Beauty and the Beauty on "On Thin Ice"

In this episode we meet two new intriguing characters and are also introduced to new sides of the characters we've grown to love...however disappointing that may have been. Spoiler: IT WAS DISAPPOINTING. If you've not yet seen the episode you can do so here. Read on for our thoughts on episode 11 "On Thin Ice". 

Sarah:
ummm get ready for some TOWEL DROPPING. It would be great if Vincent was dropping his towel

Christine:
True

Sarah:
Is she just going to MAD come onto him?
If he hasn't ...gotten any in awhile it might be nutso

Christine:
I wonder if that was Beast's first kiss in like ten years last episode. It must have been.

Sarah:
Yeah seriously! That is SO LONG

Christine:
And can we discuss how he like instantly turned into a player afterwards?

Sarah:
I know!!! He wants it all!

Christine:
Hussy

Sarah:
Vincent is torn between his new feelings for Cat and his old memories with Alex. J.T. learns that Evan is planning to propose a task force to catch the beast and must figure out how to stop him. Meanwhile, Tess investigates the mysterious skydiving death of the wife of a billionaire adventurer, while Cat remains off duty until she recovers from being shot.

Christine:
OMG Beast task force!
That's amazing

Sarah:
BTF!
Bleh on the procedural aspect of this one - Tess is working like a dog and everyone else is running around with feelings.

Christine:
We rrrready?

Sarah:
ready!
He looks like a little baby in it when he gets needled in this recap


Cat is working out in her bedroom when Vincent comes in unannounced.

Christine:
ugh Vincent. He KNOCKED

Sarah:
Barely though. What if Heather was there working out with Cat? He just cruised in.
Sidenote: she is soooooo tiny

Christine:
ugh look at this player

Sarah:
Seriously - he is playing her hard
ummm he gave Alex his cell #? Remember when NO ONE had those digits?

Christine:
And he's screening her calls!

Sarah:
Gasp they’ve had an entire childhood together!
Dawson and Joey. I had to.

Christine:
Exactly!

Vincent heads to Alex's place as requested by her. Location #1.

Sarah:
He is just looking so rough in these eps
This is the TOWEL DROP! I think its coming!

Christine:
omygaawd

Sarah:
she wants to show you her nude body

Christine:
!!!!!!!!!!
He hasn’t seen a pair in 10 years
LOL Beast's face

In other news, Cat is forced to take a leave from her duties to recover from being shot. Recovery includes regular check in's with a therapist at the hospital.

Sarah:
LOL therapist doesn't want to talk about her Beast boyfriend.
They are really throwing the word "bitch" around willy nilly - Cat is such a bitch

Christine:
Is she?

Sarah:
says her

Christine:
He's not just a shrink, he's a cool shrink

Sarah:
You can tell by the way he is sitting and using his hands and his cool gaze.

Christine:
He's about to flip the chair and sit on it backwards

As Cat leaves her therapy session, she stumbles across a suspicious looking Alex secretly slipping supplies into a duffel bag.

Sarah:
Now what is Alex up to?

Christine:
Why is Cat spying on her?

Sarah:
I can’t believe how nosy Cat is being. Its probably nothing.

Christine:
Right? She probably really wants to find something wrong with Alex

Sarah:
Big time

JT is in the warehouse lair jealous about Vincent’s two hot women. Vincent vocalises his internal struggle over choosing between the two women when Cat walks in.

Sarah:
We kind of need to know—DID VINCENT BANG ALEX? If TV has taught me anything, if he had, he’d be walking around all cloud nine with a big dopey grin on his face.

Christine:
He didn't? After a towel drop?

Sarah:
I don’t know
I mean, I don’t know how you awkwardly back out or avoid that situation

Christine:
Pretend your phone is ringing?
Do a Beast disappear?

Cat fills Vincent in on what she saw Alex doing, lets him know there is an open narcotics investigation at the hospital, reminds him that him AND Alex need to be very careful considering his situation.

