‘Beauty and the Beast’ Episode Guide (June 30): Vincent and Cat Forced Into Hiding

“It’s a Wonderful Beast” (06/30/16) – Vincent (Jay Ryan) and Cat (Kristin Kreuk) realize they have to go into hiding now that someone is out to kill Vincent. Vincent wonders if Cat would have been better off without him and gets a glimpse into exactly what her life could have been.

“It’s a Wonderful Beast” was directed by Stuart Gillard and written by Melissa Glenn.

Catherine “Cat” Chandler (Kristin Kreuk, “Smallville,” “Chuck”) is a smart, no-nonsense detective, spurred to action after hired killers murdered her mother – and would have murdered Cat, too – if something, some beast, hadn’t stopped them.

Ten years later, a case brought Cat to Vincent Keller (Jay Ryan, “Top of the Lake,” “Terra Nova”), a supposedly deceased soldier living off the grid with the help of his loyal childhood friend and scientist, J.T. Forbes (Austin Basis, “Life Unexpected”). Cat was shocked to discover that her mother was involved in an experiment to make super-soldiers, and when the experiment went wrong, the soldiers, including Vincent, were turned into uncontrollable beasts.

Vincent managed to escape the experiment alive, but then was hunted by Muirfield, the organization that sent the gunmen after Cat’s mother. Vincent had been tracking them, which led him to be in the right place to save Cat on that terrible night ten years ago. Cat and Vincent were drawn to one another and an epic love began.

Muirfield reappeared and infiltrated Cat’s life, costing her some of her closest relationships. She lied to her own sister, Heather (Nicole Gale Anderson, “Ravenswood”), and to her best friend and partner, Detective Tess Vargas (Nina Lisandrello, “Nurse Jackie”), in order to protect them. When police cases involving “beast” elements went unsolved, Assistant District Attorney Gabriel Lowan (Sendhil Ramamurthy, “Covert Affairs,” “Heroes”) was assigned to track down this mysterious “vigilante.”

“Beauty and the Beast” is produced by CBS Television Studios in association with Take 5 Productions/Whizbang Films with executive producers Brad Kern (“Charmed”), Bill Haber (“Rizzoli & Isles,” “Thurgood”), Paul J. Witt (“A Better Life”) & Tony Thomas (“A Better Life”), Ron Koslow (“Moonlight”), Frank Siracusa (“The Yard”) and John Weber (“The Borgias”), with Sherri Cooper (“Brothers and Sisters”) & Jennifer Levin (“Without A Trace,” “Felicity”) as consultants.
