Spot-on review - and I agree in every possible way. I hated the paternity reveal. I hate the whole soap-opera twist. I think the time lapse in the Grimmverse from Adalind and Nick's tryst to now is much less than real time (probably really only a couple months in Grimm time). On the other hand, the timing is still fishy because when Adalind slept with Nick, Diana was less than a month old. Remember, she gave birth in the forest while on the run, went straight to Nick's house, they sent Diana off with Nick's mom, Adalind screwed Nick thinking the royals had her baby. From a biological standpoint - while it's possible that she could have gotten pregnant within that first month, it's not very likely. The only possible redeeming factor about it is that it makes for interesting possibilities with the baby's potential powers. But I still hate it.
LOL...I was hoping someone else noticed the Peter Rabbit thing!
You're right, he needed her in rabbit form, AND he needs it to be fresh. So it has to be done as close to the sale as possible.
Great review - and I agree, the episode fell a bit short for me. Interesting that you said that Fitz betrayed Simmons. I don't think he did, and I'm not convinced that Simmons should justifiably feel betrayed. For one, Fitz's actions weren't about Simmons, they were about Skye and keeping her safe. Also, Simmons deliberately put a lot of distance between her and Fitz; they've barely had a conversation in months. I think her expectation that he should still be loyal to her is unfounded, and she had to see how her behaviour would have led Fitz to believe that Skye wasn't safe from her.
Another note...any Avatar:TLA fans in the house? Lightning redirection? Iroh would have been impressed.
I LOVE when shows raise the stakes like this. That said, I simply must have Cisco back. We need him back. Fix it, Barry! I was actually a bit disappointed to get all of Harrison's backstory this quickly. One of my favourite things about the show was how enigmatic Harrison Wells was, how we couldn't quite figure out his agenda. I would have been okay with not knowing for a while longer. Sidenote, those blue eyes of his...mercy. Iris & Barry - they're probably going to undo that with the time-travel Barry just did. It didn't feel right anyway. It was rushed and ill-timed, and as great as his reveal to her was, I don't feel like that was the right time for them in either of their lives to confess their feelings.
Wow, that was a great piece, and I'd love to hear how you think this episode tied the season together. Also, the "Iro...ATOM" quip made me laugh out loud. Even Iron Man had to practice in his suit!!!
Glad you enjoy it!
I assume you think they were in France and not Canada? FYI, French is one of the official languages of Canada (the other is English), and the province of Quebec speaks French as its first language. Hence the French accent.

Thanks! I didn't see the preview. Ugh, I hope they don't go with Nick being the father, that's just too soap-opera-ish.
