My DVR(TiVo) did the same thing, and thanks for the reminder to pad the season pass on Grimm.

Maybe I missed something along the way but I don't understand why Nick had to be part of the "purification" process to remove the romance/attraction between Juliette and Renaud. I don't recall him being infected by the cat and if he was, how it manifested in something he needed to be cured of.
post #873 of 1508
If it was there, I missed it also. I think that unintentionally or not, the writers were being vague about what the solutions actually were. All I got out of the dialogue was that Solution #1 required the instrument of infection, so that was tossed out. Solution #2 required all three to do something together that Nick would not like, and evidently for Nick to be purified. It could be a change of command, where the Purified Nick must kiss Juliet. Then (although I am not fond of the idea) the writers could play with true love vs spelled love - which do Nick and Juliet have now?

I wonder if the "purification" to make Captain Renard "Pure of Heart" has anything to do with his change of heart and giving back the key?

I also hope the writers do not wimp out and go to a pure serialized show with only one seasonal story in 22 acts, I enjoy seeing other aspects of the Wessen life and how they integrate into "our" world.

v/r,
C-F

I too was confused about the need for Nick to be "purified" and thought I had missed something...
Nonetheless, it's great to have the show back on Friday nights.
And what a terrific episode this was....maybe the series' best so far.smile.gifcool.gif
It's ALL out in the open now; Nick knows about the Capt. and who he really is.
I foresee these 2 teaming up to kick some major royal arse.wink.gif

NBC was the culprit on this. The episode should have been marked as ending at 10:01, but NBC did not pass that along to the IPG data providers. I recorded "Rock Center" from 10pm-11pm, and had the last minute of "Grimm" at the beginning.

Cannon-Fodder is correct; we don't know why Nick has to drink the purification formula, except that it's part of the two-step "plan B" cure that was "too horrible" for Monroe to say aloud. We only know that after Nick finishes the formula, he, Juliet, and Renard have to do something together as part of the second step to break the spell. Most likely the first act of the next episode will cover this, after which we'll continue into the darstardly Wessen plot of the week.

Wow, PSIP actually gets to score a victory against pay guides? My OTA listing for Grimm said that it was 61 minutes long. biggrin.gif

Well, according to the HOTP thread, Grimm's numbers were down by about 6%. IMHO, that's small enough that it's within the noise band and it'll take more data to determine if it's real or not.

When you look at shows like AI dropping over 30%, I guess it's good news if you only dropped 6%... redface.gif

Actually they did. FIOS had it correct. Must have been your provider.

I just assumed that Nick had to take the potion so that all 3 of their emotional "psyches" could be combined and then re-distributed back to the way they were and/or should be, something like that anyhow, this is uncharted science, not a lot of research available on it.tongue.gifbiggrin.gif

After purification, Nick will no longer have any interest in her and toss her out of his house. wink.gif Hey, it could happen.rolleyes.gif

Nick and Cap will go herd sheep on Brokeback Mtn. Juliet will become a Grimm and poor Monroe will get dumped by Rosalee due to potion radiation poisoning.

We could only hope. The Juliet character and plotline has been annoying for quite some time.
post #883 of 1508
I agree. Juliet is the weakest part of the show.
post #884 of 1508
When her parents named her Bitsie, it emotionally scarred her. She became annoying for life. I mean, how can someone named Bitsie not be. Who takes that name voluntarily if it's a nickname. Is it cutsie-poo for Elizabeth, Betsy, Bitchie or what? If it's not her real name then who takes stage names that remind one of a cross between Tinkerbell and a turd.

I agree, a ridiculous name, and I don't think she's very attractive either, she has very severe looking features, like she's had plastic surgery.

By splitting Grimm up into essentially two-seasons they have pretty much doomed it to de facto cancellation. Great show that it is, I can't see it recovering from this.

If you mean "provider" as in "cable provider", they have no control of the EPG data. If you meant the EPG data "provider" (TMS, Rovi, etc.), I agree. Who provides the data for the DVR EPG on FiOS?
post #888 of 1508
Something was amiss with the ending time. I set my DVR to record one minute past the ending. Which means I always get one minute of the following show. But not with this episode. When it ended that was it. The extra minute was used up.
post #889 of 1508
This episode ran one minute over and ended at 10:01, not 10:00. It remains to be seen whether subsequent episodes will continue this trend.

Ah, contraire my good man....my research into this area is becoming part of my dissertation...wink.gif

Yes we do, they clearly said there were only two ways to undo the connection between the captain and his wife. The first was they needed the original instrument that caused it, which was the cat and they showed, in recaps, how the cat was killed so they could not use it. The only other way was for Nick to do the same process as the captain did.
post #892 of 1508
Nick needed to be "Purified" for the same reason Cappie did. Now, what that reason was, I have no idea. And, if memory serves, there was no mention of purification when he was headed to the hospital when she was in the coma. So, why now?

I think the writers better be careful. While I really like this show, it will piss me off if the start to violate the internal logic they've established.

He did the whole purification just to wake Juliet up.

Good episode, Monroe had some great lines. Glad to see Rosalee back.
Was it just me or did every other scene involve someone getting a phone call? I swear they showed someone on the phone a million times.

I don't mind if they mix a few crime of the week episodes with the over all serial aspect.

Of course not. And when a series becomes really great, what appears to be a Monster of the Week when it first appears later becomes part of the mythology.I'm not convinced the Grimm team has the chops for this (or that NBC is the network for it), but I'm more optimistic than I was.

Crime of the week with a few serial aspects is the best avenue for the show. I liken it to X Files, where the best eps were the monster or crazy of the week, and they got lost when they went down the conspiracy angle.

Chances of Grimm getting canceled are about 1 in a hundred. Even being on Friday, I saw a graphic where it's the third or fourth highest rated show on NBC.

So glad it's back.
Was getting bored Friday nights.

Not bad for a network that's in fifth place. rolleyes.gif
