I hope Wu will not become a Blutbad! This will be a VERY stupid situation. I understand why some fans here wants EVERYONE to be a Wesen or Grimm or some sort of a super power character. Some people watch too much Super Friends, Avengers, Justice League, X-Men, etc...
Have you noticed even Monroe hardly woge and join the fight, only when really need too. Wu is just there as a supporting actor and help Nick and Hank, just like Monroe and Rosalee, but they all have their place.
If ths will be the case like this then everyone and anyone can be a wesen just like the stupid mask. Its not longer "cool" unique or different.
Read this from Screen Spy and when you get to the 5th spoiler it seems there may be reasons we hope that "stick" isn't used on Wu and may have reason for us to be very concerned for Monroe. Question will be is it going to be near the end of this season or finale we see that with Monroe or carryover for the sixth season?
I think Wu may not turn into a bludbad as wesen is an innate condition, but I think it may be possible that Wu will turn into a werewolf (for every full moon cycle) if that disease can be transmitted to human like swine flu or bird flu.
Seems like bites are dangerous even on friday nights now. #twd #grimm
Lol, my opinion is that when a human turn into a half-badgermole, a half-shark, a half-bee or a rotten corpse it can be safely assumed that the crucial component of the transformation is magical and not genetic. So the logical conclusion is that the first wesen were created throught magic...
My theory for Wu, is that he will become a Lycanthrope and that as a last resort TeamGrimm will use the wand to cure him. However the wand will only cure the disease and stabilize Wu as a regular blutbad. I think that this is why the wand is so important, because under the right circumstance it can create Wesen. this is why the Grimms hide it from the Royals to prevent them from creating wesen armies.
Oh... So he's still technically human? Edit: Wait! I figured it out! Blutbaden with Lycanthropia are going back to their primal beginnings, before Lycanthropes evolved into Blutbaden. Wu is a human, so he is going back to his primal beginnings, as a Neanderthal (strictly speaking Neanderthals were not ancestors to us but still)

That could be one reason why Lycanthropes attack everything/everyone they see.
Exactly. Although I'm still confused, because Lycanthropia is a recessive trait specific to Blutbaden, so how is it transmittable? It's like "I got cut by someone with Downs syndrome, and now I have Downs". Sorry for the example, it's the only genetic disease I could think of quickly.
Just spitballing here, but with Lycanthropia, we might be dealing with a highly unstable disease. Blutbaden that have it can't control when it manifests, and there has never been a cure found for it. Perhaps there have been very few documented cases of a human getting affected by the disease because most humans that have come into contact with a Lycanthrope haven't lived to tell the tale of their encounter.
Because of that, and the fact that Blutbaden families killed their own who showed signs of having it, the disease might not be as well-understood as it could be. Think Peter Parker turning into Spiderman – the radioactive spider's DNA was unstable and started affecting Peter's DNA immediately. That's sort of why I'm worried that Wu may lose his human form entirely if the disease keeps progressing – it is showing the same unstable qualities in that Wu is unable to control the transformations and onset of symptoms, and the disease is starting to control him, rather than the other way around.
Yeah, maybe it isn't a purely Blutbaden genetic disease based on the fact that most, if not all humans that came in contact with a Lycanthrope died so no one really knows how humans are affected. That'd make things pretty interesting.

The thing is that lycanthrope is not totally a genetic disease, as in the lore of werecreatures, one can become a werewolf or whatever werecreature that exist can inflict a person with lycanthropy with. usually, a bite, but if there is some blood or salvia, a deep scratch can cause the lycanthropy to manifest as well.
So to sum it up, Wu could become a lycanthrope, if he got infected, which I suspect could have happen.
This is a sort of P.S. but when I was researching about lycanthropy and its more appropriate title, Therianthropy, there are four methods that a person can become a werecreature, 1; by magic, making a article, doing a magic spell, a contact with someone or something, etc, 2; a curse by someone or something, 3; being bitten by a werecreature, or 4; being born into a werecreature, meaning that one of your parents is or was a werecreature.
As to how many werecreatures are there, in the world of fiction, the sky is the limit, but for more practical purposes, there are; werewolves, werefoxes, werebears, wererats, werecats/felines. To more or less top it off, anything that can be considered bloodthirsty, which make any carnivore a therianthrope.
