Carissa, you nailed it with Tom Cavanaugh - good grief, the man is amazing. He dances around the mystery and ambiguity of his character with such fascinating ease. Harrison Wells, to me, is easily the best thing about this show.
Cisco's line was my favourite line in the whole show - I was laughing so hard I had to pause the episode. I wondered if it was ad-libbed because Joe's reaction was so funny.
It's definitely the best episode of Grimm. This is the first time I didn't miss Trubel. Now all I want is to see Juliette kick Adalind's butt hexen-style.
Best. Episode. Ever. Holy crap did Juliette ever take a lesson in badass!!! Who was she even?! Quite frankly, everyone was badass in this episode, and I was at the edge of my seat the entire time. On another note, my brother made this awesome connection: the guy playing the Wesenrein blutbad leader Charlie Riken (Brandon Quinn) was also the main character Tommy on "Big Wolf On Campus". Where he played a werewolf.
I agree with you and Carissa. I was actually disappointed to see how quickly we found out how Oliver survived. While we shouldn't have had to wait 2 years (yeah, Sherlock), a longer absence - and a bit more mystery surrounding his survival - would have been more meaningful and more intriguing.
They're also not metahumans. They're just psychopaths with fancy guns.
I'm just gonna swing by and mention that Wentworth Miller and Dominic Purcell broke out of a prison truck. Because of "the plan." #PrisonBreakReunion
Great review! I loved this episode. I went cold when Monroe saw the guy burned at the stake. Somehow it made the danger he was in so much more real. Glad to see the return of zombie Nick - I hope they explore that a bit more. Also, I'm pretty sure Renard tells Wu, "You don't wanna go there."
I'm seriously hoping for a Hexenbiest showdown between Juliette and Adalind.
I thought one of the coolest things about the episode was the fact that they "redid" the office in exactly the same way as it was before, with one significant change (the photocopier that makes toast). It was nicely symbolic of the show itself, which has gone back to what it was before, but now with a baby. Malory's and Sterling's reactions are sort of how the fans react - the ones who didn't want to go back to the old ways would be Malory, and the ones who are excited about the old ways are like Sterling ("I'm not a fan of change.") Also, it seems they're continuing with the mystery of whether this is the real Krieger. Would the real Krieger have forgotten Pam's name? Curiouser and curiouser...
