'Natural Born Wesen' -- Grimm 2x14

Warning: Spoiler Alert

So, there is a council that is supposed to make sure that everything runs smoothly, and no one figures out that there are actually Wesen running around with "normal" humans. Can't say that I'm terribly surprised, not with there also being Reapers and Grimms running around (who also seem to work as something of a deterrent to the kids getting all crazy-like and showing off who and what they are).

But if there is a council, and the council will so whatever it takes to make sure that no one figures out that there are Wesen out there, it makes me question what the Grimms are really for. Up to this point, it seemed like the Grimms were something like law enforcement for the royals ... and that at some point they were doing the job that the council seems to be doing now. But maybe that's the point? Perhaps the Grimms were doing this job at one point, but they decided that they no longer wanted to be the lapdogs of the royals and decided that they would do their own thing; and because of that, the council was formed out of necessity. Since there was no one doing the job that the Grimms had been (not only in keeping people in line through brute force, but also keeping them in line out of fear), those who were in charge needed to think of something quick ... so they created the council, and made sure that the people that were on it took care of anyone who endangered everyone else. And it does seem that the council is a separate thing from the royals, even if the Reapers may be in their pocket. I totally don't see Renard contacting someone within the council as anything to do with the royals, even if he is one on his father's side; being half a hexenbiest would make him want to keep everything a secret, as far as I see it.

And speaking of Renard, I'm glad that he seems to be joining the Scoobs. Even if he was an awesome mysterious figure, I like it that he is trying to help Nick with the Wesen stuff. That may only be because he wants to stick it to his family, but right now ... that's completely alright with me. Sometimes, the enemy of my enemy is my bestie. Nick and the other Scoobs may need to worry about Renard later on, but at least they don't need to worry about him right now ... and he can give them a ton of help when it comes to Wesen and royal stuff.

The holes in the house with Juliette ... why do I get the feeling that those are supposed to be a metaphor for the holes in her memory? And the weird silvery flashes ... that they're supposed to be the firing of synapses inside of her brain? I kept thinking through all of that that pathways were being reformed, and she was going to start remembering again when all of that freakiness was over. And that voice she heard at the end of the episode ... didn't Nick tell her that exact thing before her memory went? I would not be at all surprised to find out that she is going to start to remember him within the next episode or two, and you know what would be really nice once that all happens? If she finally was able to find out everything that has been going on. I don't like it that she's been in the dark the way that she has; she should have been the first person that Nick told about what was going on with him, and that is a fact. And once she finds out, if she is on board with everything (which I think that she would be, if she decides that she wants things to go back to the way they were with Nick), I have a feeling that she would kick ass as a member of the Scooby Gang ... besides the fact that she would be the one that helps Nick remain strong and sane through everything ... and would be his compass when things get out of control. I can just imagine Nick's mom coming back, him finding out everything, going a bit berserker, and Juliette being the one to remind him of the man that he is.
