1. Seriously Teddy? Bringing your mistress to your wife's house? That's just trashy.
2. I hope Lamar lives - just to see if having a near death experience changes how he lives.
3. I just want Deacon to be happy. And MAN, I love Chip Esten!
4. Holy crow - is there ANYONE Juliette won't sleep with?
5. YAHOO to Scarlett and Gunnar! I knew that's why he was upset, we all knew he wouldn't pull an Avery.
6. Avery - I really hope he finds himself somehow.
@kaitcat - From what we know so far, the wesen only see Nick as a Grimm when he recognizes them as wesen; when they woge and he sees their true form. Otherwise they're unaware of who he is. Kellogg never changed in front of Nick.
I enjoyed this episode a lot - it's nice to have a little light-heartedness thrown into the (pardon the pun) grim nature of the show. I really enjoyed the whole conspiracy to set the lawyer up to get his sweat, Bud is always amusing, and Monroe with the toads/Hank-Nick distracting was just pure comedy.
On the flip-side, I also love angry Monroe. Don't mess with the Blutbad's woman! I also like how they use Hank's learning about the Grimm world to remind us what the different levels of conspiracy are - quite frankly, I completely forgot who the Verrat were.
Juliette's storyline is just moving WAY too slowly. I was hoping that the Spanish woman would shed some more light than the vagueries she brought.
Also, the scene with Adalind and Renard's brother was a little out of place in this episode.
I wholeheartedly disagree with this review. Britta did NOT confuse Sophie B Hawkins with Susan B Anthony; she committed a simple phonemic paraphasia. She obviously knew the difference between the two. She COMMITTED to the error because Winger was making fun of her, and really, who hasn't stuck to a lie in the face of embarrassment?
As for Shirley and Annie trying to hook Abed up - it's not unprecedented (remember Abed's Don Draper?). I think that actually fell quite naturally in the plot of a school dance episode. There was definite soul in Abed's storyline, AND in Pierce/Britta's interactions.
I think I'm going to stop with the Community reviews. I usually love reading people's insight whether I agree or not - but I feel like reviewers are ESPECIALLY nit-picky and unfair this season.
I loved this. It was captivating, the acting was superb, and the characters are compelling. I agree with this review; it's GORY, but the gore is an integral part of the story, rather than something superfluous just for show. That being said - was anyone else screaming "don't eat that!!" when Lecter brought Graham breakfast?!
One of the things that makes this show so interesting is the spoiler that every viewer is privy to; we know who/what Hannibal Lecter is. That makes the dynamic between Lecter and Graham even more fascinating - we know so much that Graham doesn't and the anticipation of him finding out is thrilling.
It's too bad NBC's flailing so much - they could have put Grimm and Hannibal together and marketed it as "Freaky Friday" or something.
On a personal note, it was very hard to get over Quantico being the University of Toronto Scarborough campus. I had many lectures in that very hall that Graham was teaching in.
First of all - just let me say - I CANNOT stop laughing at Winston's flashback of a bad date. That was one of the funniest things I have EVER seen on TV. "Sir" George Michael's Father Figure is completely ruined in my head...I watched both the east coast AND the west coast feed just for that scene.
I think the Nick/Jess relationship is being written perfectly - and realistically. I loved the moment when Nick pretended Tran was Jess and told "Jess" how much she's changed his life. I agree with the previous commenter - I think Nick is closer to being ready for this than Jess is.
That being said - I wasn't quite convinced that Schmidt and Winston can't get along without Nick, mostly because we just got an episode recently (jellyfish) that put them together brilliantly. But in any case, I thoroughly enjoyed their B story.
It airs on Thursday - had to go check the Fox website.
@Alana - that's exactly what I was trying to say, you just said it SO much better LOL. I completely agree.
When Beckett decided to go over...I suspected. And then when the lights went off when she confronted the guy - I knew for sure.
I think they scared Castle a little TOO much - making him think the woman he loved was in danger - but he DID react to it. His first reaction was WTF. Beckett started stammering cause she saw that and didn't anticipate it - Martha had to come in for the save. However, I think the way he recovered from it was true to the character of Castle. He realized how epic the setup was. Castle loves a good story, and THAT was a really good story!
Did anyone else hear Beckett tell Castle that his imagination was "one of the things I love about you." That's the closest she's come to the L word!.
This was a really enjoyable, fun episode. Ryan and Esposito were killing me with their Charlie's Angels pose, I was laughing like crazy.
So Marlowe - Castle's birthday is the 100th episode, and Beckett pulls the mother of all pranks on an episode airing on April 1st. Well played, sir, well played.
I didn't mind the procedural. I thought the story was interesting enough, but not fleshed out as well as it could have been. It was nice to see Wu taking centre stage though, I find him really amusing.
Agreed with all - Renard was pretty badass in that restaurant. Nice to be reminded why he's a police captain. The more we learn about the overarching plot, the more I believe that Renard is more of a good guy (with questionable methods) than a bad guy with a self-serving agenda.
Juliette continues to make no sense to me. "My memories of Nick are coming back, he was trying to tell me something, but I won't ask the real Nick because he's keeping secrets, thought he might have already told me in the memories...anyway, I'll just ask his friends who are obviously trying to keep something from me..." I don't even understand that train of thought.
Note - I did like that all the names of this week's villain were anagrams of Rumpelstiltskin...
