Grimm: Woman in Black
I can see things that...”
“That most people can't”.
Phew. You can
tell this is a biggy from the sheer amount of stuff in the “previously on”. We have
three epically big things happening: Nick finally tells Juliette the truth, it
doesn’t go well, and she falls into a coma after being scratched by Adalind’s
cat; the fourth man who killed Nick’s parents, Akira Kimura, comes to visit
Portland and is not a very polite guest; and then there’s that mysterious woman
in black, who, happen to be Nick’s dead mother... WHAT?! Nick’s mother is Maid Marian?
with Nick telling all to an obviously unwell Juliette goes as badly as we can
possibly expect. It’s arse-clenching viewing. What makes it even worse is that
she immediately succumbs to a coma. The whole thing is left unresolved. But
this is only one element of a big, big episode, and by no means the only thing
that is keeping us in agonised suspense.
Kimura is well hard. So hard, in fact, that he comes very close to killing our
good friend Captain Reynard! We get a very strong impression that he really,
really wants those three coins. It’s becoming more and more obvious that for as
long as Nick holds them he will not be safe. Neither will his family or
ends with a fight scene which is very well shot with shaky camera, culminating
in that cliffhanger. I for one am
glad that I don’t have to wait too long to see the resolution!
