There’s a new beast in town and she seems to have a very interesting power.
Last episode we met Tori (Amber Skye Noles), the daughter of a big time criminal who also happened to be a beast. Vincent (Jay Ryan) left Tori fatherless as he killed her dad during a fight.
It was previously reported by TVLine Noles’ character may have some Beast DNA inside her. The end of Episode 6 confirmed the report as Tori’s eyes turned a beastly-hazel as she looked at herself in the mirror.
Judging from Tori’s expression as she saw her eyes change, she was pretty shocked. Noles recently confirmed that her character was unaware of her abnormalities.
“She’s never seen her eyes glow like that — and it’s sort of unclear what triggered it,” Noles said according to TVLine.com. “That is definitely the first time that she has gone through a change like that.” Noles also tells the website her character will turn totally beast in the near future.
This season almost every beast to which we’ve been introduced has varied in both ability and skill level. It appears Noles character has the power to make beasts, well, more beastly by simply touching them. We first witnessed this in the woods as she hugged Vincent and his eyes inadvertently glowed. After that he had more of a desire to kill and seemed to be stronger. (This is probably why the method he chose to kill Tori’s father was ripping his heart out.) We also saw Tori’s ability when she grabbed her father’s hand and he got stronger and ripped through his restraints. What will happen when Tori figures out what she can do?
According to the preview for next week’s episode, “Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner”, Tori is going to have a nice Thanksgiving dinner with Vincent, Agent Reynolds (Ted Whittall), Cat (Kristin Kreuk) and Gabe (Sendhil Ramamurthy). (That’s a really odd mix.) While she deals with no longer being normal, Vincent and the gang will try to keep Vincent alive. As the executive producers preview points out, Agent Reynolds is trying to have Vincent killed but is facing some technical difficulties.
“Beauty and the Beast” airs Mondays at 9/8c on The CW.
