The cat, err, beast is out of the bag on Beauty and the Beast.
Just when Catherine (Kristin Kreuk) and her love Vincent (Jay Ryan) had finally devised a plan to throw off the NYPD, Tess (Nina Lisandrello) spotted Vincent on his way out of the burning warehouse and shot him. Immediately after, Catherine ran in and threw herself at the injured Vincent and pleaded with Tess not to fire again. On Thursday's episode (9/8c, The CW), will Tess reveal what she saw to her bosses? And will the heightened search for the vigilante cause the couple — who finally hooked up! — to split apart?
Last week ended with Tess shooting Vincent and with Catherine revealing her secret. Where does it pick up?
Jay Ryan: Tess' initial instinct is to run and get the hell out of there! Catherine almost straightaway professes her love for Vincent, but then Vincent pleads with Catherine that he will be fine and Catherine needs to go after Tess. He knows if Tess gets out of that tunnel system and gets to Joe and the NYPD, then it's over; there's no way out. So Catherine needs to tell her calmly what's going on and try to gain some humanity out of her friend and then give her some time to work out what the next plan is going to be.
Will Vincent try to reason with Tess?
Ryan: I'm excited for people to see the way Vincent and Tess sniff each other out and the way they communicate because they're both very similar.
Where are Vincent and J.T. (Austin Basis) going to live now that their place blew up?
Ryan: I wanted to live in the sewer, but I don't think they have a place yet so the sewers, for now, are their hideout
Viewers now know that Gabe (Sendhil Ramamurthy) is shady. Will Vincent and Catherine realize this?
Ryan: Vincent has this feeling that he can't put his finger on, and it's something he's never gone through, the way he reacts to this man. This throws Vincent off and he questions whether his abilities are off because Catherine trusts Gabe and thinks he's loyal and that he has a lot he can bring to this situation to help them. So that's where Vincent and Catherine might rub against each other in the wrong way instead of rubbing each other in the right way.
Vincent and Catherine finally got together! Will they remain happy or is it all downhill from here?
Ryan: I think they're in a great place at the moment and emotionally I think they'll stay there. But these are two people from opposing worlds and the forces against them are pretty strong. There are going to be bumps in the relationships as they try to make it work within the world they live in.
The show has yet to be renewed. Anything you want to say to the passionate fans?
Ryan: I'm just in awe of their dedication to the show and keep roaring!
Beauty and the Beast airs Thursdays at 9/8c on The CW.
