Grimm, my take - Part 1


The Final Chapter
(writing that hurts)


So we're down to the wire and it's been an amazing series so far. The concept on how this show weaves the supernatural world into their investigations is very intriguing. Supernaturals on this show are called wesen which are mythical creatures. The idea that there's a completely other existence, most humans are clueless about, is fascinating. 

The main detective's name is Nick but he is also the Grimm.  He joins forces with Monroe, a Blutbad, to stop other wesens that take the law into their own hands. But it seems like rarely are there any bad humans. Go figure.

This season, Nick had to go into hiding from the captain since they are on opposing teams. Not that they haven't always been, but in the past they’ve managed to work together. Now their interests are, once again, clashing. Being that Hank is Nick's partner, he of course defends him but the captain sees that as a betrayal and turns on Hank as well. After Nick gets help in performing a spell to look like Sean, he ruins the captain’s present and future plans. After that he and the Sean were forced into a truce.

Captain Sean Ranard is a Zauberbiest and his narcissism has reached an all new high. I seriously thought his ego could not get any bigger. He has betrayed allies and has turned on the best detectives he's ever had. He's killed with no remorse and has done nothing to stop his mind controlling daughter. He only cares about power and being the next mayor. But even after all that he's done, Sean is one of my favorite characters. He is so deliciously evil.

So much trickery has occurred over the seasons that the once lovable couple, Juliette and Nick, are unfortunately no more. They can thank Adalind's, a Hexenbiest, for that. A few seasons back, she performed witchcraft to look like Juliette and inadvertently slept with Nick and wound up pregnant.


Ironically, Juliette turned into a Hexenbiest some time afterwards. Through a spell she pretended to be Adalind, but how exactly she became wesen has yet to be explained. No matter, it happened and when Juliette turned she became a cold, ruthless killer therefore ending her and Nick's relationship. Presently, because of some special wooden stick, no one knows anything about, her life was spared and she may once again be human. So will she and Nick get back together? That's a hard one since Juliette did kill Nick’s mother and he is in love with Adalind, the mother of his son.

I love the relationship between Monroe and Rosalee, a Fuchsbau. They may be wesen but their relationship is the most normal on that show. I wonder what their baby would look like. Maybe not. Yikes!

As much as I enjoy this show, I wish Nick had more abilities or at least they should more of them. I really don’t see how he is much different than the average man. Sometimes it seems like he has enhanced hearing but what else? Yes, he can see wesen, but so can any other human if the wesen chooses to reveal themselves. I need some clarification. Also, I do not care for Nick and Adalind's relationship. Although, I like Adalind's wicked character, she started all this mess to begin with. I know Juliette killed Nick’s mom but I'd still rather see them back together. I say if Nick can forgive Adalind he can forgive Juliette. Hey maybe the special stick will cure Nick’s love for Adalind.

Overall: interesting show!

That’s my update in Grimm. I will reach out again later. Thanks for stopping by.
