The CW’s ‘Beauty and the Beast’ closed up one mystery and opened another.
Official Episode Synopsis: Vincent (Jay Ryan) is forced to undergo a series of tests orchestrated by the mystery buyer in order to keep from being exposed. Cat (Kristin Kreuk), JT (Austin Basis) and Heather (Nicole Gale Anderson) work to exonerate Vincent. – The CW
Here are the Top 5 Takeaways from “Means to an End”…
#5 Forward Momentum Builds
Vincent took one for the team in a major way, subjecting himself to torture at the hands of Braxton (Marc Singer), in order to keep his identity a secret and learn who had contracted the “beast bounty”. As it turns out, the $10 million bounty was a hoax, concocted by Braxton. He wanted to get the goods on Vincent so he could leverage his beast powers. Not to do something evil but to stop it.
#4 Team Beast Takes Down Graydal
In an elaborate plot, aided by Heather and J.T.; Team Beast is able to take down Graydal. They even manage to get a confession that keeps the perp, Vincent and Cat had been blackmailed into stealing evidence for, from going free. Like so many times before this season, Tess (Nina Lisandrello) was dragged back into the drama when she had to arrest Cat and then set her free, when she confessed that Vincent and she had been forced into stealing the aforementioned evidence. What Cat left out was that Vincent could have easily snuck in using his beast-speed to get into the evidence room and get out without being detected. Cat willingly and foolishly put herself into a situation she did not need to be a part of. And she dragged poor Frank into it!
