to the point of wu’s situation.does it really make a lot of sense to blame nick (and hank too btw) for keeping the truth from wu? was it the right time honestly? we saw wu’s condition after aswang attack, it was terrible. what if he withdrew into himself? he probably isn’t able to apprehend any explanations currently. what if he’s stuck in denial? like doctor said “he’s having a tough time talking about it”. what if he just refuses to talk about what he has seen? we don’t know and they didn’t bother to enlighten us about the details. i think we lack some facts here.
This is a good point. Also, I made a prompt/rant on the Dreamwidth Grimm kink meme and someone said their mom pointed out they might not have wanted to tell him with doctors potentially listening.Though I do agree with people in so much as that telling Wu in the aftermath of the attack, when he was saying “it wasn’t her” might have stopped him thinking he was actually crazy. So yeah. Details, we need them.
somehow this juliette’s line about lie as “a basis of any lasting relationship” got me upset a lot. i feel like it just wasn’t fair. because, juliette, i get your hint. but nick DID try to tell you the truth, remember? and you didn’t believe him. you thought he was out of his mind. so if nick lacks honesty, well.. may be you lack trust then.
(This whole paragraph is off topic and I’m sorry) Everything about this episode stresses me out, because everyone’s yelling at Nick for not telling Wu even when he checked himself into the hospital, and I’d agree- except that Nick not telling him goes against the policies the writers established for him earlier in the episode. The entire reason Nick didn’t want to tell Wu was that he was trying to protect him. He listened to Hank and said they’d only tell if it was absolutely necessary. And it IS now. Now, telling him is the way to protect him. Nick’s justifications were always wanting what was best for Wu. And now…? And that’s not even mentioning Hank, who was just angrily arguing that the needed to tell Wu, not doing so when Wu was in the hospital. I can’t be pissed at either of them, because I’m pissed at the writers. IT JUST MAKES NO SENSE WHATSOEVER. And I adore the writers, so a;sldkfjgh. I was so looking forward to a Wu-centric episode, and now I kind of want to pretend it doesn’t exist- but I can’t because of the repercussions of this next week.
ANYWAY. In regards to Juliette, I think she was just trying to make a general point that just being so casual about lying in any kind of relationship is not so good. It is also worth noting that Nick went quite a while not telling her out of choice. Maybe things would have been easier if he’d tried sooner. (I’d have paid money for it if we meant we got to avoid the whole coma/love triangle thing). But, overall, I agree. He wasn’t saying “LULZ, LET’S LIE FOR THE FUN OF IT!” Again, he was trying to protect Wu- like he’d tried to protect her. When she first found out for real, she understood why he’d kept it from her before. So yeah. This whole thing just feels off, and I don’t like it. ):
Also: DREW WU? REALLY?
Did you know that by spelling the english word SOCKS outloud, you are also saying the spanish phrase Eso si que es, which means “it is what is is”.
My spanish teacher told us this last year and I will never forget it
can we say socks instead of yolo?
Mama, just killed a man #SOCKS
