'Grimm' 3x17 'Synchronicity' GifTweetCap: Full Circle

The following gifs are available on this Tumblr post. “Synchronicity" continues where last week’s Grimm left off. Adalind (Claire Coffee) was busy being protected by Meisner (Damien Puckler), and Nick (David Giuntoli) was having nightmares about beheading Monroe’s (Silas Weir Mitchell) grandma at Monroe’s wedding. This week gets exciting, bringing everything together.
The episode begins with Nick's realization that he has to tell Monroe and Rosalee (Bree Turner) that he can't be the best man at their wedding. He doesn't want to kill all of their loved ones after they learn he's a Grimm after all!
Meanwhile, Meisner goes into protector mode and beats the crap out of a gang of bad guys.
One of them has Milli or Vanilli or Terence Trent D'Arby or Predator hair:
Some other bad guys grab Adalind and her baby, but Mama Grimm (Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio) is waiting for them. She's magically terrifying! Why hasn't she taught her son any of these neat tricks?
Nick's badass of a mom has supposedly been sent by the Resistance to protect this special baby from the already-powerful Royals. She whisks Adalind to safety, and all Meisner gets out of it is a little kiss on the cheek.
Nick finally tells Monroe and Rosalee about his fear of hurting someone at their wedding, and Monroe's got the perfect solution: sunglasses! Huh? Oh yeah, Nick never bothered to ask anyone the top question anyone in their right minds would have asked long ago: "How do Wesen know I'm a Grimm, and why do they freak out about it?" Well, it's because Nick's eyes turn a nice shade of "infinite darkness," as Monroe puts it. Wesen see their true selves in his eyes, which most Wesen find to be "unsettling."
The prince (Alexis Denisof) is very upset with the man he put in charge of finding Adalind and her baby (Gene Freedman), who are now flying away in an airplane. So, he calls on a couple of his Wesen to dispatch him, in his favorite gruesome manner. Then, he sends a new guy (Philip Anthony-Rodriguez) off to find them.
Nick's mom tells Adalind that her sister had kids, causing some confusion initially, but the flashback indicates that she said it that way because of the fact that she basically abandoned Nick, leaving him with Aunt Marie. Now she's been put in charge of protecting someone else's baby, and decides to have fun with the powerful little tyke by dangling a locket containing Young Nick's photo in front of her. You can't see it in the gif, but the baby's eyes begin glowing the royal shade of purple. She almost sends the plane crashing, too!
The plane lands for a split second, and Adalind appears with her baby. Some poor sap freaks out about the witchy landing, and begins calling the cops until Mama Grimm comes to the rescue again. Oh, and his license plate shows that they're in Oregon.

Rosalee tries on her grandma's wedding dress, and it needs no alterations.

Juliette (Bitsie Tulloch) also looks at some dresses, clearly considering marriage. Later, Nick sees the ring he used when he proposed the first time, and decides to try again... until his mom shows up... with Adalind and her baby!
Mama Grimm has no idea why they hate each other, completely unaware of the fact that Adalind nearly ruined Juliette's life by putting her in a coma, and causing her to fall for Renard (Sasha Roiz). She also didn't know that Nick took Adalind's power by kissing her (causing her to bite him and drink Grimm blood), and also forgot about killing Adalind's mom.
Adalind is dead set against staying with Nick and Juliette, believing that Nick wants to kill her rather than protect her. She takes off, and the baby makes Juliette believe that she was left behind.
If course, Adalibd brings the baby to Baby Daddy Renard. Mama Grimm doesn't even know he's Nick's captain, and wants to kill him anyway once she finds out. Nick stops her, preferring the peaceful route of a nice little chat about who can best protect the baby instead.

  1. I really need to get caught up on Grimm. It's right up my alley.

  2. I like this show too; that wedding dress may have fit but I debate the need for no alterations. I think that dress could be moderened up a bit while still keeping the sentiment. :)
