Yay!!! The thread is open!!! Okay, so before I go into detail about the episode, I want to express my displeasure with this Valex S/L. I begged friends since December to watch this show. Begged & begged. Before the episode was over I started getting text messages that they won't be coming back for episode 11.
My mom who watched the episode with me started playing Sodoku before the episode was halfway through. She just said "This isn't a good episode." She was the one who turned me onto the show!
Then at the end my mom had this, "That's it?" face. (Though she didn't think Vincent was that big of a jerk, which I completely disagree with.)
I told my mom that the fiancee S/L was for the next 3 episodes and she said, "This is a show killer."
My mom is the most optimistic TV watcher on the planet!! No joke. She is always like "Oh no. Was that cancelled? How did that happen?" This is the first time I've ever heard her say that a show may actually be one-and-done and I felt like I was going to throw up.
And, truthfully, if I wasn't worried about the ratings (which the average fan isn't), I wouldn't be tuning in for the next 2 episodes.
As for the Alex character - hate her even more than I thought I would. She's whiny and lame.
Best character of the episode? Evan! How the heck did this happen? But I'm totally in love with Evan right now. And I've always found his character a little annoying...
Regarding, VinCat, I'm going to need some time to process this episode and I need to get back to studying but... WTF.
My mom said Vincent didn't really bug her. Vincent completely bugged me. He came across as a guy who wanted to have his cake and eat it too.
And at the end of the episode I was like "WHOA-WHOA, they're actually going to blame this on Cat?! Um, no."
Cat was all over you in the hospital, Vincent. Or do we so quickly forget? Sorry that she's not all happy you spent the entire episode lying to her and that she has enough self-esteem to doubt whether it's good to get with a jerk like you.
Vincent, you're no longer my fave character.
Evan...Even though I don't want to see you with Cat, you just became my fave character.
Cat...If you had pushed Vincent out the window at the end of the episode, you would've been my fave character, but I understand that you were injured. (Even though no one else on the show was like "Oh Cat, are you okay?" other than Evan!!! Seriously, a nurse & a doctor weren't like, "You shouldn't be out of bed!")
Heather...or, rather, the actress playing Heather, great emotion at the beginning of the episode!
Tess...sorry you didn't have more to do in this episode. Though they never seem to give you anything to do.
JT...sorry the majority of your funny lines were spoiled in spoilers. But I like you better than Vincent for now, though that doesn't mean much. Why am I sorta disliking you? Because for someone who is supposed to be helping a guy in hiding...you sure gave away TMI to Cat in one phone call.
Alex...You are an example of a poorly written female character. The fact that Vincent would be attracted to such a whiney, needy person makes Vincent less attractive. That's right. You just made Jay Ryan somehow less attractive. Congrats. (I have never seen this actress before, so I will not blame her for the performance. I will instead blame the writers and the director as I think it really was just how the character was written and how the actress was directed to act.)

I liked the Alex storyline...I like that Vincent is the kind of man who needs to have some closure about that part of his life. I like that He is still able to have feelings for her after all this time. It says to be his relationships were not very flighty. That gives me hope for the future of Catcent.
I agree with Vincent that Cat needs to decide why they aren't moving forward. I really think he's ready now....after he and Alex get their stuff straightened out...I think Vincent is ready to be with Cat... BUT id Cat ready to trust someone that much...for all the talk on the show about Vincent's trust issues I think Cat's are worse.,
Anyway, I loved the addition of Alex to the canvas....she'll serve a wonderful job if all she does is make Vincent smile a few times...cause we don't see that gorgeous smile nearly enough for me.
like what the hell she is literally offering herself naked to the guy!!!! what the hell and then gets him in with the police!!!! also what the hell and then cat is left to herself to try to cover for him and to deal with the shrink! this just went from my nightmares coming true to a world where the writers are eating my heart and i am in some kind of a coma and cant do anything just watch and slowly and painfully die!!!!! when will the torture end!
oh and i sooooo love evan right now! max did a superb job on this episode! and to think that evan is in a morgue when he is a surgeon! a freaking surgeon! lucky cat she is being "watched over" by doctors.....
I was in the city during the first half hour of the episode, so I missed the beginning, but I caught the last 27 minutes or so and I must say that when Vincent kissed his ex my whole family went, "Ohhhhhh!" Then we were getting quiet and Catherine saw it and we started all over again. Also, my Vincat hopes are crushed, gah.

it is a literally scream and teared up out of pure frustration! oh and i almost punched and/or threw my tv out of anger of vincent and alex! but wanted to hug cat for her breaking heart and evan for surprisingly being the most charming character of the night!
Hey Fire and Ice, I can't agree with you more. I am now extremely worried about the fate of our beloved show. They did turn Vince(nt) into a jerk, and then blamed their lack of progress on Cat. Um, hello, hospital? She was completely and utterly smitten....
I'm just going to be a broken record and keep saying I HATE THIS F'ING STORYLINE and although I'm glad the show is back, I did not like this episode. This storyline with the EX makes absolutely no sense to me. At the end of the Ep Vincent was talking about "watching her for 9 years, and knowing her pattern of going out with Bad Boys that she doesn't have to get close to or serious with." Um, hello, so how many times in those 9 years did you check in on Alex to make sure she was ok? based on they way it went, it would appear that number would be ZERO. So WTF? And I agree that Alex's character is needy and whiney. Yet within minutes of rediscovering her, you have a lip lock with her, despite being scared <edited>less, what - the previous day, that Catherine was going to die!!! Yet you've never even given Cat a peck on the goddamn cheek!
I really think that they needed to somehow ADDRESS that kiss. At least have Vincent fess up that maybe they haven't kissed b/c Cat knows about the beast and Alex doesn't so he doesn't have any fears there.... but no, they just left it hanging with no acknowledgement that it even happened!!! Um, hello, GF? At least call the MoFo out on it. Holy crap!
And so no one gets me wrong, this has nothing to do with BR - the actress is beautiful. I would feel the same way about the character regardless of who they got to play the part.
OK ... have calmed down and had time to process what I was seeing ... and really have nothing good to say ... Alex was too needy and clingy. It has been ten years, honey. Get over it. Vincent casting doe eyes at his ex made me shudder and then showing up at Cats as if all is well only to cast doubt on her feelings for him made my head explode! ... and don't get me started on the teaser ... yuck ... Bright spot? ... Evan

So I just started to watch the episode. I have to say that Evan did a fantastic job at saving Cat's life. She had a pneumothorax (collapse lung) and he inserted a "tube" to re-expand her lung. MB did a great job.
alwayscrazedbatbfan: Food for Beastie Thought and Consumption---At what moment did you KNOW that VINCAT were meant to be? Was it a particular line or scene? Did they fall for one another at the same time? WAS it fate or choice?

alwayscrazedbatbfan: Oh, but that MOMENT on Vincent's bed when he tends to her wounds. And then when he tells his story, and she touches his face JUST so sad and feeling his pain. The Pilot was just MADE for those special VinCat Moments!

alwayscrazedbatbfan: Would LOVE to have more Beasties involved in the rewatches. You really DO get so much more out of the episodes when knowing where the series is going to go. There is SO MUCH I MISSED in 2012 when it first came on!

alwayscrazedbatbfan: Hey, DVD box set of the series being released!! Anyone know what is specifically contained in the box set as far as extras???

AlisongladaboutSeason4: I'm sorry to say that the complete lack of info about the special features on the Complete Series Box set leads me to believe that there will be NO new content, just a repeat of the special features on the individual series box sets. Hope I'm wrong though!
