    Grimm: Don't Fear the Reapers

    Leave It to Beavers” combined the show's mythology with its regular monster-of-the-week plot to create an enjoyable, but unbalanced, episode.

  • Episode Summary

    When Nick investigates the death of a construction company owner, he discovers that the suspect has summoned the Reapers to town to dispose of him. Meanwhile, Juliette makes Nick invite Eddie over for dinner.

    • Reapers are not French

      The Reapers are definitely NOT French, and their fake French accent is terrible. I hate it when TV shows do that, hiring an American actor to play a French (or German or Italian...) character supposedly speaking in their mother tongue.
    • Pure Awesomeness

      This show just gets better and better. Loved the action scene....Nick was kicking some Reaper butt.....yeah!!! Very satisfying episode indeed! Also enjoyed the way he sent a strong message back to the other Reapers in Mannheim, Germany.

      As for why they were speaking French in Germany, I can only suspect that because of Mannheim's relatively close proximity to the French border (approx 78 km), there are most likely people there that speak French as well....not too much of a stretch to figure out why that is.moreless
    • Characters becoming very endearing

      Monroe is so funny, I love his character.

      Juliette is hot!

      Nick has become a bad-ass grimm.

      That is all.
    • Leave It to Beavers

      Leave It to Beavers was a truly perfect episode of Grimm and I was very entertained watching because the story with the Beavers and Trolls and Reapers was awesome, the dinner with Monroe was funny and awkward and there was a lot of character development for Nick. It was great watching the same Beaver guy from previous episodes help Nick and try to help his own people in the process. Nick's action scene fighting the Reapers was spectacular and showed just how bad a$$ he is. The ending was great when Juliette showed Nick what people were dropping off and when Nick's message arrived in Germany. I certainly look forward to watching the next episode!!!!!!!!!moreless

    • QUOTES (4)

      • Nick: I told you to meet me, not eat me.
        Eddie: Hey, man, we're not playing paintball out here, okay? You want to practice your Grimm skills, you got to be ready for anything. Now, could you get off me, please? I'm find this a little, you know, awkward.

      • Nick: Monroe, name one aspect of our relationship that we wouldn't have to lie about.
        Eddie: You're right. All the time we spend together, all the sneaking around. God, it suddenly seems so wrong.

      • Nick: Listen to me. I need to find Arnold if I'm ever going to bring this guy.
        Bud: Okay. Okay, if Arnold's hiding, I might know where. If I'm right, I'll come to your house and carve a small series of numbers on the porch steps. The odd numbers will mean that...
        Nick: Or just call me.
        Bud: Yeah. Yeah. Yeah, yeah, that would work too.

      • Parliamentary Officer #1: All those in favor of the witness coming forward? All opposed? I move to request that the Grimm does not cut off our heads for opposing him on this question.

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • Title:
        Referencing the the television sitcomLeave It To Beaver. The series was named after the main character, Theodore "Beaver" Cleaver, played by Jerry Mathers,who lived with his parents June and Ward Cleaver and his brother Wally. This low-key comedy aired in the late 1950s and early 1960s and is often pointed to as a stereotype of the family values of the time. Despite his nickname, Theodore was not actually a beaver.
