Beauty and the Beast (2012) s02e15 Episode Script

Catch Me if You Can

Previously on Beauty & the Beast I can't keep juggling this line between beast and man.
It's just, it's too confusing.
Come on, I gotta choose one or the other, especially if I ever hope to get Catherine back.
I believe that your relationship with Vincent is getting in the way of ours.
No, it's not true.
No? You sure about that? Be honest.
Feels like there are three of us in this relationship and sooner or later, that is gonna have to be resolved, Catherine.
For six years, I've been trying to get revenge for my son.
I'm not going to stop now.
It won't bring him back.
At least the people who did this to him will finally pay.
Apparently, there's a certain gene, makes them predisposed to becoming beasts.
That's how they chose the kids for the orphanage they all have that gene.
And now Sam's trying to create another one.
Xavier Wright? Yeah.
From the orphanage? Ah, ah, ah, ah Ah, ah, ah, ah Made a life and after you Everything else disappeared How the hell are you here Since all these years passed? Watched you drown from far away Wished that I could take your place Dude what are you still doing here? Looking for Sam.
Go back to bed.
It's five in the morning.
What's wrong with your place? Well, I don't have facial recognition software, or gummy worms.
Yep, that's how I lure the ladies.
Now, easy now Wait, you're tapped into the police surveillance system? Isn't that how you found me last time? Yeah, but it's against the law.
I only got away with it before because Gabe deputized me.
Did he give you a plastic badge and a decoder ring, too? I-I'm serious.
I-I could get caught.
If I get caught-- JT, look, the point is we have to find Sam, okay, before he turns anyone else into a beast, right? All right.
Watch me fall from far away Wait, why don't you just sense him? Because the man is very good at covering his tracks.
At least he was last time anyway.
Besides, come on.
I've gotta stop using that part of myself, remember? Don't you think you've proven you can control your beastly instincts by now? No.
I haven't.
At least not to Catherine.
Not yet.
Come on, man, you know that I want her back, okay? But after everything that I've put her through, if I want any chance at it, I-I gotta earn her trust back, all right.
And to do that, I have to show her that I am more man than beast, so she never, ever has to worry that it'll ever be the other way around.
How will you know when you're there? How will she know? I don't know.
I just I gotta keep trying, man, that's all I can do.
In the meantime, I gotta hunt Sam the human way.
So make that coffee strong, okay? What if I could clean your slate Play the savior, take the blame? We both got a lot of pain Gotcha.
Now Now.
Can I get another shot? Yeah, sure.
Four, really? Gabe kept you up last night? No, Vincent did.
It was a dream.
Oh wait, you were dreaming about Vincent while you were sleeping with Gabe? Calm down, it's not what you think.
It was more of a nightmare, actually.
I killed Vincent.
You killed him? It was an accident.
I went over to tell him to stay away.
We got in a fight.
He hit his head It just seemed so real.
Did you tell Gabe about it? Right.
He has enough issues with Vincent and me without knowing that I'm dreaming about him.
He'd probably be happy to hear you killed him though.
Oh, what? This is all your dad's fault anyway, for putting in your head that you're some kind of beast hunter or something.
Thank you, Dr.
Oh, what, you think there's more to it? I don't think that I secretly want to kill Vincent, if that's what you're asking.
But it's hard moving on with Gabe, when Vincent's still lurking about, even in my subconscious.
So what are you going to do? I'm gonna do everything I can to catch Sam.
What does Sam have to do with it? Well, we're all after him, right? Especially Vincent, now that Sam's making another beast.
Which means, like it or not, we're both working on the same case.
Ah, so the sooner you can put Sam away-- The sooner I can focus on Gabe.
Less beast equals less Vincent.
Have you seen this guy around here? No.
Any luck? No.
No one's seen him.
Are you sure this is the right block? Yeah.
14th and Broadway.
That's the surveillance camera we saw Sam on 20 minutes ago.
Well, he's gone.
You know, at this rate, we're never going to find him.
There is a way.
I told you, I-I am not doing it.
You wanna find him, don't you? Yeah.
