Beauty and The Beast “Playing with Fire” episode 19 airs Thursday Aril 25 2013 at 9pm on the CW.

Episode Synopsis: Beauty and The Beast (CW) Episode 19 “Playing with Fire” – Gabe (Sendhil Ramamurthy) comes clean to Cat (Kristin Kreuk) that he knows about Muirfield. Vincent (Jay Ryan) does not think Cat should trust Gabe and is suspicious of his intentions, which causes tension between them. Meanwhile, JT (Austin Basis) and Vincent finally find a new place to live. Nina Lisandrello and Brian White also star. Mike Rohl directed the episode written by Brian Studler

Detective Catherine Chandler is a smart, no-nonsense homicide detective. Several years earlier, Catherine witnessed the murder of her mother at the hands of two gunmen. Catherine would have been killed too, but someone – or something – saved her. No one has ever believed her, but she knows it wasn’t an animal that attacked the assassins…it was human. Years have passed, and Catherine is a strong, confident, capable police officer, working alongside her equally talented partner, Tess. While investigating a murder, Catherine discovers a clue that leads her to a handsome doctor named Vincent Keller, who was reportedly killed by enemy fire while serving in Afghanistan in 2002.

Catherine learns that Vincent is actually still alive and that it was he who saved her many years before. For mysterious reasons that have forced him to live outside of traditional society, Vincent has been in hiding for the past 10 years to guard his secret – when he is enraged, he becomes a terrifying beast, unable to control his super-strength and heightened senses. Catherine agrees to protect his identity in return for any insight he may have into her mother’s murder. Thus begins a complex relationship between Catherine and Vincent, who are powerfully drawn to each other yet understand that their connection is extremely dangerous for both of them.

The series stars Kristin Kreuk (“Smallville,” “Chuck”) as Catherine, Jay Ryan (“Terra Nova”) as Vincent, Max Brown (“The Tudors,” “MI-5?) as Evan, Nina Lisandrello (“Nurse Jackie”) as Tess, Nicole Gale Anderson (“Make It or Break It”) as Heather, Austin Basis (“Life Unexpected”) as J.T., and Brian White (“The Shield,” “The Cabin in the Woods”) as Joe. BEAUTY AND THE BEAST is from CBS Television Studios with executive producers Jennifer Levin (“Without A Trace,” “Felicity”), Sherri Cooper (“Brothers and Sisters”), Bill Haber (“Rizzoli & Isles,” “Thurgood”), Paul J. Witt (“A Better Life”) & Tony Thomas (“A Better Life”), Ron Koslow (“Moonlight”) and Gary Fleder (“Life Unexpected”)

It goes without saying that Beauty and the Beast fans are lovers of fairy tales. The six-month-old show, introduced on Big CBS Prime last week, is a retelling of an old story, and sees Catherine Chandler (Kristin Keuk), a sexy homicide detective, who witnesses her mother being shot and saved by a mysterious ‘beast.’ Vincent or the beast (Jay Ryan) is a doctor who joined the military after the Sept 11 terrorist attacks and became a lab rat for a vaccine that turned soldiers into killing machines. He keeps his connection with Chandler a secret, and helps her with her cases, while she covers up her attraction to him. The highlight of the People’s Choice Award winning series is the chemistry between Keuk and Ryan. We catch up with the Australian actor who describes his character and why he thinks fairy tales need to be retold:

The character of Vincent is kind of in reverse. Generally, in a fairy tale, the beast turns into this prince. Our version of Beauty and The Beast is new and fresh. It’s a modern fairy tale and they are to be retold and changed.

Whenever the Beast mask is put on me, I get into this crazy alter ego of a joker and Keuk cannot stop laughing.

Although I’m normally a very chilled-out person, I do have a temper. When it comes out it is quite fierce and lethal. So, in that respect it’s similar to Vincent, because he is quite a calm kind of guy, but has to deal with this chemical buildup inside of him.

New Zealand and Australia was like a tough pre-school for Hollywood. And having been on Neighbours-the agents I met knew it’s where Russell Crowe and Guy Pearce had come from-it was a foot in the door. Of course, fame is a double-edged sword. In New Zealand, we don’t really promote ourselves and so I didn’t have a lot of experience with the media. But you gain a really good work ethic.

Throughout the process of casting, chemistry was one of the main things that the network and the studio wanted to test… The first time I met Keuk I had this huge Mel Gibson (type) wig on, and I thought this is not going to go well. Luckily, she is a true professional. She saw through it, and yeah we work together great.

My favourite series is Six Feet Under, just for the final episode. You know how they fast-forwarded through the characters lives? That was incredible.

I’m a bit of a dancer. I actually trained in contemporary dance when I was doing my theatre. I can bust a move. I’m also trained in physical theatre, which is sort of like a fierce, free and crazy movement type of theatre. My girlfriend and I create film and theatre together.

Jane Campion’s miniseries Top of the Lake is currently airing on the Sundance Channel, and I’m hooked. Mad Men‘s Elisabeth Moss takes the reins in the seven-part series as Robin, a New Zealand detective investigating a young girl’s disappearance. Tui, the missing 12-year-old girl, is pregnant, and though there are a myriad of questionable men in her life (including Beauty and the Beast‘s Jay Ryan as her half brother), the baby’s paternity is unknown. It could be a straightforward procedural, but Campion (The Piano, Bright Star) weaves a strange and unique mystery. Here’s my case for why Top of the Lake should be at the top of your DVR.

