Does anyone beside me feel that Monroe (and Rosalie) should be getting paid as consultants for the Portland PD? They've provided so much help to Nick and company and Renard is aware of their contributions. The couple have spent so much TIME working on all the main characters's problems in the series it's a wonder their private businesses continue to flourish. Think it's time they get paid. Surely, Renard can come up with a reason to put them on the payroll.
I mean they both do more than enough, I guess the problem is once its official, it opens it up to the other members of the department, and Renard's superiors, who would naturally wonder what their doing.
As a lot of Nick, Hank and Renard's activities are off the record, it could be problematic justifying it.
As you said it would exspose them and then they would no longer be a secret, people would ask questions and that could lead to them being in danger. Maybe Nick and company could just give them a present, not necessarilymoney.
