So I'm going to try to explain the German words. I wondered why Monroe not even bothered to explain what he meant to Nick and Hank, but I guess that this is just his mean streak. :-)
A human and a Wesen will have a wesen child if the human is Kehrseite-Genträger, which means they carry the wesen genes of their (wesen) parent and pass them down to the child.
A Vorherrscher as Monroe called a child with wesen parents of different species wouldn't be a hybrid. The german word "vorherrschen" means to predominate, so their child will be either Blutbad or Fuchsbau, depending on whose genes are stronger.
Very interesting!! And cool too!! Thanks for sharing.
Thanks for that; quite helpful. :)
Though (assuming predominate is a perfect translation) I'd say that a Vorherrscher could still be a hybrid, with Wesen traits contributed by both parents; the word simply implies that the child would tend to strongly favor one or the other - at least, that's the best explanation I could think of which fits what we know of Renard, who is quite explicitly a *half*-Hexenbiest. (Or rather, half-Zauberbiest.)
Of course, Hexenbiests seem to be a bit unique in many ways, so...
I like this show, but sometimes, like in this episode, they get so far from any reality it makes it hard to enjoy.
First of all, there is no way that a mass casualty incident would be managed by one Firehouse. Yes, budget cuts, other houses being busy etc. may delay response time, but this incident went on for a long time. Units from surrounding jurisdictions could have been there within minutes. I think having other units there would not have taken away from the fact that 51 was the crew doing the majority of the work, but would have made it a whole lot more believable.
I know they don't want the actors wearing their masks all the time so we can see their faces, but fighting that car fire with no masks on, really?
When they ran out of water they could have at least used hydrant pressure (just hook the hose directly to the hydrant). Not the best, but at least its water.
It was also ridiculous at the end when McLeod reviewed the incident and basically considered it a success. A tanker almost exploded taking out all of the victims, firefighters, etc. Even when cutting costs, departments need to look at safety.
So, as I've said before, I like the characters but sometimes have to put my head in the sand when the medical or firefighting scenes totally depart from reality.
I totally agree with Dee's comments. The first thing you learn in First Aid 101 is never remove an impaled object until you can get definitive care.
I couldn't figure out why no one seemed to be looking for a kid who had been missing for nearly 24 hours anyway?
I guess we all leave our phones sometimes, but it doesn't seem like many people go running in an urban area without a phone, especially a firefighter who should know better.
That said, I generally like the acting and story lines on this show, just have to look past the medical and firefighting inconsistencies,

The sign on the hand is that tattoo of the Verrat. We've seen it a few times on the show. They seem to be aligned with the royals. The big time you might recall is from Season of the Hexenbiest? Season 2 Adalinde came to Portland to try and get the key for Eric and she was accompanied by 4 of the Verrat. Nick took them out like a whole lot of awesome with that wierd bat/club after Monroe lured them out of the hotel.
What a wonderful revue. You made me feel the close
Proximity between Bones and the professor with your heartfelt description of the crazy math that I almost wanted to learn and experience. Well, maybe.. good job!
i love this

Done like dinner. Ross with Christina was the last straw. First he kills Brooks then he's being a huge d*ck to Meredith and now this? All without consequence btw He hasn't been reprimanded for any of these things which sickens me to death. This show needs to end this season.
I like what the writers do for BatB2. I want Cat to end up with Gabe instead of with Vincent because Gabe is human. But I like the romantic moments shared by CatVin, I wish they could have a baby in the show and see the genetics of their baby if it's a human or a beast. If Cat would be a mom in the story, I want to know how she would defend her baby and as for Vincent I'd like to know how he could protect both Cat and their baby. And for Gabe I'd like to know how far he would truly show his love for Catherine. This would definitely be an interesting plot. BatB is not just a story of romance anyway. The writers of the show knows what they are doing and I will just stay tuned of what's going to happen next.
Such a good episode! I don't understand why this show isn't more popular!
