Season 2: About Last Night

CATHERINE:Tess, I thought I had this all figured out. I was gonna
go over there and tell him I was moving on with Gabe, but…

TESS: But your
heart got in the way.

CATHERINE: My libido got in the way. That doesn’t mean
that I’m gonna go back to Vincent. I HAVE TO MOVE FORWARD.

TESS: I know, but
it’s not like you’re picking a shirt here.

The very fact that Catherine believes her libido got in the way of her feelings
for Gabe (if she has any at all), proves that she has sexual desire for
VINCENT!!! And that Gabe, obviously, wasn’t satisfying enough. Why would a
woman in a new relationship where things suppose to be still hot in this
relation has a libido for any man else other than her called boyfriend ?! It
means there is something seriously wrong in this relation, simply her heart
isn’t in this relation at all, which leads us again to where her heart is
/with. I believe that the key to Catherine’s reluctance to commit to either
Gabe or Vincent is the fact that she has not felt in control of her life for
quite a while now.

Season 2: Catch Me If You Can

Gabe tells Catherine he doesn’t understand why she
keeps ending up in Vincent’s arms. Cat reassures Gabe that she’s with him. But
Gabe wants Vincent out of her life, for good. And while Gabe frames it as a
request, it’s pretty clear his request is a requirement.😡

Cat is still in denial and says she wants to be with
Gabe though she clearly does not want it. She acts like a brainwashed puppet
especially in front of Gabe. That person is being bossy as hell, he keeps
giving her ridiculous ultimatums, yet she stays with him and takes it, not even
getting angry. What is wrong with her? I thinked about it. Catherine-S2 started
off  refusing to give up on Vincent and
believing in her heart that if he just got his memories back or was free of his
handler that everything would be ok. Following her heart, she gets shoved to
the ground, is reduced to begging the love of her life to choose her and their
relationship, and is forced to shoot the guy she wanted to spend the rest of
her life with. Following her heart didn’t work out so well for her, so then she
tries the head route.
Gabe has been there helpful and supportive, she doesn’t
have to hide anything about beasts from him, he knows about her parents, no big
secrets to keep from him, and he is waiting with open arms. So, while Vincent
has to find the balance between his human side and beast side, Cat has to find
the balance between her head and her heart.
Gabe know that Catherine is in love
with Vincent and he also know that Vincent loves Catherine more than anything.
When Vincent returned with no memory of Catherine but still definitely drawn to
her, they had lots of unfinished business. Maybe Gabe thought Vincent would
never remember Catherine or his love for her, or maybe he thought Vincent would
never regain his sense of self, but, whatever he thought, he was wrong. He inserted
himself into Catherine’s life, knowing that she had unresolved feelings for
Vincent so, he can hardly pretend to be the injured party now. He never gave
the woman space and Catherine listened to everyone except herself and made a
huge error getting involved with Gabe. Vincent is a superior human being with
all his flaws. He loves Catherine and he respects her. He love her selflessly
whereas Gabe seems to want a possession to control and manipulate. This just
makes me remember what Vincent told Catherine when Gabe first started
insinuating himself into her life (S1 ep.20 “Anniversary”):“I’ll
just be here for you when you realize the error of your ways”
If Gabe was
as smart as he thinks he is, he would know that making ultimatums is going to
blow up in his face.

Season 2: Catch Me If You Can

At the precinct, Gabe tells Sam that they have enough
to charge him with “domestic terrorism” now. Sam is way too calm until Gabe
mentions his son. Sam proclaims he’d do anything to get justice for his son. He
tells Cat & Gabe that he used to believe in God. But not since his son
died. The USB he has stolen from the CIA office with names on it of people he
thinks are responsible for his son’s death is apparently encrypted, but Sam
remains unbothered. Gabe gets Sam arrested. I have to give Sam credit of an insight
about Gabe not knowing what real love is. He’s a better profiler than his wife Dana!😀

Season 2: Catch Me If You Can

Once the download from the server is complete Sam pulls the trigger without
hesitation. Cat attacks Sam and finally manages to cuff him to the radiator.
She leaves but not before threatening Sam by proclaiming “If Vincent is dead,
you are dead”….and I am convinced she meant it.
We finally
get to see the “Old Catherine” back in action that is connected
nicely to the reemergence of the “Old Vincent” from “Held
Hostage”. Here we had Catherine
kicking a** and taking names with no hesitations at the notion of Vincent’s
life being in danger. That’s is one of my favorite Catherine moments from this
ep.

Season 2: Catch Me If You Can

Cat finds Sam in his apartment across the street. She walks in, points a gun
at him and tries to “arrest him” but she notices Sam is holding a bomb trigger.

CATHERINE: “What is that? What, this?”

SAM: “This
is my get-out-of-jail-free card, Detective. Xavier’s wired with enough C-4 to
blow himself and anyone around him to pieces. So I would drop the gun if I were
you.”

Season 2: Catch Me If You Can

Gabe tells Vincent all he can do is release Sam. He does what any
reasonable ADA would do because it’s all Vincent’s fault…Yep😠

Season 2: Catch Me If You Can

Gabe decides to confront Sam the lawyer way. He tries to bluff to Sam to
make him think he already has a case against him and tries to get Sam to plea
out in return for helping to bring his son’s killers to justice. But Sam has an
ace under his sleeve: he turns around by telling him that he has already
captured a new beast candidate since he’d injected the poor bastard with beast
serum and had chained him up at home.
They’d better let him go before Xavier dies of thirst. Gabe claims he’s
bluffing, but Vincent senses that Sam is telling the truth.

Season 2: Catch Me If You Can

Thankfully she is saved by a phone call, when JT
calls to tell them Vincent caught Sam.

Season 2: Catch Me If You Can

At the end of their conversation, Gabe gives Cat a
key to his loft. Cat’s clearly stunned. She is still determined to show Gabe
that she has chosen him, even we can detect a hint of panic in her eyes when
Gabe offers her the key to his apartment.

Season 2: Catch Me If You Can

When Cat, after coffee, returns to Gabe’s, Gabe shares
that his research into Sam continues to show just how slippery Sam is. Although
Gabe has no evidence on Sam to support a murder charge, he feels certain that
he can make a case for identity theft: they can’t exactly charge him with
“conspiracy to create beasts”! Once Sam’s in the slammer, Gabe can spend the
rest of Sam’s prison sentence building a case against him for murder. It is
actually a decent plan. Cat mentions that catching Sam will be a way to start
their beast-free life.
