A very good question.

It hasn't been explained how the process of Grimmhood works.

Too true, because no story has required such an explanation. I'm simply hoping that, just like the advent of Faith clarified how the Slayer thing functioned, the introduction of Trubel will force the writers to have Nick say some things out loud that will help fill in the background of Grimms.

The biggest gap, for me, is this: the need for Grimms is obviously world-wide, yet there seem to very few of them, and they are not organized. There are no Watchers, just Nick's mom, her sister, and a trailer. There was a reason the one Slayer was where she was: the Hellmouth.

If only Portland has a Grimm, is it because all the Wessen are somehow migrating to Portland? If not, why is there no apparent evidence of nasty Wessen running amok unchecked everywhere else? If there are Grimms everywhere, why doesn't one of them organize an International Association of Grimms for mutual support and information? They could have conventions and everything. Heck, why doesn't Nick ask the Captain to tell him more about the historical background of all this?

Ach. The more I think about this, the more annoying it gets. It's impossible to believe Nick wouldn't mine the Captain for information about the Wessen/Grimm milieu, as well as study everything in the trailer. Nick must understand everything by now. Which means the writers are purposefully not sharing with us, the audience.

Which brings me back to Trubel being the perfect opportunity for some infodumps from Nick. If they're not forthcoming, I may find it too frustrating to continue.

The nature of these universes are difficult to invent. I remember with Buffy trying to figure out how Kendra and Faith were apparently already slayers even before Buffy "died." The whole thing was iffy.
I really got miffed at the ubervampires who initially seemed too much for a slayer and then were easily taken down by slayers and non-slayers alike.
Its tough to put together a coherent universe especially when you're not sure the show will survive a season.
Overall, we fans are way too whiny about this. Its just fiction!! Stop thinking too much about it!!

Jerry. Just remember. Its not a lie . . . if you believe it. GC

I'm willing to cut them all sorts of slack, but we're most of the way through the third season. It's past time to fill in some blanks.

I'm not surprised over the introduction of a Faith-esque angle, since Faith was co-created by David Greenwalt, and he's also responsible for this show.

So basically Nick is going to teach and train her and then she's going to betray him and side with the enemy, including a new sinister person with influence...I don't know...maybe even...a Mayor???

If the local station follows normal patterns, Grimm will be show at somewhere around 2 or 3 AM on Saturday.


Heads up in Portland, we're now up to game 6 and according to Comcast's guide, Grimm will be shown at 2:07am, Sat.

So apparently she's going to learn about Grimmness mostly off-camera? Nick's answers to direct questions will be "I don't know?"

And we conveniently have a case of Wessenality involving teenage girls just when we have a new teenage girl on the team. Nice job, writers.

Has there ever been a show where the characters were more ignorant of who they are, where they come from, and what they're supposed to be doing?

But he has the Trailer of Knowledge (did they almost say "to the Bat-Trailer!" in this last episode?). So now after several years (or however long it's been in Portland -- the passage of time is another obscure aspect of this series) Nick has... what? Learned everything about the history and practice of Grimmidermy, understands it all, and is ready to pass it on to his Padawan?

And was there really nothing in the books about what Wessen see In Grimm Eyes (the light, the heat)...? It still seems like whenever the writers want to actually tell the audience something about this world and its lore, they have Monroe or Ros do it.

It feels like there really is no underlying rulebook to any of this, and Nick can't explain anything to the audience because the writers don't have any explanations to put in his mouth.

ROFL at the Wesen on this thread, Oink, lonwolf of course a Blutbad and Waboman some kind of fish based Wesen.

I'm still deciding which Wesen I would like to be, maybe I just be a Grimm and hook up with T.Ruble
