NBC’s “Grimm” returns with “Face Off”

Grimm is finally back with “Face Off.” NBC describes the episode as  “Nick and Renard (finally go head-to-head in light of Nick’s discovery, while Juliette and Renard’s magnetic attraction reaches dangerous new heights.” The episode picks up right where it left off in “Season of the Hexenbiest.”

Grimm is one of my favorite shows. My household was excited to see it return. It is fantasy and it is fun. Or it was fun until it became “Days of Our Lives”. The series started out with Nick solving cases involving strange and wonderful creatures. The show was fresh and interesting. Nick solved crime, kept his secret from is partner and for some reason put up with his annoying girlfriend. Now the show is getting convoluted and tedious.

The show is loosely, very loosely based on Grimm’s Fairy Tales. We were introduced to Monroe () a Blutbad. “A Blutbad (plural: Blutbaden; pronunciation: BLOOT-baat, BLOOT-baad in Grimm; Germ. Blut “blood” + Bad “bath”) is a wolf-like Wesen that is basis of the fairy tale character of the Big Bad Wolf.” Grimm Wikki  Monroe is one of the best characters to come around in a while. Mitchell adds just the right amount of weird to make you believe.

Juliette Silverton ( is Nick Burkhardt’s human girlfriend.
Adalind Schade (Claire Coffee) is a Hexenbeist. “A Hexenbiest (HEK-sən-beest; pl: -biester Germ. Hexe “witch” + Biest “beast”) is a witch-like Wesen that resembles a demon or goblin, with visibly rotting or disfigured flesh. They are based on witches such as the one in “Snow White”. “
