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.

As Miranda noted in the body paragraph, this isn't a comprehensive list of all tragic deaths on television! Since I am one of the five adults in the United States who never watched ER, I don't know anything about Mark Green and his fate. What happened to him?
You present some interesting questions and theories; I hope that we get a good answer sooner rather than later, because we're fast running out of episodes for this season!
Anyone else get an Inhuman vibe from Stick? It would fit with what's going on in Agents of SHIELD, to be sure.
I, too, found the motion sensor thing unlikely. The way they described the chip was akin to the human sense of proprioception, or position. (This sense allows you to touch your nose with your eyes closed: you know where both your hand and your nose are without looking.) That wouldn't be enough information to allow you to accurately reconstruct an event in the way they did. Here's another oddity: the killer managed to have a brutal knock-down fight with the victim in that hotel room, yet he somehow managed to not leave behind a single shred of traditional forensic evidence? The guy may have been a computer genius, fine. But are we supposed to believe that he cleaned up every trace of himself in that room? (Where are Mac Taylor and his team when you need them? They'd have solved the case in five minutes.)
I do hope we'll find some clarity before long. Maybe when Juliette finally gets control of her burgeoning powers? I'm not sure how I feel about Kenneth as a Zauber, mostly because the Royals seem to have a thing against diluting the blood in general (and the 'biests in particular). Also, wouldn't Renard, being a Zauber himself, have known about another Royal Zauber?
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.
