‘Beauty And the Beast’ (Season 3): Fighting Liam

Liam Beauty and the Beast

Since the beginning of the new season of Beauty And the Beast this summer, Vincent and Catherine have been fighting against a foe that was much more powerful than any other they have faced together. A foe that seemed to be just as powerful as Vincent in strength, speed and ability.

On their fated wedding day they finally came face-to-face with him: the man known as Liam, the mystery man who has been on an international killing spree, taking out anyone who has even a trace of the serum within their bodies, which was used to give them superhuman abilities.

The ultimate reason behind his murderous rampage is, as yet, unclear; but one thing is certain if Vincent can’t stop him, no one can. And so far, nothing Vincent – or Cat and Tess for that matter – have done can even bring him down for more than a few seconds. The man has been beaten down by Vincent and shot multiple times by both Cat and Tess, but nothing seems to work.

And if last night’s episode is any indication, he is a beast just like Vincent; but that isn’t all – he seems to have even more advanced superhuman abilities than Vincent or any of the other beasts that came out of Muirfield.

So, how in the hell are Vincent and Cat going to bring him down?

From what we’ve been able to see so far – there doesn’t seem to be anyway to bring Liam down; and that is more terrifying than anything else. With all of their other foes, Vincent had the upper-hand against all of them. But that is clearly not the case with Liam. He is, for all intents and purposes, an unstoppable killing machine; and he won’t stop until his last victim is gone for good.

This will spell tragedy for JT, as he seems to be the last victim on the list; and no matter how many times he is moved from one safe house to the next, Liam will assuredly find him. After all, he has found every single one of his victims to date no matter what. It will simply be a matter of time before he gets JT alone without any back-up or help.

There are only three episodes left in the show’s summer run (its third season on the air) so there isn’t much time left for the team to figure out a way to somehow bring Liam down; and given what we’ve seen so far, I can’t imagine anything short of cutting of his head (much like how to take down a vampire) will do the trick.

What do you think of the “big bad” this year? Do you think that Vincent and Cat have any chance at all of stopping him? Do you think there is anywhere safe for JT to be hidden? Please share your thoughts below.

The next new episode of ‘Beauty And the Beast’ will air on Wednesday, August 20 at 8/7c on The CW.
