'Cry Havoc' -- Grimm 4x22
Warning: Spoiler Alert
Well, that was a giant pile of crazy, wasn't it?
So, we have someone to blame for the Jack stuff ... someone that will keep the police happy and away from Renard (so that he can continue being the captain, and no one will suspect that he was the one that was doing everything ... well, ok, so it wasn't technically him, but as he and Hank were saying, it would have been blamed on him if he tried to explain it). And they've left it open so that we will still have Viktor around, and I am guessing that he will probably be the king now, since he was the next in line after the king. And with Diana getting rid of the king, I'm guessing that things are going to be very different for the royals, since it seems that having her very early life with a Grimm has created a great deal of influence on her. It looks very much like she is going to be going along with the resistance, and she will be a great big weapon for them if they choose to use her that way.
I'm curious as to what was going on with the kid, and who she was talking to on the phone when Bud thought that Nick was calling her. Probably not Josh. I wouldn't be at all surprised to find out that the FBI agent (whose name is escaping me right now) has something on the kid, and is using that to make sure that the kid does whatever it is that she wants; it certainly looked like they were setting things up that way for next season. But what could it be that the FBI agent has on her? Maybe she's holding Josh captive? The kid seemed a little bit cagy when Bud was asking about Josh, so it's possible that's what it was.
Juliette getting killed ... I know that there are going to be plenty of people who are probably happy about that; I have the feeling that she wasn't exactly a fan favorite, but I still would have liked to see her stick around. I kind of hope that this turns out to be a giant fake out, cuz I do like her (the old her anyway), but the writers do seem to have been gearing things up so that she wouldn't be brought back anytime soon. Still, there may be some interesting things that the writers could do in the fallout of the kid killing Juliette. Intellectually, I have the feeling that Nick will understand that she was only trying to save his life, but at the same time, I can see him being angry with her over it (even if there really isn't time to be angry with her, seeing as it seems like they aren't going to have time to even think and things are going to pick right up next season).
I just hope that we aren't going to see Adalind turn into one of the gang now that Juliette is gone and there will be a new baby. Not only does it feel like it's kind of weird after all the things that she's done to them already, but it also feels a little bit like it would be a replacement of Juliette, and if someone else comes into the gang it should be someone they know they can trust a little bit more than Adalind, and someone who wouldn't seem to be a bit of a replacement of a previous member.
Whatever is about to happen, I'm actually kind of hoping that the kid sticks around this time, and they don't get rid of her midseason (which I probably wouldn't have said at the beginning of this season).
