Before you downvote me: I don't write what the episode is about, that's what you watch it/overview is for. I write how I felt, things I liked or didn't like etc, things I want to rant about and that others may relate to also.
For me, no offense to Juliette at the start, I get you have no idea who this man is, so it already must be weird having him in 'your house'. But why do you get the bed? Like it is his house too, he has lived there for years.. but he is the one sleeping on an uncomfortable couch and you look kind of annoyed that he's upset? Like why not have a weekly rotation.. take turns with the bed.. Just my observation. Do feel for Nick, crappy situation he's in and I know that it happens in real life that people wake up with no memory of loved ones.
Hank has gotten a bit annoying since he saw the trailer and the history of Grimms. He automatically seems to assume the worst of Nick. And I mean here, he got over it quick enough, thankfully. Which is the good side of him. But he seems to assume Nick just wants to kill all Wesen sometimes. And I like that Nick isn't like that and how hard it is for him to convince people of that.
I thought it was a bit poorly written at the start. Nick sees the photos burning, and he's a trained detective but Hank thinks he was imagining her face and Nick just saying "don't lie to me" is what EVERY cop, not just Grimm's say to people.. yet Hank gives him this disapproving look. Not very realistic in the GrimmVerse for me.
Was that 911 dispatcher that took the call from the tortured dude stupid? I get they have to remain calm and follow lines but "I kidnapped a girl" screams "donna" "do you have information" like what the hell? The moment he said he kidnapped her should've tipped you off not to talk stupidly... But I suppose she has a job to do.
I like to believe that they deal with lots of just human cases in between the wesen cases. But seriously, people would complain if they had an episode without Wesen.. He's a cop, he'd deal with them off camera.
Yay to seeing Bud again, he's a bit of a cute one. I liked how him and Monroe both reacted quickly to seeing the symbol.
I actually thought it was kind of a good story, the idea of a Wesen trying to frame a Grimm. I mean why not.
What I love most about this show, is how realistic of a cop show it is! Like Nick pretty much tells his captain and Hank EVERYTHING he finds, except Wesen stuff. But he doesn't try and cover things, or lose things (almost mostly), but he tells everyone everything practically. He takes his partner with him most places opposed to going alone, and always being in trouble and trying to keep unnecessary secrets. A lot of shows make people tell pointless lies where the truth would've done nothing for their 'secret' just for drama. Not here. I like that.
I like Nick not just killing every Wesen (obviously not much of a show) but I agree that it's wrong to just kill for the sake of killing the Wesen.. I like that he only cares about crimes being committed.
It's kind of suspenseful with Bud because this show is willing to kill people off (as we know in the later seasons) very easily, but he's also minor enough that he wouldn't matter if he did die.. But I'm glad he didn't. And I was loving his arguing with Ryan about what a Grimm is and how Ryan has his own opinion of a 'real Grimm'. "You're crazy not that I mean to criticise" I love the chatterbox. I actually felt a bit for Ryan, how he hates himself and he was a weird looking Wesen. Makes me think of mentally ill people, trying to be something they're not. He truly hated himself and looked up to being a Grimm.
Loved the hug from Bud!
Called the bad guy before it was revealed, but I was a bit surprised at the same time. I liked him and did hope it wouldn't be.
