Cat's B-Day Plans Are Foiled, But Is It A Bust?

Beauty and the Beast returns for Cat's birthday and another hard-to-solve case. This time around Cat's knight-in-shining-case-solving-armor won't be Vincent! But who, exactly, will it be?

Beauty and the Beast stars Jay Ryan and Kristin Kreuk

After her run-in with Silverfox from Meerfield — the agency responsible for Vincent (Jay Ryan) and the ones trying to recapture him — Cat (Kristin Kreuk) deserves a break. After all, it's her birthday!

Her plans for spending her birthday with Vincent (and, let's face it, probably JT) are cut short, though, when her sister, Heather (Nicole Gale Anderson), throws her a surprise party. Someone needs to address the ratio of surprise parties on television to real life. According to television, reality is doing it wrong. Then again, like most surprises, the party isn't a welcome idea for Cat. However, being the great(-ish) big sister that she is, Cat goes along with Heather's plans.

The party isn't so awful. The new preview, however, shows Cat having a "moment" with Evan (Max Brown). Is it just a drunken flirtation or is something brewing between the two NYPD employees? Plus, Cat's life has pretty much revolved entirely around Vincent lately, so what will this mean for him? Sure, the two seemed to have cooled off in last week's episode, but the show is still called Beauty and the Beast. Evan definitely isn't a beast.

Well, isn't that just the most romantic thing ever!

As for the case that Cat, Evan, Tess and Vincent are working on this week? Some girl disappears after her husband-to-be places their engagement announcement in the paper. Best guess: She's in the witness protection program.

But, honestly, ladies: Does anyone watch Beauty and the Beast for the cases or are we all just watching for Vincent?

At least have the decency to change the name, CW, don't try to capitalize on the hysteria of that cult gorgeous show that was aired 20+years ago, this mockery has lost the premise of "beauty on the inside", chivalry, and romance that captured the hearts of viewers in the 80's, when "Beast" is prettier than "Beauty", is it safe to say shallow rules in today's tv? what messages are you sending teens? if you don't look like a hot star, you simply don't fit on yourselves a favor, go rent the one and only BatB, even if cheesy, at least it takes you to a much better world, where justice, friendship, and love, had NOTHING to do with what you look on the outside....
