The wait for Grimm to return seemed like forever – let’s face it, it always seems to be forever! – and the show returned with a vengeance and a LOT of crazy new things. Let’s get at it!
OMG so that was Juliette in a platinum blonde wig?! Wait, what??!!! She was DEAD. How is she not dead?! What is happening?! What is this madness?! Poor Nick. His sanity is always in question, and now THIS?! WTF people. No one wants to believe him, of course, because last we saw Juliette, she was trying to kill everyone including and especially Nick because she’d become an evil Hexenbiest. Now she’s… no one knows. Juliette being alive is freaky enough!!
The Wesen Council being wiped out by the Black Claw… WOW. I did NOT see that one coming, and it’s downright scary. We’re so focused on Portland because that’s where Nick and crew are, but the Black Claw is a worldwide problem. Without the Wesen Council, what will happen around the world?!
The Black Claw sends someone to take out Xavier in his cell. It totally works, and maybe I should be more sympathetic, but he was jerk that could’ve gotten Monroe killed so NOPE. However, that whole fight was seen by a lot of people at the station, and everyone’s freaking out, so not good at ALL.
Finally Nick and Eve – the former Juliette – meet. She is now a cold, cold robot of a Hexenbiest. She remembers everything, but apparently has no feelings?? A test was set up for Nick, which he apparently passed, so he got another call from Meisner, promising more. And back at their compound/jail/whatever, “Eve” is happy to lock herself into her cell for the night. SHE IS SUPER FREAKY. Kudos to Bitsie Tulloch for yet another crazy characterization change. Her acting skills continue to amaze me.
