'Cry Luison' -- Grimm 4x05
Warning: Spoiler Alert
I suppose that the way to get Nick's Grimm back (as Monroe put it) makes some sort of sense ... to take away what Adalind did, do everything she did backwards. Still, that doesn't mean that I'm not slightly creeped out by the idea of it, but at least it makes some sort of sense.
I am also very happy with the fact that Juliette I now on board with him becoming a Grimm again. It was almost a forgone conclusion that it was going to happen at some point, but I would rather have her on board with the whole thing, than not. It would make the whole thing feel kind of icky, and would create more unnecessary drama than was needed. Besides the fact that I want Juliette to be all up in the Grimm life, cuz I think that she would be awesome at it. Even if she can't see Wesen woge (unless they make sure that she sees them), that doesn't mean that she wouldn't (or couldn't) be an integral part of the team (especially where Nick was concerned).
It would have been nice to see a little bit more fall out of Bud letting it slip that Nick had lost his Grimm, but I suppose that there might be more in coming episodes. I would imagine that there would be others who would come looking for him if/when they hear that he is no longer a threat, and they want to try to kill him cuz of it (thinking that they could get some kind of revenge for all of the Wesen that have been killed by Grimms in the past, and thinking that if they killed him, they might be able to stop other Grimms from being born ... since he still has the DNA of a Grimm, it is likely that he would still pass on the Grimmy powers to is kids, even if he was having some trouble).
Speaking of passing stuff on ... dude whose dad was a Grimm, but who wasn't himself (and whose name I'm completely blanking on right now) ... I wonder if someone found out that his dad had a key. It would seem a little too convenient that they found out that he had one, and then, go looking for it after he's already been cremated. He was old, and his son would have been no help to him against a couple of fully woged Wesen; if they knew that he had it, why not go for it sooner? But maybe there is something else that was going on with that ... something that we don't have the details about just yet (right now, that just seems like the most likely solution).
And now we also have another contender for who Diana's father is. It almost feels like the writers are just throwing in every royal and hoping that one of them sticks (regardless of who would be logical or not). I still feel like Renard's brother is the actual father, and that the reason why we never saw a body from when he supposedly died (and his character got swept under the carpet in a way) was cuz the actor got a gig on another show (perhaps they weren't using him enough, and he needed to get himself some steady work).
It also looks like we're going to be getting a bit more undercurrents of Wesen culture this season. It may not be a whole lot, but maybe a little bit more with people being upset over the fact that Monroe and Rosalee got married. I suppose that it was bound to happen, since there does seem to be a "nice" stroke of racism within Wesen culture when it comes to other kind of Wesen.
