  • I rewatched the episode where the wesen council was first introduced. The thing that not very satisfying was that the council's assassin just shot them to death. A lethal shot. That's it.

    Man, that was way too easy for them. If I was that assassin, I would have shot them in places lethal, but not instant death, but can cause terrible pain, then have them know the extreme fear of realizing their actions and the repercussion they would bring with for breaking the most sacred law of the Codex of Honor. Then I watch them die slowly.

    It's like in the Assassin's Creed, where Altair and Ezio assassinate their targets and witness their deaths in the memory corridor, seeing their fear and regrets. Then a "Requiescant in pace" to send them on their way.

    The council's pretty brainless with dealing this sorta thing. Thoughts?

    • Cole and Krystal broke a major Wesen law, so they had to be killed asap. There was no point in a slow death

    • The requirement was for a public display of power. The object was to both punish Cole and Crystal and to scare the copy-cats.

      "Display of power" sounds a little imperialism to me.

      I agree with a display, though. Use them as an example for a big warning to prevent wesen genocide. Acceptable. But with a little loss, nevertheless, for I wanted to see the fear on their faces as they die...!

      Imperialism seems right to me, with Royal groups manoeuvring for domination and the fear they provoke in Monroe and Rosalee.

    • Whose side are they on, anyway? Are they with the laufer of verrat? Or are they just another party of bureaucrats? Are they with the Royals or anyone or are they an independent party?

    • I'd say independent.

      So... if there's an open war between Laufer and Verrat, which one will the "independent" party take side with?

    • I'd say neither. At the conclusion I see them wiping out the winner to control all Wesen society.

    • Too bad, I heard from a rumor that the neutral parties were the first to be *neutralized*.

      See what I did there? :-)

    • The Council is there to judge and enforce the law on all Wesen, if they're in the Verrat, the Läufer or whatnot. Except for some lone idiots, Verrat or Läufer don't want the world to know about them. So neither side has a real reason to destroy them and I don't see the Council in any imminent danger.

      In Europe the country of Switzerland is a neutral party too. And they survived both WWs relativly unharmed. Neutral serves in both way so why would they wanna destroy them?

    • Well, that's what I'd do. Neutralizing the neutral parties so they could either be destroyed or serve me, thus obtaining one more ally and more forces. That's the thing: A and B at war. Neutral parties serve A, then B wants to destroy them. They serve B then A wants to destroy them.

      Good to know they aren't in any immediate danger, though. And it's a good thing they are staying out of Nick's life. And/Or Kelly's.

    • If you want all people around you to be your sworn enemies go ahead ^^°

      But if the Neutral Party serves A they are NOT neutral. They would be if they just provide a neutral ground for negotiations for instance. Or if they treat the wounded.

      It's not a very clever tactic to kill neutral parties first. With that action, you force everyone to take sides and don't expect them to be on yours... >.<

    • You got a point mate. Hope they know enough to stay out of the way when the Läufer and Verrat collides to avoid being incinerated.

    • I hope so ^^

    • And, alas, Black Claw assassinated the Wesen Council -- the Council's intelligence agents must have been either co-opted/recruited by BC or not very good intelligence agents to have the Council meeting infiltrated like that!

      I'd like to see (or imagine, if the Grimm writers don't go there) that at some point Alexander will appear in Portland to recruit Rosalee [with her Calvert family heritage of Council service] to help him re-form (and also REFORM!) the Wesen Council for the 21st Century!

    • They should have a Grimm Council Member.

    • I thought the wesen council was one of the weakest elements of the series. I didn't really want to see them killed off, but I was glad they weren't around any more.

    • That's was they need to create a New and Reformed Council.
