I’m throwing up a warning flag. Grimm has been on an upward trend this year, but it’s coming close to veering off the tracks. This week had some good moments, but it largely highlighted where things are starting to go wrong.
The last time I checked, the show is named Grimm because it follows the story of a Grimm. Yet, in recent weeks, Nick has slipped further and further into the background. He’s supposed to be the Grimm – he’s supposed to be kicking ass, taking Wesen names, and running the show. Instead, he takes orders from Renard and runs to Monroe with every question. Post-Zombie Nick is bland and seems to just go with the flow.
