“I have been bent and broken, but, I hope, into a better shape.”
“Eve of Destruction” is the January 29 episode of “Grimm.” Reminder: this article has spoilers, so read at your own risk. Be sure to check out the slideshow for more quotes from tonight’s episode. “Grimm” airs Friday nights at 8 p.m. CT on NBC.
Our first real meeting with Eve is handled really well. We are immediately able to tell that she’s not Juliette, and we got some clues about how Eve came to be, and how she is doing. For instance she’s called Eve because she’s about to become something new. We saw a person in transition, and that begs the question of what will she be whenever she’s done transitioning.
Eve’s not a very outgoing person, is she? She’s a little awkward in conversations, and she doesn’t say all that much. Her introduction makes you wonder how she is doing, mentally. It would be understandable if she weren’t doing well because she came back from the dead and all, which can be traumatizing.
There’s still a lot we don’t know about Eve, like how she’s alive, but this was a good first taste. The flashback was fantastic because it proved that Juliette is still in there somewhere, and that Trubel did kill her. What do you think Meisner and the group did to turn Juliette into Eve?
One thing that was amazing was that meeting Eve wasn’t rushed. Everyone was allowed to take the time to react to the fact that Juliette was probably alive. Also, Nick wasn’t the only one freaking out and theorizing. We got to see Monroe tell Rosalee and walk through her reactions.“Grimm” really knows when to take its time.
Black Claw is not messing around. They took out the freaking Wesen Council! This is a huge move, and it’s unclear what the repercussions will be. Do you think Black Claw wants to become the new council, or was the council killed so there wouldn’t be a governing body for Wesen?
The Wesen Council is something that we are sort of familiar with. They’re always around making rules and being ominous in their importance, but one thing that has always been clear is that the Wesen Council is a huge deal in the Wesen world. What do you think life without the Wesen Council will be like?
There was one thing in the hour that didn’t go over well, and you probably know what it is – Nick and Adalind kissing. Even though they’ve proven to be kind of cute together, it was way too soon for kissing. Did anyone else feel uncomfortable during it? Let’s just dial back the romance.
