When we return, Catherine (Kreuk) has spent the interim obsessively searching for the absent Vincent (Jay Ryan), and when she finally catches him up, he doesn't remember her.
"It's going to be a different show this season," Kreuk warned. "There's a whole new structure to it. Catherine and Vincent are kind of re-finding each other through -- at least in the beginning of the season."
"For Catherine, first of all, he was her lifeline," she said. "So when she finds him again, she can almost have access to herself. It's like her life comes back"
"And she discovers there's complications," she said. "In that, then it becomes about how do they come back together?"
"So she's feeling love for him and frustration and a recognition that she's given up so much of her life for this one person and the struggle with that. And he's dealing with a whole other side of issues. But they have that strong connection, so they keep trying to find a way."
But Season 2 won't be just tortured romance for Detective Cat. In the Season 1 finale, it was revealed Cat's dad wasn't her dad -- and her real father is up to no good.
"Catherine's dad -- as everyone but her knows -- is a bad guy or at least seems like a bad guy, that's going to drive a bunch of the plot," Kreuk said. "The stakes are going to be really high and there's a lot more action. I'm fighting a lot more this year. So we're very much on a mission this season."
