Josh is one of the highlights of this episode. He amuses me greatly. It’s nice to get a glimpse of someone who lives with a grimm, but has never been filled in on the secret. I mean Josh's dad, Rolek, does not shy away from using terms that only a grimm or Wesen would know. The whole thing just adds comedy to the episode. I swear a summary of the episode could be, damnit Josh! Did you love Josh?
The writers are doing an excellent job at revealing more about Trubel. They establish that she is a closed off person, but they still give us moments where she opens up. It’s hard to pick a favorite moment. It is expected that Trubel and Nick would get some bonding time, and the scenes with Monroe, Juliette, and Rosalee are a fantastic addition. Juliette and Trubel are great together. I love watching their relationship grow. Trubel breaks my heart every episode. I don’t want her to leave the show ever. Would you like to see Trubel stick around next season?
The reason why Josh is in town is that his dad, Rolek, needs to give Nick something. It’s a dire situation, especially since Rolek is dying. It makes sense that Renard would learn about the dead Verrat in the hotel room, but thankfully him updating Hank and Nick on the situation is about as much of the cop angle as we get. Don’t get me wrong, I love when Wesen and police collide, but the more entertaining part of this storyline is Trubel interacting with Josh and Rolek. It was a little boring waiting for Nick to pick up his phone.
Adalind is being shady, and thankfully, Renard catches on. I’m glad he wasn’t completely tricked by her feminine charm. He is not an idiot. Also, the fact that Renard goes to Wu with this is great. I always love seeing Wu. It is still unclear what Adalind’s end goal is – somehow she is taking away Nick’s grimm powers or maybe just killing Nick? I’m not sure. Her little polyjuice potion is a nice twist. It will be interesting to how she does pretending to be Juliette. What are your theories on Adalind’s scheme?
