Alright, we’ve got two episodes to discuss, so let’s get right down to it. The most important part of the first episode deals with Renard and the political drama that pops up every now and then. Some things become clearer in this episode. First off, Renard is meeting with the resistance, a group who hate the royals. Speaking of royals, Victor has taken over the prince title from the deceased Erik, and according to Renard, Victor is not to be trusted. The writers do a good job of clearing up some things, and establishing that Victor perhaps is not to be trifled with. A lot of the time, the political drama that Renard is involved in does not make much sense because there is always this feeling that we are missing part of the information. What are your thoughts on the Renard political drama?
Now onto the grimm stuff. In the last episode, Nick struggles with having to kill someone instead of arresting them. Renard’s words from a couple episodes ago seem to have stuck with Nick. It is great to see Nick hesitating now, especially after accidentally killing someone when he was all zombie-fied. The writers have been dealing with the Nick zombie fallout slowly. It would be great to see an episode exploring more of what Nick is going through, but for now, brief moments will have to do. However, there needs to be an episode dealing with Nick’s hesitation. He froze when Hank and Monroe told him to kill Krampus, and hopefully the writers will have someone bring it up to Nick or a group meeting discussing it when Nick isn’t present. Should Nick have killed Krampus?
Here are quick thoughts on elsewhere in the episode. Could Rosalee and Monroe be more adorable? After learning that Rosalee had a bad Christmas experience, Monroe takes down his winter wonderland. For Monroe, Rosalee puts it all back up. They are just adorable, and it is nice to learn a little bit more about Rosalee. We just need to take a moment to appreciate Wu. He always brightens my day. His fear of alligators in sewers is adorable. It is great that the writers have continued to include him a bit more. Do you love Wu as much as I do?
