Does anyone know how Father Gabriel can still be alive after cutting his foot on that rusty nail way back when? I guess the Good Lord gave him a shot of something so he wouldn't die, although we never saw it happen. Too many despicable characters on the show going into next season(Father Gabriel is one of them). The Grim Reaper should have a field day next season.

Personally let Paige and Walter hook up and Ralph and Drew should go away. Clearly Drew makes more effort with Ralph (Bless his heart). And if Paige and Walter are the endgame they should move aside for a boy and his dad. Sorry but this is classic.

Why, oh why? I understand that Happy is embarrassed and doesn't want to get hurt by putting herself out there (understand that feeling quite well, unfortunately); that Toby did mess up but did (albeit kind of terribly) try to fix it; and that it'll take a lot for her to trust him again. I was glad it wasn't one of those things where she does a 180 and makes up with him at the end of the ep (nothing is life is really like that), but I hope they don't drag this out. I want them together (someone else described it as "swooning over" it) but I don't want another "Tiva". I love the realism of Jadyn Wong's portrayal of Happy: she's mad, sad, amused, confused - it's all relatable. Then, I think that Toby's feelings and his actions are realistically represented, but I don't want this constant "getting closer then pushing away" thing to happen over and over. It's a good thing Scorpion's been renewed for a season 2 so we can see what'll happen, or else I'd be dropping this show like a bad habit. Then, I love Toby's continual push of Walter, and that Walter is starting "to have feelings". However, I wish they'd do something with Paige, because I think I am "already done" with that whole thing.

I'm feeling like a broken record about Adalind and Juliette. They have created such a rich world to explore and they're holding back and giving us dumb Adalind and Juliette in jeop or off kilter all the time. IF they can go somewhere awesome with Juliette and make her a powerful partner for Nick or I'm even ok with a cure and her being the "normal" anchor for the group but do something with her and get on with it rather than making her the focus of attention. I really thought they were headed somewhere epic with the arc that led to the attack on the Nazi Bludbotten's. To see the gang in full force was wonderful. I actually liked the mystery bit but think the writers missed a huge opportunity to explore and go somewhere unique with the hermaphrodite thing. The idea of the two halves having a relationship, with normal ups and downs instead of the one being better than the other, trying to make a living, bereft without each other, etc. could have been art. And I agree with the roundtable that the team's attitude toward the vesen was uncharacteristically callous. I would really like to see Nick step up as a Grimm. I feel all along they've played him as Grimm lite so he blends in with the real world. I'd like to see him take on more of an Arrow vibe and use his role to make a difference. And again like a broken record I want to second what several panel members said about Monroe and Rosalee being the heart and soul of the show. And maybe now Wu, too.

Grimm Round Table: He's a Zauberbiest, Not a Hexenbiest!

I have my theories about the genetics of Hexenbiests vis- 'a-vis Zauberbiests but really, I think Kathleen makes the best point: We just don't have a large enough sample size to draw any definite conclusions. And Renard is only a half-Zauberbiest at that (King Frederick is his father.) Having a full Zauberbiest to compare him to would help a lot. I thought that Adalind would realize that having Nick's baby would give her a powerful bargaining chip. "Hello Kelly. You have my daughter and I have your grandchild. Let's talk." Instead she starts scrambling to create a new poorly conceived (yes, I said it!) alliance. But Allison has a point. Maybe she figured she needed to find a cover quick in order to protect herself from the Royals' wrath while she works out her long term strategy. Wow, the Wesen of the week story has really generated a lot of controversy. Gender identity issues are complex enough but introducing hermaphroditic Wesen who are not only conflicted about whether they are male or female but actually are both takes things to another level completely. It was either pure naivety on the part of the writers to think that the way they resolved the crime of the week would not ruffle people's feathers; or it was a stroke of genius to end the story on such an ambiguous note in order to promote conversations about some difficult subjects. I'm guessing the truth lies somewhere in between. And, btw, there's an interesting Jungian interpretation of the relationship between Linus and Stacy ... that I won't indulge in.

I totally agree that the writers totally dropped the topic of the week with the sexual ambiguity issue. This was not about transsexualism but about hermaphrodites which are both sexes and apparently personalities in the same body. And they really blew it!

Interesting no one is worried baby Neil will turn evil but hes also a product of true love.

So I feel like we all would have assumed that Rumple's happy ending would be getting Belle back. however his speech to her while she was asleep makes me think that isn't the case at all. I am betting right now that he is going to have the author write Neal back to life, maybe at the expense of his own life. If I'm right I will not be happy because of course then the love triangle will be back again and I'm done with it.

Agree really bad episode. Rowena is not a big baddy and I really don't care for the connection to the MOL. Let's get back to the MOC and lets finish off Metratron please. This season has too many loose ends that end to be tied up.
