“Beauty and the Beast” returns to The CW with new episodes starting on Monday, January 13, and based on some of the details that we have for this first episode entitled “Don’t Die on Me,” it could be the sort of thing that drives some fans up the wall. It’s more about Cat and Gabe seemingly than Cat and Vincent, and the other woman in Vincent’s life in Tori is also going to be back to get involved in things.
Before we do too much else, let’s just start off by sharing the official synopsis released by The CW, just so we can give you a sense of some of what is coming up just around the bend:
“In order to prevent Vincent (Jay Ryan) from further injuries, Cat (Kristin Kreuk) helps protect Tori (guest star Amber Skye Noyes) when her life is threatened, revealing a new, unexpected mystery. Meanwhile, Vincent’s stubborn attempt to intervene leads to life-changing consequences, which causes Gabe (Sendhil Ramamurthy) and Cat to grow closer.”
Now, let’s ask the question that has to be the elephant in the room: With this show in danger of being canceled, are they really going to send it packing with us thinking that Gabe and Cat are somehow the end game? Personally, we mark that one as “doubtful.” What we feel that they are somewhat more likely to do is create some tension here for a few weeks (this episode is only 2×09), and then find a way to bring Vincent and Cat together a little bit later on, that way to provide some sort of closure in the event that the show ends. But, that’s just a prediction.
What do you think is going to happen the rest of the way on “Beauty and the Beast” with this complicated Gabe / Cat / Vincent / Tori love rhombus of sorts? Share your thoughts with a comment below!
