GRIMM is back after an explosive season premiere! We now know that Capt. Renard (Roiz) and Nick (Giuntoli) are on the same team and will do whatever it is they can and stop Adalind (Coffee) from obtaining the mysterious key on behalf of the “families.” Just “who” the families are exactly and what they want with the key isn’t very clear as of yet. As we have seen, the body count rises with any attempt to retrieve the key. It’s about time that they both are out-of-the-bag on who’s who and what with Nick and Renard. As far as alliances go, it will take the both of them to keep a handle on things in Portland. Another season shocker–Adalind preggers? I have to take a moment to contemplate an opinion on this plot twist.
This Juliette (Tulloch) memory thing fiasco has gone on long enough. Indeed time for a cure. Luckily, Rosalee (Turner) is there to hopefully put an end to all this nonsense. I’m pretty sure that I am not the only one who wishes for this part of the romance story to end. Hopefully it will resolve in tonight’s episode:
NATURAL BORN WESEN Synopsis: The Wesen code of honor comes into question when Nick, Hank and Monroe discover a series of bank robberies with Wesen using true natures as their disguises. Meanwhile, Juliette finds herself tormented by faint, slowly returning memories that cause her to question her mental state.
Are you as excited as I am to see Grimm return to Friday’s? Yeah? Now, on with the show!

GRIMM is back! Nick must face the consequences of learning the truth about Juliette!
GRIMMis back, and Nick’s out for vengeance, and I have to admit that I’m a bit worried. Not surprising, especially when Juliette is sweet on Capt. Renard! Seems like Nick’s in for a bit of hurt. NBC’s supernatural series has been on break since November but is back with Face Off. When we last left Nick, Juliette just told him that she cared about another man, however, is it really love? Or Adalind’s magic meddling?
After Nick (David Giuntoli) learns about Juliette (Bitsie Tulloch) and Captain Renard (Sasha Roiz), he must deal with the consequences. Things get even more complicated when Nick is called to investigate his own crime. Meanwhile, the search for the key intensifies as Captain Renard finds Nick’s trailer and makes a surprising alliance. With Rosalee’s (Bree Turner) help, Monroe (Silas Weir Mitchell) informs Nick that they might be able to stop what’s going on with Renard and Juliette before it goes too far. Elsewhere, Wu (Reggie Lee) responds to a bizarre shooting at Nick and Juliette’s house. Claire Coffee also stars.
This should be a loaded episode as Nick confront’s Renard, Rosalee is back, and I am especially looking forward to Nick and Monroe be roommates. Thank Grimm it’s Friday once more!
