|Portrayed by:||Kristin Kreuk|
I was saved by a beast. He didn't get there in time to save you, but he's still out there, and I have a feeling that now.....we're going to have to save each other.
|Catherine Chandler in the Pilot.|
Catherine Chandler is a main character on Beauty and the Beast.
Catherine's personality is rather complex in nature as a result of the trauma witnessed during her mother's death. She exhibits a large range of characteristics. Catherine is patient, caring, and compassionate, especially towards Vincent. However, she has trouble communicating her emotions to others directly, and often tries to hide them, this is seen in the episode, ("On Thin Ice"). Catherine shows difficulty handling her emotions, and often directs her energy into her work. By helping others, it gives Catherine a way to avoid dealing with her issues in her personal life. This is largely rooted from the tragedy from her mother's death, evident and indicated from her outburst toward her therapist. This traumatic event has left Catherine fragile emotionally in regards with what happen to her mother. Her toughness, courage, and fearlessness serve her well on the job as a detective in pursuit of criminals, but also during Vincent's transformations. Catherine is able to maintain a calm and level head in these heated situations. Catherine is highly altruistic, supportive, and resourceful towards her peers, but also towards those she serves. The development of her character along with her personality is likely to change as the series progresses further.
Catherine stands approximately 5,4 (same height as actress Kristin Kreuk) and has a mixed background, half asian, half caucasian, and has dark brown hair. Cathrine is mostly seen wearing jeans along with her casual top, and jacket as a detective. She changes her look frequently depending on the time of day, and occasion, such as her Dad's wedding. Catherine is very beautiful and fills the show's role as "The Beauty," and this has been indicated by other characters such as J.T. from the episode, "On thin Ice."
- For years I've been asking myself. Why did my car break down that night? What if my mother simply hadn't answered her phone? Who were those men? And....or what stopped them? Everyone told me it was just a wild animal. That this thing I thought I had seen was just a result of my concussion. I believed them..until now.
- —Catherine Chandler. [src]
Catherine grew up in Westchester with her parents, Thomas & Vanessa Chandler, and her younger sister, Heather. She graduated from Fenton High School in 2003, and attended Princeton, planning to become a lawyer like Thomas.
Catherine is saved by Vincent. ("Pilot")
While attending Princeton, she got a job as a bartender at the Salty Dawg in order to pay for tuition. On her first night, she had car trouble after closing up and called her mother for help. After Vanessa came out there, two men showed up and gunned down Vanessa in front of Catherine. When they tried to kill Catherine, she ran into the woods but tripped and fell. Just as they cornered her, the two gunmen were attacked by what Catherine described as a "beast." No one believed her, though, and she believed them when they said she was just traumatized.
Catherine graduated from Princeton, magna cum laude, and later graduated from the police academy with high marks. She worked her way up through the ranks to become a homicide detective at the 125th precinct.
Nine years later, Catherine and her partner, Tess Vargas, were investigating a case, and Catherine discovers a clue that leads her to Vincent Keller, a soldier, who was reportedly killed by enemy fire while serving in Afghanistan in 2002.
Catherine follows up with his roommate and friend, J.T. Forbes, and finds out that Vincent is actually alive. He begs her not to tell anyone he's alive, but she notices an article about her mother's murder in his belongings, and insists on getting answers. She finds out that there was a hair with cross-species DNA found in her case, similar to one found at her mother's murder. She tries to get answers from Agent McCleary, but she almost gets killed. The same mysterious beast saves Catherine again, and Catherine finds out the "beast" is actually Vincent.
Vincent later tells her how he was part of a classified military experiment called Operation Muirfield, which changed his DNA and turned him into a beast. The experiment went awry, and the military shut it down by killing all the experiments. Vincent survived, though, and has been hiding. Catherine decides to keep Vincent's secret, but also lets him know that she will not let him push her away or disappear again.
