Grimm > Grimm Review: Return to Sender > Comments Page 2
What happens when Nick meets other Grimms? Will they try to kill the Beavers and Monroe? I think that is a great story waiting in the wings.
Surprised it hasn't been mentioned that we learned something about the Reapers - they're made, not born. Not sure whether this means that they're simply an order of Grimm-hunting wesen, or they're physically changed from one 'phenotype' to another (so a Blutbad, say, would lose some hair and grow scales). Either way, it's interesting.
@KansasGuest - You've got a point RE: the fight scenes. I sort of like the hectic style in which they're shot, but in this case I had to skip back (twice!) to work out who kicked who. There's something to be said for clarity.
The Eisbieber's name is Bud, by the way. And yeah, I've grown rather fond of him as well. :)
One observation - in fairy tales, it's usually goats that go up against the bridge troll. I guess they decided to change the animal to beavers due to their more amiable nature and association w/awesome construction. Makes sense, and the character of Nick's beaver friend (you know what I mean - what is his name?) is so earnest, hopeful & brave, you can't help but be won over. The final scene was a hoot. Nick & Juliette won't have to shop for fresh produce for years if he keeps helping the Lodge members!
Now I know what has been lacking - Nick has tapped into his inner Buffy and let his Chosen Self fly free! Thank you! While Buffy still had growing pains due to her young age and limited life experience, when it came time to beat down the demons, she was well prepared. They've flipped it around in Nick's case. He's an experienced cop who had a destiny thrust upon him that he had to meld with his other life very quickly. I like that he's embracing it instead of fighting his responsibility.
One nitpick - please film the fight scenes better. Either they're too dark or shot too close. But, I can never tell which characters are where in the fights. Never had that problem w/Buffy or Angel because they were shot farther back. I know it's supposed to be Portland. But does everyone have to be dressed in the same muted tones, making it hard to differentiate in action scenes? I swear, the only character I can always find is Hank because of his brown/tan jacket.
Great episode. The opening scene was adorable and cool. Nick took out 2 Reapers at the same time! Holy crap! The dinner was adorably awkward. I bet a bunch of beavers will come to Nick`s aid in the future. It's weird that Nick and Juliette haven't talked about the proposal right?
(if I were the troll, and found out this Grimm just handily beheaded 2 reapers, I wouldn't risk lying to him...)
1) it's a misconception that every international packaged is inspected. (this I know as real-life fact)
2) he got the address from the guy who ordered them in the first place.
(We wondered the same thing)
Interesting observation about Reinard and Nick/shadow, but the biggest exception is R craves power, N has reluctantly embraced it. And in an awesome way, might I add!
Loved the episode and the revelation of the Grimm's amazing fighting skills--and now Nick's as well. I loved the beaver tribute at the end.
The conversation over dinner was so awkward its bound to leave Juliette with more questions.
Regarding Renard and Nick for that matter is all about the was things work in America. One of the differences between Europe and American is our disregard for tradition and class hierarchy. The Mafia broke down in America because of American free enterprise--the young lieutenants stopped taking all their orders from the Don's. I think that's what we see with Renard, and Nick's attitude toward the Wesen.
The awkward dinner was hilarious. I wouldn't blame Juliet for being jealous - good thing Monroe's a man.
I don't mind Hank as much as people do, I like that Nick has human allies.
Nick is such a compelling hero!
Question, why were they speaking French is Germany?
I was wondering the same thing about the package. Exactly how did two severed heads make it through the mailing process without anyone discovering what was inside the box?
I still think Juliette is...something. Nick and Juliette are a great couple, so I really hope she remains one of the good guys. I really hope the writers do not decide to have her revealed to us as a spy for the Reapers, unless Juliette is a Reaper who switches sides because she loves Nick.
just thought of it, one question, how did Nick know where and TO WHOM to send the heads? and how did he manage to send a package out the country without it being scanned for bombs and drugs? wouldn't they have found the heads?
This show just keeps getting better. I absolutely loved this episode. Monroe and Nick training in the woods. Nick telling Monroe, "I said meet me not eat me," then Monroe sniffing him and telling him to wear more wolf bane made me laugh. I can see Hank wondering what Nick has in that bag one day. LOL!
I also loved Nick taking out the two reapers and then, Monroe taking off the dead reapers' head. I am glad that the beavers decided to be brave. I think that Nick's friendship with them will save his and Julia's lives one day.
loved this ep, i am so glad this show is really growing up to be a badass show on tv, about time too. and yes they really should begin to actually tel us stuff, it's fun muddling through it with Nick but this a show after all, and how long can we stay blind and still stay worried if we don't even know the magnitude of the problem. right now it seems just simple Grimm stuff, but we know from the Bees ep that there is sth big coming up. they teased it such a long time ago that i am beginning to forget what was it all about and are they even going to come back to that.
Grimm team was awesome as usual and Hank was thankfully almost unnoticeable, Juliet was in the background where she belongs and the gifts form the Beavers were adorable. it was like a piece of fairy tale which is what they were striving for i am guessing.
Is anyone else noticing how much Renard is, to quote a certain french archaeologist, a "shadowy reflection" of Nick? I mean they've got the same understated badassery, the same nerves of steel, the same tendency towards and skill for keeping secrets, they both have used their natures to assume a position of power in the Wesen world and they both have a similar outlook of "never serve one side or the other, play them off against each other to advance your own goals" with regards to the various Wesen power groups