I wanna find him the right way.
But the right way ain't working.
JT, no, I am not tracking him, okay? I can't.
You really wanna impress Cat? Catch her bad guy for her.
And besides, you can't completely deny your other half, Vincent.
That's you, too.
Come on, one little sniff.
It's not gonna, you know, knock you off the beast wagon.
I was wondering where you went.
I should have left you a note.
I met Tess for coffee and I didn't want to wake you.
No worries, you don't owe me an explanation.
I just missed seeing you when I woke up.
Aw Want some breakfast? No.
I want Sam.
Tess is trying to find him by tracking down which Muirfield orphan he's after next.
Right, because they are predisposed to becoming beasts.
And, assuming we find him, I'm trying to build a case to arrest and hold him on.
Well, after everything he's done, that shouldn't be hard.
Harder than you think.
Sam's not just slippery in person, he covered his legal tracks, too.
He has gotten away with murder, but there's still no direct evidence against him.
Hang on, he-he tranqed you, and kidnapped you.
You could testify.
To what? That he tried to inject me with a beast serum? He knows I won't say that in court.
He's smart.
Smarter than you? No.
And here's why: we can't nail him with anything beast-related, but he took over Tony Barnes' identity, right? He bought lab equipment over the years, lofts, lots of stuff.
And all in Barnes' name, which means, I should be able to bust Sam for identity theft, at least.
Then, hopefully I can build a case against him for Barnes' murder.
The DA's office must be very happy to have you back.
It's good to be back.
And we make a good team.
You bust 'em, I put 'em away.
Well, the sooner we put Sam away, the better.
It would be nice to be done with beasts, wouldn't it? Once and for all.
Too obvious? A little.
I heard you last night.
About your concerns about Vincent being in my life, in our lives.
And? And you're right I need to do something about it.
And getting Sam, getting past beasts that'll help us.
So you don't have to knock anymore.
Relax, it's just a key.
It's not a ring.
Hey, JT.
Can I call you back? What do you mean, Vincent has Sam? Guess I got cocky.
Dropped my guard.
You're a good tracker, I'll give you that.
But now what? Now, we put you away, so you can't hurt anyone else.
That's what.
Really? You think kidnapping me is gonna do that, do you? I didn't kidnap you, Sam.
Well, I'm here against my will, aren't I? That's kidnapping in the eyes of the law.
I could sue you.
You believe this guy? What do you know about the law? I know enough to get away with breaking it.
Trust me, nobody's got anything on me and I'm gonna keep it that way, until they pay for how they killed my son.
Make who pay? That's for me to know and you to find out.
Although, it'll be too late by then.
Oh just shut up, okay? You're going to jail.
Now how are you gonna say you found me, huh? Beast tracking? Courts tend to like details, you know.
We're not really worried about that, Sam.
Well, you should be.
Cause I'm gonna make you explain who you really are; or, rather, what you are.
He's just trying to bait you.
A beast who's responsible for helping me create my own beasts.
What are you talking about? I'm talking about Tori, remember her? You're the reason why I got her blood, while your friend here made the beast serum in the first place.
Don't listen to him.
You're the reason Tori's dead.
Which is why I can even turn people into beasts.
Think of Cat.
Is that what this is about? You're trying to tame your inner beast, so you can get your girl back? Listen, you smarmy piece of crap, it is over, you are done.
I'll get out-- I'll kill you, first-- Vincent.
You wanna kill me? Vincent! You wanna kill me?! Then go ahead.
'Cause that is the only way that you are ever gonna stop me! - Stop! - Vincent! I wasn't trying to hurt the guy, okay? I was, I was just trying to find him-- Which, by the way, we did.
Yeah, but how? I think we all know how, Gabe.
Look, I'm not standing in judgment, okay? I appreciate your efforts, Vincent, I do.
And God knows we all want to bust, Sam.
But we can't do it by using What? What were you gonna say, beast justice? Yeah, frankly.
He's got that on us, on you.
That, plus how well he covers his tracks means we need to build a legitimate case against Sam if we ever hope to truly stop him.
