With only five episodes left, I’m starting to worry that not enough time is being spent setting up the final, series ending confrontation.
I’m not hating on the episode. I loved it in the same way I have always loved Grimm, i.e., in spite of, and maybe because of its flaws.
The episode felt entirely rushed yet still had me wanting more. The level of character development has increased respectably and the acting has improved. I’m in for the duration, but it is starting to look like we may run out of time before the larger story settles and starts to make sense.
What we ended up with this week is a situation where the competing stories in the episode worked against each other. The interesting parts about the MOTW should have been fleshed out and the season arc needed to be the central focus from now on. It looks promising that the last four episodes will do just that as the progression to series end moves along. I’m hoping for the best.
