Beauty and the Beast Boss on a Close Cancellation, Changing Focus and an Epic Finale Battle

It's no secret that the renewal chances for Beauty and the Beast were slim, so when executive producer Brad Kern sat down to write the Season 2 finale he knew the most important thing was to make a satisfying ending for the loyal fans.

"We designed it as a possible series finale and frankly, we saved up a lot of money to be able to make it big and epic in case it was the end," Kern tells TVGuide.com. "We felt we owed the loyal audience a special ending, but we also put in the elements that would allow us to build off of if it if we were lucky enough to get Season 3."

Exclusive Beauty and the Beast Video: Cat and Vincent Are Back (Working) Together

Beauty and the Beast's Catherine was given an ultimatum, but it seems she won't stay away from Vincent very long.

At the end of last week's episode, Gabe (Sendhil Ramamurthy) told Cat (Kristin Kreuk) that if their relationship was going to work, she'd have to cut Vincent (Jay Ryan) from her life — even as a friend. But they have an even bigger problem on their hands with Sam (Tom Everett Scott), who's on the hunt to find other people from Gabe's orphanage and inject them with the J.T.'s beast serum.