Okay, know, I know, okay? And believe me, I was trying to do the right thing, I was.
But I Okay, and that's why we called, to do the right thing by handing Sam over to you.
But you should've called before you got him.
Right, because we don't have a case yet.
At least not one that'll stick.
Sam's a psycho! He baited Vincent.
From inside a cage? Well at least he's off the streets, which means he can't JT, it it's fine, it's fine.
Just go home, man, and I will, uh, I'll see you later, okay? Okay, so what do we do now? Guess try to bluff Sam into thinking I do have a case.
See if I can salvage this mess.
I hope you weren't too hard on the guy.
He's got issues.
Yeah, well, his issues don't include stealing Tony Barnes' identity.
You're going for the Al Capone approach, aren't you? They couldn't get Capone for murder, so the Feds went with what? Wire fraud? Tax evasion.
Yeah, well.
He still died a criminal, Sam, just like you will.
Come on, counselor.
Is that all you got? Really? Stolen ID, these days? Will get you five years.
That gives me more than enough time to prove everything else.
Hell, even probable cause'll keep you tied up in legal wranglings for months, maybe years.
Which means you'll have to wait even longer to get your revenge.
Oh, I thought that might get your attention.
See, we've got you, Sam.
And I'll get you for the capital crimes, too, I swear.
But you can cut your losses, plea out, cooperate with us right here, right now.
And if you do, I promise I will do everything in my power to help bring those responsible for your son's death to justice.
What do you say? I say you let me loose if you don't want anybody else to die.
What's that supposed to mean? It means exactly what it sounds like.
I found my next beast candidate before Vinnie here tracked me down.
Have him chained up, too, where nobody can find him.
Man needs food and water to survive.
He's bluffing.
No, he's not.
Sam could be telling the truth, but I can't be sure 'cause I haven't located all the Muirfield orphans yet.
How many have you found? that aren't accounted for.
Nine? How fast do you think you can you find them? Not fast enough.
Damn it.
Okay, just keep trying.
We can't risk it.
No, I know.
Okay, what if I follow Sam, try and save whoever he has captive now? But if he catches you trying to track him again, he might kill him.
You can't just let him go.
Yeah, well, thanks to you, we don't have much of a choice now, do we? Just let him go.
My apologies, I got sidetracked.
Did anyone come knock on your door? No.
Easy, easy, just sips.
What's happening to me? You're in transition.
From ordinary to extraordinary.
I don't understand.
It doesn't matter.
You're gonna do exactly as I say, and you won't have a choice.
It's part of the injection I gave you.
It makes you very agreeable.
What is it you want? I want you to help me find the people who killed my son.
Before you do, you're gonna buy us some time, take out the guy I'm betting is gonna try and save you first.
And we're gonna help him find you.
I let myself in.
I can see that.
Where's Catherine? I came alone.
To talk.
About? Catherine.
I know what you're doing.
It's pretty obvious.
You're trying to win her back by proving you're not the beast she thinks you are anymore.
How would you know what Catherine thinks? 'Cause she's staying at my place now, not yours.
Look, I commend you for what you're trying to do Screw you, Gabe.
But it won't work.
You can never win the battle.
For what, for Catherine? For your soul.
Vincent, you are part beast, just like I used to be.
Which means I know.
I know you can't ever fully control it.
Gabe, I'm not like you.
That's right, you're not.
Thanks to Catherine, I'm not a beast anymore, I'm free of that.
And because I am, I can offer her something you never can.
A future.
Without beasts.
Just stop thinking about yourself, for once, and think about Catherine.
About what's best for her.
Let me guess, is that you? At least I can offer her a normal life.
One without her having to worry about my beasting out at any given moment, like you did today.
See, I don't have to worry about controlling it anymore, but you do, and you always will.
Vincent, if you love Catherine, if you truly care about what's best for her, you'll stay away.
For her sake.
I've been looking all over for you.
What are you doing? What's it look like I'm doing? Okay, w-well What about Sam? What happened? Well Gabe let him go.
