He’s got questions that need answering.

This new season of GRIMM has again left us with more questions than answers. Mainly, this faulty memory ordeal with Juliette (Bitsie Tulloch). For all we know, that hole we seen in “Natural Born Wesen” was all in Juliette’s head. As part of a currently ongoing GetGlue community forum, we have debated whether or not Nick (David Giuntoli) should dump Juliette and find someone else–to maybe wishing that Juliette’s character head would explode. Some of the comments were harsh, but I understand what fans of the show are getting at. Allow me a moment to say: I told you so. Last season I went a little overboard on Juliette’s character lack of importance on the show. When the romance thing between her and Renard (Roiz) began to heat up I admit I was pretty excited; however, this story subplot has lingered on way too long. Before we can see this annoyance resolved–here we are alluded to another subplot: Adalind’s pregnancy. How about this? Let’s finish what we started in the first season before mucking up any chances for resolve in the new season.

Mr. Sandman (Season 2 Episode 15) Synopsis: When a mysterious case of sudden blindness causes a woman’s death, Nick (Giuntoli) and Hank (Hornsby) come across a disturbing Wesen that feeds off its victim’s tears. Meanwhile, Adalind (Coffee) contemplates the significance of her new situation while Juliette (Tulloch) continues to work with Rosalee (Turner) in an effort to fix her memory. Silas Weir Mitchell, Sasha Roiz and Reggie Lee also star.

Finally Nick, Hank and Monroe know exactly what Renard is, they still need to find out his origin story. Tonight episode about a Wesen “sandman” proves to be very interesting. Traditionally, we all maybe know about those childhood tales about a sandman coming to visit nightly to sprinkle magic sand in our eyes, which supposedly allows us to dream. That rheum (the crust that gathers in the corners of the eyes) is evidence of his visit. Of course, we can count on a gory twist to this tale. Aside from the aforementioned miscellanies–call me a hypocrite–but I always look forward to each and every episode.

Damn it, Grimm, I can’t quit you.

GRIMM is back with Mr. Sandman on NBC 9/8 p.m.
