“No longer a dark, gray bird, ugly and disagreeable to look at, but a grateful and beautiful swan.”
“My fair Wesen” is the May 2 episode of “Grimm.” Reminder: this article has spoilers, so read at your own risk. Be sure to check out the slideshow for more quotes from tonight’s episode. “Grimm” airs Friday nights at 8 p.m. central on NBC.
Rosalee and Monroe give Trubel a very brief Wesen 101 class. It’s amusing watching Trubel be afraid of them, and Monroe and Rosalee be afraid of her. Through Trubel, we are getting a reminder of how different Nick is from other grimms. Rosalee talking about how important it is for grimms and Wesens to get along is fantastic partially because she is the one bringing it up. This is something that she truly believes, and she has experienced being afraid of grimms and what it is like to be friends with one. Plus, for Trubel, this has to be interesting to hear.
The most interesting part of the case of the week is Trubel’s involvement. Trubel goes on a ride along. It is great to watch her handle a case because it is similar and different from how Nick and Hank handle cases. Trubel acts without regard of the law, but she is able to profile much like a cop does. It is a little annoying how there isn’t any mention of last week’s case. The writers could have shown Wu mentioning it or Trubel seeing crime scene photos.
It’s not hard to fall in love with Trubel. The writers have done a good job of developing her character and providing insight into her past. Her foster parents were killed be wesen, and she says she would have died too if she didn’t run. Now, the question is were they killed because Trubel is a grimm or was it merely a coincidence? Nick asks about the man who did it, but Trubel only saw the wesen. This hints that maybe Nick and Hank will investigate Trubel’s family’s murder, which would be great to see.
Nick and Trubel’s relationship has been great. She is still getting used to being around people, but at the end of the episode, she acknowledges that she has a lot to learn. It is great seeing Nick in the teacher role, since for most of the season he has been having to learn thing as he goes along. Nick feels responsible for her almost immediately. There are some moments where he discusses why that is, and it is great when those moments are between him and Trubel.
