Sole-surviving supersoldier Vincent (Jay Ryan) must deal with the repercussions of his past on a new episode of "Beauty and the Beast," 8 p.m. Thursday on the CW, channel 19, cable 12.
Vincent comes face to face with his former fiancée, Alex (guest star Bridget Regan). While Cat (Kristin Kreuk) is in the hospital, she is forced to confront her feelings for Vincent.
