I am not sure about it. Some stuff was great and unexpected (and honestly, did we ever see a wedding that went well on TV? :D ). But the ending twist was very much expected and it made me, for some reason, dislike Juliette even more.
But I can´t help but like Truble. I like how she is not an instantly likeable character but she grew on me. She turned to be a loyal friend. But I can´t help it, I think the cast is already too big to handle everybody so someone should just leave (cough, Juliette, cough).
But I still love the show, and I hope the story line around Nick won´t take more than one or two episodes in Season 4.

well that was my least favorite episode of the show. Honestly the only things I liked was Teresa and the wedding stuff, the little of it we got. It was way to predictable and the characters (particularly Renard) were written way to dumb not to figure out what was going on.

I also hope that Nick's powers return quickly next season. And that they get rit of Adalind, I'm so sick of her character.

Dumb! Dumb! Dumb! Dumb! Predictable! And Dumb! :daniel09: :sholva: :daniel09:


There was so much that was good about this episode and so much that was terrible. I still thought it would be okay if they didn't do what they predictably did. I am honestly disgusted by how pathetic that ending is. If I choose to watch season 4 I am going to be stuck with more Juliet, whom I don't like, because when they do figure out how he can get his powers back there will be the big debate about their relationship. :weiranime22:

I can not stand how superhero stories feel they have to fall back on the "What would happen if he lost his powers?" crutch. I am sure they'll drag this out as long as they can with Trubel around. Of course after what happened in Nick's house Trubel can't be around anymore. She left her weapon. She left her fingerprints. Her fingerprints are on file. She is burned.

And instead of getting rid of Adalind or Juliet or both we'll likely get more. There will have to be Adalind's continued story of when she learns they don't have her baby. And how long can they drag that out before she finds out?!

And I am really not happy they killed off C. Thomas Howell. I thought they were setting him up nicely as a Portland Foil. It was a good scene though.

Anyway, if I ever needed more of a reason than Juliet and Adalind to stop watching this show they just gave it to me. I mean it was just so expected that this is a TV show and that was their big cliffhanger. And so predictable that they would go to the Loss of Powers Crutch as a cliffhanger. I hoped the Grimm writers were better than this. :danielanime08: :rolleyes:

Three weeks ago I would have told you Grimm is the only show that didn't get canceled that I am definitely going to be watching next season. Now I'd have to say Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. holds that distinction. At least Wu finally knows something. At least we got twenty seconds of Bud.

Oh and I almost forgot. Is Adalind now pregnant with a Grimm? How dumb is that as a method for him losing his powers considering the way he took away hers. And how would drinking the potion that made her look like Juliet stop it? That made no sense.

Well, I seem to be of the same opinion as most of you. Parts I loved and parts I hated.

I loved the scene where Rosalee's mother and Monroe's parents were franticly looking for a new wedding dress. And Trubel is slowly starting to grow on me a little. I liked how she tried so hard to help Nick. I don't know if I would want to have her around all the time, but now and then would be good. And the actual wedding itself (before everything went to heck) was very sweet.

Just how much more stupid can the writer's make Juliette? I'm really surprised she managed not to make a scene at the wedding. She's been an annoyance since day one -- and she's only getting worse. I wouldn't miss her if we never saw her again.

OK here's my theory for next season we are going to find out that it's too late for Nick to simply drink the green liquid to get his power back. But we will find out its possible to have another Grimm give there's away. So truble will give him her ability.

OOOOOOOOOO ! ! ! ! ! That is interesting. I don't think it will ever happen because Trubel's 'troubled' :rolleyes: past, but it is still a very interesting theory. I just don't think Trubel has gone through this life of fighting "The Monsters" and now she'll be willing to give the power to see "The Monsters" up. She is already paranoid and I doubt she would want to give up seeing Wessen who might be threatening her.

It is just a huge problem that they decided to go down this path with Nick. It almost seems too obvious that they want to keep the door open in case Giuntoli wants too much money to return. And it was a big deal when he took Adalind's powers away, which should have ended her time on the show. Now having her come back and take away is ability just seems silly. For me it really detracts from the show that they are trying to use this as a plot device. You give people abilities and then you make it so those powers can be taken away and regained just because you can't come up with better material or because someone might have contract issues.

I am still confused on what actually took Nicks Powers away. To Recap, the Royals told her that Nicks blood in her Veins makes him vulnerable, then we have the scene with her hand bleeding, then she gets Juliets hair and turns into her to have Sex with Nick and take his Powers away. Then Renard wants to use the potion that transformed her to safe Nick. So what the Hell was it? The Blood, the Potion, having Sex with someone with your own or maybe Grimm Blood? I dont get it. As far as I can Imagine she mixed her/his Blood into the Potion which makes her transformation half Grimm? Again, wth?

And that is another reason the finale is terrible. The way they showed it the potion that made her look like Juliet has nothing to do with him losing his powers. Obviously he lost his powers because he had sex with a Hexenbeast, that is why she needed the potion to look like Juliet. So him drinking the potion shouldn't have done anything. The whole thing is just awful. Even if they explained it better it would still be an awful concept. It is bad enough that we are supposed to believe his powers can be taken away, but we also have to accept that part of the formula for doing so has to do with looking like someone else. Whaaaaa?!?!?!?!

