Wu and the Grimm
31 January 2017 | by tenshi_ippikiookamiSee all my reviews

A new danger is in town. And this time it is targeting sergeant Wu's childhood friend, Dana. Will Nick and the team be able to stop this new wesen before it gets its objective? And will Wu be able to help his friend? What about Adalind and her baby? Will she survive the birth of her baby and recover her powers?

"Mommy Dearest" is another great example of what does "Grimm" on of the most entertaining shows that use the supernatural as its reason d'etre: how it relates its lore to the characters and the characters' arc. As with other shows ("Supernatural", for example) the characters and their relationships is what keeps things fresh and interesting for the viewer.

In this case, it is Wu's arc which is very nicely developed. Wu has been always there, a supporting character with some funny lines and little screen time that, in this occasion, gets the time to shine, his story relating to the wesen-of-the-week, Nick, Hank and the others trying to stop the wesen while having to keep Wu in the dark. It does for a fascinating and gripping episode, the tension rising little by little to an amazing ending. Great episode.