Catherine quickly learn that working with Vincent would not be easy. First, she alienates him by pushing him to reveal himself and then labeling him a victim. She later makes amends for these mishaps by apologizing to him. Though initially trying to push her away, Vincent finds it hard to stay away from Catherine and starts spending more time with her. Catherine is glad when Vincent lets her be a part of his life, but realizes she's going to be leading a "double life," hiding her life with Vincent away and lying to her family and friends.
Muirfield becomes alerted to Catherine's involvement with Vincent, and starts digging. Eventually, Agent Silverfox kidnaps Catherine, hoping to make her give up Vincent to them. Silverfox tries to scare her, then offers Catherine information on her mother in exchange for Vincent. Catherine is let go, and tells Vincent what happened. Catherine is shaken up, but when J.T. informs her that Vincent turned himself in, she helps him track down Vincent, and the three kill Silverfox and the other Muirfield agents.
Cat's birthday party. ("Saturn Returns")
When Catherine's birthday comes around, she is reluctant to celebrate it, and is upset when she realizes Heather already planned a birthday party for her. Catherine tells Vincent she'd rather spend time with him, but he encourages her to go to the party. During the party, her co-worker, Evan Marks, kisses her, surprising Catherine. However, she realizes she's not interested because of Vincent. Catherine later asks Vincent to join her for dinner, because that's what she would want for her birthday. Vincent never shows up, and Catherine thinks it's because he's not interested, and starts to pull away.
Vincent tracks Catherine down while she's working on a case, and is able to get her to understand that he is interested, but feels he is not worthy enough for her. The two makes plans to meet up again, but before they can get away, Catherine finds out the reason Vincent has been distant from her is because he's been having blackouts, during which he can be violent and can't remember what happened. When J.T. and Vincent both realize the blackouts are occurring when he's thinking about or going to see Catherine, she's forced to stay away from Vincent because she might be the trigger for his blackouts.
Vincent later calls her over when he has a flashback that reveals Vanessa was in Afghanistan, and part of Muirfield. Catherine is around when Vincent finds out she's not the trigger, and the blackouts are actually a side effect of the experiments. Catherine goes through her mother's old files, and helps J.T. find and synthesize a cure that stops Vincent's blackouts. Catherine is upset that her mother was responsible for what happened to Vincent, but Vincent assures her that she can heal from it, and he'll help her.
Evan saving Cat's life. ("Bridesmaid Up")
When her father gets married to Brooke, Catherine is one of the bridesmaids. She wishes that Vincent could come with her, but understands he needs to stay away. However, during the reception, Vincent sneaks in and the two share a dance. Catherine, though, finds out that Evan has been studying Vincent's DNA, and he found out that it has been slowly mutating. She shares this with Vincent, who leaves the reception. After Catherine gives a speech to Thomas & Brooke, she leaves to find Vincent to tell him that her feelings for him won't change because of his mutating DNA. However, she ends up getting into a serious car accident after Sabrina Meyer intentionally tries to kill her. Vincent pulls a badly injured Catherine out of the car, but leaves her in the middle of the road when Evan & Heather show up. Evan performs a roadside surgery on Cat, saving her life so she will make it to a hospital. 
While recovering at the hospital from her injuries, Catherine is visited by Vincent, and the two make amends after her father's wedding. Catherine finds out later that her attending nurse, Alex Salter, knows Vincent and caught him visiting her. When she asks Vincent about it, she finds out Alex is his ex-fiancee. Catherine finds out Alex has a stalker, and is suspicious that it's actually Muirfield. However, it turns out to actually be Connor Sorvino, a former patient of Alex's who became obsessed with her, and Vincent & Catherine are able to save Alex when Connor tries to kill her. Catherine thinks Vincent might still be in love with Alex, and tells him to find out if that is true before moving on with Catherine. Vincent starts spending more time with Alex, and Catherine is upset and jealous over being pushed aside. She slowly starts to come to terms with the fact that she is in love with Vincent, and confesses her feelings to him. Sadly, Vincent turns her down for Alex. Heartbroken, Catherine decides to let him go, but warns him to be honest with Alex about what happened to him.
