    • The Thing with Feathers

      The Thing with Feathers was a perfect episode of Grimm because the story was awesome and this was the first time that the series felt like it was truly coming together. Juliet, Griffin, and Monroe all make perfect supporting characters and if they are developed the same way as the supporting characters of Buffy the Vampire Slayer were then we are definitely in for a treat. There was a lot of character and plot development in this episode and it was interesting to watch Juliet get in on the action. Monroe and Rosalee are a great pair and remind me of the Willow/Oz dynamic in BTVS, and Adalind reminds me of Anya while Griffin is a Zander. This episode shows just how much potential the series has. I was excited, surprised, in awe, and loved this episode. I look forward to watching what happens next!!!!!!!!!moreless

    • TRIVIA (0)

    • QUOTES (7)

      • Eddie: I have a bikram class at 6 a.m. and hot yoga on too-little sleep is how groin-pulls happen.

      • Eddie: Klaustreich, total jerks. Women love them, but it never ends well. Isn't that always the way?
        Nick: I don't know.

      • Eddie: Molly, my girlfriend from high school, left me for a klaustreich, so I might be a wee bit riled up about them. He told her he loved her. He got her pregnant. She ended up delivering his litter at prom. Her parents were not thrilled.

      • Rosalee: Look, I really appreciate you helping me out with all this.
        Eddie: Well, you'll never know when I might need a discount on... tincture of prickle poppy?
        Rosalee: Yeah, that's for, um, romantic stamina.
        Eddie: Oh. Well... no wonder I didn't know what it was.

      • Eddie: Hey, Nick, I thought a vacation for you kind of meant, you know, vacation for me, too.
        Nick: Look, I'm sorry. You know, this wasn't part of my weekend plans. Hey, how was hot yoga? You pull a groin or anything?
        Eddie: My groin is fine, thank you.

      • Juliette: I can't believe you remember what we had on our first date.
        Nick: How can I forget that? That's the most expensive date I ever had in my life.
        Juliette: Not if you add in what happened after that.
        Nick: Ooh. Yeah, or after that.

      • Timothy: Are you insane?
        Nick: Well, I'm in the woods, I just cut a golden egg out of a girl's neck, you tell me.
