Vincent and JT prematurely imprison Sam and locks
him up in the beast cage in the tunnels without any real evidence to hold him
there. Sam reminds them that he is trying to avenge his son [still not clear
from whom] and tells Vincent that he’s
partially responsible for Tory’s death.
Vincent and JT are searching for Sam, by showing his picture to passerby, on the block they saw him on in the surveillance footage. JT tells Vincent he should use his beast senses to find him since this isn’t working. Although Vincent initially resists to using his beast sense to find Sam, JT sways him with advice that Vincent can’t completely deny his other half.
Vincent is determined to keep his beast side down, because
it is what he thinks will win Catherine back to his side. He wants to find Sam
and bring him to justice, so he can put beasts behind him and prove to Cat he
is worthy of her love, once and for all.
JT: “Wait, why don’t you just sense him?”
VINCENT: “Because the man is very good at covering his tracks. At least he was
last time anyway. Besides, come on. I’ve gotta stop using that part of myself,
JT: “Don’t you think you’ve proven you can control your beastly
instincts by now?”
VINCENT: “No. No. I haven’t. At least not to Catherine. Not
yet. Come on, man, you know that I want her back, okay? But after everything
that I’ve put her through, if I want any chance at it, I-I gotta earn her trust
back, all right. “
Vincent apologizes for getting involved Dr. Markus, who is nice enough to pretend Jacob’s recovery is a
“medical miracle” and tells Vincent he can consider himself “on the road to redemption”
for whatever it is he is trying to atone.
So Vincent goes to the hospital, steals some scrubs, sneaks into Jacob’s
room and prepares to inject the mystery substance into the quarantined patient.
Just then, his former mentor Dr. Marcus bursts in and threatens to call
security. Vincent pleads with Dr.Marcus to trust him and manages to convince
the good doctor to allow him to inject his patient with the unidentified substance….. Jacob was clearly dying so… why not? Dr. Marcus tells Vincent this had better
Vincent tells JT that: “The more human I feel, the more human I am. The
less beast the better.” He hesitates when he fights the newly-minted beast,
Jacob Sutter (Noah Danby), because he recognizes that Jacob is still a man, and
he is unwilling to kill him in cold blood. Vincent also chooses to fight to
save the life of another Jacob Sutter (Patrick Romango), who is dying from the
beast serum experiment. So, with the antidote concocted by JT (though he
doesn’t know if it works), Vincent goes to the hospital.
At the Gentlemen’s Club,Vincent has taken some of the quarantined man’s
blood to JT who is not amused by the theft of sick people’s blood. Vincent
admits that this experience is making his miss being a doctor and JT
confirms that the sick Jacob was injected with the serum he made. Vincent urges
JT to find an antidote for the dying Jacob. JT thinks it might be possible
because he never turned into a beast.
