Great episode
8 November 2008 | by hekshuisSee all my reviews

This episode is just wonderful !! It is my favorite one. You can feel the pain Catharine is in losing her mother when she was a child and the doubt about her relationship with Vincent.She wants to share her secret with her friends but she made a promise not telling anyone about the tunnels and the people who live there. She wants here life to be a happy life a "normal"life and she choose a complicated one. But in the end of this episode she must admit that her love for Vincent is everything,and she needs nothing more. Even after 20 years this series Beauty and the Beast is still fascinating,Linda and Ron are great actors.
