Beauty and the Beast‘s Catherine and Vincent might not want to pull away from that midseason finale-ending liplock, because a brand-new buzzkill is entering their orbit — and TVLine has an exclusive first look.
As first reported by TVLine, Heroes/Covert Affairs alum Sendhil Ramamurthy is joining the freshman CW drama on March 14 as Gabe Lowan, an ambitious Assistant District Attorney who “basically creates a task force specifically to hunt [Vincent],” EP Brian Peterson told us. “And Cat ends up on that task force, so she ends up smack dab in the middle of everything.”

Of course, within VinCat’s world, it seems that no one can ever be taken at face value, and that’s the case with ADA Lowan to be sure. Says Peterson, “We find out, as things unfold, that he and [police captain] Joe have a little bit different motivations in finding this thing.” EP Sherri Cooper previously teased the same twist, saying the ADA “wants to crack down on crime, and you think it’s because of his ambition — it would be great for his career if he could bring in New York’s newest menace — but we’ll reveal [the real reason] why.”
With Lowan lurking around the NYPD, Cooper said Ramamurthy’s character will prove to be “a great antagonist for Vincent and Catherine.”
