “despises” Gabe at the beginning of
this episode in her talk with Vincent. Now she even called him
“bastard”! (no offence, Sendhil). Catherine
FINALLY came fully to terms with who Gabe was.
CATHERINE: “Just so you know, attacking
JT didn’t stop him from putting together all the evidence to connect everything
to you. And I mean everything.”
Tess arrives as JT is being wheeled away by an ambulance and taken by
paramedics to the hospital. Tess panics over having been so mean to him.
Catherine encourages her to stay strong because he needs her right now.The
performance Nina Lisandrello gave at JT’s loft was perfect. The strong,
sarcastic woman was reduced to quaking sobs at the thought of what might happen
to JT. She has been pushing JT away, and
been taking him for granted, closing herself off from being open and
affectionate with him. Now she may never be able to make up for her coldness.
JT is rushed to the hospital, in critical condition, with Tess by his side.
This is one of the best Catherine moment for me,
when Vincent’s blood from the vials is all over her hands and she realizes that
the plan isn’t right. That they need to do this TOGETHER or it won’t work. She
finally realizes it isn’t about which one of them saves the other more often or
who sacrifices the most, it’s about them being together and when they are
together there is almost nothing they can’t accomplish.The thing is that in the
end Rebecca’s plan to kill the other beast on her own actually got Alistair
killed. Cat finally realizes that the way to keep Vincent from becoming a
monster, and the only way to save herself, is for the two of them to fight
together. Unlike Rebecca, who, by keeping herself apart from Alistair,
unwittingly sent him to his death. Catherine remembers what she read on
Rebecca’s journal and interprets it correctly for the first time.
Tess meets with Cat in the middle of the street. Cat
is having another crisis thinking about following the advice of her dead
relative, Rebecca. She says she wonders if by making Vincent vulnerable, she’s
putting him at risk. At that point, witnessing Vincent and Cat’s devotion
throughout their struggle against Gabe, Tess makes question whether or not she also had found
“the one” in JT. So, suddenly, Tess wants a relationship like Cat
and Vincent’s??. Not only that but she confesses it at the worst possible time.
Then Cat says she’s going to lay down the blood trail.
Vincent is still unconscious, Catherine has him in her car. Cat says Tess that she can’t lose Vincent and Tess
says she’s taking a big risk. Tess says the plan is crazy and Cat says she’ll
do what she has to in order to protecting Vincent from Gabe. Catherine echoes
Rebecca’s actions and decides to go after Gabe herself, or better, she just
wants leading him into a trap by “leaving blood crumbs all over the
city”.Tess worried to lose her friend and is skeptical about what’s
written in her ancestor’s journal.
TESS: I mean,
come on, aren’t you banking a lot on this journal? Isn’t that the same journal
that said she killed her Vincent? Really?
CATHERINE: I don’t know what happened or why. It doesn’t make sense, but I’m not doing
this because of the journal, I’m doing this because what does make sense is
protecting Vincent from Gabe. AND THAT’S ALL THAT MATTERS TO ME.
Cat will figure out the rest of the plan by sitting down next to her
“handsome sleeping Beast” 😍 and
reading her ancestor’s diary…Cat assumes it’s her responsibility to protect
Vincent from losing his humanity. Just like Rebecca all those centuries ago,
Cat thinks that she needs to protect her Beast from himself. That the only way
to save him is to stop him from tipping over that line; that point of no return;
the line that Gabe has long since crossed. I loved her conviction!
plan involves JT gathering
evidence to connect Gabe to murders,
but not Muirfield, because the evidence needs to lead solely to Gabe and not
reveal anything about Vincent, and Tess convincing Cap. WARD to have a SWAT
JT: How much evidence do you want me to put together? I
mean, uh, I could show how Gabe experimented on himself, corrupted his own DNA;
that will connect him to the murders. But do you really want me to include
CATHERINE: No. No. I
don’t want anything that could possibly lead this to Vincent. If this works,
the public needs to think that everything begins and ends with Gabe.