I wasn't crazy about the finale either. I'm not excited about Nick being degrimmed, and I hope that doesn't last long. I'm also not thrilled that they felt like they needed to throw that kind of a wrench into the Nick/Juliette relationship (which I actually like). And I just can't figure out how I feel about Trubel. All in all, a kind of let down of a finale to what has overall IMO been kind of a disappointing season. Hopefully next season will be stronger.

This show has lost a bit of steam sadly to say. I'm fed up with Adalind coming back and yet again picking on Juliette! Taking Nick's powers away in the way they did, *shakes head*.

Trubel has turned out to be the new 'Nick' it seems, luckily I don't mind her as a character. Is it just me or haven't we really seen much of Nick in action as a Grimm recently? All the time is taken up with the 'Adalind mess'. I hope the return of Nick's powers, which is inevitable, happens in a more spectacular interesting way than it did with him losing them.

One thing I'm glad of in this finale is that Munroe and Rosalee got past the; "I now pronounce you man and wife" bit before all hell broke loose!

That would be the only thing I was glad that happened!

Okie dokie.. So, my turn to rant and such.. It will be under spoilers just because I'm neurotic and like things condensed.

Okay, first let me say that I haven't actually watched the ep. I checked into it, fully intending to watch it and then I read the polls and comments and such on the app (it's called Get Glue) and I was so annoyed that I vowed never to watch it.. (I'll admit that I'm caving a bit but I'm still annoyed at it)

So.. SO not happy about how they ended it. It was..dare I say...disgustingly predictable and disappointing on a level that I have yet to have with this show. Like others, I guessed that Nick would be de-Grimmed long ago because of the introduction of Trubel (whom I'm still not a fan of). My main hope is that they don't keep the story arc long because I'm not sure I could keep watching if Trubel is the main Grimm and Nick is now just a cop who happens to know about the Grimm/Wesen world but can no longer do much about it besides be a sidekick. I just cannot swallow that for too long.

I'm not exactly sure what the deal with Adalind and Juliette was.. I read/guessed that Adalind slept with Nick in Juliette's form and that Juliette didn't react well to it but beyond that I'm not precisely sure what's going on. I like Juliette now that she knows about everything and has been as supportive as she has been. Adalind, however, I'm done with. I used to like her but over time I've just kind of gotten past annoyed with her. I still like her better than Trubel but since I essentially loathe Trubel that's not saying much.

I'm glad that Monroe and Rosalee are finally married and that Rosalee changed her dress into a very beautiful one - she looked gorgeous! Congrats to the both of them!

Okay... *sighs* That's the amount of my rant so far.... IF (and that's a big 'if') I do watch it, there's a chance that more will be coming..

I would just watch it and get it over with. When you are done you might be like me and have one less thing to watch in the fall. :rolleyes:

I'm hesitant... Honestly, I don't want to not want to watch it and so I'm not eager to watch something that might make me not want to watch it ever again.

I would skip it and maybe check out next season. That way you don't lose an hour. Though I'm not sure if I'm going to do that.

I guess I'm fed up with Adalind because I felt that things would have been more interesting if she became Grimm's 'Maybourne', not knowing how trustworthy she is but working towards redeeming herself; especially if she still had her child this would have made more sense since she would see allying with Nick and Co was her best bet at protecting her child. An interesting dynamic would have been added to Nick's 'Scooby Gang' and just having the 'Royals' as the big bad since she and everyone else have been targeted by them would be enough. I really don't care to know what happens when Adalind finds out that Nick and Co spirited her baby away.

Trubel I think will be useful for a while, I'm guessing she will sacrifice herself to stop Adalind and will be the key to Nick getting his powers back. The sooner they do this the better; if this state of affairs with Nick being 'Grimmless' coninues for too long into the next season then that would make me stop watching!

I can take a certain amount of twisted revenge, violent intent and things going south as long as it is tempered by solid underlying 'feel good' elements; such as good character interactions which this show has built up wonderfully over the last two and a half seasons. Destroying Nick's and Juliette's relationship completely would be a bad move for example; it was good watching how they dealt with the challenges Nick's heritage presents. Without this solid touchstone there is nothing for evil to threaten and it just becomes all about the evil, monotonous to say the least! :(

I agree with this. I'm okay if Trubel sacrifices herself or her life as a Grimm so that Nick can go back to being one. But what I do hope is that the writers don't take to long in doing this..

I can see them safely pushing the Grimless thing to the mid-season finale and then having Nick go back to normal one way or another.

I hoped the Grimm writers were better than this. :danielanime08: :rolleyes:


The >OLD< writers were the better ones, the ones they hired for season 3 are most dumbasses feeling like rockstars, and even the few still sticking in the franchise from day 1 (which are Dan, Nick and Alan) are somehow ... don't know. Nick is doing the webisodes and at least there wasn't any lack in quality if you ask me (okay, this weird wedding-vid from SDCC was completely off if you ask me but was written by Brenna not by Nick). But the rest of the writers ... *shakes head in disbelief* ... I know why I say I feel like in an endless deja vu reminding me on the situation back after the cancellation of Atlantis when the TPTB started to attack fans.

About the episode. I have to say I still search the cliffhanger. It was clear that they would de-grimm Nick the moment Grimm's very own Mary Sue aka Trubel hit Portland, and Sasha is too much of a fan-magnet to really kill off his character. And at least from the debacle with killing Eric to bring in Kouf's/Greenwalt's buddy as Viktor they've learned that fans can have an impact of the show. At least something ...
