“A sucker is born every minute.”
“A Reptile Dysfunction” is the February 5 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.
While it was great to have Nick go inside Hadrian’s Wall, we didn’t really learn anything. The government funds the organization, but that wasn’t too shocking considering that an FBI agent was a part of it. Honestly, the most interesting part was that the facility is constantly under surveillance. Someone is watching them at all times.
The same can be said for Eve. We were just provided with further proof that she’s not Juliette, and that Hadrian’s Wall did something to her. She’s basically a robot that is all about Hadrian’s Wall. Eve seems to support them, and everything they did to her. The most obvious moment proving this is that she suggested that they do to Nick what was done to her. Now, we don’t know what happened to Juliette that turned her into Eve, but it looked painful, and it clearly wiped her personality.
We don’t know how they get their information on everything that’s going on. With Nick, we know that he either has personal experience, the Grimm books, or he goes to Monroe and Rosalee. Does Hadrian’s Wall have their own Grimm books or is it like a worldwide database that they all use?
One great thing about all of this is that Team Grimm has a united front. As Rosalee said, they all have to make the same decision about whether or not they will join Hadrian’s Wall. They should totally join if not only for the immense joy that will arise out of Monroe and Rosalee being the in secret base. Can Budd join too? His presence would make it even more hilarious.
The case of the week wasn’t all that entertaining. While it was amusing to have a Wesen make the news, the case was a train wreck. Nick and Hank didn’t really do any police work, which is a shame since Trubel teamed up with them for a bit. It would have been nice seeing the gang back together.
We immediately knew whodunnit, and then we had to deal with the ridiculous drama that was Wayne, Oliver, and Logan. It was boring. No one cares that Wayne and Oliver feel bad for hiring a homicidal Logan.
Then it got ridiculous. All of a sudden Wayne wanted to kill his brother Oliver. This convoluted scheme came out of nowhere. As if that wasn’t ridiculous enough, Wayne dies by being shot by a bunch of people with guns trying to kill the Diamond Lake Monster. What did you think of the case?
What did you think of the episode? Should Nick and everyone join Hadrian’s Wall? Does anyone care about whatever Renard is doing? Leave your thoughts in a comment below.
