Grimm Review: Remembering the Past

by at .  Updated at . Comments

It seems like just a few seasons ago Adalind came around to wreck some havoc on Juliette. 

Imagine my complete lack of surprise then when she came breaking into their home to steal a few things of Juliette's things on Grimm Season 3 Episode 21.

The Portland Grimm

Just about all of us saw this coming the minute Adalind did her breaking and entering. If there's some screwing over to be done, Adalind is right there, ready and waiting to do it to Juliette.

No matter the predictability, however, Adalind continued to be conniving and smart. She knows Renard is lying through his teeth about Diana, and the best way to get information is to go to the man who is really calling the shots: Nick. 

By doppelganging as Juliette, Adalind can find the information she craves and get back at everyone. 

The stronger of tonight's stories iswasRolick and Josh because they bring back plots on Grimm that I've been wanting to go back to for a while now: particularly the keys. Nick is making his name known in the Grimm universe and all the Grimms are coming out to play with their own keys that've been passed along throughout the generations.

Yes, Monroe is right about the keys, 

Monroe: Well, we're one key closer to...God knows what. 

But the forward momentum is wonderful. The lost treasure of Wesen-lantis is still very fary away, but getting back to the core mythology is exciting. 

Trubel is still in the middle of things; getting to know her a little better is fun. A good majority like her enough to want her to stick around for at least a little while - and I have to agree, she brings a fun spark to the show.

One of the fantastic readers even mentions the idea of a spin-off; while there's not Agent Carter-like reveal for Grimm this season, I can definitely see a future episode in Grimm Season 4 as a backdoor pilot to a Trubel series.

It's certainly a callback to the old Grimm days when they wandered around and actively saught after Wesen. 

Are Rosalee and Monroe going to have a nice wedding, or are they doing to elope?

Now I do wonder if the final ending of Grimm will be that they all turn out to be crazy after all.

And also what's gonna happen if her power is taken from her again?

Just a quick question, is it possible for grimm to loose their ability? If so then I pity Adalind cos this time around I don't think she's gonna go unhurt this time around cos Nick's mum gonna hunt her like dear!!!!

I agree with Isoron, in the previews, she can see that Adelaid is 'Juliette'

I suspect they will keep Truble who will be the monkey wrench in the Royals and Adelaines machinations.

My impression is that Adalind is trying to do what the Royals said - the condition that they gave her to see or know more about her baby is that she has to take Nick's Grimm powers away. Man, we thought Nick was badass, but Trubel is just on a whole other plane of badassery. The way she took down the Verrat in the parking lot was just freakin' amazing. P.S. Any episode with shirtless Renard is a good episode.

I'm not sure Adalind knows Renard is lying, actually - she still thinks the royals have Diana. My guess is she's operating under their orders to get close to Nick. Trying to get to his key perhaps? (I forget - do they know he has one?) The previews have already kinda ruined that poll, by the way. And speaking of preview spoilers, I'm gonna be *really* annoyed if Renard gets killed off...

I was a bit concerned that Trubel would get killed when she left the house without Nick. Fortunately, though, they didn't kill her off.

This was definitely one of the most entertaining episode, not the least was the opening dinner scene. I love Rosalee, I want her for a friend. Trubel is rocking, she can take care of herself and everyone around her. Rennard and Adelaid storyline is going to be interesting, poorJuliette. Looking forward to next weeks finale, thing are going to be entertaining.
