This was probably my favourite episode all season, and probably with most of last season, too. I love Hook, and I love his back story even more. And holy crow, that kiss...
I think Hook keeping the secret of Neal's survival is too predictable. I think he'll tell them, or at least tell Charming. I think Hook does have honour, and don't think he wants to have Emma by default; he would rather that she chose him. Besides - do they all know that Hook was the one who handed Baelfire over to Pan in the first place? I can't remember if that's common knowledge, but that seems like a worse secret to me.
On another note - I would love to buy a beer for whoever decided that Regina should be the resident smart-ass! I pretty much love every word that comes out of her mouth. and I was with her on the sleeping curse.
Last thing - where the heck is Rumple?
(sigh) Just saw this week's episode - we get it a day early in Canada. I officially completely dislike her now.
My brother and I were discussing a theory last night - thought I'd share. Perhaps when a Grimm gets infected with a Wesen pathogen, it enhances some of his abilities, but the effects linger. Last season, when he got infected with the eye-worms, he went blind, but in turn got super hearing, and that lasted even after he was cured from the eye thing.
It appears that this zombie pathogen has enhanced his strength (did you see that metal coffin - and he WALKED AWAY from a plane crash), but also reduced his anger management filter. Dude's kinda like the Hulk now. It'll be interesting to see what happens after he's cured. Grimm SMASH!!!
I'm sorry - did that say an EXTENDED VERSION of Balls in The Air?!? YES!!!
Also, a longer version of "It's Not Easy Being White"?!? DOUBLE YES!!!
1. Somehow Hook and Regina have become my favourite characters, so I pretty much enjoy any scene they're in. Regina's sarcasm is more fun than all the magic LOL
2. Yes, but I understand why he didn't.
3. I think it will be like the Avengers. All of them together with a plan, united against a common enemy.
4. Regina. Regina has been manipulated from day one, and has systematically lost everyone that was ever on her side.
5. Agreed with Nick.
6. I always thought Rumpelstiltskin was pretty creepy.
Also, not sure if you guys have seen this NBC recap of Grimm season 2. I'm pretty sure the narrator is one of us :-)
YAY - Grimm is back, finally!
@GeneralRapunzel - Agreed! The supporting cast carried the show incredibly well. Monroe and Hank's determination to help Nick was fantastic, and Juliette is already vastly better than she was in both previous seasons! I think she and Rosalee will make a great pair with their respective non-Wesen and Wesen scientific minds.
Wow, was the Adalind story ever gross. Now we're dismembering people? UGH.
Oh captain, my badass captain. I think that Renard's allegiance to Nick and friends became clear during the last season - he has his own mysterious agenda, yes, but he's never shown any malice towards Nick.
I do wish we understood more about how/why Nick's reacting the way he is to the zombification. Hopefully that will be explained. In the meantime, this review did a good job of noting the differences between his reaction and that of normal folks.
Great review as usual, McHatton :-)
Oh - and this is how I predict this whole Lamar mess ending. Lamar is convinced Teddy sold him out, therefore puts a hit out on him OR exposes his embezzlement. Teddy either goes to jail or dies, exposing what's-her-face's fake pregnancy scheme, AND allowing Deacon a chance to be a father to Maddie. And that's how Rayna and Deacon get back together (we all know they will).
Also - If someone had told me last season that Avery would become one of my favourite characters and I'd end up liking Avery more than Gunnar, I would have thought they were nuts. But here we are.
I'm going to start every comment on Nashville from now on by singing Chip Esten's praises. It never ceases to amaze me how he knocks it out of the park every week, even when he's barely on screen.
Next - the music. The duet between Deacon and Scarlett was one of the most beautiful things I ever heard. Went straight to iTunes to get it after that.
My favourite scene was Rayna finding her voice on stage after the audience gave her the strength to do it. That really moved me, and Connie Britton really shined.
Lastly - (sigh) Gunnar. I was in his corner until this episode. Sleeping with your ex's best friend, while you're still in love with her? And some best friend - what the hell? Terrible.
I'm not quite sure what to think about this episode. I didn't find it that funny, but I thought the character work on Schmidt was well done.
That being said...Winston singing his work will never not be funny. Pumpkinning...
