    I just caught it tonight...I was way too tired to see it Friday. Nick's got some Grimm moves...nice flips. The dinner scene was awkwardly funny and a bit uncomfortable. I loved that they sent a message to the Reapers by sending their heads back. It's like waking up with a horse head in your bed.

    Yeah another great episode. The dinner scene was fun, although I do wish he would just tell Juliet and Hank, but then I never like the whole keeping things secret aspects of these kinds of stories. The whole heads in a box scene was pretty badass, but I'm wonder how much it's going to come back to bite Nick because the Reaper dude at the end look very pissed.

    He looked a little confused to me.

    Grimm's fall debut may be in August, so NBC can take advantage of the Olympics audience.

    Fine by me, although it just means all those shows that are on demand will have more competition.

    I like watching the Olympics but it sure screws up the tv schedule. Sure Grimm'll start early but that means a few more reruns during the season.

    Finale rumors (not a spoiler due to that "may" wiggle word - yeah right).
    If they going for a for-real death, Hank is the obvious candidate, with Wu stepping in as Nick's partner. If it's a fake-out to be magically rescinded in S2, Juliet should watch her back.

    You think they'd waste a fakeout death on Miss "no one remembers I'm here" Juliet?

    And what if they pull a Bashir?

    She/s been dead and replaced for months pulling into question the actions and choices of the actress for months?

    Hank and Juliet should have an affair.

    Get caught.

    Then Nick feeds them to something.

    He has to spend the rest of his life covering it up from week to week.

    3 seasons later he goes to jail and it's Oz.

    Just 42 minutes of Vessen on Vessen gay sex inbetween constant murderings.

    Hank/Juliet would certainly solve the girlfriend problem. But I'd prefer if Juliet "die" in the season finale by some magical means which would allow her to be "unexpectedly" resurrected sometime next season as a Wessen (or some other category of critter, heretofore unknown), to the shock and horror of all, including poor Nick.

    The love spell could be "mostly" explained away as weird chemistry...

    And Blondy's vessenness cancelled by Grimm Blood?

    That's close.

    But have we actually seen "magic"?

    How do they cloak, and how does Nick see thought it, even on film?

    Yeah, that's been one of my biggest questions about the world of Grimm. How exactly are the Wesen hiding themselves form regular humans.

    Monroe talked about that in one of the earlier episodes. Basically he said normal people couldn't see because it was too outside their frame of reference. I hated that line of reasoning, but it could be retconned a bit with something like a worldwide cloaking spell. Sort of like what the Doctor did with the Tardis key so that no one would really notice Jack, Martha and himself.

    That's the same ratass excuse they use in Buffy and Superman.

    Speaking of Buffy, anyone else notice a significant increase in the Buffy vibe this show's been exuding the past few episodes? Between the Scooby gang feel of the interactions between Nick, Monroe and Rosalie, the humorous awkward dinner banter between Nick and Monroe, and the way the show has been setting up its baddies and having some of them fail miserably and be reduced to mere mortal status like Adalind was, it feel to me like the producers who previously worked on Buffyverse shows are definitely channeling their past experiences. I hope they continue to do this and go all in with what they're setting up.

    What happens when a Wessen is autopsied? Don't the medical examiners notice that the bodies aren't quite human? Would they be so in denial they'd fail to notice.

    ^If Monroe's explanation is correct. Yes, they wouldn't, and couldn't notice.
