In "Goodnight, Sweet Grimm" we picked up right where we left off in "The Waking Dead," with our focus being mainly on Prince Eric Renard and his confidant Baron Samedi. As he so often does, Monroe puts it quite eloquently: "A member of the Royal family came here? That sounds kinda revolutionary to me." Revolutionary indeed. Not only does Eric's presence disrupt the well-being of Portland as a whole, it becomes a family affair as well. In an extremely powerful scene, several years and assassination-attempts in the making, Eric and Sean sit down face-to-face to hash out their differences and to discuss their respective relationships with one of the most powerful Grimms on the scene for quite some time. Eric ends up essentially posing a truce to his half-brother, inviting him back into the family's good graces. Labeling this as suspicious would be an understatement. It's always tremendously difficult killing off a character, but we knew that in order for Adalind to regain her powers, something monumental had to occur, and that something came in the killing of Frau Pech. Nick has been through a lot, but getting hit by the Cracher-Mortel and becoming Dämmerzustand is unprecedented. Now the only question that remains is... where are they taking him?