While Alex and Vincent go away to a remote location in the mountains, Catherine tries to move on with her life. However, she finds out that Muirfield has been watching Alex, and realizes Vincent's in danger. She goes and finds them in a cabin, where she helps Vincent kill the Muirfield agents who try to trap and capture him. Alex sees Vincent as a beast and walks away, unable to handle what Vincent has become. Vincent later comes to Catherine, and apologizes for choosing Alex, saying he realizes he would never be happy with her as much as Catherine. Catherine, though, can't trust Vincent anymore for not choosing her, and decides to distance herself from him. Vincent lets her know that he'll always be there for her, and promises he'll do whatever it takes to make things right with Catherine.
On Valentine's Day, Vincent tries to win Catherine over again with romantic gestures. Initially annoyed, Catherine is later touched by his gifts and thoughtful actions. She ends up having to save Vincent when Muirfield tries to get Alex to turn him in, making her believe they can cure Vincent. She tries to stop Catherine from helping Vincent escape, but they convince her to let Vincent go. Afterwards, Catherine helps Alex disappear and leave town. Alex tells Catherine that Vincent was trying to make up for leaving her a decade before, and that he's in love with Catherine now. Catherine is caught by Tess destroying evidence that could expose Vincent. Angry with Catherine's constant lies, Tess decides to find a new partner. When Vincent & Catherine decide to try and start a relationship, Heather catches them together, worrying Catherine.
Catherine tries to feign ignorance with Heather, claiming Vincent is a random guy she picked up at a bar. However, Heather recognizes Vincent from Thomas' wedding. To stop Heather's suspicions, Catherine has Vincent come over for dinner, but finds out Heather also invited her new boyfriend, Darius. Heather does not warm up to Vincent, and later confronts Catherine with Tess while she's at work, asking who Vincent really is. Catherine still does not expose Vincent, causing a rift between her, Tess, and Heather. While Heather is nearly killed by Darius, on orders from two loan sharks he owes money to, Vincent intervenes, and ends up accidentally killing Darius. This proves to be dire, as Darius is the brother of Joe Bishop, Catherine's boss. When Catherine realizes Vincent was trying to protect Heather, she promises to help clear his name, choosing to stay with him, and the two finally begin a relationship.
When a new district attorney named Gabriel Lowen comes to Cat's precinct, she tries to find the man that ordered Darius to kill Heather in order to prove Vincent's innocence. Vincent helps her find the man, Ray Sheckman, and Catherine & Vincent are able to scare Ray into coming forward and admitting the truth. Ray mysteriously dies before he can clear Vincent's name. Joe and Gabe then reveal they are creating a task force to hunt down the vigilante (Vincent), and have assigned Cat, Tess, and Evan to this force. Cat hopes she can keep an eye on the investigation, but tells Vincent she's not going to leave him.
In order to stop the investigation, Vincent devises a plan to fake his death. Meanwhile, Tess is investigating the vigilante cases, and gets a lead that leads her to Vincent just as he's trying to escape. Tess finds out Vincent's secret and Catherine's involvement. She tries to report them, but ends up nearly getting killed by two rogue cops who were hunting Vincent on behalf of Gabe. Vincent saves Tess, and Catherine later apologizes to Tess for lying to her. Tess accepts her apology, and keeps Vincent's secret. Meanwhile, J.T. finds out that Evan has been working with Muirfield to capture Vincent. When Evan catches Cat and Vincent together, he confronts her, jealous and hurt by her choosing Vincent, and helps Muirfield capture Vincent.
J.T., Tess, and Catherine are able to track down Vincent to the spot where Muirfield has taken him. Catherine goes inside to rescue Vincent and Evan, who realized Muirfield was playing him. As they're escaping, Evan asks Vincent if he knows about Catherine's parents, to which Vincent replies he does, but says they can't tell her. As they try to leave, Muirfield closes in on them, and Evan sacrifices himself, getting shot and killed by Muirfield, allowing Cat and Vincent to escape. Cat finds out he also took the blame for helping the vigilante, clearing her of suspicion.
