    I have not watched this episode yet (or the last one before the hiatus) but this show is rapidly approaching "wait until the season is over to watch it" status. And if they end the season on a cliffhanger, I may wait longer. I'm patient, I waited 2 years to catch up on "The Dead Zone" .

    I'm glad things are getting out in the open. The "sex" scene with Cappy and Juliette made me think this was not an episode that would really work for anyone just tuning in to give it a shot. Kind of bizzaro.

    Yes, the first episode back after a long hiatus continuing with the dangling storylines and not really resolving them was kind of frustrating. I'm glad to have the show back, but wrap it up and get on to something more interesting than Adalind (whose smug, smirky demeanor is such a turn-off).

    I've always thought the Cap is a prince in exile, so it's not surprising that he has an agenda separate from that of the other royals. And he did say that if his brother (presumably the heir apparent?) gets the key, he (Cap) is dead.

    I really liked this ep. The characters were spot on and behaved in a real beleivable way instead of like TV characters doing what the writer needs them to do to stall a reveal or plot twist.

    My DVR cut off a bit at the end. When it ended, Nick was lying on the floor, very red in the face, with everyone looking at him. Was there anything more after that? I also wish they'd get rid of the Adelind character.

    One small scene after that:
    Adalind looks at a positive pregnancy test and smirks.

    Hmmm. I'm going to have to reprogram my DVR. The end of tonight's episode got cut off on my DVR, too.

    Something definitely weird going on with Adalind. Maybe she regains her "powers" or something else going on with her pregnancy, but it's a great show, looking forward to whatever is next.

    This week's end was not to be missed. I like seeing Nick going badass, and I'm kind of hoping he becomes a merciless-if-you-mean-harm kind of Grimm that the vessen have always feared he was. To that end, I was kind of hoping he'd cockily taunt the guy in the school. "You can run, but now you're dealing with a Grimm."

    Except for the way it ended, the scene with the captain was incredibly dull. I hope this Vienna royals thing either gets wrapped up or made more interesting soon.

    I liked being a little ahead of the show, understanding that the common denominator was a non de plume from the start. Rage is absolutely not a fantasy book, however. Also, the scrambled letters were very obviously Rumpelstiltskin. I don't know why that never came up.

    I'd guess because that while the show's premise is based on Grimm's fairy tales, to actually use the unusual name of one (was it one, anyway?) would be a bit too much? But using the same letters, but not the name, is a nice nod to the roots of this show?

    Maybe also because Rumpel is a major part of Once Upon a Time. :) I think it was a Grimm's story, because that quote at the start of the show does come from a version of the story.

    Perhaps all of the "Fuchsteufelswild" take their names from the same group of letters. Rumpelstiltskin was just a distant relative. As time goes on it could be tricky to be original (or pronounceable).

    I am glad it's not in the death slot, but moving shows can hurt ratings. Here's hoping Grimm gets more viewers!

    It will also need to improve in the ratings to achieve renewal on Tuesdays. Shows on Fridays get some leniency; other nights not so much.

    With all the "breaking News" tonight, I wonder if/when we will be able to see this weeks episode. I hope they just shift everything one week.

    The episode tonight was preempted on the East Coast. I'm guessing the West Coast will get to see it, and I'll have to catch it On Demand.

    Revolution was shifted by a week. It will be ending in June.I imagine all the networks will be doing some fancy scrambling over the next few weeks
