Great episode, this is the first time I realize how much I liked Kai, watching him is so much fun, I really hope that the merge happen between Luke and Liv because I like Kai and I don't want him to die any soon and I don't want Jo to die either, she and Alaric have amazing chemistry especially when he picked her up from the ground and hugged her ♥♥I loved all Damon and Elena's scenes and I am so excited to see them fall in love all over again for the rest of the season. the only thing I despite in the episode is Enzo, I just. don't understand why he's stalking Stefan instead of hanging out with his only friend who is recently came back from the death !!!!The last few scenes were really well done , good job Paul.
I wonder if Nick is going to turn in the survivors to the Wesen Council? He has contact with them and doing so (assuming that they are just as pissed about the behavior of the Wesenrein as he is) will score points with them since they have seen him as a Grimm who only goes after Wesen who need to be killed as opposed to killing any Wesen he finds (as a traditional Grimm does/did). I too loved the Posse walking down the hall scene (note that it is used for the screen shot for the episode play <grin>). "Speaking of Renard, he got to show off his own physical prowess during Monroe's rescue, albeit mostly off-screen. Though to judge by Hank's expression, it was quite an impressive display." This is the first time he saw Renard woge and he is real scarry in that form (of course he IS Hexenbeast).

I'm also quite pleased with the Posse moment. But it also occurred to me how evenly the main posse is structured (at least at the moment). You have two magic based Wesen (Renard and Juliette) two nature/feral based (Monroe and Rosalie) and two humans (Hank and Wu). Plus Nick who is pleasantly OP as hell with his enhanced Grimm powers. If you add Trouble to the mix its a 2-2-2-2 structure. It could be my imagination but maybe it will mean something in the future(Like a Portland-based super royal-wesen-grimm-human-council 2.0). I am a bit surprised about Renard's physical prowess though. To lift and snap a man's neck one handed in the air doesn't seem very Zauberbeast-like. On a final note, I am seriously hoping for a Juliette vs Adalind showdown.
Renard has always had plenty of physical skills - he was able to go toe-to-toe with Nick, after all, which is no easy task. I'm definitely hoping that Juliette's Hexen issue will give us some insight about Renard's Zauber half. And a Juliette vs. Adalind showdown would be absolutely awesome, right?
Especially since Rosalie hinted that a non-born Hexenbeast is even more deadly. This could also become the reason why Renard's mother wanted him to keep that enchanted witchhat relic. Juliette using it to counter Adalind would be a nice touch. I wonder if Viktor and Adalind have any clue what they are walking in to when they arrive at Portland. If Nick's posse grows any further you could almost call it an army haha! The show is progressing so nicely I'm considering buying the official lorebook!
Boy, oh, boy are Viktor and Adalind in for a surprise! Not only is Nick a Grimm again, but previously helpless Juliette is now a Hexenbiest! Nick and Hank should probably also tell Wu who was responsible for Wu's pica eating disorder, which had him eating quarters and sofa stuffing and paperclips. I'm sure he'd be thrilled to find out the Truth About Adalind's Cookie...
Oh hell yeah, I forgot about the Wu/Adalind connection. On a side note: It seems time for a more in depth lore-moment. Adelind/Renards uberWesen baby needs to be explained and I need to understand what exactly Nick's Zombie/Rage mode entails. I kind of hope he develops a Grim Woge where he can conscientiously call upon those powers. Just imagine a baddie Vulging in front of Nick and him being "two can play that game" the face of the baddie would be priceless...! Somehow I'm getting a feeling Nick will be the Neo of the Wesenreich, can't wait! One last thing, Nick and Juliette need to make a baby RIGHT NOW so we can have a superpower-baby-brawl between theirs and Renard/Adalind's baby >_< haha!
Is it just me or did anyone else see just a touch of lust in Renard's eyes when Juliette woged for him? Remember he is half hexenbiest on his Mom's side, fathered the wonder-child with Adalind AND had a short spell-induced fling with Juliette in S2 (I think) A rekindling of those embers could really throw relationships into a cocked hat. Especially if,and when , Adalind senses it.
I've wondered before, but more so after seeing/imagining what Renard did. Do royals have special abilities? Perhaps making Renard's half hexenbiest half royal combo powers something to be reckoned with?
