Is There Such A Thing As Having ‘Too Much Beautiful?’

Catching The Catch on ABC, I’ve had to shake my head more than once when I’ve looked at Mireille Enos. In the first episode, she glanced a smile at fiance and professional con artist Benjamin Jones, played by Parenthood star Peter Krause. There was too much beauty on her face at one time. How can someone have that much beauty on one face?

It’s an interesting love affair I have for her. When she doesn’t have any makeup on, I can see the real beauty that lies beneath. But when her face has color and her lashes tease, she does this magical thing that just kicks you in the gut. And when you can’t breathe from a kick in the gut, everything’s beautiful.

But when she’s mad, you know it. That’s one awesome trick she pulls off nicely. When her face goes solid and her eyes stare at you with the coldness of a woman scorned, hide! Find a place stronger than stone. She’ll cut you down with a look and you’ll never recover. Your heart will be broken if you’re ever on the receiving end of her disdain.

If you haven’t caught up yet, The Catch has an interesting twist. She’s a professional investigator who is the best at getting the con. But this time, the con got her. Played her beautifully from the first moment they met when he got her to come to him. As they explain in the show, that’s how a con gets you. They make you do all the giving, so they never have to ask.

What an interesting concept? She came to him to chase down his business. But, he turned her down as a client to keep the door open. He didn’t initiate a sex life with her. He sat back and relaxed while she climbed on top of him. Wow! This guy is good!

Then, they go into how he didn’t even ask her to marry him. When she flashes back through that conversation, she realizes that she actually asked him to marry her. Whoa! The professional investigator dropped her guard and fell for the best con ever. No wonder she gave him over a million dollars and of course, that’s about the time he split.

But, that’s just the beginning of the story…
