Sarah:
Quick catch up after that extremely long weekend... what happened last?

Christine:
Cat and Vincent do not like the suburbs

Sarah:
Riiiight

Christine:
And Gabe is full stop mental

Sarah:
Great! Let’s do this!

Vincent and Cat play normal in abnormal disguises and discuss their situation on their way to meeting up with Agent Knox.

Sarah:
She’s blonde!
Turn yourself inChristine:
Vincent’s disguise is HILARIOUS

Sarah:
This is the exact disguise I suggested he have

Christine:
He looks like Mario. This is too good

Sarah:
The FBI should hire them. Screw the NYPD

Christine:
As undercover spies?

Sarah:
Yeah. This moustache is insane

Christine:
Is it real?

Sarah:
100% ;)

Agent Knox lets them know that in order to put through the exoneration, Vincent needs to first turn himself in.

Christine:
Do you think he should turn himself in?

Sarah:
Yes? No? I don’t even know anymore.

Elsewhere in the city, Tess and JT shop together for Heather’s bachelorette party supplies.

Sarah:
I don’t think JT needs to be on this bachelorette shopping trip

Christine:
Penis straw shopping- JT’s fave pastime

Sarah:
Heather is just full of embarrassing cliches

Christine:
Tess is trying to get JT to be more kinky.

Sarah:
Does she need this hat though? Wouldn’t she already have one of those?
Get kinky with meTess spots Cat’s highschool friend Beth, who she has been avoiding. Beth lets them know that she is onto the “supercharged DNA Vincent Keller” story.

Sarah:
I never liked this Beth girl from the start - she is sooooo nosey

Christine:
Yeah honestly
Wtv. No one would publish that story

Tess and JT head out to let Cat and Vincent know what's up.

Sarah:
Ummm was Vincent also wearing a wig?!

Sarah:
Does he also have his own wig stand?

Christine:
Just sitting around a hostel, trying out new disguises.

Christine:
I hope he has a frosted tips wig

Sarah:
Yes!

The four come to the conclusion that Gabe is trying to expose Vincent through reporter Beth. Cat decides she needs to just go and talk Gabe out of it.

Sarah:
So Gabe is STILL pushing? He needs to chill out

Christine:
He's too far gone

Sarah:
Vincent barely ever beasts anymore so, like, no worries

Christine:
How can Cat not see he's too far gone?

Sarah:
I think she can see it. But how can she not see that this is not a healthy relationship for her and Vincent? They never get any time alone, and when they do, she doesn’t take advantage

Christine:
I've been saying that forever!

Cat heads over to Gabe’s to try and defuse the situation. Gabe tells her that not only does he want Vincent behind bars, but also wants a “genuine shot” at reconnecting with her.

Sarah:
So Gabe thinks they are just going to have a gabfest over a glass of wine?
He wants a shot with her?! Is he out of his MIND

Christine:
What a nut bar

Sarah:
He is a complete psycho

Christine:
MAYBE she would DO a shot with him. Tops.

Back at the hostel, JT and Vincent catch up over the sounds of someone else’s banging. Cat comes in and lets them know she needs to go out on a date with Gabe.

Sarah:
Who does it 4-5 times per day?

Christine:
NOT VinCat that's for sure
So JT is worried about his crazed sex life

Christine:
Just a couple of guys, too laser focused on discussing sex to have any of it.fake forgivenessVincent reluctantly agrees to Cat's plan to go out with Gabe. Cat asks everyone to just go light and easy on this case.

Christine:
LOVE Cat's dressHeathSarah:
That dress is hot and heavy, not light and easy! I want it!

Christine:
Wasted on Gabe

Cat heads out on her fake date, and sends Heather off to prep Vincent for the press conference.

Christine:
I love this

Sarah:
How is Vincent so bad at this
you suuuuck
Christine:
Yeah...he's famous from the Veteran thing...he should have practice

Sarah:
He spoke to the people in a robe!

Vincent freaks out and decides to “trail” Cat on her date. JT manages to keep him down with a tranq gun.

Christine:
Ahhhh good ‘ol tranq gun!

