The more I think about it, the more I think it's possible that Juliette whammied Renard, because he suddenly agreed with her plan to kill Adalind and quite readily told Juliette where Adalind was staying. I don't imagine Renard would be happy if he were whammied by anyone!

It's not that I dislike the show; I simply wish it would be better. Maybe I'm overly harsh in my critique, but that's what the comments section is for: where people can share their varying opinions. I don't expect everyone to agree with me on everything! Honestly, I'm glad you enjoyed the episode even though I didn't.

Maybe I veer towards more critical than less of any given episode, but I'd rather they improve the quality of their writing than not. I do have hopes for NCIS: New Orleans, though I haven't been blown away at all by even a single episode. The way I've seen things, most of the episodes were passable, but not great. I freely admit that freshman outings are often rough and uneven, but I hope they use the learning opportunity to make things better. This episode featured some good moments, to be sure, particularly for Sebastian and Loretta. I just wish these moments had a better vehicle.

Does this make Wu as Spike? Dear heavens, my brain...

That would be so cool. Of course, then the guys would want to sell tickets...

The solution to Renard's problem with Prince Kenneth is simple: find the Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch!

And Caesar’s spirit, ranging for revenge,
With Ate by his side come hot from hell,
Shall in these confines with a monarch’s voice
Cry “Havoc!” and let slip the dogs of war,
That this foul deed shall smell above the earth
With carrion men, groaning for burial. The text is from Shakespeare's Julius Caesar, Act III Scene 1. "Cry Havoc" is a loaded title for the season finale, to be sure. Violence, chaos, revenge: basically, fun times!

I guess that makes Nick Buffy, and Monroe is Giles?

I'll take your word regarding Kenneth I, though Prince Kenneth on Grimm still makes me snicker inside every time I think of him. Prince Kenny has come to town, folks! And he means business! (I would die *so* fast in this world.) Regarding Juliette: I do appreciate the TBI analogy; maybe I'm more surprised that no one's called her out on her behavior, or even looked confused about it. Yeah, it's been stressful and all, but no one seems to have pointed out even in passing that her personality has completely changed.

Indeed, that was a nice touch. I was surprised but happy to see that little mention.
