- Title: Beauty and the Beast – Down for the Count
- wiki: link
As Catherine (Kristin Kreuk) gets a promotion to work for Homeland Security, Tess (Nina Lisandrello) sulks over losing both her best friend and detective to the Feds and the fact that her fiance has been keeping a huge secret from her. Following the clues left at the crime scene of a dead bounty hunter, Catherine and Vincent (Jay Ryan) work their way back to the head of the local fight club who the wrongly believe may be behind the bounty on Vincent. Of course over the course of the episode Vincent will expose his secret to a crowded bar room of disreputable individuals as well as the man he helps put in jail to close out the episode. But, hey, I’m sure the guy who was running an illegal fight club won’t hold a grudge.
Subplots of the episode involve Heather (Nicole Anderson) ignoring a guy who is probably perfect for her for questionable sitcom-style reasons, J.T. (Nina Lisandrello) hiding from his fiance, and several lines of dialogue concerning Vincent’s tardiness at the hospital and the couple’s money troubles which I’m guess will play into the final few episodes of the series. The climax of “Down for the Count” comes when Catherine decides to sign-up as a blood sport fighter to find the fight club owner. She, of course, is able to take down all contenders without too much trouble (or too much training). And, yes, it’s as ridiculous as it sounds.
