Episode 213: “Till Death” [photos: Ben Mark Holzberg/CW] In my last write-up for Beauty & The Beast, I mentioned that chess pieces are on the move, and it seems things continue along the same lines in episode 13, “Till Death.” And if the title of episode 14 (“Redemption”) tells us anything, it’ll be more of […]

BEAUTY AND THE BEAST: Hostage to Misfortune

February 2, 2014


Episode 211: “Held Hostage” [photos: Ben Mark Holzberg/CW] I have a confession to make. Leading up to “Held Hostage,” episode 211 of Beauty & The Beast, I was kinda done.

November 25, 2013


Episode 207: “Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner?” [photos: Sven Frenzel/CW] I’ve been complaining about Cat and Vincent not getting enough quality one-on-one time in Beauty & The Beast, and episode seven delivers up the one-on-one time, if not the quality.  Cat and Vincent have a short make-out session in her bedroom, and while they both […]
