This week’s episode of Grimm, which was named “Love Sick” was an amazing episode, it really helped in the building to a very powerful season finale. In fact, it was very interesting and exciting, never have we saw this level of excitement since the very famous episode “Last Grimm Standing”. The reason behind this is that there have been a lot of key elements that were always out of the spotlight and out of the circle of interest of the show, but on this episode they got integrated with the current storylines. These elements include the mystery of the key and Adalind. Finally these pieces of the puzzle finally got pushed into the picture.
Aunt Marie handed the key to Nick, making him promise to protect that key even if it means sacrificing his life. The covering of the key had a map, as for the destination of this map or what it leads to, it is still unknown. They key is basically a key to the door that will unlock a lot about Nick’s history, what strengthen this fact, is that Grimm has been stepping in a lot of history that we have no idea about and never saw, so this key must be the key, no pun intended. It also holds all the secrets of how the Grimms work and why do many Wesen act the way they act. While having Renard and his royal family controlling everything and wanting to have utter and complete control on everything, they will defiantly want the key to reveal all the secrets of the Grimms. This will defiantly cause some problems to Nick. Bottom of line, the royal family of Renard would want to have control over the key so they can control the Grimms and their business, hence, eliminating their competition.
Speaking of Renard, he was the king of mystery, as he always is. The writer did a pretty good job when it comes to his character and personality. He is very devious and conniving. This led to people liking him despite being the bad guy. He is never frustrated, but on this episode, desperation seems to be finding its way into his heart as he defied his cousin and his family openly when it came to giving them the Grimm or the key. As for Hank, he is the king still, but the king of boredom. Everything with him is out of control, especially his infatuation with Adalind.
Onto another character, Adalind, she was part of the most entertaining scene of the episode, the final confrontation that she had with Nick. It was very fun and exciting to watch. Everyone predicted that she would lose and die, but much to our surprise, she only lost her powers, but not her life. While it is better, but for her, its much worse, as she would prefer death over losing her powers.
