So on the latest episode of “Grimm,” the team managed to get ahold of Nick and cure him, however it seems that there are some residual effects from the poisoning. Nick keeps going in and out of these comatose death like states, and at odd times. At one point it was while sleeping, and Juliet thought he had died. The state came on while he was awake as well, when he was getting emotional after overhearing a truth that was kept from him. I’m not sure what this will mean in the long run for Nick. It definitely can’t be good.
It turns out one of the guys Nick attacked in the bar ended up dying. Renard fortunately took the hard drive with the security footage from the bar, but he was spotted there with Juliet and Rosalee. They had to come up with a cover, and tried to keep this news from Nick. He eventually found out and felt huge guilt. He wanted to turn himself in, until Renard showed him the footage he had stolen. On it the guy attacked Nick with a knife, so Renard said in a bizarre way it was self defense. Yeah, right . . . whatever makes Nick shut up at this point! Something tells me like Nick’s zombie sickness, this won’t go away so easily either. Nick, Hank and the others were all spotted at a family’s home where they caught Nick. Something tells me the father who saw them all will eventually be this story’s undoing. This will all catch up to them.
Renard’s brother is still MIA. Renard set something up to make it look like his brother was killed in a car accident. I wasn’t clear if he really ordered a hit on his brother, or was covering? Either way, his mother called to talk to him and congratulate him on finally getting rid of his wretched step-brother. She said they’d talk soon. Hmmmmmm . . .
Over in Europe, Stefania continued to lead Adelind in the nasty ceremony to get her powers back. Was it just me, or does Stefania’s voice sound a lot like the voice of Renard’s mother on the phone?
“Grimm” finally returned this week for its third season. Just like last season, it’s been sooooooo long since we last saw it that I had trouble remembering what was going on! Mainly with Adeline’s story more than anything.
Nick, having been zombified, was put in a coffin and was being flown back to Paris with Renard’s brother. While Renard and Hank were trying to stop them, Juliette, Monroe and Rosalee were coming up with a potion to stop all the other infected zombies. They did, but worry by time they get to Nick that it could be too late for him. Also the fact that he’s a Grimm may cause the toxins to react differently him.
They were correct about Nick. Nick woke up in a rage and caused the plane to crash! We saw the pilots and the voodoo guy were dead or dying, but Nick walked out alive. Hmmm, where is Renard’s brother? Hank got the news of the crash and they all went searching for Nick, whose gone on a rampage in some little town near the crash.
Over in Europe, Adeline and the gypsy woman killed Adeline’s other friend. They tore her to pieces, put her heart in a box, and buried her parts in a field for some kind of spell to see if Adeline would be “accepted.” I can’t recall, but I think this was an attempt for her to get her powers back in exchange for the kid? Whatever happened seemed to work, as these weird green spirits came forth and went up her nose.
We still don’t know who the father of Adeline’s kid is though, unless we learned last season and it’s been so long that I forgot!
Previews at the end showed some upcoming episodes. It looks like Nick gets back to normal, but that the experience has left him with enhanced powers somehow.
So “Grimm” moved to Tuesday last night with an alien inspired episode. I kinda feel like with this week and last week’s “monsters” that the show is running out of ideas and is really reaching. A volcano monster and an alien-like creature? I worry what is next . . . Oh wait, the spoilers below say what it is!
In spite of reaching with the monsters, the storylines are still good, and the show has been given a third season. That’s good, because there are only 4 episodes left and I doubt we will be getting a lot of answers. Nick finally shared the key with Monroe, who figured out it figured into an old map . . . a treasure map. But what was buried? Nick went to Renaurd who didn’t know, but had heard rumors. The knights templar, the ancestors of the Grimm, were the ones who betrayed the royals and hid the treasure. He said it had to be important enough that they wanted it kept from everyone. He said some say it’s the cross and nails used to crucify Christ, others say it’s Mohamed’s sword, then there were other artifacts related to various prophets. I wonder, based on the odd shape of the key, if it leads to the Ark? The key actually looks like the two tablets of the ten commandments . . .
Finally Juliette’s memory came back, and she went to Monroe. I think it’s safe to say her entire memory didn’t come back though. She seems to have remembered enough about Nick, that she loves him, and that he told her he was a Grimm. She clearly doesn’t remember the whole explanation, or thinking he was nuts and needed help. I can’t remember if she saw Monroe’s true self? I know Nick planned to have him show it to her . . . She went to Monroe and asked about Grimms, he told her it was someone who could see into the heart of darkness. She remembered Nick saying the same thing. She wants him back, but fears he doesn’t want her anymore. Monroe assured her that is not the case.
Next week Nick gets kissed by a witch, and only Juliette can save him! Looks like a reunion episode to me. Spoilers for the next two episodes below . . .
So it’s been awhile since I blogged about “Grimm.” While I’ve been enjoying the show as usual, the storylines slowed down a bit, so I didn’t have too much to say. This week’s episode picked the pace up again. There are only four more episodes left, and the show now moves to Tuesdays.
After drinking the potion, Juliette no longer lusted for Renard, but she still didn’t recall Nick. However slowly she began to be haunted by him. It started off as what looked like a ghost in her house, and over the past few episodes grew more solid. This week Nick was all over, she couldn’t escape him. However they were nothing but short fragments of memory. One of the women involved in Nick’s cases that she had to translate spanish for recognized something in Juliette and has been helping her. Juliette had to pick one memory, one Nick to focus on and block the others out. When she did this, it seemed her memories slowly came back. By the end of the show she had remembered Nick proposing to her! However based on the previews for next week, I think she may remember something else. We saw her asking Monroe to tell her what a Grimm was!
