Season 2: Beast is the New Black

JT: He’s not
here. Meanwhile, it’s a Harrison Ford movie over there.

CATHERINE: The good news is, only one guard saw him as a beast, and
I think I put that genie back in the bottle, so…

JT: So, what about security cameras? What about flashing banners
running across every TV screen shouting, “War Hero Turned Murderer Now
Fugitive”?

GABE: I tried to
tell you before. I found something in the ambulance. That’s his bandage. It’s
torn apart. It’s like he wanted to get rid of the gem so he could beast out.

Cat, JT, Tess and Gabe meet up to talk about what happened as they try to piece
together where Vincent can be. JT refuses to believe Vincent planned his own
escape until he realizes he did it to protect his girlfriend, which makes him
VERY upset.

I think Gabe’s strategy moving forward is to stir up trouble and dissention
WITHIN the Fab Four. His strategy is wickedly simple:  "divide and conquer", chip away at
Vincent’s support base by making people think that they HAVE to choose a side
between saving Vincent OR saving Cat (rather than finding a way to save them
TOGETHER). Vincent’s strongest support has always come with Cat especially and
JT and Tess all working together.  For
example, it was the four of them that enabled Vincent to be rescued from Muirfield
after Evan turned him in in the episode “Heart of Darkness.”  With JT and Tess supporting her, Cat was able
to get directly into the facility.  NOW,
Gabe will want to keep Tess sidelined from helping Vincent if she sees it as
dangerous and endgame potential for Cat.

The bad news are not over. Gabe’s contact at the DA office sent him a file
and, apparently, they have pictures of Vincent dumping Windsor’s body… So the
evidence isn’t that circumstantial after all and Cat begins to plan an elaborate
defense: he was a hero war veteran with PTSD and amnesia, who found Windsor
already dead and just couldn’t come forward. Cat’s plan quickly unravels when
Gabe reveals that the police also found Windsor’s heart in Vincent’s
refrigerator. Uh yeah, that’s a bit harder to explain. Gabe most likely didn’t
store organs to later use them against Vincent, which only leaves one option:
Vincent is being framed. She recalls that Vincent had a handler at the time who
would have been very likely to stash away blackmail material for later. The
only one other person who could be responsible is Bob Reynolds, Cat’s dad.
And that quip about how Gabe wasn’t keeping organs on reserve in case Cat
got back with Vincent was hilarious with a hint of gallows humor at the same
time.

Season 2: Beast is the New Black

Tess and JT arrive separately as Cat comes out of prisoner’s intake. JT is
too worried about his best friend’s arrest and he clearly doesn’t have the
energy to cover up his transportation methods. Catherine asks for help and give
them an update. JT still has trouble believing Gabe and during a rant, blurts
out that he and Tess slept together right in front of Gabe and Cat!. And yes,
even with the amount of tension… it was sort of funny. Poor JT, too stress!
I love JT’s
line: “playing both sides”,he is the only one who is very suspicious
of Gabe through entire episode. And the way Gabe looks at Tess at the end of
the awkward scene where JT, before running away, reveals that he has been
getting some action and Tess is involved, is priceless!

Season 2: Beast is the New Black

Gabe reaches out to his contacts at the D.A. office. Gabe making himself
useful is something that always sounds suspicious to me. Maybe, at the moment,
Gabe was actually trying to help Catherine catch the person responsible for
Vincent’s arrest……😡

Season 2: About Last Night

Gabe drives Cat home and stops in front of her building and it’s clear
she’s chosen Vincent. He insists Vincent hasn’t changed and he can’t protect
her from him which annoys Cat that he thinks she needs protecting. He calls Cat
naïve and tells her she is making a mistake. His argument is that he used to be
what Vincent is and he knows he will end up hurting her. He won’t listen to
Cat’s claim that Vincent has indeed changed. She says she’s only sorry that
things didn’t work out between them. Gabe vows to not let Vincent hurt her.
That can’t mean anything good.

The break-up scene between Catherine and Gabe is really well done. It has
all of the emotions in a break-up that ring so true: the awkwardness, the
hollowness, the bitterness.  It’s hard
not to hate Gabe for still trying to manipulate Cat right up until the last
breath of their relationship, but he’s just getting pathetic now. Moreover, we can see that Catherine’s too
smart to let Gabe talk her into anything she doesn’t want to do…she’s the
only one who can do that. Now that Cat has made a decision, and it wasn’t him,
Gabe is on the offensive. He has nothing to lose. And if Sam’s character has
taught us anything, it’s that people with nothing to lose will do just about
anything.

The scene is amazing, I really like it, not only because we know what
happens here but Kristin and Sendhil are great in this scene! There actually is
good chemistry between them here! Unlike the “love” / kiss
/relationship scenes…You can feel the tension, the frosty atmosphere, the
pain… very dramatic

Season 2: About Last Night

Vincent takes a look at Gabe….

Season 2: About Last Night

Gabe recaps to Vincent his phone conversation with JT. It seems that Sam is
after ALL nefarious lobbying group. Gabe seems to empathize with Sam; he thinks
that perhaps they should let him take out the bastards. It is Vincent who
suggests that they should do the right thing, and not play judge, jury, and
executioner by taking the law into their own hands. At this point Gabe decides
to give Vincent some pseudo-advice and tells him to “stay away from
Catherine”(broken record) because he can’t have her. Vincent gets a smug face
that seems to say “I just had her last night!”.😉

Season 2: About Last Night

Gabe and Catherine go to the swanky party
and it’s another fancy dress party (very familiar to Beauty and the
Beast fans: one of that Catherine has attended
last year). They also realise, belatedly, that as an ADA Gabe actually has a
high profile and may be recognised as clearly not as Mr. Beaumont who he is
pretending to be. In fact, a couple of attendees recognize ADA Lowan  and it’s time for Cat to call her backup fake
husband.
(Maybe all those talk shows Vincent has done make him such low
profile?🤔)

Season 2: About Last Night

Cat and
Gabe meet Vincent at judge Westbrook office and they find the judge with a big
headache. Vincent and Gabe bicker about using beast senses and hacking homeland
security  and Catherine tells them they
need to focus on finding Sam.

Season 2: About Last Night

Cat and Gabe
go to Rikers, I am not even sure why, except to talk about their problems.They
need JT to synthesize an antidote for the inmate injected and decrypt the file
Sam got from the CIA server. JT is a multitasking man!

GABE: I can’t believe we have to catch this guy
again.

CATHERINE: We’ll get him.

GABE: Thought we already did. Thought this was
all behind us. Thought a lot of things were behind us.
