We promised you that there were going to be some major shockers on “Beauty and the Beast” Monday night, and we’re now finally getting a chance to talk about them. In the end the truth is that moving forward, the show is not going to be the same.
First of all, Tori is dead. Did you see that coming? You may have at some point, but to see her go so soon after she first appeared was a shock. Her death means that we are going to see Vincent completely lost and struggling with his feelings. Did he ever really treat her right? Hardly. While Tori was not a perfect person by any means, she was loyal to him and wanted to make him proud; instead, he was too hung up on Catherine to really give her what she wanted or needed. Her death is especially sad since she was trying to do the right thing: Save J.T. after he was kidnapped a little earlier in the episode.
J.T. was freed from his captors … which may have not been his true captors at all. In yet another twist, we learned that the person really looking to replicate a certain strand is still out there. Therefore, really all this episode taught us was the extent to which the other side wants to win this fight.
Now, we turn to probably the best moment of the whole thing (at least to us): Getting to see Vincent finally learn the truth about what happened with himself being made into the man he is. Austin Basis and Jay Ryan were both great in this episode; as a matter of fact, we talked with Austin in a phone interview a little earlier today, and we are going to have the full post-mortem of that up tomorrow, so be sure to come back to see what he had to say. Grade: B+.
