So “Grimm” aired it’s last Monday night episode last night. The show returns to its normal Friday time slot on September 28th.
So far I’ve really been enjoying season 2 a lot. What I’m liking is that each episode continues an overall storyline arc. The show started off that way in season 1, but somewhere along the way lost it and each show simply became a stand alone episode until the last few episodes. I know this is standard for a lot of cop or investigative shows, but I like the arc episode far more.
We finally have gotten a glimpse as to what Captain Renard is when he took the potion to kiss, and then save, Juliette from her cat induced coma. He turned into this bizarre green demon thing. Scary! We also have learned he is one of the royals, and his brother in France seems to be running things for their family. Renard has a spy who is filling him in on his brother’s plans. His brother is after the 7 keys that Nick’s aunt said the Grimms all hid long ago after using them to lock up a secret weapon/treasure so the royals couldn’t use it. Renard is working against his brother it seems, but we don’t know why. Is he good, or does he want the keys for himself? He definitely seems to be out to protect Nick for some reason.
Juliette came out of her coma after Renard used the potion formulated by Adelaide’s mom. However predictably it seems she remembers everything and one except Nick. In the latest episode she finally began having fragments of memories return about Nick, in a way. She remembered some of the Weson neighbors who came to her about Nick once, initially out of fear of him, so she contacted them. They have no idea about her memory issues, and when she questioned them they talked about how great Nick has been to them, given he’s a Grimm. Oops, they didn’t know she didn’t know that either! They tried to cover and say it means “a great guy for a cop,” but you could tell she wasn’t buying it. As Juliette was woken by a kiss from Renard, I also am wondering if this means she’ll fall in love with him when/if she sees him?
Finally Hank had to be let in on Nick (and Monroe and Rosalie’s) secrets after he thought he was losing his mind seeing all these humans change into monsters. He took the news fairly well, a lot better than Juliette did when Nick told her. Then again, Hank said this was easier to believe than him going crazy. Now how Juliette will take it for a second time remains to be seen. Something tells me since she doesn’t remember Nick at all, she’ll react even worse than she initially did.
