NBC’s Grimm Returns With “Face Off” And Lots of Revelations [Advance Review]

Is it possible to be excited and annoyed at the same time? Excited because Grimm brings back such a fantastic new episode tonight and annoyed because 1) it ended way too fast and 2) it leaves us on yet another cliffhanger. I just don’t have the strength to wait another week to find out what happens next!

Grimm has sneakily grown into such an exciting series and has become one of my favorites. And after waiting months to find out what the aftermath of Nick finding out about Juliette and Renard is, the show is finally back to our screen tonight, March 8th at 9pm on NBC, with a brand new episode titled “Face Off.”

I got a chance to watch the episode early and let me tell you, there is much to be excited about. Here are a few things you can expect/look forward to in this episode:

The Aftermath

So now that Nick (David Giuntoli) knows about Juliette (Bitsie Tulloch) and Captain Renard (Sasha Roiz), he of course won’t take that revelation too well.

Rosalee Is Back!

Oh how I’ve missed Rosalee (Bree Turner). Granted she wasn’t totally gone from the show, but I’ve missed her interactions with Monroe (Silas Weir Mitchell) and with the rest of the characters as well. But no more because this episode marks her return and it’s a really sweet one followed by her getting right back into it trying to help Nick cure Juliette.

Monroe Is On Fire

Speaking of Monroe, either he’s on fire this episode or I’ve forgotten how funny and adorable he is. He made the episode that much more entertaining to watch and it’s no wonder he’s a fan favorite. So if you love him, get ready to love him even more.

Steamy Love Sequences

Get ready for a couple of steamy scenes. In fact the first one is probably one the most original ones I’ve seen. It was such a great exploration of opposites between compulsive sexual attraction and inner true feelings. Only in Grimm!

The second one is unexpected in another very Grimm-like way.


This episode is one of revelations. But this time it’s not revelations for us the audience, but for the characters themselves. Things that you’ve been wishing would come to light get explored and moves the story along way more than I expected it ever would.

After tonight’s episode, Grimm will be taken to the next level story wise and there is nothing more thrilling. They are definitely moving the story along and fans of the show will surely appreciate those new developments.


Did I mention the cliffhanger they leave us on? There are two.

The first one ends on a really beautiful visual while at the same time making you yearn to know what happens next.

And the second one will make you go “What?!!”

I think that’s enough to get you ready for tonight, so don’t miss Grimm‘s return at 9pm on NBC. Who’s excited?
