So now they are back to killing Wesen if they can't prosecute them, and what was the surviving Wesen charged with at the end?

Oh, and hey... we buried your mom "here's a picture" if you don't believe it.

Can you imagine the "brain storming" for an episode.

"People, have you got anything...Royals, love triangle, Eve's creation, special child, keys, Wesen juvenile delinquents, mixed Wesen couple/hate groups, the rebellion, the resistance, Nick's kid having powers and big half-sister showing up, Nick's mom back from the grave....how about Zombie Nick?" "Anyone???

Okay, lets use the ugly boy who can't act...he's a what...whatever, since he...she is back and do a monster of the week...oh, and I liked the Nick's mom/grave part, but let's only do a photo in case we get renewed and want to bring her back brainwashed by the Royals. Oh, and the Captain hasn't hooked up in a while or had a baby, so which lead female hasn't he been with...lately. Only the boy...I mean girl...nobody would believe it. Just stick in some random female and next season we can possess/magic/get drunk one of the lead males and have him hook with the boy...sorry, girl. Good job everyone. Can you believe we get paid for this? It is like these things write themselves and I thought working on Lost was easy."

Note Legal Disclaimer: Not that there is anything wrong with Theresa Rubel's appearance/lifestyle/dress, but she could use an acting class. Also, I enjoyed Lost but they did seem to get lost with the direction of the story.

Well Trubel seems to still have her Grimm powers.

Man, the dialog on this show has really gone down the hill. It just doesn't feel natural anymore (if it ever did). The clunky ham fisted scenes where Nick explains how Juliette is now called Eve, and then somebody repeats what he said, accompanied by manic over reactions....Stop expositioning your way thru scenes, just have the characters be smart enough to get it the first time please.

Dazed and confused over high tech.

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

The last two weeks of GRIMM have been the best of the series!! I feel so sorry for the so-called fans who cannot see that this show is on a roll! Fellow fans I work with a rocking this show hard. I love the way the writers and producers have decided that all bets are off and we are going move forward like a bullet train through Japan. This show isn't the same show it began as and that is a good thing. I don't nick-pick every freakin' plot point to death.

This show is now my favorite on TV. It is the one I look forward to most every week.

This one reminded me of an X-Files episode

I enjoyed this one. Too bad they didn't do this two seasons ago. Pulled out of their, assume nothing for this show.

At least the title of the show was amusing: "A Reptile Dysfunction"

I got an ED watching this episode, almost lifeless "Eve", no Adalind and Trubel's appearance was enough

Police could have invented "this guy was wearing a costume and scuba gear" and don't have to explain much else.

So, who was out in the boats at the end of the episode, shooting anything that moved in the water? The locals? The cops? Hired killers (coming soon)? Eve's fan boys?

It was the locals. The sheriff had some throwaway line about everybody and his brother coming out to the lake with rifles to try to shoot the lake monster.

They also had a scene with a bunch of boats out on the lake with lots of rifles and guns.

Yep, we're in America, after all .. "I'm gonna bag me that Lake Monster and hang that Trophy over the Fireplace at the Cabin .. " ..


(which was one of the best scenes in that episode, IMO .. )

Because OUR Grimms are so kick-ass, you're just envious...and I'm willing to bet you don't have any in YOUR city!

Considering it is Portland it's hardly surprising.

Maybe. But I have suspected for a while that the name - Bauerschwein - for this Wesen episode was inspired by:

Braunschweiger.
