Grimm Season 4 Random Thoughts

Last season, I fell far behind with watching my favorite American dramas Supernatural and Grimm, partly because of my daily recapping of The Amazing Race Philippines Season 2. (But mostly because of real grown up life. *sigh*) =D Anyway, I was able to binge on both series during my family’s May vacation to the Philippines. And while I wasn’t able to fully recap either series last season, I did take some notes of things I found particularly interesting or moments I loved.

With Halloween a day away and season 5 of Grimm premiering tonight, here are my random notes for season 4’s episodes. Looking back now, I almost don’t even understand or remember what I was writing about. (lol) But my overall sentiment with the developments of the crazy season at the end, I still feel very strongly about going into the season 5 premiere. SEASON 5!!! Can you believe it?!