Renard and Nick, along with Hank, have been getting along surprisingly well since the truth came out. Their whole story has been pretty much stuck. Again next week finally has things moving forward, with Nick showing Monroe the key, and Monroe figuring out what it is. We know Renard also made a copy of it as well.
Finally Adeline has basically been stuck with some creepy old gypsy lady in Europe for weeks now. We finally found out what she wants, and I guessed right! She’s willing to sell her royal baby, not for money, but for the return of her powers! A woman told her she didn’t know if it could be done, but Adeline says thats the only deal she’ll make . . . otherwise she might as well abort the kid. Everyone gasped at her arrogance. I’m not sure what they expect to do with this kid? Lay claim to the throne one day? Use it in some black rites?
Spoilers Below for when “Grimm” moves to Tuesdays next week!
It’s literally been forever since the last episode of “Grimm,” but the gang finally returns this week. Several other shows also return too, so I’m looking forward to some good TV hopefully!
March 8th 9pm – FACE OFF
NICK MUST FACE THE CONSEQUENCES OF LEARNING THE TRUTH ABOUT JULIETTE — After Nick (David Giuntoli) learns about Juliette (Bitsie Tulloch) and Captain Renard (Sasha Roiz), he must deal with the consequences. Things get even more complicated when Nick is called to investigate his own crime. Meanwhile, the search for the key intensifies as Captain Renard finds Nick’s trailer and makes a surprising alliance. With Rosalee’s (Bree Turner) help, Monroe (Silas Weir Mitchell) informs Nick that they might be able to stop what’s going on with Renard and Juliette before it goes too far. Elsewhere, Wu (Reggie Lee) responds to a bizarre shooting at Nick and Juliette’s house. Claire Coffee also stars.
March 15th 9pm – NATURAL BORN WESEN
THE WESEN COMMUNITY IS IN TURMOIL WHEN THE CODE OF HONOR IS BROKEN – The Wesen code of honor comes into question when Nick (David Giuntoli), Hank (Russell Hornsby) and Monroe (Silas Weir Mitchell) discover a series of bank robberies with Wesen using true natures as their disguises. Meanwhile, Juliette (Bitsie Tulloch) finds herself tormented by faint, slowly returning memories that cause her to question her mental state. Sasha Roiz, Reggie Lee, Bree Turner and Claire Coffee also star.
A couple of spoiler releases for some upcoming shows on NBC. In this bunch . . .
-On “Parenthood,” Christina goes through surgery on the same day as Max’s big speech. Oh no!
-On “Grimm,” this is the post Halloween episode, and it seems Captain Renard’s obsession with Juliette may go to “the next level.”
-On “Revolution,” there is no show this week because of the debates. On the next show, we get a look at Aaron’s back story. This show kinda is becoming “Lost” in a lot of ways . . .
-On ” The New Normal,” two spoiler releases, one for what looks to be a humorous Halloween episode. Bryan plans a “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” themed Halloween!
I have to say I’m really loving Season 2 of “Grimm.” They’ve really been doing an excellent job of tying each episode into the other, and continuing a storyline arc. They didn’t do that so well last season, which is why I started getting a little bored with the show.
I’m really loving Hank being on Team Grimm. I loved Hank and Monroe bonding the other week, and Hank asking Monroe to change for him. When Nick took him to the trailer I was dying over his reaction to all the weapons. I’m also glad that Hank knows it was Monroe who saved him from the Ogre.
Even though I knew it was coming, I can’t stand the whole Juliette and Renard obsession after the kiss. The trailers make is seem that Renard is really gunna go a little nutty over her. I hope Juliette isn’t going to fall for him as well. This whole story will probably be what exposes Renard to Nick though. I was also slightly annoyed over the misleading teasers of Juliette remembering, when in fact it turned out all to be a dream Nick was having.
The teasers are also showing the return of Adaline the Hexenbeast. She wants to know who killed her mom, and suspects it is Nick. She also seems to be getting into bed with Renard’s brother. We haven’t seen too much of him as of late, or what he’s up to other than trying to get those keys. My guess is Adaline’s return will also bring Nick’s mom back to town. The teasers are showing Adaline with her powers back too . . . I don’t know if that’s also just misleading or not. If she has her powers back, it won’t be good for anyone.
I can’t wait for the Halloween episode in two weeks to see how they tackle the story of La Lorena. I’m not sure how this will work in Portland, as it’s a Southwest/Mexican ghost story of a woman who drowned her kids . . . but it should be interesting!

Guest_2794 : Yes, they are jumping the shark, at least based on the previews it doesn't look to be too much longer with Pan, but then again promos seem to be misleading anymore.
Donna : Yes, I was seriously disgusted that the Pan story wasn't over. I can't take another week of that child's eyebrows, let alone this shark-jumper story.
Guest_2794 : I really want to say something about OUAT based on your comment and what we learned at the end, but I don't want to spoil it for anyone.

Guest_4749 : Grey's anatomy is frustrating on so many levels...

Dustin : I agree, Jane can spin this. But at LEAST Jane and Grayson got together!
Dustin : Actually liked last nights Agents of Shield for once!
Guest_2154 : Jane's secret wasn't revealed at all she could spin that anyway she wants, they left anything good until 1 minute at the end hate it
Dustin : Thank god they are going back to Storybrook at least partially next week!
Dustin : As if I haven't been busy enough with work, now I've gotten sick with what's going around this area. I will get posts up soon! Probably have to do quick thoughts on all the shows in one large post at this point!
Guest_273 : Well someone outs her secret model Jane makes the most sense
Dustin : Was that Model Jane that came back in the previews?