Cat becomes suspicious of Gabe, and thinks he's a part of Muirfield. When she confronts him, she finds out that he's actually an experiment of Muirfield, and has been hunting them down too. Gabe later confront Catherine when he realizes that the vigilante is still alive, and Catherine is the one protecting him. He reveals himself as a beast, as well, and explains that he's trying to find Vincent because he uses medication to control his transformations, but is hoping that Vincent could help him control them without it. Catherine brings Vincent to him, and he agrees to give Gabe a blood sample in exchange for some of his medication. Initially hopeful that he won't have to be a beast anymore, Catherine finds out that Gabe's medication will kill Vincent, and tells him to stop taking it for her sake. For a while, though, they're able to feel like a normal couple.
Catherine gets a call from her father, asking her to meet him immediately. When she goes to meet him, she sees him get run down by a car. Cat suspects it wasn't an accident, and Muirfield is responsible. At the hospital, she donates blood for Thomas, but when Heather comes by, Cat leaves to find out who was after Thomas. Before she can, though, she's kidnapped by Gabe, who is trying to kill Vincent in order to save himself. Vincent found out his plan, so Gabe takes Cat in order to force Vincent to give in to his demands. Vincent shows up to rescue her, but is unable to transform due to the effect of the medication.
At the same time, Heather is still with Thomas, and the hospital drops a bombshell on her: Catherine is not Thomas' biological daughter. Vincent & Catherine try to escape, but Gabe attacks them in full beast form. Catherine is able to reverse the effect of the medication, helping Vincent transform to fight Gabe. Just as Gabe is about to kill Vincent, a sniper in a helicopter shoots Gabe. They then capture Vincent, though Catherine tries to stop them, but. As Vincent is taken away, his captor is revealed to be FBI Agent Robert Reynolds, Catherine's biological father and head of Muirfield.
Three months later, Catherine is still trying to find Vincent, putting almost her entire life on hold. Catherine revived Gabe using a defibrillator, hoping he would track Vincent. Instead, when he was revived, Gabe became completely human. Catherine eventually finds Vincent with J.T. and Gabe's help. When she does, though, she finds out his memory has been wiped clean. Catherine leaves Vincent with J.T. in order to attend a tribute for Thomas, who died recently. During the tribute, she meets Agent Reynolds, though she doesn't know who he really is. She leaves, though, when she finds out Vincent disappeared again. Both J.T. and Gabe think that Vincent has become more dangerous, but Catherine still tries to get through to him.
Catherine finds out that Vincent's DNA has been modified so he can track down targets. She follows him, hoping she can help him remember her and find out who is controlling him. Initially frustrated by her following him, Vincent starts to feel drawn towards Catherine and the two grow closer. Catherine finds out that Vincent is being sent on missions to hunt down other beasts. She tries to find out who he's working for, but ends up getting hurt when Vincent reacts violently. Realizing he is dangerous, she asks Gabe and Tess for help to go undercover so she can find out who Vincent is working for. Meanwhile, Heather is offered a job in Miami, and tells Catherine about Thomas not being her biological father. Catherine is shocked, then upset when she finds out Heather found out months before, and never told her.
Catherine is able to get Vincent to trust her initially when she goes undercover, but he later figures out her true motive. He tries to throw Catherine off his trail by claiming he had a memory flash of her, but Catherine catches up with Vincent as he's tracking down another beast. Cat shows up with Tess and Gabe, and decides to help Vincent kill the beast, Sebastian Clifton. Catherine tries to trap Sebastian, but is overpowered. Vincent saves Catherine and kills Sebastian. While saving her, Vincent starts to regain some memories of Catherine. Meanwhile, Catherine goes home and apologizes to Heather for getting angry with her, and the two make amends before Heather leaves to Miami. Vincent later finds Catherine and tells her how he's starting to remember her. However, Catherine can't handle his secrecy anymore, so she pushes Vincent away.
