“Under such conditions, whatever is evil in men’s natures comes to the front.”

“The Show Must Go On” is tonight’s episode of “Grimm.” Reminder: this article has spoilers, so read at your own risk. To review the last case file, click here. “Grimm” returns on April 4th on NBC.

The circus is in town, and that can never mean anything good. This circus is one that showcases wogued Wesen. The writers have done a good job of recently expanded the Wesen world. This is another aspect of Wesen culture that is generally frowned upon. It is interesting that the Council does not get involved in this because it seems like something they would want to shut down. Rosalee and Monroe do some undercover work, which is a nice change up. It would have been great to see more of Nick and Hank chatting with the circus performers. Did you enjoy the case?

One thing that is still unclear is anytime there are any Wesen powers happening, is Adalind the one doing it or the baby? Adalind has Hexenbiest powers back, but the writers have also shown that the baby has power of her own. When the attacker gets his own gun turned against him, was Adalind the one doing it or the baby? She says she was trying to get him to drop the gun, but that is obviously not what happened. The writers need to work on differentiating the baby’s powers from Adalind’s. It would not be unreasonable to think that Adalind is not completely in control of her powers. What are your theories on Adalind and the baby’s powers?

Here are some thoughts on elsewhere in the episode. Monroe asks Nick to be his best man! This is an adorable friendship moment, but it ends up giving Nick nightmares. He fears are not unreasonable. Grimms are not widely accepted by Wesen, and it has yet to be discussed how many Wesens will be at Monroe and Rosalee’s wedding. There is great potential with this storyline. Alas, poor Sebastien, you served Renard well. Sebastien stays behind in order to assure that Meisner and Adalind get away safely. The writers did a good job of making his death shocking and emotional. Sebastien hadn’t really had a big presence in episodes, and it takes episodes to finally learn his name. The heroic ending helps make Sebastien memorable and lovable. What did you think of the episode?
