  • One of my least favorites but Cathy looked good in the moo moo!

    This is one of my least favorite episodes of the first season. I wasn't really interested in the troubles and romance of the couple introduced in this episode. Where I cared about others this relationship didn't not strike me as interested and only proved it was just for this episode. No recurring characters so it diminished it more for me. Seems to me the writers just wanted to pit Vincent against some ninjas. Not enough insight into the bad guy or the good little couple. Only thing I liked about it was the wedding and how nice Catherine looks in moo moo. lol! That look between Vincent and Catherine spoke volumes.moreless

      Vincent: They have a lifetime together. Our time is always measured-minutes-seconds.

    • Master: May you enter this marriage with love and respect for one another. May your years together be blessed by children. Your love, the sum of your being, must be cherished until the end of your days. For love is truly the strongest of bonds. Yet for all its strength, love is also delicate like a Locus Flower and requires care. Let your courage to love serve as an inspiration to all who climb the highest mountain and cross the great waters in love's name.

      Vincent: All men are demons when their homes and loved ones are at risk.
