In a Dish Best Served Cold we were able to get back into the procedural element of our show and dive into a strange case consisting of exploding entrails, mushrooms and Bauerschwein. Nick is still dealing with the after effects of being turned into a Dämmerzustand but it felt good getting to see him and Hank solve a case again. The feud between Bauerschwein and Blutbaden has always been a point of interest for us, and a lot of our focus in this episode was on Monroe and him having to face some very serious demons. This is not the first time he has seen a friend of his die by the hands of a Bauerschwein. One killed his good friend Hap and now unfortunately he has seen two others go down over this mindless feud. We all know Monroe can be a testament to self-discipline, but everyone has his or her limits, and after seeing his good friend literally explode in front of his eyes it makes sense that he would actively seek out revenge. It was intense seeing two best friends go blow for blow and when Nick shot Monroe we have to admit that we got a little choked up and we were in on the ruse! That's why we had to have a little fun with Monroe acting a bit... melodramatic. It was also big for us to be able to move Nick out of Monroe's and Rosalee in. It's going to be a lot of fun exploring that new dynamic.
