    • A good one.

      9.0
      Actually strongly disliked Juliette in this one (the character, actress played her well). Like you're 'cheating' on whatever you have with Nick, which we know you think because of how you're torn up about it. The bed is Nick's too, it is his house and he's been nothing but supportive, sleeping on the couch is respectful of him sure. But when he says he's sick of the couch she snaps at him.. like why don't you get out of bed and respect him for being nice to you and let him have his own damn bed, you're the one cheating.



      He comes to arrest Adalind and you tell him off like he's going against you intentionally, nothing to do with the fact that (realistically) she is a suspect in Hank's assault and her mothers murder... justifiably.



      Anyway, good episode though. I'm glad that Sean's secret is finally coming out, i liked that it wasn't too soon in the series like some reveals are, but it wasn't so far away that we just don't care anymore.



      Love me some Adalind, and hate her too. She really is witchy! Poor girl is just a bit too naive and gets used a bit too easily by people though. But I'm sorry Juliette how is it not suspicious to you when someone who's practically a stranger, your friends ex, is drilling you about a trailer.. like how she got to talk about the trailer was smooth, but once she was on it, it was a bit obvious ha.



      Liked Monroe here too, always fun seeing him get in on things, and walking away with the murder weapon.moreless
    • Loved this!

      9.5
      I just loved how action-packed this episode was. It really brought everything to a head, very neatly, and even with all of the action, I was never confused about what was happening or why. Everything flowed perfectly, and left me very, very anxious for the next episode (for which, I then had to wait 4 months!)
    • Beauty and the [Hexen]Biest

      10
      Once Upon a Time, a dashing Prince lost his father at a young age because his mother's heritage threaten to divide the kingdom. Since royals were aiming for blood, the wesen mother hid her Prince in Portland, in the care of an evil hexenbiest who tried to seduce him as soon as he became a Police Captain, when he refused, Adalind cursed him with the chance to seek his innermost heart's desire, without the power to have it. For nothing was more dangerous than betraying a Grimm, the last chance wesen had for peaceful coexistance.



      And so, the Prince went to a Spice shop, hoping that the merchant would grant him release from this condition, if not for him then at leat for the veterinarian he fell in love with. The merchant was upset and did not accept these terms. See, the Grimm is his best friend and the blutbad couldn't help out the vet . Belle begins to feel guilty about breaking her promise to the [Hexen]Biest and uses honesty to see him back at his castle. Telling her boyfriend that she has feelings for another man, Juliette gets dumped and Nick released. Upon returning, Belle will find the [Hexen]Biest, for neither one cares whether or not the curse is broken, their love is no longer a betrayal to the Grimm.moreless
    • Great Show, Least Fav Episode...

      6.0
      Maybe, perhaps, ummm... it's just me but, wasn't the writing off track just a tad? This has got to be one of my favorite shows on TV this season, however, this episode's writing - screenplay, was adumbrated somewhat. The characters lines, for the most part, were qwerky and written as if by a rookie who just stepped into the studio arena for the first time. Now... the overall plot and theme met my expectations to the hilt... thanks for that. Come on... don't let me down again writing staff, make the characters shine like they should... give them decent lines to act out. Watch it again to see if i'm off the mark... or not. Ahhhh!moreless
    • Romeo & Juliette must die!

      8.0
      First off, love the episode for the fast pacing, bring a head to quite a few story arcs, but hate a lot of the characters interactions (read Nick and Juliette!). Else, I would have given it a higher score. Next bit is my personal rants about the development of the show and the Juliette character.





      Frankly, I like Ms. Tulloch's portrayal of Juliette in season 1, nothing really special but still ok. In season 2, probably due to the story-line, the character of Juliette seems all over the place and highly inconsistent. She seems to cycle from quirky, neurotic, confused to downright idiotic in some situations. I especially dislike her naivety in this episode and the sudden out-of-character outburst in "La Llorona". Whatever goodwill I have towards Juliette went completely out the windows after this episode.



      Sometimes, I really wonder if the writers are out to purposefully screw with the viewers or the actors (maybe both)? By making an already "thin" character like Juliette goes through the whole "Star-cross lovers" kitsch with Nick, it feels as though they are out to makes her totally unlikable! I personally feel that it is totally unfair to the character and I rather they kill her off so as to inject some needed dynamism and darkness into the show and perhaps Nick's psyche. Frankly, I feel that might make the show more interesting and Nick into a better (and darker, harder... like his mom) Grimm.moreless
