‘Beauty And the Beast’ Season 2: What About Tess and J.T.

Don’t Die on Me

Since the beginning of Beauty And the Beast in the fall of 2012, the focus – of course – has been on the relationship between Detective Catherine Chandler (series lead Kristin Kreuk) and Vincent Keller (series lead Jay Ryan); but what about the other would-be couple that has very slowly been developing on the show?

Who would that be? Well, none other than Tess (series regular Nina Lisandrello) and J.T. (series regular Austin Basis) obviously.

They may seem like the most unlikely pairing on the show, but after the kiss they shared at Thanksgiving and the rather awkward attempts by J.T. on Valentine’s Day, you have got to give the guy credit for at least trying, right?

After all, Tess has been through the ringer by first having a relationship with her married, former boss Joe Bishop (former series regular Brian White) and now feeling like a social pariah in the aftermath of breaking it off with him. But that doesn’t mean that the right guy isn’t out there for her. She just needs to look a little closer to home; and she sort of has.

That being said, though, I think it would behoove the writers of the show to pursue a serious relationship between Detective Tess Vargas and J.T. Forbes, as it would do both of them some good. And since they already spend plenty of time together thanks to their crazy connection because of their friendships with Catherine and Vincent, it only make sense.

What do you think? Do you want to see Tess and J.T. in a relationship or would you rather see them both end up with someone else? Please share your thoughts in our comments section below.

And remember, the next new episode of the second season of ‘Beauty And the Beast’ will air on The CW on Monday, February 24 at 8/7c.
