Beauty and the Beast: Pilot Review
They enter the big old warehouse that looks mostly empty, and head towards a spot marked Office. He's in there and watching TV. It's the one spot that looks like an actual room, instead of a dark dank space. If he can turn this little space into something habitable, why not expand? Make some money? Real estate is prime in New York. Anyway, J.T. (played by Math from Life Unexpected, doing another version of his geeky character), looks perplexed by the detectives asking about Vincent. While Tess asks New Math about Keller, Catherine wanders, seemingly aware that someone is looking at her from some nebulous place in the warehouse apartment. She sees stairs and a locked gate and asks if they can take a look around. New Math politely says that he has to leave to teach a biochemistry class. As they leave, Tess makes a joke about how Catherine should sleep with New Math in order to get in without a warrant. Professional!
New Math goes upstairs to interrogate Vincent (Jay Ryan), who doesn't answer his questions about the fingerprints, but instead hands over a nine-year-old newspaper clipping about the night that Catherine's mom got killed. New Math freaks out. As you'd expect. Vincent says that a woman (socialite Ashley) was in trouble, and that he tried to help her (he didn't kill her or anything like that). And here's where we get our first good look at the Beast. He looks like a scruffy, good looking dude. Utterly terrifying. Vincent says he didn't know it was going to be Catherine's case, and he earns a lecture from New Math about how he isn't supposed to interact with people, or anything like that for fear that he'll be discovered.
Vincent complains about the vast warehouse being like a prison (maybe if they did some home improvements, it wouldn't be so bad), and New Math thinks that if it's so bad, Vincent should have continued helping with the antidote. Is the antidote to cure his hotness? Because that doesn't need to be cured. Vincent angrily replies that he's come to terms with his life in the shadows. And New Math says that if Cat lets people know that Vincent is still alive, there will be people after them and both roomies will be "dead dead."