Though she tries to distance herself from Vincent, Catherine is approached by Gabe to try to get rid of the beast in Vincent the same way Catherine did to Gabe. Feeling it's too risky, Catherine rejects Gabe's idea, but he later goes to Vincent by himself to suggest the idea and tells Vincent to capture a pyromaniac Beast, Eddie Long, to test it out on. Vincent, though, ends up getting hurt trying to kill Eddie, and Catherine covers for him again. The two team up with arson investigators to find Eddie, and find him in a burning building. Catherine calls Gabe over, and the two corner and kill Eddie. Gabe tries to use the defibrillator to revive Eddie, but the plan fails. Meanwhile, Catherine asks Gabe to help her find her biological father.
While Catherine is hosting a party with high school friends before their ten-year reunion, she ends up getting attacked by a beast looking for Vincent. Her high school classmate, Beth Bowman, witnesses the incident, and starts investigating what she saw as a reporter; Catherine tries to hold her off. Vincent finds out, and tracks the beast in order to protect Catherine. He finds out the beast is actually Zach Hayes, a soldier from his unit and Muirfield experiment who was presumed dead. Catherine is still reluctant to trust him. During her reunion, Gabe and Tess show up after finding out that Zach wants to kill Catherine to hurt Vincent. Vincent shows up to protect Catherine, but Zach shows up and goes after her; Vincent ends up killing Zach, saving Catherine's life. During the reunion, Catherine figures out that Agent Reynolds is her birth father.
Catherine confronts Reynolds, asking why he was never part of her life. Reynolds explains that when Vanessa found out she was pregnant, they had ended their relationship and she had already met Thomas; Thomas adopted Catherine, and Reynolds respected this by staying away. He lets Catherine know that he'll be part of her life if she wants him to be. When heiress Tori Windsor is kidnapped, Gabe calls Catherine, because he suspects Vincent kidnapped Tori while trying to kill her father, Curt, who is also a beast. Gabe suggests trying to get rid of the beast in Curt, instead. Cat then convinces Curt to try the idea in exchange for his daughter. Before Gabe can try it, though, Curt transforms, and Vincent transforms to fight him. Vincent ends up ripping Curt's heart out, killing him and shocking Catherine.
Catherine finds out that Gabe suspects whoever is ordering Vincent to kill beasts will try and kill him. This proves to be true, as Vincent narrowly escapes a death trap. They find evidence that indicates Vincent's anonymous handler is FBI, so Catherine decides to ask Reynolds for help. While she & Vincent are at Reynolds' house, Gabe and Tori show up. Vincent suddenly transforms and attacks Reynolds. Catherine finds out that Tori is also a beast, and Tori somehow amplifies Vincent's beast powers. Gabe and Cat later figure out that Reynolds is Vincent's handler.
Catherine tries to warn Vincent, and finds him after he & Tori narrowly escape a trap set by Reynolds to kill both of them. Vincent wants to kill Reynolds for what he's done, but Catherine warns him that if he does that, he'll lose his humanity. Gabe comes up with a plan to arrest Reynolds. They succeed in getting evidence on Reynolds, and Catherine arrests him. Vincent, though, intercepts her and tries to kill Reynolds. Catherine holds him at gunpoint, begging him to walk away and choose his humanity. Vincent doesn't, and Catherine shoots him. Reynolds is jailed, but Catherine is heartbroken over the fact that Vincent didn't choose to save their relationship.
When Tori is threatened by people who know about beasts, Catherine tries to help her because Vincent, now dating Tori, is seriously injured by the gunshot wound. She finds out that they were hired to rob a store owned by Curt. Before the thieves can kill Tori, Vincent shows up and saves her. Catherine tries to move on with her life, but finds it hard when Vincent is exposed to the press and constantly photographed. When FBI Agent Dana Landon asks her to go undercover to assist with a case, Catherine agrees to go. While undercover, she runs into Vincent, who is after the same thing the thieves she is working with are after; a gem that is connected to beasts.
