If they are going with a Juliette pregnancy, they have to be very
careful. It's very easy to write a series off the rails by introducing a
baby. We aren't watching "Grimm" for Nick and Juliette taking the
little Grimmlet to 'Monster and Me' classes! (Then again, thinking about
it, that might be pretty funny.) On the plus side, they will probably
have no shortage of willing babysitters for the Grimmlet! (Plus Renard feeling upset and jealous because he can't be with his own child.) As long as the child isn't The Chosen One (ugh, hate it when writers do that), I'm open to the possibility. I don't know what they are planning for Trubel and Josh and if they're going to reappear anytime soon. With the Hundjager chasing around after Josh, I'm leaning towards a definite "maybe." ;-) Having watched the entire episode, the opening scene makes no sense. The gremlins would probably just break a window and wreck the place, without all the advanced prep and probably hours of waiting for the partygoers to leave, the hosts to clean up and go to bed...

Now that would be an interesting confrontation, wouldn't it? Diana defending Kelly against Adalind (and Viktor). Throw in Elizabeth for good measure, and hopefully Viktor ends up in the volcano on Zakynthos.

Trubel being Nick's sister would certainly change the family dynamic, wouldn't it? I'm not sure how I feel about the idea, as there's enough going on with her being his Grimm apprentice without creating a family connection as well. That said, I wouldn't be overly surprised if that did happen, given the physical resemblance between David Giuntoli and Jacqueline Toboni. I think it's well past time to clue Wu in on what's going on; admittedly, all the episodes this season have taken place in a very short amount of in-universe time, and with all that's been going on, I don't think they would have been able to do justice to that conversation! Would a Grimmlet be a good addition to the extended Grimm family? I sense stormclouds on the horizon... I agree that Trubel and Josh make a nice pair. Hopefully, they'll find a way to make it work!

Renard (presumably the baby's father) had more information at hand than Adalind and knew the immanent danger threatening the girl. He did what he could to keep his child safe and out of Viktor's grasp. Was it the right decision to keep Adalind in the dark about the plan? Maybe not, but I don't really think that there was any one "right" solution to the problem.

Dreamrose

I've always found Adalind a far more frustrating character than even Juliette. Until she went on the run with Meisner and the baby last season, it was like she the tool wielded by the hands of other people: Renard, her mother, the Gypsy queen, Frau Pech... Now Adalind's regressed back to "tool," this time in the hands of Viktor. With Meisner, however, you got the sense that he cared for her as a person, and not just a potential weapon against the Royals.

Dreamrose

Great minds and all? :-D The more I think about it, the more I like the Trubel-Josh pairing. She has critical experience and skills that he lacks, and he has a sense of normalcy and stability that she needs, which is currently being provided by Nick and Juliette.

Dreamrose

Yes, indeed. I hope the writers take advantage of the good place this episode leaves them! To judge by the previews, the upcoming episode is set near Christmas; that means we're due for a time jump of up to around six months from these first six episodes, which were all within at most a few weeks of in-universe time from the season 3 finale episode in May. Weird!

Dreamrose

I'm really excited for next week's Christmas-themed episode, which looks like they were having way too much fun. :-)

Dreamrose

It looks like Nick will get his powers back in the next episode, so maybe you should come back and give it a chance again! :-)

Dreamrose

I agree that the writers are doing Claire Coffee an injustice with the material they've given her lately. Hopefully things will get better in the future, but I'm not exactly holding my breath. I wonder how many booby traps Renard has left in his new yard for unwary intruders? :-D
