So I do believe almost all the shows I watch have had their finales . . . Ahhhhh! Actually no, “Game of Thrones” has ONE more episode left. “The Big C” is still going on, but this season has annoyed me to no end that I’ve pretty much lost interest. Perhaps with nothing on, that will be enough to spark it. Otherwise it’s a wait until “Drop Dead Diva,” “True Blood” and “Army Wives” start back up. There is also the guilty pleasure that is “Big Brother” and ABC’s new lawsuit inspired version “The Glass House.” Oh and TNT’s “Falling Skies” also returns in June! It seems Summer won’t be that vacant after all!
So first up, “Awake” ended last night, and it’s not getting another season. I missed the last 2 episodes, but plunged into the finale. I was so lost, and I don’t think it was because I missed a few episodes. It was just bizarre! In both worlds it was a race to nail the dirty captain (who was dealing heroine with her partner that was tasked with killing Britton). As usual, the clues in each world led him to solve the case. But at the end of the show, the worlds seemed to merge. The doctors continued to stress the other world was a dream, and the one they were in was reality. The show ended with Britton finding himself sleeping in his bed, waking up without a wrist band on . . . and both his wife and son were alive! WTF ?!?!?!?! I’m so confused! I guess we’ll never get any real answers! Where would the show have even gone after that? I guess they’d have to explain what in the hell was going on! Was he dreaming the entire time? Was it some bizarre premonition of what was to come?
On “Grimm,” I was confused by much of this finale as well. A discussion has already occurred in the shoutbox about this, but I’ll just recap. Adelaide set out to get revenge on Nick and Juliette, but really Nick. She tainted some cat with a potion, and the cat scratched Adelaide. This caused her to become ill. Nick finally had to tell her the whole truth about him and the monsters, but she thought he was the sick one who needed help. She passed out before Monroe could reveal himself to her, and she was taken to the hospital. Monroe and his gal pal worked to come up with an antidote to the scratches. Meanwhile a strange woman began tracking the man who killed Nick’s parents. He was back to get those damn coins from Nick. They faced off in Nick’s house, and the mystery woman dropped in to help get rid of the guy. As Nick had his gun aimed on her, she revealed that she was his mother! Meanwhile at the hospital Juliette woke up . . . with a big set of cat eyes!
Okay I guessed fairly early on that the woman was Nick’s mother. This brings up the question as to where his father is? Also were both parents Grimms, or just one? It seemed that when his parents died, the Aunt inherited the powers, then finally Nick. Nick only began to see things when his aunt was near death. But I think this idea was later abandoned as in other stories it seems there is no one Grimm, but many Grimm . . . some who were working with those royal monsters to keep the races separate.
Also if it was so easy to turn Juliette into a monster, why didn’t Adelaide do it to herself? Or can’t she? Is she immune after tasting a Grimm’s blood? Or has Juliette not been turned, but something else is going on with her?
So many questions! NBC has been teasing that Grimm will return in “late summer,” before the usually mid-late September debuts.
