    Yes, Renard's expression was priceless!!

    I wonder how (and when) Monroe and Rosalee are going to tell their parents about them.

    And, what's up with Adalind's baby? What is it going to turn into.

    Good episode, but the dinner party scene was too weird. And I don't like Juliette, so them making her all over enthused to be helping out seems ridiculous. That and her being helpful at all also seems ridiculous. LOL

    Did anyone notice that Monroe's mother's voice sounded like Dee Wallace? She didn't have a credit, but it really sounded like her and I hope it is her. It is a very funny twist to have her star as Munroe's mother. In case you don't know why it is funny it is because she is the star of The Howling (1981). It's a werewolf movie.

    I watched it a little distracted so I will have to rewatch. I thought it was good. I am glad they cover the whole story-arc and still are able to deal with a case of the week. I think I saw way too many movies and TV shows because I saw it coming from the moment they introduced the old lady.
    I am not sure if let her running around is a good idea but I am sure they wonīt mention it again I would love to see Nick to write about it, since he couldnīt find it anywhere.

    I guess Monroeīs mum is thrilled with him having a girlfriend....until she finds out she is not a Blutbad The dinner was weird but funny. Talking about killing and looking at bloody photos over the food sums up their relationship, I think

    Not sure about Juliette - she said something useful, I can give her that. Nickīs explanation why he never said to her about his mother was good and made sense but does Hank know? I donīt think he told him.

    But boy, couldnīt they get the real German speaker for the role of a doctor? I am not German but even I thought the German sounded...awkward. But I am not an expert - maybe Austrian German sounds different? I know I had big trouble to understand in Vieanna when I heard two people talking...also, I think it is funny how everybody around Nick speaks at least one foreign language and he is still stuck with English Didnīt he have any foreign language at school?

    I came across an article earlier today that says she has indeed been cast as his mother, a long with Chris Mulkey as Monroe's father.

    I also was distracted while what this, though it was my fault for starting the episode while getting ready for a party later that night.

    The episode was okay, I really liked the dinner scene and totally called the scene about his mother. I'm glad that they had her ask Nick right away about it and not hold it from him.

    The scene with Monroe and Roselee was good too. I'm surprised that Rosalee hasn't told her family about Monroe, it seems like that would have come up when she was there for a few weeks. She wouldn't have to say that he is a blubud if that is the problem. I definitely looking forward to meeting Monroe's parents.

    The case was okay, I didn't expect it to turn out to be the old woman, though it made sense. So they just let her go at the end because they couldn't figure out how to make her the suspect.

    Austrian German sounds different but definitely not like the doctor. German term on Austrian German is mostly that it's "charming", it's a bit like a singsong, but they also are able to talk High German (which IS the actual German. Low German is actually the past one not vice versa as Monroe told during season 1). There's also a translation mistake during the scene, as NO woman would say in German "ich trage Zwillinge", that's term in English. German would be correct "ich bekomme Zwillinge" (I will get twins). Carrying unborn is a usual term here for animals, and I doubt that Adalind sees herself as an animal, no matter how she feels about the child.

    An example for how Austrian German and high German is sounding is (not the newest) an interview with one of my personal favourite artists (unfortunately he died years ago ) Falco. Falco was Austrian, Heike Makatsch is, if I'm not wrong, from Berlin but speaking high German. Falco did so too but he still had this little Austrian accent : Heikes Hausbesuch.

    Hi all, may I chime in here?

    Yes, the doctor's German was really bad. That was not Austrian German or even Viennese at all. She had a very strong American accent. It really hurt my ears.

    On the differences between German German and Austrian German: my friend, who is Russian, told me once that for her Austrian German sounds softer. I personally like to compare them with British and American English, where the British dialect has also a harder pronunciation than American English... for me.

    Hereīs another example of Viennese diaect ( a bit exaggerated): Mundl - ein echter Wiener...

    The two people who passed by when Adalind left the building werenīt German native speakers either....

    I had to grin at the doctor's name though, Hawelka. Could that be a tribute on one of the most famous cafés in Vienna? The Hawelka? (the emphasis is on the first sylable, not the second, btw )

    And where they had the coat of arms on the silver Audi's licence plates right, why was there a D in the front, instead of W (for "Wien").

    But all in all I enjoyed this episode, even if Renard didnīt have so much screentime...

    @Hyndara: Falco rocks!

    Thanks for clearing it up I cringed when she said "maken" instead of "machen" but then I thought it was part of the Austrian accent. I donīt really understand or speak that well (I used to but not anymore) and I really need to focus and listen carefully. I think Adelind as non-German speaker can be forgiven. You should hear my German But really, if I can tell it was terrible with my limited German, then they should really work on it. I canīt believe they werenīt able to find an actress who would speal fluently German. Or anybody, actually, the part didnīt really require that much acting
    I am just scared when (and I think it is just a matter of time) they will try Czech. It is not even a germanic language
    If she didnīt have the "w" in her name, I would have thought she had some Czech roots (which is not impossible due to our common, hundreds years long history )

    As for Falco, we know him here very well. I always liked the mix of English and German he used Also, died too young

    Anyway, it is a little OT.
    I like Adelind and for once, I thought her storyline was interesting. I am curious what it is with the baby and I suspect the old witch that she will kill Adelind. Or that the birth will kill Adelind. She may need Nickīs or Renardīs help very soon.

    In some north German parts they pronunce the ch-sound like k, in Hamburg for example, but not here in the far south.

    Actually, I found Adalind's German pronunciation was much better than the doctor's.

    Czech names are very common in Vienna. And I suppose a lot of people have Czech, Slovakian and Hungarian roots. Vienna (and Austria in general) was always a melting pool for all kind of people. The real Hawelkas had actually Bohemian and Moravian roots.

    As for Falco, we know him here very well. I always liked the mix of English and German he used Also, died too young
    Too true.

    Anyway, it is a little OT.

    I wonder if Renard will arrange a paternity test. It must have dawned on him that the baby could be his.

    Yeah it was really obvious when they showed her in the store that she was going to be important. What clinched it was when they interviewed her and she said she "thought things would be different here.", meaning she was new to the area. That little added bit of exposition was a big sign that said she would definitely be involved with what would happen in the episode.

    Sweet! I knew that was her voice. Thanks for finding the proof.