What? Uh, uh, hold on, rewind.
What the hell's going on? What don't I know? A lot, obviously, including the fact that Gabe told me to stay away from Catherine.
For good.
And you let him live? Yeah, I did, because he's right.
Sorry? Talk to me.
What do want me to say, man? Okay, look, I tried-- I don't know, how do I put this-- going beast straight for Catherine, and it didn't work out, okay? It'll never work out.
That what Gabe said? And you're gonna buy that crap? Yeah, because he's right.
I can't control my other side, okay? So it's not fair to Catherine.
I'm always gonna be what I am.
So just be yourself.
Both selves.
Stop trying to be somebody you're not.
What are you saying? Look, Vincent, you've gotten better, okay? You've already proven your humanity's back.
All you cared about yesterday was doing everything you could to save a life, right? Yes, but But that doesn't mean you should ignore your other half.
Don't be ashamed of that part of you, it's just something to be better in control of, that's all, like you've been lately.
Well, I wasn't today, was I? Right, so you're not perfect.
What's more human than that? It's all about finding balance, my friend, embracing who you are.
And, you know, that's something in life we're all looking for.
Not just you.
Okay, is this another of your pep talks? Yes, and pretty soon I'm gonna start charging you for them.
You know, maybe you should stop thinking about trying to do what you think Cat wants and start doing what you want.
See where that leads.
What do you want? I want to help save anyone else from going through what I had to go through.
I want to save Sam's next victim.
Then track him down and save him.
His name's Xavier Wright.
History teacher, he didn't show up to work and he didn't call in sick.
He's from the orphanage? Yeah.
He's on West 14th.
Well, if Sam got him, he's long gone by now.
Call in master-tracker.
Vincent? No.
We got to do this by the book if we're ever gonna nail Sam.
But don't you have to catch him first, don't you need Vincent to do that? Gabe doesn't want to.
And, frankly, I don't blame Gabe.
Especially after what happened this morning.
So less beast, less Vincent? Both professionally and personally, apparently.
And you're good with that? Yeah, Gabe's right.
Vincent's way doesn't work.
Street justice isn't justice.
We have to follow the law, not make it up as we go along.
You're not gonna tell me that's what separates man from beast next, are you? Sorry.
So, Gabe offered me a key to his apartment.
A key meaning no big deal, or a key meaning here's half the closet? What do you think? I think when a guy offers a girl a key, it's more than just a key.
That's what I think, too.
So, what are you gonna do? I am going to find Xavier.
What are you doing here? What are you doing here? I asked you first.
What are you, like, six? I'm trying to look for Sam's next victim.
Yeah, that's what I'm doing, too.
Yeah, well, I was just closing in on him, okay, until you rammed your car into me.
Well, it would have been justified, interfering with a police investigation.
If we're this close to Xavier, Sam's probably nearby, too.
Quick, get in before he spots us.
Vincent, I know you're trying to help, I do, but I can't let you get in the way.
I have to track Xavier to Sam so that I can catch him in the act, so that I can arrest him, and Gabe can prosecute.
Sam? Yes.
What about Xavier? You know he's an innocent victim in all this, right? He's a person, too.
No, of course I do Well, how do you plan on saving him? Well, first, we have to stop Sam.
Okay, well, I want to save Xavier from Sam.
But how, if he's already been injected? Wait.
How did you get on Xavier's trail? I picked up the scent where I found Sam last.
Why? I thought you said that Sam knew how to cover his tracks from you.
But you had no trouble finding Xavier's? No.
Vincent, I think that Sam wanted you to follow him.
Oh, come on.
Why would Sam? You okay? Hey! Hey, wait! You okay? Can you reach the release? Hang on.
Is this it? Ow.
You all right? Yeah.
No, move your leg.
Ow! Oh, God! Oh.
I'm sorry.
You okay? Yeah.
Your knee! Your knee! I'm sorry.
- It's okay.
- Okay? All right.
Wait, can you just move my leg? Here.
Which? Here? Yeah.
Which way are you gonna go? Oh, God.
Oh, boy.
