Hopefully, we'll find the answers to the Renard's condition next week! (Just in time for the Ultimate Showdown in the season finale the following week!)

For some reason, I didn't even think of Renard being the Ripper, but it would certainly explain a few things, particularly Henrietta's murder. I agree, Claire Coffee was on fire this week! Her comic timing is spot-on. Regarding Kelly Burkhardt, I wouldn't count her out just yet! She's a canny Grimm, and Prince Ken Doll isn't as bright as he thinks he is. Plus, Truble's on her way, too.

Clayne Crawford has played Cade in all three of his appearances so far. :-)

Ghost brides were the topic of an episode of Numb3rs (Season 5 Episode 13, "Trouble in Chinatown," to be specific.) It was also addressed in Bones Season 2 Episode 16, "The Boneless Bride in the River."

Poor Savannah. She had the misfortune to be in a romantic relationship with a major character on a network television show. Bonus points for the fact that it's a crime show, and her chances of surviving were dwindling by the moment. It's become cliche by this point. Sigh. And I liked Savannah, too.

Some of the weapons would likely still be partially intact if they're made of metal.

That was a fantastic line, wasn't it? I wish I'd managed to fit in into my review somewhere. And Sasha Roiz's deadpan delivery just hit the mark, as you pointed out! I really think that the writers need to sit down and reread their series "bible" about what happened when and to whom, because they are really, really confusing things right now. Regarding the cases, I feel that the writers could put more effort into making the cases themselves more interesting and less blatantly obvious. Though, as you mentioned, sometimes it's more about the characters than the cases themselves. Unfortunately, they can't seem to decide if Grimm is a Monster of the Week show or a character-driven arc show.

I'll add Aaron Hotchner from Criminal Minds: it's so rare for the grounded and serious head of the BAU to smile, but when he does it's like the sun coming out from behind the clouds as his whole face lights up.

You and I think along the same lines. I would hope that Wu, being the tech-savvy guy he is, has been spending his free time scanning all those priceless lore books! A flash drive is much easier to lug around than a trailer, after all, and much easier to keep secret.

At the time, Adalind had no clue about the real circumstances about the child's disappearance. All she knew was that Renard had handed Diana over to Viktor, who then left. She did *not* know that Nick, Monroe, or Rosalee had anything to do with it. Let's take a look back at the Way Things Happened. After Viktor returned to Vienna, Adalind called him and begged him to let her see her child. Viktor didn't actually have the baby, remember, but he decided to take advantage of Adalind's situation and use her against Renard. He told her to do something about Nick, and then they'd talk about letting her see Diana. Adalind then proceeded to de-Grimm Nick and flew away to Austria herself. Again, at this point, she *still* did not know Nick was involved in Diana's disappearance. Adalind didn't even realize that Viktor didn't have Diana until he threw her in the dungeon! It wasn't until after her infamous dungeon experience that Adalind finally put two and two together and figured out that Kelly Burkhardt was involved and that Renard must have arranged for the baby to vanish with Kelly. So, Adalind's claim that she did what she did *because of* the part Nick played in Diana's vanishing is an outright lie on her part, either to the others or to herself to justify what she did. Of course, there are other horrible things Adalind did that she simply CANNOT blame on anyone but herself, like the Cat Scratch of Doom.