Sarah:
Cat is being really bitchY! ;)

Christine:
Alex is probably stealing drugs for some good reason

Sarah:
Yeah I get the feeling she is a real do-gooder

Christine:
same

At the precinct, bored, Cat tries to get her nose into the case that Tess is working on. Unsuccessfully.

Sarah:
Yay!!! Tess!!!

Christine:
woot!

Sarah:
Woahhhh what a threat! Mani Pedis with Heather

Christine:
That IS a threat

Sarah:
Evan - babe alert
He is looking way less rough than Vince these days
Also look how tight his shirt is!



Christine:
mmhm
Evan is stepping up to the plate

Back at Alex’s apartment, Alex and Vincent go over her embarrassing forwardness from before. In trying to explain why he cannot be with her it comes out that Cat (his handler) saw Alex hiding something. Alex takes the opportunity to lead him into a weird store. Location #2.

Christine:
Beast rejected the towel! Seriously—man up, Beast

Sarah:
What did he do...run away?
How awkward
He is SUCH A PLAYER

Christine:
He's a TERRIBLE player though
Runs away from towels, doesn't kiss

Sarah:
What is in the duffel bag

Christine:
Hospital drugs

Sarah:
And WHAT IS A HANDLER

Christine:
a LIE

Sarah:
I think whatever Alex is up to its going to be boring

Christine:
Secret care unit. Typical do-gooder

Sarah:
This is not okay though - you can't steal from work
She thinks she's Robin Hood!

Christine:
Meh i'm o.k. with it

We are skipping over the case that Tess is working on and heading straight down to Evan’s lab, where a minx of a woman walks in in a trench coat.

Sarah:
WHO is this

Christine:
CLAIRE?
wtf

Sarah:
Naked trenchcoat trick?! Well. Everyone knows this move

Christine:
Noooo who IS this?

Sarah:
WHAT she isn’t even naked under that coat
What is so great about that. A big reveal to more clothing?

Christine:
At least he didn't run away!

Sarah:
True he owned that sitch


Back in the underground healthcare unit, Vincent plays Dr. with Alex like the good ‘ol days.


Sarah
ulgh VAlex is making me sick. Him as a Doc is so over the top

Christine:
Do you think Alex can deal with his Beast side?
I think no

Sarah:
No, for sure she can’t—she is too goody two shoes
I don’t like this - this little underground operation would just be aNOTHER secret that he would have to keep.

Christine:
yup definitely

Elsewhere in NYC, Evan and JT pull up to a creepy white van, head into the back and start digging into a casket.

Sarah:
What the hell are these two up to

Christine:
I'm confused, doesn't Evan recognize JT?

They are pulling evidence off a corpse in order to try and run a sample of the Beast’s DNA.

Sarah:
Apparently not
Evan just can’t let this “creature” go

Christine:
I thought he was tricking JT, but I can't tell now

Sarah:
I know
I feel like Evan is going to be on their side but I think he likes to do things by the book.
So Vincent would have to go into a cage to be watched/tested if Evan were to "fix" him.

Vincent leaves the store/illegal healthcare unit. Alex runs after him bugging and begging him to go to a 3rd location with her.

Sarah:
Alex is a bit nauseating

Christine:
"Freeze buster!" gag who IS this woman
I can't even deal

Sarah:
She is being SO AGGRESSIVE

Christine:
Well, they were engaged for 6 years and grew up together

Sarah:
wtvr

While rolling around the ice together like a couple of teenagers, Alex and Vincent get busted for breaking into a hockey rink. He calls Cat to help bail him out of the situation.

Christine:
Alex got Vince in trouble
She doesn't understand anything.

Sarah:
HAAAhahah “I think I'm getting arrested”
How does Cat get away with not telling Tess anything ever

Christine:
seriously
FUGUE

Sarah:
He is beasting out in front of a cop!
I thought the fugues were over
its no longer emotional fugueing
its anger

Christine:
uh-ohhhh

Cat has to bail on Tess and their sexy dress party in order to bail out Vincent. (It should be noted that Heather was credited for putting together their sexy outfits.)

