It’s been almost four months since we last saw our favorite Friday night series, Grimm. And the show’s creators really kept us hanging. In the penultimate 2012 episode “To Protect and Serve Man,” Monroe caught Nick’s girlfriend Juliette kissing Nick’s boss in the spice shop and Monroe struggled in the last episode before the hiatus, “Season of the Hexenbiest,” with whether or not he should tell Nick and how he should reveal the bad news. The cause of all the problems in Portland is Adalind, back to stir up everyone again. Or worse. If it’s been too long to remember all that happened, now’s the time to caught up.
Much of the last episode revolved around Silas Weir Mitchell’s Monroe, who made our borg.com “Best of 2012” list. His innocence and angst with getting stuck between Nick and Juliette (Bitsie Tulloch) added some comic relief to the otherwise dark events. Nick and Juliette split after Monroe revealed to Nick (David Giuntoli) almost all that he knew and Juliette informed Nick she had feelings for another guy. Juliette ended up at Monroe’s, remembering a bit about the night she lost her memory. She’s tired of being left in the dark by everyone around her. Monroe responds, “The dark does have its bright side.”
