Grimm: The Three Bad Wolves
"The huff and puff days are over."
The Three Little Pigs, then. Naturally, the main pig is a police officer. What scriptwriter could resist that? We have wolves, pigs, a wooden house that gets set on fire. This episode's main gimmick, though, is a reversal of roles; a big bad pig is after the three Bludbaden.
This is an interesting perspective on the character of
Monroe. Quirky though he
is, he's a bachelor of very regular habits and rather highbrow. Other Bludbaden
seem to be rather more bohemian and rock 'n' roll, unless I'm reading too much
into things. I wonder if this is going to be developed? He also gets a bit of
semi-metaphorical wild, kinky sex which, it's made clear, is very much the sort
of thing he used to do in his bad old days but definitely doesn't do any more.
At this point I really, really want to see an episode which digs deep into his
Arc-wise, aside from
there isn't a lot to grab hold of this week. Strong episode, though.