Sarah:
But what if Gabe is going to kidnap Cat

Christine:
He just wants a li’l makeout

Sarah:
OMG HAHAHHAHAHA did you see that race to the computer?! That rascal

Sarah:
Worst date

Christine:
So awkward

Sarah:
Gabe is the fucking worst

Christine:
He killed someone to protect himself?

Sarah:

He killed his own mother

Christine:
He's right though, Vincent does hurt Cat a lot

Sarah:
He also saves her life - a LOT
And Gabe is seriously a very different beast than Vincent

Christine:
After putting her life in danger!

She puts her own life in danger and he digs her out. Just no:

Christine:
Wooops

Sarah:
Vincent needs to sense this Gabe attack - come on Vincent

Christine:
I actually feel kinda bad for Gabe...but I know I shouldn’t

Sarah:
Oh here we go AGAIN - Gabe apologist

Christine:

Sarah:

The next day, Vincent is at the press conference, turning himself in.


Christine:
"Can u comment on rumours your DNA has been altered?" Get that girl outta here

Sarah:

Heather calls Cat to let her know that JT freaked out over a male stripper and smashed the blue party cake.

Christine:
Just a regular day in the life of JT.

Sarah:
So Cat is gonna figure this out because of the cake colour?

Christine:
That’s a little wishy washy

Sarah:
Totally

When Beth pipes up at the press conference re: modified DNA, Cat and Vincent realize that Gabe did NOT call off Beth. They come clean to Agent Knox about BEASTS.

Christine:
"Oh btdubs, I'm a super soldier"

Sarah:
“Got the ‘ol modified DNA - sorry we didn’t tell you sooner”

Christine:
"but no big"

Sarah:
Cat is just always chasing chasing chasing around a plan to save everyone's ass

Agent Knox agrees to continue on with the plan and to get Vincent into a solitary cell. Vincent says cool cool, as long as Cat stays away from Gabe.

Christine:
I guess that go kart date won't happen!

Sarah:
No bumper cars - sooooorryyybeyond angerVincent gets removed from his cell for “testing”. Cat sets about throwing Heather her bachelorette party wherein Cat is decidedly having no fun or any part of it.

Sarah:
Oh god this bachelorette

Christine:
Heather just wants to have fun
bride to beSarah:
Cat is never able to have fun! CHILL OUT GIRL
VDChristine:
Right?!

Tess lets it slip to Beth that Gabe had Heather kidnapped, but Heather is too traumatized to corroborate the story.

Christine:
"Heather's been busy party planning."

Sarah:
Been too busy to think about pressing kidnapping charges

Christine:
Why can't these btchz just let Heather have a fun party?

After receiving news that Vincent is missing from his cell, Cat flees, giving not one F about FRANZ. She heads to Gabe's to try and get to the bottom of who took Vincent from solitary.
See ya Franz
Christine:
WOOOOO FRANZ! Now we’re talkin.

Sarah:
Yeah! Stripppperrrrrrrrrr I want to see a stripper show!

Christine:

While Tess tries to talk Heather out of the bathroom, Beth presses her further for details regarding her kidnapping.

Sarah:
I want him to go suuuuuuper fast on the treadmill - that would be hilarious

Christine:
But what the hell is going on? Where is this testing place?

When Cat goes to talk to Gabe, he freaks out and tries to convince her that she is there to be with him.


Christine:
"I am your safe haven" yuuuck

Sarah:
Gross. So what now, is he gonna kill her because it's not true?
You should be thanking meChristine:
He's beasting out in a real “I don’t care if I attack a woman”-human kind of way.

When Gabe goes on the attack, Cat retaliates and kicks his ass.

Christine:
Is he faking it?

Sarah:

Christine:
So, who are these people?

Sarah:
No idea

When Vincent shows up at Gabe’s, he finds Cat in there trying to resuscitate a dead Gabe.

Christine:
I like how Cat just beat Gabe to death

Sarah:
“I came here to kill him” - Vincent
"He still dead?" - JT

Christine:
It’s all so nonchalant #JTlife

Sarah:
Hahah Dr. Vincent is in shock. Cat beasted out too!

Vincent and Cat go over the events of the evening. Knox calls and lets them know that whoever signed Vincent out of prison helped free him from all of the charges.

Sarah:
See? V saves her. She saves him. Can’t save Cat from Cat though

Christine:
Oh how nice

Sarah:
