It's definitely a case of "She swallowed the spider to catch the fly" in Friday's episode of NBC's Grimm as Eve (Bitsie Tulloch) takes a trip through the mirror to catch the menacing skull creature on the other side, and Nick (David Giuntoli) follows in order to catch Eve, and Adalind (Claire Coffee) offers to follow in order to catch Nick.
With just 3 episodes remaining, the puzzle pieces really start to come together this week in "Where the Wild things Were," even more so when Renard (Sasha Roiz) forms an uneasy alliance with Nick's friends in his absence.
Will combining their knowledge help peel away the last remaining mysteries surrounding the stick and the prophesy? And just how connected is Diana in events to come?
We've seen the episode a little early, thanks to our friends at NBC, and have a number of teasers about Friday night's episode to share with you. As always, we avoid outright spoilers, and plot and character reveals that would spoil your enjoyment on the night.
Having said that (don't you just hate it when people say that?), we suggest a modicum of caution nonetheless. It's the internet and one man's gently whispered suggestive half hint is another man's ten foot tall flaming spoiler with bells on.
“None of Us are Who We Used to Be”
“None of us are who we used to be,” Eve tells Nick, accidentally paraphrasing Alice in Wonderland this week.
She could do worse. Wonderland is a perfect metaphor for everything that happens in Friday’s trippy installment. Even Wu comments that “I suppose this is how Alice felt falling down the rabbit hole.”
Of course, Eve is referencing her and Nick’s past, Juliette’s horrific actions and a whole lot more. If you were wondering if this former couple would ever get the opportunity to bring closure to their relationship, or even to speak candidly about their past and issues of guilt and responsibility, then the answer is a resounding yes.
There is some truly great dialogue in this tonally perfect moment.