When the group gets close to stealing the gem, Vincent shows up and threatens to kill one of the members if Catherine doesn't let him take the gem. Catherine lets him, horrified by how violent he has become. Dana reveals to Catherine that the gem has been linked to many murders over the years, including Dana's husband's death. The earliest record of the gem is from the 1800s, and it's linked to Rebecca Reynolds, Catherine's ancestor. Meanwhile, Catherine realizes Gabe is interested in a relationship with her, and gives him a kiss to show her interest.
Dana later sees the same gem being worn by Tori, and tells Tess and Cat to arrest her. Initially, they agree to try and get Tori to hand over the gem voluntarily. But when Tori attacks Catherine and Vincent refuses to hand over the gem, they arrest Tori. Soon after, Cat's precinct is taken hostage by a group of thieves after the gem.
Vincent then shows up, sneaking into the precinct. Vincent reminds her that he's been repeatedly betrayed by the ones he's trusted, and she's not the only who's been hurt. Catherine realizes her mistake, and tries to make one last appeal to Vincent, apologizing for hurting him and promising to protect him from being exposed. Vincent turns himself over to the thieves, trying to save the hostages. Catherine then turns off the power so Vincent can transform without being seen. Together, the two of them manage to stop the thieves and realize the gem can stop beasts from using their powers, but mysteriously disappears after the hostages are freed. However, they become friends again and work together to find out who has the gem.
Catherine & Vincent try to find where the gem was taken using Rebecca's notes from the 1800s. They run out of time when J.T. is kidnapped by the same people who were trying to get the gem. Cat & Vincent split up to find J.T., and Cat finds the underground dungeon J.T. was taken to. She saves Vincent by shooting J.T.'s kidnapper, but Tori dies after unexpectedly trying to save J.T., but getting tranquilized by his kidnapper, who drained Tori's blood to force J.T. to make a beast serum. Vincent feels responsible for Tori getting killed, and apologizes to Catherine for not choosing them or his humanity when he had the chance. They rescue Sam Landon, Dana's husband, who was alive and being held hostage by J.T.'s kidnapper. Catherine decides to pursue a relationship with Gabe while trying to find out who wanted the serum J.T. was forced to make.
Catherine figures Sam is the one trying to create a beast to help him get revenge on the people who killed his son. Catherine tries to get Vincent to track down the beast Sam created using J.T.'s serum, but he's unable to stop him because he doesn't want to use his beast side anymore. When Catherine finds this out, J.T. reveals that Vincent is trying to change in order to win her back. Catherine eventually corners Sam, and Vincent saves the beast Sam created. Meanwhile, Gabe tells Catherine that Vincent being in their lives is interfering with their relationship, and that she has to make a choice. When Catherine chooses Gabe, he tells her to let Vincent know.
Catherine goes to Vincent, and tells him she's moving on with Gabe. That night, though, she ends up in bed with Vincent. Catherine wakes up and is mortified by what she did, leaving in a haste. When Vincent asks her about it, Cat tells him it was a mistake and she's still choosing Gabe. Vincent, though, says that he's not going to stop fighting for her and trying to win her back. When Sam escapes from prison, Gabe, Catherine, & Vincent track him to a charity ball where they believe he intends to kill those responsible for killing his son. At the ball, Vincent again tries to reach out to her, but Catherine still rejects him because she's too afraid of getting hurt again. When Vincent keeps pushing her to see that he has changed, she deflects the conversation to finding Sam. They eventually figure out that Sam is going after the group who originally created Muirfield to use beasts as weapons for power.
