Warning: This article contains spoilers for Grimm season four, episode 21.
Recent episodes of Grimm have seen characters change in ways Grimm fans couldn’t possibly have predicted, while other characters have reacted with as much shock and confusion as the viewers. Juliette (Bitsie Tulloch) has been turned into an especially vindictive hexenbiest, while Adalind (Claire Coffee), who is incidentally carrying the grimm’s child, has had her inner wesen subdued.
Essentially, this Grimm storyline has sent Juliette and Adalind into a role reversal that might have been comical in other circumstances.
In addition to this mix-up sending many of the other Grimm characters into chaos, Nick (David Giuntoli) included, it has had the added effect of bringing former Grimm characters back into the fold. In the most recent episode of Grimm, Juliette was seen conspiring with the royal family to bring Nick’s mother back to Portland in the hopes that she will lead them to Adalind’s first child.
Meanwhile, Monroe (Silas Weir Mitchell) and Rosalee (Bree Turner) made the decision to call in the only other grimm they know: Trubel (Jacqueline Toboni).
The teaser airing at the end of last week’s Grimm revealed this much, as well as more that seems to be leading to a traumatic season finale.
As far as Juliette is concerned, it seems that she may have gone so far that some Grimm fans are questioning whether she can ever come back from it, even if Monroe and Rosalee do manage to heal her of the hexenbiest. Making matters worse, she seems to have given up any desire to find a cure at all and she has resisted Nick’s every attempt to reach her, proving that, while the grimm may be able to love the hexenbiest, the opposite may not be possible.
Meanwhile, Nick and Hank (Russell Hornsby) grow closer to discovering the identity of the Portland’s newest serial killer. Come on! We all know it’s Captain Sean Renard (Sasha Roiz), don’t we? The one thing that has been revealed for sure is that, whoever the killer may be, Wu (Reggie Lee) will find himself in harm’s way, before the grimm can mete out justice.
When Grimm airs this Friday on NBC, it may come down to a race against time to determine who will be victorious, and with three grimms in town, surely Portland can survive a serial killer, a royal family, and a raging hexenbiest.
