While Tess, Catherine and Vincent are in the waiting room, distraught, an
alarm goes off and they think JT’s about to die but when they get to the room,
they find that he is fine. When they come in, JT smiling and greeting them with
“What’s up!? Did we win?” He’s miraculously recovered! How?
Tess arrives as JT is being wheeled away by an ambulance and taken by
paramedics to the hospital. Tess panics over having been so mean to him.
Catherine encourages her to stay strong because he needs her right now.The
performance Nina Lisandrello gave at JT’s loft was perfect. The strong,
sarcastic woman was reduced to quaking sobs at the thought of what might happen
to JT. She has been pushing JT away, and
been taking him for granted, closing herself off from being open and
affectionate with him. Now she may never be able to make up for her coldness.
JT is rushed to the hospital, in critical condition, with Tess by his side.
Tess meets with Cat in the middle of the street. Cat
is having another crisis thinking about following the advice of her dead
relative, Rebecca. She says she wonders if by making Vincent vulnerable, she’s
putting him at risk. At that point, witnessing Vincent and Cat’s devotion
throughout their struggle against Gabe, Tess makes question whether or not she also had found
“the one” in JT. So, suddenly, Tess wants a relationship like Cat
and Vincent’s??. Not only that but she confesses it at the worst possible time.
Then Cat says she’s going to lay down the blood trail.
At the Precinct, Cap.Ward gets his SWAT team ready. Ward
basically tells Tess that he is getting someone for that murder and it can
either be Gabe or Vincent, whoever they get first. He also says it all ends
tonight one way or the other.. Is this
really how justice works?
JT hacks into the surveillance system frantically looking for Vincent but ends
up finding Gabe, who is enjoying a cup of something in Chinatown waiting for Vincent to come. Tess calls Cat
and they head out.
TESS: What’s taking so long?
JT: So long? Last time we tried looking for Vincent, it took us
three months, remember?
but Cat’s freaking, all right? You know, she says if we don’t find Vincent and
stop him before he finds…
JT and Tess are still babysitting
Gabe. JT tries to prove he is edgy and shows Tess all the goodies he got from
Lizzy D’s closet for their own enjoyment. However, he discovers that Tess isn’t
all that edgy and shares his fear of strippers. Tess confesses that she was
overcompensating and assures JT that they are not sexually mismatched.
blames himself for failing to come through for his best friend and Tess gives JT a pep talk after he shares how
down he is for that. Tess tells him that at least they found where Gabe took
the body. She tells JT that Vincent and Catherine are back in town because of what
happened while in suburbia and because “you can take the girl out of the
city, but you can’t take the city out of the girl.”
a hero in everyone and “Ever After” did a great job in proving that philosophy.
JT re-discovers himself, who he is without Vincent. Thanks to Tess. She redirects
him and highlights his “powers” by telling him “you stood up to Gabe, even when he had a
gun pointed at you. It’s very Batman.”
