Fantastic review for a fantastic series finale. The thing about Parenthood is that is stayed true to itself till the very end. The Braverman's taught us that life is going to be messy, it is not going to be easy and it is not always going to go the way you want it BUT you have to enjoy the life you have and find happiness even in the small things. This show has a special place in my heart for many reasons and I am going to miss seeing this family every week.
Clearly I can't spell Annalise's name correctly.
I am CONVINCED that Analose killed Lila. She is the only one with the power and access to place Sam's DNA everywhere. If this ends up being the outcome then Viola Davis is going down in ShondaLand history because she's insane! I can't wait till next week!
The opening cut away to The Wizard of Oz was truly spectacular. You know those memes of "hit you right in the childhood"? That's how you hit a person in the childhood. Fucking hilarious, and sad together. Amazing start.
there should be more guys like Matty...yes, he was harsh with Debbie, but she really indeed raped him, and in a way made him a "possible criminal"...she is smart, she just needs to stop this "being a woman" phase...and Fiona's behavior does not help! Debbie's words to Fiona at the end, were very grown-up: "I do not like to be told the way I feel". so Fiona couldn't get yet another asshole, what do you know? here is another very fine man for you on the line!!! whaaaat??? anyway...why do they need to ruin a possible normal love interest for her? I am referring to the preview for next ep. the guy is already declaring after a couple of dates...why can't she find someone nice, interesting, into her that does not freak her out??? uffff....I am annoyed by the way the writers are "treating" Fiona...
They actually shed all the purposeless characters like jeremy,matt,enzo for one episode & let the main arc flow seamlessly in this one.The Merge-The result was more than obvious for quite some time now.Kai isn't going anywhere since we all know he's the big BAD for this entire season.He's going to pop in and out until the end.I really hope Bonnie kills him brutally in the season finale.He's just bad news!As for luke,the character was solely a plot-device from the beginning,no wonder he ended up dead.But he did step up to save his sisters-both of them-i admire that even though he failed in the process.I'm glad liv is safe,for now.And,can someone kill Papa Parker NOW,Damon please do the honor next time he randomly pops up.He's an ass.The cancer-The entire episode mainly focused on this particular track & i have to say it was very well done.Real mature & sensible.The steroline interactions & mother-daughter scenes were really heartbreaking.I feel really bad for caroline.What a horrible position to be in!I'm really relieved to see she didn't die at the hospital,that would've been horrible.Delena-I'm glad they kept their interactions as minimal & realistic as possible,although i could've done without that odd kissing scene at the end.A warm hug would've been sufficient.Oh,well... Overall,another great episode this season.Looking forward to see Bonnie's birthday & the girl herself in the next one!

I mean I am a big fan of spy dramas. Alias is one of my top five favorite shows of all time. Although I've never considered Scandal to be a spy drama this episode felt like one. So I'm guessing that's why I felt the whole Ian being the leader was very predictable. Other then that it was a good episode. More excited for next week though.
Hi all, Interesting discussion. I agree with pretty everything you've said, but to join in, I'll add my own responses to your main questions: 1. "Grimm has always tried to find a balance between "case of the week" episodes and more serialized storytelling. What do you think about this, especially in terms of this week's episode?" Not a bad mix, but I gotta say, I don't need a new wesen species every week. I don't even need a murder mystery via recurring wesen. I feel impatient to see the bigger picture regarding the Royals, Renard, baby Diana, and the keys. The keys need to take shape. It's been a full season and no movement in the keys since Hank pulled one from the old cane. 2. Juliette's now a Hexenbiest, and it's only getting worse for her. What do you think about this storyline so far? I'm all for it. I loved Tribunal because Juliette put her own serious worries aside to focus on Rosalee and Monroe. I loved how she blew off the punk's head (in self defence) with no major guilt tripping. I only hope the writers don't drag out her denouement to Nick. I'm done with all their drama and just want them to kick some royal ass together, and be happy. Let the love-drama be over. Or if we gotta have relationship drama, shift it to Trubel and Josh, or get someone for Hank. 3. "Any thoughts now that Sergeant Wu has finally been brought into the group?" Ditto to Doug: "Talk about an overlong arc on that one!" In fact, ditto to all four of you. Wu shows himself to be the better man by his willingness to forgive Nick and Hank for hanging him out to dry. I can see Drew Wu becoming the team librarian. He'll probably put all those books into a spreadsheet, cross-referencing all the Wesen by traits, places, dates, and the source document book. Create a new kind of grimmoire. 4. "When Grimm first started, it was pretty much Nick stumbling around in the dark on his own (with occasional help from Monroe). What do you think of how things have evolved since then?" I love the team SCOOBY feeling, but it's on shaky ground for me, because I don't trust Sean Renard. I want to trust him, but I don't. The writers need to convince me that he didn't simply flip character from seasons 1-2, where he nearly killed Aunt Marie, told Adeline to hex poor Hank (nearly to death), and deeply coveted the "Three Coins in a Fuchsbau" (his megalomaniacal balcony scene). It is possible that Renard — relying on prior experience and family history — only knew one way to work with a Grimm, via manipulation (hence the stuff I seasons 1-2), but now he's perhaps learning that the old Grimm-Royals norms need not apply. It could — fingers crossed — parallel the way Grimms (Nick and Trubel) and local law-abiding wesen (like Bud) are learning to trust, not to automatically hate and fear each other. 5. Fave scenes? Ditto to all the great scenes you've mentioned, (Wu in the know, Wu telling off Acker, Wu killing the wesen, Juliet taking out a few wesen (with her gun, and with her powers), everyone striding out of the police station to save Monroe and Bud). Etc. Also, I loved all the scenes where Nick truly showed how concerned he was about Monroe. He got emotional several times with Shaw and Acker, and I cheered when he tossed his badge on the captain's desk saying, "This is getting in the way!" Yay! In some episodes, Nick strikes me as too cool — condescending almost— towards Monroe. And I totally loved the scene in the limo, en route to the airport. ou won't even know we're there." We'll blend right in."
Was Hattie in the montage at the end of the episode, or did I just miss her?
When did Max get a job, or did I just miss that? Was that in the montage? And I feel the same way about Hattie was she in the montage?
