Heather calls Catherine, but Catherine is busy at the moment driving fast to save Vincent; but Heather needs Catherine to be at a very important speech. Heather mentions that her and Catherine need to talk and that the topic will be about their father. Some Yakuza looking person steps out of a car and walks up to Vincent, wanting Vincent to look him in the face. Catherine shows up and somehow takes out a few guards who were armed, which is pretty unbelievable. Vincent wants to clearly kill the Yakuza guy because he’s the one who turned Vincent into a beast to begin with; Yakuza explains why he decided to turn Vincent in to a beast and mentions how he’s a valuable weapon. Vincent is acting pretty cocky and doesn’t look pleased to be hand cuffed to a chair. Vincent goes beast mode and destroys the hand cuffs as if they were only plastic to begin with, the guards who were with Yakuza go down one by one. Vincent starts walking towards Yakuza, but Catherine gets in the way and ends up messing him up. Vincent had a chance to kill Yakuza, but Catherine ruined everything and that what thinking irrational gets you. Now Vincent is trying to attack Catherine, but J.T. and Gabe save the day with a tranquilizer of some sort. Vincent turns back into a human, Catherine starts getting sentimental and all that bull shit. Vincent asks Catherine who she is (plot twist) and she seems pretty upset about it.
Gabe wants to stay in the room with Catherine, in case when Vincent gets violent once he wakes up; Catherine has chip on her shoulder and declines. J.T. admits Gabe sucks, but it would be better to have him because they’d be safer. Vincent wakes up and is confused of where he is, Vincent looks at Catherine, but doesn’t remember who she is at all.

Reynolds mentions to another man who a female cop got in the way of Vincent at the time he was supposed to kill Yakuza. Catherine arrives at her father’s tribute, Heather is happy to see her. Catherine wants to know what Heather wanted to talk about, but Heather wants to save it for later, for at the moment it’s not a good time to talk about it. Catherine walks outside and Bob Reynolds comes out of no where to say that he’s sorry for her lost. Catherine talks to Bob about her father and the current case she’s working on. Bob mentions how Catherine’s father would speak about her a lot. Bob knows where Vincent is. J.T. is still dealing with Vincent back at their place, they’re looking around the place.

At the tribute for Catherine’s father she receives a call from J.T. and he tells her how Vincent left. J.T. looks injured in some way, Catherine tells her sister Heather that she’s sorry and leaves her father’s tribute.
Catherine is surprised that Vincent tranquilized J.T., J.T. believes that Vincent’s mind is loss and that he’s not the same anymore; that he might never remember them at all again. Catherine finds an iage of Mr. Yakuza and wonders if Yakuza will be a lead to find out how Vincent lost his memory. Nina arrives in Gabe’s office, Gabe closes his laptop due to reflexes. Gabe asks if Nina has ever seen Yakuza, she says she hasn’t and Gabe mentions that’s the problem he doesn’t know who he is and nobody else does either. Gabe finds a match to Yakuza’s identity, it turns out that Yakuza’s name is Lee Zhao; they find out why Vincent is after Yakuza. Vincent is preparing himself to go and hunt down Yakuza, Vincent calls Condor and asks him who Catherine is. Vincent is starting to get soft during the job, and Condor tells him that clearly. Vincent is back on the hunt and ready to kick Yakuza’s ass.
Vincent is having flash backs of his past with Yakuza, Vincent is at the right location to find Yakuza. Catherine obviously followed him, J.T. tells her that she shouldn’t get in Vincent’s way and she knows that she shouldn’t and won’t. J.T. found out that Vincent’s hemoglobins can change, meaning that he can easily track another person easily. Vincent is now the ultimate hunter and Yakuza should be fearing for his life.

Catherine isn’t worried, but she’s happy that they’ll get to fall in love with each other again; Vincent doesn’t seem to believe in that as much as she does. Catherine wants to confirm that he believes in them also, though it seems that Vincent has skeletons in his closet that he hasn’t brought up yet. Catherine is getting emotional about the whole situation wondering why they’re after Vincent, Vincent clearly doesn’t know either and says he can’t answer her questions. Catherine doesn’t want Vincent to go, Vincent goes in and kisses Catherine though he has no proper memories of her.
