    Saw the latest episode on 2/16 and count me gone . Cat in bed with the cop and wanting Vincent out of her life. I can see why the ratings are so low .the show is not about beauty and the beast any more so either rename the show or cancel it already.

    PLEASE RENEW this show is so good!!!!! I just currently started watching it cought up on all the episodes on netflix then on the internet till i was current with season 2. I spent all day some times watching this show I really want to see how it ends…. maybe if the advertise it a little more they cant get more veiwers. I promise once you began to watch it you will be hooked…. Shows like this arent typically my type of thing just because im not really into the whole “beast” or fantasy things… or anything fake like that….. but this show is more about what the government does behind our back and has a lot of actoin and romance….. it has a little something that everyone can enjoy… I think that it just needs time once season 3 comes around i think there will be a lot more veiwers becuase its just starting to get good theres a lot going on right now in season 2 they cant just end it here..THEY CANT!!!!!
