Will Vincent (Jay Ryan) be a free man? Will Catherine (Kristin Kreuk) try to save him? Will they finally be able to live happily ever after when Beauty and the Beast returns for the second half of Season 2? So many questions — read on for your answers!
‘Beauty And The Beast’ Returns With All New Episodes
Beauty and the Beast left viewers with the ultimate cliffhanger — just when Catherine and Vincent were on their way to a happy ending, Vincent was taking away by the police! For murder!
In true Catherine form, when the show returns to The CW (Monday, June 2, 9/8c), she runs to her man’s rescue.
“Catherine goes into classic Catherine mode where, from the last moment you saw her, she takes action immediately,” Kristin tells TVGuide. “She doesn’t even bother getting changed out of her pajamas and she just goes to deal with the situation.”
Talk about a committed lady! But will she be able to save him?
“She’s coming from a very emotional place so I don’t think she’s thinking the most logically or is coming up with the best solutions to problems, but she’s doing everything in her power to make this end,” she adds.
Kristin Kreuk Teases Catherine & Vincent’s Relationship — ‘I’m Happy For Them’
Thankfully, it’s safe to assume Vincent will be released, as Kristin admits that the couple is “romantic” together and they “love” each other.
“I think they value each other more now and they both realize how they’ve messed things up and I think they will still fight for it,” the star reveals. “It’s a different dynamic because they’re working together and it’s romantic, but they are also a funny couple. We saw it a little in the [last] episode where they bicker a lot and are pseudo fighting, but love each other. We have a lot of that in the last little stretch.”
Catherine definitely proves her love for Vincent, but the actress admits that earlier in the season, she crossed the line. Now, she’s in a better place for both of them.
“She was giving up her identity for him versus now I feel like she’s doing everything in her power to make sure his life is preserved…In the beginning, it was coming from weakness and in the end, it’s coming from strength.”
We’re so excited that Vincent and Catherine are working toward happily after, and so are the fans! “[Our fans] were so happy and I’m happy for them,” Kristin says.
Beauty and the Beast returns on Monday, June 2 (9/8c) to the CW.
