Grimm: Let's Discuss Adalind's Baby, And What She Means
Katerine_M

:) Ok, so there's actually quite a lot to talk about. Off the top of my head: - Is she born evil? I think there's a lot to be said for both sides of this argument. On the one hand, as a user commented in the "Mommy Dearest" review, one of Grimm's biggest ongoing themes - if not the biggest ongoing theme, is that a perso...

Troubling Cultural Politics in Grimm's "Once We Were Gods"
The most recent episode of Grimm featured the discovery of a mummified wesen, an Anubis, I suppose. This discovery set off a chain of different cultural and personal reactions: the desire of the human academic to preserve, study and display the find as a valuable historical artifact; the offense at displaying a wesen body, however academically valuable, in any public context by the terrorist-activists of the Beati Paoli, the Wesen Council, and both Monroe and Rosalee; and the less emotionally invested understanding by Nick, Hank and Juliette who are more concerned with solving the homicide of the intruder and the guard than anything to do with the mummy. Ultimately, I found Grimm's resolution of this whole episode culturally tone deaf and many of its characters wildly hypocritical in unacknowledged ways.

There is a relevant and ethically complex discussion to be had about the exhumation of human remains and their ...Read more

Grimm: Career Advice for Nick Burkhardt
Grimm's nearing the home stretch of its third season, and while it has transitioned out of a somewhat shaky start into a solid and more focused series, if we're all honest with ourselves the show's titular Grimm, Detective Nick Burkhardt, hasn't exactly made any progress in professionalizing himself. Sure, he's got his reasons, including a full-time job as a Portland police detective, but again if we're honest, because Portland is apparently overrun by criminal wesen, his day job dovetails a lot with his extracurriculars. And sure, he's gotten better at it. Nick's got a good memory for the wesen he's already encountered, and he seems to have retained the fighting skills he miraculously acquires when he really needs them. But Nick's approach to Grimm-ing is basically the same as it was his first month: encounter new wesen, rummage Aunt Marie ...Read more

Theories: Nick's New "Condition"
What are everybody's theories surrounding Nick's new "condition" in S3? Speculation about what exactly is happening, and what it all means, is welcome. :)

Spoilers! (up to S3E3, "A Dish Best Served Cold")

Here are the facts we know for sure (as of E3). I'm listing every fact I can think of, including the ones that I don't personally think are relevant, in case others disagree:
  • The "dying" thing (where he goes completely grey and cold and has no discernible pulse or breath) happened three times, that we know of, since he was cured from being a zombie.
  • It's unknown how long he was "dead" the first two times. The third time, it was for less than a minute. Because Juliette was there to wake him? Or is that just how long it lasts?
  • Twice, he was asleep. Once, he was awake, and sitting. All three ...

Grimm "The Inheritance" Review: No Grimm Is an Island
"The Inheritance" featured quite a few callbacks to the Season 2 and early Season 3 storylines that were relegated to the back burner during Adalind's baby drama and the homicidal European road trip.

A supernatural crime drama involving a police detective (played by David Giuntoli) who can see the dual nature of creatures among us hiding in human form. As the descendant of the Grimms, he can see their inner natures. He also has the responsibility of being judge, jury, and sometimes executioner for crimes among these "others" for which there are no human laws that apply.
