Grimm Season 4 Episode 4 Review: Dyin’ On a Prayer

TV has been complex. From a regular drama to vampires, magic, history creepy twists, gossips and lies, TV audiences are served all classy to bizarre menus. And yet we all wanted the shows to meet our fantasies.   When a show takes a wrong turn, patience requires us to stick around and wait for it to re-route on what we expected the show has to be.

Grimm has been lucky up to date in fixing all its past shortcomings.  It is delighting to see how quickly the series corrected few issues the show have had previously.

Trubel told Nick about Wesen FBI conspiracy and their quest of her clever Grimm skills for what are certainly their wicked goals. Whew! It didn’t take her that for half the season. She’s more mature, and has come into her own as an asset and an ally to Nick. As a matured character, her personality and enthusiasm are more compound.

She now asks questions we’ve always wondered ourselves. How many other Grimms out there in the world? What is the world besides Grimm, Wesen, and humans? These questions rose through Trubel and Grimm is now willing and ready to take it the leap off to another ability dimension.

Nick has been a lone-wolf Grimm and little by little, Grimm has added new layers to what Nick knows about the world of Wesen. Season 3 probed pretty deep into Wesen culture, and now it appears that Season 4 is all about the Grimm side of things—and more of Wesen because of hate-bricks for MonRoesalee.  MonRoesalee mixed marriage was a controversial one in the Wesen world.  But it results in convincing their parents about their union were the easy part. It is amazing and perfect forever.

This episode was an added non-Wesen/non-Grimm creature trait along the lines of “Volcanalis” but with more heart and awkwardness. A rabbi’s dying prayers because of sickly watching his sister and nephew suffering a lot from violence at the hands of her psycho alcoholic Wesen ex-husband. He prayed for a Gollum to keep little David safe. He didn’t realize that those old-timey prayers were heavy-duty stuff. Davy’s evil stepfather ended up with a couple lungful of clay, and also his evenly awful step-uncle and anyone who might unintentionally look sideways at this Gollum’s charge.

It was uncomfortable to know that the only way to defeat the naughty Gollum was to pretend-torment an already disturbed child into accidentally summoning his supernatural protector.

David turned on his guardian when it attacked Trubel, felling the clay giant and becoming a hero in his own right was perfect. The narrative brought full circle to David’s story, and also an important part of Trubel’s. She came to Nick scared, traumatized and worried. Now she’s found trust and assurance in herself and her own heroes that made her to pass her knowledge to David.

In Vienna, Adalind got herself stopped by the creepy faces in the walls of the tower her creepy guide was leading her through. The walls were definitely terrifying.

Momma Renard In Portlanda beat up some of Adalind’s go-go juice and MonRosalee got some solid hate mail. It seems that Liz’s potion needs something from Juliette to completely bring Nick’s powers back and all.
