Kristin Kreuk and ‘Beauty of the Beast’ returns to television with season 2 on Monday night at 9 p.m. (spoiler alert)

Kreuk’s character Catherine Chandler hasn’t paid her bills for a while, and she’s constantly trying to Vincent, who is missing, Kreuk told Access Hollywood.  

“Tess and JT are both, at the top of the season, very much going, ‘You need to focus on your life. This man is gone. You need to focus on you ’cause you’re falling apart,'” said Kreuk. 

Chandler is “not even doing work anymore. She’s got Tess taking care of all the work. She’s so focused on it. She has nothing else.”

But after they find Vincent, he’s less of a “bad boy” and more “reprogrammed. 

Chandler deals with the new Vincent.

“I think that it’s kind of like a thing that she’s moving through, although she does love like a crazy person, but I think that for her, it’s more about — there’s this man, who’s the person that she put everything into and she held all of her crap together to try and just find him and when he looks like the person that she knew, he feels like the person that she knew, but he’s not, and she has this moment of being able to emotionally like let go and release all this stuff, but it’s with a man who is so different,” said Kreuk.

Additionally, the FBI enters the picture in the first episode of the season.

“It’s complicated,” she said.