Actually, that's not quite true. Hank saw Renard woge when they were fighting against Zombie Nick.
The Wesen Council should be hearing it from at least three different vectors: Nick, as you mentioned, but also Renard (as a Royal) and Rosalee (as the local Council contact for the area)! It's not as if cross-Wesen marriages are uncommon, anyway - we'd already seen others before Monroe and Rosalee got married. I can think of two others off the top of my head: Juliette's Fuchsbau friend and her Klaustreich husband, and the Seltenvogel and her Klaustreich husband. (What is it with Klaustreichs, anyway?)
I'm still scratching my head over the decision to move this show up to 7pm(CST)............I don't think that did the show any favors. I haven't read the comics either, that being said, John (well Zed and Chas too) seems to be a real complex character with lots of layers left yet to explore. Only thing is, I doubt we are going to get to see them explored. I'm pretty sure the woman that played Chas' wife can also be seen on a show on OWN by Tyler Perry called If Loving You is Wrong........ I am still hoping this show gets renewed........
I love this season of Hart of Dixie. This was an extraordinary episode. Top notch. Next week can't come soon enough.
Couldn't have said it better myself!
It is Tatsu, not Katsu, and she is the hero(ish) known as Katana in DC Comics, which makes me wonder, does she have the Soultaker Sword?
I am someone that has never been keen to have Kitty onboard, but I agree with everyone else that Ophelia Lovibond gave an impressive performance in this episode. I did not like that she beat up Violet, and I totally understand Gregson not wanting her to work for the NYPD any longer. I had my doubts that Simon was really the guy responsible, so it didn't surprise me that Kitty said it wasn't him despite all the evidence to the contrary. When we saw Joan at the end I really thought that she kidnapper would be hiding out in her apartment, and that she would would become the next victim. I did not expect Kitty to be in the apartment, and for her to recognize the voice of Joan's new boss as her kidnapper. Next week should be fun!
Such an excellent episode, it had everything that I was hoping for. Btw, great review. I was actually thinking the exact same about Juliet and her purse lol. So.much.purpose.
Haha, I know, right? There was just so much to love about this episode. Kudos to the cast and crew!
Great recap and analysis. I posted two comments, but they went up in the middle of the thread. Not sure why.
Flipping fantastic. I loved every second of this episode. And juliette turning into a hexenbeast?? LOVE. She's so whiny she actually has a genuine problem now. I hope she keeps it. This is by far my favorite show since Buffy. It's like the Scooby Gang's alternate world cousins. What could be better?!?
I, too, hope she keeps her new Hexen nature. Renard has show no particular ability with magic, and Juliette as a Hexenbiest would be able to complement Rosalee's apothecary skills.

I agree this was an emotional episode on so many levels. Loved the Foosballl in the beginning with Lisbon asking for chicken wings, the lullaby in the Air Stream and of course the ending. I believe the show is running close to real time meaning the episdoes aren't months apart maybe a week to a few weeks at most. That means that Lisbon's undercover jailbird wasn't all that long ago a time where one of Jane's plans almost got her killed. He wasn't going to let that happen again while he was in charge. I don't think either one of them was 100% wrong or right. But they do need to talk and come to some understanding.
For me the episode was great.it felt a lot like season 2. I agree that it was over the top sometimes,but I really liked the fact that it didn't have a lot of musical numbers.The only thing that i didn't like is the fact that we didn't knew that SUE was a fan of KLAINE all this time.that felt kind of rush.it was a way for getting Kurt and Blaine back together before the season ends.I get mixed feelings for how they treat Sam as character.Last season,his story was kind of good but I think they are trying more this year to get him a descent storyline.Also,I know the show is called Glee,because it revolves a show choir,but it's cear tha since season 4 Glee is all about the characters.The characters you loved since season 1 and you loved in other seasons,like Blaine in season 2.For me this season so far is better than season 5.The one thing that still drives me crazy is that they bring old characters that they don't use.The biggest example of this season so far has been Puck.He came and he didn't do nothing.He just sat there and then danced in a couple of musical numbers.I was expecting a storyline with him and Quinn.
