'Grimm' Season 3 Finale Recap Will Remind You of All the Supernatural Action Before Season 4 Brings Even More
It's been almost five months since NBC's hit supernatural thriller said goodbye-for-now to fans, but now, finally, Grimm will return on Friday, Oct. 24 for Season 4, which is sure to start off with a bang. To give you just a quick recap of the Grimm Season 3 finale, last we saw, our favorite cops, Hexenbiests, Fuchsbau, Blutbad, veterinarian, and rookie Grimm of Portland were either left bleeding and dying, getting married, sleeping with someone that's not their girlfriend, chopping off heads, or fleeing the country in search of a baby. Yeah, it's safe to say Season 3 ended in quite the shocking nature, especially now that the lead character is no longer a Grimm — say what?
Can the upcoming season be any juicier than what Season 3 brought us? If Grimm picks up where it left off, it has to be. But since so much went down in the finale, and it aired so long ago, I understand if you've forgotten some of the details. So the Season 4 premiere brings even more craziness to stay on top of, let's catch up on the past season by refreshing our memories of that Grimm-tastic finale.
It's a Nice Day for a Wesen Wedding
The most important thing to happen in the Season 3 finale was Monroe and Roslaee (a.k.a. Monrosalee) finally tying the knot! Seriously, does it get any cuter than a Blutbad and Fuchsbau professing their love for one another in front of their fellow Wesen and humans? Yeah, I didn't think so. But their wedding day started off on the wrong foot. Rosalee had to get a new dress (thank goodness, because that first one was hideous) and Nick had to be all blue steel cool with those sunglasses, so no one would notice that Monroe's best man was actually a Grimm. Talk about all the pressure and stress! Despite the wedding almost being a disaster, they got through the ceremony unscathed.
Then, Trubel appeared. Not only did she arrive to give Nick the potion to cure him, but she also showed up without sunglasses, which caused all of the Wesen guests to freak out that a Grimm was in attendance. Oh, and Nick soon realized his Grimm powers are caput. In between the chaos, Nick, Juliette, Hank, and Trubel managed to escape with a WTF expression across their faces.
As I Lay Bleeding
For once, Captain Renard tried to do the right thing and ended up getting shot multiple times by that meddlesome FBI Agent Weston. After some investigating, Renard figured out that his on-again, off-again lover and mother of his child, Adalind, was trying to take Nick's Grimm powers, so he paid Nick and Juliette a visit at their house. Well, when he arrived Weston shot him and it wasn't pretty. Thankfully, Trubel showed up and chopped Weston's head off (seriously, she's so badass). Unfortunatley, Renard was left bleeding out and on his way to the hospital. Will he live? Will he die? Let's hope it's the former, because I cannot get enough of his shirtless rage.
Mama Said Knock You Out
Don't ever mess with Adalind, especially when she's a mother searching for her "kidnapped" daughter. Yep, she took Nick's Grimm abilities just like he took her Hexenbiest powers. Karma's a bitch, isn't it, Nick? Evil Adalind is the best Adalind, and I would never want to mess with this woman. Let's all take a moment to give Claire Coffee a round of applause for her fantastic work. OK. Moving on. She completed one mission and is onto to next. Adalind escaped Portland and is on a plane — most likely to Vienna — where she thinks Prince Viktor is holding her baby. Nope, he's not, because Nick's mama has the baby. Poor Adalind, your happy ending is a long ways away.
Let's Have Sex Juliette... Just Kidding
Hey, Nick. Yeah, I'm talkin' to you. You slept with the wrong girl! Thanks to Adalind's spell, she transformed herself into Juliette (who else loved seeing Bitsie Tulloch show her darker side?) and slept with Nick to take his powers. Somehow, Nick didn't even notice that he wasn't sleeping with Juliette. How can you not notice that you're having sex with a different person?! Couldn't you use your Grimm powers for that? Huh? This is one bump in the road that is going to take a loooooong time to fix. Nick and Juliette just got back on track, but now I feel like they're back at square one. There is a silver lining, however: Nick's no longer a Grimm (for now), so maybe Juliette can live soundly knowing that.
Drew Wu, Still Out of the Loop
He's the only character who doesn't know about the existence of Wesen or Grimms. Well, there was that one time he found out, but Nick and Hank let him believe he was crazy (ugh, not cool). Wu was all back on track fighting crime with his witty one-liners, but now that he's discovered Trubel's Wesen drawings, he's reflecting back to that time he came in contact with that creepy aswang. Will he finally learn of Wesen? Will Nick and Hank convince him there's nothing to Trubel's drawings? Maybe Wu will investigate on his own? Sooner or later, he will discover the truth, and Nick's going to have some explaining to do.
