Cat and Tess head to the cemetery to dig around the Keller brothers’
headstones, and Tess and Cat briefly discuss JT. Tess didn’t want to flaunt the
fact she could have a normal thing with JT while Cat still suffered the
consequences of loving a beast.Catherine doesn’t judge; she’s more focused on
fixing Vincent’s situation. Tess brings up all the logical flaws with the gem
as a solution, but Cat can’t hear it. Tess offers reassurances that she knows
they’ll overcome, and admits she’s personally struggling because she just
doesn’t know how to help. After digging for a while, they find the gem plus
some money and a passport in one of the graves.. It’s funny how Tess feels that
she needs to explain herself to Cat; as if Cat is in a position to judge
anyone, and she herself says so. I do love Tess’s pep talk as she realizes that
Catherine is feeling vulnerable and unsure of the reality she and Vincent are
facing (yes, they are EPIC!!!!) and the way she admits her own feelings of
helplessness and that Cat and JT are very important people in her life.
Catherine calls Tess, not realizing that she is at JT’s and
was in bed with him when she called him earlier, and asks for her to come over
to vouch for her. Tess tries to wiggle her way out of the fact that she is not
so close to the station by saying she is
at the gym. Cat counters that the gym is
close as well and Tess responds that she changed gym. Tess says her trainer is
yelling in the background when Cat inquires about the noise.
JT: She obviously hasn’t made up her
mind yet. Besides, you have every right to tell her how you feel. That it meant
something to you.
VINCENT: You’re right. JT: So, what are you waiting for? Go
talk to her.
CATHERINE: I don’t want to talk to Vincent. I don’t even know what
I would say to him.
As usual, JT gives Vincent some good advice. The guy has the best advice and
general wisdom bombs about life ever. He tells him to talk to Cat and figure it
out. She may be with Gabe, but he didn’t put a ring on it and Cat didn’t even
take his key, so……
CATHERINE: I’m more concerned about what I’m gonna say to Gabe.
I feel like I cheated on him.
TESS: Okay, with all due respect to Gabe, it’s
not like you were living together. You didn’t even take his key. I mean, sure,
you owe him an explanation. But you have the right to change your mind.
Catherine immediately clings onto the idea of “break-up sex” and
dismisses her night with Vincent as a mistake. I think Catherine’s hilarious in
her way and has so many layers. There’s something amazing about her twisted
sense of logic and even impressive in its self-deceiving complexity. First of all, she and Vincent broke up too
long ago for this to have been break-up sex.
Secondly, she’s already in a new relationship with Gabe, so even though
they’re not living together, she did pretty much cheat on him. Catherine doesn’t
even take her relationship with Gabe seriously enough to acknowledge the nature
of her transgression…and it’s reflective of the very truth here: she was
never committed to Gabe and she never let go of Vincent. Catherine
said “i feel like I cheated on him” about Gabe and the fact she isn’t
sure that this is considering cheating is clearly tells in her heart she never
took her relation with him seriously no matter how may times she said the
TESS: Okay, well, I hate to break
it to you, but it doesn’t sound like break-up s*x to me.
JT: Break-up s*x is
sloppy and short and generally not great. I mean, uh, that’s what I heard. Or
read. Online. Point is, you need to talk to Cat, you know? Find out what it
meant to her.
VINCENT: She walked out, man. She made it pretty clear what it
meant to her. Besides, she’s with Gabe.
JT: She’s not wearing a ring.
Tess decides that it was NOT break-up sex because there was “kissing”
involved. JT is better informed on the
subject 😀(thanks to Google and/or personal experience), so he concludes it was
NOT breakup sex because break up sex tends to be “sloppy, short and generally
not great”. I loved JT’s simple,
too-true assessment that break-up sex is the opposite of what Vincent and
I like JT & Tess’s supporting roles. They really know
how to keep Vincent and Catherine sane during their break up! I know that Tess
was pushing Catherine towards Gabe (and JT was Tori/Vincent shipper), but I
think Tess just wanted her best friend to be happy, and truly believed that
Gabe could be that guy. (OBVIOUSLY SHE WAS WRONG!) No matter what has happened
in the past, but the fact that Catherine needed to talk to Tess about ‘what
happened,’ proves she trusts Tess enough
to take her advice. She’s conflicted because she doesn’t know how to categorize
her night with Vincent let alone understand it and she needs ‘someone’ to tell
her that “her heart WANTS what it wants” (Vincent!) The parallel
scene between JT and Vincent and Cat and Tess was fantastic.
