Network Blurb: Vincent barely escapes being caught by his former fiancée, Alex and must deal with the repercussions of his past. While Cat is in the hospital, she is forced to confront her feelings for Vincent. Meanwhile, J.T. gets a surprising visitor asking about old research he did on mutant DNA.
My Review: We finally learn a little bit about Vincent outside of the military and that is that he was just a good guy that was in love with a nurse named Alex. How do we learn this bit of info? When Cat was in that car accident, she was rescued by Vincent (took her out of the wreckage and then ran off) and Evan (who helped her breathe after her lungs collapsed). Evan had her taken to New York General (which does not exist) and do you know who her nurse is? Alex. Guess who popped up to check up on Cat? Vincent. Guess who sees Vincent, a man that she loved? Alex. This just screams Cat getting kicked in the shin.
Now, knowing that anyone who recognizes him gets followed by the secretive black ops people that are out to secure him, he still goes and sees Alex. It is so obvious that he still cares for Alex and this has left him torn between Cat and Alex.
The rub is… when Cat finds out the truth (via a box of pictures) about Vincent and Alex’s past, his reaction is a bit idiotic. Why? Because he has been trying to make this thing between him and Cat something that toes the line of becoming a romance and when she talks to him about his relationship with Alex, he has the audacity to scold her?
Don’t get me started, because I am the first to tell you that there is a willing and able man named Evan wanting to be Cat’s better half.
Now, this was not the only thing going on with Vincent. Via a discussion between Evan and J.T., we come to learn that Vincent is genetically evolving. Does this mean we will have our furry Vincent by series end?
Eve though I sound irritated, I liked this episode and it revolved around the soap opera-esque storyline. I just want to see Cat meet the guy that will make Vincent regret deciding to go see Alex.