Sarah:
Gyyyeaaah Cat you tell him

Christine:
That was bold on Cat's part.
But it WAS Alex's fault big time

Sarah:
For sure. She is so pushy. She just wants what she wants and Vincent is being selfish by not telling her what is ACTUALLY going on.

Christine:
Cat is PISSED

Sarah:
And he knows that it could get him and everyone in shit
He needs to shut it down. Cat you tell him!!!

Christine:
He's drunk with his new player status

After telling Vincent what’s what, she heads over to the firing range to fire off a few rounds...with her therapist.

Sarah:
Have you ever shot a gun?

Christine:
Nope

Sarah:
I am pretty freaked out about guns

Christine:
You?

Sarah:
Not like Cat
A bb (beebee?) gun though. Shooting at beer cans off a fence
How hillbilly!

Christine:
haha sounds fun

Sarah:
Is Cat going to hook up with her therapist?

Christine:
Maaaybe. Why else would they make him a babe?

Sarah:
Woah Cat is so overboard this ep. She is losing it

Christine:
Yeah she's going nuts!

Sarah:
She can’t handle that Beast is leaving her
Just keeps bringing it back to her boyfriend. Therapist doesn’t care!

Back at the precinct, Evan and JT are in Evan’s lab running the “creature” sample they exhumed from the corpse.

Sarah:
Evan "its my job to help uphold the law". He’s like a robot!

Christine:
Everyone is annoying this episode

Sarah:
Did JT just corrupt the sample?
Everyone is melting down

Christine:
I think so

Sarah:
Dawwwww poor Evan—sorry about your sample bud.
Claire!!!
CLAiiiiiirrreeeeee. Who is this catwoman

Christine:
Who is Claire anyway???
WHOA
it's a SETUP

Sarah:
She is helping VINCENT

Christine:
Whaaaaaat

Sarah:
WHTa the kasdfjklasfdjklasfdjkl;asfdjklasfdjklasfdjklasfdjklasfd
So they are stalking him to make sure that he doesn't get caught by the Cops?
I wonder what is involved in "moving forward" for Muirfield

Christine:
That's CRAZY

Sarah:
Can we talk about how slutty it is for Claire to be sleeping with Evan in order to have her way for Muirfield

Christine:
Totally.

Christine:
The crime was totally unnecessary this ep

Sarah:
yeah
Its always murders over a guy and there is always another woman! Also ->
Tess is the other woman
Cat is the other woman

Christine:
Very true
what do you think of this hot therapist?

Sarah:
I think I like him
So hip too—what a cool beard

Christine:
And he's right, Beast does not deserve her

Sarah:
No he doesn’t. Not at this point.

Christine:
He has nice eyes

Sarah:
Yeah he's totally cute. And he has to listen to her drone on and on about her Beast woes.
WooAAHHHh she looOOOOVVEs Vinc-enntttt

Christine:
whatever

Sarah:
So is she going to tell Vincent that?
They haven’t even kissed
I couldn't ever love anyone that I had never kissed

Christine:
Right?

At the Warehouse, Cat sits down with Vincent and let’s him know that she wants to be with him, and that she is willing to fight for him.

Sarah:
They need to just make out. He looks like he is going to cry.
hahaha sad faaaceeee
this is so awkward

Christine:
It really is

Vincent turns her down letting her know that he is going to run away with Alex to try and recapture his old life.

Sarah:
ulgh VINCENT you A HOLE

Christine:
OMG what an ASS

Sarah:
VINNY KELLER
!!!

Christine:
This is painful

Sarah:
I can’t believe him. He used her.
I just cannot believe he is doing this to her.

Christine:
WOW Beast is an ASSHOLE

Sarah:
Well Cat didn’t deserve that
You can’t run away from your problems VINCENT.
