BADASSERY. That's all I can think of to describe the freakin' Reaper massacre. Pure, unadulterated badassery. When he did that spinning kick thing...my gosh, I rewound that a good 6 times. Looks like we found a Grimm power for certain - the innate power to be a badass. Man, I loved this episode. I actually like the fact that Grimm leaves us with questions - it doesn't detract from the show for me, it actually makes it more exciting to me. I love the mystery that surrounds the show, and I love that we're learning at the same pace with Nick. I love how close Monroe and Nick are now. Nick tells him to bring a shovel and he doesn't even flinch - he even cuts the other head off for him! On another note: My brother & I have been calling Wu "network-Masuka" for some time, so having Angel Batista as a bad guy was fun for us.
Oh you gotta be effing kidding me...
When Troy and Abed "switched" I was rolling...sooooo funny! I thought this episode was great. It was such a spot-on parody that sometimes I had to remind myself that I was watching Community.
Between Jon Hamm's "catfish" and Fred Armisen at the telethon, I got a thorough abdominal workout - I was laughing so hard!! I also thought Donald Glover did a great Tracy Morgan - coccyx!! It was also really funny watching Alec Baldwin try to keep it together after getting slapped in the face by Paul McCartney!
I think Community is safe. I would save Up All Night - that show is really funny.
@Peter: "...So we can say that Nick must be dramatically stronger than a normal human."That is a great observation; I never thought of that. You're totally right - the wesen have animalistic strength but Nick can beat them. Great!! @Grimmfan:I think we haven't quite figured out what Renard is yet. Wesen are only seen as their true creature selves if they allow themselves to be seen, or if they lose emotional control somehow (greed, anger, lust, fear, etc). Renard is so freakin' cool and in control of himself, if he is a Wesen, it doesn't show.
Somebody get Robert Carlyle an Emmy. Like - NOW. What an actor - good grief, he's incredible. Oh my goodness - the emotions that Rumpel and Gold took us through in one hour was just amazing. My heart broke for him when he first confessed to August. I was repulsed by him when he killed the man/snail and his maid...but I still found him hilarious. I hated him for letting his son go. He was terrifying when he held the knife to August's throat - and I found myself wondering how such a small man could be so incredibly intimidating. Wow...he's so fascinating. As for the rest of the story...August seems to be Pinocchio from the previews. I feel bad for James, but his and Mary Margaret's love isn't gonna come easy. I'm getting tired of Regina - she needs to be taken down.
@Van - it's actually filmed in Portland. The cinematography really should get an Emmy...
Man, there was so much German in this episode - I had to use closed captioning LOL I loved this episode - I love how this show just gets better and better. I love how Nick has fully embraced what he is - he's no reluctant hero. He's a Grimm with a heart, and I hope that never changes. I loved how Monroe was quick to defend Nick at all costs - these two are solid friends now. I also liked getting more of his history. Now we know why the Wesen are so afraid of the Grimm - they've got a history of working with the oppressors. I'm still not sold on Renard's deal though. He doesn't strike me as evil (that could just be because I think he's hot), but I still don't understand his plan. As for Hank - they really need to give him better material. Hornsby isn't the greatest actor, but he's not terrible. But he's just so out of what makes the show exciting.
1. Favourite scene was the exchange of the brown coat. (There's no place I can be, since I found Serenity...) 2. I bet she didn't answer because she has no idea what she wants to do. 3. Umm...all of them? :-) 4. Definitely Ryan. He got a car AND he set Castle up. Floor seats will come and go. Ryan will be able to flaunt that to Castle for the rest of his life LOL. Watching this episode just reminded me of how good an actor Nathan Fillion is. Seeing him and Baldwin together...I couldn't help but think of Firefly, and of how different Richard Castle is from Malcolm Reynolds. Kudos to Fillion for being able to portray such radically different people.
