Maybe this is a silly question, but what in the world is going on with Maseo? What's his deal with DJ Kissy-face and Ra's al-Ghul? I feel so confused.
With the help of Renard's mother Elizabeth, Juliette basically did the reverse of what Adalind did to take Nick's powers away at the end of last season - namely, Juliette took on Adalind's face and slept with Nick. Juliette's current predicament appears to be a side-effect of the spell. On a side note, you should definitely watch the first part of the season just to see Elizabeth, because she's fantastic. She also has some choice words to describe Adalind.
I, too, wondered if Monroe will ever track down Terry's wife. In terms of this episode, though, perhaps it would have been a bit much going on - it was jam-packed! I love Renard's character. At first he seemed like a secret villain, but it turned out that he was far more complicated than he first appeared. At this point, I'm inclined to believe that he overall wants to do the right thing but is pragmatic enough to do the "necessary" thing. On the other hand, he did sleep with both Adalind *and* her mother, which is just plain *wrong*!
While they haven't definitively answered that question yet, it's currently a reasonable assumption that it is a side effect of what Juliette did to restore Nick's Grimm abilities a few episodes ago.
I agree that almost every episode so far this season has been related to overarching plot progression, without a lot of "fluff". I am curious to know if they'll be getting back to the keys at some point, myself!
It's entirely possible that Nick *wasn't* happy about involving Juliette in this, but he kept his feelings on the subject to himself. I really don't think that he would have been able to make her stay behind, anyway. She's already demonstrated handiness with a hand gun in a previous episode, plus she's not scared to face down Big Scary Wesen. And they were really short on manpower.
Bud is a great foil for our heroes, isn't he? He's no fighter, and he's practically afraid of his own shadow, but underneath that fuzzy exterior Bud's a good, kind, honest, well-meaning guy who just wants to do the right thing.
Huh! I didn't know that bit. Nice connection! This episode really was great, wasn't it? It's going to go down on my list of all-time favorite episodes of television.
Boy, oh, boy are Viktor and Adalind in for a surprise! Not only is Nick a Grimm again, but previously helpless Juliette is now a Hexenbiest! Nick and Hank should probably also tell Wu who was responsible for Wu's pica eating disorder, which had him eating quarters and sofa stuffing and paperclips. I'm sure he'd be thrilled to find out the Truth About Adalind's Cookie...
I think that Renard's more alarmed by the immediate problem of Juliette's, ah, condition than anything else. He has no interest in breaking up Juliette and Nick, after all, as Juliette is one of the things tying Nick to Portland! And I'm definitely hoping for a Juliette/Adalind throw-down.
