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."
Beauty and the Beast's Cat and Vincent may be in hideout, but they're desperately trying to be normal — or at least one of them is.
In the exclusive clip from Monday's episode below, Vincent (Jay Ryan) catches Catherine (Kristin Kreuk) perusing the New York City crime reports when she's supposed to be acting like someone new.

Unfortunately, the casualties are not just redshirts. In fact, one character's fate is so jaw-dropping that you'll spend the rest of the episode wondering if what you just watched was a dream. It's not, which clearly means all bets are off in this final season.
