So “Grimm” returned last night with season 2. We had a bit of a recap from the end of Season 1, but I felt I probably should have watched some of those episodes again to remind me all that had happened.
Juliette remains in a coma, thanks to Adelaide’s spell. Worse than that, Monroe and Rosallee learn that the spell that Adelaide gave to Juliette will cause memory loss. The longer they delay, the more she may never remember . . . My thoughts here are that she’ll either not remember Nick at all, or more likely not remember all the strange things that happened over the past year to strain their relationship, especially his telling her about who he really is.
Nick, with the help of his not so dead mother, apprehended Kimura who came for the coins Nick had. Kimura was taken into custody, but not before letting it spill to the Captain that there are now two Grimms in town . . . Meanwhile, Nick’s mom explained Aunt Marie knew she was alive, but it was better for Nick that he didn’t, that nobody did. She was hunting down the men who killed his father and “her friend” who was in the car when it was blown up. So originally I was very suspicious of this. I thought what if this is the “friend” pretending to be Nick’s mom, to get to the coins or something else? However as the show went on, she seemed to just know too much to be a fake . . . I think?
Nick’s mom is pretty shocked to learn her son is friends with some monsters, and they with him. This will take getting used to for her. Later, Nick takes his mom to the trailer, and something bigger comes to light . . . much more important than the coins everyone was after. A local killing was not done by a normal monster, Nick’s mom identifies it as some terrible panther creature that the higher ups send out when things get serious. These are apparently worse than what was sent to kill him and Marie initially. We learn that the key Nick’s Aunt left him plays into it. She tells him this story that the original 7 knights, or Grimms, had these keys. They unlocked a secret treasure which they hid away, as whatever it was would shift the balance of power. The Grimm Knights worked for the Royal Families, and this kept the balance of power initially. Now it seems the royals are trying to get the power tipped in their favor and are probably looking for the treasure . . . (This all plays into the stories last season, with the rebel monsters and what not).
Elsewhere during the episode, the captain sought out Adelaide’s mom to get her to cure Juliette for him, he can’t let Nick leave town, which may happen if Juliette dies. The captain needs him . . . but we don’t know why. I believe he is part of one of the Royal Families perhaps? By the end of the show the nasty panther creature that killed some police guards earlier had lured Nick into a trap and was prepared to strike as “To Be Continued” showed on the screen.
