Worst case scenario:

Spin-off series "Grimm: The Next Generation" featuring the toddlers of Juliette, Adalind, and Trubel.

I just watched the last two episodes. I enjoyed Heartbreaker, but holy cow was Hibernaculum awful. The idea that frozen bodies were being discovered all over town and no one thought anything of it was absurd. And the whole chase to the barn, pile them back up scene was laughable. Very disappointing.

The shark is certainly jumped. It's selfish and small of me to say it, but they need to kill off Russell and Bree-the only good reasons to watch the show-so I can dispense with watching any further without guilt.

I think we can chalk another show off to the meddling of the NBC brass. They do it so well.

Ah, but this episode also had the most wonderful plot development we've seen in years!

Now that Juliette is going to have Renard's baby, the Royals can simply take hers instead of Adalind's, kill Adalind, and leave Portland forever, never to be heard from again. Yes, please.

Juliette will become pregnant with Renard's spawn
and we'll learn that Truble and Wu had a tryst and she's carrying his kid.

Don't forget, the Truble + Wu spawn will later become a part of Wu-Tru Clan ...

Not Grimm's finest hour to be sure. The show is starting to have great difficulty juggling its "mythos" story lines and it "murder of the week" stories. The show needs to simply ramp up to a conclusion of sorts with the Royals and also with some of the other mostly-dropped threads. Too much has been left out there, just dangling, and the rest has started to become a bit too soapy.

The result has been certain characters are now acting out of character, others are getting entirely sidelined, or are being forced into stories just to keep them around. Still other characters are becoming just downright unwatchable. This show is still at a place where it could recover, but it is going the wrong way in a hurry.

Hey, they can always cast a spell, and magically swap babies while still in the womb!! Jules can carry Nick and Addie's baby, while Addie can have Renny's! Meanwhile, Wu was standing too close during the spellcasting, and Rosalee gets impregnated by him, leading Monroe to move in with Trubel.
Ratings gold, right there!

Dazed and confused over high tech.

Sigh...Concrap. The Internet Overlord Cometh
They're not com-tastic!

They either actually do something with the Royals instead of continuing to meander season after season or just drop it since it's been going nowhere for 4 season. As for the baby/relationship plots, those need to go, that's not what most people who watch this show for.

Biggest nit for me was Renard falling to the floor after the apparition clobbered him and we never see him again.?? I also loved how U.S. - Oregon Route 4 was a country asphalt lane without even a center stripe. Sorry, we don't have those around here.

Agree...something has to change.

Don't laugh, about 20 years ago I told someone from NJ we had freeways out here and they were surprised.

Well, I thought for sure that this Wessen was going to bring back the Zombie dead-no-heat thing out of Nick.

Wow this Fridays episode was a throw away episode which had very little to do with plot advancement. We have such an abundance of Wesen why did we need a vengeful spirit. My feeling is the showrunner instead should have thrown away the script and got with the program, literally.

The creature of the week cases have unfortunately been getting weaker and the main plot isn't very interesting.

And from the previews it looks like only more babies and royals! don't know which is worse. I know one thing for sure, I'd very much like Adaline gone! I mean don't get me wrong, she's a looker it's just I don't see at all what her character ads to the show, and then to make her pregnant again

Well, I don't think you can blame the writers for getting her pregnant...

I still do, because there are other shows out there that finds more creative ways around pregnancies unlike this show which has repeated something it's done recently and that's still ongoing if I might add.

By all means... I was just offering an off-ramp for someone who might not have known it wasn't the writer's big idea to write it in. However, I also think that if they had used the usual "creative ways" to "work around" her pregnancy, there would just be complaints: the story-line was just abandoned or Adaline should be around more and taking a larger role in things or why haven't we seen another cat-fight with Juliet yet?
