*coming to a head. I hope, as a result, Nick learns about Renard, or at least becomes suspicious.

I enjoyed the episode overall. My only complaint is this: not enough Monroe. We got more of him this week than last, it feels, but enough. Maybe Nick will move out of Juliette's house and in with Monroe. Dubious, I know.

I speak German, and I got a kick out of the killer Grimms being called Endezeichen-Grimms. Endezeichen means terminator, though more in the end of an event sense not skynet. Regardless, all during the episode I had visions of Arnold Schwarzenegger trying to save John Conner by killing Wesen. Though that was the first time I'd heard "alptraum" referred to as a cautionary tale rather than nightmare, its meaning.

I too thought Ryan was up to no good, but I thought he was working for Renard's family. Ryan's character put an interesting spin on the Wesen community. I liked Wu's comment about future interns needing a more extensive psych eval.

Two more episodes left for this year? NBC, that's just mean. I'm looking forward to this triangle coming to a head soon, as it looks like, so maybe Nick will find out about Renard.

I agree - Haven is knocking my socks off too. Good thing that it's nearing winter and I don't them for my Uggs, eh?

I also think it may be a bit too early for the reveal of the bolt gun killer. There are six episodes left after all. However, maybe the bolt gun killer saw the grave Tommy was digging and has blackmailed him into being his accomplice. Because that was definitely a white guy who killed the girl for her scalp at the ATM (I rewatched the scene from the previous episode just to be sure). But this is Haven, so your idea that either Tommy's or the real killer's trouble caused them to switch bodies could very well be true. Maybe Tommy switched bodies with that guy Grady for just the ATM murder and then killed him just in case. I don't know.

I don't think Tommy expected Audrey and Duke to arrive at the cabin and was going to shoot the girl and frame her for the murder of Nathan. Obviously I don't think Nathan will die. He better not. I want a happy ending for Naudrey!!! ;-)

I too think Eyal and Annie are both being used by someone, but I hope not his superior in Mossad because that would be one too many parallels to Lena and Simon. I really like Eyal and would hate for him not to pop up on Covert Affairs in the future seasons.

I understand why Cat was scared of Vincent; I think it was only natural and I'm glad they showed her coming around to trust her gut without dragging it on.

I think Vincent is going to become a crime junkie trying to hunt out victims and report them to Cat. I'm not saying that's a bad thing to try and help. But I don't think he's doing it for that reason, or at least for that alone. I wonder if he's falling for Cat because of who she is or because of what she does for him. She gets him back in the world, accepts him and expects him to be a good person, the latter of which no-one before Cat asked of him. And that would be hard for someone of Vincent's character to go long without. But if he's falling for her because she brings him out into the world again more than for who she is, well that's not fair to her or him. But this is a CW show, and impossible and imprudent romances are the bottom line. ;-)

I am really going to miss "Common Law" and "Fairly Legal". "Common Law" prolly more than "Fairly Legal" but I enjoyed both. Hopefully USA Network will replace them with scripted shows of at least equal caliber, and that those shows pull in the eyeballs needed to keep them on the air more than one or two seasons.

I enjoyed the episode, though I had the janitor figured from the first and knew someone else had used him to kill the other girl from the moment Watson said the girl wasn't dying, just healing slowly. But maybe I have read and watched too many mysteries.

I think Joan will go back in to medicine, that working with Sherlock will help heal her. And then it'll be fun watching Sherlock try to scrub in so he can bounce ideas off her.

I hope that Fusco doesn't get in trouble down the road. He's trying so hard to redeem himself and be the guy he always wanted to be.

I think Maxine figured out that John was the Man in the Suit.

I think Leonard and Sheldon live together because they do care for each other, and neither are willing to move out of their comfort zones and live by themselves or with a girl yet. Living alone can be, well, lonely. There is a comfort knowing someone who cares about you (and vice versa) is less than a stone's throw away.

Besides, just because you can afford to live in your own apartment, doesn't mean that it isn't more fiscally prudent to save that money and share an apartment. My grandfather would say they're being wise. I think living in your own apartment is a more recent evolution of societal norms, within the last generation (I'm talking my dad's and he was born in 1950). Most of my friends, especially my male friends, shared apartments until they moved in with significant others or got married.

I really liked that they are finally taking Penny's character forward in her life. It seems that she's maturing.

I think in every relationship, boundaries can be hard to define and redefine over time. I'm glad Penny stood up to Leonard and didn't let him walk over her. His comment relating her cooking to her writing was great.

Oh Shelly. So Shelly.
