Here is the Network's description of the May 15 Season Ender so some of your requests may occur (there will be 2 killings but we do not know who yet). Portland is about to get pretty crowded. The Royals will converge on the city when Adalind's baby Diana hits town. "She's coming back ... in a slightly different form this time," executive producer David Greenwalt says. "Everybody wants to get their hands on her, and the Royals have brought out all the big guns for this." That's OK though since Nick will have two other Grimms -- his mom Kelly and Trubel -- backing him up. Meanwhile, Adalind is still very pregnant with Nick's kid, which new and "ruthless" Hexenbiest Juliette is not happy about. Expect at least two deaths, and the good guys may be more at risk than you think. Monroe will be fighting for his life when "one of his friends shoots him at one point," Greenwalt says. Executive producer Jim Kouf adds, "The captain will be shot again. We have to shoot the captain at the end of every season. It's kind of a thing now."
I seem to remember Nick going Zombie during a fight (or something) this season so it is not totally forgotten.
Even if the books were made into eBooks, there is still the loss of the Weapons (including the Super Soaker <g> - I loved it being added to the others) and the drugs/etc which he has used at times.
Given what state Vanessa was in, I wonder about the other 5 girls. They seem to have been forgotten. Giving the length of an episode this is expected since they have to focus on the latest abducted girl.
Amanda - Thank You. I hope I was not too technical for you - I tried to keep the reply as simple as possible. I like this show since they try to explain the technology and terminology (note that at the start of every episode they give you some definition of a technical term that is important to the plot of that episode). I work with this computer and Internet stuff every day so I can appreciate how good a job they do. Some of what they do and show is extrapolated from what can be done but it is rooted in reality. Unlike other shows they try to get it right and only go beyond what is possible in minor ways.
"I did not exactly follow how Mundo, Krumitz, Raven and Nelson came to the conclusion the device being used to spoof the school computer had to be at the school. Was it a matter of distance?" The spoofing computer needed to be on the LAN (Local Area Network) - ie: The School's Network not coming in from the Internet. The address that they found was a RFC 1918 Private Network Address [172.16.0.0/12] which is non-Internet-routable (like the 192.168.x.x used for home routers). Note that the address was x.x.355.x which is invalid (the values go from 0 to 255) to prevent viewers from trying to use the address. "Did anyone else notice the team used a device similar to a metal detector to track down the cyber bully. Would you call it a spoof connection detector? I am having a hard time buying into this one. Does one of the viewers have any insight on this?" They were WiFi probing for a MAC Address (the unique address of an interface). The closer they got to the computer the stronger the signal. Note that this is only possible if the hard-wired computer had its WiFi activated in addition to its Ethernet port. The MAC address shown was as with the IPN address invalid since it had a G and a Z in it. MAC addresses are HEX (base 16 values) which use the symbols 0-9 and A-F (10 to 15 in the normal Base 10 system).
We got a double dose of cyber-bullying tonight. Right after iZombie ended, switching to CBS for an episode of CSI:Cyber yielded another cyber-bullying plot.
No One has mentioned how Paige and Ralph were able to breeze past the security at the site (after they parked the car due to the cop not letting them drive any further). She just walked/ran (especially with a Kid) all the way to the crash site.
The iPhone 6/6+ has this type of chip in it and it can record the type of information that they say. I do not know if any other phone has the chip. I will agree that as usual they take real technology and use it as a take off point for things that are not yet possible. I do not know how much motion data is collected but what they did is similar to the motion capture technology used for CGI animation in movies (what they showed would be possible if such as motion capture setup were being used since that was what the wire drawing display amounted to). One thing I like about this show is how much real world technology they use/show. The evil twin router problem is for real. The same thing can be done with faked Cell Phone towers - Just Wikipedia for Stingray for details.
Looking at the TV Guide listings I think I saw that there is an upcoming episode where they revisit Avery's hacking incident.
