Iris (Lara Jean Chorostecki), a Bosnian immigrant, is arrested on the suspicion of killing a judge for deporting her brother.

Nevertheless, she continues on her own to discover that Iris is hiding a family secret and needs Vincent’s help. JT is concerned that Vincent risks exposure to Murifield by helping Cat, leading Cat to work out a way to communicate with Vincent without seeking him out.
About the Show
Catherine “Cat” Chandler (Kristin Kreuk, Smallville, Chuck) is a smart, no-nonsense homicide detective, who is haunted by her own tragic past. When she was a teenager, Cat witnessed the murder of her mother at the hands of two gunmen. Cat would have been killed too, but someone—or something—saved her. No one has ever believed her, but she knows it wasn’t an animal that attacked the assassins…though it was strange and terrifying, it was human.
Years have passed; and although she thinks about her mother every day, Cat is now strong and confident, a capable police detective working with her equally talented partner Tess Vargas (Nina Lisandrello, Nurse Jackie). The two women make a good team and have become close friends while working on countless homicide cases under the supervision of their tough-but-fair boss Joe Bishop (Brian White, The Shield, The Cabin in the Woods). Cat has also become close to another co-worker, the medical examiner Evan Marks (Max Brown, The Tudors, MI-5); and they’ve developed a fun, flirtatious relationship that could easily turn into something deeper—if Cat would let that happen. However, much to the concern of her younger sister Heather (Nicole Gale Anderson, Make It or Break It), Cat’s romantic inclinations tend toward bad boys.
While investigating a new case, Cat and Tess discover fingerprints that lead to a handsome doctor named Vincent Keller (Jay Ryan, Terra Nova), who was reportedly killed by enemy fire while serving in Afghanistan in 2002. Digging deeper, Cat learns that Vincent is actually still alive. For mysterious reasons that have forced him to live outside of traditional society, Vincent has been in hiding for the past ten years. With the help of his childhood friend, J.T. Forbes (Austin Basis, Life Unexpected), Vincent has been able to guard his terrible secret—when he is enraged, he becomes a terrifying beast, unable to control his super-strength and heightened senses. Cat is stunned when Vincent admits he was the “animal” who saved her the night of her mother’s murder. Vincent doesn’t admit the whole truth—he is emotionally tied to Cat and has been watching over her for years.Full Episode List

The Vampire Diaries co-creator Julie Plec says the most satisfying story to tell this past season was taking Elena from human to new vampire to emotionless, and back to feeling again. “We took her to dark, angry places, and as writers—and for Nina (Dobrev), too—it was such a fun year to explore all the different sides of Elena,” she admits to TV Guide.
