Grimm predictions

Grimm Season 4 has started out pretty well. I enjoyed seasons 2-3 as well, but my enthusiasm for the show was cemented at the end of season 3 with the introduction of the character, Trubel. There's a shocker. She's a character tailor-made for me: the emotionally screwed-up brunette tomboy tough-girl.

I am not in Grimm fandom (in fact, I know of only one member of my flist who even watches the show besides me), but I suspect that right about now, there are a lot of grumblings about Trubel being the Scrappy-Do/Dawn Summers of the show--a young character introduced to inject "new blood," but really just an annoying hanger-on/wanna be.

I suspect, though, that the show this season might introduce a good grimm/bad grimm scenario--you know, once Nick gets his powers back. The royals will find out about Trubel (not hard, now that she's on the police/FBI radar), and attempt to recruit her. She'll kill the deputy mayor of Sunnydale, then have a falling out with Nick and/or just be naive enough to fall for the royals' crap. Then they'll pit the two grimms against each other.

Hopefully not. I like her as the enthusiastic protege who is finally finding a purpose in life/self-confidence, but I know how these things go in TV land.

I really like Trubel too, and I share the suspicion that they're going to have her go bad, because, well, that's what happens to female characters like her on shows like this. :(

Sigh. So predictable. Maybe they'll surprise us.

Grimm has some pretty good female characters. Rosalie and Mom!Grimm are the best of the group. Adelyn is a classic femme-fatale, but she's complex, sometimes even sympathetic. Juliet is a bit dull, but she's improved markedly in the past season (not hard, considering she went from a coma to a puppet in season 2).

I'm not in Grimm fandom but from what I hear, general consensus on Trubel is actually overall very positive, which is surprising but kind of heartening.

That is heartening. Although it makes it me more nervous about the direction of her storyline, somehow.
