Re: Grimm, season 2 thread.

I want to see Nick happy with Juliette, but her memory loss may be the way out of the series for her.
Hank being finally clued in is going to be an advantage for Nick. He has a partner now that can help him fight. They should add that beat cop as well. I forget his name, the one that ate the cookie meant for Hank.

Re: Grimm, season 2 thread.

^^^ Sgt. Wu (played by Reggie Lee) - yeah, love his character. I really felt bad for him eating foam insulation and all that other crap there for a while. He's probably one of the most useful and entertaining second-tier characters I've seen in a genre show for quite some time. I suspect, however, that Hank will be this season's only mundane being let in on the secret. They don't want to have everyone in-the-know, which could cause all kinds of story-wrecking problems.

The other interesting thing I've noticed throughout the course of the series is the conditions under which Nick recognizes a Wessen and vice-versa.

Some Wessen instantly know when Nick is a Grimm as soon as Nick sees them for what they are. Other Wessen (like the actor-formely-playing-Jacob-from-Lost) don't seem to figure it out right away even after revealing their true nature. Then, in the opposite direction, you have Captain Renard who knows Nick is a Grimm, but Nick has never seen him in his true form. Is this due to the age/strength/purity/bloodline of the Wessen in question? Will Nick eventually see Renard for what he truly is? Not quite sure about this one. Anyone have any thoughts?

Re: Grimm, season 2 thread.

I think you're right about a royal being hard to detect by Nick. Renard is a prince, being the only one that could wake Juliette with a kiss. He must be able to well mask his powers and true nature.

Re: Grimm, season 2 thread.

Reynard is a bastard, literally according to Adalind's mother, and evidently HALF-Hexenbiest. Maybe that's he's only half lets him conceal it from Nick--that and being half-royal.

I am SO loving this show!!! Monroe and Rosalee? Fan-tas-tic, especially in the car with Nick's mom.

I am amazed at how well this show can continue the ongoing story lines, add to the mythology, have their "case of the week," AND add to the characterization of so many characters. This is what happens with great writers and the studio (or whomever) either backing them or staying out of their way. Would that more shows had this.

Their 17 year old neice/cousin no less... with the implication that the same had happened to her mother. Very dark, yeah.

Glad Hank's in on the secret - I was down on his character, but I think he's gonna turn out good. Should be interesting to see what happens with Juliette...

Re: Grimm, season 2 thread.

Poor Nick, Juliet is probably going to fall in love with Prince Renard the minute she lays eyes on him, because he gave her the magic kiss. Which wasn't his intent, he probably won't even be interested, but Nick is going to be furious, or at least curious...

And that will probably start the chain of events that leads to Nick figuring out who Renard really is. Why should Juliet just up and fall in love with the guy? Well besides being gorgeous, suave and built like a stallion I mean.

I had no idea they had so many West Virginia transplants in Oregon. Who knew?

Re: Grimm, season 2 thread.

Another decent episode, although kind of bland-ish and predictable. For the subject matter handled, no real sense of foreboding or consequence. It is that kind of vibe that turned me off from the show initially. If you're gonna deal with dark subjects, don't white picket fence it at the end with a paint-by-the-numbers course of events.

Warehouse 13 is camp, and knows it. Breaking Bad is dark, and knows it.

This show has got to make more of a decision in that regard I sometimes think.

Re: Grimm, season 2 thread.

They're going about as dark as I've seen on a network show. I'd rather they stay where they are than devolve into camp, and I doubt NBC would tolerate too much darker.

Hank fills in the role that Munroe used to fill (On a Vessen Hunt, Nick called Munroe). But with Rosalee, Munroe will have something else to keep his hands full.

Yeah, I could see Monroe and Rosalee turning into more of the information and research people, while Hank takes over helping take down the Vessen.

Re: Grimm, season 2 thread.

I just hope Rosalee survives through next week, as she looks like she's in for a bumpy ride (based on what the preview showed). I get the impression that Monroe has been on his own for quite some time and I wouldn't want to see him lose her by any stretch. They've become my favorite characters in this series so far.

Rosalee was contracted as a series regular for season 2. She'll live I think.

Re: Grimm, season 2 thread.

I'm sure the producers fully realize that they've got a winner in Munrosalie (dont blame me, I didnt make it up!) Which fills the romance quota nicely enough that Juliet better be worried...
