Grimm ep 1 'Fugitive' - season 6 recap and comment

In the last episode of season 5, Diana uses her puppet-magic to make her father, Captain Sean Renard, kill Bonaparte. The miracle stick heals injuries of Nick Burkhardt and Eve (Nick’s girlfriend Juliette).

Here is my drama recap of this remarkable episode 1 "Fugitive".

Opening quote of episode 1: "Maybe this world is another planet's hell."

The is a quote from a British author Aldous Huxley. Well, this hell is in Portland where the pro-Wesen organization Black Claw is trying to gain power and take over the world.

While Nick fighting with the Black Claw members, Monroe, Rosalee, Detective Hank Griffin, Sergeant Wu, Trubel and Eve are down in the catacombs to look for a way to escape. Later, when they realize Nick is not dead, they are very relieved.

Including Renard himself, nobody understands why he killed Bonaparte. After talking to his wife Adalind, who confusingly is also Nick's common-law spouse, he got the answer. His daughter Diana wants him to protect her mother by killing Bonaparte.

How can anyone fight Diana's super magic power? Will the Grimm Nick and Adalind's son be able to fight Diana's power?

In the human world, aka Portland, Renard killed Bonaparte. So, he needs to make sure he won't get caught. He frames Nick for Bonaparte’s death. Now, Portland homicide investigator Nick Burkhardt is a fugitive. His friends are trying to help him run away.

Before that, they dumped all the dead bodies at Nick's place into the catacombs. How convenient to have a catacomb under your house! Deposing dead bodies in Monroe and Rosalee's Spice Shop will be harder, though.

Eve experiences the Death Grip and freezes when a dead body grabs her arm at the Spice Shop. What is the Death Grip? According to one of Rosalee's books, if one goes into death with a pure soul, one can trade his / her way into the afterlife. So, instead of the dead Black Claw guy, Eve will go to hell? How can they stop this? There is an easy fix. Cut off the dead person’s hand.

How can Eve have a pure soul? Just like Monroe says in the drama, "Yeah, that doesn’t really make sense after everything she did, no offense." Did the miracle stick purify Eve? So Nick also has a pure soul now?

With a pure soul, Eve can see symbols of the cloth the stick has been wrapped in. The same ones she sees on the dead man's face during the Death Grip. Does it mean Nick can see the symbols, too?

Adalind calls Nick and they talk, hug and kiss in Renard’s house. Hey guys, Diana is in the same house, too!! What if she witnesses you guys kissing? This isn't "I saw mommy kisses Santa Claus", Nick! Diana murders everyone she hates! 

Oh, yeah, Nick, when Eve returns back to normal, not as a Hexenbiest but your girlfriend Juliette, what will you do?

Well, I guess Nick has to worry about this later. Renard orders a city-wide shoot-to-kill APB (all-points bulletin) out on Nick.

I didn't know watching Grimm will make me use the online Cambridge Dictionary. Maybe I didn't watch enough detective dramas, I had no idea what an APB was. Okay, this is how the Cambridge Dictionary explains this term.

"A radio message about a person or vehicle that the police are looking for, sent to all the police officers who work in a particular area."

Thank you Cambridge Online Dictionary

As a fugitive, Nick hides inside Bud's workshop. But Bud's also under surveillance since he calls Nick often. How come they didn't find out Adalind calls Nick often, too? What will Renard do if he knows Adalind calls Nick from their house more than once?

Meanwhile at the precinct, Hank and Wu discover that their Captain’s campaign PR manager is dead. In her apartment, Renard’s fingerprints are everywhere. Ha, Renard, you're in trouble now!

After everyone gathered at Bud's workshop, they decide to create a distraction. Bud and Monroe load a freezer onto Bud’s truck and pretend Nick is hiding inside the freezer. They hope to lure the police officer Franco (Nick and Hank's friend) away from where they are. Unfortunately, Renard and the whole Portland police force come to surround Bud's shop.

Eve tries to woge into a Hexenbiest to save everyone but she collapses. So who will come save Team Grimm?