Catherine & Vincent find Sam, and manage to stop him from killing the group. When Sam tries to commit suicide because he could not fulfill his revenge, Vincent is the one who talks Sam down, encouraging him to help Cat & Gabe expose the group for what they've done. His appeal to Sam makes Catherine realize Vincent has changed, and she breaks up with Gabe; Vincent & Catherine reunite.
Vincent is arrested for Curt Windsor's murder right after he & Catherine get back together. Catherine immediately suspects Gabe, though he denies it. She, J.T., and Tess try to make sure Vincent is not exposed as a beast. Catherine then confronts Reynolds, realizing he was the only other person who knew Vincent killed Curt. Though he doesn't directly confess, Reynolds tells Catherine that Vincent is going to get locked up and she can't stop it. Catherine tries to find a way to prove he framed Vincent. However, when Vincent decides to confess to the murder, she decides to come forward as a witness. Before she can, though, Vincent escapes from prison and becomes a fugitive.
Vincent later finds Catherine, and tells him he's going to run away in order to protect her from losing her job. Before he can run, though, Gabe comes by with evidence showing Reynolds paid an ex-con to frame Vincent. When he & Catherine go to question him, however, they find the ex-con dead. Catherine decides to run away with Vincent rather than risk losing him again. However, the police surround them, and Catherine gets Vincent to leave without her so he doesn't get caught. Soon after, Catherine is kidnapped from her house by an unknown group.
The group is revealed to be FBI agents, head up by Agent Henry Knox. He asks for Catherine & Vincent's help to rescue another agent who was kidnapped. Catherine is skeptical to believe him until he reveals that Dana was the one who told him to get Catherine & Vincent's help. Knox tells Catherine that he's willing to get Vincent exonerated if they help him out. Catherine still doesn't trust him, and escapes when she gets the chance. She finds Vincent, who tracked her down to rescue her. They find out that Gabe has set up a task force and full-scale manhunt to track down Vincent.
Vincent tells Catherine he doesn't want to run and leave her behind. Catherine still feels like they have no choice, but Vincent convinces her to go back to Agent Knox, and get his help. The two go find, and agree to help, Agent Knox. They're able to rescue Agent Mallory from her kidnappers, and escape without being detected. Knox then reveals someone stopped his attempt to exonerate Vincent. Catherine realizes it was Gabe, and later yells at him for hurting her & Vincent. Gabe argues that he was protecting Catherine, and will do anything to "destroy Vincent"; Catherine realizes she can't trust Gabe anymore.
While Knox works on getting Vincent exonerated, Catherine tries to evade the police, who start following her in order to find Vincent. Gabe then has Catherine & Tess suspended, trying to capture Vincent. Catherine gets an unexpected visit from Heather during this time, who wants to tell Catherine that she's engaged. When Heather finds out about Cat dating Vincent, she gets angry and walks away from Cat. Catherine & Vincent dig into Gabe's past so he can't block Vincent's exoneration. They find out he was responsible for Ray Sheckman's murder, and a witness who can prove it. While tracking down the witness, Catherine gets a call from Heather, who was kidnapped by Ray's brother, Tom. They realize that Gabe found out, and told Ray's brother about Heather. Vincent tracks down Heather, while Catherine and Tess later show up and kill Tom & his accomplices. Vincent is able to save Heather, who finds out his secret. Heather makes amends with Cat and starts to accept Vincent.
Gabe is I.D.'d as the killer, but makes bail and later kills the witness. Vincent & Catherine tried to to find the witness' body, but ended up running when Vincent gets recognized on the streets. Agent Knox agrees to put them in witness relocation until he can get Vincent exonerated. The two move out of the city to a suburban neighborhood. While there, though, they end up investigating a murder that occurs and expose themselves. They come back to the city, where Agent Knox says he can push the exoneration through if Vincent turns himself in and goes back to prison; Catherine convinces Vincent to agree to this. However, they find out that Gabe told Beth the truth about Vincent, and she's trying to publish a story about it. Realizing Gabe is completely deranged over his obsession with Cat, she tries to get him to back off Vincent. Gabe agrees to cal Beth off if Cat goes on a date with him to give Gabe a second chance.
