We do not yet know the REAL intent of the program. f I had to take a wild guess, I would say they are aiming at a way to stitch someone who is still alive (ie: something like mind reading/telepathy). It would make an interrogation technique,

As noted in the review so far Season 3 is based on the first part of Book 3 ("Hannibal"). It also has the back story of Misha and Chiyo from Book 4 ("Hannibal Rising"). In Book 4 Misha was eaten by some solders and Hannibal had revenge on them for that act. Chiyo helped him.

The comment came just after Detective Fisher was brought to Sticker Central and saw the High Tech configuration. It was to the effect of "Welcome to 20 Minutes into the Future". As I noted this show has a number of throw-away in-gag references for the viewers who can spot/understand them. Some are more subtile than others. The pilot had one which I think few viewers could miss (in fact I think it was identified in the dialog). This was when they did the first stitch and the directions were right out of Star Trek.

I like how they have throwaway in-gag references for sci-fi viewers. In this episode, for example, there was a reference to the Max Headroom tagline "20 Minutes into the Future".

"So Renard wants to be king? Hah! There should be some serious excitement next season. Bring it on!" This goes back to a Season 1 episode about the 3 coins. You have to take the "Want to be King"with a grain of salt since the coins (if I remember correctly) did not so much bring hidden desires to the surface but cause changes in behavior. Thus was the desire actual or caused by the coins?

"Now Adalind is a hexenbiest we don't mind hating and having around." My view is not so much hate as pity. He has had lots of bad breaks and her actions have been triggered by them. She has slowly figured this out and has tried to change/reform. Everyone has taken advantage of her and this season she is trying to stop this and regain control of her life. She seems to be much happier since she now has control and is no longer being controlled. It might be interesting to see what happens if she gets her wish to be reunited with Diana. The loss of Diana and her desire to get her back has been at the root of much of her problems/actions.

"So Agent Chavez doesn't know Nick is a Grimm? I wonder if Nick knows she is Wesen." When she showed up early in the season, Nick was un-Grimmed and she ID'ed T as a/the Grimm. Unless T told Nick he would be unaware of Chavez's Wesen nature. He will find out if/when she changes in his presence and she will then get a surprise when she does.

"Due to the fact that he hasn't returned Diana to her mother, we can only imagine what his plan is." I think it is too early to make this statement. The last we saw he had just rescued her and there was no time to see what he plans to do with her. She should, if we ignore the issue of her being a target for the Royals, be returned to Adalind (who has gone through hell to be reunited with her). I can in theory see the Resistance pulling a WitSec type new identity for Adalind so she can be reunited with Diana but that IMO is the only way to safely reunite them.

"The Jack The Ripper storyline is now "dead". I'm not even sure how it
was started in the first place, to be honest! How the Captain became
possessed by Jack is still unclear too me." That was explained. When the Captain died and was resurrected by his Mom, Jack came along for a ride.
