Monroe is saved, he and Rosalee are heading off on their honeymoon and Wu is happily learning as much as he can about Wesen. The biggest conflict left in “Grimm” Season 4 currently? Juliette trying to figure out how to deal with her Hexenbiest transformation.
Bitsie Tulloch already revealed that Juliette wouldn’t make the smartest decision about resolving this life-changing problem — as in, she isn’t just going to tell Nick like she maybe probably should — and in Jan. 23’s episode viewers finally get to see how she is going to deal with it: By telling Renard.
Juliette and Renard have always had an … interesting relationship, and it makes sense why she would think he is the best person to trust. He knows Nick and is also a Hexenbiest, and he also can keep a secret while helping her deal with it. But if the promo for next week’s episode is any indication, Juliette’s secret isn’t going to stay with just Renard for that much longer.
But even if she has already let the Hexenbiest out of the bag with one person, more than just Nick could be on to her. It can’t be a coincidence that the final shot of Wu looking through the book lingered over him learning about Hexenbiests. Chances are he is going to have a role to play in unveiling her big secret, but here’s hoping it’s on Juliette’s terms and not someone else’s. It’s not her fault she’s transforming; she made the choice that set her on this path for the good of everyone.
This storyline is a great one for Tulloch, who is getting to stretch her acting muscles for a new twist on the damsel-in-distress trope that gives her character a lot more agency. She is a great example of how the writers are putting the ladies of “Grimm” front and center, as Bree Turner has been fantastic as a Rosalee willing to do anything — even kill someone — to rescue Monroe.
Since its return from its winter hiatus “Grimm” has been on a roll, and here’s to the series keeping up these great episodes. After all, Adalind and Viktor will in Portland soon.
