I like the Juliette and Renard storyline. I think they have more chemistry than Nick and Juliette -- that's not saying much since Nick and Juliette have zero. Renard's situation and the actor's performance make it more interesting than corny or soapy. But it's a little too slow paced, and it'd be better if Juliette seemed either more conflicted and drawn to Renard and/or distrustful of him. Renard is clearly affected. Not sure if Juliette really is or not. She didn't seem into the kiss at all.
The best thing about this loss of memory storyline is that it's left Juliette trying to find herself and how she fits into Nick's life again. Which means that this COULD (and I hope does) result in a reinvention of the character or a removal of the character from the show.
As a veterinarian, I'm not sure how she could fit into the show without her focus being an involvement with either Nick or Renard. Even if she found out about the Wessen, I'm not sure that would be enough to make her use
I agree with KansasGuest. Please no/minimal triangle writers. Juliette's amnesia needs to be wrapped up soon.
I completely agree with kansasguest. the show needs a kickass female counter part of Nick- it'll be interesting to see their dynamic.
Juliette's character has gone frm boring to mind numbing fr me. she is stiff and has no chemistry, also she doesn't interest me- nothing abt her makes me sit up and be interested.
I also hate how monroe's charactr is being thrown under the bus to mke hank's character seem to be more part of the grimm side of nick's character. It startd out ok, seeing hank making sense of it, but now its just boring! nick and hank have no chemistry! I loved nick and monroe's bromance! hank puts me to sleep!
in my opinion Hank and juliette's characters are kinda dragging the show down fr me. Either gt them out of the picture or mke them mre interesting.
FROM BELOW...That gives me the opportunity to say this.
If you want to add a recurring character, be it intern or another Grimm, please consider a kick-ass FEMALE character who is not the age of Nick's mom. It's time to introduce someone who is neither witchy (like Adalind & her mom) or sweet & docile (like Juliette & Rosalee). But, instead a capable, intelligent, quick-witted professional who can hold her own & bring something to the party. I liked Detective Valentina. Since she's on leave from the New Mexico PD & she doesn't have anything to do for a whole year, you should think about it. Remember how much more interesting BUFFY & ANGEL became when Faith & Darla were introduced, challenging the morals of the shows heroes? Take a risk. Try it. Think long-term. Thank you!
ery interesting episode. Glad that Ryan wasn't a permanent cast addition, although the character himself was intriguing & had potential. It felt like his purpose was not planned very well. Would this have developed better if the audience had seen him in his home environment w/an alcoholic over several episodes, come to sympathize with him because he really wants to be a detective, & then been shocked that he was actually stalking Nick? It could have been written with the possibility that he was a Grimm before discovering he was a wesen. Talk about self-loathing. What the *&%^ was he? Looked like some sort of vampire worm creature.
His whole introduction & storyline just felt so rushed. Recurring characters can be woven much better than this intern so there is an actual emotional payoff instead of the feeling of "see ya!" To compare, refer to the Jonathan character in BUFFY. But, since he's a murderer, I don't think we'll be seeing Ryan again...CONTINUED A
i whole heartedly agree about the triangle that no one wants but the only difference is that i really really really do not like Juliette! i was banking on her dying at the end of season 1 but guess not all dreams can come true.
I have long suspected Grimm are actually Wesen and I wonder if we will eventually meet a non Burkhardt (through marriage I know but I never caught Marie's last name) who might tell Nick more information that isn't colored.
i honestly do not think that it is possible for anyone to have chemistry with Juliette. She is just so wooden. In the beginning I actually thought she was a part of the Wessen world because of her frozen expressions. I couldn't watch the coffee house scene. It was incredibly humiliating, I was squirming throughout. The whole thing was almost redeemed when she remembered the hospital kiss. Hopefully, it will move the plot forward. Still love the show, but the awkwardness is killing me especially since I know Renard and Juliette are not going to end up together. The writers wouldn't dare, it would make Juliette too unsympathetic. Renard IS Nick's boss. AWKWARD!
As per the reviewer and the other posters for this episode, agreed about 'development 2'. Unfortunately, Renard and Juliette are not projecting fantastic chemistry together and it is being drawn out too long, not in a fascinating, bated breath kind of way either. It baffles me why Nick didn't continue to investigate Juliette's attack further after the cursed cat died, I can't be the only one who thinks that's out-of-character? Grimm grabbed me from the pilot episode, however the few episodes are starting to worry me, Miggymigs has a point...please please right the wrongs, I don't want to see Grimm leave on an average note!
This love triangle is sooooo forced. They need to do something with the Juliette character. Either kill her off or have her resolve things. Her and Captain Renard have ZERO chemistry. I literally rolled my eyes during the dinning scene with the Renard character. She goes from one week being drawn to Nick to the next week this?!?!?! PUHLEASE! Makes me feel a freshman in college wrote this episode. I literally watched most of the episode using the fast forward button by way of the DVR. Grimm is going down the crapper really fast. I am not surprised. Heck it is on NBC!
*coming to a head. I hope, as a result, Nick learns about Renard, or at least becomes suspicious.
I enjoyed the episode overall. My only complaint is this: not enough Monroe. We got more of him this week than last, it feels, but enough. Maybe Nick will move out of Juliette's house and in with Monroe. Dubious, I know.
I speak German, and I got a kick out of the killer Grimms being called Endezeichen-Grimms. Endezeichen means terminator, though more in the end of an event sense not skynet. Regardless, all during the episode I had visions of Arnold Schwarzenegger trying to save John Conner by killing Wesen. Though that was the first time I'd heard "alptraum" referred to as a cautionary tale rather than nightmare, its meaning.
I too thought Ryan was up to no good, but I thought he was working for Renard's family. Ryan's character put an interesting spin on the Wesen community. I liked Wu's comment about future interns needing a more extensive psych eval.
Two more episodes left for this year? NBC, that's just mean. I'm looking forward to this triangle coming to a hea
