Grimm Review: Trubel Trials

at .  Updated at . Comments

Only Nick knows the trouble Trubel sees - and he's determined to see her through this Grimm initiation period.

But Grimm Season 3 Episode 20 demonstrates, helping Trubel is going to take some serious work.

Juliette's treatment of Trubel was rather fantastic. She's nice to her and empathetic of her situation, but her look at Nick is priceless.

Nick's crazy world will always cause people to come through their house in need of rescue, but one look at Trubel and Juliette knows Trubel's going to be: trouble for him, even if Nick isn't quite there yet. It brings about a source of conflict for Nick and Juliette that is not his secret but because of his secret. 

Kudos to Nick for continuing to try the rehab with Trubel; he's really trying to mold her into his own image of what a Grimm is, yet it's clear Trubel wants to do things her way.

Trubel's own way is sometimes a shock to Grimm's system, but as the installment races towards its climax, Trubel's presence becomes a welcome relief.

Stepping back into the world and seeing it through new eyes is always a fun sight, and she brings a fresh, fun take on the usual boys club that the Grimm adventuring has done lately. 

The ending, though, feels rushed, adding yet another layer to a season that is already packed: Nick's zombie state, the baby, the resistance, the royals, a wedding and more.

Bringing another key into the equation echoes stories laid out back in Grimm Season 2; I'm happy they're being brought back up again, but this season needs a little more closure first.

Nonetheless, with Grimm Season 3 coming to a close, this could be the time to bring the story back up. Speaking of Nick's zombie state, it seems the story has been completely disregarded at this point and it's unclear if it's ever going to make another appearance. 

Adalind looks to be back up to her old tricks, but with everyone in on the secret, I imagine this book of spells is going to be much more potent than a batch of blood cookies. This time, Adalind is fueled by her desire to get Diana and she's willing to risk a lot more because of it.

Do you want Trubel to stick around?
