Seems highly improbable.

Besides the fact that she is clearly not a good actress, he is correct. Grimm's EP visited her college, heard her read and gave her the job. Why? I have no idea, but that's how it happened.

Honestly, the first episode that she was in, I just figured it was nepotism that got her the job. I have seen kids in school plays that are better actors.

Thank You......finally someone who feels the same as I do about this actress. Just amateurish. Hannah Lloyd (Diana) is a better actress than she is.

Weird. I had no idea. Thanks.

Maybe the show has a severe budget, they needed/wanted a junior Grimm character and this was the cheapest way to add one.

I'm glad they did (add the character) as I enjoyed Nick having a junior Grimm sidekick he could relate to and show the ropes.

Yeah, I thought her addition was one of the few good moves the show ever made, and it's a shame they never spent more time developing the way Grimms have to pass down their heritage to the next generation, because the whole structure of Grimmhood seems quite scattered to the point where it's a miracle there are any Grimms left. Most of them probably got so confused by their first Wesen encounter that they couldn't defend themselves and got killed on day one.

I too enjoy her character. What's with all the negativism?

It is a bit odd that Grimms don't do better passing down their knowledge.

I thought Trubel was a good addition to the cast .. kind of a Trainee style .. that's why I wondered why she disappeared .. I just don't recall any lead-up of story line that dealt with her exit ..

That's because HW called her and told her to leave, so she left. There were no other plot developments to explain her departure. This is the third or fourth time this has happened, so nobody should be surprised. They spend the money to add her to the cast during season and midseason finales, and then they give a flimsy excuse to explain why she's MIA the rest of the time. Hopefully she'll be back for the series finale.

Dayum. They went all Game of Thrones on the PPD. Didn't see that coming. Gonna miss Hank and Wu. Season finale next week. Looking back on the 6 seasons it was a fun ride. I enjoyed this show and liked the cast.

When you have a magic stick and perhaps a magic spear a lot of things are possible. How many times have we seen a reset after something like this - many, many.

I think they will "stick" around.
