Grimm - 3.14 - Mommy Dearest - Top 5
Sorry this is so late. In Grimm 3.14, Mommy Dearest, we finally get a Wu-centric episode. As a huge fan of the character, I have been waiting for this since season 1. Perhaps I went in with too high expectations or maybe it's how frustrated I was with the Grimm Gang at the end, but I didn't care for this one like I usually do. While there was plenty of good, the episode was slow and the ending so horrible it knocked the show down an entire letter grade by itself. Right now I am calling for a Wu redo.
2. Wu - Wu is one of my favorite characters because he always brings the snark. I expected this episode to be one of my favorites, but instead it was a big disappointment. Snark-less Wu breaks my heart. I do love the back story we got on him though. I never really thought of Wu as pining over a forbidden, unrequited love. I'm not sure why unless it was all those times he was trying to get Hank to be his wingman at a bar in season 1. Still this development fleshes out his character well and makes me wonder if we will see Dana anymore. I doubt it but she would make an interesting drop-in character like Bud does. (Whom I miss by the way.) Here's hoping that Wu is back soon and in his right mind, ready for more screen time than he currently has.
Screencaps by Grimm Wikia, 3 if by Space, Manicomioseries, and Shallow Graves.
