Beauty and the Beast Season 2 Review “Man or Beast?”

If you weren’t aware that this episode of Beauty and the Beast, ‘Man or Beast’, was a mid-season finale before watching, then you definitely were by the end. The first half of this second season was a bit mixed in terms of consistency and any real direction, but in the final hour they’ve pulled out a rip-roaring adventure with blackmail, murder and heartbreak – all topped off with a surprising outcome that will probably upset a lot of hard-core shippers. For me, the twists and turns just makes things more interesting.

You may have gathered from my reviews this season that my enjoyment of the show doesn’t depend very much on whether Cat and Vincent are coupled up or not. That’s why I didn’t mind how this episode went, because the initial promise of a season where they were torn apart seemed to have been avoided by their subsequent reconciliation in recent weeks. In this episode, however, the show bravely turned Vincent into a villain of sorts, and there seems no real prospect of Cat and Vincent being happy together anytime soon. There will be people on her side and people on his side, but they’re definitely not agreeing with each other right now.
