First up, “Grimm” was renewed back in March, so we will be seeing the show again. NBC, as well as all the networks, have been dropping the axe on many shows today, and first details of the new fall line-up are coming out. All the official releases and schedules will come next week. Fingers crossed for “Parenthood” and “Nashville!”
I have still been watching and enjoying Grimm, and wanted to get a quick post up before tonight’s episode discussing my thoughts on the show so far. So let’s get started!
So if you were hoping to see Mama Grimm and the demon-child back, that won’t happen until next season according to the writers, who have put that out on social media and various interviews. I’m a bit miffed that we went through all of that for no resolution this year!
I have really been enjoying the addition of Trouble/Theresa to the show. I really feel she may be Nick’s sister, they just don’t know it yet. Nick’s mom could have been pregnant when she was “killed” and then went into hiding. Not wanting to subject an infant to life on the run, maybe she gave it up? She couldn’t go back and give it to Aunt Marie, as that would clearly tip people off that she wasn’t dead. One thing they’s really have to explain, or just ignore all together, is the power situation. Initially Nick only got his powers when Aunt Marie died, and I assume she got them when Nick’s mom died. Initially it was only one Grimm per family it seemed, but Nick’s mom is back and they both have their powers.
The one thing that is really bugging me is the entire dropped storyline with Nick, the Voodoo death/zombification, and how it changed him. It seems like that went no where. Last week Trouble did tell Nick he looked like he really needed some sleep. I am hoping that is a tease that the storyline hasn’t just been forgotten.
The final shot last week revealed yet another one of those keys, and in Portland. How has Portland become the Grimm/Wesson capital of the world?
