Grimm “The Last Grimm Standing” Review

Grimm Last Grimm Standing

Finally! Grimm has finally stepped up with an episode that doesn’t make me scratch my head and wonder why the heck I’m still hanging on to this show. “The Last Grimm Standing” was a crazy episode that showed more than Nick fighting off a monster of the week with Monroe’s coaching. “The Last Grimm Standing” was actually a quasi Fight Club meets The Hunger Games type of episode AND showed us layers of what Captian Renard has been up to.

Action and drama aside, Renard’s involvement in the Wesen world was probably my favorite part of this episode. Finally we got to see a little more of Renard and what he’s got up his sleeve, and his actions (picking the monsters that would battle it out to the death as well as that crazy final scene with the priest) really made me wonder exactly what else this Reaper has going on behind the scenes.

Here’s a thought: While we all thing that Renard is evil and plotting against Nick and the things the Grimm’s stand for, what if Reapers and the Grimm people are actually fighting on the same side?

Reapers are supposed to restore order and keep the natural balance, while Grimm fight against evil in a more vigilante origin. This could also explain why Renard has left Nick alone even knowing that he is a Grimm.

One other thing I loved about “The Last Grimm Standing” was that Nick actually had a chance to save Monroe’s life this time instead of Monroe constantly saving Nick’s ass. These two are getting closer and closer and why not? Monroe is the one person that Nick can trust and accepts that he’s Grimm, and helps him through everything he has going on.

But the downside to this Grimm-ness? Juliet is losing patience with the long hours and with Nick bailing on her all the time, and rightly so. So here are my thoughts with this. Nick loves Juliet, but if he loses that rock and that normalcy that he’s got going on at home; things could get messy in the field.

All of that aside, “The Last Grimm Standing” was an amazing episode and hopefully the direction that Grimm continues to take in the future.
