CATHERINE: Talk about what makes you feel calm. Is it… the sound of the
ocean, a sunset, a special gem? Just tell me where it is in your mind. Is it on
a tropical island? A houseboat? A dungeon?
VINCENT: MY BLISS IS NOT IN A DUNGEON. And even if i told someone
where it was, it’s not like they could get it for me.
not actually gonna bring you your bliss, dumb-ass.
VINCENT: They could get in a lot of trouble.
Yeah, but you could get in even more trouble if you don’t stay calm, which
isn’t easy to do in here.
Catherine approaches Vincent and starts talking in “code” about the gem.
Cat barges in at exactly right moment
she knows that Vincent needs her and she knows that she can help him.💕 In that scene, when Vincent first
sees her, he is speechless. I think it dawned on him even more how much he
needs her and how much they both love each other💓. It probably dawns on him that again Catherine is willing
to sacrifice EVERYTHING for him and for their love and he feels responsible.
Hence his refusal initially to give away the location of the gem. The
Catherine/Vincent police-cell gem- visualisation interaction was brilliantly
funny and moving at the same time💞. I found Catherine in her uniform adorable
and funny and it was funny and lovely too that they have their own code and can
understand each other that easily. “My bliss is not in a dungeon” that line
was delivered in a fantastic way! 👏
Cat finds her way back to Vincent just in time as Vincent started to freak
out just as they were ready to take his blood. She tells them she was sent
because she is experienced in dealing with this kind of situation, a “visualization
expert”. And… they actually believe her and let her sit with him as they draw
his blood. She reassures Vincent by intercepting the saliva and blood tests by
saying she’ll take them to the lab.

Beast is the New Black is
the 17th episode of the Second Season, and the 39th episode overall.
After Vincent and
Catherine finally seemed to have put the worst behind them, they realize that
it was only the calm before the storm. Sherri Cooper and Jennifer Levin managed
to cram a whole lot of plot into 42 minutes, with a nice blend of humor, pathos
and intrigue, and most importantly, A LOT of wonderfully sexy, funny, romantic,
heartbreaking VinCat moments 😍🔥. The episode also made good use of JT and Tess
that are even starting to grow as a
couple, maybe because Tess seems to have softened up a bit in the way she
interacts with him. I love that everyone, particularly Catherine, immediately
assumed Gabe was responsible for Vincent’s arrest 😡, indicating that months and
months of trying to “redeem” himself were all for naught. I’m just
glad his true nature is continuing to surface and expect Catherine to twig onto the fact that he is still EVIL
and revoke his Scooby Gang membership any minute now. Vincent gets the quirky
idea to have slow dance with Catherine in the bath tub with all clothes on 🚿💞,
which sounds ridiculous and not as romantic as it ends up being. It’s the
wonderful sexual and romantic chemistry between JR and KK that make even a
cheesy type shower scene seem like the
most romantic thing ever. 💋💋🎼 This tv show
struck gold with these two actors! “Beast is the New Black” really sheds light on
Catherine. She has been more herself in this episode than she has been in any
other episode of Season 2. There is one main reason because of that: her
Vincent has returned to being Number One in her life. These two belong
together. Tess says it so well, they are not a fragile newbie couple, they are
epic. This episode had it all: intrigue, suspense, a long overdue hug between
JT and Cat and lots and lots of epic Vincat romance, a dance in the
shower, we wondering about that 4 time
with the handcuffs and Catherine is Vincent’s true gem, the one who keeps him
human and I will never get tired of the beating of her heart alerting him when
she is near.The episode ends when we see Catherine, alone in her apartment,
suddenly and violently attacked and captured with a bag over her head.❗⁉
Cat finds Vincent on the roof, their roof. It is a glorious scene. Vincent
gives Cat a rose and Catherine smile a way she hasn’t smiled in a very long
time, with relief and happiness (her crinkled nose smile). Only Vincent has
that effect on her and as the snow falls on the skyline of New York City,
Vincent and Cat declare their love, Vincent first. Last season, when Vincent
said, “I am so in love with you, “ it was perfect! However, compared to this
time, I feel like he was saying it out of desperation. He fell in love with her
because she gave him hope. But when S2 started, Vincent practically didn’t even
know Catherine, and slowly, he has learned to love her all over again. The way
he said “I love you, Catherine,” was gentle and sweet. How they look at each
other….. HOW LONG HAVE WE WAITED FOR
Cat is done with Gabe,
finally! Now the hard work was over. The wonderful song
“GUIDING LIGHT” by FOY VANCE (which was used also in the end of ep
1×21"Date Night”) starts playing in the background and really fitting
for the following VinCat scene.
They are rejoined by Gabe to wrap up the case. Gabe’s not sure whether
he’ll be able to build a case, but he’s pretty sure that the subject of beasts
won’t come up in any of the legal proceedings (due to so many parties trying to
protect their own interests).
I noticed Caterine face was glowing and her eyes were shining. She finally
understood going forward is not necessarily throwing away everthing important
in her life but also learning to think in a different way. Facing herself, her
past mistakes and deciding to do it better next time. She doesn’t want to be in
a loveless reationship anymore but wants to feel again. And the only man she
has feelings for and LOVES is Vincent. When Vincent leaves, he doesn’t need
words…He just knows. Her inability to deny what she really wanted was cannily
reflected in Vincent’s knowing gaze upon departing. That smile says everything.The final glances
between Catherine and Vincent were priceless.
tells him she likes the “new him better” and affirms her belief that he won’t
return to his old self either. Clearly, Vincent has changed simply through
growing as a person over his recent journey since getting his memories
back. But all of this “old Vincent,
new Vincent” talk has started to get confusing! I guess now we have a new, new Vincent. And Cat really likes him. And this man loves,
wants and deserves her wholeheartedly. He is not perfect – human and beast at
the same time – but she can accept that.
and Catherine arrive in the basement. It is beast-madness down there.The secret
organization members are falling one by one to the hands of the newly created
beast. Sam breaking the lift so no-one can leave, even them. Vincent transforms
and attacks Martin while Cat tends to the wounded and tells Gabe to pull the
fire alarm to evacuate the building. Vincent kills the other beast very quickly
and Sam breaks down.
Catherine gets very upset. Why? Vincent didn’t even beast out! Catherine
tells him that she had it “under her
control” And… I think that this was at the core of everything. Quoting
Vincent S1 ep 15: “I’ve never felt so out of control than when I do when
I’m with you.” So Catherine desire to be
“in control”, she probably never felt more “out of control” than how she did when she was with Vincent.