Well, that was fun.
Yeah, you could say that.
Does your door open? No, we're trapped.
The hell we are.
Hang in there.
Fire department's coming! Okay.
Thanks! Thank you! Come on! Hurry! They're over here.
This sucks.
Bright side? At least it's a department car.
My car's in the shop.
What? Really? That is the bright side to all this? Don't get mad at me.
This is your fault.
How is this my fault? Xavier was after you.
I got caught in the crossfire, like always.
Well, he's just following Sam's orders.
What? You're defending him? No, I Over here, over here, boys.
Hold on, we'll get you out.
Bring the jaws in, come on.
Look, the point is, Sam's gone to a lot of trouble to try and slow us down, which he has succeeded at.
He's probably trying to buy time.
Whatever his plan is, it's happening now.
Right, which is the reason we have to get out of here.
You can't beast out.
There are too many people out there.
No one is gonna see me here.
Yes, they will.
It's probably Tess.
Can you reach that? Here? No! No! Sorry.
It is okay, it is in my pocket, Vincent.
I got it.
You're the back.
I got it.
I got it.
I got Wait.
Okay, good Okay.
Hello? Cat, good news.
Gabe? I think I just found Sam.
He rented an office on Tenth Avenue.
Yeah, that's like a block away.
Okay, what number? Wait.
Is that Vincent? Yeah.
Yeah, we're stuck.
It's a long story.
Gabe, what's the address? a short-term lease under the name of Tony Barnes.
I'm sorry.
How are you stuck, exactly? Who are you texting? JT.
Try and see if he can find out anything about this address.
It's got to be significant, right? I already checked.
It's nothing.
What is that? It's the Jaws of Life.
The what? Catherine, what is going on? We got in a little accident, but we're fine.
Can you move? My leg is falling asleep.
Okay, all right, sorry.
Catherine? Yeah, I'm here, still here.
How close are you? Too close.
What? I think he's talking about Sam.
- Oh.
Oh, close.
- Good, because I'm on my way downtown, but you should head over there now.
And I'm-I'm sorry.
How, uh, exactly did Vincent end up in your car again? Does 1233 Tenth mean anything to you? Is that across from Sam? Who are you talking to? No.
Apparently, it is the biggest non-secret in Geekdom.
Some CIA bunker off-site.
Gabe, did you hear that? Why would Sam care about a CIA bunker? And what does that have to do with his son? I don't know, but, obviously, it requires a beast.
Okay, we got to get out of here.
Did you hang up on him? Hello? Yes, I did.
Hey, buddy? Hey, buddy, I think it's loose enough, okay? If you just pull, on three.
What are you doing? What are you doing? Two! Three! I'm fine.
Thank you.
Uh, I'm with her.
You should be approaching an elevator.
I'm here.
Good, take it down to sub-level 20.
Xavier? There's no oxygen down there.
Don't worry.
Your new skills will protect you.
Close your eyes, focus.
I'm in.
Remember to start the upload as soon as you reach the server.
Yeah, looks like it.
What are you doing? I'm gonna go find Xavier.
You can't go down there.
Don't you see the signs? Catherine, Sam is controlling Xavier, just like he controlled Jacob.
Okay? He doesn't care if Xavier dies.
But I care if you do.
Vincent, don't do this.
You don't have to prove yourself to me anymore.
I am not doing this for you, okay? I need to do this for myself.
I got Xavier, you go get Sam.
Don't move.
Whoa, easy.
You're under arrest.
Really? For what, identity theft? What is that? What, this? This is my get-out-of-jail-free card, Detective.
Xavier's wired with enough C-4 to blow himself and anyone around him to pieces.
So I would drop the gun if I were you.
How many innocent people have to die for you to avenge your son? I don't care.
Drop it now.
I can't.
I won't.
Don't do this.
No! If Vincent's dead, you're dead.
Come on, breathe! Come on, man.
Come on.
Come on, man.
Come on.
Damn it, stick with me! Come on.
Come on.
Keep breathing.
Just keep breathing, okay? You're going to be okay.
Just keep breathing.
