BWW Spoiler Alert!: 5 Major Takeaways from this Week's GRIMM
Welcome to BWW Spoiler Alert! In this new column, I am going to share five questions and takeaways from the most buzzworthy television episodes of the week (i.e. whatever shows I watch). By definition, these columns will contain Spoilers if you have yet to see the episode in question, so don't say that I didn't warn you!
On Friday night, NBC aired the third to last GRIMM of the season. In "My Fair Wesen" (a nice allusion to the PYGMALION reference Captain Renard makes about the case of the week) we get to know a little bit more about Truble, the new Grimm in town.
SPOILER ALERT! I will be discussing things that actually happen on this episode, so if you haven't gotten around to watching it yet, click on another one of my interesting articles instead; like this, this, or this.
1) I get that this is a show set in a fairy-tale world (all be it a dark one), but isn't the name "Truble" (full name Teresa Rubela) a little too on the nose for the haunted foster kid? Maybe the writers could have gone with Danielle Semegd or Winona Field. I don't know why in my nearly three years of watching this should would lead me expect subtlety from the Grimm writers, but a Kehrseite-Schlich-Kennen can dream, right?
2) Was anyone else as uncomfortable as I was when Juliette had to explain to Truble that she and Nick weren't married? With all of the Rosalee and Monroe wedding planning this season, I have to imagine that the perpetually un-engaged Juliette has to be wondering if/when Nick is gonna suck it up and pop the question. If it wasn't so close to Adalind, I might start referring to Juliette as Adelaide. With all that they have been through, is there any chance she decides that she can't wait any longer?
