Grimm Review: One of Two Choices
It’s rather surprising that Grimm, a show that plays with Halloween on a weekly basis, could not pull off a very compelling Halloween episode.
Sure, "La Llorona" as a person with the screaming, bleeding eyes, creepy factor identity as a ghost is totally working for her on Halloween, but her story did not offer anything very compelling. Her only real purpose, it seems, was to get Juliette involved with the family so the Grandma could tell her she has a choice to make.
Which is a great launching pad as Juliette heads off on the next part of her journey this season; however, Juliette’s “choice” isn’t really hers to make. Since the beginning of the season, Juliette’s choices are really just symptoms of her current ailment.
With Juliette’s memories of Nick still completely gone, it’s hard to see how any choice Juliette ends up making will have any honesty whatsoever because those decisions will be made under false pretenses.
Sure, Juliette can try her best to make the right choices, and I believe she knows what the “right” choice is, but, on the other hand, I also have a feeling that she might want to see what the “other” choice might bring about. Especially when this obsession Renard has with her, at times, looks like a two way street.
Aside from Juliette, “La Llorona” didn’t have much to it, nor it did it push anything else along that was mildly interesting aside from Monroe. Even then, Monroe seems to be lost in the wild while Rosalee is off helping her family.
To be frank, aside from the one scene with Juliette tonight's episode ends up being one of the most boring episodes of Grimm I have ever watched, and that disappoints me the most.
- Ever since Hank got in on the action the Grimm-pedias have English descriptions.
- How many children cases in a row are we going to get?
- Juliette lived in Spain, which borders France, could she have had a royal encounter?
- At least Monroe got to scare off some no good kids!
