I agree with your points about Adalind. She was more open and interesting in this episode than she's ever been. I used to dread her scenes but if they can hang on to some of this side of her, I'll rethink that. I also agreed with your notes about the humor on this episode. I also agree with the tone of most of the comments. I really like this show but it's become something of a mess. The core is the Wesen community and they don't really deal with that enough. My favorite recent episode is the one with the Wesen Nazi Council(I can never remember their name) because I think it carried the essence of the series - Wesen traditions, real peril, and kick-ass heroics by the whole team. The Royals could have been a very intriguing story line but just comes across as petty. And I'm so tired of Juliette, Adalind, pregancies, etc. I was sick at the burning of the trailer. Even if the info has somehow been saved it is the loss of such a special place that I regret. Not so much because of what it says about Juliette but because of what is says about the show-running. My biggest disappointment about this show is that it never really deals with Nick as a Grimm. He's not curious about it, he's doesn't learn about it, he doesn't work at fulfilling his role. He's just a cop with a special ability to see something others can't and fight well. I would like to see this show move toward more of an Arrow or Daredevil approach, though maintaining the lighter tone, where Nick starts to seriously understand and develop his Grimmness to help the good Wesen, etc. It's like he takes no serious responsibility for anything, except sometimes in immediate reaction to a situation. The trailer for me was the one link to the ancient traditions of being a Grimm, his heritage, etc. Burning it means a break from that which I hoped would go deeper not less.
Kill of Red (James Spader) and you kill the show. So, even though we knew that he wasn't going to die, it was an intense hour of television. Mr. Kaplan is awesome, and like others I want to know more about her. I am so very fond of Dembe, and was grateful that he played a bigger part in this episode. We need that every week. Dembe, Mr. Kaplan, and even Tom are more interesting than Lizzie.
Oh I am so enjoying this show! It feels so good laugh again at a series that is serious in nature, rather than at the sitcoms that are not my thing!
I was so happy to see Dennis Haysbert in this episode, but somehow I knew that he was going to be killed as soon as he left Frank's office. What a waste of such a talented actor. Anyway, poor Frank is just about ready to quit, and Danny isn't able to do diddly to catch the killer with his hands tied. I had not heard beforehand that one of the Reagans would be shot, but I did know as soon as Linda replaced Hector's IV bag that someone was going to go after Hector.Having it be Curtis was a shock, and now it looks like he shot Linda and Hector, but I guess time will tell. I wish that we got more than just 22 episodes, and Blue Bloods better be renewed for another season!
Totally missed Michael Weatherly on the list. Great Smile.
I agree - Misha has a smile that leaves you warm all over!!
I like the way the characters interacted with each other and the pace was OK. However, what really annoyed me was that the show was about stopping the Apocalypse. It's Sleepy Hollow but with out the weird stuff and more people. Hahahahaha.
At the end, while Rossi tried to start the interrogation Hotch heard something different from his name. Sounded like Erin to me. So I googled "Erin criminal minds" and found out, that there really was a charakter Erin (Strauss) in the series. Because I missed some seasons, I´m just curious if that gives some hints to what Peter could have done to Hotch?
Derek and Meredith it was like true love, watching them together and now that you killed Derek you killed the show and broke Meredith heart in to 100 little piece and she cant put it back together how dare you do that to true love.
Juliette has officially LOST IT !!! She freakin burned the TRAILER ! I mean, seriously ! I hope Wu got it all memorized, coz the road ahead just got harder. The weapons and concoctions ! I mean they can rely on Rosalee but still, that's his heritage... As soon as she went it and lit that candle I knew. Hoped I was wrong, but nope, she went and did it. AND too many ppl knew where the damn trailer was. Nick should change location every so often !
