Also can I just say that I LOVE how SENSIBLE AND SMART AND REALISTIC CHARACTERS ACT? CAN I?
How they handled the jealousy scene? BRILLIANT AND REALISTIC.
Nick taking time to explain where he is going, prove that Hank is going there to, etc, to Juliette? BRILLIANT.
Also I am VERY interested in Ariel's backstory. The show REALLY left a lot to be told about it for latter times - how her mother died, what is that tattoo, how her father got the scars, why is she obsessed with grimms, etc.
I keep wondering if Juliette is something other than human herself. Perhaps Grimms are unable to see the other side of creatures if they're in love with them. Maybe Aunt Marie's gasped warning to Nick about staying away from her was more ominous than we realized.
Especially when you consider that out of all of them Juliette is more closed off than any of them. We never truly know what she's thinking. I was sure it might have come out when she asked him to pull the car over. And there's this: Nick's boss knows who and what he is, and wants to keep him under his thumb. (P.S. why hasn't Nick figured *him* out yet?)
Copper is an excellent electrical conductor. Not sure why it would benefit the dragons though.
Juliette was awesome this episode. I loved the fact that writers found a way for her actually to participate in her own rescue instead of Monroe just rescuing her. That was awesome.
Also Ariel is an awesome addition to cast. I hope we see her more than once.
I think Grimm's "Dragons" did dragons a whole lot more justice than recent far less than stellar dragon "portrayals" (*cough*supernatural*cough*)
Overall a solid 5/5
oh and i bet Baldwin will show up again and will turn out to be in cahoots with our own fav dictator-to-be captain Renard and will turn out to be a creature.
i agree 100% on Hank, and creatures running away, that is so unsatisfying! are they having club meetings of Grimm survivors or sth?
as for copper, well i guess it the treasures of today for these dragons, they look good, can be found in all sorts of shapes and sizes plus they aren't cheap and can be used for multiple purposes, but you are right, they should have explained it instead of us speculating.
i am so liking where this show is going and that Nick is Grimming out instead of walking and defeating the creatures accidentally or them running away. on the other hand, i am sorry but dragons could have been WAY cooler, it would also help if the final fight between Nick and daddy dearest (aka big depressed papa dragon) would last a little longer with a little more exhibition of Nick's Grimm skills and also a little more lit up (pun intended), honestly it was a little messy and clustered-no glory at all.
about Juliette, seriously, Nick dump her already, and find some creature hottie (just not the spit cracker dragon chick). Juliette is boring, her eyes are set way too far apart which makes her look weird and she looks like she is older than Nick.
Monroe's full name is Eddie Monroe, Monroe is the last name.
Someone said this last week and after this episode I totally agree: "Grimm" may have some of the elements of a police procedural, but at its core it's an urban fantasy a la Rob Thurman novels and the like. The messier endings with some of the bad guys not getting caught and punished at the end of each episode just goes with the territory.
The only thing that disappointed me about this episode was that they made Ariel so evil/crazy right away. With her chemistry with Nick, I think it would have been more interesting to keep her more ambigious for the time being - because she knows about and appeals to the Grimm side of Nick her presence would have been another messy shade to the problems he and Juliette are currently having.
Who the heck is Eddie?! I think you mean Monroe.
