From TV Fanatic:
The scar may be gone but, thankfully, Sendhil Ramamurthy’s Gabe is not. No spoilers in how he cheats death in the season premiere but Kern teased: “There’s definitely a romance in store for Gabe in the course of the season.” As for saving Gabe’s life, Kern said it wasn’t easy. “When I was hired they showed me the season finale and he was shot 19 times in the chest. I said, ‘So isn’t that a challenge!?’” Kern also said that Gabe will spend of his time during season 2 trying to make amends to Cat for what he had a hand in last season. (Beauty and the Beast kicks off Season 2 on October 7 at 9/8 on The CW.) Source.