  1. The cast is fantastic. Sure, Peggy is a main character on Mad Men, but she’s constantly walking in Don Draper’s shadow. In Top of the Lake, Moss dons a convincing Kiwi accent as Robin and holds her own as the detective with a past. Holly Hunter also gives a fascinating performance as GJ, the silver-haired leader of a bizarre women’s retreat that has taken up residence by the lake.
  2. The scenery is captivating. The show is set in New Zealand, and the landscape is breathtaking. Robin jogs through lush green forests, the lake mentioned in the title is an expansive and dreary yet majestic body of water in the middle of sloping mountains, and its rocky beaches are inhabited by some strange characters.
  3. The tone is ominous and intriguing. As a fan of The Killing, it struck me that not only is Top of the Lake similar in plot, but also in its dark tone. It’s just as edgy, but instead of being depressing, it’s bizarre. There’s rarely sunshine, and there’s a creepy overtone to nearly every bit of dialogue.
  4. The pace is perfect. The miniseries originally ran in full at the Sundance Film Festival, but it works really well broken up in parts. Each episode ends on a cliffhanger, and Campion reveals just enough about each character to keep you on your toes.

One of the enormous double ballrooms of the Anaheim Convention Center was packed nearly to capacity Friday for the WonderCon panel spotlighting Beauty and the Beast, the freshman CW drama that took home the People’s Choice Award for favorite new drama.

A reimagining of the classic fairy tale, and the 1980s CBS series of the same name, it stars Smallville alum Kristin Kreuk as New York City homicide detective Catherine Chandler, who risks everything for the forbidden love of former Army specialist Vincent Keller (Jay Ryan), a victim of government experiments that transformed him into a “beast.”

The presentation officially began after a screening of almost 40 minutes of footage from the series’ 18th episode “Heart of Darkness.” No lighthearted romp, this gritty, atmospheric work mixed romantic moments (“… like any other couple on a lazy day …”) with intense action scenes (a black ops squad with automatic weapons prowls the underground weaponry) with a dash of humor (a Men in Black joke, a Manimal reference) along the way.

Moderator Jenna Busch of Fanhattan.com guided Kreuk and Executive Producer Kelly Souders with the skill of a late-night talk show host, giving plenty of time for fan questions but never letting the energy dip.

For example, Busch noted there was no drawn-out “will they or won’t they” between the two leads, and wondered whether that means there would be a problem finding story grist. “I think you’ll find there’s no problem keeping the drama going,” Souders said. For the remainder of the season, she said, “every episode has some massive reveal, some major turn, some twist. There isn’t a quiet one among them.”

The cat, err, beast is out of the bag on Beauty and the Beast.

Just when Catherine (Kristin Kreuk) and her love Vincent (Jay Ryan) had finally devised a plan to throw off the NYPD, Tess (Nina Lisandrello) spotted Vincent on his way out of the burning warehouse and shot him. Immediately after, Catherine ran in and threw herself at the injured Vincent and pleaded with Tess not to fire again. On Thursday’s episode (9/8c, The CW), will Tess reveal what she saw to her bosses? And will the heightened search for the vigilante cause the couple — who finally hooked up! — to split apart?

Last week ended with Tess shooting Vincent and with Catherine revealing her secret. Where does it pick up?
Jay Ryan: Tess’ initial instinct is to run and get the hell out of there! Catherine almost straightaway professes her love for Vincent, but then Vincent pleads with Catherine that he will be fine and Catherine needs to go after Tess. He knows if Tess gets out of that tunnel system and gets to Joe and the NYPD, then it’s over; there’s no way out. So Catherine needs to tell her calmly what’s going on and try to gain some humanity out of her friend and then give her some time to work out what the next plan is going to be.

Spring TV: Must-see new shows

Will Vincent try to reason with Tess?
Ryan: I’m excited for people to see the way Vincent and Tess sniff each other out and the way they communicate because they’re both very similar.

Where are Vincent and J.T. (Austin Basis) going to live now that their place blew up?
Ryan: I wanted to live in the sewer, but I don’t think they have a place yet so the sewers, for now, are their hideout

Viewers now know that Gabe (Sendhil Ramamurthy) is shady. Will Vincent and Catherine realize this?
Ryan: Vincent has this feeling that he can’t put his finger on, and it’s something he’s never gone through, the way he reacts to this man. This throws Vincent off and he questions whether his abilities are off because Catherine trusts Gabe and thinks he’s loyal and that he has a lot he can bring to this situation to help them. So that’s where Vincent and Catherine might rub against each other in the wrong way instead of rubbing each other in the right way.

Give these stars a show!

Vincent and Catherine finally got together! Will they remain happy or is it all downhill from here?
Ryan: I think they’re in a great place at the moment and emotionally I think they’ll stay there. But these are two people from opposing worlds and the forces against them are pretty strong. There are going to be bumps in the relationships as they try to make it work within the world they live in.

The show has yet to be renewed. Anything you want to say to the passionate fans?
Ryan: I’m just in awe of their dedication to the show and keep roaring!
