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.
Side note: I wondering how many pumpkin cookies Jay Ryan ate throughout all
enough audio to try and find out who the handler is and JT finds out it was the
FBI that hacked into Gabe’s computer. Catherine reasons that she and Vincent
should have take her father up on his initially rebuffed offer of Thanksgiving
dinner.As Cat explains, she wants to interrogate Bob with the aid of her human
polygraph boyfriend. Hopefully Vincent can use his lie detector skills on
Reynolds. It makes sense… still seems too risky.
Vincent calls Reynolds telling him the mission was compromised but he’s
safe while Tess record the message (and Tess is surprised that Vincent ever
trusted Reynolds). Vincent plays his role for a little while before losing his
temper and threatens his handler for stealing his life, threatening to hunt him
down before Cat stops him.
JT interjects some reason, the handler did just try to kill him. The group
learns that Vincent doesn’t even hear his handler’s real voice and knows
absolutely nothing about him, yet is still willing to kill for him.
It hurt him to hear Cat say he is not in control. The group puts her
rambling down to a “momentary loss of control” since Cat does babble when she’s
nervous. Vincent learns that they’re trying to find his handler and calls it a security breach after he spent
so much effort telling her she couldn’t ask questions; he blames them for his
handler trying to kill him, calling it a security breach.
