Great review! Conveyed the heavy sense of foreboding of this latest episode very well. I'm disappointed that the sheriff didn't question Mr. Gold more about what the heck he was doing "gardening" in the middle of the woods. I guess he had other things on his mind at the time. Disappointed too that we'll have to wait a little while to have some more answers. Observation: Regina-as-evil-queen has the most perfectly delicious evil sneer when she speaks. Not everyone can pull that off so charismatically.
Oh, man! This was a great ep. I liked the fact that the client's death was part of the charade. Breaking new ground is always nice to see. It's great to see Micheal and Agent Pearce bonding. I just hope this doesn't mean we'll soon be saying bye-bye to Pearce. I would like to know a little more about Micheal's father to shed some light on why Madeline defends him sometimes. I mean, there are plenty of times she leaves no doubt that he treated her horribly, and other times she defends him. I just don't get it. I'm with FionaGlenanne in that I don't like to watch the previews for the next week. You can't ask other people not to speculate though. I just try to skim over the comment when I see that sort of thing. It's a personal preference. There's no right or wrong.
Makes sense, Joyeful. Thanks.
I enjoyed the episode. It did leave me wondering about some things. -Why are they running Grimm on back-to-back nights this week? -Not sure if that plummer/repairmen was a reinigen or some other kind of rodent anthropomorphic creature.-I entered the word, reinigen in a German to English translator and it gave me the word, CLEAN. That's a strange name for a rat creature.-How are the "creatures" suddenly able to identify Nick as a Grimm? I hope you're correct in Hank being the one to discover Nick's secret. I wouldn't be surprised though if turned out to be Wu. He seems like a meddlesome type of character and he's less willing than Hank to take in stride some of the strange cases that have been popping up lately. Time to set up the DVR for tonight's episode...
"I thought it was quite sweet of Tate to try to talk her into committing suicide" I had to read that quote in the review a couple times to make sure I had read it correctly. Without this show such a statement WOULD be utterly crazy. Can you imagine how damaging that quote would be if taken out of context while running for public office? LOL Was the exterminator actually killed? If so, are we to assume that Tate only gassed him enough to render him unconcious in order to kill him once his body was taken off the house's property?
Curtis' reaction when Peter told him about the $300 hat was an expletive I'd never heard before. I believe he responded with, "Oh, macadangdang!". At 4 syllables I doubt it will catch on and become a popular slang term but I will do my best to keep it alive. Felt bad for Ethan having to tell a family that their child died. I had a friend who went to the hospital for elective surgery only to throw a clot that lead to a heart attack and she died. Very scary stuff when routine surgery (if there is such a thing) leads to death.
I've always wanted to suggest to someone to apply Occams's Razor to a mystery. Thank you, DAYNA for that chance. As RARPSLF pointed out, the most obvious answer is usually the correct one and that's Occam's Razor in a nutshell.
@Tommy It could be explained that while the specifics of an early childhood trauma are repressed and locked away, certain events can trigger a strong response on a subconcious level. Good observation though, I totally missed that.
As per usual I had no idea who the real bad guys were until the detectives figured it out. I did however think there was something different about them. After seeing the two guys at the preschool my immediate thought was that the two were same-sex partners. C'mon now, how many fathers do you see at preschool singing the wheels on the bus go round and round during circle time? So yes, I knew there was something unusual about them. I was just wrong as to what made them unique. Same-sex partners or masked bank robbers, the two don't have to be mutually exclusive.
I try never to watch previews if I can avoid them and I'm glad I did't see any for this episode of Eureka. I was totally and pleasantly surprised when the animated parts began. I agree with the review, this would make for a wonderful Holiday episode to be shown every year. I'm left wondering if Sninjas bounce.
