'PTZD' -- Grimm 3x02

Warning: Spoiler Alert

So, they got rid of the zombie affliction from Nick ... for the most part. But there is certainly something strange going on with him looking ashen and feeling super cold to the touch. Maybe it had something to do with the fact that he's a Grimm? Maybe they needed to change the antidote somewhat so that it would have had worked better on him ... or maybe the whole zombie thing cannot be fully gotten rid of inside of a Grimm? I'm thinking it would have be more that since his system is different than normal humans, the antidote would need to have been altered somewhat to work fully on him.

At least the writers aren't going with fixing Nick completely within the second episode, since it seems like there should have been more drama surrounding him being altered the way that he was. Things getting fixed far too quickly not only takes away from the drama, it's kind of annoying.

And there's going to be at least a little bit of drama surrounding the fact that someone died cuz of the fight they were in with Nick while he was a zombie (seemingly anyway). There's bound to be all kinds of guilt for Nick cuz of what happened, even if he was unable to control what he was doing, and he didn't know what he was doing while it was happening. But then, there's also the fact that the others have lied for him (and if they haven't lied, they've conspired to lie for him) and that's going to lead to all kinds of guilt for Nick (and trouble for the others if they get caught).

I'm still kind of suspicious about the captain when it comes to the flashdrive. He may have shown Nick what happened (so that Nick knows that he has it), but he acted like he didn't know anything about it to everybody else. That may have been one thing when talking to Wu (since he's not actually part of the Scooby Gang), but it's another thing when he's talking to Hank (who is part of the gang).

I want to know why he wanted to pretend that his brother is dead, cuz he obviously knows that it's not likely that he is. But there has to be something going on with that; some objective that he has that he can only get to by making everyone believe that his brother has died. But it isn't something that is bound to last, since his brother is bound to resurface and let everyone know that the rumors of his death have been greatly exaggerated.

The captain's mom is alive ... good on her. I had kind of been assuming that she had been dead all of this time, what with his family being the way that it is (sneaky and not above shanking a bitch); but the fact that she's a hexenbiest (and one who was at one time the mistress to the king) means that she's probably sneaky as well. I wonder if we're going to be able to see her at some point, cuz I would actually kind of love being able to see her.
