We have not even reached episode 8 of Season 5 and already Adalind and Nick are half in love. The screen writers could have developed that story line more. I get that they have a child together but realistically speaking most relationships are not built on that premise so they could have chosen something else for their romance to go on.
Additionally, the Wesen Council knows of the crap going on with the Black Claw, so they should have beefed up security. Had 3 or 4 persons got up and start shooting I would have understood the logics behind that but one person and there was no one there to do anything to stop it. Additionally no one stopped to checked if persons had weapons. #rolleyes. Another obvious plot twist we all saw coming.
Regarding Nick and Adalind, the only thing I can think of is that the writers wanted to settle the matter instead of doing a typical song and dance of "will they or won't they" for too long. I'm certain it had to do with the writers realising they were at the final stretch of the show and preferred to dedicate most of the writing to their wesen of the week cases as they had daone for seasons past with an underlying arc. Grimm was never about Nick's relationships although they did use them to frame his development from being a plain cop to a Grimm/cop to mostly a Grimm. It feels like he was always reacting to what happened within each relationship especially after S2. I don't think the writers were great at writing romance unless it was Monroe and Rosalee.
Oddly enough I did see the potential with Nick and Adalind to be something quite amazing had they been given the proper build up. I enjoyed them regardless. In the first four seasons, I was never a Juliette fan. I couldn't warm to the character and felt there was something that didn't quite gel with what was depicted of her reationship with Nick. I felt that relationship was more of a chore to watch as they never seemed to be on the same page for too long before dealing with some new drama from Nick's Grimm life culminating with the dumpster fire that was the second half of S4. It didn't help that Juliette was often depicted as whining about her circumstances even though she made the choice to stay with Nick. I blame the writing.
What I find a bit odd is how the writers went out of their way to make Nick and Adalind a sure thing by S6 despite having far more baggage to overcome (insurmountable by other viewers' standards and I understand why) than Nick and Juliette before them where I felt for four seasons the writers seemed to sabbotage them and I'd say unintentionally. S3 is perhaps the only time where they got it right but they quickly ruined them at the end. S4 was another opportunity to right them with Juliette becoming a hexenbiest (now they both could belong in Nick's world and actually be a unit) but the blew that up to smithereens before the end of the seasons.
I believe Nick and Adalind were unintentionally similar in the ways he and Juliette were different, that's why when S5 came and they could finally be in a room without trying to kill one another they automatically drew to one another. S5 certainly played up the importance of family for both characters without putting a name to it until the last episode of the show when Nick thought he'd lost everyone near and dear to him. In short, they wanted the same things in life and weren't put off by the consequences of the world they were both born into and how it related to pursuing a relationship in its wholeness as opposed to him with Juliette, who seemed to have the opposite effect despite being in love and wanting to actually be together for nearly four years of screen time.
Honestly, I disagree. I was rooting for Nick to be able to break through to Eve and for them to wind up together. I'm a Juliette/Nick shipper, especially since Juliette (Eve) has become much more interesting.

While I didn't care if Nick and Juliette/Eve got together, I was thinking that the series might have the gang working and finding a cure for her hexenbiest, and thus restore Juliette back to her former self. I thought they went the weenie route by having Eve make her official declaration that she didn't want to go back to the way things were, whatever. I think if the series had gone into a season seven, there might have been some major changes. Beside that, I didn't like Adalind as the Martha Stewart of the fome. She was really boring and what a waste of a great evil character. Hexenbiests seem like such independent and interesting women. Adalind raising her children by herself her way would have had the series ending on a high note for me.
nick was told ep 1 to dump julliette beucase of the dangers that being with a grimm put on her. those dangers are still present and could happen to adalind. if the show had gone on longer or on to a seventh season than nick would have realzied that he needs to be alone for everone's sake. that being said i always loved julliette for so many reasons but one that stands out is that she loves nick so selflessly. she sacficed for many things for him while adalind never had to make sucha risk. to see nick with julliette is to see devotion. to see nick and adlaind is to see desperation. I also mention that the whole witch enemy having your baby by disguising herself as your lover was copied from once upon a time, and that felt half assed story to beging with.
given what happened no, but I've always hoped that it was just marie's own bias clouding her judgerment. personally julliette's and nick love was the thing i loved most about this show. you want monster fighting and darkness watch supernatural. you want a modern fairy tale watch once upon a time. you want a superbly writtern fanasty show watch buffy or angel. you want a happy ending watch ? but nick and juillette are the cloest I've ever seen to having a hef.hef= happily ever after.
