P.S. I'll check in next season. I'm listening to he AfterBuzz TV and GRIMM Podcasts. It is nice to find folks who still enjoy the show.
I still like the show too....Liking it is what makes putting up with disappointing storylines hurt. Akin to sports team love. You support your team, but can't help but worry, fret, grouse and scream when decisions are made you can just see won't work (for you.).
TNT has the reruns on Friday afternoons, and I caught part of the season 3 ender- Nick losing his Grimmness at Monroe &Rosalee's wedding, followed by the very first episode. I found myself feeling nostalgic for that early show feel/vibe that was there. It was fun, and some of that zest has sadly gone missing this season.
I realized something after watching the pilot episode. Everything that's happened is all Analind's fault. Had she not tried killing poor Aunt Marie in the hospital- while Nick was sitting asleep at her bedside, and simply waited until he left, Renard's master plan would have worked!!! He'd have his own personal loyal Grimm under his control, none the wiser that he was behind killing Auntie...
Tonight's episode was a vast improvement, pity it took so many not so great episodes to set up the season's end game. Though I will gripe over something...I hate how the writers have treated Hank's behavior towards Juliette. He was friend to both of them, not just Nick, but ever since the Juliette amnesia arc, he's been written as having little to zero interest in her well being, outside of how it affects Nick. Would've been nice to have him go to her and talk to her after learning of her transformation. Try to help her. But no, we get him pulling a gun on her without hesitation, because it's all about Nick, his friendship with her forgotten.
Positive thoughts, at least Wu didn't conviently pull out digital scans of all the books in the trailer. And I had to chuckle over Kelly Burkhart's email name.
