Nick is delighted when Juliette, who still can't remember him, invites over for a home cooked dinner to get acquainted all over. But he's called away urgently by Monroe, who has a feral visitor: a ruthless killer, yet also a friend of his, who only pretended to take a contract for Monroe's death to warn him after 'accidentally' killing the initial hit man. Nick, who wants her for at least two earlier murders, grudgingly cooperates, going so far as to allow her to pretend to be his partner. To get to the royal presumed to have hired the killer, Monroe must fake his death with a potentially lethal potion, instructed over the phone by Rosalee, who visits a very ill relative, after a dream date with Monroe. The royal is in awkward league with Renard. Written by KGF Vissers

Hunting Monroe
17 January 2017 | by tenshi_ippikiookamiSee all my reviews

Angelina is back, and she gets a curious job offer: kill Monroe. Instead of just going and offing him off, she decides to go and warn him. Monroe, rightly scared, calls Nick.

Who wants to kill Monroe? And why?

"Over My Dead Body" is another highly entertaining episode in the beginning of this second season of "Grimm". The character development and their relationships keep being top-notch and grabbing the viewer's attention. Silas Weir Mitchell does an amazing job as Monroe, and the relationship of the character with everyone involved in the episode is great. The pace is also really good, and it has a good amount of action, humor and mystery. Sadly, there seems to be little effort put into the confrontations between Nick and his team and the 'supernatural beings', the show falling into the fill-the-enemy-with-lead instead of more creative showdowns. More imagination in those moments would greatly improve the show.
