What's the Worst Show on TV 2014?

Love, love, love AMERICAN IDOL. I hope to hell they don't take that off the air.

The way I see it, there has to be something more than just lingual distinction. For one, Renard can't open the grimoire. We've never seen him perform any of the kind of supernatural spellwork that Hexens do. In fact, whenever he needs something magical, he goes to someone else. Unfortunately, our sample size of Zauberbiests is, well, one. And Renard is also Royal, too, which may complicate things in ways we don't know. We don't know if Renard's lack of skill in things magical is a Zauber thing or it's just him. To make things worse, Renard isn't exactly the chatty type about his heritage!

Would it be that Hexenbiests are the ones that can do magic and that male counterparts, Zauberbiests can't ?

That might be the case, but since "zauber" means "magic," it would be a bit strange. Of course, we're not the ones making the rules of this universe. :-)

Well they can still be magical creatures since the mother would be a henxenbiest. However maybe the males can't do magic. If you remember, when Adalind was pregnant, having a boy was okay but a girl would mean much more money. So females are more valuable probably because they can do magic.

I liked the hermaphrodite flatworm mystery. Unique! I am intrigued by these subtly portentous words from Renard to Juliette: "Well, you do have abilities that defy explanation. How you learn to use them will determine what you become. You're more than I'll ever be. The way this happened to you — you're one of a kind." One interpretation of his words is that she has more control over how her future plays out than she thinks, and her character will determine her decisions and ultimately her destiny. One of a kind. Maybe she becomes a "good witch of the north" with teeth. Or a really evil hag, fueled with the rage of a scorned and betrayed woman. I can see why Juliette would turn to Renard, but we went through this trio trope before, and she must realize she is placing all three of them in a vulnerable position. The scenes showing Nick in reflection, remembering scenes with Juliette lend me to believe they will reconnect, and stronger than ever. Sure as hell hope Adalind doesn't turn to Nick to find a father. Too soapy for me!!

Agreed.

Could it be as simple as witch vs warlock? Typically witches are female and warlocks are male. Could the distinction be just that simple? Or, what about languages? Some have male and female tenses of words. Just a thought.

Never forget the conversation that Silver had in the first season where he clearly stated he was only and always would only be out for his own good. Yep. That's been true all along. He's also brilliant.

I love it! I think it's great when the fans are involved enough with a show to come up with complex (even convoluted) explanations for canonically-unexplained aspect. Why *is* a Hexen different from a Zauber? (And what are those differences?) And why do there seem to be so many more Hexens than Zaubers? I do hope that Grimm addresses these questions at some point in canon.

Once Upon a Time Round Table: Who Gets a Happy Ending?

"Debate Ariel’s theory. Is it that villains can’t get happy endings or is it that they go about getting them the wrong way?"
It's the author. IRL villains get happy endings all the time. It's one of the tenets of the "Life's not fair" maxim. So what's keeping them from getting happy endings on Once Upon a Time?
