Wesley (aka: Alexis Denisof) is now a Royal on Grimm happy

Taking the place of Prince Eric who was recently knocked off, Prince Viktor (Denisof) fills his shoes. 

 

You know he does a british accent so well (at least for my American ears), I thought for the longest time he actually was british. It was only in the last couple years I found out otherwise. So it's fitting he would do it again. I'm glad he found a new home, albeit a small roll.

When you referred to "Wesley", I first thought "He doesn't look like the Dread Pirate Roberts"!

Grimm is getting darker… I like it! Makes the comic-relief and domestic efforts of the wessen seem even more "normal."

I like the domestic efforts of Monroe and Rosalee as they work through their respective differences, like another couple we have seen. Also good are the recurring characters like Bud the appliance repairman. I would prefer they don't keep on introducing a new Monster of the Week.

I'm also thinking the "Monster of the Week" wears a bit thin when you have compelling story lines like "Battle of the Royals," "My Mother was a Hexenbiest," and "Who's the Grimmest of Them All." Grimm himself seems to be enjoying his role of "Slayer" a whole lot more. There is a part of his psyche that is still zombie-fied. The Captain and his dysfunctional extended family make things interesting… I won't even pretend I know what's going on there. Still, it's fun to watch. Maybe like Castle, the limitations of time and budget mean a lot of exposition gets left on the cutting room floor.

Speaking of monster of the week; what's to say they do normal police work once in a while with no wesen and just focus on the domestics of the show. Between Nick and Juliette, Monroe and Rosalee, the "royals", the occasional involvement of Bud, Adaline, and a few others, there is enough to fill an hour of programming without bringing the monster factor in each week.

Not that I am complaining at all about how the show is going as I'm happy with the way things are, but I agree there doesn't need to be a "monster of the week" to keep my interest.

 

As far as the royal family drama, there are obviously missing pieces we have yet to see, but I think I'm following the knot as it's unweaving. Just how Renard is "actually" using Nick and how he fits into this mess is curious to say the least. I thought for the longest time Renard was the bad guy then I thought he was the good guy, but with this last episode I'm on the fence, and I don't know what to think.

 

And what's Wesley ... I mean Prince Viktor up too?  undecided

Has he figured out that Adaline is pregnant and with Renard in the room has he put two and two together. Is Adaline in trouble? So many questions and only 42 minutes to answer all of them as well as squeezing in wesen of the week.

Well, Grimm has returned from hiatus and things are heating up… Renard is only possibly the father of Adaline's unborn… whateveritis. I think she's in more trouble than she knows, or can handle. So far, nothing she thought would happen has happened in quite the way she thought it would. She just conned her way into something bigger and badder than a Hexenbiest.

From the promos, Julliette and Grimm each have developed new "powers," no doubt from all the Royal Family shennanigans. Even the Royals are playing with forces they don't fully understand. This is just going to get weirder and better…

See, and I'm still trying to work out whether Reynard is a good guy or a bad guy and what he's up to with Nick. Also, exactly what's happening to Nick and his powers? The fact his metabolism is all out of whack makes me wonder what is yet to happen with him and if he isn't going to "morph" into some sort of new weson or creature of sorts.  And where is his mum?

When last seen, Mum was doing guest shots on another network… :wink

I think Rennard has his own agenda and is relatively amoral… by his own lights, he's a survivor and an outsider, living by his wits. He has a grander world view, perhaps and doesn't subscribe to any particular external moral code. He uses people and circumstances to further his own agenda and isn't actively evil, nor is he actively good. He believes he has a measure of control over Grimm, but I don't think he has as much as he thinks. Grimm himself is growing out of his Policeman's World View, in which everything is black and white… Juliette has been exhibiting unusual "powers" that she didn't have at the series beginning… They may not be turning into Wessen, but their kids might.

Munroe remains, at the heart of the show, the only truly "human" connection. He knows who he is and believes in a right and wrong and wants to live his life in a way that contributes to his community. (Rosalie is included in this … the two of them anchor the story and keep it from flying off to Never-Never Land.)

All in all, I look forward to further developments and a return to the scene by Mom would certainly liven things up… as if we needed that. It might be fun to see her interact with Rennard.

I hadn't thought of Monroe and Rosalie in that way, but I think you have something there.

Re: Renard (looked up spelling) I think I agree with you on most of that, but I still have my suspicions. I can't recall a specific moment for reference, but there are time when I think he is actually looking out for Nick and protecting him from his family and their "agenda," then he does a 180 and acts like he is working for some sort of 3rd faction that is leading him purposefully down a completely different path from Renard's family and from Nick. 

I'm also wondering when and or IF Sgt Wu will ever figure out what's going on.

All in all I'm clueless as to the direction all these characters are taking us and I'm loving the ride so far. Like a long road trip and I have no idea what direction or how long it will take me to get where ever it is I'm being lead.

It's ironic that a wesen is the most human character.

"Good use of irony."

Once again the weson kept the human grounded. Rosalie to the rescue, only this time it had nothing to do with her healing powers or potions but instead the psychological. Another spectacular show!

The fear the weson have shown of the grimm since the beginning tells us of the kind of people grimms are, or at least have been, but is Nick truly different or is he yet to come into his full powers, thus not fully "grimm," yet? Is he different because of the person he is, or is it because he has yet to get his freak on?
