“A Man’s real possession is his memory. In nothing else is he rich, In nothing else is he poor.”
“Octopus Head” is the October 31 premiere 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 at 8 p.m. CT on NBC.
The mysterious blonde is Renard’s mother, Elizabeth. She saves him with some creepy looking two headed snake. Thankfully, Renard wasn’t awake to experience that. It will be interesting to see the family dynamic.
Elizabeth is very up to date on current events, well at least the Nick side of things. It’s curious, and it hints that Renard and his mom keep in touch. How cute. What does it say about Renard though that he had a romantic relationship with Adalind who looks very similar to his mom?
Speaking of Adalind, she is being held captive in Vienna. Eh, it’s pretty boring. The most exciting part is the end with Nick. There’s some mystery with the crazy sounding guy that talks to Adalind, but right now it’s not really all that intriguing. It’s just there. Do you see any way for Adalind to get out of that cell?
One thing that has been really great is how much everyone has become fond of Trubel. Hank is in protective parent mode during this entire episode. Considering how Trubel was introduced, it is unexpected that everyone would become so taken with her. Nick protecting her makes sense because she is another Grimm.
Honestly, the case doesn’t get any more exciting. The best thing about it is that Octopus Head seems to have taken all of Trubel’s pain away. He got from her all of her nightmares back when she was attacked by Wesen and didn’t know what they were.
Trubel might be different now. She did said she slept better than she had in a long time. Do you think anything else about her will be different now? It would be interesting if it did.
Not so surprisingly, Juliette tells Monroe and Rosalee to slow down their search for a cure to Nick’s condition. What’s annoying is that Juliette speaks on behalf of Nick, even though Nick has no idea about it. Monroe or Rosalee better mention this to Nick. Do you think if Nick finds out, it will change anything between him and Juliette?
Wu needs to know. Yup, that’s basically all there is to say because this feeling has been happening for a while now. The writers are dragging it out, and there doesn’t seem to be a good reason. The only thing that could happen is Wu seriously messes things up by not knowing the truth about Trubel. Shouldn’t Nick and Hank have figured that out by now?
Adalind and Nick are perhaps psychically linked. It’s an interesting twist, but it is hard to tell what it means. They switched bodies, momentarily, or at least switched eyes. It’s weird to talk about. Do you think this weird thing is beneficial to either Nick or Adalind or will it result in both of their deaths?
The writers will have to explain more of what is happening. Hopefully this will be done in the next episode once Rosalee and Elizabeth look into what Adalind did to Nick. It’s hard to imagine that Adalind somehow missed a side effect of the curse, but she was using her mother’s spell book and not her own.
