I agree completely that it would be far more interesting for Juliette and Nick to join forces and take advantage of her new powers. And it would be a powerful statement to the Wesen and the Royals for a Hexenbiest and a Grimm to stand hand-in-hand! Wu, Monroe, and Rosalee are fantastic characters, and I think they enhance every scene they're in.

I'm glad you enjoy reading my reviews! I don't expect people to agree with me on everything I say, and it's good to get different points of view. Plus, sometimes I make mistakes and get things wrong, too! 1) Part of my problem with the way the Nick/Juliette stuff is playing out is that it comes with a "been there, done that" feeling. Pretty much all they've had since the start of the series is one thing after another conspiring to make their relationship fret with problems. Nick can't tell Juliette he's a Grimm! Juliette lost her memory! Juliette's getting it on with Renard! On and on and on. With the writers throwing so many personal obstacles between them, it's starting to feel like they don't want Nick and Juliette together at all, which is frustrating to me personally. 2) Other people have cleared up this point, so I won't add anything more than a "thank you." :-) 3) They kind of shot themselves in the foot with this one. As far as I can remember, there was nothing to suggest the last season's finale, "Blonde Ambition" (when Adalind slept with Nick), was at any other time of year than May, when the episode aired. As you pointed out, there are a number of episodes that proceed directly to the next with very little, if any, passage of time. That's fine; I have no problem with that. Unfortunately, Season 4 Episode 7 (the one with the Christmas gremlins) is *definitively* set around Christmas. 4) I actually thought of the rhino horns and whatnot as I was watching the episode. It wasn't that it was a bad story, it just felt crowded with all the other madness going on at the same time. On a side note, I'm a bit surprised that they didn't mention Freddy Calvert and his little side-operation with the Geiers and Gallenblase (Season 1 Episode 10, "Organ Grinder"), since this was very similar to what was going on here.

I like it! Hehehe, KreePete. Here's a question: won't the Kree just send KreePete (or another, less memory-wiped, operative) back to Earth when they realize he hadn't completed his mission to retrieve the Terrigen crystals?

Regarding number 2: Vin-Tak was indeed holding the Truncheon when he was zapped by it. Bobbi forced it onto him after Vin-Tak was stunned by a shot from the Big Gun. And for the record, I still can't help but think of him as Pete the Kree! People and their super-soldier experiments. They never turn out well, do they?

I tend to ignore "Yankee White" in terms of character development for a few reasons. It's got too many differences from the rest of the series (like the fact that it's *Gibbs* who cites a movie plot line in figuring out the terrorist plan). Given the tenor of Gibbs's and Fornell's relationship in Fornell's later appearances, and the fact that they had both been married to and divorced from Diane (and Gibbs "warned [him]" about Diane), it seemed like they'd known each other for awhile. Eh. Canon is malleable.

Poor LaSalle, I can see Cade taking off again, too. It seems so much easier to run away from your problems than to face them, except Cade really can't escape his problems at all. They're tied to him like a ball and chain.

Yeah... honestly, I would be an emotional wreck if I just killed someone, even (or perhaps especially?) if he were my abusive stalker-control-freak husband. And yet, there Amber is like nothing happened. And that's not even going into the potential *legal* consequences! I'd say she was perfectly justified with the first strike of the vehicle, as he was still an immanent threat to their lives. The second hit, when she ran him over with the car, though... that's where things get a *lot* more murky.

Oh, I definitely enjoy Hawaii Five-0; it's a lot of fun, even when the stories aren't necessary up to logical snuff. Chi McBride is an entertaining actor, and Grover and McGarrett play off each other very well. I do miss McGarrett and Danny's constant carguments, though.

Dreamrose

They don't even mention whether he survived the vehicular manslaughter attempt or not; in either event, Amber seems surprisingly unaffected by the fact that she (might have) just killed her abusive husband! I don't know about you, but I'd probably be a nervous wreck after everything that happened.

Dreamrose

Ah, thank you for the clarification!