We're gonna get you some help, okay? You okay? Did you get Sam? You could've died.
Already awake My hands are shaking For you.
We're done playing games, Landon.
You're under arrest and you're not talking your way out of it this time.
Gee, aren't you even gonna give me a chance? Shut up.
I'm talking now.
This isn't about identity theft anymore.
Now it's about domestic terrorism, and those are federal charges.
Really? Aren't you worried that I might share our little secret about Vincent? Look, wild accusations aren't gonna get you anywhere and you know it.
I've got proof-- you don't.
You know I offered to help.
I told you that I'd work with you, help you to find out who allegedly killed your son, but you wouldn't listen.
I don't need your help.
I can figure it out on my own.
What, you mean this? Because if you were hoping to get classified names or something, forget it.
It's encrypted, NSA level.
I know.
And we have it and you don't.
Does that amuse you? Yes, it does.
I'm curious, do you even care how many lives you've destroyed, how many people you've hurt? Does that even matter to you? Do you believe in God, Detective? Do you? I used to.
I used to believe that there was a Judgment Day, a reckoning when God would strike down those who've done terrible things.
But since I don't believe in that anymore Now you're playing God? No.
I'm exacting justice.
That's what the law is for.
These people are above the law! What people? Who are they? Well, whoever they are, you'll never get your revenge now.
All the lives lost, your life ruined-- has it really been worth it? Do you have any children, Lowan? Then you can't understand.
All I understand is you're going to jail.
Book him.
Come on, let's go.
Any idea why he's still so cocky? No.
Gabe, I'm sorry.
Really? For what? I was just happy for Vincent, you know? He just saved somebody's life.
You decided to hug him.
It wasn't like it was something I thought about doing.
It just happened.
It was in the moment.
And the two of you ending up together in your car, was that just in the moment, too? Well, it's not like we secretly planned it, if that's what you're thinking.
I'm not.
I'm sorry, Catherine.
I just, uh I don't know.
I guess I'm just tired of being the nice guy all the time, you know? And-and it's not like I don't have a lot to make up for.
I know that.
No, you don't.
You've more than made up for everything to me.
Then why do you keep ending up in Vincent's arms? Look, Catherine, I want you in my life, more than anything.
You know that.
And I have bent over backwards trying to prove that I am worthy of your love, but I need you to tell me where you stand, how you feel right now.
Are you with me or are you with him? I'm with you.
Then I need you to tell Vincent that.
Are you sure it's clean? Positive-- no sign of beast DNA anywhere.
Xavier is 100% human again.
I'm still not sure how it happened though.
Same way Cat saved Gabe, I guess.
Both died as beasts, both resuscitated as humans.
Okay, but they were both injected with different strains, right? Still, Xavier was only a beast for a day.
Maybe his DNA didn't have a chance to permanently mutate yet.
Hey, don't look at me.
I'm just making this crap up.
All that matters is he's normal now.
Well, except for his memory.
But he's alive because you saved him and not just by using your human side, both sides.
And not by trying to impress Cat either.
You did it for you.
Score one for the good guys.
Have a gummy worm.
Or a few.
All right.
Get some sleep, okay? Landon, you okay? You sick or something? No.
I'm fine.
I probably should've called first, uh, but we have to talk.
Uh, hungry? No, thank you.
Um, Vincent, this is really hard for me, but now that Sam's in jail, things need to change between us.
I'm with Gabe now.
I know.
And the problem is I can't move forward with him unless you and I stop seeing each other for a while, even as friends.
I completely understand.
I don't want to hurt you.
No, you deserve to be happy, and I can't make you happy.
No, that's not it.
Catherine, I've made a lot of mistakes.
I know.
We both have.
And Gabe is a good guy.
He is.
He really, you know, cares about you.
He does.
So I, uh I completely understand.
I'm glad.
Thank you.
Well, take care.
You, too.
I will find my way back I will find my Find my way back Yeah I don't want to go right now I don't want to lose my way You don't have to save me here 'Cause heaven knows when I'll stop looking for me To find my way back
