Did You Know?


One of the ingredients that Rosalee lists is "Dunkelkatzenpisse," which literally means "dark cat's piss" - this means it uses the piss of a dark cat, or a "Dunkelkatze", which could be some type of Wesen. It can not mean that the piss itself is dark, as that would be "dunkle Katzenpisse". The instrument used to treat the ear infection, the "assourdissant," is French for "deafening." See more »

The writing is starting to suffer.
1 August 2017 | by (Butt Town) – See all my reviews

If you're going to believe that monsters exist, you sometimes have buy some other things that don't make sense. You shouldn't question why the police can just kick in everyone's door without a warrant. You can't really question how multiple people are murdered in every episode and the police are never investigated. Plots hole? You just have to accept them. But this episode is where Grimm jumps the shark. How you ask? Well in two ways actually. Rosalee gives Monroe instructions on how to make and administer a potion. She is very specific when she tells him the hat type thing he needs to administer it is her only one and he needs to be extremely careful with it. So Monroe just gives it to the guy and lets him leave with it. Weak. Then when there's three minutes left and the main story line can't possibly explain how this little girl is not going to kill a lot more people, Monroe magically knows a female wesen guard at juvenile hall, sends her to talk to Nick and she has the power to make sure the girl will be housed on her block. To top it off, she says the girl will stop being violent soon. It's just sloppy writing. At this point the shows don't even seem to be based on fairy tales anymore. I have lowered my over all rating of this show to a 6 and will probably be back to lower it more.