Vincent later turns himself in publicly at a press conference, where Beth speaks up and asks Vincent about being a failed military experiment. Though she is shut down about her questions, Catherine tries to figure out why Beth is still asking, and realizes Gabe figured out Cat just went on a date with him to protect Vincent. During Heather's bachelorette party, Catherine gets a call from Agent Knox, saying that Vincent disappeared from his cell. Thinking Gabe is responsible, she goes over to his place and confronts him. Gabe, though, is still trying to convince Catherine to give him a second chance. When she tells him off and tells him she's disgusted by his actions, Gabe finally goes off and says he was justified in his actions because he was protecting. Furious, Catherine beats Gabe down. When he doesn't wake up, Catherine freaks out about having possibly killed him. When Vincent arrives, she gets him to save Gabe. Vincent reveals he didn't escape, but was taken out of his cell by two government agents who let him go so he could kill Gabe. Agent Knox later tells Vincent that he was exonerated by the people who took him out of his cell.
Catherine later confronts Gabe, threatening to expose him if he tries to hurt Vincent again. Catherine gets a hold of Rebecca's journal from Gabe, and find out Rebecca was in love with a beast, as well, named Alistair. She's suspicious that history could be repeating itself, and Vincent could be in danger from Gabe. When she finds out Gabe has become a beast again and killed Beth, she is afraid that Vincent could die the way Alistair did. When Gabe kills Agent Knox, Catherine tries to stop Vincent from hunting him down. She locks him in the dungeon the way Rebecca did to Alistair to protect him, leaving the gem outside to stop him from escaping. Catherine later realizes, though, that this is what led to Alistair's death, as Rebecca left him vulnerable and he was killed by the people who thought he was a murderer. She lets Vincent out, and they work together to stop Gabe.
Catherine & Vincent later find J.T. after he has been attacked by Gabe. Realizing it's to taunt Vincent, Catherine stops him from going after Gabe by himself. Gabe later finds Vincent, and his beast powers are hindered by Catherine, who puts the gem around his neck to stop him. Catherine lets him know that J.T. got all the evidence they needed to connect Gabe to the murders, and he's going to jail. Angry that his plan didn't work, Gabe attacks and tries to kill Catherine. Catherine, though, gets the upper hand, and kills Gabe. Vincent is cleared of suspicion and Catherine is reinstated. Vincent & Catherine later find out J.T. will survive, thanks to the agents who took Vincent out of his cell. They ask Vincent & Catherine to join them to stop other threats out there; they put off their answer to the agents. Catherine enjoys a moment later with Vincent, happy she no longer has to hide their relationship.
Tess is Catherine's partner at the NYPD, and also her best friend.
Heather is Catherine's younger half-sister.
Gabe and Catherine's relationship is a tricky one, With Vincent's Beast side in control most times thanks to Tori's side of things finally Catherine finds herself able to move on to be with Gabe though her feelings for him were tested near the start when Vincent starts showing her that he has changed and that he wants her back.
Catherine brakes up with Gabe at the end of About Last Night when she realizes that Vincent has changed and that she does love him.
J.T. most likely knew about Catherine before they ever met due to the fact that Vincent had a newpaper clipping of her from nine years ago. When she first discovers Vincent and becomes involved with him, J.T. is very distrusting of her and wants her to stay away from them, even calling himself "The President of the stay-away-from-Catherine club". His cold attitude towards her begins to thaw around Basic Instinct when they work together to find and stop Vincent from handing himself over to Muirfield. He realizes that Catherine is as devoted to protecting Vincent as he is. In Trapped, they work together again to try and stop Vincent's blackouts with Catherine managing to lure Evan away from his forensics lab so that J.T. could work in there undetected for two hours in order to formulate a serum to remedy the blackouts. He becomes aware of the fact that Vincent and Catherine have developed feelings for each other and appears to support the idea of them pursuing a relationship.
