We got major plot progression this week, guys! I’m having a hard time even figuring out what the best moment was because the whole episode was amazing and action-packed. I appreciate episodes like this so much more than watching people get run over and seeing their boneless, deflated meat suits lying around (see: last week’s episode).
Yet another episode with a killer case and major plot progression. Keep it up, Grimm!
This week’s episode of Grimm centers on a Japanese wesen tradition of honor and justice that, per the usual, turns deadly. We also get a whole lot of plot progression (finally) for all of our characters. The first half of this season was so incredible because it focused on one overarching story line. Not that the rest of the season hasn’t been good with all of its typical case episodes, but it feels like it’s time to get back to the major issues at hand here.
This week’s episode of Grimm plays on the dangers of religious fanaticism in a brilliant way. And bonus: We’re gifted with stellar guest star William Mapother (Ethan from Lost) playing the role of a traveling evangelical preacher, Dwight Eleazar, who utilizes his wesen face to gain followers and dole out peace.
Grimm is getting another go-round.
NBC announced Tuesday that the supernatural drama has been renewed for a sixth season.
“We absolutely love what our producers and cast have accomplished over the past five seasons,” NBC Entertainment president Jennifer Salke said in a statement. “They have created a whole new world of creatures and have a truly devoted fan base. We can’t wait to see what comes next.”
The case-of-the-week offers a lesson in the dangers of vanity and greed — which, in this instance, will literally turn you into a monster. When a photographer Malcolm Caulfield (Jonathan Patrick Moore) approaches a woman named Summer who looks like Katy Perry’s twin, red flags start flying all over the place. He tells her he “likes her look” and offers to do some headshots for her.
This week’s case gives us a look into the legend of the lycanthrope. In true Grimm fashion, they put their own spin on the history of the werewolf.
This week’s case involves wesen-made luchador masks that bestow their wesen powers onto the fighters who wear them. So basically just a normal day in Portland.
Before we dive in, let’s congratulate Grimm on its 100th episode! The show has thrived in the Friday night slot since the beginning, and now, in an impressive fifth season, the show is better than ever. Hats off to the actors, producers, writers, and all of the crew for an admirable TV milestone.
Things are heating up on NBC’s Grimm. With the impending danger of Black Claw worldwide, Manwar the terrorist wesen on the loose in Portland, and Nick and Monroe away in Germany on a treasure hunt, the 100th special episode is sure to be an eventful one.
EW chatted with Russell Hornsby, who plays Hank Griffin, to get all the scoop on Black Claw, Adalind and Nick’s complicated relationship, and some of his favorite moments from the show over the past five seasons.
